It is an FPS....
19 June 2003
Summary: Graphics 9/10: This game has great graphics but it doesn't use the full power of the Xbox. Gameplay 5/10: If you want a good FPS then just get Halo. If you really want this game get it for PC. If you get it for PC, my friend says you can get third-person for guns and everything. If you get it for Xbox, you can only get 3P mode for the lightsaber. Sound 0/10: You don't really hear much sound except for the gunshots and lightsaber swings.
Summary: I had this game on the PC (decent) and looked forward to the XBox version to utilize my HDTV set and moderately elaborate home theater. This game is disappointing. The graphics are fair. The sound is absolutely terrible. This was the straw that made me return this rental after the 1st day. I wanted to play it, but this was simply too distracting (seriously, I am not nit-picking).
Summary: I won't go into the games other aspects as the other reviewers have done a good job desbribing the story, controls, and overall gameplay. What I will touch on is the AWFUL character animations and overall mediocre graphics. Maybe I'm just jaded from playing Splinter Cell but the characters here are laughable, especially the death animations. The AI is also pathetic. More than once did I have at least 3 to 4 Stormtroopers run from me in terror.
Summary: this will not be a comprehensive review, kids. i just wanted to throw a few things out there that were, unfortunately, not included in video game mag reviews (but then again, no one from Lucas Arts is paying me for ad space, ya dig?). i played the PC version of Jedi Outcast at a friend's and really wanted to pick up a copy on my way home that day - it played well and looked sweet!
Summary: I just rented Jedi Outcast for my son and I to play, and was really disappointed. From the graphics to the way the game played, Jedi Outcast was weak. I am really glad that I rented this game first. I am a huge Star Wars fan, but would not buy this game. I am hoping Knights of The Republic is better.
