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.

  • Encounter seven dark jedi, each possessing unique powers

This was an amazing game when released almost 20 years ago. Unfortunately, this release on Steam will not run on modern PCs without third party patches.

Either this game should be officially patched, include a disclaimer on the store page, or not be sold on Steam.

Kyle Katarn's legacy deserves better than this...

Game is broken on windows 10. Cannot play with hardware acceleration at 1080p. Even when playing without hardware acceleration at a lower resolution, the game will crash 50% of the time when returning from the menu. You can try and struggle through it if you wish, but the game isn't worth it.

It took a couple years to after the game had released till I was able to afford and build a PC that could play it as 3D Cards such as the VooDoo were still new to the industry and not exactly cheap for a kid who was just barely out of high school.
That being said, once I did get the chance to play the game I was addicted. After DOOM, I had yet to find another FPS that caught my attention quite like this one did. That's not to say that Dark Forces was bad, it's just that I didn't adapt to it's odd control scheme as well as I do now a days, so I wasn't able to appreciate it's full glory at the time.
Dark Forces II on the other hand I picked right up on! I loved the ease of controls and the ability to look all around and jump, which contrary to many FPS's of today, was HIGHLY utilized in this title as it did not just have you running around horizontal land scapes, merely scaling a flight of stairs here and there, but it also had you carefully travelling across cat walks, being carried by a stream of water, scaling and decending sky scrapers and other large structures that seem go on forever (as Star Wars structures should), and on and on and on.
On top of this you not only get to run and gun and eventually pick up new weapons, but you also acquire force powers as the game goes on, and more than that, you can alter the outcome of the game based upon the the choices that you make within it. And if that's not enough... cut scenes, lots and lots of cut scenes to help push the story and your cuiosity foward as you progress from one unique level to the next.

What this lacks though is hi-def textures, the hi-def model pack, and the ability to run this under Wine. Also it may not be clear that you have to reverse the Y Axis in order to un-reverse look, and you also need to set it to use your 3D GFX card else the graphics will look like a gay pride parade.

That being said, it's worth the download, just don't expect it to be free of configuration needs, and don't expect it to look like a modern game, though map wise, it's got most of the modern ones beet, and the story ain't half bad either, I even read the book!

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II * 7/10

Kyle Katarn is back again, and the moment he grabs a lightsaber he will magically become a powerful jedi without even training!

Yeah, as a huge Star Wars fan, that was the only thing I kind of "disrespect" from this chapter, but considering the epic proportion of the story and the consequent legacy I kind of let it go.
In this chapter Kyle Katarn is after his father's murderer and this quest will take him to a journey full of discovery and surprises as He is destined to find a lightsaber and become a Jedi in order to confront himself with his father's murderer: Jerec, a Sith Lord followed by his six disciples.
So according to the story the biggest news in this game lies in the gameplay. Kyle will start as in Dark Forces with his blaster, making his way with laser shots, but the moment he finds the lightsaber the game will suggest you a third person view (you can use a first person camera if you prefer, but I never did). This will be useful to better control Kyle during lightsaber fights, use of force powers and jumps... Long and very high jumps. This game was a great innovation for its time as it's the first successful attempt to give the player the control of a jedi knight in action (and no, fight tournaments doesn't count at all...), with force powers and all. Of course, it's very crude and unripe, animations are really simple (not to mention the coarse secondary lightsaber attack), force powers are a little cluncky to control at first, but everything comes more handy with time. Another very important part of this game is the double ending. Kyle can end being a Jedi (Canonic ending) or fall to the dark side, and everything according to your behaviour ingame, for example with civilians, or when you choose which force power to improve (you can choose between, neutral, light and dark powers).
Of Course it can't be a Star Wars game without the original amazing soundtrack from John Williams. Unfortunately they're no longer dynamic tracks as in Dark Forces and the music doesn't loop immediately so there wil be moments of silence which kind of ruin the atmosphere.
Levels are pretty big, and with some little puzzles involving switches and timings, but the most particular side inherited by Dark Forces is the maze-like structure sided with hidden passages. To go ahead you have to find THAT hidden passage and this leads to the next place, and this can be sometimes very frustrating, especially in the falling ship level, for example. But that's an example of a good thing as well, as there are levels and situations designed with creativity, with the falling ship being the best example of this.
Unfortunately the game shows its age really bad. Very low polys for models and levels, low resolution textures, the lightsaber looks made of plastic not to mention the very LOW compatibility on modern systems. I had to apply patches and look for more alternatives to get past glitches and very bad issues, but at last I've successfully made it playable. There are also patches that improve a little some textures and the lightsaber effect. At least it compensate with something quite rare: cutscenes with real actors! I wouldn't give any of the actors, nor the FX crew an oscar but I just love them and they did a good job especially if you consider when this was done.

+++PROs+++
  • STORY. Definitely a very good story with everything, Kyle, Jan Ors, the Foe Jerec, his disciples, all with different motivations and nature, great situations and surprises. Everything told ingame or with Live-Action cutscenes!
  • JEDI! For the first time we get to move and control a Jedi, with a lightsaber and force powers.
  • ...OR SITH? It's not supposed to be a canon part of the story but your behaviour is monitored and your choices and actions will tip the balance towards the light or dark side giving different endings.
  • SOUNDTRACK. Of course there's always the amazing music from the Original Star Wars soundtrack.
---CONs---
  • SOUNDTRACK. ...But unlike its predecessor and successor it isn't a dynamic soundtrack that alternates calm tracks in exploring situations and more active music during fights. Besides the music won't loop immediately leaving moments of silence.
  • STORY. "Grab a lightsaber -> become a Jedi" is a very wrong axiom, but I'm too kind and I forgive them for this simplification.
  • LOW-COMPATIBILITY ISSUES. This game is very old and of course issues and glitch were expected. My first attempt resulted in a black screen ingame with all sounds and events running, or completely inverted/pixel-blasted textures. Luckily, after GTA IV I've gained enough patience to read deeply the Steam Community to find different solutions and patches, and I've made it work eventually... Too bad that seems like the GOG release is already patched and fully working... -.-
  • LEVELS STRUCTURE. Especially in the last sections they're really tough, with some particular puzzles or a mandatory too well hidden passage for the next place. It requires very good observation and attention to details.

The game would be fun if it was compatible with newer OS version. There's a lot wrong with it & it is so bad I won't play it. Maybe an XP emulator would help...assuming Steam would work with XP now. Not worth the trouble. These games should not be sold unless tested with newer operating systems.

I love the game itself, but the Steam version is not optimized to run on modern computers and is a real headache to get working, if indeed it will work at all. Seek out alternative purchasing options. I hear the GOG version works well on modern hardware.

Honestly steam should be ashamed of themselves for offering this title and the rest of its series without win7/8 support or even at the very least a warning that they don't work.. all you get now is a worthless game less money and no way to ask for a refund.. avoid like the plague!

That said this is possibly the best star wars FPS ever made.


edit*
It appears we have been heard, now it actually lets you know that there is a chance it wont work on modern systems.. of course its hidden pretty well but at least its there.. a drastic improvement from over 2 years ago.

Still a massive case of Buyer Beware.. seriously just get the game on GoG.. they at least make sure their stuff works or refund you if it doesnt.

EDIT (JANUARY 29th 2015): Dark Forces 2 is now on GoG. And the version there is vastly superior to the Steam release. The background music works and it finally lets you run the game properly. I HIGHLY suggest you get it there.

Original review:

Dark Forces 2 is a game I grew up with. It's an amazing game that I think has aged extremely well and is as enjoyable today as it was back in the 90's.

However as good as Dark Forces 2 is. It is completely ruined by how shoddily the game runs on modern operating systems. It's to the point where if you try and run it in a 64 bit OS you have to trade between getting the game to render with proper colors vs a playable framerate.

This is a major case of buyer beware. It's near impossible to run on Windows 7 and 8 64bit properly, and the only way I got this game to work was by installing a Virtual Machine. Only purchase if you're willing to put up with how badly this game runs.

Serious, and I mean SERIOUS compatability issues.

I'm sure this is a great Star Wars game given people's commentary on it, but do not let nostalgia or curiosity persuade you to buy this if you use any PC with Windows 7, 8, or 10. Compatability absolutely sucks; In my case, to the point where the game is close to unplayable. I can see a good game trying to shine through, but I can't bear to play it through the colossal issues and crashing.

I'm sure if this game actually worked, I would be able to reccommend it to high heaven.
