So, after having completed the story and seen the epilogue, I have mixed feelings about it. The worlds are beautiful in design and a lot of the new enemies are really well designed. The Gummi Ship is now more fun than it has ever been and is a far cry from the boring, slow paced flights from the first game. Being able to fly in pretty much any direction gives a whole new feel to the travel mechanic. The stories for the individual worlds are, for the most part, a lot better than in most of the other games. The only exception being Tangled which felt very boring to me as it kept the most boring parts of the movie as the world's plot. My favorite world is easily the Carribean as you FINALLY get to sail the open sea on a ship as well as being able to swim underwater with mechanics that don't suck. I am disappointed that we don't fight any of the main baddies until the final clash between the guardians of light and the vessels of darkness, but the fights against the few Disney villains we clash with as well as the monster bosses more than make up for it. The 100 Acre Woods felt EXTREMELY tacked on and can easily be skipped
I am getting annoyed with Nomura. I was most eager to find out more about the Master, what was in the black chest, who trained Eraqus and Xehanort, how/why Xehanort's eyes went from gray to the color we see in all the bad guys, and how Xehanort became a chosen wielder of the keyblade if he lived on Destiny Islands all his life.
