Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Empire combines puzzle-solving, exploration, and combat to deliver one of the most ambitious single-player Star Wars games ever.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is an absolute masterpiece. Well paced, written, and executed, the game is Respawn's best thus far.
There is nothing new or radical here. But as comforting popcorn gaming to indulge in while you wait for your trip to the pictures? Job done.
This is the Star Wars game we've all been waiting for. It takes the best elements of Tomb Raider, Metroidvanias, and a dash of souls-likes to create a memorable and fun experience with amazing combat that makes you feel like a true Jedi.
With its satisfyingly challenging lightsaber combat and on-brand recreation of the Star Wars galaxy, this is the game fans have been waiting for
Jedi Fallen Order is one of the best games in the Star Wars franchise and one of the best games of 2019.
There's some significant problems, for sure – especially in level design and signposting – but we're confident that the developers could easily evolve beyond these hiccups in the future. The Star Wars gaming universe is in pretty safe hands with Respawn – provided EA keep giving the studio enough opportunities.
It means Fallen Order feels functional rather than fantastic. It's a good but not great game that never really bothers even trying to be original, instead coasting by on the strength of its source material. But it treats that source material with such open love and affection that Star Wars fans will struggle not to get carried along on the ride, though those who aren't strong with the Force can probably get away with steering clear.
Without being extraordinary, Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order is a captivating game that one would be wrong to miss.
