Fun Game whether you are a fan of Star Wars or just want to try VR/AR
Star Wars: Jedi Challenge review.
-No cords to watch out for.
-Adjustable head straps; can adjust before or after putting the headset on.
-Adjustable case that fits my phone perfectly and keeps it in place during head movement.
-The Rubber Dome of the light source keeps you from breaking it if you accidentally step on it.
-The lightsaber is well designed, and the rubber grips integrated into the look. You can comfortably hold it with one or two hands.
Eye strain after a few hours of gameplay. Would have loved to keep going but needed to take a break.
There are no options to purchase a Star Wars: Jedi Challenge Game package with different styles of lightsabers.
First, about the Game.
The game contains 3 modes of play.
- Holochess (Turn-based Board game with creatures and hit-points)
- Strategy (Defender style gameplay where you place Structures and command troops)
Each Mode of play has at least 3 levels of play (At least in the first three worlds I played so far).
Cool in-game Galaxy type interface where you click on different worlds to access the 3 Different Game modes.
You need to complete all Trials of combats to move on to the next world (but do not need to complete the Holochess or strategy game to unlock a new world)
Each time you complete some levels, you also Gain new abilities (Combat), Creatures (Holochess), upgrade/unlock troops/Structures (Strategy). I find that games where you earn new abilities based on merit, add more dimensions of play; giving you more options on how you want to play, and gives you a higher level of accomplishment when you win.
I found the combat simulation game a lot of fun and challenging. It starts out with defending yourself against some droids using your skills with a lightsaber, reflecting laser fire, and striking them down when they wander into range. The force feedback (vibrations) of the lightsaber is timed to really make you feel like you hit something, and you can take them out piece by piece. Later levels add higher level droids (including shielded ones), Stormtroopers, Snipers, etc (note, I have only reached world 2 before writing this review). Here is a hintDont just block the laser fire, hit it back at the shooter.
There are also navigation buttons on the headgear.
-The first button takes you to the settings screen where you can easily check your progress or take a shortcut to your favorite (completed) fight. I noticed on this screen, there seem to be ADDITIONAL trials of combat stages (Not yet unlocked for me , but I will get there). There also seems to be different colors you can unlock for the lightsaber.
There is also a settings menu which allows you to control the phones volume and enabling/disabling the 3D sound option (for headphones).
-The second button is a select button. Instead of pressing the button on the lightsaber, you can move your head to have the in-game cursor line up with an option and press this button.
-The third button is a Back button. Allowing you to quickly back out of menus.
The Equipment came well packed and labeled. The Package contained iPhone connector (but I have a Motorola Z2 Play), UBS-C cables (Works Great with my Motorola Z2 Play), and Micro USB cables, to connect any type of phone to the headset. There was also a bag to hold the equipment because you will never be able to remember how it came in the box to put it back, and it keeps everything together. Everything came already charged enough to play without getting low battery warning messages.
Setup was pretty easy with lots of stickers and instructions. Once you download the game app and launch it; the game guides you through the phone setup and pairing it with the lightsaber and inserting the phone into the headgear.
Overall, GREAT GAME WITH HOURS if not Days of gameplay. Well worth the price and Very entertaining. Its like immersing yourself in the role of a Jedi and controlling the battle seen in a movie.
