I'll make the thread since no one else has in a week. I've only played the first half hour or so since I need to still beat BBS(on Aqua's campaign, almost done). I thought the Ursula fight at the beginning was a little random and out of place since they're supposed to be in the waters of the Destiny Islands, plus bringing a Disney villain into the segment of the game's story kind of muddled up the original KH feel that it had going, at least in my opinion. There are three branches of KH, as far as I'm concerned: Original(Sora, Riku, Xehanort, etc.), Final Fantasy(Leon, Cloud, Yuffie, etc.) and Disney(Ursula, Aladdin, Mulan, etc.) Mickey, Yen Sid, Goofy, Donald, Jiminy, etc. are exceptions that can exist anywhere. Original and Final Fantasy can be anywhere in the universe as well. But I feel that all the other Disney stuff needs to be in their respective worlds. I'm the type of KH fan that wants the series to be MORE FF/Original and LESS Disney. But I digress, one man's opinion. I did think the Ursula portion was at least a pretty competent tutorial(which I played for fun despite being a grizzled KH vet). The combat is as fluid as ever, the graphics are pretty great for the 3DS. I very much enjoyed seeing Neku in Traverse Town, hearing TWEWY music blasting from his headphones was some pretty upbeat nostalgia. Flowmotion seems a little unnecessaary, at least right now, but good for SE for at least trying to put some pizazz in the tried and true formula. I stopped there, just wanted to try it out, but I'll be eager to return after finally beating BBS.
