I’ve put a good 13 hours into Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance now and so I feel comfortable telling you that it’s awesome. With that said, If you’re going to play it you need to put up with the wonky camera, the ridiculous story, the complicated nested menus, and systems piled on top of systems. Trust me though, buried under all that crap is a lot of gold. The combat system is fast and fun, the Pokemon style monster collection is great, the Flick Rush card battle game could be sold all by itself, and visually the entire game is just gorgeous.
Kingdom Hearts is a strange series. I find that people either love it or hate it. On some level I realize that I’m being manipulated. It’s fanservice and if you don’t love Disney you probably just look at the KH series and shake your head. I can’t really explain why getting to jump into all these Disney worlds is such a thrill for me. Think about it this way though: What if it wasn’t Disney, what if it was Nintendo? What if Sora’s Keyblade let him fight alongside Link and Samus in their worlds? What if he battled Bowser and collected actual Pokemon? What if Donkey Kongklajhsd
Sorry, I just blacked out there for a second.
I need to go lay down.
