4 years after the excellent Jedi: Fallen Order, Respawn Entertainment invites us to go on an adventure with Jedi Knight Cal Kestis and his sidekick BD-1 to discover the rest of their adventures.
The highly anticipated single-player narrative action game for fans of the Star Wars saga (Very close to RPG) has just landed, on April 28th, on our consoles and PC. Now, it remains to be seen if the title will be any better than its predecessor and if this long wait is really worth it!
So, shall we embark on the adventure, too?
It’s been five years since the end of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, but Cal Kestis and BD-1 are still being hunted by bounty hunters, especially the Galactic Empire. The adventure begins on Coruscant, where Cal, who has been captured, fights for his survival against Senator Daho Sejan as well as against Rayvis, the leader of the Chaos Raiders.
For the rest, I will not add anything, otherwise the first minutes of the game will be spoiled! 🤫
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor clearly takes the basics of the previous opus by improving its gameplay a bit. The battles feel more fluid and the game mechanics more intuitive.
Personally, to discover this game, I chose the PS5 version (The console I’m not going to let go of now) And we will not hide it, the combinations are amazing and we will be amazed again.
But before I say too much, I let you discover it here:
One thing that directly surprised me, and I can’t explain why, was that I connected more with the character Cal in this title, but also felt more involved with the story. Maybe this is due to writing changes or shifts in terms of the main character’s charisma? The fact that he has aged?
Anyway, I got hooked on Survivor more quickly!
Beyond some bugs, response time, and optimization issues (The game weighs 140GB on my console disc), we are very excited to explore Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, discover its secrets and follow its very original and captivating plot.
Let’s be clear, in the few hours Star Wars Jedi: Survivor makes me feel like it’s going to be a good game. Certainly not a memorable game but clearly a very good Star Wars game that should be in your game library. The universe is decent, the dynamic battles and the story told make me have a good time.
Finally, between that and being able to cut through storm troopers or any droids, that’s obviously what we’re looking for, right?
Well, that’s not all, but I’ll be back! 😎
