Did You Know?


The player character was originally meant to be Luke Skywalker, and the events of the game were originally meant to follow the events of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). The game designers instead decided to create a unique character and set the stage before the first film. See more »


Jabba's dialogue when he speaks to Kyle before he is thrown in the kell dragon pit are samples from Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi and originally meant something different in Huttese than what the subtitles in the game imply. See more »


Mon Mothma: This Imperial officer, Crix Madine, wishes to defect to the Alliance. He has supplied us with information on the development of a new weapon... A new type of stormtrooper: the Dark Trooper.
Kyle Katarn: [Kyle cocks an eyebrow, considering for a moment] A new type of stormtrooper that can take out a Rebel base that quickly? I should have kept working for the Empire.

Great for its time.Alright for today's.
24 July 2006 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Rated T for Violence.

I have had Star Wars Dark Forces for many years now.When I was seven I played this game and Full Throttle all the time.For 1994 when this game came out it was a great first person shooter which was loosely based on the original three Star Wars films.However instead of playing Luke Skywalker you played as another person but Darth Vader and the Stormtroopers from the Star Wars movies.When I got my Windows XP along with Full Throttle this game did not work so I have not played this game in a very long time.You basically go through levels killing stormtroopers and other baddies with the weapons you have.Star Wars Dark Forces is a very good game for its time but today its just mediocre with many elements in the game such as graphics being dated.
