Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
A galaxy-spanning adventure awaits in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order™, a new third-person action-adventure title from Respawn Entertainment. This narratively driven, single-player game puts you in the role of a Jedi Padawan who narrowly escaped the purge of Order 66 following the events of Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith. On a quest to rebuild the Jedi Order, you must pick up the pieces of your shattered past to complete your training, develop new powerful Force abilities and master the art of the iconic lightsaber - all while staying one step ahead of the Empire and its deadly Inquisitors. While mastering your abilities, players will engage in cinematically charged lightsaber and Force combat designed to deliver the kind of intense Star Wars lightsaber battles as seen in the films. Players will need to approach enemies strategically, sizing up strengths and weaknesses while cleverly utilizing your Jedi training to overcome your opponents and solve the mysteries that lay in your path. Star Wars fans will recognize iconic locations, weapons, gear and enemies while also meeting a roster of fresh characters, locations, creatures, droids and adversaries new to Star Wars. As part of this authentic Star Wars story, fans will delve into a galaxy recently seized by the Empire. As a Jedi hero-turned-fugitive, players will need to fight for survival while exploring the mysteries of a long-extinct civilization all in an effort to rebuild the remnants of the Jedi Order as the Empire seeks to erase the Jedi completely.

So fucking broken it’s insane this was even released (I couldn’t finish the game because one of the puzzles actually broke and I couldn’t progress).
Finally, a single-player Star Wars game that is actually good.
Wow, this really is a Star War
They made lightsaber combat feel good in the same way the axe combat feels good in 2018's God of War. Fits really snugly into the canon Star Wars story too.
The best SW game since the Disney/EA era. Just glad it didn't have microtransactions. Story is engaging and gameplay is the best lightsaber combat since the first Force Unleashed. Not the best Jedi game, but excited for the future from Respawn.
Me: I really miss mid tier licensed games from the 90s and 00s.
Me playing this: Hmmmm, perhaps Not...
This is the jankiest feeling new game I've played in a pretty long time. There's definite potential to be had but the game spends so much time taking inspiration from elsewhere while not sticking the landing with anything. I was able to deal with it a bit more early in but as time went by mixture of the less than stellar combat, level/map design from hell, the backtracking, and rancid platforming/slide sections took a toll. I just wanted it to be done.
There's a solid base here and I'll be keeping tabs on a sequel. It could be something special.
