Im trying so hard to play this game because i love it. The boss fights are just painful. Im no elite player by any means, but Ive played through all the souls borne games. The second boss raven lady is just destroying me. Ive even tried farming my way to out level her, but its just no use...
I can't consider Rogue One as a true Star Wars film in my head cannon because it's so different from the space epic main films. I also actually like Rogue One a lot for being something different and creating an avenue for other side stories loosely connected to the main films.
My most mediocre has to be attack of the clones. It's not even close to being as disappointing as Episode One (the wound was already open) and it's not quite as important as Revenge of the Sith (which I don't care for, but at least feels like it's trying harder). My ranking (mediocre to me is worse than being bad. Bad movies can be fun in their own right):
8th is Attack of the Clones, 7th is Phantom Menace, 6th is Revenge of the Sith, 5th is A New Hope, 4th is Rogue One, 3rd is The Force Awakens, 2nd is Return of the Jedi, and the number 1 is Empire Strikes Back.
For me, I've stopped focusing on where I'm dropping in. I don't bother trying to get to a specific house or anything. I just dive towards the ground as fast as I can. Its risky, but I find that just landing in the middle of nowhere, away from all the structures and picking your way through those little out house looking buildings can lead to long runs.
I also try to keep my way point at the center of the circle. I don't necessarily go straight for it, but it keeps me headed in directions so that I don't get caught outside in the blue.
Lastly, I stopped worrying about red zones. Sure you might get hit, but running straight through and storming into buildings is a good way to get kills on people who are waiting out the bombs. Just keep your cross hairs trained low and do a quick lean around corners to see if someone takes a pot shot.
So far playing it has been fine. It's fun to shoot, explore, and jump jet around. The story though... could either really get interesting or completely flounder. So far I feel like everything past the prologue has been massive exposition dumps between characters who seem slightly annoyed with each other even though I'm trying to be a nice guy to everyone. Be interested to see the reviews in the am.
My strategy was dashing all the time. I'd hop in and get a few quick attacks with mid spear and then back off and dance around him. Also it helps to go in with a charged guardian so that you can break the ball and chains from him quick. His second phase is much easier as he telegraphs everything
