Om dette spillet

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

So a couple months ago, this game got patched with some of the fixes from the GOG.com version, including fullscreen menu support and restoring the music for those without optical drives or the original CDs. The gameplay's janky as heck compared to Jedi Outcast/Academy, but at least folks looking for a late 90's nostalgia fix won't require* a million and a half hacks any more to run it on a modern OS.

* -Though at most, I'd recommend at minimum dgVoodoo2 to enable 3D acceleration and the JK HUD mod to be able to see your health/armor/ammo at higher resolutions.

The game fast forwards you a few years into the future from the previous game (Dark Forces), and it now takes place after the events of Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi.
The game puts you right back into the shoes of Kyle Katarn, but this time, with a twist.
After the death of the Emperor, a new threat is trying to take throne.
A Dark Jedi named Jerec is not only trying to become the Emperor, but he has also killed your father, and because of this, you are out for revenge.
After receiving your first lightsaber, you get a choice: Do you follow the path of the Light Side of the force, like your father always wanted you to, or do you subcumb to the Dark Side?    (You also get a different ending depending on which side you take)
The game also features some small RPG elements with features like Skill-trees.

This is where some problems arise however.....

The game has many flaws: A lot of resolution issues, frequent crashes, corrupted save games and much more make for a very buggy experience.
Yet, the game still does feel very rewarding at times, and if you (frequently) turn a blind eye to these issues, the game can be very enjoyable.
The game has some very memorable characters and the live-action cutscenes do give these characters some more.... character!
Nonetheless, this to me does not completely make up for the fact that the game runs very poorly on a Windows 10 PC.
Besides this however, I do think that you should give this game a try, especially if you have already played Dark Forces.

All in all, STAR WARS™ Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II is a very memorable game, allbeit in some good and bad way,
Nonetheless, this game is a classic and any fan of the Jedi Knight series should definitely pick this game up.

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...

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.

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.
