Hi guys! Today I will talk about Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then about the gameplay, afterward, I will talk about the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

The story of the game takes place 5 years after Anakin becomes Darth Vader. The game follows the story of Cal Kestis who is a Padawan that survived Order 66. I won’t tell you more about the story since I don’t want to spoil it, but what I can say is that the story is very interesting and the characters feel unique, the actors did a great job portraying these characters. I believe you will enjoy the story of this game.
It’s been years since the last single-player Star Wars game. I have to say I was very excited when they announced this and this game didn’t disappoint. The combat is fast, the difficulty is enough to make the game challenging and there are a lot of different types of enemies that you will face.
As you progress through the game you unlock new force abilities and you can improve their efficiency through the skill tree. The skill tree has 3 main branches. One is for the force powers, another is for lightsaber combat abilities, and the last is for survival abilities.
In the game, there is only one way to heal and that is through stim canisters. You start with 2 and there are 8 more that you can find in the different locations that you will visit for a total of 10. These “healing potions” are the only way for you to restore HP and they are not easy to find. You might have to look a video on YouTube to find all of them if you don’t like exploring that is. I finished the game in the hardest difficulty and I had 7 of them. Of course, you can beat the game with less, it all depends on you and if you want to make the game more challenging for yourself.
Now the only other way to restore HP is to find resting points in the areas you visit and rest there. When you rest in a resting point you make a checkpoint and when you die you return to that resting point. Also when you rest all your stims are restored.
The last thing I want to talk about is performance. The game stutters a little when you enter new areas to load the map and also sometimes in combat. That isn’t a hardware issue. I have GTX 1070 and i7-7700 with 16 GB Ram, and I locked frames to 60 fps max and even lowered some of the visuals to high instead of epic and it still stutters sometimes. I heard the same thing happens to others with even better graphics cards, for example, GTX 2080. This is a game optimization issue and it will probably be fixed in future patches. These stutters weren’t enough to impact the experience of the game. They were a minor annoyance.
The visuals, the game looks visually stunning, with breathtaking locations. It has some of the best graphics I have seen in a while. Those of you that want games to look as good as possible and won’t settle for low graphics games, won’t be disappointed by this one.
Now as for the customization, you have a lot of options. You can unlock different outfit colors in the game by finding them in boxes in the game, and you can also customize every part of your lightsaber. The customization in this game is very good but to be honest none of the outfit colors was good enough for me so I had to download a mod that looked exactly how I wanted to look like before I had even seen the color options, one of the perks of playing on PC.
To summarize my review this game is good, really good. Those performance problems I mentioned are minor and they will probably be patched soon, and even if they don’t get patched it is still a great game that is worth buying. If you aren’t sure then wait for the first sale to get it at a lower price.
As I said before the combat is amazing, the visuals are top-notch and the storyline is equally as good. Even though it’s EA they finally released a good game without microtransactions. If you are a Star Wars fan or if you want a solid single-player experience this game is for you.
General Rating: 9.3
