10 Games like Star Wars Jedi: Survivor that will make you one with the Force

The force is strong with these ones.

While flying the Mantis is still a great thing to do, other universes encapsulate the essence of the Star Wars Jedi series. Here are 10 games that will make you one with the force, just like Star Wars Jedi: Survivor did.

Assassin’s Creed series

Third-person action-adventure games would not be the same if not for the Assassin’s Creed franchise. While far from having an impeccable record in its history, the series has several gems both in the first and second eras of Assassins’ Creed. The open-world nature of these games makes exploring a delicacy, sharing this with Jedi Survivor which felt a little less lineal than Fallen Order. I suggest playing Assassins Creed Origins as it is a great balance between the old and new RPG games and it shares some narrative tropes with Cal Kestis’ journey.

Batman: Arkham City

If being a Jedi isn’t enough for you, then how about being the world’s greatest detective, the Dark Knight himself, Batman? Well, if you do pick carrying the mantle of Gotham’s protector, then you are up to play one of the greatest games of all time. In its time, Gotham City was revolutionary thanks to its vibrant open world, incredibly fun side quests, a magnificent battle system, and both Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill’s performances as Joker and Batman, respectively. Its ending broke my heart, and I’m still sad. It’s a great game.

God of War 2018 and God of War Ragnarok

God of War 2018 and God of War Ragnarok are games that stand out due to how they changed the classic God of War formula. You could say that the Jedi series did the same for Star Wars, compiling things that worked in other games and adding the Star Wars magic of yore. Following the adventure of Kratos and Atreus is incredibly entertaining, and since I’m a big fan of Norse mythology, the lore just adds points to the experience. Both God of War and Jedi Survivor feature the same open world and linear progression balance.

Guardians of the Galaxy

While being a more linear game than Jedi Survivor, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a great character-driven story that matches that of Jedi Survivor. Just like Cal Kestis and the Mantis crew, Starlord will also get to know and understand the other Guardians, including a self-discovery journey in the middle. And, well, both games have spaceships and alien species, so that’s that.

Horizon Forbidden West

If we talk about sequels that build upon celebrated first entries to new and iconic series, then Horizon Forbidden West is a great parallel to Jedi Survivor. Following Alloy’s first successful attempt to save the world, she now will visit the Forbidden West, a new area with new tribes, new mechs, and of course, new ways out-of-nowhere twists that will turn things to 11. Well, that sounds like Jedi Survivor to me!

Metroid Prime series

Since both Fallen Order and Jedi Survivor are often described as Metroidvanias, I better include the Metroid part of that genre, right? Well, the Metroid Prime series, while being 3D first-person-shooter games, features the same 3D map, expanding areas depending on unlockable items and skills, and very iconic characters like Samus Aran and Ripley. If you want to know what inspired the Star Wars Jedi series, then you better play at least the first Metroid Prime, which has its own Remaster on the Nintendo Switch.

Rise of the Tomb Raider

The reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise introduced Lara Croft to the new generation of gamers. While the first game is a decent entry in the series, its sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider showed everyone what Lara was able to accomplish. Set in a rather unorthodox setting for the ones accustomed to raiding tombs in heavy tropical forests, this installment in the series features a lot of great additions and a lot of content for the player to enjoy. Just be careful with the bears, those guys are mean.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

Of course, we had to include a Souls game in the mix. After all, both Fallen Order and Jedi Survivor are often described as soulslike games. I mean, meditation points, losing your progression and reacquiring it by killing the enemy that got you, and an impossible early boss? And yes, we are talking about you Oggdo Bogdo. Well, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a great example of that, but its combat mechanics make it have a better flow that will match what you can see in the Star Wars Jedi series. I mean, just look at the picture above!

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Outcast and Academy

Now, I’m a big nostalgia fan, and one of the first couple of games that I had the chance to experience as an already-established fan with access to a PC was both Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. Whether you’d like to play as Kyle Katarn or as a Jedi apprentice who can very well turn to the Dark Side, both games are incredibly fun and feature compelling stories. They are completely linear and episodical, but if you love Star Wars Legends lore, then these two Jedi Knight games are a must.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

After what happened with Battlefront 2, you’ve got to understand that any attempt at developing and releasing a Star Wars game was regarded as something extremely risky. The amount of backlash that was caused by anti-consumer practices and overall greediness on behalf of executives made Star Wars and video games seem like water and oil. Then Respawn came along and brought us a Soulslike Metroidvania adventure game with lightsabers and characters we could relate to and, well, history was made. If you haven’t played the first game in the franchise or you need to refresh some key narrative points, going back to Fallen Order will always feel like going home.
