Tietoja pelistä

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

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.

If you're going to charge money for an older game, at least make an effort to make it work on modern PCs or give a warning if it does not.

For the record what little I've been able to play of the game I've loved. It's a damn shame I can't play it anymore.

Don't get me wrong - Dark Forces II is an amazing game, it's great fun and the best Star Wars game I've ever played...
But, unfortunately I cannot whole heartedly reccomend it to users on modern systems. If you have an older system that can run it, than go for your life, I'm sure you'll love it. but to those who do not, there's nothing I can really say for you. This game rules, but lacks support on modern systems, It truly is a tradgedy.

No joke - the best in the series, and the best Star Wars game... ever! You get full motion cutscenes, which contribute a true Star Wars feeling, and the giant levels are designed really well and are never TOO challenging yet rarely easy. Even before you get the lighsaber you become addicted because you are looking for secret areas and taking out jerks with guns like a badass! The graphics don't hold up quite as well as the latter entries in the series, but they are still good enough to keep you interested; which is something I cannot say of the Dark Forces. The final thing that makes this game great is the story; you can choose the light side or dark side and both stories are pretty awesome. Your actions can change the story and the 7 Dark Jedi you have to fight don't take it easy on you! Out of the countless Star Wars games I have played over the years, I think this one is the most fun. (The Super Star Wars series, Battlefront games, and KOTOR are very close) But seriously, any Star Wars fan needs to get this game!!

Dark Forces 2 is one of the best games ever made. It's a great second installment on the story of Kyle Katarn and his epic adventures throughout the galaxy.

Then why am I NOT recommending this? Simple: Steam and whoever else is involved do not support this game AT ALL. From the moment I have installed this game, nothing but compatibility issues have bubbled up, and after several hours of troubleshooting, I now have a game that crashes for no apparent reason. What's amazing is that each time you play, new bugs show up. I'm sure that there is no way I could ever finish this game as the bugs are thicker than welfare recipients at a detroit mcdonalds.

Steam: I highly recommend you fix this disaster. You know what you have done, and it's proabably not that hard to fix on your side. Just make it useable for OSs after XP and we are golden.

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.

I loved this game back in the day, it is one of my all time favourites. That just means it pains me all the more to not recommend purchasing this game if you are running Windows 7 or 8, it simply will not run for me on either OS. Maybe Linux users will have better luck I'm not sure. Maybe pickup Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, as tha games is just as awesome (possibly more so) as this game used to be.

Don't get me wrong, it's a great game in a great series, but the optimisation sucks bantha balls. GOG.com have fixed it and will throw in Mysteries of the Sith for less than the cost of this version here on Steam.

No problems running this game here (Win 7, Oct 2014). Classic first person shooter, featuring level design to rival Half-life and a Star Wars theme, what's not to love? Played this on release and it blew me away. Graphics have obviously aged, but still a lot here to recommend. Wish they still made them like this!

I spent months and months playing this game over and over again when I was younger. This steam version is very good, everything is as I remember and plays well. A great FPS, with lots of good nods to the Star Wats universe, Excellent weaponry and a good story, with some great acted cutscenes that are a treat to watch. SPOILER: Dark versus Light side options near the end of the game give you a great reason to replay the game at least twice.

Jedi Knight, the follow up FPS to Dark Forces was and still is one of the best FPS games to date. The only thing that didn't age well in this game is the graphics. The models can look horrible at times, but overall the immense levels create a sense of immersion rarely seen in games these days. The level design is top notch, the length of each level is very long, and the variety of weapons is perfect. This is a Star Wars game at its best. The storyline is well done too, though the video produced cutscenes are cheesy at best, but at least they keep the story going, and the story gives you reason and meaning to why you are fighting. I did have some issues with the game. The amount of times that I died and had to restart from a save from a long time ago was very frustrating. I wish this game had auto save, which would have been perfect when specific goals on your objectives were completed. Also, the lack of the audio music from Star Wars (which was played from the CD in the original format) is absent in this Steam version. I watched the credits without any Star Wars music, and throughout the game it was the same.

This game is a classic. If you love Star Wars and don't mind the dated graphics, you're in for a great adventure. Highly recommended.

This game is so cool, like seriously, it's one of the most satisfying games i've played in a long time. While the graphics aren't aged well and people who can't tolerate pixels won't appriciate it for that, it's story is amazing( the cutscenes are so good, almost like a real Star Wars movie) and the combat is just awesome. I've played only 4 hours on this so far, but holy ♥♥♥♥, i see myself completeing this game multiple times since you can either be Evil or Good. Now I hear that it's a mess to make it work on Windows 7 and Windows 8, but I'm using linux, and It works without any problems, just install the windows version of steam on linux and it should work. Crashes are somewhat rare, but thankfully you can quicksave in this game, so a crash once a couple of hours don't affect me. haven't tested the multiplayer yet, but I doubt anyone is still playing this. Too bad, because it's an amazing game. First Person Shooter fans and Star Wars fans should get it asap.

TL;DR - Get it, now. Especially if you're not using Windows 7 and 8

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.

WARNING: THIS STEAM VERSION HAS NO MUSIC. Others may have mentioned it but I feel the need to reiterate it for those who will undoubtedly feel cheated by Valve's very sneaky lack of a real explanation on the store page. Steam does not emulate Red Book audio, so this game's iconic soundtrack is just deleted. If you look very closely at the store page you'll see that "Full Audio" has been cleverly unchecked, which is their way of protecting themselves while selling a broken half-product. SHAME ON YOU, VALVE. These kinds of things demand a full disclaimer on the store page in big, bold letters. Looks like I'll be buying all of my classic games on GOG from now on.

This game is a classic. Even though the cutscenes look dated, I just love the feel of them. This game feels better put together than the later installments of the Jedi Knight series. If you are going to play any of them I would suggest this one.

Note: You will have to look around on the net to figure out potential problems that may happen due to the fact that this game is so dated. If you think you can put up with that, they why haven't you bought it yet?!

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.
