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

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.

Задайте себе вопрос - сколько игр по "Star Wars" вы знаете, поиграли и даже прошли? А теперь задайте себе второй вопрос - вы прошли эту часть? Если ответ отрицателен во втором вопросе, то вы пропустили одну из веселых и очень безумных игр в этой серии. Зачем тратить свое время на эту игру? Ну первым аргументом конечно же будет не то, что у нас есть возможность джедайствовать полностью от первого лица, а то, что разработчики сделали самые запутанные, зрелищные и безумные локации. Локации большие, запутанные, набиты секретами, безумными стилями прохождения и просто колосальным дизайном. Что то подобное можно увидеть к примеру в серии игр "Half-Life", но тут полный хаос в этом плане. И это мне нравится.
Так что ребятки не боитесь, что игрушка конца 90-х. Да, графика, звук и гемплей не нового поколения. На момент релиза игра впечитляла своими возможностями. Если думаете, что этой игрушке нечем вас впечатлить, то дайте ей шанс. Даже если вы не фанат "Star Wars", такое безумие веселого геймдизайна жаль пропускать.

ПРОЙДЕНО 10/10 (ещё давно пройдено)
Да такое невозможно было представить в 1997 году, Lucas Arts проделала большой шаг в серии Звёздных Войн. Шутер + Файтинг с боссами да и не только. Но одно но, увы у некоторых может не пойти на современных компьютерах, так как оптимизация под современные компьютеры была заброшена, единственно может 100% запуститься на Win XP. Вообщем рекомендую, не пожалеете!

Особенности игры:
- год 1997;
- жанр FPS, слэшер;
- стиль олдскул;
- графика трёхмерная (приемлемая);
- движок "Sith";
- мир коридорно-аренный;
- сохранение в любой момент;
- сюжет подаётся между уровнями в виде видео.

Особенности геймплея:
- здоровье не регенерируется;
- броня не регенерируется;
- лимита на переносимое оружие нет;
- прокачка персонажа;
- боссы убиваются, найдя их уязвимости;
- ловушки (пропасти; лазеры; прессы; электричество; мины; турели; авиаудары);
- интерактивные объекты окружения (кнопки, переключатели для активации заблокированных дверей и различных механизмов; взрываемые цистерны для нанесения урона);
- бонусы (ключи для активации заблокированных дверей);
- секреты.

Недостатки:
- русский язык отсутствует в данном издании.

ИМХО: один из немногих трёхмерных шутеров до 1998 года ("Terminator: Future Shock (1995)"; "Quake" (1996); "Terminator: Skynet (1996)"; "Turok: Dinosaur Hunter" (1997); "MDK" (1997); "Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2" (1997); "Quake 2" (1997)); третий шутер (без учёта аркад, симуляторов и т. п.) из серии игр "Star Wars" после "Star Wars: Dark Forces" (1995) и "Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire" (1996); графика недостаточно отполирована (как и во многих трёхмерных шутерах до 1998 года); по ходу уровней часто приходится решать логические задачи (конвейеры, лифты и т. п.); шутер не привнёс новаторства ни в графике, ни в геймплее относительно момента выпуска, но в своей франшизе продолжил развитие.

Оценка: 5/5

P. S.: невысокая оценка пользователей (приблизительно 65%), в основном, связана не с самой игрой, а с низкокачественным её изданием, но ко времени покупки её мной было обновление, и многие баги исправили (устранена проблема несовместимости с "Windows 7 x64"; игра стала сразу открываться в полноэкранном режиме, а не в оконном; появилась музыка; инверсию мыши стало можно менять и т. п.).
