That's correct.

Only, it didn't.
I mean, I picked up at the same place, but a lot of the progress I made and secrets are found were undone.

Ok, it may just be that I'm getting older and suckier at gaming, but I'm not understanding all the praise for the combat in this. I'm around a dozen hours in or a little more, and so many of the fights feel like a roll of the dice to me. As in, sometimes I feel like my character is doing exactly what I intend during a fight and other times it just kind of feels like button mashing. I'm still enjoying it enough that I'll keep playing and probably finish it before starting TotK, but I really do feel like I'm fighting the controls a fair amount.

Once you start an animation for fighting, like a swing, you can't cancel it. That's different from most games and can lead to frustration. It's really about timing your blocks and your attacks.

Yeah, I had the exact same thought when I finished it. When I got to the final planet, I was thinking, 'huh, I wonder where the story's going to go after this?' Then it very quickly became apparent the answer was 'nowhere.' I don't mind a short game, but the pacing of the story felt weird to me, like it just sort of ended.

I ended up dropping the difficulty down one level from the default. That didn't really solve my feelings of combat sometimes being tightly controlled and other times feeling janky, but it at least stopped me from dying every time it felt janky. I'm pretty sure that's the first time I've ever decreased the difficulty of a game below the default level.

There were a fair number of bugs in my playthrough, including a handful of crashes and instances where Cal wouldn't interact with something that he was supposed to be able to interact with.

I'll probably play a bit more to collect items, but really just as an excuse to run around and use force powers and see if they make things more fun, as I couldn't care less about finding a handlebar moustache for Cal or slightly different combination of colors to paint BD-1. A review I had read said to hang onto skill points as Cal acquires some mid-to-late game force powers that would be worth sinking them into. I ended up beating the game with like 25 points stored up because I kept expecting something to become available.

All in all, it certainly wasn't a bad game, but it felt like a step down from the original and was a mild disappointment.

Just wrapped this up... a very good game. Much better than the first one, IMO. I didn't come close to 100% and about the only thing I wish I had done was track down all the bounties --- but I've no interest in that now.

I will say this, the bad guy at the end... his motivation is fucking stupid and his rationale for his behavior is beyond dumb. I really like Cal though. Here's to hoping they could somehow incorporate him into a live action series or the future movies. I know the timelines are off but there are now time portals in cannon, so who knows.

Quick edit: Riding the speeder bike was really cool. It felt fast and super responsive. Kudos to the devs for pulling something off that could have been extremely frustrating.

Yea I beat it the other day. I liked it for most part despite the utter god damn mess of a game it is, still runs like shit really considering my hardware.

I think Iím about to go to the last planet but my desire to play this game is nil right now. Maybe Tears of the Kingdom has corrupted me.

I'm barely starting on the second planet. Feels like I've been playing forever.

Just finished the story. Loved it all the way through and no way this doesn't end up near the top of my game of the year list. Immediately going to hop back in and finish some side stuff and collectibles.

Just collected all the bounties and that has a really good wrap-up that I would recommend for people who beat the game and didn't get them all.

Finally beat the story mode. That was fun, but seemed much longer than it was. No way I have the patience to go back and claim bounties and finish the rumor side missions. Good thing I GameFly'd it.

I think I’ll play this next. I was going to play Horizon: Forbidden West, but I forgot about this. Till now.

You can fast travel pretty much everywhere and the bounties and rumors show you exactly where they are. Didn't take me more than a couple hours to go around and do clean up and finish the ones I missed.

I know there is the holomap, but is there another way to track or know where to go next? I’m only in the beginning on the Rooftops. Sometimes I am totally lost as to where to go and that holomap is for shit, imo. I thought it said R1 was a visual but all I do when I hit R1 is force push, I believe.

Yeah there have been a few instances where i didn't know what to do or where to go. Had to use YouTube help guides for those. Most of the time, using the holomap with green visual indicators helped me find my way.

Man, that first mini boss, or whatever, the Ninth Sister was a bitch. She was one tough mofo. And, so early on. They really took the platforming up a notch from Fallen Order. Except for not clear indicator, sometimes, of where you need to go, this is another rollicking adventure that takes FO and exceedes it in most ways.
