Showing 1-5 of 5
Okay for XBOX, Outstanding for PC.
4 August 2003
Summary: Beaten the PC version, In cloud city for xbox. First, the controls for the PC version blow the XBox controller out of the water. There are also some features on the PC that are sorely missed on the Xbox.(3rd person viewing with the guns for one.) Other than that there both the same game in a way. If you have the choice between playing it on either system. Play the PC version.
Summary: I WAS SO EXCITED TO TRY THIS...OUT AND I'M A BIT DISAPPOINTED. HERE'S WHAT I HAVE TO SAY...GRAPHICS ARE GOOD, MUSIC IS COOL. IT LOOKS AND SOUNDS LIKE STAR WARS BUT I'M CERTAIN THAT IT DOESN'T PLAY LIKE STAR WARS...THERE ARE SOME SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH THIS GAME. HERE IS A WORD THAT YOU DON'T HERE MUCH IN GAME REVIEWS, "FLOW" AND THIS GAME HAS NONE.
Summary: I expected this game to be so much more fun, because of the lightsabers and different worlds. Little did i know, it wouldn't be so hysterically fun. It's not THAT creative. Also, sometimes it's so hard it takes months to get to a different world. You get tired and will give up TOO easily. The upside: You don't have to just play a mission. Jedi arena allows you to play with others in your household, Jedi against Jedi.
Summary: I just got "Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast" (what a mouthful!) and needless to say, I was impressed. At first. The visuals were an eyefull and themed appropriately. Everything seemed in order. Then I actually got into the game. Yes, this game was hyped. Yes, it was either reviewed with great scores or with poor scores. Virtually no one beleived it was mediocre. Now, I am a Star Wars fan, nonetheless, I try not to flame a game based on unfair ussumptions.
Summary: The graphics are incredible, the sounds are great, it's fun and challenging, but the control scheme really needs help. The left joystick controls forward and backward movement, but turning left or right is handled by the right joystick. Pushing left or right on the left joystick makes you strafe. There are 4 settings for the controller, but they all feature the same movement scheme.
