About This Game

"I have chosen my destiny, and it lies here..." - Kyle Katarn

It is five years after Kyle's victory over the seven dark Jedi. Invading Imperial forces advance upon a quiet Rebel outpost, interrupting Kyle's training of a brave new Jedi, Mara Jade. First introduced in Timothy Zahn's award-winning Star Wars novel, Heir to the Empire, Mara Jade blends her past experiences as a one time smuggler and Emperor's Hand with her apprenticeship as a Jedi Knight. Armed with four new weapons and five new Force powers, Mara must secure supplies desperately needed by the New Republic while Kyle, believing it a part of his destiny, pursues the secret treasures shrouded in an ancient Sith temple.

Can the New Republic's boldest female Jedi protect the Rebel base, negotiate with Ka'Pa the Hutt, then ward off a phalanx of enemies?

Will the ancient secrets of the Sith unleash new powers?

Are Kyle and Mara strong enough to resist the temptations of the dark side, or will new entanglements seduce them?

This game got my attention after I got Jedi Outcast. I think the graphics have aged, but at least the graphics are in 3D, and I think this game has an amazing story, just like all the games in the series.

P.S. I noticed that all the colors might get screwed up and become purple and green and orange, but all you have to do is run around shooting and swinging your lightsaber.

I definitely recommend this game.

This is one of the best games in the Lucasarts catalogue. Mysteries of the Sith is park of the Dark Forces series, which usually starred Kyle Katarn but in this you play as Mara Jade later on which is a nice change.

One of the main reasons I enjoy this a bit more than the previous standalone Kyle Katarn installments is because it feels different, not a copy paste entry. Mara is on a mission to find Kyle and it seems that he has fallen to a less than light path. The latter levels add an eerie element, as you traverse through Sith laced catacombs, which is a welcome change and it's always intresting when the lore of the Sith is included in a game. I've not personally played a game that's really focused on that and gave off a slightly spooky feeling, since the first time you land on Korriban in the amazing Knights of the Old Republic I.

The weapon roster is fun, Mara's Jedi powers are enjoyable to play and we see parts of the SW universe not seen before. I have replayed this game so many times when I was younger and still come back to it. Also...purple lightsabre wooo!

Incompatable with WIndows 8 and most modern hardware. Steam is selling a brocken game and should be ashamed of themselves. The game looks fun but most of the old Star Wars games dont run on modern systems and they have no intentions of updating them.

Perhaps one of the worst game i know. 25 points for being a Star Wars game and me being a big fan. Totally awful level design, annoying and boring levels, clumsy execution and also little buggy. Totally frustrating and too long. Game is also little cryptic having very stupid and strange solutions for getting forward. Do not buy nor play. Horrible.

I can't really recommend this game yet because I haven't gotten it to even launch -_-
It gave me some sort of error about my display not being correct.
And yes I have DosBox installed, obviously a game this old wouldn't normally run on Windows 8.
