I am around 4 hours into the game, so far definitely not lacklustre. The combat is quite intense with really large scale boss fights. They retained the great battle system mechanics from multiple past games, e.g. shotlock etc and add in even more crazy things. Voice acting is excellent, characters come alive, Disney esque humour, beautiful graphics - I can even see Sora's clothing texture.
They included a "Memory Archive" in-game for newcomers/important recaps, but may not be sufficient to understand when many of the shocking plots revelations (confirmed by Nomura-san) slowly unravel. So perhaps good to do some homework on YouTube (story summary) or may risk wasting their efforts on plot revelations as it spans across multiple games in the series.
It's very satisfying to perform those acrobatic crazy moves/rage forms/formchanges/attractions etc but I'm worried the combat may get too easy (hopefully not). I'm not used to the buttons configuration (jump is O, attack is X) and I'm unable to find where I can customize it (probably cannot even configure).
I am playing KH1 HD and it's the same button configuration too. Ya, I am also not used to it (better to be X for jump, 口 for attack). My KH1 is R1, PS4 is also R1. Wonder if the convention is different on R3 game/console.
Fortunately these days, there is highly likely an option for you to skip all the cutscenes without being forced to endure through. Haha. To each his own, we all play for different reasons.
In recent years, I tend to look deeper into the plot and when you finally understand it and see things come together, you start to appreciate it even more. Of course, it takes effort and time to digest though, not everyone wants/has the luxury to do so.
Anyways enjoy the game, no matter what you are after!
