    Played a couple of hours, visuals are great, performance is great (all epic at 1080p/60fps), found the linear/platformy type gameplay a bit jarring after enjoying the freedom and open world of RDR2 so doubt I'll play it any more, at least for now, was free with Origin Premier so that's a bonus :)

    I pay £48.62 (3,999 Russian Roubles*) for 12 months (so £4.05 a month) for Origin Premier primarily for Fifa so any other games that come with it I consider a free bonus :)

    yea combat looks fun, story is either good to meh, the platforming looks overdone to a silly degree, and one thing kept coming up in reviews is the game world feels "disjointed", if your not a platform fan, i am not, you might want to skip this. but the levels themselves look like someone took a planet force crushed it therw it in a blender and then created levels out of it.

    gonna wait on more review and probably a sale since i not sold the platforming myself.

    My system was built in June 2013 (so has lasted me well). It has 16 GB of 1,600 MHz DDR3 memory.

    I've found out what causes the bandwidth bottleneck with sli... it's the postprocessing setting... going from epic to medium gives a 30% (!!!) gpu usage reduction / fps increase.

    I'd like to know what postprocessing does in this game, as it varies alot from game to game, and i can't quite tell the difference tbh.

    Medium postprocessing

    Still can't tell what postprocessing does, aside of giving a slight blur...

    But tested single gpu with postprocessing medium vs epic, and sli the same, without any fps caps (i usually cap fps at 58 for g-sync)

    Single gpu medium PP

    Single gpu epic PP

    Sli medium PP

    So postprocessing is quite heavy, even on single gpu, but especially on sli. Sli medium postprocessing becomes cpu singlethread performance bottlenecked, so gpu's could actually have pulled a bit higher... but even so 47 vs 80 fps, that's a very decent 70% sli scaling, when using medium postprocessing.

    I'm also not a big fan of platforming. Actually I pretty much hate it and this game has a LOT OF PLATFORMING. Like really a lot... but I still play it. The reason why I don't mind it here is because they implemented instant respawn in front of each(or most of) platforming area and it's also not that frustrating or hard with the slomo ability. And even if you fall, you will be instantly respawned for instant retry.

    Overall I like the story. It's not the best story ever, but it's good enough... and it's a SP SW game :)

    Barring the slow texture and asset streaming problem which will hopefully be patched, this game is the BEST Star Wars game of this generation in my opinion. As a lover of single player games, I have been deeply disappointed that no Star Wars game in recent memory has come close to capturing the atmosphere of the Star Wars Universe and the all important real time lightsaber combat, since the venerable Star Wars Jedi Knight series from almost 20 years ago. Now I'm happy to say that Jedi Fallen Order absolutely nails it in both respects. :cool:

    This game is as enthralling as it is amazing. The levels are absolutely huge and labyrinthine, with lots of challenging platforming and encounters. In fact, the platforming can at times be the most difficult aspect in the game. Personally I think they may have overdone it a bit in that regard, but I have to respect the developer's vision for their game. And what a game it is! The lightsaber combat is just flat out incredible, being easy to learn but difficult to master. Mastering parrying and dodging are absolutely necessary, especially if you want to play on the higher difficulties. Playing with a controller is highly recommended, unless your dexterity with a keyboard is superhuman. :eek:

    Another area where this game excels in is the animation department. The animations are smooth and fluid, which is very important for maintaining suspension of disbelief and make the player feel they are controlling an actual Jedi. Along with the graphics and enormous scale, animation quality is a major factor which distinguishes Jedi Fallen Order from other Star Wars themed titles.

    Graphically, the game is top notch as well. As I mentioned before, the levels are absolutely massive and very detailed with plenty of dynamic lighting and shadows which affect the environment, and the character models (especially the hair) are fantastic. Screenshots don't do the game justice, you have to play it to really see and appreciate it. Performance wise, it runs very fast for the most part, with a bit of hitching and lag every so often. For some reason, the asset streaming algorithm cannot keep up with the game itself. This will likely be fixed, as it seems to affect not just the PC version, but the console versions as well.

    Barring that, this game has hit a home run with me personally. After I first saw that introductory trailer months ago, I knew that Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order would scratch that Jedi Knight 2 Outcast itch that I've had for so long. I hope this game sells well so we see a continuation of the series, and a renewal of the action adventure single player Star Wars game :)

    Oh I want this game ,I watched a few videos and the hitching is off putting but as Carfax said ,looks like hitching may be fixed in a patch.
    The hitching thing in games does bother me at times,so much so I have games that I bought and did not even play because of the hitching.
    Anyway the game just looks awesome and seems to play great.Gott Origin access but guess it is time for Premier again.

    For $20USD you can have reshade Ray Tracing.Glad the dude is making some cash off the presets,I will wait for free version.

    So i decided to get the game.
    Im glad to see to be able to run at 60fps 1080p ultra.
    It also supports HDR and DTS out of the box. it looks and sounds amazing.

    Im not sure, but i think the config files do nothing. they are probably locked somehow. maybe someone can confirm them working or not.

    HDR doesn't seem to work for me, which is a shame as Gears 5 looks amazing with it turned on. still, the game does look incredible at times, the cut scenes are some of the best I've seen. 1440p at high settings, stutters during transitions but otherwise locked to 60. The dynamic resolution scaling doesn't seem to do anything.

    Omg this game sounds like a true sleeperhit, hitting all the right notes and borrowing gameplay elements from the best franchises.

    I really want this but man that €59.99 price tag...! I can't remember the last time I shelled that much money on a game. Can't for the life of me figure out if I should.

    Get Origin Premier, $14.99/month, beat the game unsubscribe.

    EA Respawn definitely delivered on this one. The more I play, the more I love it!

    Has anyone been able to add ambient occlusion at all? Been a lot of Unreal 4 engine games releasing lately and this is the first in awhile that AO is turned off by default and is nowhere to be found in an ini file. AO would really help things look that much better here, IMO.
