Yeah fair enough, I’ll try it out when I start KH2 then. :) thanks!
Keep in mind that most people who answer you here are hardcore KH fans who have played the game a ton and really care about playing it in its most difficult form. Personally I do not, and don't take stock in that. Play the way that gives you the most enjoyment. If you only care about story, Standard is just fine.

Maybe it's because I'm rusty but I had a semi-difficult time with KH3 on Proud at points. I never had to really regroup or go back and grind levels but none if the fights were definitive one sided fights for me

I just beat the game on Proud and I gotta say, I’m more happy with the difficulty now than I was in the first few worlds. It felt really easy at first, just screen clearing things with all the situation commands but it was way more fun when I stopped using attraction flow and late game bosses never had attraction flow anyways. Died on a few bosses but I was never frustrated with it the way I was when I was younger with the first couple of games. The battle system is fun for bosses but I kind of feel there weren’t enough boss fights for me to enjoy, really missing Colosseum right now.

I think
it's very back loaded with bosses. In that last segment alone you have demon tide, all 13 darknesses, the 13 xehanorts, armor xehanort, and standard xehanort.

The 13 xehanorts and demon tide gave me the most trouble

Completely agree. They should have spread the battles around and gave you some team attacks with everyone. I’m really missing KHII Limits and Data Battles right now because it just wasn’t satisfying fighting the Darknesses in groups. It felt like they had few animations and so did the teammates.

I had some trouble with Armored and Final Xehanort battles, especially when you were forced to go into Rage Form.

There's a story explanation for this but you need to watch 358/2 Days to get it.
The explanation they gave
for his ability to dual-wield in Days/KH2 no longer applies once Roxas becomes his own person, nor does the reason behind him having two Keyblades. Don't get me wrong, we all expected him to come back as a dual wielder but it still doesn't make sense lol. I'm sure Nomura will pull something out to explain it away, as he does.

I guess in this instance rather than the replica (which didn't have a personality or anything, unlike Repliku), it could be Data Roxas' heart? It sort of makes sense, I think. Provided you don't think too hard about it.
whatever explanation that gives him two hearts will kinda make him broken and put him in a sora situation where he’ll have to be separated from that heart lol, i’d rather believe both keyblades are just one split in two halfs for cosmetic purposes, he’s not carrying xion’s heart anymore to justify having both, after all. They did use the data from data roxas tho, so yeah... thats complicated lol

I'm back, man, I missed you guys. I just finished the game yesterday and thought it was great. I wished the game was harder. On proud, it felt like playing on Standard. The Ultima weapon keyblade is outrageously broken, even beaten the secret boss on the first try.

people are really concerned about this? must be nice to have such small worries in the world. ;)

Yeah you make a good point, I love KH and I bought a PS2 for KH1 but due to life and everything I've only finished KH1, KH358/2 Days, and recently KH Re:CoM even though I have every game. I think my plan is to play through them all this year, but I'm playing KH3 now. :)

Magic is pretty fun in KH3, but I don't know if I'm spamming too much since my MP runs out so fast. I just finished the first world last night though so it's still early into the game.

The last I wanna say 1/4th of that game really lets it down. And it does so in a way that's disappointing cause you can see where if they just gave certain things another go over/expanded it, it'd be fantastic. The first 3/4ths are great though.

Those boss fights should’ve been 1v1 idc

I don't mind the party fights, but I wish they let you play as the keyblade users doing the fights. Like how you were able to control Aqua and Riku for a while. Having Sora show up in every single fight to save them was kinda lame lol. It made everyone besides Sora look weak.

Well, I just picked up KH 1.5 + 2.5 on PSN (wish I had caught the sale a few weeks back). I have never played any KH or FF game all the way through. Very little time with both series, in fact. I will catalog my thoughts here as I make it through the first game !

So, dark Aqua screen time is literally 5 minutes.
OK.
Not just that, but she wasn't even slowly corrupted over time, she just happened to be knocked into the pool of darkness like an hour before the gang showed up to save her. She would have been fine if Yen Sid had allowed that "reckless attempt at rescue".

this plot section after big hero 6 has been a mess, we rescued aqua and Ventus in 30 minutes top, so much for a castle oblivion world.
Ah, and Aqua jobbing for Ventus, thanks Nomura.
