Enh, I dunno. Looks way over the top. All I really wanted was to play Batman, man. Would have been happy with something more along the lines of Origin - my fave of them all - or Knight. Probably wait for GOTY and a deep discount.

And why do they call him Mr. Freeze? I mean the guy is a scientist that has at least one doctorate, right? Shouldn't it be Doctor Freeze?

You also realize that fighting for social justice....is a good thing right? It's really odd that this term has been turned into a derogatory one.
Are you fucking nuts, mate? Be for social justice if you are pro-lynching, anarchy and against due process. SJWs gave us the cancel culture we're in. Pick a fight with me and I'll #metoo your ass into the slums.

The game is pretty mediocre. You have to be a fan of the Metroidvania style. I am not. To me it is annoying that you run around the themepark levels (that do not feel like a real world at all) while not being able to access all areas yet due to a lack of abilities. Sometimes it is outright silly. There is a treasure box in shallow water and you can not get to it yet because you don't have the rebreather yet. Bullshit. Cal could have easily dived towards it but no you can't because the game forbids diving until you pick up the rebreather.
The backtracking and thus recycling of locations is unreal. This is related to the above, of course. They stretch game time by making you play the levels multiple times with different skill sets. Yawn. It is also annoying that you can not fast travel (at least between save/meditation points).
... talking of which... the save points are atrocious. Much too far apart sometimes and it is super-annoying when you have a boss fight and need to run the same distance over and over and over... like the second the Second Sister boss fight where you had to run down the corridor and ride down the elevator again and again and again. Why did they not have a respawn point at the base of the elevator? Fuck that shit.
Finally, the characters... yawn @ Disney family friendly Star Wars crap. Cal is a certified tard, the pilot Greez is literally a muppet, Cere is SJW material and the "bad" guys (and girls) are boring as fuck.
What I like about the game is the exploration of the levels, the puzzles and the story progression but on a whole it is utterly forgettable. It is a fast food Star Wars game to be finished and quickly forgotten.
I'm sure that the older Jedi Knight games have not aged well (especially the Dark Forces games which did not even have full mouse support) but this JFO shit is hardly "the best Star Wars game ever made". I liked the old games a whole lot more than this trite garbage at the time they were released.
If they ever make a sequel: Get rid of the Metroidvania structure and the insane backtracking and level recycling, make it a more adult game content-wise (characters etc. and let's write actual dialogue instead of this burpfest) and have the decency to put in a 'save anywhere' feature or at the very least checkpoints that humans with an actual brain came up with. kthx.

Boring tedious metroid style slog. Explore zone to find a door you can't open. Come back 2 hours later with new skill. Find door, open door. Discover new door ,YOU CANT OPEN. Every single door is "locked from the other side".. Try to find way to open door while being bitten by beetles....Why doesn't the droid show you the way to go? This game would be much better if the droid acted as a guide.

On the other hand, as Cutter points out, it's not like if you go to the hospital and need blood that you are going to get it for free.

How are you people criticizing him for a passion project to celebrate the 25th anniversary of one of the most significant games ever made? Something wrong with you all.
