Despite a slow start, it's a HUGELY underrated game that stands with the likes of KotOR and Battlefront, and has the best melee combat of any video game I have played.

I'm sure this game was amazing at the time of release. You actually get to play as a Jedi with a lightsaber! And it's not just a click-to-melee-attack weapon, you can control the direction of the swing and stuff! The lightsaber combat would have been something new and innovative at the time.

Unfortunately, once again I've ended up playing a sequel before a previous installment. I played Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy already. I thought I'd done right this time, I mean, come on! That one is called Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, this one is called Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast.

With that polished experience in mind, I found Outcast's lightsaber combat frustrating. I know how to use the lightsaber but time and time again I found myself getting sliced to pieces. The Reborn and the Dark Jedi are able to perform rapid and intricate slash maneuvers that you just cannot.

Speaking of frustrating, this game has some of the worst level design I've ever seen. I don't like it when games insist on holding my hand the whole time with large waypoint markers on linear maps but Jedi Outcast really went all the way in the other direction. Almost every mission found me stuck at some point because I simply couldn't figure out where to go next. Sometimes the place you're supposed to go next would turn out to be a tiny grate IN THE CEILING in a non-descript room that you'd already passed through earlier in the level. Sometimes it's an inconspicuous hole that's off to the side of the path, but the path continues for several more encounters with no indication so you wind up fighting through one or two more entire map sections before finally ending up in a place with walls you can't climb and doors that don't open, wondering if there's a switch that you missed somewhere.

Ending this on a high note, the plot was good and the sounds of the Star Wars universe are always a pleasure to listen to. The music, the beeps and whirs of panels, even the sound of blaster fire, it's great.
