Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is out today worldwide and if you are wondering where all the marketing and review coverage is from SA, we are wondering the same thing. EA Games has kept this title under lock and key mainly due to the single-player story aspect of the game but also because well, EA’s reputation is dodgy at the moment and they have changed the way they approach new releases.

In all, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order clocks in at roughly 20 hours to complete, but when I finished the main campaign I still had large swaths of planets to further explore. The only thing I knew is that wanted more.

IGN – 9.0

Despite these numerous little problems, Respawn’s maiden voyage with Star Wars is largely a success.

The inspirations taken from Dark Souls, Uncharted, and Metroid Prime unite to create something unique that just happens to work incredibly well for this beloved license. Like most starships in this universe, Jedi: Fallen Order could use a little polish, but the rust doesn’t hold it back from roaring with excitement. – Read the full review

But especially as it wears on, Fallen Order becomes perhaps the strongest conception of what playing as a Jedi Knight ought to really be like. It’s true that Fallen Order borrows liberally from other action games, but those elements work together with Respawn’s combat and environment design, and a story that finds humanity in the Force and in its characters, to hone in on what makes the world of Star Wars worthy of revisiting again and again. Even with some rough edges, Fallen Order represents one of the most compelling game additions to the Star Wars franchise in years.- Read the full review
