Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Reviews Summary

Summary: Critics adore Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order for its deep combat experience that plays like a somewhat more forgiving Dark Souls. Add to that interesting traversal mechanics and lots of secrets to find and Respawn has likely birthed a new beloved series.

Captures the Franchise's Spirit

Critics have consistently called this one of the best Star Wars games ever.

Thoughtful Combat

Borrowing from Dark Souls was the right idea.

Frustrating Navigation

A lack of proper fast travel points will leave some players lost and annoyed.
