How Good Is It? Star Wars Jedi: Survivor

Long live the Jedi.

Few fanbases are more challenging to please than the Star Wars crowd. So, when fans saw the rave reviews for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, copies of the game flew off the shelves. Both critics and fans fell in love with the souls-like gameplay and enthralling story that Jedi Fallen Order offered. Ten million copies, and three and half years later, Cal Kestus and BD-1 are back for a sequel. Can Jedi: Survivor live up to the original, or does this title fall to the dark side?

According to critics, Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a worthy follow-up to the 2019 title. Jedi Survivor has a Mighty rating on OpenCritic, with a Top Critic Average of 86 and 89% of reviewers recommending it for purchase. This score puts Cal Kestus and his motley crew in the 2023 Hall of Fame on the review aggregate site.

The critical consensus states that Star Wars Jedi: Survivor captures its audience with improved gameplay, expanded customization, stunning graphics, and an enthralling narrative. Everything the first game did, this one does better. Many reviewers call it the best Star Wars title in years, with most of the lower reviews coming from those who played the PC port.

The PC version of Jedi Survivor runs poorly upon release, with a litany of bugs, glitches, and technical problems. While EA plans on releasing a series of patches for the PC version, if you have the option, we recommend picking this title up on Xbox or PlayStation.
