    Virtually perfect in its storytelling, performances, presentation, authenticity, fun factor, and respect for its unfathomably important and historic entertainment licence, Jedi: Fallen Order stands not only as the greatest Star Wars game of all time, but as one of the greatest games ever made. This is the Star Wars game we were looking for.

    This is the Star Wars game we've all been waiting for. It takes the best elements of Tomb Raider, Metroidvanias, and a dash of souls-likes to create a memorable and fun experience with amazing combat that makes you feel like a true Jedi.

    Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is a game worthy of Star Wars name, and although it is released by EA, there is no sign of in-app purchases and there is no requirement to connect to the internet. It’s just a rich, deep, good old action adventure title that we don’t come across very often anymore.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen order does justice to the Star Wars universe with an enjoyable mix of features and an intriguing story. It doesn't end up being particularly original and it might have been more polished, but it still emerges as one of the best games of 2019 and definitely one of the best Star Wars games of this generation.

    Just by virtue of being a single-player game, with no multiplayer, no online component, no microtransactions, and no planned DLC, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order feels like a relic from a more civilized age.

    The product offered here is good, but not quite as brilliant as it could have been.

    On paper, these elements add up to one of the most elaborate and original Star Wars games in a very long time, but poor performance, a multitude of minor bugs, and a pervasive sense that swaths of the game are just lacking in refinement all undermine what would otherwise be an easy game to recommend.

Sometimes frustratingly hard (the boss battles until you learn the intricacies then get into the flow), but incredibly rewarding with almost every moment presenting a rich, lush photo opportunity with photo mode.

    Amazingly fluid combat and traversing, with movie like seamlessly blended cinematics.

    I'm genuinely in aw of the incredible passion and polish that the team at Respawn have put into this game.

    Thanks for the memories and the hundreds of screenshots left on my harddrive (although xbox limitations deleted some of my best work until I got a capture drive!)

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Alright this my first review for any game.

    My hopes were a little Dim and dull about this game when I was hearing about it, I didn’t trust EA with a single player RPG set during the same time as the force unleashed and Rogue one, I was hesitant to see how they’d make a cannon storyline that wouldn’t interfere with the movies.

    I can say that this Game succeeds as an amazing Star Wars experience, the issues with the game are merely with the Combat and the lack of more customization with Kal Kestis.

    Storyline it made perfect sense and gave me a perspective that I thought I already knew about but seeing the flashbacks where Kal remembers his master Jaro Topal training him and then order 66 being issued and witnessing it through the eyes of a Padawan and literally feeling powerless the first few boss fights. EA won me back over with this game they made a great game with an amazing storyline and it shows that they literally learned from the mistakes of the past games and they put time and effort into learning the whole Star Wars universe, the amount of detail into the worlds especially Dathomir blew me away.

    Overall I give it a 9/10 would’ve been 7/10 due to the combat being aggravating at times and the fact that the biggest customization I have is the damn poncho... but the storyline after finishing the game it deserves no less then a 9/10 because they respected the lore.

If you're just playing it for the lightsaber combat, you'llThis is an amazing Star Wars game, but just a fairly servicable game overall. If you're just playing it for the lightsaber combat, you'll definitely get your money's worth because there's plenty of it and it handles it better than any previous Star Wars game. This game has some serious white-knuckling combat. It often made me furious, but it was exhilirating nonetheless.

    But I do feel like they put all their eggs in one basket, because everything else is just kinda okay. The story is pretty awesome with some great motion-capture performances from a relatively small cast of characters. I love having this story that's neatly wedged between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, where the architecture of both trilogies are prevalent. I do think the narrative is pretty frontloaded though and drags by the end. That could be in conjunction with my constant deaths making me grow increasingly impatient, but I also do think the 2nd half of the game has a lot of "go here, now go here, now go back here." All of the best set-pieces are in the beginning, which I would say peaks at the Kashyyk sequence, and after that I was ready for the game to wrap it up. The finale is suitably epic though, and really makes me wish the story could've flourished in between.

    I'd say the worst part of this game is how the gameplay commits to being a jack of all trades, and ends up being average in everything. The puzzles are very shallow clones of Zelda and the Arkham games. The parkour mechanics very clearly inspired by Uncharted and the Tomb Raider games, but lacking the excitement and grip that those ones have. Both these elements end up making exploration feel strangely empty, and very rarely do the environments feel naturally designed. Every room feels like the next sequence, rather than discovering an actual world you can believe and desire exploring.

    I'd say it's required playing for a Star Wars fan, just seeing how this story fits into the mythos is satisfying enough. But I would say the videogame itself is just average. I'm already not a fan of these Dark Souls combat type games and shoehorning games types that I like didn't enrich the experience at all. And I feel even someone who is a fan of those games has played better versions of it. I mostly enjoyed playing it, but I probably won't ever revisit it again. I'll definitely play the sequel though, as I'm excited to see how they improve it!
