Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is only a few days away from release and its first review from an early player has surfaced. Although the player in the discussion is no reviewer, he was diligent enough to share some a big chunk of information regarding its gameplay and overall looks. If the reality comes anywhere close to what the first impressions claim, then we might be looking at one of the best games in 2019.
It’s always a nice day to find out that a long-awaited game is actually what it claims to be. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the first modern single-player title with a narrative focus to hit the market, satisfying the best of two niches.
According to Fat_Log’s post on Reddit, the game is 55GB in total and its looks are great even on the older consoles. He confirms the souls-like gameplay we knew, which consists of hard blocks and parries for the strongest enemies. Gameplay shines according to the early review, it isn’t even its strongest feature though.
The universe has a lot to share with classic Metroidvania titles, having secret passages and hidden areas that you can access by wall-running and unlocking new traits. The reviewer says that moving around feels a lot like Assassin’s Creed. With the addition of lightsabers and Force powers, it seems only natural for gameplay to be extremely deep.
That is also implied by the fact that there are three skill trees at least with new attacks and abilities for you to use. This will be of help when it comes to unlocking new areas and hidden passages.
The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order analysis also sheds some light on customization. As it seems, lightsabers are fully customizable with parts you loot after battle. In addition, there are gear sets that empower your character and skins that change your appearance, your companion’s as well as your ship looks.
Last but not least, the review touches the cutscene subject. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order cinematics come close to those we’ve seen in God of War, having a flow between them and the following gameplay. This will become the next standard in triple-A single-player titles that respect themselves.
Whether this early look is on-point or not, remains to be seen when the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order review embargo lifts. The game releases on November 15th for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
