Game is great, not sure what the deluxe comes with but definitely worth it.

"Deluxe" almost always means cosmetic bullshit only. Especially for EA and Ubisoft.

 

The only deluxe I know of that includes DLC is We Happy Few.

Just an FYI, it doesn’t look like there will be future DLC, so this will more than likely be the “complete edition” for a physical copy.

Love the game myself. Worth a buy.

Seems like now everything has been on sale this black friday weekend except Death Stranding, which is the one I want. Even Star Wars now which came out a week later and sold well.

I bought the regular version when Target fucked up a few weeks ago and sold it for $36. It’s very fun, but it runs pretty badly on a base PS4 FYI.

Nothing game breaking, but lots of instances of slowdown and frame rate dropping into the low teens in populated areas.

I know, I thought for sure we’d get DS for $40 by Cyber Monday. Maybe PSN will do a spotlight sale closer to Christmas?

Yeah, I’m still hoping they patch it. If it’s any comfort I’ve experienced bugs on the One X and on the Pro when it comes to framerate.

The game is still fun and I’d recommend it to any Star Wars fan (as long as they don’t mind the Dark Souls type nature of it).

Can't imagine ever paying more for that junk to begin with. Put it in a steel book or the documentary on a separate blu ray disc and it would be worth it.

 

I want to try the game but I only get ea games off Ebay used so I don't give them money.

EA does some terrible "Deluxe" versions.  That digital content can probably be found easily with a little searching if it interests you and it isn't something you would look at more than once anyways.  So it is basically two skins for a $10 premium and different box art.  I remember Star Wars Battlefront being similarly disappointing.

 

I'd love to give this game a shot, but going to wait a bit longer for a significant price drop like others.  If it was $40 on Best Buy I'd bite since I still have GCU for a bit longer.

Wanted to play this before Rise of Skywalker and since its $10 less than base said why not. Since Amazon matched and I had a bunch of points on my card from work travel earlier this year got it for like $18. Thanks OP.

The XB1 version is still in stock, meaning Amazon's still matching the price for that one.

So having put about 3-4 hours into this game, I can safely say I was right and the game is an average offering. Cinematically, they nailed it; just crushed it. But gameplay? It's a souls-lite and depending on your difficulty, your experience will vary wildly. At the lowest difficulty, it explains why soulsborne games never included an easymode because the game just becomes hollow and more a point A to B adventure. Higher up it is challenging, but the controls are clunky and mechanics are half-baked leaving you more frustrated with design than the enemies.

 

And the inclusion of Titanfall wall-running just proves they were out of ideas when copy/pasta'ing every souls mechanic into Jedi. Environments actually feel more like a rat maze for it, with every wall tattooed with scratches to indicate wall-runnable or vines for uncharted climbs. I can appreciate the verticality they were going for, but they stack maps in such a way that they feel unnatural and a far cry from excellent level design we've seen from outings in any souls game or Sony 1st party game. Respawn needs work in this department.

 

I can certainly see the complaints now that towards the end, players start to get bored or the tedium starts to stack up. The game just feels like a bowl of spaghetti, intertwined and messy with plenty of flavor from saucing but in the end trying to consume it becomes tedious the more you twirl your fork trying to get a decent bite.

Jodou, would you recommend a purchase and if so at what price, or is it a rental at best? I have a friend who owns it and has offered it to me to borrow after he beats it. He’s a Star Wars nut though so he likes to own anything related to the franchise. I enjoy the series though I don’t feel a need to own Fallen Order, unless there’s a super deal.

Definitely a rental as I don't see myself replaying the game. I'm obviously a huge SW fan and if they had nailed the souls-like feel to a T, I'd have recommended it to anyone -- not just fans. The combat just feels bad and parry/dodge doesn't want to cooperate. Personally, I hate parry as a mechanic in any game. I'd much rather master dodging attacks and remain on the offensive, but enemies tend to home in on where you dodge at times or are just so big it's impossible to get out of the way. I -think- they meant for you to use force slow during these instances in order to get clear, but I find the gap closer force move to do an insane amount of damage and a much better use of "mana". Many fights up to this point I have just brute forced by letting myself get hit and just following up with that move to hit them hard or completely break their guard for a flurry. Just seems silly to me that you can workaround an entire combat system that way and enemies just become tedious roadblocks at that point.

 

Oh and for some reason they thought adding a side-step dodge BEFORE you can roll away was a good idea. Basically your first dodge is more a darting motion, then dodging again tucks you into a roll. This leads me to get hit way more often because I'm so used to a dodge being simply a roll and there's no way to change this, it's hard-coded in the game. Absolutely hate it.

 

There's tons of loreLoL in the game, most of it is kinda theme-park thrown in like "look at me!" and less naturally occurring but it's clear they know their stuff at least. The story is definitely captivating right from the start though.

 

It's clear the kind of game they wanted to make but the results are like someone who cheated on an English paper and less-than-perfectly copied paragraphs by changing words and sentences around.

Thank you for the feedback! I'm quite surprised the deluxe version seems to be sold out or discontinued everywhere. No one sells it anymore... not target, best buy, amazon, or walmart.

Not discounting your opinion, but Bloodborne also added a sidestep dodge when you are locked on to an enemy (pretty much always when fighting) and I really enjoyed the play in that game personally (one of the few games I actually have a Platinum).  That felt a little weird when I started that game as well.  Are you a fan of that, I'm just asking because I'm a Souls/Borne/Nioh fan and am teetering on getting it before a significant price drop?
