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.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order initially delivers well-paced combat and unique environments, but unravels into a tedious and repetitive slog.

Great, Dark Souls lite in a Star Wars universe. Recommended if you can score it for cheap (ie through EA Play) and essential for SW fans left wanting from recent lacklustre offerings of the franchise.
9 / 10.0
There have been many Star Wars games over the last three decades. While some have been fan favorites, there has probably been a Star Wars game in every single genre imaginable. Even with the successful games, there has been one thing lacking from every game that hasn't been done correctly until now: Jedi battles and light saber gameplay. Some of the other Star Wars games may
