    Or they could just cut out all the Disney and Final Fantasy characters and market it as a generic ARPG with a bad story.

    Considering everybody ONLY talks about the original characters, what's the point of the annoying Disney and Final Fantasy characters? Their crossovers are irrelevant anyway.

    Literally the only things it adds is slapstick humor that would make a two year old laugh and some bland ass characters with terribly annoying voices. Other than that it's just for set pieces that I guess Square Enix are too lazy to make more interesting ones for so their like "Fuck it, use some Disney crap".

    Less friendship, more emotional losses imo.

    Kingdom Hearts is too generic to be saved.

    It's not really generic, it's certainly different, but it's just bad.

    Also Kingdom Hearts would be a whole lot better if the entire fanbase just croaked currently. They're seriously one of the reasons I hate the genre. I'd associate myself with CoD fratboys or Dragon Ball Z diehards before I'd associate myself with the Kingdom Hearts fanbase.

    I would indeed agree with this notion, Kingdom Hearts is something that should never have existed on this planet despite being made by a good dev the disney garbage makes it a generic peace of childish shit.
    The worst part is that it keeps getting those stupid spin offs, to lazy to make a proper sequel but just spamming crappy spin offs.


    I secretly find it quite enjoyable though the main series that is.

    Believe us when we say you are not the only one Hyro-Sama- the only franchises that cause more worry to GBAtemp like sites, rom hackers playing in translation and flash cart support staff are pokemon and mario RPGs with a possible handful of zelda (I was not really around for the skyward sword release and the last few around here were DS releases sorted quickly enough). Seen as I arguably have a toe in all three of those worlds I must reflexively despise it and on occasion I try to fight such urges but having given them a spin on at least four platforms I can safely say it is justified. In fact I will go one further than the opening quote and say although perfectly functional the mechanics are nothing to write home about.

    Of course with a minor exception for some PC minigames I can fairly safely say disney have not made a truly good game since the 16 bit era (ports do not count here and Tron: Evolution will be forgotten long before Aladdin and World Of Illusion is).

    Or Square Enix could just devote their resources to developing/publishing good games; I'd be satisfied with that.

    And for anyone willing, here is a simplified summary of the series' plot. Just a heads up, it's 41 pages long.

    I get it now!! I didn't play much of the spin-offs, because I thought it made the story too complicated, but now that I read that I get the gist.
    After seeing that, I now look forward to the conclusion of this.

    Hoping Square Enix will make good games nowadays is like hoping Apple doesn't make overrated/over-hyped products; it ain't gonna happen.

    All hail Nomura-san. But seriously, I expected some hate for the game but it seems on this site, that there's no love for the game.

    Exactly why I am looking forward to FF13 Versus. From what I have been reading in interviews, it'll play like a more 'realistic' version of Kingdom Hearts. I enjoyed the gameplay, but the overdone/forced cameos of those 'delightful' Disney Heroes and Final Fantasy characters just got to me. The story could have likely still worked if they replaced Disney with some original group of characters from another world, and if they scrapped the whole Disney movie worlds and just made them themed worlds based on different settings.

    Anyway, I didn't like my quest to save King Mickey with the help of Donald & Goofy in the original so I stopped. As simple as that :)
