The graphics don't hold up compared to something like The Force Unleashed, but this game is still enjoyable to play. The ability to pick and choose certain missions gives you a little extra leeway in how you play the game, and what items you go into certain missions with. It even has two distinct endings, which is close to how many Mass Effect 3 had when it first came out. All joking aside, both endings do make sense in the context of the game and feel satisfying. The lightsaber combat can be a little BS sometimes, especially on higher difficulties, but whenever you have a good, long fight without randomly insta-dying, it's really satisfying and makes you feel like a Jedi.

7/10.

Released in 2003, and it still has the best Lightsaber combat of any game that came out since then.

It's probably fair to say that the single-player aspect of this game isn't as solid story-wise as its predecessors -- and I do recommend checking out the early incarnations of the Jedi Knight series -- but the reason for playing this game is in the action and friends.

YOU GET LIGHTSABERS. You are able to choose between Single, Dual or Staff, which is a first for the series. YOU GET FORCE POWERS, being able to pick and choose which ever powers are offered from both polarities of the Force. AND GUNS. Well, maybe not as exciting as the first two, but the some of the guns offered here are the sort of things that only the SW Universe offers and you'll be hard pressed to find similar items in other games.

But what really takes the cake on this game is if you are able to play online with a great group of friends. You will spend countless hours with them. There is a community that has stood by this game throughout the decade it has been around and I suspect they will be around for even longer. Much of the community functions in an RPG aspect where people will form their own groups and incorporate SW lore into their gatherings while other aspects of the community will focus on the skill of brandishing the lightsaber. Even further, there are countless mods offered to further enhance gameplay and your experience.

So yes! Buy and play this game. If you want to play this game however, you should do yourself the favor and play the previous games of the series so you are familiar with the lore and whatnot. It will make the experience much more rewarding once you arrive at this title.

Aside from the hours Steam shows here, I've must of put in another thousand hours or so that are not shown. I've played this game over a period of 8 years and finally felt that I had enough. But I left with many memories of the good times I had playing. This is the game of my teenage years.

For me this may be the Best Star wars game ever made,
you really get the feeling you are in star wars, even that this game takes place a few years after star wars VI.
the Storyline and Side missions are really great, and it's feels like it's an open world you are in.
The controls are simple and easy to learn. if you want to make special attacks (most used in MP)
then your keyboard will get a bit advanced since there are alot of special attacks you can do with the right combination of keys.
Multiplayer is really great too, for me Single players is the best and could maybe need COOP but that what's we have mods to do, Multiplayer never gets boring there are plenty of game modes to play. Like Team death match, Death Match, Duel 1vs1 2vs2 4vs4 and alot more of gamemodes, The best gamemode: may be the Storyline game mode which focus on example jedies and Rebels has to storm a base and take down example the guns and Radars and the main core that controls the base. and a few more things. A round can be very long and fun (based on how fast you and your team are to clear the way and destroy the targets).
For me the graphics are wonderful i normally remap everything with HD texture but this game doesn't need it at all. It's wonderful and if your a star wars fan you wont regret you bought it.
