Game Informer: 9.5/10
With higher stakes, Kingdom Hearts III is a lot of spectacle in the best way possible. It isn't afraid to go big, but it also doesn't forget what made fans fall in love in the first place
For all the new in Kingdom Hearts 3, there is plenty of the old too. The action combat is more satisfying than it's ever been, even if it's a tad easy to skate through the main storyline. For longtime fans of the series, all those emotional payoffs that have been building for 17 years await. For newcomers, buckle up: because you're in for a wild ride of bonkers Disney interactions and some exciting boss battles.
Kingdom Hearts 3 is a fulfilling evolution and resolution of the franchise that shows it's still full of heart.
IGN Italy: 9/10
Visually stunning, Kingdom Hearts III it's all about being cool while delivering us the best conclusion for a long-time series.
Sora, Donald, and Goofy return in Kingdom Hearts 3, and while their story may be hard to follow, it's a fun one to experience nonetheless.
Still madder than a box of frogs, but its magical Disney charms make it worth the long wait
Press Start: 9/10
Kingdom Hearts III takes the series to astonishing new heights. With exhilarating combat, fantastic Disney worlds and a smart approach to an unavoidably convoluted story, it does everything it needs to not only please hardcore fans but anyone up for a solid action JRPG. Against all odds, this might be the perfect Kingdom Hearts game.
The Disney side is still the best side of Kingdom Hearts, and Kingdom Hearts III nails that part. But even it's story, as ridiculous as it is, gives fans emotional moments and satisfaction. I wouldn't say it's better than Kingdom Hearts or Kingdom Hearts II, but Kingdom Hearts III is magical enough to resonate with this big Disney geek.
Polygon: No Score!
Kingdom Hearts 3 ends the series with a whimper
Eurogamer Italy: 8/10
Kingdom Hearts 3 had all the ingredients to shine as one of the best entries in the series, but doesn't seem to find a proper narrative pacing.
Kingdom Hearts III is exactly what we expected it it be: an amazing game we’ve enjoyed from the very first second to the very last one. We would’ve liked to see a bigger challenge or more relevant extra content, but even so, it’s the perfect closure for an era.
