⌚ Time to finish - 19h story (27h total with 100% trophy)
🏆Trophy completion - 100% - Really enjoyed the trophy list. This is the first collection game that i did not mind collection trophy. Most of the time they are so tedious I do not do them. I used a youtube video side by side and just play along collecting with the youtube creator. It was easy and it made me appreciate the level design, which during regular play is very hard to navigate.
🤬Difficulty - medium - It starts off hard, as you dont have abilities and death will reset you to your previous rest point like a souls game. You also loose your experience which you have to hit (kill optional) the monster that killed you to get it back.
🌄Graphics – Modern, nice to look at.
🌦 Atmosphere/Music – Great sound track feels like you are in star wars!
📚 Main Story / Characters – The story is nothing out of the ordinary. Typical heroes journey story but the stand out is that damn cute robot, BD-1. I found his companions and the main character annoying. He doesn't grow much in the game until much later on. That is also when the game gets more interesting. The game overall starts strong (4/5), for a few chapters looses the punch (3/5), picks up again towards last 40% (4.5/5). Thankfully.
🤺 Combat – Definitely has challenge. You cannot blindly swing your saber. You need to be deliberate about what you are doing. I appreciated that.
🧭 Side Activities / Exploration – Very very easy to get lost. The map is so hard to read! I think universally people hate the map.
🚗 Movement/Physics – Fine. He runs weird, his roll leaves him extremely vulnerable so use it sparingly. There are SOME EXTREMELY frustrating rope grabs in this game. There was one rope i died 10 times on and there is no reason for this in an action adventure game. It should just be forgiving and let you grab.
📣 Voice acting – Excellent.
🥇 Best thing about the game - I enjoyed the action adventure and combat especially toward the last few chapters. I hate collection trophies but this game was unique in that i did not mind it.
👎 Worst thing about the game - Some parcour is finnicky. VERY easy to get lost and gets frustrating.
💡Final Thoughts:

Really enjoyed the game. Get through the boring middle part. If you get lost look it up, there is no need to bang your head going in circles. it takes the fun away. Will recommend anyone play this game. I think its honestly the best intro to souls like game.

The combat is amazing, best thing about this game. Story was fun, but i kinda hit the snooze at some parts.

Lol I've gotta stop tricking myself into thinking I'll like these triple A action games. It was very fine, fun enough on a base mechanical level, but missing something. Not any one thing in particular, mind you, but more of a reason for being.

There's a lot of little places I think it misses the mark though. The mechanical progression feels a bit weak to me, and while the level design is pretty good, the placement of shortcuts feels kinda random. Like, it's got this Uncharted Dark Souls thing going on, where you're platforming and climbing and criss crossing through these little intricate levels, but when you have to go back out I just always felt deflated.

The bigger issues I have are related to the story though. This feels like a game that should've had a real drive to it, or some kind of moral dilemma (star wars is rich with those as a setting) but instead there's just a vague quest propped up by Rogue One references for the first 3/4 of the game.

There's a bit of a turnaround near the end, where it seems like it's going to try to make some kind of statement on the Jedi, and whether their order is worth rebuilding, but it shirks from taking the question seriously. It assumes the good guys are the good guys, and doesn't really develop them further than that. There's no real drama to it as a result, despite trying to come across as a real movie-type-triple a game.

It's not a bad game, but it's nothing I'd return to, whether for my star wars or soulslite fixes.

Sinceramente, eu devorei esse jogo nesses dias, e foi delicioso demais. Na verdade, por causa de 1 ou 2 comentários eu sempre tive uma imagem que esse jogo era super bugado, que era muito estressante passar de certas partes por causa deles, não sei se foi por causa que eu joguei no Xcloud, que não aconteceu muitos bugs(não sei se isso faz sentido, desculpa), porque acho que isso foi a única diferença que eu tive em jogar do que as pessoas que jogaram no console ou jogando não sendo por Nuvem, na experiência toda, aconteceram só bugs visuais, que tirava mais boas risadas do que me fazerem gostar menos do jogo. Fico muito feliz de ter dado uma chance, acho que posso não ter desgostado dele por muitos motivos, pode ser por eu gostar muito de Star Wars, mesmo tendo visto os filmes há um bom tempo, ou por achar o sabre de luz uma arma muito interessante, entre outros motivos que me deram vontade para terminar ele, ou por ele ser um jogo bom mesmo, não sei. Ele é perfeito? Não, mas não consigo não amar ele, a jogabilidade é extremamente viciante, tanto por atacar ou rebater os disparos, joguei numa dificuldade não muito difícil, então a maioria das lutas era um pouco fácil, mas nada que me incomodou, entretanto, a luta final é incrível, muito frenética etc, eu me senti realmente num filme de Star Wars. Me identifiquei de certa forma com o Cal, sobre não saber o seu lugar, e gostei da mensagem que o jogo passa, sobre não deixar o mal te devorar mesmo nos tempos mais sombrios, e que a jornada continua pra aqueles que continuam lutando. Divaguei legal? Divaguei, não sei se sou eu que gosto muito fácil os jogos, ou passo muito a "mão na cabeça" pra alguns defeitos, mas acho que gosto assim. Recomendo? É difícil dizer, não sei se pode acontecer bugs piores do que aconteceram comigo, até impossibilitando a continuar jogando, se você conseguir jogar pelo Game Pass, ou pelo Xcloud(pesquisei no aplicativo pra ver se tem no Game Pass normal e não só no Xcloud, e acho que tem sim, mas ainda assim, da uma pesquisada antes, sou bem distraído e ter perdido algo), ou conseguir pegar numa promoção por um preço bom, só vai, se não, acho que é melhor esperar uma melhor oportunidade. Acho que é isso, ainda penso se fui eu que tive muita sorte com ele, ou só é um jogo bom com alguns defeitos.
