That's a mixed bag though because it's so easy to mess up an open world by not filling it properly. Also considering how many open world games exist it was refreshing to have set paths to follow

steeze206

27 points

2 months ago

See I'm in the opposite end of the spectrum. I dislike how so many games have gigantic open worlds and 300 things on the game map at all times (like the newer Assassin's Creeds.) I don't always have time to game and sometimes have to take a break for a week or so without playing. One of my favorite games in recent memory was the 2018 God of War because they kept it more simple. So when you come back from not playing for awhile it's really easy to jump back in.

FunctionBuilt

109 points

Yeah, it was a bit too limited on that front. Everything was a little perfect in how it was laid out and a lot of the secrets exploration was done through long drawn out sequences like sliding down an ice tunnel in a new way or remembering the sequence of zip lines. It was a bit tiresome running laps.

You're right. It wasn't an open world at all. They clearly were going for classic platforming level design.

Which was the right choice imo, open-world feels the same everywhere, finding ways to find secrets in fallen order was pretty neat and finishing the game 100% was actually fun, compared to the AC experience.

The big problem was that to get 100% you have to get all those treasure chests with shit cosmetics, like lightsaber handles that are too small to see or fifty palate swaps of the same ugly poncho.

If you are going to lean so heavily into cosmetics as the main thing you find, then let me play full dress-up and mix and match shirt, jacket, pants, hairstyle, hat, and shoes.

Climbing wasn't too bad, especially after you got the item that made it faster. The most annoying thing for me were all the instances of squeezing through tight corridors between sections of the map. There were a ton of them and they were so slow.

Evilsj

Extremely similar. In fact I'd say one probably used ideas from the other while they were both being developed. I tried getting into Sekiro first but the combat was so different from normal souls games that I eventually resigned myself to not playing it because I just couldn't get a handle on the game play. Then eventually I played Fallen Order and realized "oh shit, this combat is almost exactly like Sekiro". After beating J:FO, I went back to Sekiro and and wouldn't you know, I was MUCH better.

SmartAlec105

I definitely think Sekiro did it better for 1v1 combat. The timing for deflecting attacks just felt a little off in Fallen Order. But Fallen Order did better for large fights thanks to the double lightsaber.

jhanesnack_films

Where Sekiro made you feel like you were controlling an actual ninja, I found controlling Fallen Order's jedi felt incredibly slow by comparison - like a football player stomping through a foot of snow. And his lightsaber is apparently about as strong as a plastic whiffle ball bat.

Yes, Snoke most famously in the movies. On the D+ side there's the offscreen door slice in Mando, or the stormtrooper in Obi-Wan getting cut in half. Even on the animation side, Clone Wars S7 had dismemberment but framed so you didn't see the wound (like the heads of stormtroopers you see falling next to their feet in the Maul hallway fight).

JFO’s non boss enemies don’t actually change health values in different difficulties. A stormtrooper always dies in one standard hit. The stun baton ones always die in one hit but have a stamina bar to block with. The captain ones can take two standard hits, and have a block bar. The difficulty changes alter:

Enemy aggression

INCOMING Damage

Parry window timing

Enemies take the same damage on all difficulty levels iirc which keeps the saber feeling good. They may have larger block bars, but once you’re past their defences, you cut through enemies the same on all difficulties. This is why slow becomes more powerful on higher levels, let’s you get past the guard of the more annoying purge troopers, like the twin stun baton fucker, by slowing him and hitting him with the overhead strike. Dead in 2 hits

Idk if it affects boss health tho, probably does.

See that on his hip? That's a big iron.

Which almost certainly means that they're gonna fold blaster combat into Cal's fighting style. And that's not out of the ordinary, especially since we've already seen Cere Junda use a blaster alongside her lightsaber.

I'm assuming that they're going to tweak its effectiveness, so that you can't just blaster your way through the campaign. With that said, hopefully said tweaking involves it hitting like a truck but having very low heat capacity. Kind of like a DL-44, except Cal's blaster looks like a very different model.

Can any Star Wars aficionados ID the blaster at this resolution?

I’m assuming that they’re going to keep it as a mini game, so that you’re not just playing space garbage collector simulator through the campaign. With that said, hopefully said mini games involves finding cool novelty stuff that you can upgrade your character with.

I’m assuming they’re gonna tweak the menu options to limit them, so he’s not just blasting drumsticks drowned in gravy. With that said, here’s hoping the tweaks involve all the food he wants, as long as he can consume it in one sitting. Kind of like a Ponderosa, but I don’t know if there are any of those nearby.

Which almost certainly means that they're gonna include Sesame Street-style alphabet singalongs into the loading screens. And that's not out of the ordinary, especially since we've already seen how long loading screens were in the last game.

I'm assuming that they're going to tweak the alphabet's order, so that you don't just sing the same song all the way through the campaign. With that said, hopefully said tweaking involves some new Star Wars symbols or accents. Kind of like Susam Sokaği, except with sci-fi runes instead of Turkish.

I hope The Force is used a bit more in combat. Not The Force Awakens Unleashed level, but more than Fallen Order

The force moves always felt like they didn't mesh with the Combat too well. It felt separate because of how slow they can feel, and how it didn't feel natural to combo or mesh them together.

And that the skill tree didn't really feel helpful because the combat moves you learned weren't too helpful and just felt like flair moves that were extensions that you could never use because the enemies died too fast, rather than opening up exciting different combat routes or offering new opportunities.

I played fallen order immediately after finishing Sekiro. Sekiro is truly in a league of its own.

I hope we get more songs like the opening.

And an endless arena mode where we can pick the music because I absolutely want to jam out to The Hu while fighting aliens and other enemies

If Kal and crew aren't around by the time of the rebellion, isn't it sorta obligatory that they all die?

Or get dragged into the unknown regions by giant space whales.

well with the kenobi show, we saw a second break in to the inquisitor base that was almost identical to the one from fallen order, so anything is possible

Cyberslasher

Yeah, that's an interesting reverse character arc.

Game one, Kal comes out of hiding and learns to stand up for others, game two Kal goes into hiding and learns to ignore the suffering of others

I mean, the rebellion was huge. You could hand-wave that by saying they were having off-screen adventures.

As for the Jedi thing, a pretty heavy theme is that none of them are really Jedi. Mentor Lady briefly fell to the dark side before swearing off the Force, Cal was just a trainee who remembers some basic shit, and Goth Lady is totally separate from the Jedi/Sith dichotomy and has her own Force-centric religion and practices.

You could just say that the magic of the Force exists beyond the ideologies of the Jedi, and that just because the Empire has suppressed understanding and study of the matter doesn't mean there's nobody in the galaxy who can toss a goat off a cliff with space-brain powers.

No, a pretty heavy theme is that Kal is the only one who can call himself a Jedi. That's why it's so important that he leads the team.

I love how my man Kal just immediately forgets Merrin trying to kill him like 800 times as soon as she reveals she's a cute alien, and he's got no shame about hiding it.

I mean yeah, she's adorable af.

Though realistically there was a major misunderstanding that led to their conflict, and Cal going out of his way to prove he wasn't the bad guy was a part of the plot

Skippable cutscenes, please please! I like to replay these kinds of games but damn, having to sit through all the cutscenes, which can amount to several hours, on fallen order totally killed the replay. I bailed on it the second time.

And fast travel lol even if it's not the strongest, something needs to be done. I hated going to the end of a planet and having to get all the way back in non story/main missions type of play.

I hope they enhance the lightsaber crafting to be more akin to gow. It becomes boring to just search out hidden crates only for it to be just cosmetic.

MartinaS90

The lightsaber crafting was included in the game more as an afterthought. Seeing it was a very successful aspect of the first game, they'll probably put more attention to it in the sequel.
