Conclusion: Even though there are a ton of great Star Wars games out there I would still recommend this game. The environments aren't that great but the game play is the greatest! It looks so real whenever you strike somebody down with your lighsaber. There are a ton of Dark Jedi you have to fight throughout the game. The sound is the same from the Star Wars saga, but I was so caught up in the game I barely noticed the music!
Conclusion: Alright so you start off as a jedi who gets in a plane crash..Uh okay and then u meet up with this guy that you can tell that isn't exacty...Well you can tell he gets mad easily. Anyways each time you beat a mission you can get another force power or upgrade one you already have. Some missions are stupid, like activating random bombs in a station.
Conclusion: The star wars liscese has developed many games in the past few years. The quality has ranged from bad(Force commander) to terrific (knights of the old republic). The jedi knight series has always stayed at the top of the terrific list with jedi outcast the best in the series. Now a sequil comes are way again and it's well not terrific but it's definetly not bad.
Summary: For any Star Wars fan or for anyone who likes a great story its a must to get this, This is part 4 of the game franchise that first came out on PC. The first to come out on Xbox was Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. As you could imagine the grafix are not the best as its not HD and back then the developers were more concerned with game play and story than grafix like todays standards and games are not as long as the old games used to be About the game: You are a...
Summary: After reading all the positive reviews about this game I decided to buy it as it didn't cost too much, however I was left disappointed by what I got. The gameplay isn't as fluid as I had hoped it would be and the fact that you can create your own jedi and choose which path he follows means very little. The story line is a little cheesy and I can't stand the guy who accompanies you. This game is alright for a laugh but the fact of the matter is that it has dated.
Excerpt: "...not a character from any star wars story doesn't feature anywhere but in this game (and the events that are part of it). The reason for this is that the player gets to choose what Jaden looks like. The Game starts with character creation, where the player can choose from a selction of species; heads; clothes and light saber configurations (what Jedi would be complete without a saber). Once this is done the initial cutscene starts and the game begins ...
Pros: character customisation, easy controls, good graphics
Summary: I got this game after a pal recommended it to me, i THOUGHT it was going to be great. As soon as i had struggled past the dodgey menus i was greeted by poor screen-clips, blocky graphics and jerky controls (halo-style except 3rd person and a lightsaber... turns out terribley). but then again, i only bought it recently and it was bound to be dated by then. It was not totaly awful so i think 2 stars is about fair.
