One of the best games ever
5 January 2014
Summary: I have to say the gamecube has probably the greatest games in creation on it, this is one of them. Great multiplayer, amazing story. Me and my brother have played this for hours upon hours since it first came out. In fact I still play it because games today are rubbish, all they care about is the graphics. Our favourite thing is when you push/throw beedo's off ledges into a never-ending casm, the scream they make is hilarious.
Summary: Ill be honest, I was properly bored a few times playing story mode on this game. If I were you i'd get Bounty hunter instead, thats amazing. Mind you, the multiplayer option on this is good so, maybe get both!
Excerpt: This Star Wars game had a lot of potential but was blown off course with too many cheatcodes. The idea of the game was brilliant. They had a game that would give us the power to be a Jedi. The thing was that they did not have an effective way to use the powers. The story line was pretty good. The weapons make you feel more of a mercenary than a Jedi when they should have made it even.
Jedi Outcast: Masterful Action and Jedi Like Style
21 November 2004
Excerpt: I'm a total nut on Star Wars and as such I've come to expect a high standard of game from LucasArts. JKII was my first ever GC game, and as I'd played the N64, I was eager to see what the next Nintendo platform had to offer in terms of Star Wars games. Jedi Outcast is simply a dream to play. For those new to the gaming story, the game centres around Kyle Katarn, star of the acclaimed Dark Forces games and story.
Pros: Star Wars theme, excellent graphics, story is great
Cons: Limitations of platform mean excellent multiplayer but no online play
Excerpt: Jedi Outcast is set quite a few years after Jedi Knight and Mysteries of the Sith. At the end of Mysteries, Kyle Katarn, the Character you play: An ex-Imperial, who helped the Rebels get the Death Star Plans with the Bothan Spies, vowed never to use his sabre or the force again, fearing that he may be lead to the dark side. It is here that Outcast picks up from.
Summary: Now id like to say that allthough I did give this game five stars and called it a master peice, i do have a few arguments... 1. The gameplay doesnt really pick up until you get your lightsaber, which is an imediate and noticable improvement. 2. The cutscens are, in a nutshell... crud... sorry guys, but theres always gotta be something wrong.... 3.
Summary: This game is a Spectacular game, but it doesnt come without shortcomings, The first few levels are quite slow and involve a large amount of puzzle solving to get through, but once you get through these first levels and get your lightsaber and force moves, you be amazed at the gameplay.
Summary: This game is a stright port from the PC version, which was an excellent game. "Great", you might say, except it seems to be ported from a fairly low-spec PC; chunky controls, glitchy controls absolutely abysmal load times. If you can look past all this, it is a gem of a game -- how many games do you get your very own lightsaber? If you have the PC version already, you don't need this game. If you're not a fan of Star Wars, you don't need this game.
Excerpt: A decent Star Wars game is just about as rare as a dinosaur these days – titles such as The Clone Wars, Bounty Hunter and Obi Wan have all fallen woefully below the mark, despite the fact that Lucas Arts have had more practice than anyone to get it right. It may come as a surprise then, that this time round they’ve pulled it off with flying colours – possibly thanks to their collaboration with Raven Software and Vicarious Visions.
Pros: Excellent lightsaber combat, brilliant single player mode .
