    It's a very solid action-adventure-puzzle game, with movement and puzzle mechanics similar to PS4 God of War and the Uncharted games. Some of the temple puzzles actually had me well and truly stumped, as there is no real hint system. Lots of little moments where you need to use your force powers in clever/unexpected ways to get past an obstacle.

    The combat is nothing spectacularly innovative, but it is at least fun and visually sumptuous. Difficulty is really only challenging at Master+, where literally any combat mistake = death.

    Graphics are great and the landscapes are incredibly immersive and cool. First game in years that truly feels Star Warsy.

    The big pitfall of the game is the lack of real customization and secondary rpg elements. A large part of the exploration aspect is spent running around finding all these secret treasures and bits and bobs that ultimately don't give you any game benefits beyond an extended health bar. Almost all of it is just vanity stuff for your droid/ship/poncho/saber. Combat progression is derived solely from your level-based skill tree.

    Story is okay. Spoiler-free summary:

    You're a Padawan who survived Order66. You join a crew with another jedi-on-the-lam and you go off on quest with the endgoal of rebuilding the Jedi Order. Main antagonist is Second Sister, a tortured kinda sexyugly edgelord chick. She and the rest of the Inquisitors are tasked by Vader with rooting out the remaining Jedi. The game also deals with the murky and not so pleasant origins of Inquisitors a la mind rape. Nothing about the story will blow you away, but on the whole, it's fine.


    All in all, it is the best Star Wars game since OG Force Unleashed and was well worth the AAA price tag, so if you can get it on the cheap, definitely definitely worth picking up.
