As a new age of Star Wars movies, books, and video games enters into the pop-culture landscape, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order developed by Respawn Entertainment, has been at the center of the video game discussion since its release on November 15th, 2019. The video game offers Star Wars fans a single player story mode campaign and is the only game that is set between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode -IV A New Hope. The story mode is one that Star Wars fans haven’t seen before. The game offers total control of a Jedi with force capabilities with a campaign that will make you want to play more. This action adventure is available for Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
In Jedi: Fallen Order, you play as a young Jedi Padawan named Cal Kestis as he is being hunted through the galaxy by the Galactic Republic. Throughout the campaign, your mission is to restore the long-forgotten Jedi Order that was wiped out of existence. The protagonist is an Inquisitor sister that is trained in the dark side of the force under the all ruling Darth Vader. You will be accompanied with a few characters such as Prauf, Cere, and Greez that will help you throughout your missions on a variety of planets.
Throughout the game, you have to complete tasks like finding the list of children that are force sensitive, hidden in a Holocron inside an ancient Jedi temple. You will have to travel between a few planets in search for the secrets to unlock the Holocron. Learning more and more force, lightsaber, and attack skills along the way to help you in battle. Each level has hidden container boxes that can be unlocked by your droid, BD-1, that offer skins for your droid, cloths for Cal, paintjobs for your ship, and parts for your lightsaber.
Overall this is an amazing game and is very fun to play. This game is very addictive and will only take you twenty to twenty-five hours to beat. There isn’t an online section of the game, which is unfortunate, but the campaign is extremely exhilarating. The one downside to the game is the free rein aspect. Completing the campaign can be very easy, but some who isn’t using the game guide offered online could get lost just as easily. I recommend this game to anyone that is a huge Star Wars fan that wants to know more about what happens in-between the third and fourth episodes.
