À propos de ce jeu

Dark Forces™ a été la référence pour les jeux d'action à la première personne dans l'univers de Star Wars®. Aujourd'hui Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II reprend le flambeau... avec encore plus de possibilités offertes au joueur, et plus de puissance, avec des graphismes 3D éblouissants. Vous incarnez Kyle Katarn et vous devez prendre votre sabre laser et apprendre à maîtriser la Force pour devenir un Chevalier Jedi. Affrontez d'anciens ennemis... Greedo, Boosk, ou les stormtroopers. Ainsi que de nouveaux ennemis... sept Jedi du côté obscur ont prévu d'utiliser le pouvoir d'un ancien cimetière pour un mal inégalable. Ne vous inquiétez pas une seule seconde : votre arsenal de 10 armes et plus de 12 pouvoirs de la Force feront de vous une menace avec laquelle ils devront compter.
  • Un jeu solo ou multijoueur via un modem, un réseau local ou Internet. 9 niveaux multijoueur
  • De nouveaux environnements 3D, avec des personnages animés en 3D dans 21 niveaux de longue haleine
  • Rencontrez sept jedi du côté obscur, chacun d'eux possédant des pouvoirs uniques
  • Compatible avec une grande variété de cartes graphiques 3D
  • De l'action Star Wars intense dans une toute nouvelle histoire pleine de danger et d'aventure - prendrez-vous le chemin le plus rapide et facile comme l'a fait Dark Vador ou serez-vous plus patient pour prendre l'autre voie afin de devenir Chevalier Jedi ?
Si vous choisissez le côté lumineux :
  • Entraînez-vous pour devenir un Chevalier Jedi - apprenez à maîtriser le Sabre Laser et découvrez 4 capacités spéciales de padawan
  • Utilisez des pouvoirs exclusifs au côté lumineux : le soin, la persuasion (pour les faibles d'esprit), l'aveuglement et l'absorption.
Ou alors choisissez le côté obscur :
  • Utilisez votre entraînement de Chevalier Jedi et vos capacités de padawan pour devenir un agent du mal.
  • Utilisez des pouvoirs exclusifs au côté obscur : la saisie à distance (à utiliser lors d'un manque de foi inquiétant), le lancer de la Force, les éclairs d'énergie et la destruction.

Looks great and running on Windows 10 64bit but ..
I do not recommend this game for Windows 10 until you see happy customers, spend your money elsewhere.

Game crashes every time I return to game from ESC menu.
I beat the first level in full screen mode which was very enjoyable while it worked but then enroute to level 2 the display went to Windows desktop but I could still hear the cinematics playing between levels. The next level did load and returned me from Windows desktop so I could actually play level 2. Seriously though, I'm not playing the game if I can only hear what's going on between missions.
Not able to use windowed mode by adding -windowgui and -displayconfig to the game properties in Steam library.

Bottom line : Fix game so cinematics between levels in fullscreen works and I will be happy to recommend this game. That makes it unplayable for me.

OS : Windows 10 64bit Home Premium (upgrade)
Windows Updates : Fully updated
STEAM : fully updated

Beautiful game, but bad compatibility with modern machines. Don't buy the steam version. GOG's version has been patched to work on modern Windows OSs, and it includes the official expansion pack. Check it out here: https://www.gog.com/game/star_wars_jedi_knight_dark_forces_ii

I honestly loved this game growing up, played it all the time. Unfortunatley, the Steam version is so glitched that I've never been able to get the game to run for more than a few minutes. I'd be able to start the game, and cutscenes were fine, but the minute I'd move on the first level all the colors would invert. I'd go to the menu to try to fix graphics settings only to have to wait because it could only display the menu in windowed mode, and then the game would crash. I honestly hope Steam fixes this soon, because this was a great game.

Looking at other reviews I seem to be fortunate that with a Windows 8.1 system the game ran for me - first time, out of the box, no problem.

Apologies Jedi and Padwans but it sucks. It is one of those "old school" FPSs where enemies constantly come at you from concealed positions damaging your shields so badly that if that encounter didn't kill you the next one will. Ammunition and shield regenerators are both rare and respawn points seem non existent within a level so the game degenerates into having to learn every encounter to ensure you kill the enemy before they get the chance to kill you. The frankly dull and blocky graphics don't encourage replays either.

I've played through Doom 1 and 2 from start to finish so I'm used to FPSs from the dawn of the genre. I'm not sure where this game acquired its previously good reputation but, honestly, I found for gameplay, variation of enemies, variation of weapons, and graphics this is one of the worst FPSs I've ever seen.

S.x.

They really dropped the ball on this one. The game itself is fine, but it's missing the iconic Star Wars music and is hard to run.

Buy it on GOG instead.

An excellent game, but doesn't run on Windows 7 and beyond without patches you have to find elsewhere, or otherwise messing around with compatability options to 'sorta' be able to play.
If you just want to install and play, this isn't the game for you.

I do believe it's worth the trouble if you're returning to this game, though.
imo this is the high point of the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight run of games.
Great Music, great levels, Awesome (cheesy) live action/cgi cutscenes, weapons feel great, addition of force powers makes you feel more in control than ever. Ignoring the awkwardness in getting it to work, it's very hard to really find much wrong with the game.

Until they actually fix these releases, though, I cannot make a general recommendation.

I played the 1st SWDF and was blown away by the fun factor, good controls, and retro graphics. As soon as I started playing the 2nd, I realized the controls sucked a**. You cannot even map certain buttons you want. The graphics look like dog a** even the 1st one had better graphics. Most of the time I get lost and have no idea how to complete the missions anymore. This game is nothing like the first. Only if you're a huge stars wars I would recommend this otherwise f*ck this sh*t!

Dark Forces II was, arguably, one of the best shooters of its day. Provided that you don't mind a bit of effort to get the game up and running properly, the follow-up to the original DOS classic is well worth a look, providing an excellent example of how great a licensed title can be and the capability of its now defunct developer LucasArts.

Jedi Knight places you once more in the role of Kyle Katarn, a battle-hardened, side-switching mercenary of the expanded universe. Taking place a short time after the events of Episode VI, a small corrupted faction of the Empire's remnants known as the Dark Jedi are in pursuit of the legendary Valley of the Jedi and the unstoppable power that it supposedly grants. With an obvious interest in tracking them down, the inevitable confrontation allows you a chance to avenge the death of his family.

A huge step-up in terms of narrative alone, JK is also a significant depature from its predecessor in most respects. Levels are now bigger and more sprawling than ever but not baffling to explore, and there are plenty of hidden surprises across the various locations of the campaign. Sound is no longer technically limited by the MIDI format of the early '90s and John Williams' score plays on top of all the classic sound effects taken straight from the films. Combat is more refined and easy to get into and enjoy, with an impressive range of weapons on offer rather than an over-reliance on the Stormtrooper's blaster rifle or thermal detonators. The introduction of lightsaber combat is also worthy of note, though is admittedly prone to clunky, hack-and-slash gameplay.

Unlike the atrocious in-engine rendering of Mysteries of the Sith, JK uses the classic (almost nostalgic) combination of live-action and early CGI to establish the fairly well written narrative during the frequent (and occasionally lengthy) cutscenes. Most of the cast seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed acting in them and in-game dialogue uses the same high quality voices, which is a nice touch.

As one who has never been that invested or interested in Star Wars, (I've only seen the six episodes once and have little interest in the reboots), I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable this turned out to be. Having picked up the entire Jedi Knight collection and Battlefront II during the recent sale, it's encouraging to see licensed titles that are actually decent and, more to the point, satisfying to play.

The game certainly does have compatibility issues, (considering it's age), and requires a decent amount of time to tweak, fix and optimise for modern PCs. Yet it is a relatively straight-forward process and there a plenty of excellent guides and tutorials available in the community hub here to help you get it going.

As a result, I really can recommend Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II; a shooter that caters to pretty much everyone. It is a vastly superior experience compared to the first yet still retains the depth and style of it's now non-canon lore. Star Wars fans will have an absolute blast playing through this, undoubtedly coming back for more playthroughs, and for those such as myself, it provides an excellent example of the '90s shooter and a worthy alternative to Doom or Quake. Thumbs up.

Great game, great memories. Updated to work on Win 10 as of 5/6/16 I think. Only problem I had was in game colors was inverted until I pick something up, which is no big deal. For those looking for the total package you missed your chance long ago: Graphics are dated for current games and multiplayer only works for LAN (this was one of the best multiplayer games back in the day if you had friends with it).
The review:
One of the best star wars games and lightsaber dueling games of its time, the original 'made me feel like a real Jedi' game. Cutscenes are not really high quality as far as acting goes, but still a good story. Expect no hand holding on this one - levels get pretty tough and there are secrets eveywhere.
10/10 - Bias review based on this being a big part of my childhood. I have never let the bartender in the first scene live, and I never will.

This review will change once the game gets proper Steam Support. In it's current state, the game is broken. Movement and aiming is very difficult which is disappointing. Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II was the first Star Wars Game that allowed players to use a Lightsaber and actually feel like a Jedi.

The game is a sequel to the original Dark Forces (which I DO recommend) which was the first ever Star Wars FPS and follows the main character, Kyle Katarn (who fans will always remember as the ORIGINAL thief of the Death Star Plans), on a quest to stop a Dark Jedi named Jerek from finding a place called the Valley of the Jedi and using its power to destroy the New Republic (the game is set post Return of the Jedi, before Disney erased the EU). Along the way, Kyle discovers his latent connection to the Force and recieves a Lightsaber, allowing players the opportunity to play with a lightsaber for the first time in Star Wars Gaming History.

Too bad this game is broken on Steam. The Nostalgia is strong with this one. Like I said, I will change my review once the game recieves proper steam support.

I struggled whether to give this game a positive or negative review.
Tl;dr: Game is great if you can get it to work.

I love the game itself. Partly due to nostalgia for a game that I grew up with, but despite somewhat out-dated graphics there is still great gameplay. The levels aren't all boring straightforward run and shoot, and it still contains the best lightsabre use of any starwars game I've played to date.

However. This version of the game takes so much work to actually run that i'm amazed that steam has released it as is (and have not even attempted to fix). I needed to install old graphics drivers, run in compatibility mode, download the music separately (outside of steam) and insert into the files manually. Thankfully the steam community has a couple of walkthroughs on how to get the game to run. But - desptie this it will still regularly crash when exiting a menu, or after saving the game.

I would not reccommend you buy the steam version of it only due to these horrible compatibility problems (apparently the GOG version works much better).

STEAM FINALLY FIXED IT!

Got an 1oo mb update today and the game now runs on my windows 10 64 bit pc - awsome!

Still some bugs left - the game crashes every time when i pause it (and occasionally says my video card doesn't have enough ram for the settings I am using. - but I hardly doubt that! :D ).

Do NOT, but either the Steam or GOG versions of this game. Reason is because these versions wern't optimized for 64bit OS's. My advice is to go down to a guide which I will paste here so you can install and play this properly. Other than that this is an amazing game but after some configuration you can make this game look even better than it is shown in the screenshots.

Back in the hay day of Lucas Arts, a majority of their games for PC were cutting edge, wether it be first person shooter, space flight sim, or real time strategy. One has to admit, modern day gaming in the year 2016 ows a heck of a lot to Lucas arts. This particular title brings back memories. I thought to myself, dang this is cool, the dramatic music and the suspence of the Dark Jedi looming. This game actualy had a 6 year old kid crying in fear after playing, mind you it was 1997 and he was just a child. Times have changed, software and hardware have improved by leeps and bounds, yet old games still exist. There lies the conundrum...will it work on my modern PC? Will Steam rip me off again?...perhaps, but contrary to the negative reviews about the game not running, I dissagree. This game, much to my shagrin, runs great even in high res. Go figure, considering Rogue Squadron won't run for ♥♥♥♥♥. If any one vould help me to get Rogue Squadron running, much appreciation.

After several years of this game being completely broken on Steam, Disney Interactive has stepped up and released a patch.

Despite the fact that it predates their acquisition, despite the fact that it probably isn't a huge money maker, they did this. For that, they've earned my respect.

Before the patch, the game didn't work in fullscreen properly, the music was entirely missing, and was highly prone to crashing. The update has fixed all of these issues. There are still issues with 3D Acceleration mode, limiting you on the color depth, but I'm hoping those will be fixed as well.

Beyond the technical aspects, my review of the game follows:

This is an old game. It is not a pretty game, and it is not a polished game. It is a very good game for the time, and if you either grew up with it, or can go back and appreciate classic titles, it is well worth full asking price, let alone sale price. I grew up with the Jedi Knight series, so I'm applying a heavy helping of rose-tint nostalgia paste to my goggles.

That said, it is still a fun, though at times puzzling and confusing game. It's from that era of shooters where we were just starting to experiment with platforming elements and puzzles, and as a result, it can get very frustrating on both.

Quicksave is your friend, you will need it. The Medium and Hard difficulties are brutal, par for the course at the time. Those of you who grew up with 90s-early 2000s PC shooters know what to expect, and the game is a blast if you enjoy that kind of run-and-gun gameplay.

The story is fairly cheesy, read the accompanying novels, if you can find and stomach them, as they shed light on a lot of details the game glosses over.

Overall, before the update, I probably would only recommend this to hardcore fans of the series, but now that it works out of the box, I think I can recommend it for anyone who's interested in the history of the series or PC gaming in general.

Quick and fun classic. Requires a bit of homework to get running on modern systems but is worth the effort. Feels a bit clunky at times but you get used to it. Weapon choices are cool but many go unused. Lightsabre fighting seemed novel, though duels, while interestingly breaking up gameplay, felt a bit slapdash. Force powers were similarly cool, sometimes clunky. The FMV cinematics between every level were a combination of awesome and cheesy, much like the story itself. Sadly the music seems to have been gutted from this version, and little bits of lore are lost on the loading screens because the game loads so fast. Worth a play if you like Star Wars.

I`ve played this game for my whole childhood and today it is still a great game. In my opinion is One Of the bests of Star Wars franchise.
Only thing that really disapoints me is the fact that ain`t no PT-BR audio/translation as it was on the original from 1997.
Beside that, it is indeed the same game and is a great experience and story if you don`t mind the old graphics and playability.

Avant toute chose ne pas se fier à mon nombre d'heures, injouable sur steam j'ai opté pour une version modifiée qui passe même sur Win 10 avec une pletolde de mods graphiques rendant le truc un peux plus digeste et jouable.

||||||Merci Steam d'ailleurs pour des versions non optimisée de la plupart de vos oldies||||||

Dark Force 2 fais parti des jeux Lucasarts qui restera dans les annales "des tres bon jeux estampillé Star Wars", a l'instar de Jedi Knight 2, la série des Xwing et Tie Fighter et autre jeux de l'age d'or Lucasarts! Le background prend place durant la guerre civile contée dans la trilogie originale ( qui as dit la meilleur??? ).

Vous jouez le rôle de Kyle Katarn, un mercenaire a la solde de l'alliance rebelle, dans le lore de l'ancien univers étendu, vos etes celui qui récupère une partie des plans de l'étoile de la mort. Vous etes accompagnée par votre fidèle amie Jan Ors, séduisante pilote! En plus d'etre un mercenaire notre bon vieux Kyle est très sensible à la force, et au potentiel pour etre un chevalier Jedi.

Cherchant à découvrir le responsable de la mort de son père, Kyle s'aventure dans un périple semé d'embuche, un puissant seigneur sith du nom de Jerec recherche la vallée des Jedi, un très ancien site ou la force est omniprésente, afin de creer une armée de dark Jedi pour enfin anéantir l'alliance rebelle.

Côté technique, a l'époque de sa sortie le jeu a eu un énorme succès, grace à un scénario intéressant et fidèle à cet univers tellement vaste qu'est Star Wars, et des graphismes a tombés, les nostalgiques se souviennent de cette bonne vielle 3DFX qui faisait tourner les jeux en 3D avec des niveaux de détails époustouflant pour l'époque.

Bon c'est un FPS de l'époque, si on retire le scénario ça reste un bete shooter comme doom et son ancêtre Dark Forces, comme je le dis plus haut la force de ce jeu réside dans son background accrocheur, le jeu et ponctuaient de nombreuses scènes cinématiques en FMV avec acteurs réels ( très rependu dans les années 90).

Les musiques issues des films rendent l'immersion totale, on est vraiment plongé dans le jeu, igname tout le jeu est doté de voix pour les amis comme pour les ennemis, ça renforce l'immersion.

Les graphismes quoique viellons sont très détaillé, avec les mods adéquats, c'est joli même pour un jeu de 19 ans, d'ailleurs il fêtera ses 20 ans l'année prochaine.

Il n'est pourtant pas sans défauts, l'IA n'est pas top, les ennemis ne bougent pas beaucoup et ça reste du tir au pigeon, et les niveaux sont parfois chiants à explorer, trouve cette cle rouge pour ouvrir la porte rouge ( Doom sort de ce corps).

Les possibilités de force sont très limitée et pour la débloquer obligation de trouver les endroits secrets.

Dark Forces 2 est genial, c'est une valeur sur même après 20 ans, ça restera un bon FPS et jeu star Wars, je ne peux que conseiller ce jeu! Par contre opté pour la version Gog plus stable et optimisée, mais il faut sacrifier la version Française, mais avec un peu de recherche il y a moyen de trouver les fichiers adéquats.

Foncez!

Note globale: 18/20

I wish I could recommend this. I've thought about buying this game many times, and have just now done so. It runs like absolute crap on modern systems, if you can get it to run at all. I spent more time troubleshooting fixes than playing. When it does work, it seems like a great game. I hear the GOG version runs pretty well on modern machines, and I intend to find out. If you do take a chance and get this, I hope it works for you.


Edit: I bought the GOG version. It works just fine. Great game, crappy Steam version. Won't be buying any older games on Steam anymore.

Dated graphics, but to be honest, they were dated when the game was new.
The level design and story made up for that. When all we had was run-and-gun FPSes Jedi Knight gave us a rich story driven single player mode with complex vertigo-inducing level design.

It's well past it's sell by date now, but it still deserves to be remembered fondly for the great game it was. That there was something unique and worthy that filled in the gap between Quake and Half-Life. Another in-house classic from LucasArts.

Actual Game
- The game is a great throwback game and still is fun to play. Fun weapons, good level design, sense of overall progression, varied environments, and those CG cutscense. Regarding the game itself, it is still a lot of fun in 2015.

Performance
The main reason people will ding this. I have experienced:
- Regular crashing. 30-40% of the time I save my game or it is loading into a new level. Or even coming out of the menu. Hard crash to desktop.
- CG scenes are in a tiny window(ed mode). The rest of the game doesnt do this. This is just a sign of the tech at the time.
- My main game runs in a full screen windowed mode for some reason. I have gotten used to it, but it is weird.

Ill give it a thumbs up for actual gameplay, but keep in mind compatibility issues.

Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II was one of my favourite games as a kid and while it's great to see that it's available for puchase on Steam and wouldn't really recommend it, unless you don't mind doing some modding before actually playing the game, because this version is missing the music and it tends to crash quite often (even just for checking out the Options in-game).

I mean, for crying out loud, I had to delete one of the executables in the game's folder to launch the game.

I highly recommend the game, since it's considered by many to be a classic (even if Outcast and Jedi Academy play WAY better), but the Steam version?

Wait for a discount, I say. Or get it from GOG, if you really want to play the game.

(Download the soundtrack before playing, don't miss out on the awesome soundtrack that the Steam version doesn't have! http://steamcommunity.com/app/32380/discussions/0/540740501398048712/)
(A really great guide for running on newer systems: http://jkdf2.com/)

It's a pity, really, that Jedi Knight tends to run badly on modern OSs. I don't recommend it for WIndows 8/10 PCs as it usually runs pretty badly. My WIndows 7 rig ran it without a lot of issues.

It's a pity, because the game is just absolutely fantastic. Levels are huge, but not empty, and make great use of verticality. The automap is great at showing you where you're supposed to go, and really gives you a much better idea of how big levels are.) There are a lot of nooks and crannies to explore throughout. The guns are satisfying, not great (Dark Forces I had better looking and feeling weapons IMO) , and the movement is really great, kinda like Quake's movement but with less momentum, handy, as JK tends to have more platforming and tight passages of which you don't want to fall out of. Force Powers are nothing special (This was before the prequel Trilogy, though), but some of them are well used in levels (especially Force Jump, but also Speed.) There are Dark Side (mostly damage-dealing) and Light Side (buffs/healing) It also has a lot of battles with Dark Jedi, but they're quite lackluster, since the lightsaber combat is pretty clunky.

The story consists mostly of live action cutscenes with some pretty cheesy acting, but pretty good overall (sadly, they run on what seems to be a 640x480 window on my PC, same as the menus.) The cool thing is that on about the last third of the game, you get locked into either Dark Side or Light Side. This will depend on how many innocents you've killed, and whether you invested in dark or light side force powers. Keeping mostly loyal to a side gives you a special force power (Protection/Deadly Sight.) I should probably play the game again to Force Lightning the hell of out everyone :)

If you run on Windows 7 or older you might be fine. 8 or 10, give it a try! It's too great a game to pass on just because if "might" not run well on your rig.

Do not buy this game, you are paying for a broken product that does not work.

It's been issue after issue with this, and hour or two spent trying to get it to fix and it still crashes after the first cutscene, despite several 'fixes'

Do not pay for this no matter how cheap Steam is selling it for, they are selling a product that doesn't work.

Well mine mostly seems to work OK anyway. Better to get this on GOG though to be sure it runs out of the box on any system.
Still had to add the missing music back, and used a few mods to make it better.

Cette évaluation négative ne porte pas sur le jeu lui-même (qui possède toujours un charme certain - je vais y revenir) mais sur la mise à disposition dans le magasin d'une version non adaptée à nos PC des années 2010. La version proposée est tout simplement celle de 1997 par ailleurs amputée de la bande originale. Ce manque est en tout point regrettable car le jeu perd énormément en force (c'est le cas de le dire) sans la partition magnifique de John Williams.
En l'état, jouer à Dark Forces II est très problématique (je vous renvoie aux messages des joueurs dans le forum du jeu pour vous faire une idée) ; il faut consentir à tremper les mains dans la tripaille des fichiers pour essayer de le configurer sur sa machine et avec un peu de chance, réussir à y jouer sans trop de grosses concessions au confort. Pour ma part, je n'ai eu qu'à subir des plantages systématiques lors de chacune de mes sauvegardes manuelles.
Voilà pour le gros point noir de cette édition !

Dark Forces II reste toujours l'un des jeux les plus emblématiques de la série Star Wars et l'un de mes plus fort souvenirs de joueur PC. Je dispose toujours d'ailleurs de la boîte cartonnée avec les 2 CDs et le manuel achetée 199 francs en 1998...
De Dark Forces, il reprend le personnage central, Kyle Katarn mais toute la partie technique est repensée à l'aune des avancées technologiques de la fin des années 90 : accélération graphique, rendu sonore, 3D intégrale.
Ce qui a fait la force de ce jeu, c'est l'apparition (pour la première fois) du sabre laser, l'intégration de cinématiques filmées dans le pur esprit Star Wars, une architecture des niveaux très bien conçue, une musique inoubliable.
Aujourd'hui, la magie peut toujours opérer mais toutes les conditions ne sont pas réunies ici pour que l'on puisse jouir pleinement de ce jeu.
