GenGAME's official review of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance for Nintendo 3DS is now online. Check out the excerpt below for a summary, and click the link that follows for the score and full review.
Kingdom Hearts fans have been waiting a long time for Kingdom Hearts III. The last numbered entry in the storied franchise appeared six years ago, and since then we’ve had to endure a number of spin-offs, side stories, and rehashes as we waited for the true sequel to the Xehanort saga. Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance doesn’t quite equal a new numbered title, but it comes about as close as a handheld game possibly could, brilliantly setting the stage for the next entry in such a way that I can’t help but wonder whether its mastermind, Tetsuya Nomura, had the series planned out in advance.
Of course, it’s how the game plays that matters – and in the case of Dream Drop Distance, there’s plenty to love for Disney fans, followers of the franchise, and 3DS gamers hungry for some good RPG action…you just might have to get past a few of its more questionable gameplay and design decisions in the process.
