    Had a instance in Zeffo where I had to fight 2 bounty hunters I died and then when I went back they werenít there and my xp was just a point in the floor.
    Seemed like a cool fight but an optional/limited time thing? Anyone else had this or can explain why it wasnít there the second time.
    I had this, it sucks.

    This is feeling a solid 7/10 so far and I havenít got to all the backtracking so could get worse. The level design isnít the most exciting and the lightsabering is no better than Jedi Knight had.

    I love it but I havenít played many Star Wars games. Levels feel pretty massive and I like the pace so far but only in Zeffo

    @Graxlar_v3 You will get more encounters like this as you progress. They seem to occur in random places or where mini boss encounters occurred previously.]/spoiler].

    I canít be doing that as mines digital, it is rather decent to play tbh. Combat can be a bit woolly when thereís multiple opponents, and the force powers can get a bit fiddly but one on one itís really rather visceral and kinetic. Itís general controls are nice and varied but itís a little imprecise at times and can let you down at times.
    Load timeís are a bit daft when faced with multiple restarts.

    Also the second sister is just immense so far, literally just reached dathomir, Iíd happily play her backstory as dlc etc.

    I know that they said that there wouldnít be DLC but I would snap it up in a heartbeat. Which is saying something for a 7/10 game.

    I got the plat the other day for this.

    My general feeling is that there is a fun game in there, but the combat was pretty shallow and not a touch on Sekiro which it felt like it was trying to imitate. Control had better 'force powers' and the navigation was pretty basic compared to anything like a persia game.

    A fun mash-up of ideas but ultimately limited in all of them.
    A solid 7.

    So I've picked this up again now I've dropped Code Vein. More or less agree with a lot of the comments above, but...

    Is it just me, or is... like... 75% of the loot in this cosmetic lightsaber parts? As in, cosmetics for a tiny piece of equipment you barely look at.

    This game really needs a photo mode. This borderline looks like concept art.

    I honestly thought on my X it was visually a mixed bag, I don't think I was ever impressed like I was with some of the vistas in something like Uncharted 4. I do hope there's a sequel and they get a chance to tidy some things up.

    On PC I think it's the best looking game I've ever played. Only thing that seems a bit off is character faces apparently not using subsurface scattering and looking a little flat as a result.

    I am really enjoying this, despite thinking the combat is a bit too woolly and imprecise for all the Soulslike stuff they've lifted and that the map is a bit useless. I'm loving the setting/worlds and scale of the tomb areas.

    So those Wookies don't look like they're made out of Cheese String on the PC?

    Oh, right, yeah, the Wookiies. I'd forgotten about them, THANKS JAMBO.

    Yeah, they look awful even with everything maxed.

    The Wookies in this are lifted right from the Legends of Eurogamer thread:

    Decks should sue for royalties.

    Sometimes it's like nobody else on this site has memorised the Dorling Kindersley Star Wars Visual Dictionary.

    I was really enjoying this, but this metal ball planet can fuck right off.

    Lol, I finished it the other day, did all the collectibles etc too as it seemed to really tap into my ocd and I didnít have anything else I wanted to play. It was well worth the purchase even though it wasnít polished to the extent we expected, the ending was decent if cribbed a bit from a certain recent film. Thought the second sister was decent shame she didnít make it to the end
    Iíd certainly play another although I donít know where they would take it.

    I think it's probably my GOTY, to be honest. Even despite the issues I mentioned upthread. The settings/world, scale and art/design of some of the environments and the story and characters all just did it for me, while everything else was good enough.

    For me, it's similar to God of War, in that it's just a big ol' grab bag of 'what's big in gaming 20xx'. Doesn't do anything particularly new, while doing everything well enough, but the setting elevated it for me - I've never been able to get into the God of War series, which meant the new one didn't do as much for me as it would have for series fans, but I love Star Wars, so Fallen Order managed to have a bit more to offer me.

    This is exactly the kind of Star Wars game I wanted, which has been reinforced while playing Battlefront II's campaign (gotta make the most of my Origin Premier month sub!). This one is great fan service, but not a particularly good game.
