It took me a while to finally get around to trying this game out, but I finally tackled it during my Xbox Gamepass trial period in early 2022! I found this game to be a lot of fun and a really cool, original adventure into the world of Star Wars. One of the biggest complaints I had about the game, and probably the only complain is that the game starts off way too hard. I think a challenge is a good thing, but I felt like the difficulty balancing was really off. I had to switch the difficulty down to the lowest setting a few hours into the game just because I felt like a complete jabroni playing through the game, dying all over the place. I can see where they got a lot of inspiration from the Dark Souls franchise while creating this game in a lot of things, but I just don’t think it works too well in a Star Wars setting. Once I started getting upgrades and beefing Cal up a bit more, I felt like I could have handled the higher difficulty more reasonably, but that was after a handful of hours into the game.
The “FMV” videos and songs were pretty cool and catchy for the tech of the Sega CD here, and this is the first appearance of Amy Rose in the Sonic franchise as well, so we’ve got that going here. This game was a fun little adventure, right up there with the original two games in…
We play through the original Tekken via the PlayStation 3, unlocking every main character’s ending. I really enjoyed knowing that Kazuya yeets Heihachi off the mountain and it picks right back up for Tekken 2. Really cool, I think my favorite character ending up being Michelle for all of this
Out of everything I played during Sonic Week, I thought this game was the most fun, ironically enough. I had never even really heard of this game before this, but I’m glad I had the pleasure of actually trying it out
