I'm gonna need to see more as we get closer to release because those videos didn't get me excited at all about the gameplay or controls. Environment wise, it seems like a very closed corridor and linear level design with little opportunity for problem solving and discovery, or the inclusion of multiple success paths. Maybe you guys saw more there.

Also, I pretty much hate any character who reminds me of the shitty Joker character in Gotham...

At first blush, that gameplay doesn’t excite me. Compared to RDR2, the Division 2, and other deep and open world maps, this comes across as uninteresting. Remove the Star Wars element and examine the underlying gameplay, mechanics, environment, combat, etc., and what I’ve seen seems totally unremarkable this far.

I hope I’m ultimately proven wrong but at this point, I’m skeptical.

Dropped today and it's one of the EA Access Premier launch day titles, so I'm downloading it now. That Premier subscription has already paid itself off for thios year.

Reviews look solid. I am anxious to hear how the gameplay is. I can’t even remember the last time I got into a great single player Star Wars game.  Jedi Knight II?

I’ve read mixed reviews: Mashable says it’s pretty good and similar to Dark Souls, but Ars Technica says it’s underwhelmingly safe and ultimately falls flat.
 

I’m unsure what to make of it and whether to buy.

This is a pretty good review and gives some good insight. I'm about 75% through the game, I think, and I've loved it so far. I've never played Dark Souls or Bloodborne or any of those games, and I've been enjoying the game playing on Jedi Master. My only complaint is that jumping to/from ropes or vines, especially after sliding down a hill, is very inconsistent.

One tip in his video is to play on Performance Mode, however I would just keep it at default. It's not gonna run 60fps on any console, and the fps will fluctuate a lot. If you're on a One X or PS4 Pro, it'll stay at a pretty stable 30fps the entire time on default. I'd rather have stable 30 than unstable 40-55.

most definitely. I honestly can't think of any bad language in it, there might be a "damn" in there every once in a while, but not sure. The violence is just Star Wars violence, no blood or anything gruesome. I've already completed it 100% and really enjoyed it.

Good.  Thanks for the review.
