Kingdom Hearts 3 | A Dad Review

Kingdom hearts is a hugely popular game collaborating the world of final fantasy and Disney and began life many years ago on the PS2, since then it continued to grow in popularity and is a cult favourite for some. It’s available on both Xbox and PS4, this was also on the Xbox Gamer Pass on which this review was based around.

This was a very different game for Tigger to play, he does enjoy adventure style games but he has never played anything like this, so I was keen to see how he gets on with it, it’s not my type of game, I do enjoy adventure games and especially RPG but I’m more about D&D and classic fantasy style like Warcraft, Guildwars, Elder Scrolls. However, I was intrigued by how he would get on with, its different graphics and though it’s Disney it’s not overly kiddish.

What they say

“Kingdom Hearts III is the third main instalment in the Kingdom Hearts series developed and published by Square Enix. It was initially released in January 2019 for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. An expansion, Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind was released in January 2020”

“The story takes place after the events of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. It features an older Sora as the main protagonist, who sets forth on a new adventure to search for seven guardians of light in an attempt to stop Xehanort from bringing about a second Keyblade War. Sora is joined by Donald Duck, Goofy, Mickey Mouse, Riku, Kairi, and others. Along the way, Sora travels to many worlds from Disney and Pixar intellectual properties, and cross paths with the real Organization XIII”

“Kingdom Hearts III features hack and slash combat reminiscent of Kingdom Hearts II, with elements from later handheld entries, allowing the player to control Sora in a party with Donald, Goofy, and up to two other Disney characters from the various worlds he visits. A major addition compared is the Formchange mechanic, which allows his currently equipped Keyblade to grant him special abilities and change shape. Sora can equip up to three Keyblades at a time, and cycle between them to use his abilities.

Another addition is the Attractions mechanic, which occasionally allows Sora to summon and pilot a vehicle inspired by Disney theme park attractions. At certain points throughout the game, the player will be able to control other characters”

What Tigger Says

Kingdom Hearts 3 is all about saving the world from the heartless. There is only one mode and it is a Story mode, in story mode, you start by standing on a massive stained glassed window in the shape of a princess. Through the level you have to save people and protect them, you will see some of the most iconic Disney characters of all time, but you do not get to play as them. I like the game because I get to see loads of Disney characters, and I like the storyline.

Top Tips

When your being attacked put Donald as “stick by you” so he can heal you

Link one of your characters to make a special move to help while you’re being attacked.


Though the game is a bit hack and slashes with some extra RPG like abilities etc, it is enjoyable, its really a single-player long story type of game meeting lots of Disney characters in classic Disney film locations, which is really neat and great for fans. Like Tigger said you can to play with those characters you meet so it gets a little frustrating but it’s not the point of the game, and for me, it’s nice that Donald and Goofy take centre stage in games as often its always been Mickey, so this series is good.

These days you might be limited with kiddies games or those games that are between younger kids and adults, but this fills the gaps, and its quality can bridge towards adults, being Disney do not think its a sub-5-year-old game, it’s not, Piglet watches Tiggger play but she can’t, it’s a bit complicated for her.
