I am really enjoying this game, and I think Iím near the end now, but canít get on with the lightsaber battles. It seems to be mostly running away and blindly trying to get the odd powerful attack in. Theyíre not fun at all.

Agree, the combat is terrible whereas everything else is so well done.

I enjoy the combat against ďnormalĒ enemies, itís just the lightsaber battles. Doesnít help that parrying in them is effectively useless. Thankfully, thereís so few of them.

I finished the story on Sunday night. It plays things very safe, but I really like the characters and thatís enough to get you engaged. Iím now mopping up on the exploration side of things, which is surprisingly fun (despite there being no local fast travel).

Finished this off a few days ago.

Not overly impressed with the game but seeing as CEX are giving me £40 for it, making it effectively a £4.85 rental, I'd say it was good value.

I only tried the first Dark Souls game and was put off by the clunky controls paired with punishing gameplay. Not my idea of fun. While this is in the same vein, it's not quite as punishing and is covered in Star Wars sauce to sweeten the taste.

Played through most of the game on Jedi Night difficulty but switched to story mode after being aggravated by a certain boss on Dathomir.

Loved the music and look of the levels, particularly the opening scene but the character models are shocking and best viewed from a distance.

I didn't warm to our poncho wearing George Weasley protagonist but enjoyed the arcs of all the other characters including the villains.

Lovely to have a new Star Wars single player game and hopefully it's success will lead to more in the near future.

The more I play the more I dislike it
After two planets I was enjoying it. Had hang of comment and nice to have a single player game In Star Wars universe. However the more I play the worse it seems to be.

seems far to padded out. Lots of backtracking for no reason.
It really reminds me of a lot of mid 90s mid budget games. Lots of filler but just stretched out

really annoying in places. I mean it even has bounce pad jumps. I’d not be surprised if there is an escort mission before the end

lve gotten towards the near end. The “bat” boss and after a couple of attempts I’ve quit to home, removed my shortcut and deleted the game. The more I played the worse it got.
I’ve played to completion most of the dark souls games (well what could be called completion I guess) and never faced a boss as annoying as that

It highlighted the clanky controls and for all the things said about combat, ultimately, for. OST part it was hack and slash. That “last” level, with the zombies quick running, just pointless. The game would of been better removing all the sliding / swinging ****, tweaking it’s combat to be more souls like and focus on actually being a Jedi rather than Lara Croft in the 90s

My collectibles are glitched. Got them all but it still shows I'm missing 2 chests and 1 secret

Respawn say they're working on a fix.

I donít remember having any problems with the big bat thing. In fact, I think I defeated it on the first attempt. I notice though that youíre playing it on PC, are you playing it with a keyboard and mouse? Iíve always said it can be the best way to play a game, but some console ports utilise it terribly.

The bat thing was just annoying. I did go back and took the difficult to the lowest of the low to complete the game and it just bored me. Really felt padded and bloated

Ah sorry. Think I got thrown by your comment about deleting the shortcut. I forget you can set up shortcuts on the XB1 dashboard.
