About this item
- CINEMATIC, IMMERSIVE COMBAT: Jedi: Fallen Order delivers the fantasy of becoming a Jedi through its innovative lightsaber combat system - striking, parrying, dodging - partnered with a suite of powerful Force abilities you’ll need to leverage to overcome obstacles that stand in your way. This combat system is intuitive to pick up, but takes training and practice to fully master its nuances as you gain new powers and abilities along your adventure
- A NEW JEDI STORY BEGINS: As a former Padawan on the run from the Empire, you must complete your training before Imperial Inquisitors discover your plan to revive the Jedi Order. Aided by a former Jedi Knight, a cantankerous pilot, and a fearless droid, you must escape the evil machinations of the Empire in a story-driven adventure. Explore and overcome a wide range of challenges focused on combat, exploration, and puzzle-solving
- THE GALAXY AWAITS: Ancient forests, windswept rock faces, and haunted jungles are all unique biomes you’ll explore in Jedi: Fallen Order, with the freedom to decide when and where you go next. As you unlock new powers and abilities, opportunities open up to re-traverse maps in new ways; leveraging the Force to augment the way you explore. Move quickly, however, as the Empire is actively hunting your every step in their effort to exterminate all remnants of the Jedi Order

I excitedly picked it up for the PS5 recently, thinking I'd snagged a bargain for just £20 - and even if it didn't quite live up to the reviews, it was only £20... Right?
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen order isn't just a bad Star Wars game, it's a bad game full stop. I have given up a few hours in, after reading online that it really doesn't get much better.
Visually and audibly, the game is decent. For the most part it looks and sounds like Star Wars and is perfectly acceptable.
The story started quite strongly but very quickly became tiring, incoherent and uninteresting.
The gameplay is the biggest issue, however.
Lightsaber combat is extremely basic and boring, with the weapon feeling like a baseball bat - unable to one-hit kill Stormtroopers, with no human dismemberment whatsoever. It doesn't feel like a powerful weapon and it isn't fun to use.
Using the Force is also basic and boring. The game puts not effort into letting you use the Force. You have at your disposal: Force Slow, Force Push, Force Pull, Force Jump. That's it.
2003's Jedi Academy, in addition to the above 4 powers, also offered: Force Absorb, Force Heal, Force Protect, Jedi Mind Trick, Force Grip, Force Drain, Force Lightning and Force Rage.
Notice how all of the fun, exciting and destructive powers are all omitted from Fallen Order?
The game does order a skill tree, to improve your skills and health etc, however, because the game is so bland and featureless, working your way through the skill tree doesn't really change your character much at all. Slightly more health, slightly more damage, slightly more stamina etc. The odd combo here and there but that is about it.
The controls are poor for the most part. I never felt in full control of my character. The game is essentially Tomb Raider/Uncharted with a Star Wars paint job, both handles worse than both of those franchises.
The platforming is dull and not suited to a Star Wars game. The backtracking is tedious and the whole game feels like no effort has been put into making it.
I enjoy collectables in games, picking up an item and reading about its place in the game's world, reading about the lore and history etc. Tomb Raider and Uncharted do this very well.
One of the first 'collectables' or thing's to 'explore' in Fallen Order was some shipping crates. The piece of text accompanying it explained that these shipping crates were used by that planet to ship goods. I'm not joking. Someone was paid actual money to design this and write this text. EA are a joke, really.
As a side note, the world is so un-interactable. The world feels dead, you can't destroy furniture and ornaments with your lightsaber, everything is just for show. Try and interact with the world and you can't. The game want's you to play a very specific way and not step out of the scripted path for a second, you might as well watch a let's play. You'll get the same enjoyment.
Despite only costing £20, I still regret buying Fallen Order. Even if it was available for free on PS Plus one month, I still wouldn't recommend wasting your bandwidth downloading it.
It is a great example of everything wrong with modern big studio releases.
Play wise the game character Jedi skills and associated controls are slowly learnt as you progress through the game which is okay and kind of works for the return to planets for further progress once additional skills have been unlocked.
To me the game lost review rating on a number of points -
1. The movement control is extremely delicate especially when lining up for a movement such as a jump or zip line and I think is done much better and accurate on other games such as Tomb Raider and Last of Us.
2. There do not seem to be enough save (meditation) points in the game so when respawning or returning to the game after having turned it off leads to having to play through too much mundane parts to get back to the part where it was left.
3. To me graphically the game seemed to be far from the standard expected for a next generation PS5 game, I dont know how it compares to the PS4 version but I would be very surprised if there is a big difference.
4. The game view and rotation seemed to rotate and get lost easily, this is especially annoying during fight parts where the view ends up randomly lost in a wall or something similar.
In summary, I found that its not too bad a game if bought cheap but do not expect the game depth or length or a game anywhere near as polished as other games such as The Last Of Us.
The load times are unacceptable for a PS5 game and seem to vary wildly for no reason.
