DisturbedSwan Posted November 17, 2019 Share Posted November 17, 2019 Here you go lazy bones @Maryokutai. Not hard is it. Quote After playing this for two hours I have to say that while I appreciate the work Digital Foundry is doing they paint a picture that's so far off from reality it makes certain games seem like a mess when they're really not. Yes, there are slowdowns on Xbox when the game is loading assets, yes, there are visuals glitches, yes, the loading times are rather long (but not extremely so). But none of these things have any impact on how you play or enjoy the game. It's a really pretty game on standard Xbox, it runs smoothly 98% of the time and while it does lack some polish it's not even remotely impactful. Digital Foundry is a bit like that teacher who tells you that you should do better at Math and Physics but fails to mention that you're excellent in three languages and at the top of your class in sports. Yes, this game does not run at 1080p with stable 60fps and doesn't look like a first-party-game à la Gears or Uncharted. But who the hell gives a shit. As for the game, after two hours I have to say it'S a nice blend of Metroid Prime and Souls but I like the Metroid stuff way more than the Souls stuff. The stamina bar is barely visible during combat so you usually only remember it exists when it's depleted and getting send back to a save point for trying to tackle an optional boss you shouldn't have yet isn't quite my idea of enjoyment. That said combat is only a third of the package here with exploration and platforming making out the other two and it all comes together nicely. It's also filled with fanservice and the more you know about Star Wars the more you get out of small tidbits here and there. And early spoiler-free example is how you can spot one of those round Separatist droid-control ships on the scrapyard among multiple star destroyers, which is a very cool and very efficient way of tying together the prequel trilogy with the original trilogy. Something, I might add, the movies never really managed to pull off. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
