A galaxy-spanning adventure awaits in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, a new 3rd person action-adventure title from Respawn Entertainment. This narratively-driven single player game puts you in the role of a Jedi Padawan who narrowly escaped the purge of Order 66 following the events of Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith. On a quest to rebuild the Jedi Order, you must pick up the pieces of your shattered past to complete your training, develop new powerful Force abilities, and master the art of the iconic lightsaber - all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors.
While mastering your abilities, players will engage in cinematically-charged lightsaber and Force combat designed to deliver the kind of intense Star Wars lightsaber battles as seen in the films. Players will need to approach enemies strategically, sizing up strengths and weaknesses while cleverly utilizing your Jedi training to overcome your opponents and solve the mysteries that lay in your path.
Star Wars fans will recognize iconic locations, weapons, gear, and enemies while also meeting a roster of fresh characters, locations, creatures, droids and adversaries new to Star Wars. As part of this authentic Star Wars story, fans will delve into a galaxy recently seized by the Empire. As a Jedi hero-turned-fugitive, players will need to fight for survival while exploring the mysteries of a long-extinct civilization all in an effort to rebuild the remnants of the Jedi Order as the Empire seeks to erase the Jedi completely.
There is no pleasing Star Wars fans. Nothing will ever be good enough for them, so I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised that this game has such low reviews.... but I still was because this is one of the best games I have played in years. The graphics are amazing when it cuts to the cinematic scenes you feel like you are watching a movie. The story is compelling, I was sucked into Cal's story and his motivations immediately and wanted to keep playing to reveal more. The game play is really fun and as you progress you unlock more awesome lightsaber moves and force abilities. This is not Force Unleashed - you are not Starkiller - meaning yes, the average storm trooper can kill you. You cannot just button mash this game, you have an ability tree and glass cannon is not the way to go in this game. You also have an awesome companion in the form of the droid BD-1 who helps to heal you as you traverse a vast universe - a lot of this game is running around/exploring that type of thing. If that is not for you - then neither is this game. I only gave it four starts for gameplay because there are some glitchy issues and bugs, but overall I did not experience too many.
Facial animations are atrocious. The combat is a poor imitation of better games. What passes for a story in this game is bland, nonsensical and pointless.
Want to use The Force? Better play halfway through the game just to be able to use force push. Force lightning? Nope. But you can use the Force to wall run and solve puzzles. Wooo?
Hit an enemy with a lightsaber and they shrug it off but if you get hit, well you better be ready to get laid out. The block and counter system is ripped right out of the Batman Arkham games but not done nearly half as well. The lightsaber in this game acts more like a shiny baton than a lightsaber.
Crashes, glitches, and various other bugs just mean this is another unfinished game rushed out the door before it was ready. The load times are extreme for iteresting in theory locations but the half baked execution of everything in the game makes this title a massive waste of time.
as a star wars fan, i was pretty excited to learn about this game. To date, the only other 2 star wars games for the current gen consoles are Battlefront and Battlefront 2. Both games are excellent as well, and worth playing, but back to Fallen Order.
I havent played too much of this game, but enough i feel to give a good review on it.
Graphics: for the most part, this game has excellent graphics! there are times that the environment may seem a little "dated" or that you look and are just very aware it is a videogame. With the technology and gaming engines some companies use (especially EA), some games look very real.
gameplay: The gameplay on this is decently smooth. The 3rd person view is nice, but there's times that your view is more from a side angle and you get thrown off, or you are attacking enemies and you get killed by one that was outside your field of view, but it doesn't ruin the experience
Story: again, i haven't gotten too far into the story, and won't to avoid spoilers, but this game has alot to do and explore. There's crates to look for in each world you visit that you can find parts to your lightsaber and customize it. The little time i played i found it hard to stop lol, but there's that thing called work that i had to go to :)
Overall this seems to be a solid game. I am not sure if there's multiplayer or not, as i got this for the story mode. For multiplayer, i do recommend the battlefront games.
