Sure the graphics are outdated, but you don't play this game for the graphics, it's all about the story, the setting and letting your imagination run wild.
From vehicles in the desert to iconic music and locations, this game has it all.
Explore the wonders of the Force as you learn the ways of the Jedi, then abandon it all for the true power: GUNS. That annoying sith warrior keeps killing you? Bomb him to oblivion, Stormtoopers? Shoot them with bigger guns. It works to certain extent, but guns are no match to the higher level sith warriors you face late game. It's just great and so refreshing to have the option to use different weapons. :)
Enter Darth Vader's castle in Vjun ad fight your way through.Then feel like a badass when you finally get good with the lightsaber. Combat is amazing and truly evokes the feeling of being a Jedi.
It brought up a constant feeling of wonder. Temples, deserts, forests, space stations, frozen wastes. The galaxy is yours to explore as you complete missions on your way to earn the title of Jedi Knight. This is a great game and I enjoyed it very much. I hope that we can see a new entry in this series soon. If you like Star Wars, this is a must. If you're an RPG fan like me, this is grade A right here.

This game has the BEST Lightsaber combat you will ever endure in any Star Wars Game yet to date.

The story actually takes place after The Galactic Civil War, thus, meaning that their are EU characters starring in this game which may stray some average Star Wars fans away. But other than that, the game offers a plentiful story and some recognizable characters to say the least, and Kyle Katarn, the cocky but wise Jedi whom was the protagonist in Jedi Outcast.

I could go on and on about this game, but honestly if you know a bit of the EU enough to tolerate most of the characters in the game, pick it up. If you'd like to have a fresh new experience on a game that features very impressive lightsaber combat even in today's standards, pick it up.

I loved this game long ago; the singleplayer is as novel and interesting as everyone attests and the vanilla muliplayer is great couch-versus fun. With the mod MovieBattlesII, it is now essentially the best Battlefront-esque game you can play with a small and fairly active group of veterans and casuals to test your mettle against.

The mod overhauls the vanilla saber combat into a really deep and intuitive new system which is unforgiving to newbies but very satisfying to learn the secrets and techniques. The extended duels always make me feel like I'm in an actual lightsaber battle, even when I lose my head (literally!).
Each side also has 6(!!!) other classes with guns, including jetpack-equipped Mandolorians and Droidekas. But sabers is why I still play.

Give it a go, it hasn't disappointed in 13 years.

Literally one of the best Star Wars games every made. I'm convinced that if this game had been made with the same vision but with todays tech and knowledge, this could certainly be a masterpiece of gaming. It's a little rough around the edges given the era it was made, but honestly I've yet to find any game that makes me feel like as much of a jedi as this one.

Plus there's nothing like playing with friends and force choking them while you slowly lower them into a pit of doom

10/10

Clunky as hell. I so wanted to like this game because it's focused, as far as I can tell, almost exclusively on Jedi combat, but the mechanics are awful.

Best Star Wars game ever? It's a decent argument with KOTOR but I feel like this game can stand next to anything in the SW franchise and go toe to toe. The story line is engaging and you really have the freedom to build your character the way you would like. While it might seem choppy to kids today I remember being amazed by the lightsaber work in this game and despite your feelings on the smoothness you can have a good time with these mechanics. Pulling off combos with the force powers/lightsaber is really fun and rewarding. Bought this on console recently and it's almost as fun which is a testimate to the quality of this game.

This game amazing . it's old but amazing. The campaign took me 11-12 hours to complete it was on normal. and died once at the final boss. and took me an extra 1.5h to go back and choose dark side. and complete it. wether you choose bad or good side. you will find an amazing gameplay.

9/10 . Download Movie Battles mode. to enjoy more.
