Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Official Gameplay Demo


Recommended Posts

I just watched this properly and I think it is impressive how well Repawn has graphically presented the Star Wars look and feel.

However the overall gameplay looks incredibly generic and boring, especially when we know what a studio like Respawn is capable of. The enemy AI for the Stormtroopers looks braindead and the fights look boring. And there’s too much platforming/traversing in this demo that isn’t interesting.

One of the first proper PC games I played online was Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, and I’m not sure if it’s the nostalgia but it feels like later games on that series had more interesting lightsaber action and fighting and certainly this game looks dull in comparison.

I feel like J:FO is aiming to be more of a Force Unleashed-style game than a Jedi Academy-style game. The lack of a blaster is a dead giveaway for that, as well as the much heavier lightsaber (although Padmé does mention in "Holocron Heist" that Anakin's lightsaber was heavier than she expected).

It looks fun in it's own right, though, and Cal seems like a likable character. The lack of an alternative Dark Side ending is definitely disappointing, because that has been a staple in singleplayer Star Wars games since DFII.

This just looks like a remade SW: The Force Unleashed.  With extra Vaseline.  Seriously, I've never seen 4K footage look like 720p until now.  TAA is ruining games ontop of the already bad developer design decisions.. but I digress.

We all wanted a new Jedi Academy, right?  Sad we're not getting one..

*sigh*

Some games I enjoy and treat them like blockbuster action movies - something satisfying about watching millions of dollars unfurl in front of you. It's still looks enjoyable or should I say, consumable. But it's a disappointment given the budget and the potential from the studio.

It really looks like it's been sanded down and then mushed together with vaseline, like it's been polished too much.

      This is a replacement 0.1 second video for Halo Infinite; use it to "skip" the intro video.

      If you prefer, you may also generate this video yourself, using the following ffmpeg command:
      ffmpeg -f lavfi -i color=color=black:size=3840x2160 -t 0.1 intro.mp4

      In Martian Gothic: Unification, the ending video (<path-to-game>\data\outro.bik) can be corrupted. The other videos aren't. If it is, when it should play the game crash. The used game installation was fully updated with all the available patches.
      Can be tested if it's corrupted using the last RAD Video Tools/Bink and Smacker (Actually Bink 2021.3/Smacker 4.2e) and trying to playing it. If its corrupted it should play with big greens and blues squares as the screenshot. Also MPC-HC doesn't play the video (only the audio) but VLC plays it normally.
      It seems it's about of using a different encoding than the others videos, which doesn't match the binkw32.dll bundled with the game. The game seems to be using Bink compatible with RAD Video Tools 1.0e (which is the one available when this game was launched), and the video is created with 0.8 or below, or a higher version.
      So the attached video is the same video reencoded with Rad Video Tools 1.0e. To fix the video, change the original file in <path-to-game>\data\outro.bik with this one.
      No need to point it out, but this is the ending and it has spoilers, although not the big ones.

      This is a collection of the most important and useful fixes for Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on Steam in one centralised, and easy to download file. The collection contains:
      40, 50, 60 and Unlimited FPS executable files originally created by PCGamingwiki Moderator "Garrett" that can replace the game's original .exe file to play at the desired framerate. Config files for playing in 1440p and 4K with Cloth Simulation enabled which can simply be dragged into the user's "Appdata" directory. Replacement "LevelPack" contents to fix missing sounds for levels near the end of the game, originally created by Steam user "Sweetz". A READ ME.txt file with easy to follow installation instructions. Thanks to the original contributors for making this game playable for so many people over the years - have fun! 😄
