The lives system will leave you shouting at your monitor, and the lack of mouse look will have you cursing the name of auto aim. Apart from those small niggles, Dark Forces plays just has good as it did 20 years ago, and provides a nice amount of challenge to those wanting to beat an Old School FPS

Devo's Seal of Approval?:
Absolutely. Fans of retro 1st person shooters shouldn't miss this nostalgic inducing, challenging, pixel art title. Considering this game was made over 20 years ago, it's held up remarkably well, and in my opinion is better than Doom.


PROS
  • Captures the essence of Star Wars in a way that even George Lucas ("The Maker") couldn't capture with the prequel trilogy,
  • Beautiful level design inspired by classic movie locales,
  • A wide range of interesting weapons,
  • Classic Star Wars characters, including a brief appearance by Boba Fett!!!
  • Lots of Stormtroopers, Imperial Officers, Mouse Droids & Gamorean Guards,
  • If you played this as a child, get ready for nostalgia overload,
  • Classic Star Wars to the core,

CONS
  • No Y-axis mouse control,
  • Becomes quite cheap towards the end of the game, particularly on the last level,
  • Some unintuitive puzzles,
  • I personally couldn't get Steam Overlay to work,
UPDATE please see @Kill-Cam Celebrity's comments dated 9th of March 2016 for a detailed workaround regarding the steam overlay issues. The review remains unchanged because this is only a work-around, and not a straight-forward one at that. Big thanks to @Kill-Cam Celebrity for providing this.

CONCLUSIONS...


"Look how old you've become". BUT WHO CARES! YOU'RE STILL AWESOME! What a great visit to my childhood. This classic Star Wars experience, heavily inspired by the original trilogy, is a morsel of gaming history. In thier glory days, LucasArts really did excel at game development, and they hit all the right beats with this title too...on so many levels.

Revisiting this game after 20 years really highlights how much of the original trilogy LucasArts packed into this experience. From the classic enemies and weapons, to the incredible level design and vistas. It was great fighting Stormtroopers on a level whose interior was inspired by the Corellian Corvette from Episode IV, and undertaking a platform puzzle while jumping between pillars which look remarkably like the Death Star tractor beam controls.

This game brought back so many memories from my early days of PC gaming, and I thuroughly loved it. I can't wait to "hook into" the rest of this series, and i'll definately be plaing Dark Forces again in the future.

3 Why did they even bother? Oh wait...they didn't, so niether should you.
4 I wouldn't play this unless I was really, really desperate, or the biggest fan alive.
5 While there are some interesting aspects of this title, there are just too many faults to recommend it to anyone.
6 An "average" title which has some redeeming qualities, however, be warned that it also has its fair share of flaws...
7 A good game and it probably shouldn't be missed by fans of the series or genre, but be warned there are better games out there which are more deserving of your time and money.

A must-have game for all diehard fans of Star Wars saga, classic FPS.

The storyline in Dark Forces follows Kyle Katarn, a mercenary employed by the Rebels to recover the plans to the Death Star. The rest You have to find out by yourself playing the game.
