About the Game

Dark Forces™ set the industry standard for first person action in the Star Wars® universe. Now Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II picks up where the award-winning game left off...with even more features and firepower in dazzling 3D graphics. As Kyle Katarn, you must acquire the lightsaber and learn the ways of the Force to become a Jedi Knight. Confront old foes... Greedo, Boosk, stormtroopers. And new enemies... seven dark Jedi who plan to harness the power of an ancient burial ground for unsurpassed evil. But take heart, your 10 weapon arsenal and over 12 Force powers make you a force to be reckoned with.

  • Single or multiplayer gameplay over modem, network or Internet. 9 multiplayer levels
  • All new realistic 3D environments with animated 3D characters in 21 heart-stopping levels
  • Encounter seven dark jedi, each possessing unique powers
  • Compatible with many 3D graphics cards
  • Intense Star Wars action in an all-new story fraught with danger and adventure - do you take the quick and easy path as Darth Vader did or do you take the patient route to Jedi Knighthood?

If you choose the light side:

  • Train to become a Jedi Knight - master the elegant Lightsaber and learn four special apprentice abilities
  • Use exclusive light side powers: healing, persuasion (for the weak-minded), blinding and absorption

Or be tempted by the dark side:

  • Use your Jedi Knight training and apprentice abilities to become an agent of evil
  • Use exclusive dark side powers: the grip (used if there's a disturbing lack of faith), Force throw, energy bolts and destruction

The sequel to Dark Forces from '95, Dark Forces II improves everything from Dark Forces, with the most important factor being Lightsaber Combat.

Jedi Knight boosts lavish enviroments, detailed textures, and tight controls. This game is a classic and is a most own for any fan of Star Wars.

FMV cutscenes, while may come off as cheesy, are rather well done and Jason Court, who portrays Kyle Katarn, does a great job at bringing a third dimension to the character.

Gameplay style includes First and Third Person viewpoints, allowing for First Person saber duels for realism and Third person for most control. Overall, this game is a fun and challenging Star Wars game that should leave you fulfilled when you finish it.

After playing this game for weeks on end as a child I was pleasantly delighted to see it for sale on Steam and I promptly bought and downloaded it in hopes that it would still be as great as I remembered, which it is. This is one of the few games that still holds its own after all the years. The graphics are obviously dated and the cutscenes are a little cheesy but the gameplay is still entertaining and the levels are challenging enough to keep your interest while being short enough to not make you bored. This is LucasArts at it finest and I would recommend this game to everyone.

This game maybe old but still rocks. The IPX Multiplayer may not be useful since that is ancient history, but the single player mode is good. The only thing is trying to solve puzzles on what routes or breaches that is possible to proceed in the game.

Also you maybe better playing in 640x480 or 800x600 as the GUI and HUD will look too tiny to get a clear visual. Those are the things that could improve this game and using the MouseWheel to select weapons - that isn't featured.

My game has not crashed, but i'm running on software rendering and some memory options in the game are turned off. It causes decreasing of fps, but it does not effect gameplay at all

One of the greatest games of my childhood not recommended for steam... you're better off finding a physical copy; The compatability hasn't been written properly for DRM and if you're lucky enough to get that working and launch the game you'll more than likely find a dozen more graphical and sound anomalies in game. No soundtrack? (Go ahead play a Star Wars game without an OST).
