OverviewOverview

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a fighting-adventure game set five years after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and 14 years before Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. Young Jedi Padawan Cal Kestis is hunted through the galaxy by the Galactic Empire, whilst trying to complete his Jedi training and restore the now wiped out Jedi Order.

You navigate different worlds, encountering different enemies and taking on a range of missions. It plays similarly to the Batman Arkham games, with hard-hitting tactical combat being matched with traversal. Like that game, Fallen Order is an open rather than open-world game, where you unlock more areas to explore as you progress.

The fighting is largely tactical lightsaber fights. Enemies include imperial soldiers, indigenous animals and sci-fi creatures. You improve your fighting abilities as the stories progress and work through a detailed skill tree.

It's a hard game, although not as unforgiving as Dark Souls, but there are difficulty settings that you can use to make the experience more manageable.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Content Rating

Rated PEGI 16 with sustained depictions of violence towards human characters and strong violence. Violence consists of frequent lightsabre battles between your player and members of the Empire forces. While there are no blood or visible wounds shown, responses to the violence are realistic but not gross, even when a fantasy character has a hand cut off. When defeated, enemies fall to the ground and remain there for a short while, enough to pile up in busy areas.

Skill Rating

12-18 year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content.

AccessibilityAccessibility

Customize game difficulty by adjusting enemies and combat targeting. Auto-targeting also helps. You can opt to skip sections where you rapidly press buttons to advance. You can disable the need to hold a button to climb. Holding a button to confirm/interact with something can be changed to a button press. During puzzle segments, you can ask for hints.

There's a game map you can access at any time. It shows you newly discovered areas, and marks those you can't pass through yet in red. These then change to green once you have the power-up to get through.
