Whether you’ve beaten Star Wars Jedi: Survivor or you won’t get to it for a while, consider trying out one of these similar games.
There have been a lot of games released for the Star Wars franchise. These games have come in many shapes and forms and spanned across almost every genre that players can name. From old-school RPGs to First-Person Shooters, Star Wars has shown it’s not afraid to experiment to find which games can really show off what the franchise has to offer.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor improves upon a lot of elements from its previous title, Fallen Order, as well as takes a lot of elements established by other games in the genre. Jedi Survivor polishes all of these combined features for a fantastic gameplay experience that critics have praised across the board.
10 Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy
Released back in 2003 by developers Raven Software, Jedi Academy really put players into the shoes of what it would feel like to be learning what it would be like to be a Jedi. The game follows a padawan named Jaden Korr, with the player able to choose what gender and race the character would have.
The player would then take on missions for the Jedi and learn more about their powers. The potential for a sequel, remake, or even series based on the concept alone is a truly wasted opportunity.
9 Star Wars: The Force Unleashed
Just like Jedi Academy, this game gives the feel that you are a mighty force-sensitive individual, still growing and becoming even more powerful. Instead of being a Jedi this time around, you are the apprentice to Darth Vader, allowing for much more morally questionable choices to be made and giving players more freedom to explore the type of character they wish to play.
This game did well enough to warrant it a sequel, but the first gives a narrative experience that the second game — despite superior gameplay — simply did not recapture.
8 Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
While Star Wars Jedi: Survivor improves a lot over Fallen Order, being its direct sequel and successor and all, it accomplishes this so well — and to such a degree — that the two actually feel like different experiences.
Players who play Jedi Survivor first will still get a lot out of playing Fallen Order afterward. This is because you can play Fallen Order and have it feel more like a stand-alone prequel, with plenty of enjoyment still to be had even after playing through Jedi Survivor.
7 Shadow Of The Tomb Raider
Shadow of the Tomb Raider easily matches Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s exploration, navigation, and traversal. It has very well-crafted level designs and utterly gorgeous aesthetics, and the combat will engage players nearly as much as Jedi Survivor.
While having the Star Wars setting is a big pro for Jedi Survivor, Shadow Of The Tomb Raider’s world-building is very in-depth and interesting as well. The combat might not involve lightsaber duels and powerful force abilities, but it is plenty challenging and engaging as-is.
6 Batman: Arkham Knight
Batman: Arkham Knight is right up the alley of anyone that enjoys Jedi Survivor. Arkham Knight brings so many gadgets and abilities to make for an ever-growing way to play the game in different ways, both in and out of combat. The game features a large rogues’ gallery of famous Batman villains to check off your list as you throw them behind bars.
The Ability to cruise through Gotham in the Batmobile, then launch yourself straight out of it, glide through the air as you make a corner, then grapple and quickly pull yourself to a ledge, is just one of the many things you will find yourself loving about this game.
5 Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty
Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty comes from the incredible development studio of Team Ninja, known for the long-running Ninja Gaiden and Nioh games. Team Ninja are no strangers to Hack and Slash titles and have a great track record for making truly amazing high-octane action games.
Both Wo Long and Jedi Survivor offer captivating worlds to get immersed in, and players can really take in all the little things and atmospheric elements. Wo Long offers lots of weapons and styles to experiment with to find which style best suits players.
4 Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
Sekiro feels like a Star Wars game with a feudal Japanese aesthetic. With lots of guiding forces, tapping into powers beyond the reach of normal beings, and lots of intense sword fighting, there is a great adventure for any player picking up this title. It also shares — with some exceptions — the same parry/posture system.
The game comes from none other than FromSoftware, the team that pioneered the Soulslike breed of games. Souslike games have become a popular choice for AAA and Indie developers alike. They are constantly looking into new world settings, so a mystic space odyssey that feels even more like Star Wars might be on the horizon one day.
3 Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy
Besides its great visuals, gameplay, and direction, another captivating element of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is its storytelling and cutscenes. A game that will give players the same engagement is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
This game comes from developers Eidos-Montreal and is a cinematic coup for the action-adventure game genre. This game was expected to have coop elements similar to Gotham Knights, but instead, it is completely a single-player experience with you covering the role of team leader, rather than controlling a group of different characters.
2 Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
No team was better suited to handle this ambitious project better than Platinum Games, the team behind Vanquished, Bayonetta, and Nier: Automata. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is all about slicing objects and enemies in the same way lightsabers are portrayed to do in the Star Wars films.
Not only that, they have done so better than any game set in the Star Wars universe has been able to pull off. Any lightsaber enthusiast will be awe-struck by how satisfying the cutting mechanics work in this game. It truly is a wondrous experience.
1 Horizon Forbidden West
This series of games started with Horizon Zero Dawn and quickly became one of the most beloved PlayStation titles in recent years. Crafted by the obscenely talented developers at Guerrilla Games, they set out with their most ambitious goals in mind for Horizon Forbidden West, and they absolutely nailed it.
The games are set in a world overrun by machines that resemble all manner of beasts. From giant birds to dinosaurs, they have taken on the appearances of many dangerous creatures to make the player’s journey both incredibly fun and incredibly dangerous. A visual spectacle combined with fantastic world building and engaging combat, Horizon Forbidden West is a must-play.
