"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?

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Misteries Of The Sith * 6/10

"Kyle Katarn and his apprentice Mara Jade are..." Wait, what??? XD

Five Years have passed after Kyle defeated Jerec and his Six Disciples and now He's training a new Apprentice, Mara Jade, in a New Republic outpost. Imperial Forces will attack the place and Kyle will save the situation on his own. Later he will entrust the Republic assignments to Mara, while he will leave to investigate an abandoned Sith Temple.
In this Stand-Alone expansion You will control Kyle first during the Imperial assault, then You will Switch to Mara Jade. And this was a great surprise as Mara Jade is a very known and important character (the Future Wife of Luke Skywalker in what now is no more canonical expanded universe... Thank you Disney...).
If you already know Dark Forces II there's not much to say as it presents the same gameplay and issues. You can control a Jedi Knight with Force powers... Actually two of them. Anyways, The engine is the same, so the same bad-aged look made of low polygons characters and low textures maps, animations are the same coarse movements as seen in the previous game and the force powers control system is the same. Unfortunately there are no cinematics with real actors so everything is made with a pre-rendered version of the game engine. Unfortunately they've changed Kyle's voice as well. Anyways the most important aspect of this game are its maps. they're 14 against the 21 maps in Dark Forces II, but they're bigger, longer, more complicated with more puzzles, some of them very lethal, and a very difficult maze-like pattern, so it's quite easy to get lost without finding a way out, especially in the latest maps. And this is the aspect that makes this chapter quite frustrating, not to mention the puzzles with non-linear solutions (just like the final fight as well). Even though the story is quite important it's a bit superficial and a bit predictable, but still I consider this chapter important for the consequences in the saga.
Obviusly the original amazing soundtrack from John Williams will still accompany our adventures. Unfortunately, as in Dark Forces II, 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.
Since this chapter uses the same engine as in Dark Forces II you might run into the same issues, considering the age and the very low compatibility. Luckily the solutions are almost the same as in DFII, and you can find anything from the Steam Discussion Forum.

+++PROs+++
  • JEDI! We get to move and control not just a Jedi, but two of them with a lightsaber and force powers... And one of them is Mara Jade!
  • 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. Even though this chapter holds an important passage it's a bit predictable, and despite the title it doesn't explain much.
  • 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. This Expansion is way more tough than the predecessor, it's easy to get lost, some puzzles are quite difficult to solve and the latest maps are really REALLY tough. It requires very good observation and attention to details.

What a walk down memory lane. For the price you cant go wrong. Awesome old school starwars shooter right here. seems dated if you never played it in your youth, but if you did than its a nastalga filled classic!
10/10 GAME ON!!!

This is the only game in the Jedi Knight series that I never played as a kid. I have it here and haven't been able to get it to run, crashes in the first two minutes. In fact, I'd say it runs worse than Dark Forces II. Most unfortunate.

I love the game and all, but when it started playing Metallica I ♥♥♥♥ a brick. I then quickly realised it was actually playing music from the CD I had in my drive.

10/10 would rock out to Lepper Messiah on lvl 2.

In all seriousness. The game is buggy as all hell. It's understandable that it is an old game, but this would cause utter outrage on any respectable release so I see no difference here.

I would say buy the game to support the developers... but at this point I'm not sure where the money is going.

I'm still reccomending the game as there are fixes for the people who stillwant to experience this game in a propper manner. I didn't use any fixes to get the game running which is why I ran into this mildly satisfying bug.

Seriously tho, get ur ♥♥♥♥ together Disney.

Once you get this up and running on your modern PC, I think this old game is great fun with all the immediate shooting thrills of Doom plus some extra Jedi powers and and a bit of a plot.
Sometimes I just like to play a game without masses of complexity and enjoy the old school charm. Graphics don't matter with this type of game. The action is blisteringly fast and you get to use a light saber!

Why, why, why would you sell a game that doesn't work... CD, Colors, and other problems to figure out before I can play... boooo. Steam I would like some money back or a fix from you in a patch for this game, thanks... a paying player!

This is a puzzler, 100%.

It may look like an FPS (though you can play in third person), but it's a labyrinthian puzzler. Not just that, but a ridiculously hard one. The aim of the game is to find little nooks and crannys, do specific things in specific places to reach certain unseen spots, find certain keys and open locks in a certain order etc. to progress.

If you go into this as an action or FPS game, you might get through the nice opening level, but that's it. Most kids (heck most adults) who played this didn't get past the second level, which as well as being full of hidden passageways is incredibly dark. This is repeated throughout the rest of the game. No Dark Forces II gameplay here.

To sum it up perfectly, there are even YouTube video guides where the uploaders get confused as to where to go for several minutes. The rest of the time they look like they're breaking the game or cheating but are indeed following the route they're suppoed to.

Even ignoring the gameplay and awful level design, the plot and characters are more unlikeable.

Kyle Katarn returns, though no longer in his handsome FMV form, but via in in-game cutscenes and now rocking a terrible goatee. In fact his whole character has changed. He now speaks nasally and says cheesy things ("gravity is a harsh mistress" *snort*). The force has turned him into an internet forum mod.

The plot itself is lazy. You initially play as Kyle and go on a bit of a Rambo errand. You would think this serves as a tutorial, but as mentioned above it turns pretty unfriendly after the first level. So Kyle does his shtick for a few levels, then he goes off to investigate a Sith temple he's found. You can guess what happens. You then take control of Mara Jade, who just does a couple more Rambo errands as filler before she eventually goes straight to the temple to find Kyle and finish the plot that had been abandoned.

The temple is very creepy, and the finale is nicely thought out, it's just a shame you won't see any of it without cheats and a guide and a LOT of time, patience and repetition.

Dont buy this game, even for "May the Fourth be with you!" the controls are terrible, the graphics are sub-par for a game in the mid-90s and the game is boring as watching a speed contest between a snail and paint drying!

Mysteries of the Sith is a pretty terrific game. I played the demo years ago and forgot about it until now. Here's my breakdown of MotS:

PROS
+ Awesome Storyline
+ Challenging Enemies
+ Smooth Gameplay
+ Can be run on a potato
+ There are Graphical Improvement mods available!

CONS
- Weird (possibly bugged) saber system
- Outdated Graphics
- Steam Overlay doesn't work
- Mods are needed to play Online
- Full Screen only works in-game. Shrinks to window for cutscenes, menus, etc.
- Poorly-excuted cutscenes
- Contains some of the worst voice acting imaginable

My Rating: 7/10 (Recommended)

The game itself, I enjoy. Cool level designs that encourage exploration, good weapons, fun story, etc. If you've played any of the other Jedi Knight games you know what you're getting into. From what I've seen this definitely the weakest link in the Jedi Knight series but not by much.

This particular release, however, I can not recommend.
To be honest the release is trash. Music is missing, thing won't even run properly or at all without having to find a bunch of fixes. Literally asks for a CD if you don't have a CD drive so you'll at least need a virtual drive. The epitome of lazyness. I've heard people defend it because it's "old", but if it's old, the proper thing to do is not re-release it at all or provide fixes (which obviously exist if you search the forums here) to make it playable on modern hardware that purchasers are going to play on. In short, that fine print in the system requirements is there for a reason and you would do wise to take it seriously.

If you're willing to jump through hoops in order to play this game, get it, but get it on sale. If you want a game you can just install and play, look for something else.

Новая история Кайла Катарна, прошло 5 лет с победы над Джереком, Кайл заматерел и даже завел себе падавана - Мару Джейд (вполне себе книжный персонаж, появилась в книжной трилогии Тимоти Зана, который по заказу Lucasfilm, написал продолжение Звездных войн). Единой сюжетной линии, как таковой нет, большинство из 14 миссий начинается или с "Хьюстон, у нас проблемы...", или "Иди туда не знаю куда...", все тайны Ситхов заключены в последних 3 миссиях, в которых Маре предстоит, вразумить своего наставника, обратившегося к темной стороне. Если в предыдущих 2 играх серии, в основном был экшен, то в этой упор сделан на лабиринты в которых можно блуждать…блуждать…"О! Вот эта трещина/труба/пульт/кнопка….", что здорово снижает общую играбельность. Стоит отдельно отметить джедайские навыки, их подточили, сделали обязательными для прохождения игры (особенно последние 3 уровня). Вообщем игра больше для поклонников серии, чем для любителей экшена.

Дополнение для Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. И что удивительно, редко когда встретишь дополнение лучше оригинала. В этот раз так и произошло. Дополнен арсенал, расширены и добавлены способности.
Управление и применение силы теперь удобные, расположены на Q E F, а не на F1-F8.
В начале продолжаем играть за Кайла Катарна, а в дальнейшем за его ученицу и будущую жену Люка - Мару Джейд.
Из минусов: нет кинематографических вставок. Когда ты играешь за даму, боты по-прежнему кричат "He's here!" и "It's him!".
Однозначно играть.

Devo's dropping the mike...AGAIN!

Disclaimer: I am a huge Star Wars fan, and have played this game a lot as a child/teenager, so as my foot note points out (see the bottom of my review pages), this review may be biased.

Title Information

Developer LucasArts
Publisher LucasArts

Ratings
Category Score
Story 7/10
Single Player Gameplay 9/10
Multiplayer Gameplay 9/10
Graphics & Art Style 7/10
Replayability 6/10
Overal Rating
7/10
(See bottom of the page for ranking descriptions)


Devo's Seal of Approval?:
Yes, but only by association. If you enjoyed Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, don't miss this expansion, however, be warned that the the level design (which in my opinion is one of the aspects of this series which pass the test of time) is not quite as epic, with the majority of locales taking place in settings which don't resemble those from the original trilogy quite as much. Additionally, cut-scenes are rendered in-engine and draw attention to how out-dated the graphics are.


PROS
  • Has interesting gameplay elements and story progression points which pay homage to Return of the Jedi,
  • More great gameplay identical to the main title,
  • A meaty single player experience which lasts as long as the main title,
  • New enemies, some of which are truly superb (cough...RANCOR...cough),
  • New weapons,
  • New Force powers,

CONS
  • Poorly executed cut-scenes make it hard to become engaged in the story,
  • The level design is not as aesthetically pleasing as the main title,
  • There aren't as many encounters with Imperials as I would have preffered,
  • Steam overlay didn't work,
  • Issues with resolution and full-screen settings are still present in the expansion (as they were in the main title - see my Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II review for more details) and the game can be unstable at times,


CONCLUSIONS...

The same great single player experience is still there with additional characters, weapons and Force powers, however, this expansion didn't feel as polished as the main title, with somewhat uninspired level aesthetics and poorly executed cut-scenes.

With that being said, if you enjoyed Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight, you shouldn't miss this expansion...and what a sizeable expansion it is - the single player experience included is just as long as the main title! Beware of difficulties getting this running at 1080p however (more so than the main title), and at times it can be a little unstable.

This game is pretty fun. The grapich is not that good but it is from 1998 so what do you expect? It has big problems on working with newer computers. I spend a day trying to fix it and I did it. And I felt it was worth it. I will recommend this game to a big Star Wars fan. I don`t think others will enjoy it that much, or finish it
+Really good level design
+ Story is okay

-Compatibility issues
-Voice acting

Really hard to reccomend. Level design is bonkers, just like most Jedi Knight games, but the gameplay is really fun.

I played these games heavily as a child and have fond memories of many of the events of JK and the Mysteries of the Sith. Upon revisting JK, I was filled with joy to find that it hadn't aged quite as poorly as I'd expected. The run and gun mechanics still work, the levels are well-designed and expansive, and even the puzzles can at least be reasoned out. I feel the bland story and characters are buoyed by the fun, campy FMV cutscenes, giving the game a B-movie feel. The lightsaber battles are a little janky and un-fun at this point, but few games are perfect.

In playing Mysteries of the Sith, I found all of the levels I rememberly fondly; however, the feeling with this expansion is completely different. Practically everything in this game feels an order of magnitude more frustrating. The story falls flat, meandering around a bunch of unrelated events until it fizzles out at the end. The characters are worse, Mara being painted as reckless, illogical, and sometimes downright distasteful. Kyle, for whatever your opinion of him was before this game, was at worst a bland, uninspired character. Suddenly, this game turns him into a paper-thin, boring villain for no reason other than need of a climax.

The puzzles have suddenly become several times more obtuse. If you thought Dark Forces was hard to figure out, buckle up. The level design feels like an afterthought. These feel like throw-away levels from JK, possibly explaining why the story feels like an afterthought. The worst part of their design is the constant hiding of the way forward behind grating in the dark corner of a hallway halfway to a dead end. All of this is pretty bad, but the last two levels take the cake. The game spends thirteen levels with scarcely a single use for the lightsaber other than a glorified wire cutter before immediately removing use of all weapons other than it. Two needlessly long levels filled with non-stop ambushes by enemies that can kill you in two hits on easy? Surely, this was top-shelf game design in its day. I merely squeaked through these levels by slowly spamming saber-throw for a lack of a better way to defeat most of the cheaper enemies.

I can understand that JK hasn't aged greatly, and my nostalgia for it certainly elevates my opinion of it. However, it stands as a solid, if forgettable, FPS game set in the Star Wars universe. Mysteries of the Sith is more akin to a steaming mess that reeks of horrific, likely rushed design choices resulting from a desire to cash in on the success of JK.

Больше игры провёл в открывании дверей, чем в бою.
Пожалуй буду звать эту игру "Симулятор дверей"
Здесь - ты редко будешь воевать
Здесь - правит царь дверей
Здесь - калитка это противозаконно
Здесь - дверь это всё
10 дверей из 10
