I’m a huge Star Wars fan, and ever since I watched A New Hope on my family’s CRT in our living room, I’ve been hooked. I love it all, from the fast-paced action sequences, to the awesome Sci-Fi stuff, to the love stories and political undertones. There’s so much to take in and explore marketplace bandung that I watched the bounty-hunting show, The Mandalorian, just to get a little more of that good stuff, and I started wanting more after watching the first season. So when I finally got around to playing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, I knew I was in for a treat.
Until I played Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, I had mostly spent my time with games like Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, the original Star Wars Battlefront from the PlayStation 2, and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II. I know that’s a wild timespan between titles, but unfortunately, my experience with Star Wars videogames has been kind of spotty over the years. But thankfully, I had some funds left over in my bank account, and I decided to spend it on buying Fallen Order from the PlayStation 4’s PlayStation Network store, which I will forever thank myself for.
Fallen Order follows the former Jedi Padawan in hiding, Cal Kestis, on the planet Bracca five years after the Galactic Republic’s transformation into the Empire. During this time, Cal escapes the Great Jedi Purge caused by Order 66. Along the way, his friend Prauf is killed by an Inquisitor, forcing Cal to flee to the planet Bogano with his new allies Cere and Greez, who rescued him back on Bracca. Throughout his journey, Cal meets several friends and foes and eventually comes up against the most imposing of them all, but is able to get away thanks to the reawakened powers of former Jedi Knight Cere Junda. No spoilers other than that little tidbit, of course, because the final reveal is worth experiencing for yourself. This isn’t Last of Us levels of storytelling, but it’s still a fun plot that does a good job of getting you interested, and I genuinely enjoyed all its twists and turns.
