After starting this last night, I agree that it feels very inspired by Uncharted in regards to its traversal and set pieces. I'd also say it has similarities to FromSoftware games too, such as the resting at "campfires" to restore your health and consumables while also respawning enemies, and combat involving dodges and parries. I was not expecting the game to be as open as it is either; I thought it was just going to be this linear action-adventure game.

I've only done the opening and Bogano so far, and despite it having a lot of similarities to other games I've played I'm still really enjoying it. BD-1 is my favourite character and I can see it staying that way, and if anything happens to it I'd use dark force powers to exact my revenge if I had to. Whistle

Yeah I actually thought the combat would be more Nemesis-style (i.e. Batman Arkham series, Mordor, Spiderman, etc). It's interesting how they make the combat work within all the realms of the Star Wars lore.

It's looking pretty good so far. Wondering if it performs better on other higher-powered platforms. We're running this on a base PS4 and it's been having a lot of pop-ins and environmental loading issues. It also semi-crashed at some point.

That crash was so weird. The game didn't actually crash, but the sound cut out and an error screen appeared as if the game had crashed, but instead it seems just the audio died for a moment. The worst thing for me performance wise though is the loading. Dying really only resets your character and respawns enemies, yet for some reason can take a long time to load even if you died right by the respawn point. Also, using any of the PS4 UI overlayed on the game by holding the PS button is so slow that I can never tell if my inputs are being registered or not.

So I'm not a STAR WARS fan at all. I mean, I've watched a few of the movies here and there. I've even played a few of the games on 360. But this game looked intriguing when it first came out and it's been on my to buy list for awhile but haven't pulled the trigger.

My question (for anyone who would like to answer) is the game any good for someone who's not a big fan of the series? Meaning can I have fun playing something like this with just the games story alone and not being a SW fan?

I'm not a huge SW fan and yeah, I enjoyed this a lot. It makes rare references to content outside of itself, and the ones it does make are staples anyone would know like Yoda and Vader.
