This one is for my homies, who are Star Wars fanatics. Electronic Arts brings you this bombshell of a game that will awaken the inner Jedi or Sith lord inside you. Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was released in November this year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is releasing on perfect time, just a month before the much-awaited release of Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker. This game will boost interest in the fans and will probably increase revenue for the film when it releases.
The events of the game begin shortly after the Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.
You will control Cal Kestis, a young Jedi Padawan or apprentice, in his attempts to evade the Empire. You will guide him through the journey through various iconic and new worlds from the Star Wars universe. The game looks terrific at first glance. But is this worth buying? That’s what we’re going to find out. Let’s begin.
The game is set in the Star Wars universe 5 years after the events of the third episode. Fallen Order is a story of a padawan named Cal Kestis and his accomplices as they try to survive against the Empire, who are always on the lookout to kill them. Cal is accompanied by numerous well-respected rebel figures, including former master Cere Junda, clone wars veteran Saw Gerrera, Jedi master Eno Cordova, and a droid named BD-1, among many others.
The other aspect is that you are being chased by an inquisitor, called the Second Sister. The second sister is trained by Darth Vader and is hell-bent on finding you and killing you. The objective of the game is to evade your enemies and finally get the better of them. The story is on the better side, and you will enjoy it if you’re a fan of the Star Wars Saga. There are several characters that you will like once you get the hang of it. Cere Junda, the one who trains Cal, is undoubtedly one of the best characters in the game. She even outshines the importance of Cal in a few instances.
This is the best part of this game. The story is excellent, might not be the best, but still, it is decent for a video-game. However, the gameplay is on another level. You will love every minute of the time you spend playing this game. More so, if you are already a fan of the star wars universe. Although there have been complaints about stuttering and lag, especially on HD graphics settings. If you have an outdated PC, you might need to lower your graphics settings.
There are numerous worlds for you to explore and wander about. They are brimming ancient artifacts that are valuable when it comes to gaining new abilities. You’ll be faced with many puzzles to unlock these relics, which are quite challenging and fun. Fallen Order will give you the feel of a futuristic amalgamation of Tomb Raider and Indiana Jones on a few occasions.
You can use the Force, and your strength will get better as you progress. 3 primary kinds of Force abilities are available, namely, Push, Pull, and Slow. You’ll have to use the Force to make massive leaps over pits and obstacles, which is quite enjoyable.
Combat is also a strong suit of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The lightsaber, or “an elegant weapon for a civilised age,” according to Obi-Wan, will be your only weapon throughout the game. Don’t be sad if you were looking forward to blasting everyone. The experience of using the lightsaber is truly mind-blowing. Fighting looks and feels very much authentic, and the animations are brilliant too. You’ll need to find a balance between carefully timed strikes, parries, and dodges to get the better of your enemy. Also, there is a wide variety of foes that will cross your path. From regular stormtroopers to otherworldly beasts, and badass bosses. There are lightsaber parts scattered that you need to collect. These parts can be used to customise your lightsaber.
Apart from some stuttering issues in some low spec systems, the game runs very well. Fallen Order comprises of a fantastic cast that portrays an incredible story. The characters are great, and the background score is up to the mark. All this combined with world-class gameplay and satisfying fight sequences make this game a complete package. Although, if you’re not familiar with the Star Wars franchise, then I guess you should first watch the movies and then buy this game. For those already acquainted with the star wars universe, get out there and get yourself a copy of this game.
