Le premier volet de la série des FPS Jedi Knight est sorti en 1995 pour MS-DOS.
Le joueur incarne Kyle Katarn, un transfuge de l'Empire qui loue désormais ses services pour la République comme mercenaire (en compagnie de Jan Ors, la pilote de son vaisseau, le Faucon).
MS-DOS donc émulation via DosBox. Il faut penser à le configurer un peu ; j'ai choisi le mode fenêtré (car cela chatouille un peu trop les yeux en plein écran) sans trop lisser les textures pour retrouver le rendu de l'époque. De plus, je ne suis pas convaincu par les améliorations graphiques qui sont proposées aujourd'hui.
A la différence de Doom ou des FPS de l'époque, le scénario n'est pas un prétexte au bourrinage ; les quatorze missions sont présentées avec des objectifs à remplir et l'histoire est solide (quelques clins d'oeil aux fans de l'univers avec Dark Vador et Jabaa en guest-stars).
Les niveaux sont très bien conçus et variés, certains labyrinthiques et demandent parfois un peu de réflexion pour résoudre les énigmes à base de clés à récolter et de boutons à activer (un poncif de l'époque).
La difficulté repose sur trois niveaux sans point de sauvegarde mais avec une gestion de "vies" ; si le premier est une promenade de santé à réserver aux néophytes du FPS (le jeu est d'ailleurs une excellente initiation au genre), le dernier est parfois bien tendu.
Jedi Knight Dark Forces est en tout point recommandable et mérite encore le détour aujourd'hui.

DISCLAMER: At the time of writing this review, I have 2 hours on the game. In reality I have much more, but I played it in offline mode because of traveling.

At first, I was gonna make this a stupid "Hurrr durrr this Star Wars and Doom 420/69" type of review. However, I really do believe a great game like this deserves an actual Pro/Con review. That being said, be prepared for lots of Pros.

Pros
+ The environments of this game are some of the best I've ever seen in an FPS. They are all unique and encourage exploration, which makes every level memorable.
+ Lots of different enemies, all faithful to the Star Wars lore. You've got your Stormtroopers, Commanders, Probe Droids, Dark Troopers and many more.
+ Lots of memorable characters from the Star Wars universe. Mon Mothma, Boba Fett, and even Jabba the Hutt are all there.
+ The guns are also all faithful to the Star Wars lore (You might even find a few in other SW games), and are really fun to use as well. Thermal Detonators, Repeaters, Fusion Cutters, and even the Imperial blaster rifle are all super cool and fun.
+ Puzzles are thought out well, and are at that just right difficulty that you wont find too hard or easy.
+ SECRETS.
+ Every mission has its own briefing, which tells you exactly what you need to know, no bullcrap.
+ Story takes place just before and after the Episode IV, so a big plus for me and many others. And its also super cool because YOU ARE THE ONE WHO GETS THE DEATH STAR PLANS.
+ This is an FPS done well. Its so fun to blast the hell out of everyone. The gunplay is VERY fun.
+ Creative obstacles. No, really. There was one room that was pitch black, with 4 Stormtroopers. The only thing that created light were all the lasers flying around, sorta like flying flashlights.
+ You can use you fists to kill everyone. HOW BADASS IS THAT?

Cons
- The story. I mean there has to be a story, right? Except it feels so rushed and there's no point to it, because you only objective (except the level with the death star plans) is to stop the creation of Dark Troopers. Boring.
- The game is super short with less than a dozen missions, and lack of replayability makes it all the shorter.
- The ground feels like its ice, you keep slipping and sliding everywhere which makes it kinda hard to focus on a shot and do a bit of platforming.
- Lack of a manual. Thank Lord Vader for Steam guides, because it doesn't, ever, tell you the controls in the game.
- Obviously, everyone's con, the graphics. The game came out in 1995, and it has not aged well at all. If a younger gamer, or really any graphics fan picked this up, they might get turned off by the graphics. BUT THATS WHY I SAVED THE BEST FOR LAST. There is a mod for this game called DarkXL. It introduces lots of things like 1920x1080 resolution, rebindable controls, more options, being able to look up and down, a reticle, and it makes the game look fantastic.
If you're picking this game up, download this mod, its worth it.

This game gets a 9/10. If it had just been a bit longer, and if the story had been A BIT better, this would've been a solid 10/10.

Runs like an absolute dog.
Can't look up and down.
Barely any options.
Resolution so low it's hard to tell what's what.

Genuinely still a better game than Call of Duty.

You see, I always knew Kyle Katarn would be a jedi someday. You know why? It's pretty damn obvious... when he's around, stormtroopers can't aim worth ♥♥♥♥!
=====

Dark Forces... what is this? It's an FPS from the DOS and PS1. Don't back off the store page just yet, bear with me.

This game's very doom-style, mixing together 2D sprites with 3D terrain. You may also notice the way the X axis is locked, just like doom. But wait, what's this... what happens if I use PgUp/PgDown... oh ♥♥♥♥, I'm looking up and down! And there you have it. This is a doom-style that also allows jumping, crouching, and looking up and down. Have your fill of "innovation?" Good, now let's talk about what we all really care about-- gameplay.

If you haven't already guessed, it's a Star Wars shooter leading up to the events of the Star Wars: Jedi Knight franchise. You play as mercenary Kyle Katarn and it begins with a setting we'll recognize easily-- this is an imperial base. Go steal the plans to the Death Star. Then, the story takes a unique Extended Universe approach, as we follow the development of an Imperial super-soldier project, codenamed "Dark Troopers." Your missions are to go into various places and carry out the assignment given to you, as you go deeper into the project and try to put a stop to it.

The level design is great... it has a good balance of puzzles, firefights, raids, speedruns, and more as you plow through stormtroopers and Imperial officers, as well as the occasional robot. More than that, the levels themselves are very dynamic and overall, the use of elevators and moving platforms really add to the game. Multiple weapons can be found, from Blaster Rifles to Thermal Detonators to Imperial Heavy Repeaters, and the sprites/texturing are still at least decent. The game itself is completely solid, and visually it won't hurt to look at with the simple Imperial designs.

The only pitfall in this game is what the greedy ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s at LucasArts have done with it. According to George Lucas, slapping an outdated and incompatible DOSBox that isn't even properly configured counts as a proper "rerelease." The controls have been "updated," with WASD to move and... no vertical aiming on the mouse. Of all the things we needed, they left out the most important one and we'd be better off just using the damn arrow keys for movement! Anyway, there are guides you can read on how to fix these issues, don't let them stop you from playing this game. If you have any issues, check the bottom of this review for guides on how to update DOSBox, make it run better, and (optional) add controller support.

Overall: ♥♥♥♥ the 'rerelease,' 7/10. Game itself: 8.5/10, frantic FPS fun in the Star Wars universe with great level design.

Preferred Purchase Method: Star Wars Jedi Knight Collection
Get this amazing DOS era shooter as well as the critically acclaimed Jedi Knight franchise! While the rereleases for Jedi Knight 1 and Mysteries of the Sith are downright broken (a shame, JK1 is easily one of the greatest games of all time), you still get the amazing Jedi Knight 2 and 3 for about $8 less than you'd normally pay, if you don't count the broken JK1. Definitely still worth the buy for Dark Forces, JKO, and JA alone, all three are excellent single-player games with two of them working flawlessly on modern systems (widescreen is available via a console command).

This game manages to remind you why you got into gaming in the first place. The main reason for still being a lot of fun is the great level design, never too large or too small or overly complicated. The environment of the levels, the weapons and the enemies are quite varied too.
If you were there when it came out you should re-play it, after a level or two you'll tell why this game is still great and why most of todays single player fpses aren't.

Havent played it yet? If not, then go and play it! Of course everybody hates such graphics, but still, this game was made with heart. It is as simple as Doom and interesting as any Star Wars movie.
Reasons why should you at least try to play it:
  • Perfect plot for a Star Wars game
  • Perfect voicecast
  • Perfect soundtrack
This game deserves a gold medal!

9.5/10 must-play.
In this classic FPS you play as a scruffy nerf-herder of a smuggler in the Star Wars universe. The ultimate roguish badass Kyle Katarn will be defying the galactic empire, dealing with bounty hunters and running into characters we all know from the movies.
On a technical level, DF falls between Doom and Quake. The well laid out, dynamic, 3d maps are a joy, but great 90s graphics are still 90s graphics. Luckily the familiarity of the design and enemies will make up for that and draw you in. Not least it serves as the launching point for one of gaming's epic series.

I have over 2,500 hours into call of duty games, and after one 1 hour of this game, I've had more fun than all that time in call of duty.

Gameplay 8/10

Graphics 3/10

Fun off the charts

pros: fun, guns, punching abilities, you can look side to side.

cons: you can't look up or down, you can't kick, you can't use laser vision, there are no illuminated lizard nuns.


Would reccomend to all mankind and God. Make this available in efreeka for the childs that dwell in the mountains.

Star Wars Dark Forces is a FPS set during the events of the original Star Wars movie trilogy. In a nice surprise you don't follow the events of the movies but instead work as a mercenary for the Rebels. You are a mercenary called Kyle Katarn who is fully voice acted and seems to be in it for more than the money. In your travels you will discover that the Empire is working on a secret project to make Dark Troopers and it becomes your main reason for most of the missions. Along your travels you will encounter some familiar characters. Most will only appear in cutscenes and don't show up in game so don't go in expecting to be able to gun down Darth Vader.

Your journeys will take you to a wide variety of environments and nearly each one feels unique and introduce more and more enemies. Most levels are enormous and they will take you quite some time to beat. It's not just running and gunning though, there will be rather difficult puzzles and actual objectives like rescuing a hostage or stealing data and making a run for the spacecraft. It's a nice change from most FPS games of the time where your only goal is to reach the end of the level. As unique and varied as the levels are the actual level design can be very confusing at times. A considerable portion of my playtime comes from being at an utter loss of where I am supposed to head to next and it definitely impacts the game negatively.

Strangely Dark Forces does not allow you to save manually and the game will only save after you complete a level. You start off with three lives and can find more throughout the level though they are usually well hidden. If you see cracks on a wall it is likely you can blow it up and find some goodies. And my biggest gripe with this game is the amount of platforming you will be required to do. The controls do not feel tight enough for platforming and with the lack of quick saving it can truly be irradiating. Luckily the gun-play is top notch and there are a wide variety of weapons to dispose of your enemies. Some do share ammo like the pistol and the blaster which adds more strategy since you will have to decide if the situation is dangerous enough to use more ammo with the blaster. You can also punch out Stormtroopers or other enemies, which is very amusing to me but should be used as a last resort.

It is very true to it's source material having each gun sound exactly like in the movies, Stormtroopers shouting “Rebel scum!” and most of the music in Dark Forces are from the film but remade into MIDI format. I'm not sure if all the weapons are canon but this game does not feature lightsabers in case you were wondering. The story itself is mediocre and mostly told through cutscenes after or before missions. Most of the voice acting is surprisingly good especially Darth Vader and your character not being a generic mute protagonist is also appreciated. There is a nice sense of urgency as your enemies get more and more powerful as you progress through the story and you will definitely find out why the Rebels are so worried about the Empire's secret project. If you are having difficulty seeing remember that you have have night vision goggles which use up energy that you obtain by blowing up cleaning droids.

This version of the game has modern controls right out the box. You will be moving around with “wasd” and aiming with the mouse. Strangely you will not be able to look up and down using the mouse. There is no way to see the control scheme or rebind in game which is kind of annoying. Combat is fast paced and enjoyable. Most enemies have different means of attack like either shooting you or running toward you for a melee attack and it is very easy to tell an enemy apart allowing you to adapt and respond to a situation on the fly. A certain enemy in the sewer level stalks you from the sludge and boy, did they creep me out. When you pick up a powerup that doubles your rate of fire the game usually throws a large amount of enemies at you which is always a blast as you mow down all in your path and after all is said and done you will feel like the best darn mercenary money can buy.

Overall Dark Forces is a pretty fun game kept from greatness due to a few serious design decisions. The flaws of having confusing level design, no saving, and controls not suited for the sometimes fatal platforming is just too deadly a combination. It is still a good game don't get me wrong. I had a blast playing through it and seeing Stormtroopers being competent fighters for once. It is also pretty advanced for it's time featuring voiced cutscenes, level objectives and an actual story to back it up. It is not a must play for those of us that are not a fan of the films but it's still a decent old school shooter. Though if you like both the FPS genre and Star Wars you should definitely check out this title.

Even though this dates back to a couple years after the release of Doom, Dark Forces still offers some good gameplay and a good Star Wars storyline. While I recommend the game, it probably will only be enjoyed by Star Wars fans and those who originally played the game back in the 90s when it was released. While you can control the view with the mouse, I couldn't get it to look up and down, which made it difficult at times, though not too frustrating. The level design is good and the action is decent, and it brings back fond memories of playing this on my 486. As usual for any Star Wars game, great music and great audio.

Like any game this old, any recommendation is going to come with a lot of salt, and largely boils down to your personal tolerance level.

Dark Forces is basically Doom with a Star Wars wallpaper, though apparently it made a few technological improvements over Doom, such as the ability to have multiple floors on top of one another. This is just heresay on my part, I'm not a videogame historian.

The level design is fairly nonlinear and encourages plenty of exploration, but personally I found that the inability to look up and down (more than about 45 degrees either way, with really weird visual distortions) left me having only a vague idea that a floor was beneath my feet, which was incredibly disorienting and left me playing through most of the game with the transparent map screen plastered to my face (though I'll admit I found the way the map dynamically updated based on purely literal line of sight weirdly enthralling).

Like many FPSes, or indeed games of this age in general, the bosses ammount to little more than a single enemy that is both better at killing you and worse at dying. Can't really dock points there, it's not like you can expect elaborate boss mechanics in a game that slightly predates the notion of having to actually aim your gun at things.

While I still had enough fun to give this game a recommendation, do NOT try playing it without a walkthrough on hand. Many of the puzzles involve a sort of sideways moon logic that I never would have figured out on my own, even if I could fnavigate without staring at the map during firefights.
