Hi guys! Today I will talk about Dark Souls 3 and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I will do a comparison between them and I will let you be the judge of which game is better. First I will talk about the storyline of those 2 games, then I will talk about the difference or similarities in their gameplay, and lastly, I will compare the visuals and tell you my final thoughts. Now let’s begin.

Both games have interesting storylines though they have different approaches when it comes to telling them.
Jedi Fallen Order has a more direct approach with a lot of cutscenes, while in Dark Souls 3 you have to discover what is going on through reading item descriptions or talking with NPCs multiple times and watching the environment.
It all comes down to what you prefer, saying one is better than the other is subjective. All I can tell you is that both are good in their own way.
The main difference is that Jedi Fallen Order focuses on the action combat while Dark Souls 3 has a clear focus on the RPG elements.
In Jedi Fallen Order you can only use two weapons for the duration of the game, a lightsaber, and a dual-blade lightsaber. That isn’t a bad thing but there are people who prefer to have more variety when it comes to the weapons they can use in a game.
Dark Souls 3 has that variety since there are a lot of different kinds of weapons and each of them feels unique and different from the rest.
The benefit of having fewer weapons available is that the developers can balance the game better and can make the combat more focused on the kinds of weapons that you are using.
As for the RPG elements, in Dark Souls 3 we have the traditional RPG with different attributes, and you put points on them, while in Jedi Fallen Order we have skills trees that allow you to unlock different force abilities, increase the power of those abilities and increase your damage and a few other things similar to what I mentioned.
I don’t believe you can objectively say one is better than the other so I will leave it for you to decide.
Now both games have variety when it comes to enemies and bosses too, but I have to say I prefer Dark Souls 3 bosses.
Dark Souls 3 has more unique bosses and they are more interesting to fight. If you want to fight unique and interesting bosses then Dark Souls 3 is the best choice.
Jedi Fallen Order wins when it comes to the normal enemies you will meet when you traverse the areas. They are more challenging and more interesting to fight against.
Lastly, let’s talk about the difficulty and replayability. For me, both games are around the same level when it comes to difficulty. I didn’t feel that one was particularly harder than the other.
When it comes to replayability through Dark Souls 3 wins by far since it has a lot of different classes weapons and builds that you can try.
One thing that Dark Souls 3 has that Jedi Fallen Order doesn’t have is the multiplayer mode. Though I have to say that I didn’t particularly like it since the connection is peer to peer and there is a lot of lag.
Maybe if you are lucky and you are close with the person that you are fighting it will be fun but for me it was frustrating. I gave up on it because playing with lag is not fun for me.
When it comes to visual there isn’t any competition. There is a big difference in the visuals of both games. Jedi Fallen Order looks a lot better and it is a lot more realistic.
As for the customization options, Jedi Fallen Order wins here too. In Jedi Fallen Order you can unlock different outfit colors 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.
In Dark Souls 3 you can change your armor to look different but there is no item transmogrification system(meaning that you aren’t able to change the appearance of any armor or weapon you have to the appearance of another weapon or armor you have gotten in the game and keep the item’s stats) which is something that I always want in an RPG.
I will now summarize what you should keep from this article.
Both games have great stories though they have a different way of telling those stories. Jedi Fallen Order has a traditional approach with a lot of cinematics while in Dark Souls 3 you have to discover what is going on through exploring the world, reading item descriptions, and talking to NPCs.
In the gameplay department, you should pick Dark Souls 3 if you want more RPG elements, replayability, and more interesting bosses, and you should pick Jedi Fallen Order if you want more optimized combat since the combat is optimized for your weapon and more interesting fights with normal enemies in the different areas.
Lastly Jedi Fallen order offers better visuals and more customization.
Whatever game you choose to buy, I recommend waiting for sale since I don’t believe they are worth the full price.
