Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order review
by The Man With DOOMS Who Sold the World

What Fallen Order fails to capture with its polish and overarching gameplay it provides in an engrossing story and enjoyable combat. At about midway through this game, I felt like a Jedi and that's why I was playing to begin with. What I didn't expect was a character I cared about and a story that actually made me want to continue just as much as unlocking the next force power. The game is extremely linear but it makes up for that with a dynamic mix of enemies and ways to attack them.

I think it could have done with more time in the oven as there are a good amount of glitches and bugs that took place through my playthrough but they never prevented me from enjoying myself. I cannot wait to see what Respawn does with this series going forward.

Star Wars games are good again!
minha única critica é com relação ao combate que não esta tão polido, tipo a defesa demora pra subir e o parry falha as vezes, como eu joguei muito sekiro foi o que mais senti, ja que ele compartilha diversas mecanicas com jogos soulslike, fora isso gostei bastante, a historia e personagens são bem maneiros e a trilha sonora é ótima, o combate a pesar das falhas também é bem legal, tu realmente sente a progressão do personagem, que é acompanhada pela historia de forma satisfatória, e eu joguei na dificuldade máxima então achei bem desafiador, logo recomento, o jogo me surpreendeu

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a decent game, but sorely lacking in a few areas.  Unfortunately, it’s very glitchy and buggy.  I had the game crash several times, including during boss fights.   In  addition, the story is lacking.  You never believe in the camaraderie between the characters,  and they just didn’t do much (with the exception of one character towards the end.). The ending was also a huge let down.  

Now that I’ve gone through the bad, the action is great.  It’s very much Uncharted meets Dark Souls.  The game is huge, narrative driven action pieces tied together through close quarters.  The RPG-lite elements were good, always putting new moves, more life or more power within arms reach.  The various planets you explore present a sort of faux-open world, but they are actually quite linear.  They look great, and the exploration is fun.  

Part of what feels like a let down is that so much of the story seems to happen through reading material on the pause menus.  It would have been nice to experience a bit more.  
Devs really feel the "vibe" of Star Wars

«That ending!»
Fallen Order is the first full game I've played on the Stadia platform, and it was fantastic (despite several freezes requiring a browser restart). I enjoyed the progression of the main character Cal from an uncertain acolyte to a full-fledged Jedi capable of decimating all the stormtroopers the empire can muster.
If you like Star Wars, metroidvanias and Souls-games, you’ll like Jedi Fallen Order too.
good game who has reieve love fromm their dev but huge flow on the combat system and boss except the ' animals boss are visualy cool but gameplay side it s suck since we can t cancel animation but boss can have 0 stun from your attack
Gamepass.

Glad I waited to play this. I really enjoyed my single playthrough, managed to 100% without having to replay anything, but I think if I paid full price (or anything >$40) I would have come away slightly disappointed.
I know it's not the most original  game, but it was really fun and didn't get stale throughout

Star Wars Jedi Fallen order is a nice journey into the Star Wars galaxy. It is a bit strange mix of a meticulous souls-like combat and pure action bits that I enjoyed the most. For my taste, the combat system was too dry for a game about a Jedi, but the ending and story is interesting enough to keep you going.
I will probably never play it again it though.

P.S. I have not encountered a bug I couldn't fix that would make my progression impossible, however they are present in the game, so be prepared.
