    Personally I was going to buy the game at Game Stop, but since I found out it uses Denuvo not going to, and if I were to rate this game i'd give a flat zero because through-out the entire game it uses additional resources it does not need by using Denuvo, and slowing down a persons performance and PC more than needed.





    But this is just me, i'll be waiting if the game goes Free 2 Play in the future on Origin, but until then not worth my money, though I have my eyes on Cyberpunk 2077, think i'll snag me a collectors edition shortly for $200+ at Game Stop DRM free with Multi-Player support said to come <3 love them developers a lot over Bioware :\ except for the Older Jedi Knight Dark Forces II, and Jedi Knight Academy / original KOTR game.






    If Denuvo is slowing down your PC perhaps its time to upgrade my friend. I doubt you could even run the game if thats the case. Also does Game Stop sell PC copies anymore?


    I think it has more to do with Denuvo being his own personal crusade. 



    Well, tbf Denuvo is utter trash software. Not sure if it would prevent me from buying a good game though. But in this case, I don't have to think about that. Because the story of this game is so short, I would never pay full price for it anyway. Maybe I'll pick it up some day at a sale.
    25 to 30+ hours is short for a single player game? This is a first

    Sorry to see so many people saying they are going to wait on this game. Just about everywhere. Hoping that doesn't lead to poor sales across the board. That would just prove to EA that people just want what they were giving them before. GaaS games that they can add MTX to forever. Sadly, I feel like this game will prove that to EA. For as many people like to say they want EA to change they aren't willing to show them why they should.

    I think a 25-30 hr SP game is fine.  I have played many games far shorter than that, but I never spent 60 on them.  Game needs to be 40+ at least before I will drop that kind of money on it.  I don't care how good the game is.

    From what I have read and seen on this game, it's a 15-20 hr game so where is the 25-30 hrs I keep seeing mentioned for this game?  Did they release a patch yesterday that added 10+ hrs?

    So far I've found it very Meh! Not exactly hyped to log into it every day, if it wasnt star wars don't think I'd play at all.

    Ah, so I was right.... this is exactly like The Force Unleashed. Sure, the combat may be different, but the story is similar and the length of the game is about the same. Yep, not worth it, just another over hyped POS.



    I found the force unleashed more fun TBH.

    Is the game difficult and does it offer difficulty settings?



    I think this maybe the main issue I'm having, just don't find the combat that enjoyable, I want to cos lightsabres but maybe just not for me.

    Most of their bad rep came from how they chose to monetize their games.  Not the games themselves, imo theyve delivered quality games at least from the ones ive played.

    I'm confused. This review puts the campaign at 15 hours. I've seen other reviews putting it as low as 10. But the chosen number from the "it's not too short" crowd seems to be 25-30 (I'm surprised it's not up to 30-35 now that we're on page 4 of this thread :) )

    Now someone's got to be exaggerating. Who to believe? The reviewers or the peanut gallery?

    Some reviews I've seen put it at 25.

    This site indicates "24 1/2" if you are a completionist. Or 13 just for the main story.

    I didn't realize there were this many completionists here who regularly use the extreme high end as the number they always talk about when they talk about a game's length. I'll have to start referring to Skyrim as a 220 hour game from now on in these forums and won't complain when TES 6 sells for $450 :)

    I wasn't going to play this game, but I saw it was available on origin premier so I've been playing and it and have absolutely LOVED it. People will always complain and drag a game through the dirt because it's published by EA, and it's the simple popular bandwagon thing to do instead of judging a game on it's merits, and the work the studio who actually developed it put into it. If you really actually want the practices of a company to change, then you also have to support the things that are done right. If there is money to be made in launching a complete, high quality single player game with no MTX or DLC, then they will do more of that. But if all you do is drag it and dismiss it because it's EA and don't even give it a fair chance, then what incentive do they have to bother making the games you actually want them to make?

    I really honestly believe people should try this game, it's absolutely worth it. I've loved the story, I've loved the maps, characters, etc..

    Point taken, but the rebuttal would be "i didnt know that there were so many ppl rushing to the end of the game".

    The game gives you lots of opportunities to explore the world, take advantage and dont try to just finish the story.

    Actually I am a completionist myself. I just never thought to use MY number as the number when someone asks me how long a game is.

    I milk the games I love for all they're worth and in RPGs with a lot of build choices, I replay the crap out of them with different builds. If I like a game I want to play it for weeks and I'm always kind of bummed out when I get to the end.

    Well, as I said, I've seen some reviews that said 25 hours. They didn't break it down bit by bit.

    In any case, it depends on what this game is. If it is a role-playing game then that is very short. If it's a "shooter" then it falls in the ballpark. They bill it as an "action-adventure game" so if one buys that then it "falls in the ballpark."

    Additionally, as I've "just" started it, they need to put in place some health and safety protocols as that work space is WAYYYYY too dangerous. :#

    The definitely is 9 out 10. The cast of characters are likable to lovable. The story is really done well. ( someone commented they said bad story and gave it a 9). Typical read what you want to see type person. They said great story but they weren’t happy with the way it ended. Also if you bang through it it’s still 15-18 hours. That’s right on par with 96% single players games. Uncharted, Last of us God of war and so on. As far as the back tracking as you explore you find new areas and Force powers, these will be used to get shortcuts. There’s no cheese matic 5000 back tracking here. The set actually drives you to explore every inch and find all the secrets. I love people reviewing a game they yet to play.

    This is a really good game.  All the arguments I've read about the game not being good or having issues really didn't hold now that I have played it a bit.  Glad I actually played it rather than listening to the negativity on here.  As usual some people just want to find the bad no matter what.  For the record I am 20+ hours into the game.  I figure I have a few hours left at the very least and possibly as many as 10-15.

    There is incentive to explore. The worlds feel more like Destiny 2 than say Skyrim. Planets can be explored outside the storyline. My son found a lightsaber upgrade to transform it from single to dual blade. He also found a droid upgrade that allows for an additional stim heal.

    The main story unlocks skills but you can upgrade skills you do have outside the main objective. There are a ton of light saber customizations to unlock as well. That could provide a lot of extra time, at least 10 hours maybe a lot more.

    Fallen Order still feels like a single playthrough game and I'm less interested in purchasing those kinds of games outright than as part of a larger library through a service.

    It is very much like Dark Souls in the combat. But it does offer difficulty settings so you can tune it up or down to make things easier or harder depending on how you like to play. Story mode is so easy that you are very unlikely to die... like ever die when fighting unless you just stand still.



    BS.....The first boss kills you in 2 hits on the hardest level. You hit him once or 2x at a time and are constantly dodging.

    Enjoyed it, then the ending was poop. But really I just want a remake of kotor and kotor2. Maybe single player version of swtor class story lines lol

    Also the incentive to explore, the cosmetic ones  were disappointing especially outfits.  Lightsaber ones were cool. I feel like they could've incorporated or made more use of that nightsister. The game was enjoyable especially the puzzles. Using combinations of force powers to solve. Combat was okay, just okay.

    It really depends upon how you play. There are a lot of people that just blow through and don't find everything and do everything. On there are others that like to take time to look around and explore and appreciate the art of the game. I am only about 9 or so hours in and play somewhere in the middle both taking time at times and moving on at others. I expect I will play it somewhere on the order of 30 to 40 hours. Just remember that each person's mileage with vary.

    The Game is really worth it, i only played for an hour (casual player) and the start is really amazing. For me that hour alone was worth the money. And i can't buy a game of 60 euro's every month. Well, of course it's your own choice if you buy it or not.

    Well, if it really is 25/30 hours, it's not really short.
    IMO single players game should be 40hours or 40+ if you are a completionist. 

    Also seems we are getting conflicting reports on the time it takes to complete this, I get the feeling 25/30hrs is people being very very generous.

    A question if I may? Can I subscribe monthly to Origin Premium? Or is it only an annual deal?
