The best Star Wars game and criminally underrated
16 May 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is one of my personal favourite video games and perhaps the best Star Wars game I've played. It's in many respects a game that Star Wars fans could only dream of experiencing. It has lightsaber combat, incredible Force powers and truly captures the feel good spirit of the movies.

Jedi Outcast is the third game in the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight series and continues the story of Kyle Katarn, a rebel mercenary and rogue Jedi Knight. After abandoning his Force powers and Jedi role following the events in the expansion pack Mysteries of the Sith, Kyle has returned to his previous status as a mercenary working for New Republic Intelligence. He and his partner Jan Ors are hired to investigate an Imperial base where a conspiracy involving lightsaber crystals is uncovered. When Jan is believed to be killed by a Dark Jedi warrior known as Desann, the leader of the new Imperial Remnant faction, Kyle seeks revenge and returns to the Valley of the Jedi to regain his lost powers. With the guidance of Luke Skywalker, he sets out to find Desann and prevent him from using an army of dark force users to destroy the Jedi Academy.

The story to Outcast can be described as predictable but it still remains an exciting and well paced adventure and for Star Wars fans, it feels like something out of the movies. The John Williams score and the sound effects also give the player a sense that they are experiencing the actual Star Wars universe.

The lightsaber combat is the best out of any Star Wars Jedi game I've played. The combat is much more integrated and refined which allows the player to feel like an actual Knight of the Order along with the use of some fun and awesome Force powers. The standard use of weapons such as blasters is also fun to use. The first few levels of the game may come across as boring to some players as the lightsaber isn't introduced until much later. However this makes the feel of playing with a lightsaber much more effective. The level design is also masterful and the graphics are impressive by 2002 standards. Only two locales from the movies are playable in this game; Yavin 4 and Bespin. Die hard fans of the Expanded Universe may recognize the planet Nar Shaddaa however there are many other new locations that Kyle visits along with a few familiar terrains in the worth playing multiplayer.

This is a fantastic game and one of my all time favourites. This is worth playing if you're a Star Wars fan and you'll find a very fun action romp with a story that captures the Flash Gordon essence of the original trilogy and also merges the prequel style of lightsaber battling. This is a terrific PC platformer that deserves much more credit than it gets.
