I pre-ordered it because pre-order gets ORANGE LIGHTSABER which is now Canon (yay! I have more orange lightsabers - 6 - than any other colour lol) and have to say Iwas not otherwise hopeful given EA's recent track record with SW games...
...but I was wrong this game is tremendously FUN, especially the lightsaber combat. Maybe the best lightsaber combat since the Jedi Knight/Academy games waaaaay back.
What I esp like is it isnt just a 'button masher' like TFU but rather you need to pay close attention to controlling distance and timing of blocks, parry and strikes and coordinating lightsaber tactics with using Force powers to handle foes which makes you feel fully immersed in being a Jedi way more than most previous games. BRAVO for that!
Yes there are some day zero launch bugs but nothing game breaking and they'll be fixed by patches I'm sure.
And I'm not a platformer game fan so the 'Metroidvania' navigation/exploration system's verticality and jumping puzzles arent my favourite part of this game but ymmv eh? The progression system (no EA lootbox microtransaction shenanigans yay!), Dark-Souls-esque think-tactically-dont-just-go-berserk combat system and the characters/story 'fit' into SW continuity is fine...I like this game.
My only real complaint was the camera gets wonky sometimes and if that happens during combat or say wallrunning it can be very annoying (and 'fatal') but I expect they'll patch that fast, I hope.
Otherwise I'm very happy this game exceeded my expectations and would give the game two thumbs up.
