NFT: Best Stars Wars Game now on any platform

Essex : 1/13/2021 9:52 am
Is it fallen order? My 10 year old wants a Star Wars game and just want to get him a good one.
Fallen Order is excellent

if you like an RPG style game. I haven't played it, but Squadrons is supposed to be excellent if you want a piloting game.
Fallen Order is good  
Eli Wilson : 1/13/2021 9:57 am : link
as is Squadrons - assuming he likes flying games.
I loved

fallen order, but it does seem complex/challenging for a 10 year old potentially.

Childhood x-wing pilot dream come true. I outgrew Starwars when I was like 12 (46 y/o currently). But when I tried Squadrons in VR I had childhhood Return of the Jedi 83 flashbacks of waves of tie fighters coming at me.
Given the age...  
iMatt : 1/13/2021 10:09 am : link may be hearing "Dad, can you look up how to..." more than a few times with some of Fallen Order's puzzles and maps. My oldest is 9, and I could see him struggling with it.

Squadrons is fun, but it can get a little repetitive after a while. It's good if you just want to blow up spaceships for 30-45 minutes per sitting.

I think 10yr-old me would prefer Squadrons, but that's just me. I grew up on the originals, and just hearing the X-Wing engines and blasters puts a smile on my face.

My gaming tastes are ancient so I'm the wrong one to ask, but I'm really enjoying the Star Wars Pinball game for the Switch. There's lots of different tables reflecting all aspects of the series. It's cheaper than the average game too. I'm sure this is not what you're looking for but it is enjoyable :)
Thinks it is when my son was 10

He would run circles around me.....with all video games.

Wouldn't sell your son short
Last month I bought a Star Wars package for PC on Steam for my 10 yo  
Adam G in MD : 1/13/2021 10:20 am : link
It included: Fallen Order, Squadrons and Battlefront II.
My son is quite proficient in all of them, so the games are all perfect for the age. He (and I) play Battlefront II the most. Very good campaign and excellent multiplayer battles. We found the Battlefront II just more fun than the other two.
I absolutely love The Force Unleashed

It's an older game, PS3/XBox 360. However, it is backward compatible on XBox, and it is available in Playstation Now.
My 10 year old

can't get enough of Battlefront II. He loves it. I am pretty horrible at it, but it is very well done.
Fallen Order was Excellent  
HMunster : 1/13/2021 10:54 am : link
It's a little challenging, but fun. My 13 yo had a blast with it too.

Also, look for the LEGO Skywalker Saga coming out this summer.
antdog24 : 1/13/2021 11:20 am : link
gets a bad rap but its a pretty good game. My 11 year old likes that game the best of all the star wars games available right now. He prefers it over Battlefront II.
Thanks for all the recs  
Essex : 1/13/2021 11:28 am : link
I really appreciate everyone who took the time to answer. do you know if I buy Fallen Order digitally will it be backwards compatible for the PS5?
I haven't played Squadrons yet  
Matt M. : 1/13/2021 1:01 pm : link
but my 11 year old loves it. Fallen Order was excellent, but may be a bit tough. My 11 year old, 16 year old and I all loved it.

I also enjoyed the campaign mode of Battlefront II

I believe Fallen Order can be played on a PS5 (assuming you can find one) via backwards compatibility. They just released an update that optimizes performance for the PS5 too.

just announced an open world Star Wars game in production along with Massive (they did the Division games).

Should be interesting to follow the progress.
