Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order
November 15, 2019
Explore different planets in the universe as the last remaining Jedi to discover the Jedi Lore as Cal Kestis.
The game starts on a dreary planet Bracca, where a storm is brewing outside. There are drones flying around and the music is punky and in alien language. Then an alien talks to a human wearing a mask, a brief interaction later, you gain control of the human. Prauf the alien then leads you up and down the big ship, which ends at the Shipbreaking Yard. The game teaches you how to climb, slide and swing through ropes as you navigate your way around the ship.
A brief running around later, an Ibis Maw appears to wreck some havoc. Prauff then realises who Cal is. The story switches between a cut scene and you controlling Cal. If you are not a Star Wars fan, you can get confused with how the game works. Jedi Fallen Order is a game that falls between episodes 3 and 4 in the Star Wars series. At the start, it feels more like a movie than a game.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order teaches you how to play in 3 ways. The first way is to listen to what Cal says, such as there's an opening in the shooting or a gap to jump. During your first boss fight is with The Second Sister, the game pops up messages and how to perform basic manoeuvres like evade. The 3rd way is when Cal meditates for a new skill, his mentor Jaro Tapal appears. In the Meditation realm, Cal recalls Jedi lessons. He has to master the skill to pass the test that Jaro sets.
The game rewards good fighting skills and fast reflexes while discourages lazy fighting styles. If you keep pressing the attack button, the enemy might block and parry and kill you instead. Learn how to parry, evade, block and use the force, and Cal will be a force to be reckoned with. Cal is rescued by Cere Junda and Greez Dritus, and soon found himself onboard the Mantis.
Their first stop is the planet Bogano, Cere sends Cal to retrieve something from a Jedi Vault. There, you will find a meditation spot to save your game and access your skill tree. There are 3 sections to your tree, and each skill requires a specific amount of skill points. You have Lightsaber, Survival and Force sections, and all the skills look tempting. You earn skill points by attacking enemies, or have your trusty android BD-1 scan planets and monsters. You can also gain skill points when you find special Force and Life Essences. These Force and LIfe Essences increase Cal's reserves, so you can use the force more frequently and endure hits before dying.
On top of fighting alien monsters, the Empire's stormtroopers and Inquisitors, Cal has to solve puzzles. The game is essentially a quest for Cal to rediscover himself in order to restart the Jedi Order. The puzzles are not very hard, but it forces you to think outside the box and use every tool you have: mainly the Force that is within you. Miss a step and you will fall to your death and have to restarted at a meditation point.
Learn how to time your blocks correctly to parry, which rewards you with enemy's guard gauge going down. You and the enemy both have a life and guard gauge. To successfully kill the enemy, you have to deplete its life. But stronge enemies have defense that you need to reduce before your hits cause more damage. Practice timing your parry with easier enemies like stormtroopers and smaller monsters, once you have that down pat, you can parry and attack easily.
If you get killed by an enemy, your experience points, life and force stays with the enemy. So to get your points back, you have to travel back to the enemy and land a hit on the enemy to get your points back. Use the force and time your blocks correctly to avoid getting eaten by monster aliens. In Jedi Fallen Order, stormtroopers have slightly better aims, Cal will get shot at. When there is a group of stormtroopers, take out the shooters first before going against the strongest. Getting shot at is not only annoying, it can also deplete Cal's defense and the strong enemy will kill you.
There are 3 temples you have to get to before you can head back to the Vault. In Jedi Fallen Order, you have 4 puzzles in total to solve during the skills that Cal has. As the game progresses, Cal learns a lot about the Empire and events that happened when he was trying to survive in Bracca.
Aside from the main quest, Cal can go on the treasure hunt for stim canisters, force essences, chest containing clothing items. Your friend Buddy (real name is BD-1) often sits on your back and helps you by hacking computers and scanning enemy data. Buddy can also store stim canisters, and when you need to replenish your life, he can help you with that. You will not be able to reach all the treasure when you first visit. When you gain more skill, you can travel back to the planet to try again. Certain chests and items will need you to use a few skills to reach, but it is worth it.
Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is adventure game with battles thrown in by default. While some enemies are harder, it can be rewarding once you master the enemy's timing to block, parry and attack. Remember not to keep pressing the attack button, and Cal should be able to win the battle. For puzzle games, you do need some patience as the once slip will cause Cal to start all over again.
When you reach a meditation point, save frequently. These meditation points are usually near a hard fight or a puzzle. But, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is a game that tells you a story about the fall of the Jedi Order under Order 66 by the Galactic Republic. Will Cal revive the Jedi, who knows?
