I played this a full three years after it came out, and much like the three Disney sequel movies, it’s a beautiful game with a compelling universe to play in, but falls absolutely flat. I didn’t play any of the multiplayer, as I played a few hours of the first one’s and grew tired of it within minutes, so I know that I wasn’t going to enjoy more of the same here.
For the single player campaigns, there were no show stopping bugs to be had, but the gameplay was not as dialed in as I would expect from a SW game, especially after playing Fallen Order, but maybe the lessons learned from SWBF2 is why Fallen Order was so much better. There was white text on white backgrounds,broken loot boxes, but even with all that I still think I enjoyed both campaigns. Oh, did I not mention? there’s two campaigns here, which I appreciate, but now know I absolutely hated having a whole other story dumped on me. The second part was blissfully short, but was more of the same floaty nonsense that the main campaign had. I remember something like this happening in a Batman LEGO game and I just straight up quit the game.
You can safely skip this game unless you’re super interested in the story elements, but I think your time would be better spent on wikipedia reading the plot in 5 minutes than spending 20 hours playing through it yourself.
