Jedi Outcast! There is nothing to tell me "This game has fourteen years!!!" Nope! Maybe graphics, buuut... No!!! They're very good for these years (Remember, it's from 2002;)) So, I reccomend it; gameplay is very good, graphics are good and cheats are good. Try shift+~ [HelpUsObi 1 and then type [give armor [give ammo [give health [god [g_saberrealisticcombat and others lik [give x (x is item)

Came out 14 years ago and it is still the best Star Wars action game with lightsabers. The action feels really great, when you jump around, use Force, hack enemies with lightsabre, throw it around... You travel through many planets in Star Wars universe, meet many enemies and enjoy good story. I still think, Kyle Katarn should find his way into new movies, because he is such a great character.

This is a classic from my childhood that brought back very fond memories. This game has a neat story and the gameplay is fairly smooth but mistakes aren't forgiven easily and saving often is reccomended!

Very addicting and fun!
Takes some getting used to the controls because you're using a grappling hook.
Aggresive gameplay makes it really entertaining to play!

This game was super fun!! My older brother and I used to play this years ago back when it came out, and seeing this game available on steam has made me so happy.

I also found it cool that I could play online with my friends and family.

If there are any Star Wars nerds out there like me, I highly recommend playing this game.

Best Star Wars game in my opinion. Great story, even though the ending could've been better. The Saber combat is just the best out there. Kyle Katarn is best EU character too

Devo's dropping the mike...AGAIN!

Devo's Seal of Approval?:
Totally! I am signing, sealing, and delivering this title to you as a must play. This entry in the Dark Forces Series takes the mantle from its predecessors and makes it 10 feet taller. This title makes me yearn for a modern, force user centric 1st person shooter set in the Star Wars universe - a yearning which was not quite quenched with the re-release of Battlefront in 2015.


PROS
  • The solid and ground breaking gameplay from Dark Forces & Dark Forces II is back,
  • Streamlined user interface which is easy to navigate,
  • Amazing lightsaber combat with subtle, yet strong features including stance variation,
  • Improved character movement including acrobatic features,
  • Familiar and iconic enemies with interesting new additions,
  • Excellent new weapons,
  • Addition of a slow-motion action- and death-sequence camera,
  • Great graphics with amazing attention to detail (rain drops hitting your lightsaber make it "sizzle"!),
  • Iconic locations influenced by the original titles in the series, and the original Star Wars Trilogy,
  • Well implemented inclusions of iconic characters such as Luke Skywalker & Lando Calrissian,

CONS
  • A lack of the previously implemented psuedo-RPG system,
  • Occasionally glitchy hit recognition,


CONCLUSIONS...

A great 1st person shooter and an outstanding Star Wars game. This title takes you on a magnificanet and exciting return journey; not only into Star Wars, but into the Dark Forces mythos and the Expanded Universe (now labelled Star Wars "Legends").

While at the time of writing this review this title was almost 15 years old, it has aged incredibly well. The attention to detail Raven Software managed to pack into this game is amazing, with the rain even "sizzling" against the blade of your lightsaber on some levels. The atmoshpere, the gameplay, the difficulty challenge, the level design, the story, the character monouverability...the amount of content - all should be used as a standard against which to measure even today's AAA blockbusters.
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=641496578
As with any title. there are some flaws with the game, however, these are all really minor and are a sign of its age. The only truly negative aspect, which is still only a minor detraction from the overall experience, was the removal of the pseudo-RPG system introduced in Dark Forces II. I missed the opportunity to specialise my character in either the light or dark side of the force, which seemed to add another variation to the gameplay and to the replayability of Dark Forces II. This is easy to forgive however, and does make old Kyle Katarn a little more versatile; quickly dispatching foes with force grip, while still having the ability to heal yourself with the force.

All in all this game is amazing; even by today's standards. Stop reading this review right now and go and buy this title... better yet, buy the Dark Forces Bundle - YOU WON'T REGRET IT!.

1 This pile of c%$p made me want to take a break from gaming!
2 Avoid this title like a fat man on a diet avoids cake.
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.
8 An excellent title which shouldn't be missed if you can help it. I found it hard to put this game down, and I hope you do too.
9 A master piece! As close to perfect as any title can get. You are truly missing out on an unbelievable gaming experience if you do not play this game.
