Jedi: Fallen Order is my first Star Wars game that I’ve played since Lego Star Wars on the Wii as a kid. And let me tell you, I had an absolute blast playing it. It reminds me of all the reasons why I love this franchise. EA had a lot to prove and they gave us something great. I like the Assassin’s Creed/Tomb Raider like gameplay. It complements Star Wars very well. And you can’t go wrong with fast spinning lightsabers.
Combat took some getting used to, but once you get a handle on it, it becomes much more immersive. It’s much more tactical than most and requires some patience instead of just plowing through everything. Which to me, makes it much more unique. It’s not super hard but certain boss fights can be very challenging. Not throw my controller challenging, but to the extent that I’d have to learn from my mistakes and adjust my approach to the battle. Just like a Jedi!
Each planet is unique and fun to explore.
Story was familiar but great to play through. Pretty sure I loved all the new characters and can’t wait for their story to continue. Platforming was fun and intense at times. I enjoyed collecting all the cosmetics and learning about the new worlds and characters. All in all, I loved it. It’s the single player Star Wars experience I’ve needed for a long time. In my mind, the best Star Wars game I’ve ever played. It made me feel like I was in a galaxy far far away.
Buy it or rent it just to see what you think, and may the force be with you.
