My favorite first person game and Star Wars game!
24 January 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even 3 years after it's release, this is still my favorite first person game and my favorite Star Wars game. Nothing else has captured the feel of being a lightsaber-wielding Jedi in the Star Wars universe as well as this game has. While the engine is a little dated, most people will find the graphics still look good (in 1024X768 mode) and the gameplay is very well done. Numerous add-ons and skin packs greatly enhance the fun of gameplay.

One of the biggest complaints about the game is the limited multi-player options. The only kind of multi-player game seems to be a deathmatch where players try to kill each other the most number of times. While that is fun for a while, it quickly gets dull.

The only other problem I have is that the cut-scene videos in the single player game could have been made better. The soundtrack seems to be a second or two off with the lips of the actors and the acting in general is very amateur. At the time the game was made, however, video game cut-scenes were still fairly new and not perfected yet, so I let some of these faults slide.

Overall, the game is excellent and I highly recommend this title to any Star Wars fan. I just wish a sequel would come out with an updated game engine.
