    Sadly, supposedly you cannot cut people, other than the odd hand here and there. :decline:
    That secret modification of the JK series was awesome.

    I'm 40 and pretty much never play games like this but I found the platforming pretty simplistic honestly. The combat could be hard at times (on one up from default difficulty) but not too bad. End boss was super annoying though so I turned it down to normal to beat it.

    I'm not really sure about that either. I'm hoping it's included on EA Play since that's going to get rolled in to game pass in a week or two but I was looking at the same slightly conflicting info as you since as far as I can tell that's the only game on EA Play I'm potentially interested in. On the bright side, if you don't get an answer and you hold off buying it during this sale I'll try to pipe up in the thread once EA Play's added to game pass and then you can buy it (Or not) during the winter sale.

    It's a pretty solid game at what it's doing, so if you like that... Dark Souls and Tomb Raider with lightsabers... then I'd say it's worth a go. It nails the Star Wars vibe, even if the storyline itself is meh.

    Finished the game today, took 25 hours total, with 90%+ stuff explored. Very good game surprisingly, and calling it a mix of Dark Souls and Tomb Raider is pretty accurate (but more Dark Souls). It's nowhere near GOTY material of course, but I enjoyed the time spent.

    My biggest surprise was level design. I was expecting a typical, casual corridor design with simple left - right - straight, but instead got a pretty complex level design with secrets, puzzles, verticality and some hard to reach places. Clearly a lot of thought was put into this.

    Good things:
    - combat is good; not as fluid as DS or Nioh, but enjoyable; reading enemy patterns and reacting properly with dodge / block / parry / attack
    - as mentioned above, level design
    - droid companion made me like him
    - good / intuitive controls, things work exactly like you want them
    - good enemy variety
    - some memorable moments

    Worse things:
    - the are moments when hitboxes are off, you are hit when you shouldn't be (rare)
    - most of the chests contain just cosmetics; not very motivating to explore as for rewards
    - clearly a 'modern' game; many powerful / reliable / strong women, with strong black women being the certain plot characters; it's not 'in your face' / annoying though, just noticeable
    - some puzzles are annoying
    - ending sucks

    Good example of combat, showing somebody who knows what he's doing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWoYXc6JRR0

    Overall 7.5/10. Not worth $60, but good enough at 60% off or $5 per month on EA Play.

    The level design surprised me too. The planets are a lot bigger than they initially seem, with a lot of varied locations on each one that are fun to discover. I also appreciated how it wasn’t completely static - progressing through the story does trigger certain changes, like stormtroopers moving in to occupy areas they didn’t before, or coming back to find new enemies attacking your ship, etc.

    I do hope that in a sequel we get more meaningful equipment, or at least something to loot besides cosmetics. It would be nice to incorporate something like saber styles too, since there’s nothing like Dark Souls’ different weapon movesets to change up your playstyle.

    Yeah, I was rolling my eyes a bit on Kashyyyk when nearly every single rebel soldier you come across is a woman. Then again the protagonist is a white guy, surprisingly. I guess they had to overcompensate.

    Yeah, lightsaber styles are one of my favourite aspects about Jedi Academy's Movie Battles 2 mod. If JFO 2 implements a similar saber-style mechanic I'll be very happy.

    Says a lot about EA that everyone who eventually tries this is like "holy shit it's a good game."
