During the game's many live action sequences, fans of Star Wars are treated to many new colors of lightsabers. (At this point in the franchise, only red/blue/green lightsabers had been seen.) Among the new sabers are yellow and purple ones. See more »


After the player confronts Gorc and Pic, the droid 8t88 is standing in a different position with the right arm removed (shot off by Katarn early on, but was shown that it had been replaced). See more »


[Sariss was about to kill the incapacitated Kyle Katarn. Yun however quickly put his lightsaber in the way of the blow, resulting in Sariss slashing through his body. Yun drops on his knees]
Sariss: [suprised and almost regretful] ... Why?
Yun: [breathing heavily] He is a Jedi. He deserves a battle.

Remember Kyle Katarn? You know, the guy from Dark Forces? Well, the hero who stole the Death Star plans single-handedly(and blew up some droid troopers or sth.) is BACK and this time he's Force-sensitive so watch out! Kyle returns, but this time he ain't working for the Rebels. Instead, Kyle and his trusty E-11 Blaster Rifle are out to avenge the death of Morgan Katarn, Kyle's dad who was murdered by seven Dark Jedi who seek the location of the Valley of the Jedi, a Force nexus. Kyle claims his inheritance, which is a lightsaber and the Valley itself and becomes a Mercenary/Jedi hybrid with every intent to stop the Dark Jedi.

This game is awesome. With this, you can easily forget that the original DF even existed. Kyle turns from a blank character into the Chuck Norris of Star Wars in a second! Now that's an achievement. The game looks good, has fantastic FMV cutscenes and gives you the right atmosphere of Star Wars right away.

10 out of 10

Oh, and if you like this game, then I suggest you also find Jedi Knight 2 where an older Kyle returns again to save Jan Ors from another Dark Jedi.
