EA and Respawn Entertainment’s “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” has just been released. Many video game players and Star Wars fans are aiming to pick up this action-adventure game featuring the jedi, Cal Kestis. However, the reviews about the game often say that this game works the same as other titles in the market.

Reviews about “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” often point out that its story fails to break the mold of the original "Star Wars" stories. According to the Los Angeles Times and The Verge, Cal Kestis’ journey is similar to the Skywalkers and other "Star Wars" protagonists as they explore further as a Jedi, hop from planet to planet, and eventually save the galaxy from a major threat. This game doesn’t push the envelope when it comes to "Star Wars" franchise.

However, many fans are able to live the power fantasy of being a lightsaber-wielding Jedi in this game albeit its developers put a grounded spin to it. Instead of simply overpowering every foe with telekinetic powers and running them through with a plasma sword, players will need to manage a stamina bar as they fight. Due to this system, players will need to manage how Cal Kestis fights his foes unless he could be left open in a fights where odds are always against him.

Outside of its gameplay system, the new game is said to bring newcomers and longtime "Star Wars" fans for a ride with its setting. The game is set after the events of the Jedi purge and the Empire has not yet been fully defeated. However, following the continuity of the current “Star Wars” story ultimately shows that players will follow the quest of an unsuccessful hero.

The event left many surviving Jedi in hiding including the protagonist. However, the protagonist is forced to fight as a Jedi once more and help Resistance soldiers find the next generation of Jedis to rebuild the order. Again, the protagonist’s quests seems similar to known “Star Wars” protagonists in the movies where the Jedi order is tried to be rebuilt in some form despite the lack of newer candidates.

Even with its standard story, fans can be sure to expect amazing gameplay in the “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.” The game was just released this November 15 and its sure to be available in retail stores nationwide.
