Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory is the latest entry in a series that tends to do its own thing, confounding fan expectations as it goes. Instead of the next proper installment in the Kingdom Hearts series, Melody of Memory is a rhythm game that revisits some of the best music in Square Enix’s long-running Disney mashup. While your enjoyment of the game will depend almost entirely on how much you like Kingdom Hearts’ soundtrack, there’s no denying that Melody of Memory accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do.

I played through a demo of Kingdom Hearts: Memory of Melody, which will be available for free on PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch within the next few days. (The full game will debut on November 13, and cost $60). The demo is pretty spare, with only a few songs and no story mode to speak of. However, it did give me a good idea of what to expect from the gameplay, with three selectable difficulties and a peek at how character-building works.
