“Why fight if you can’t win?” The old tale of the underdog against the oppressor is still popular, especially when he wields a lightsaber. In Jedi Survivor, his name is Cal Kestis, and he’s the only Jedi to survive the Great Annihilation of his order. Along with the other rebels and his little robot sidekick, he takes over Evil empire.
Jedi Survivor has everything you’d expect from a blockbuster. The stunning opening scene is finger-licking good, and anyone familiar with the Star Wars universe is instantly drawn into the story. You don’t have to have played the previous Fallen Order game from 2019 for this. The game is richly provided cut scenes Which not only makes you focus, but also has a good balance between action, some skill tests and some puzzles.
The action takes place from a third person perspective and mainly revolves around – woosh woosh! – Battles around with your lightsaber. You have different methods, such as a single “Normal”, a Darth Maul-esque double-sword combination or two separate swords. It is also possible to combine the firearm, although it is strange that you can only choose two of these “stances” at the same time per game piece. The buttons won’t get you very far, though, as combat is largely about dodging and dodging.
In addition to fusion with your lightsaber, you can also slam with The Force, and that feels pretty solid right from the start. It’s also great for remotely hitting a stormtrooper off a ledge with a flick of your hand, or making enemies attack each other. Especially with the different “situations” you have enough options to keep the battles interesting. The variety of enemies and the moments when you get help from another character also contribute to this. The small downsides are that you can no longer thwart an attack, and that the camera can run a little faster during an evasive maneuver.

Borrowing is in progress
Like almost all major games in this genre, you have a wide scope skill tree To become stronger and unlock more skills. It is not original, and it must be said that “Jedi Survivor” borrows more from other games. Climbing parties look like they’re out of Uncharted, and wall run Very similar to “Titanfall” borrowed from “Prince of Persia”, the grappling hook you shoot is antique “Batman Arkham”. It is these mechanisms that hide the uniqueness of “Jedi Survivor”.
Especially since the carabiner doesn’t actually look like Star Wars, and you can only use it in a few fixed places. But hey, a few twists in the lightsaber make up for all that, and Cale feels pretty solid right from the get-go. A great option, because a lot of games let you work for a long time as a beginner before you really get to have fun. In addition to the low entry threshold for the combat system, the game has great difficulty levels, so you can have fun even as an absolute beginner.
As you might expect, “Jedi Survivor” is full of nods to the movies and other “Star Wars” content, from famous sayings to characters and locations. At the beginning of the story on Coruscant, “Jedi Survivor” doesn’t escape the typical gray metallic space station environments, but then you can explore more fun open worlds with mountains, ruins, and Jedi temples. These typical voices from the Star Wars universe definitely offer added value, the music is solid and the voice actors’ performances are decent to excellent.
Graphically, the game is pretty loud, except for the faces that sometimes show strange features. Nice are the options you have here as well, to start with between more performance and quality. Viewing your field of view also has five positions, and if you suffer from motion sickness while gaming, you can make your camera movements steadier in a couple of ways. You can make the letters large enough to read from a seat relatively far from the TV, for example. It seems like a small thing, but many designers seem to assume that every player is glued to the screen.
Although ‘Jedi Survivor’ doesn’t appear for previous generation consoles, you do have to squeeze through some narrow corridors, a known trick for game developers to gain a few seconds to load a new part of the map. So it seems that the makers of the images have considered some graphic limitations, and specialized sites also indicate that sometimes the images become less smooth or even visibly stutter.
But what is mainly criticized for “Jedi Survivor” is the many bugs and glitches in the PC version. This concerns, for example, characters who suddenly fly into the air or start twitching violently, opponents who crash into abyss or get stuck in walls, and so on. The console versions are less affected by this, but many gamers still report annoyances as well as complete crashes.
In short, Star Wars: Jedi Survivor is pretty solid, and if creator Respawn Entertainment can fix the issues, they’ll be an absolute winner.
