So, it may surprise you to learn that there is one thing about Jedi: Fallen Order that I do like and that’s the gradual unlock of powers and skills.

Considering how awkward the default controls are, this is a really good decision on Respawns part.

What this means is that the player can get used to one thing at a time and train muscle memory accordingly. It doesn’t really help all the way, I often press the “wrong” buttons, but at least I know what powers I intend to use while doing so.

The story is still annoying, the stereotypes surrounding women are plentiful, I dislike the movement puzzle gameplay and having camera control yanked away from me, but at least the player journey is well balanced. Small blessings and all.
