Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order review! Star Wars, one of the most well-known brands in the science fiction world, has managed to stay on the agenda thanks to the films that have been presented to us since the 80s. Star Wars, which aroused interest for its fans with the upcoming film The Rise of Skywalker, started to sit on the agenda again this year before the film was released. Stating that he will be in front of his followers with a new Star Wars production every year, Disney entrusted the game side to EA Games. EA Games, which upset its fans because of the troubles of Battlefront 2, this time with a different and interesting project to improve its prestige. Let’s face it when we learn that the recently announced Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was developed by the Respawn team, we were all excited. The fact that developers who are already proving themselves with games like Titanfall series and Apex Legends is making Star Wars game increased our expectations. Let’s see if the team that made EA Games earn millions thanks to Apex Legends has been able to handle the Star Wars brand.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Review
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order tells the story of what happened to a young Jedi named Cal. Cal, who has experienced the Order 66 incident and managed to escape from this revolution, spends his life in a junk yard. Cal Kestis, who was a respected engineer before Order 66, but somehow held to life with his friends who became a scrapman after the event, became the target of the Imperial forces because he used Force in a necessary situation in the course of the story. Cal, who then finds himself traveling companions on his journey to rebuild the Jedi council, also strengthens his bond with the Force during the journey.
The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which is not very rich in terms of the main villain, puts Ninth Sister and Second Sister in front of us in the story. The two characters, who appear once at the beginning of the game and then appear in turn, aim to hunt the Jedi who survived the Order 66 incident. Actor Cameron Monaghan, who has performed acclaimed performances in series like Gotham and Shameless, has also demonstrated its quality in the game. Monaghan, who is able to clearly distinguish between good and evil and overcome a conscientious character, is not at all impertinent in the game. The Jedi Fallen Order, which does not have a deep storytelling, wants to prove itself with gameplay mechanics before the story.
Respawn stated that he wanted to put forward the most realistic light sword fighting mechanics ever made and he was able to handle it from certain angles. It’s up to you to improve Cal Kestis’ sword skills in combat mechanics that are similar to Dark Souls, but faster than the Souls series. When you improve your force and fighting abilities by leveling up, your character is on his way to becoming a master Jedi. Respawn team assigned the bumper and trigger keys to Force, allowing us to attack with normal buttons. Our main character, who can perform light and heavy attacks, adds the ability to use Force into his combos and create beautiful scenes.
The power of the light sword over the enemies is the same as in the movies. We can cause heavy damage to anything the sword touches or strikes. With the exception of end-of-the-end monsters, you can cut stormtroopers in close combat like butter. The difficulty of the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is much easier than in the Souls games. You can struggle when there are multiple enemies, but it is not difficult to kill enemies when you get used to the game. Also in a similar way to Souls games, if you die a creature or enemy, you lose the experience points you have on you. If you want to get your experience points back, the person who killed you just needs to do damage to him. But here’s a logic error that goes against the Star Wars universe. In the Star Wars universe, all of the Jedi characters have been brought to life in a way free of human emotions. The Jedi, who can control their anger, do not take revenge. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s Souls games, this mechanics, a little revenge because this logic error may disturb some Star Wars fans.
The map structure of the game is designed in large sections. It’s nice that the planets are completely different in the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, where we can travel between planets. Developers who are not too easy to design, wanted to provide a rich environment to the players. At the beginning of the game, we discovered BD-1 with our companions and they were shown in the story as the places where the Jedi were before. Thanks to the power of reading the moment Cal Kestis has, we can find out what happened before in the places we discovered. This mechanical, which gives a little sense of detective, is beautifully integrated into the story of the game.
The biggest minus of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which is successful in reconnaissance and combat mechanics, is the platform elements. Prince of Persia’ya similar to the structure of the puzzle game with jumping left and right, at least as much as we are among the actions we do. Unfortunately, developers who are not able to design navigation in places where platform elements are available, unfortunately do not promise a very regular gameplay. Platform mechanics, which are far from quality due to camera angles and character animations, will annoy you from time to time.
If you’re a player close to the Mass Effect series, you’ll compare the spacecraft The Mantis to Normandy. You can personalize the character’s appearance or, more importantly, the lightsaber within the ship, or interact with other characters. What we can do on the ship that we enter only between the sections is exceptionally limited.
The graphical quality of the game is as expected. The graphics, which are of AAA gaming quality, are particularly rich in lighting. I must say that the parts where you discover the caves with your light sword are impressive. However, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which I experienced on PlayStation 4 platform, also showed FPS decreases from time to time. The Pro version is said to have no problems, while the flat version of the consoles may have a little technical problems. However, as these technical problems also arise in combat, your gaming pleasure may be undermined from time to time.
When we come to an end, if you’re a big Star Wars fan, you’ll be absolutely satisfied with the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The quality of the combat mechanics and the fact that it closely deals with the Order 66 incident made the game interesting. I can easily say that the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is definitely one of the surprise games of this year, except for a few minor bumps.
