8. Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
Kingdom Hearts celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, and Dream Drop Distance marks that in a masterful way. Kingdom Hearts 3D tries to take everything that the series has done so far and wrap it all up, getting players ready for Kingdom Hearts 3, and it does so in an admirable way. The combat is crazier and better than ever, and the story clears up a lot of questions and finally moves the main narrative along. In 3D you control both Sora and Riku as you “drop” into sleeping worlds to restore them.
In these worlds new enemies called ‘Dream Eaters’ confront you, at the same time you recruit some of these Dream Eaters to help you. With this surprisingly fun monster collecting system, the new flow-motion combat system, and the story, Kingdom Hearts 3D manages to be one of the most fun entries in the entire series and it also does a commendable job of reminding fans what has happened in the series. One thing is for sure, no fan should miss Kingdom Hearts 3D, and the fact that we know Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming is reason enough to be excited.
