Star Wars Jedi: Survivor Rated “Mostly Negative” On Steam Due To Poor Performance

Fans are already hailing the game as one of the most unoptimized titles in recent times.

Story Highlights

  • Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has received a “mostly negative” review score on Steam because of the lingering performance and optimization issues plaguing the game.
  • The users have pointed out the state of the game even with the powerful 3090 and the new 4000 series GPUs, resulting in unstable 30-50 FPS at best.
  • The game critics who received an early copy of the game were able to highlight the issues in earlier reviews, but the state of the game appears dire after release.
  • Electronic Arts has said that “weeks” of patches will arrive for the title, which will fix the issues that are currently hampering the user experience.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor has joined the list of flawed PC games that came out recently with terrible performance and optimization. The entry was all the hype in the gaming industry but started getting negative reviews soon after launch due to the lingering issues on the PC version. It has garnered the infamous “mostly negative” review score on the Steam page, and the users in the comments have deeply clarified the existing issues.

There are severe frame rate issues and stuttering present in the game, which has dragged down even the highest of rigs in terms of user experience. Players utilizing RTX 3080 and even the new 4000 GPU series have struggled to keep frame rates stable and above 50. As per the user reviews, you will most likely have to enjoy the game at 30 FPS at high settings or lower, sacrificing the aesthetic visual appeal for a smoother experience until fixes arrive.

I’m using a 3090 FE and 5700x and getting a consistent 30 fps in some areas. Other areas give me a mostly consistent 45. This is at 1440p. Lowering the settings and using FSR don’t make a tiny bit of difference. And it goes up to like 19 GB of VRAM,” writes one reviewer.

Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is a VRAM hogger that will run even the best GPUs dry with its hunger, but the troubles do not end even with extremely high-end rigs costing $6000 to $7000, as per professional reviewers of the game. Many reviewers got to play the entry before players could purchase it on Steam, and all of them pointed out the notorious issues with the title.

Gamers boasting the best specs on PC are also affected due to the optimization and bugs. “4090 and Ryzen 9 5900x isn’t good enough for this I guess. Getting around 30-40 fps,” says a review on the Steam page.

Many anticipated gamers have now been put off from the entry, at least until the required number of patches arrive to fix the epidemic of bugs and performance hiccups in the entry. Nevertheless, fret not as Electronic Arts has officially announced “weeks” of patches for the alluring entry, which will likely tackle all the issues hampering the performance.

Most of the top reviews on the Steam storefront are filled with negative remarks for the game, with users highlighting all the performance issues and gameplay bugs currently present after launch. The positive reviews are quite rare and they highlight the other great aspects of the new sequel. Star Wars Jedi Survivor is a fun game that amalgamates action-packed combat with enthralling visuals, but deeply lacks in performance aspects.

The console versions are also plagued with issues, but those versions are in a much better state than the PC one, as many critics have suggested. All in all, many players are furious because of the state of the game after launch, as a lot of hope was surrounding the title. Professional critics have deducted many points from the game, but it has not gathered criticism on a large scale like some other titles after launch, including Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty.
