‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ Is the Best ‘Star Wars’ Game I’ve Played…But It’s Not Without Out Its Faults

For the past couple of months, the buzz around Star Wars has been something else. First, there was The Mandalorian which grasped the hearts of millions with its incredible storytelling and fascinating new characters. And then, shortly thereafter, the highly-anticipated game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order arrived, sending Star Wars fans into even happier pandemonium. I heard the excited chatter and was thrilled to one day play the game.

Nine days ago we finally got the game and it wasn’t long before we got to work. In short, the experience was thrilling. The story was engaging, the thoughtful combat style is very difficult and sometimes maddening (in a good way), the graphics are well-done and at times one can easily just stand in an area and stare at the impressive surroundings. So…where’s the catch, you may ask? Continue reading ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ Is the Best ‘Star Wars’ Game I’ve Played…But It’s Not Without Out Its Faults

The ‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ Gameplay Is Amazing

I’m a HUGE gamer. I’ve been one since I was a child. As a little girl, I would play Super Mario Bros, the fighting game Tatsunoko vs. CapcomSuper Smash Bros, and MarioKart until I dropped. I got older and graduated to the XBOX where I’ve played Mortal Kombat XDestiny and Destiny 2Call of Duty: Advanced WarfareRise of the Tomb RaiderAssassins: CreedOverwatch, etc. And then there are the Star Wars games.

On my Nintendo Wii, I had Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and I LOVED it!

Yeah, the graphics are pretty terrible looking now. This game was made a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

The Force Unleashed is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and follows the story of Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, a man named Galen Marek, who is the son of a Jedi Darth Vader killed. Galen, at first Darth Vader’s lead assassin who hunted down and killed rogue Jedi, turned against his master and tried to set on his own path.

It’s a really interesting story that is SUPER fun to play. Leia makes a surprise cameo which is fun. The game also had a two-player duel option where you can face off against a friend and fight with the iconic characters of the game such as Luke Skywalker, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan, Darth Vader, etc. My sister and I would always play with Anakin and Obi-Wan Skywalker, hence recreating our own duel between them. 🙂

But after The Force Unleashed, I haven’t played any other Star Wars games except for the Lego Star Wars games and the MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic, making my excitement for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order that much more special for me.

Destiny: A Fantastic Game You Should Definitely Play

I love games. Years ago I had Nintendo’s console, the Wii, and I loved playing games such as MarioKart, Super Mario Bros. and many other fantastic Nintendo games. In 2014 I switched to the XBOX 1 and one of the very first games I got was Destiny. Destiny is made from the creators of Halo and the company who has created Call of Duty. After three years and four amazing expansions Destiny has become, to me, the best shooting game on any console. So on that note let me tell you why I think this it’s the best.

The Game Is Beautiful!

You see this picture. Usually games have pictures that look a lot prettier than the actual game. This is how Destiny really looks. I don’t know how many times I’ve walked around the world and just stopped to look at everything around me. And there are so many beautiful locations to explore that it’ll take a long time to discover every nook and cranny in the worlds. I’m literally still finding stuff.

The Guardians

The Guardians are the characters you play in Destiny. There are three classes that you can use: the warlock, a titan, and a hunter. They each have three subclasses to learn and enjoy. My favorite class is the hunter and the subclass I like to use the most for the hunter is the Nightstalker. The Nightstalker is a hunter that relies on grenades and smoke bombs to face its enemies. There are also three types of species you can create to be your guardian. You can be a human, a colorful alien that is called an Awoken, and a robotic character called an Exo. You can create a male or female of each and there are various ways you can make your character look. This is another reason why I love Destiny. It’s such a customizable game. You can pick between a variety of beautiful gear and guns to make your guardian the coolest in Destiny. There are also dozens of shaders you can use to color your guardian’s clothing.

The Story

Not only is this game remarkably beautiful but after the first game and four expansions this game has a story that is very long and very fun. There dozens upon dozens of quests, small and large, and each gives you cool prizes. I’ve been playing for years and still have not finished all of the quests because some are very difficult to complete.

The PVP

This is my favorite part of Destiny, the pvp. It’s called The Crucible and there are over a dozen different modes to play. The Crucible rewards gear, ships, speeder bikes that on Destiny are called Sparrows, guns, and shaders. The competitive multiplayer can hold up to twelve players with two teams of six. Some modes only allow six players with two teams of three. There’s one mode called Rumble where you are not on a team at all and have to fight five other players. There is also a weekly tournament that players can play to show their pvp skills. All in all The Crucible is very, very fun.

Dungeons and Raids

Another mode that makes Destiny so fun are the dungeons and raids. You play the dungeons with two other players and you go through an area filled with groups of enemies and at the end of every dungeon you have to fight a very tough boss. These dungeons are not easy and sometimes can take over an hour to finish. The raids are even more complicated. To do a raid you have to create a group of six people. Once in the cooperative six-player mode you’ll have to face hordes of enemies, challenging puzzles, and brutal bosses. If you manage to finish a raid you will be rewarded with the finest prizes Destiny has to offer. I love the fact that after all of these years there are now so many different dungeons and raids to play. And the amazing thing is they’re still very difficult.

So this is Destiny. If you haven’t played it yet I urge you to try it. You will not be dissapointed. This game is playable on the XBOX 360, XBOX 1, and Playstation 4. To be able to play the Crucible, dungeons and raids you will need to have XBOX gold. If you have poor internet connection Destiny might be a little difficult to play because you’re constantly online. Destiny’s servers sometimes crash when a lot of people are on but other than that the game is nearly perfect. I hope you enjoyed this post and if you end up getting Destiny I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do.
