Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is a game of two halves. The first part is in a first-person view. This involves working your way to a location while firing at enemies with a variety of Star Wars weapons. This felt very sensitive to me, and I found myself missing the targets a lot. The second half is where it gets interesting, you get a lightsaber, force powers and a new 3rd person perspective.

The sounds and music are authentic Star Wars, with the graphics being OK for the time they were made. There is some upscaling, but I find this makes them look worse, as you can see the imperfections. The gameplay is very 2002, there is no HUD to speak of except for health and armour. You have no tutorial, so no way to know what button does what. There’s, no mini-map, no goal indicator, you just walk till you find the goal.
This game takes no prisoners and has no training wheels to speak of. When learning your new force powers, you are then thrown into a room of snipers taking shots at you. I also have completely forgotten about manual saves. I am so used to just go back a bit when I die, that I had forgotten the pain of dying and going back to square one.
STAR WARS™: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is my kinda game. It’s challenging and definitely has a sense of nostalgia to it. Finally, please check out our gaming reviews. Also, don’t forget to connect with the Jabba Reviews team on Facebook or Twitter.
