A sensitive exploration of trauma and mental health

This game is so smooth. The combat is a great mix of quick and snappy, and smooth and fluid. Story-wise, this is the best piece of Star Wars media I have consumed. I first played it at a time when I was processing a good deal of personal trauma, and this game genuinely helped a lot, providing a positive role model of forgiving yourself and others, and becoming your true self in spite of that trauma (in the case of the main character, Cal, his Jedi master was killed and he blames himself).

The last time I played a Star Wars RPG type of game was Star Wars The Force Unleashed II on Xbox 360 and I had a really fun time with that game. I played it three times lol it was that good I love Starkiller. The next Star Wars game would be Star Wars Battlefront II, I also had a blast playing this game I love Iden Versio, battlefront II is an awesome game and I play it often with my brother. Then Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order got a discount on the PS Store, Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is hands down my favourite Star Wars game of all time. Sure you can tell I haven't played many other star wars games. But this game was just phenomenal I've NEVER HAD THIS MUCH FUN BEFORE. I won't go into too much detail but the world-building, music, gameplay, action, story, plot twists, development of character, dialogues, customizitions (building our own saber was peak fiction I love that moment with BD-1 so much) and cinematic scenes. Cameron Monaghan did a phenomenal job as Cal Kestis you can tell that he put a lot of effort into the character and truly brought him to life. Cal Kestis development of character throughout the game, well journey was amazing to witness and play through. The characters Cere, BD-1, Jaro, Greez, Trilla and many more played key roles in the story they were awesome. Traveling to different planet's exploring fighting different monsters, troopers ( with their funny dialogue) agh it was peak. The final boss fight with Trilla was awesome but I died 12 times it was really difficult but fun lol. If had an issue which bugged me throughout the game it would be trying to get back to the mantis using the holocron man that was tough. Other than that I've got no complaints this game is a masterpiece in my opinion and I loved it from start to finish, I'm definitely going to play it again.
