We awarded Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order a 9 in our review, praising its "great story, engaging characters, and excellent combat."
"Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order is yet another excellent game developed by Respawn. With its excellent story, charming characters, engaging platforming and combat mechanics, the game is a must-buy for any self-respecting Star Wars fan, despite a lack of innovation which doesn't truly harm the experience as a whole."
It's a great time to go ahead and jump into what was undoubtedly one of the best Star Wars games in the last few years if you hadn't already done so. It should feel even better now that it's brought additional improvements to the table, after all.
