Star Wars Jedi Knight II Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: If there is a Star Wars fan out there that owns an Xbox than this game is a must have for your collection. I know that, personally, owning this game was a no-brainer to pick up at the store. The gameplay elements, level design, fun factor, graphics, and audio add up to one of the most enjoyable action games on a home console to date.

(Star Wars) Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast

Game Vortex
6 March 2006
  • Excerpt: After a rather dismal showing last year with Obi-Wan , Lucasarts is looking to bring all the adventure and excitement that goes with being a Jedi to the Xbox with Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast . Graphically, JK II is good - but pales in comparison to other Xbox titles. In fact, when compared to the other titles out there - JK II is actually a step back and makes you wonder why it took so long for it to make the jump.

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast

Into Liquid Sky
25 December 2005
  • Excerpt: In Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast , you play as Kyle Katarn, a mercenary under the hire of Mon Mothma. Taking place some years after Return of the Jedi , Kyle and his partner, Jan Ors, are sent to investigate a base for the Remnant forces of the Empire, who are apparently experimenting on creating crystals that can give even normal people the ability to use the Force.
  • Pros: Feels and sounds like Star Wars, Multiplayer adds to game, Force powers add depth to "run and gun" gameplay
  • Cons: Enemy A.I. can be mediocre, Cutscenes look low-res

  • Excerpt: Star Wars is quite possibly the single most intriguing and fully fleshed out Sci-Fi/Fantasy world of our time. Love, betrayal, revenge, epic military conflicts, duels between supremely skilled warriors and all other elements of an exceptional story can be found within the vast Star Wars universe.

Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast

The Armchair Empire
9 January 2002
  • Conclusion: and Kyle decides he must reclaim his lightsaber from Luke Skywalker (who has taken it upon himself to train Jedi on a familiar moon from Episode IV) and relearn his force powers to confront Dessan and save the galaxy. Most elements of the story will be instantly recognizable but some aspects like the Jedi Academy will be new to those that haven’t read the latest books.

Katarn returns, but what of his sabre?

Web Wombat
11 March 2006
  • Conclusion: The game moves at a fair clip on most above-average PCs (let's say 500Mhz +), the story is ultra-juicy, the gameplay highly addictive and, last of all, it's got that soundtrack. Star Wars fans will get a real buzz out of Jedi Knight 2, while for everyone it still offers some of the best story-driven gaming around.

Do, or do not… There is no try

Web Wombat
11 March 2006
  • Conclusion: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is a great title. While the engrossing single-player plot-driven game is in there, providing at the very least a few weeks of solid play, Vicarious Visions has added a seriously appetizing multiplayer aspect to boot.
