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?

I used to play this game a lot when I was 8. As a kid who loved Star Wars and loved Doom, when this thing came out it was so hot. I only had the demo back then (which featured level 1) but I played that badboy about 200 times. I knew every secret and tactic there was for that level.

Fuelled entirely by nostalgia, over 15 years later, I saw this for sale for 89c and pounced on it. I fired her up... It appeared stuck in windowed mode and I started to panic. When the opening cutscene finished, it went into fullscreen. Relief washed over me in an awesome wave.

Suddenly, it all came rushing back to me. My hands guided me and I started moving like I knew exactly what to do... Then I realised the mouse aim was inverted and all the control bindings were odd. I fixed that up and then I was back on my feet. Even without the conscious appreciation of what I was doing, my hands and subconscious knew what to do:

There is an enemy around that corner. A secret weapon can be found down there. Look up and slash that vent with your lightsaber.

I was on fire. I finished the level on hard with 100% completion and no retries. Now I was in new territory. Despite the 8yo me playing level one ad nauseum, the demo had not allowed me to progress further....

Help guys. I'm stuck on level 2 now and it's hard.

Acid trip simulator 2015

Got it working properly after looking up a very easy solution to all these weirdly coloured textures being dragged across the screen. This was a rather great game, a timeless classic. I remember playing it for quite a while on my old computer back when Windows XP was quite a popular OS (RIP Windows XP, may you rest in peace sweet prince)

I'll just put the link here for anyone who would like their game to run properly. Same solution works for Dark Forces 2: Jedi Knight: http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1346269

It's a fantastic game, but this shameless release has some huge compatability issues. Don't expect to play without installing a battery of unofficial patches. If it's not going to run on a modern computer, they shouldn't sell it.

As with my review for Jedi Knight, Steam's version of Mysteries of the Sith has the same graphical/compatibility issues that JK does. If you want a decent, modern, updated version of this game download the GOG version. I don't mean to sound like I'm trash talking Steam, but if a competing company can take the same games, fix the compatibility issues and sell them for about the same price then something is wrong here.
