Review – Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order (PS5)

There are plenty of Star Wars games out there, but having played most of them, I wondered if there was anything left to say. Since the most recent game was Battlefront II, I started there. I hate the way that Battlefront II handled the single-player campaign. It was a terrible rehash of the original Battlefront that was already flawed. Star Wars: Jedi: Fallen Order is nowhere near as bad, but it is still a flawed game.

You play a Jedi Padawan on a quest to save your master and the galaxy. The game takes place in one of the Star Wars movies and follows the “Legends” story line. The game is a third-person action-adventure that features a quick-travel system and a companion robot named T3-M4. The game’s dialogue is written by fans, and is designed to be similar to the original Star Wars trilogy.

I finally got my hands on the newest Star Wars game, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I had been curious about the game ever since it was announced, but was never able to pick it up. I finally got Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and it’s been a while since I’ve completed an open world game.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Respawn’s Souls-like take on the Star Wars property, was one of the year’s greatest shocks. After a string of huge failures with the Battlefront games, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order proved that EA could make a half-decent Star Wars game. This was accomplished by allowing the creators to pursue their ideas without intervention from the company, as we will witness in 2020’s excellent Star Wars: Squadrons. With a completely new next-gen build, Fallen Order is now available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X. Is it worth your time to play the game again in 2021, given how we all played it in 2019?

BD-1 has a special place in our home.

This PS5 version will not include any new gameplay or material. This is, for all intents and purposes, the same game as in 2019. The one that 10 million people bought in the first year or so it was on the market. It’s likely that you’ve already played it. I certainly did. And, of course, I enjoyed it, but the game was a very typical example of a high-quality and extremely enjoyable “one-and-done” experience. So, if you chose to play it again, you’ll be playing the same game you did before, with the same narrative, characters, gameplay, and, to be honest, even the same visuals.

Fallen Order Cal

So, without further ado, here’s Wonderwall.

Let me be clear: I’m not claiming that Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a bad game. Not at all. When it comes to graphics, it’s still very attractive, but it’s also quite good-looking for a PS4 and Xbox One game. I never felt like I was playing a game like Control or Dirt 5 that looked excellent even by next-gen standards. On your PS5, this appears just like a high-budget PS4 game, and when you activate the option to run it at a higher resolution, you hardly notice the difference. If you stop the game and fiddle about with the picture mode editor, which is one of the few improvements in this version, you’ll notice the increased resolution.

Second Sister

Still preferable than Phasma.

Now, if you choose Performance Mode (which, oddly enough, is not the default setting), the game will run at a little lower resolution, similar to how it was displayed on a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X, but at a rock-solid 60 frames per second. This is by far the most impressive aspect of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. The ability to play this game at double the frame rate makes the game’s already silky smooth and exciting combat even more engaging, with improved controller responsiveness. Unfortunately, the DualSense’s capabilities are seldom used. Haptic feedback is utilized in little ways, but the triggers aren’t exploited to their full potential. It’s a little disappointing, but I can live with it.


“What are you saying?” says the narrator.

This is a difficult question. Yes, the PlayStation 5 edition of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is the finest one out there in terms of technical specifications, simply because you get a better framerate and somewhat faster loading times. However, because we all purchased and played the game two years ago, double-dipping makes little sense right now. If you’re one of the small percentage of PS5 owners who hasn’t yet played Fallen Order, this is an essential must-have. For everyone else, you’ll need to be completely enamored with it to justify a second playing on a different platform.


Although the resolution has been improved, and I appreciate the addition of a 60fps option, Jedi: Fallen Order only looks somewhat better in this version than it did on the PS4 and Xbox One.

This PS5 version has a higher framerate, which results in better fighting and more responsive controls. Unfortunately, the DualSense’s capabilities are seldom used.

Classic Star Wars sound effects, excellent voice acting, a great music befitting a Star Wars game, and even some Mongolian rock that doesn’t seem out of place.

For all intents and purposes, it’s essentially the same game as previously, with a few minor tweaks. It’s not ideal for experienced players, but it’s a necessity for first-timers.

Final Score: 8.5
