Hi guys! Today I will talk about Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin and 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.

When it comes to the storyline, Jedi Fallen Order is the best choice by far. It offers an amazing story with interesting characters and makes you care about them.
Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin has a plot-driven story like all the other Dark Souls games and as I said I am not a fan of plot-driven stories since very rarely they manage to keep my attention. You might prefer this kind of storytelling and if you do then that’s great.
So for me, if you want an amazing story I would 100% recommend Jedi Fallen Order but if you prefer plot-driven stories then Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin is also a very good choice.
The combat style of these two games is quite different. Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin has the combat you would expect from Dark Souls game, meaning you attack, you dodge and you throw a parry here and there. Jedi Fallen Order on the other hand has a combat system like the one you find in Sekiro, meaning that parrying is encouraged and it’s the most optimal way to play the game.
Of course, there are some additional things these games have when it comes to combat. One of those things is the dual-wielding system you can find in Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin which in my opinion is the best dual-wielding system in the Dark Souls franchise.
Jedi Fallen Order on the other hand has force powers that you can use which for me are the highlight of the game.
Another difference between these two games is the number of weapons you can use. Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin offers a lot of different weapons for you to choose from, on the other hand, Jedi Fallen Order only offers one, which is the lightsaber. The lightsaber can be transformed into a double-bladed lightsaber but that is as far as it goes.
Having more weapon options doesn’t make a game better. It all comes down to you the player and what do you prefer.
As for the enemies that you will face, both games offer a variety of enemies but when it comes to bosses Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin easily(at least for me).
Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin offers more bosses, and they are more interesting to fight against than the bosses of Jedi Fallen Order.
The difficulty is another thing to consider. For me Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin is a little more challenging than Jedi Fallen Order. Also Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin has more replayability since it has a lot of different classes and builds you can try, and I can’t say this for Jedi Fallen Order.
Lastly Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin offers co-op and PVP modes so if you care about playing the game with or against other people then this is an important thing for you to consider.
Visually these games are night and day. There isn’t even a comparison to make when it comes to graphics. Jedi Fallen Order is just on a different league and that’s understandable since it came 3 years after Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin. Also, Dark Souls games were never really known for having amazing graphics.
The environment and locations you visit in Jedi Fallen Order are breathtaking. I don’t think I have played a game that better looking than Jedi Fallen Order.
As for the customization, I’d say Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin has a small edge because it has a character creation system but Jedi Fallen Order also offers customization on your lightsaber, clothes, spaceship, and more.
Let me summarize what you should keep from this article.
First when it comes to story, I recommend Jedi Fallen Order unless you prefer plot-driven stories.
Gameplay-wise, both games are around the same level when it comes to combat(for different reasons), but Dark Souls 2 offers more replayability, better bosses, multiplayer modes, and is more challenging.
When it comes to visuals Jedi Fallen Order is on a different league and there is no choice here.
Whichever game you choose I recommend waiting for sale.
