    May the 4th be with you, as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gets some free new content to celebrate the date. Available now are a host of new additions to the game, including bugfixes, accessibility improvements, and additional game modes and challenges. New Journey+ has been added, allowing you to play the game over from the start, while carrying your cosmetic items and lightsaber colors over. Doing so also unlocks meditation training game modes, which are challenges that take place in a battle grid against bosses and enemy waves. A few gameplay mechanics have been tweaked as well, allowing players to skip button-mashing quick time events and offering text-scaling options.

    Now we need a DLC that actually makes the game enjoyable


    The soundtrack is really good though.

    I played almost exclusively on the hardest difficulty, it played like a stripped-down Dark Souls with less real consequences for dying. The combat is honestly probably one of the best elements, but it's pretty stagnant. I like the graphical design of some levels like Kashyyk but the caves in Zeffo were absolutely horrible. Puzzles were practically nonexistent, the story was palpable at best. The sound design of the lightsabers is really good, but there's like probably 10 different sound effects for footsteps and it's really jarring hearing the same footsteps on everything. It incorporates elements from lots of games but doesn't really do anything better than those games, and once you get past the game's presentation (graphically it's pretty impressive), there's not really much interesting or unique there.

    So the game wasn't too hard for me, it's easier than any Fromsoft game I've ever played. It's just a very middle of the road somewhat competent product designed to appeal to the largest demographic possible and not much else. It's perfectly fine for an hour or two, but it lacks any real substance (kinda like everything else Disney and EA makes). I found it quite boring.

    Bought it for that nice 35€ yesterday, i still had 10€ on my steam wallet so that was pretty much a nobrain !

    Will finally get to really play it !

    I tried it cracked, got bugs on that planet right after the elevetor, game was glitchy AF, polygons going everywhere and getting stretched then crashed, no one actually botherred to update the crack so I didnt bother and decided to wait till I buy it ! :)

    Sadly this doesn't give me enough reason to revisit when I already beaten it on the hardest difficulty and platinumed it.
