Update: Game finished. Performs like shit on a base PS4 but the story is so good and the ending is imo, very satisfying. I can't wait to see the next one.
The game still performs like crap on a base PS4 but once you get used to its traversal mechanics pretty well, this game is just plain good. I'll admit, I really wasn't expecting this game to be even close to as good as it is. The story is so much better than I expected and you're always (At least I was) guessing what's going to happen next. Skills are dope and once you reach a certain point that I won't spoil, finally ecstasy.
Okay so, this is a game of high highs and very low lows.
The combat is FUN, I mean, I'm only like 5 hours in and I already have a dual bladed light saber? YES PLEASE THANK YOU.
The characters seem pretty likable and dope so far.
Music is Star Wars'y and I dig it.
I dig the worlds so far
Now on to the negatives.
Holy shit this runs badly on a base PS4.
Cutscenes are a total mess, causing lag and even completely stopping the game for them to load. (This led to one event in particular bugging out and ruining the moment.)]
Back tracking is a goddamn disaster and needs to be revamped.
The "Souls like" bonfire BS sucks as does the incredibly low stim count at start considering they don't heal for shit.
Overall, I like this game enough to give it a pass but it's bogged down by some humongous issues that keep it from being a great game.
