    Linear 8 hours long action game - "writing team". Each writer wrote a couple of sentences?

    Admittably I only played it for 1 hour before I had to go to sleep for work but colour me surprised, so far it seems and most importantly -feels- quite decent thing. We'll see how it shapes up to be later.

    One thing is a bummer tho', ever since Disney took over there hasn't been proper intro scroll in anything but mainline movies. Can't get into Star Wars mood without it.

    Looks normal to me since it's not the normal version.

    Still waiting for a Star Wars game that has lightsaber combat that rivals the old Jedi Knight 2 Outcast and Jedi Academy. Didn't care for Force Unleashed. Doesn't seem like this game has it either. Continuing my boycott of EA.

    I thought it's about stronk wamman exercising violence against alien refugees and a young white male.

    Kinda like a twisted take on feminist revenge fantasies.

    Unbelievable, even more than 2 decades after Jedi Knight 1, and almost 2 decades since JKII/Jedi Academy they STILL cannot make a Jedi game with proper lightsaber combat. Just watch the video, you can slice into enemy bodies as much as you want and nothing gets chopped off; you only win after draining the health bar. WTF...and no open use of Force in combat.

    This is why Force unleashed was pure shit, and so is this.

    The chopping off bits of enemies was a dev console command in the jedi games, at release none allowed it.

    Everything I've read has said 15 hours for main story, up to 30 hours if you do everything.

    So, that 92% rating on Steam tickled my balls and I didn't buy an RX 5700 XT just to play RimWorld, so I caved and bought the game. :argh:

    About 1 1/2 hours in I can say that this is some extremely well polished popamole and probably the best AKSHUN game EA has released in years.

    I also haven't chopped off any limbs yet, as Stormtroopers pretty much just fall over like in the movies, BUT you can split bugs in half, which is very satisfying.

    A Lando Star Wars game could be good.

    Fake news. You could always slice off arms in all Jedi Knight games, also hands in Outcast/Academy. Full dismemberment was the console command in Outcast and Academy.

    They legally cannot do slashing, because they are owned by Disney. If they do the slashing against Disney orders they will be fired, fined and blackflagged in the indusrty. Why is it so hard to understand?
    Btw, if you played any of those games, you would've known that dismembering is in fact in, but only works on non-humanoid enemies...

    I feel like people are having a hard time accepting EA made a good Star Wars game. :lol:

    P.S. This has way more Prince of Persia/Tomb Raider style shit in it than I originally thought. So think Dark Souls + that.

    A good star wars game today would be Bounty Hunter: Mos Eisley Stories. Collecting wookie pelts, the butthead band playing that tune, and chasing swoop biker babes.

    Hmmm the progression system feels quite natural to me. Google the skill tree.

    You can use force powers in combat...

    Another tip: I know everyone hates chromatic aberration. I do too. However this game looks weird without it, and is definitely designed around it, and it's not THAT bad looking. I turned it back on and would suggest you at least give it a go.
