Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast – Consumer Guide
18 February 2013
Excerpt: According to ESRB , this game contains: Violence Parents may find this title a little to brash for their younger children. The title's protagonist does swear mildly, and gamers will spend the majority of their time slashing away at humanoid enemies. Along with this comes the severing of hands and arms, but the game does not include decapitations. Additionally, gamers can choke enemies to death in a rather gratuitous manner. Star Wars fans should look into this title.
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast – Second Opinion
18 February 2013
Excerpt: If Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is "a beacon of light" as Keith calls it, I don't want to follow. This game should change its subtitle from " Jedi Outcast " to "Faces of Death" because it isn't so much an interactive adventure set in the Star Wars universe as it is the most elaborate and punishing three-dimensional mousetrap ever conceived. Unfair group ambushes, impossibly entrenched snipers and trap door-hidden Storm Troopers plague nearly step of the game.
Excerpt: Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is actually the third game in the series, following Dark Forces and Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. The game once again follows the adventures of Kyle Katarn, a rebel bounty hunter who is strong in the force. Maybe you remember that in the first game Kyle left the Imperial Army to join the Rebel Alliance and in the second he became a Jedi Knight.
Excerpt: There are games that make the news and stay in it. There are those that never make the news and fade into obscurity. And then there are those who create a flutter when they arrive but are then forgotten.
Excerpt: I've always wondered what it would be like to buy a game that would, in many ways, fulfill a life-long 'gaming' dream of mine. I don't have that many, and none have ever come true - or that is, until now. Not only does Jedi Outcast fulfill this dream, but it also provides one of the most immersive, visually stunning FPS experiences ever created, complete with top-notch graphics, sound, and game design.
Excerpt: Graphics & Sound:
Built with the same engine that produced ID Software's monolith, Quake III , there is not much you could say about these visuals. The realism of every shape, landscape and character is amazing. You will easily recognize the Storm Troopers, Imperials and Droids from the movies. Even humongous Tie Fighters and AT-STs sitting in a hanger are flawless.
Excerpt: I can recall back to my childhood watching the Star Wars Trilogy . I have rather fond memories of the movies and even dreams that have never been able to manifest themselves in any other media other than my imagination. It's rather disappointing when I think about it, especially considering the multitude of opportunities LucasArts has had to capture the experiences of the movies.
