    Much like what Arkham Asylum did for Batman games, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sets the new standard for Star Wars titles. Not only is it a great Star Wars game, it is also the best game of the year.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order captured the magic of growing as a Jedi, overcoming insurmountable odds through fellowship, and the power of hope in the midst of despair. If Respawn’s delivery of Jedi: Fallen Order is the future of the Star Wars franchise out of EA, the franchise is in incredible hands. The Force is strong with these ones.

    Being an EA game, albeit developed by Respawn Entertainment, I had some doubts, but they were quickly dispelled. It stands as proof that single-player games can stand on their own. The only problem is that if you rush through it, you could finish Fallen Order in about 12 hours, but that excludes finding the secrets and unlocking all the cool stuff. Lastly, I have to mention the name, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. To me, it sounds like Star Wars Jedi could be a new line of games, with Fallen Order being just the first one. We can only dream.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the Star Wars game that fans have been crying out for years now. While it doesn't do anything new, its clear inspirations from Dark Souls and Tomb Raider have helped to create an epic, sprawling adventure that'll have you ready for more the moments the credits roll. If only there had been more of it, because once I started, I didn't want to stop.

    An excellent entry into the new Star Wars canon.

    Respawn did nothing to reinvent the wheel, but instead married a bunch of popular gameplay genres together into a cohesive whole, wrapped up in well-crafted Star Wars story. It may not be KOTOR levels of greatness, but it's good. And I think that's exactly what fans needed right about now.

    As underwhelmed as I was by Fallen Order, I hope that its inevitable success will encourage EA to do more with this franchise, since it makes a powerful case for the resonance of Star Wars — if this mediocre casserole of concepts yanked from superior titles didn’t have the license attached, I doubt anyone would be talking about it.

A significant earlyYour adventure through this game will be similar to the experience the game has trying to figure out what it wants to be. A significant early portion will be spent solving puzzles in tombs, exploring, and looking for secrets and chests in complex mapping systems that can be difficult to navigate, While the later game is much more linear, with smaller maps and a much more more story driven experience. The combat starts with an ideological perry/dodge system, which while some may call challenging and unforgiving, I sway more towards sloppy and poorly designed, Which makes little difference anyways because it can be slowly forgotten about as you gain abilities to throw entire waves of enemies off cliffs. If you are a Star Wars fan, you will be more then pleased with the inclusion of references and memories to popular events and characters, as well as fantastic original characters whom are very welcome into the SW universe with top notch acting and fleshed out stories.

    Overall a very solid effort, and while the combat system and early map progression can leave a lot to be desired, I think the redeeming factors are enough to keep this game very enjoyable.

Some optimization would have gone a long way in making this a better game, but the bugs and slow downs too often interrupt the experience. Most of the time the game is running 60 + fps for me and often about 70 fps @ 1440p/Ultra setting. It looks very good and smooth until you hit a slow down point where the CPU (not GPU) maxes out. I'm sure a faster CPU could probably solve the problem, but my CPU is well within the specs for this game.

    The good, this is a Metroidvania style game and for those that like the genre its great to see a Star Wars entry into the genre. Of course it also has some Dark Souls elements and increased difficulty compared to most in the genre, but, it is much more forgiving than Dark Souls games. The force abilities are where the Metroidvania style come into play, while there is a skill tree, there are certain force abilities that are unlocked only by playing through the story. They open up new areas each time you get one which of course means that you will need to go back and explore. A nice feature is that the map is very good and it shows locations that are now accessible that were not before, so while there is back tracking, there is not the problem of trying to remember every place to use your new skill. For the most part the platforming is pretty fun and sometimes challenging, but you feel like you have pretty good control over the character.

    Overall, its a great entry into the Metroidvania genre and a great Star Wars game.

I have those mixed feelings of wanting to see what happens next because I'm enjoying a lot, and the "oh, I most slow down, i'm getting closer and closer to the end".

    In general the game is a platform genre game, where you have times where you have to look around the map to see how do you have to get to the next area, but nothing difficult in general, but a few puzzles takes some time to resolve.
    There are also lots of fights, that are well executed. The "normal" fights against a vast variety of stormptroopers and creatures are difficult enough to make them entertraining. You have also abilities you learn through out the game by a level buying system (idk how its called). The boss fights will take your time. They are hard and you will have to learn through a lot of tries how to beat your enemy. Patience is your friend.

    The levels/planets takes their time to be completed, and at all moments you feel like you are really in a Star Wars adventure movie. They made an excellent ambientation, and the levels are well designed in my opinion. All of them are quiet unique. Graphically, this game is beautiful.

    The history isn't any less than the gameplay in general. It's the best part of the game for the game, and thats a lot to say taking in count the gameplay it has. I enjoyed it from beggining to end.
