We gave Fallen Order 4-stars back in 2019, praising the engaging single player action, large scale cinematic fights, pulse-raising boss battles and breathtaking traversal sequences.
“Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is far from a masterpiece, but to say it could’ve been one without some of its basic flaws may not be so far fetched. As it is, you can look past the tame story and inconvenient bugs and instead revelling in joyous combat, awe-inducing cinematics and fluid platforming,” our reviewer wrote.
