wow, cheapest price yet. was this game really THAT bad? seems a bit too soon to drop to this price point... i have a feeling it sold very poorly (for s-e standards) for it to get slashed like this... black friday might see it drop even further. with the dlc releasing in a few months, it may get a compelte edition down the road, so i might just wait it out. not too eager to jump into this one with the lukewarm reaction it has received amongst the fans.

edit: apparently this is the best selling entry in the series lol... ok then.

It wasn't bad, just felt more like fan services driven then actual story. I know a bunch of people who got the game just to play it for seeing disney characters

@Brewmeanie based on the trailers it looked good visually. the story is another thing altogether but nobody really understands the story anyways. the one main criticism i hear is that it is a cakewalk and beyond brainless and easy with regards to the level of challenge on the default settings.

They also left out all the Final Fantasy characters except for flashbacks.

An entire series that basically started as a Disney/FF crossover with the story centered around some original characters, left out the FF characters in its final installment.

The series went full Disney which makes me sad.
The crossover parts were the best thing about Kingdom hearts.
Sephiroth cloud and squall were awesome in the first 2 games.

It was a purposefully half-finished game. Along with the exclusion of FF characters, challenge, and content, they gutted story to release as DLC, much like FFXV. Expect something similar to FFXV's Royal Edition in the future.

Huh, I picked it up a few days ago but haven't opened it. If they removed all the Final Fantasy characters I'll just return it, that was the whole hook that got me to enjoy the series.

Edit: Good price though, not a knock on the OP! Just not for me if it isn't full of cameos by FF characters.

I never had any performance issues. But then again, i play on PS4 pro.

I got this game on release. While the game is pretty and the gameplay is what you'd expect from a KH game.... the complete lack of final fantasy characters was a huge let down.

It baffles me how this could be the case given the exceedingly long development time of this particular title.

Maybe all the DLC was coded pre-launch also?

Everyone is so used to these tactics (well true RFD'ers anyhow) that even though I want to buy a game such as Mortal Kombat 11, I know I'm better served to wait for the GOTY complete edition with all the DLC that will certainly show up at some point at half the price or less. If all this DLC was free in the first place, these companies would see much higher day 1 purchases and early adopters.
RFD: Pick any two.

1) In stock
2) Low Price
3) Quality Product

wtf really? Lol I thought about getting a PS4 just to play Kingdom Hearts 3. I was obsessed with it as a kid, I remember getting EGM magazine reading about KH2 and Metal Gear Solid 3 leaks.

And that was in 2006, it took them 13 years to get another game out when originally it was supposed to be 3 years. Totally lost interest in it now.

The FF parts of the series were always a small portion of each game anyways. Still a good game imo

Yep, bought that a few weeks ago when the PS4 price dropped, but it's difficult to find a copy now, especially sealed.
My last and final digital game I purchased at PSN from those Sony Devils was on November 22, 2020 - Ban that Sorny!

Developers still pretend like they've pretended since they've started the content cutting for the sake of DLC, they say "it wasn't in the original plan" or "it didn't fit into the feel of the game" but more often than not it's all lies, DLC is content that is intentionally omitted from the word go to drain extra money from the players, to keep the game "relevant"(aka on bought 'Tubers channels) months after release, especially if the game is single player, which the "influencers" have worn out, with previews and early reviews and streams, before us plebs even get a chance to play a minute of it.

The industry is broken.

Waitng for GOTY editions is the really only way to combat this, if you can fend off the FOMO(fear of missing out) which 'Tubers and all media impress upon gamers so well, then you should wait.

Does anyone remember when games were shipped complete?

I'm sure some people still remember when GOTY meant said game actually won GAME OF THE YEAR from publications.
