Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance Review (3DS)
8 October 2012
Conclusion: Kingdom Hearts 3D should be played by old and newcomers alike. The game serves as an excellent jumping point to get into the series. The game has glossaries and excellent flash backs of the older games to get you caught up. This is the best version of the battle system and will provide you with hours of game play and won’t leave you disappointed if you’re looking for something to keep you entertained until the summer drought of games is over.
Pros: The latest entry in the series brings about some colossal changes, from the get go you’ll see these things unfold. The new "Flowmotion" system is the meat, it’s juicy and it’s tasty as hell. Each time you get into a battle it’s remarkably satisfying and energetic and most of all frantic. Being an RPG, you level up as you go along and progress through each world, the new “Dream Eaters” feature adds a new layer, where these creatures double as your battle partners, and...
Cons: Kingdom Hearts 3D is another side story. Seriously after ten years this series feels stretched thin and has dumped more needless plot into the mix. The one thing the majority of the fan base wants is a proper sequel on the console. The new features are thrown at you way too fast, and are bundled together. The first area serves as a tutorial and with that every new feature along with that. You’ll end up forgetting something after and for no good reason. The “drop” syst...
Conclusion: Overall, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is an enticing action-RPG adventure that will take you on an eye-popping romp through classic Disney locales and have you swinging your keyblade to no end in its fantastic battling system. But for all it does right, it will still manage to leave a sour taste in your mouth at times.
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance (3DS) - Review
5 August 2012
Excerpt: Well, it’s about time. It's been six years since Kingdom Hearts 2 , and in that time we’ve seen a prequel, a side-story, and… whatever the heck Re:Coded was. After all this time, we’ve finally got a direct sequel to the second game. We’re back in control of Sora and Riku, beating up the forces of darkness with our keyblades and saving the girl (okay, I made that last one up).
Excerpt: Kingdom Hearts sure has come a long way. From its debut back on the PS2, it has seen releases on the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, PSP and now the 3DS. While I wasn't that much impressed with the earlier iterations of the handheld Kingdom Hearts games, namely Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and even Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days , I really loved Birth By Sleep .
Excerpt: series has been notorious for having one of the most ridiculously convoluted storylines and even more for improperly explaining the mythos. Though to be quite honest I didn’t find this until I played the three or so side stories on the DS and PSP, which really complicated things. Regardless, anyone can get some kind of fun out of a game that mashes together Disney’s greatest properties with some of Square Enix’s best too, which is something I’ve always respected from the...

Summary: Parents need to know Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance is a cartoon-like fantasy role-playing game, but there is a heavy emphasis on violence. It's not graphic or bloody, but third-person combat makes up the bulk of the gameplay. Don't be fooled by the cute Disney characters as there is sword (Keyblade) slashing and magic attacks used to defeat enemies.
