    Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
    Author: Drew Lanclos   Publisher: Lucas Arts   Developer: Raven Software
    Date Posted: May 29th, 2002
    SLRating: SLRating: 8.5/10
    Bottom Line: LucasArts' trust in Raven was well placed, as they've made a great game with good replayability. It could have used some polish, though.

    Pros & Cons

    Pros

    • Force powers are great
    • Controls are easy to work with
    • Graphics that really make you feel like you're in the Star Wars universe
    • Multiplayer, as in Jedi Knight, is a blast

    Cons

    • Music gets old rather quickly
    • Some minor collision detection problems
    • Challenge level is across the board
    • Some quibbles about debunking Star Wars canon
    • No guest appearance by Max

    Conclusion

    I realize that if you read my article to completion, it might seem like I'm bagging on Jedi Outcast a lot. And it's true, there's a fair amount of nits to pick. Does that really make the game that bad, though? Of course not. I've enjoyed it immensely, despite its jumping puzzles and manipulation of the Force power system. Multiplayer is a real blast as well, and it'll only get better.

    Many gamers were disappointed when Obi-Wan's PC release was cancelled in favor of making it an Xbox exclusive, as it was believed to have been the next Dark Forces-like title. Thankfully, this wasn't at all the case, as reviewers generally panned on Obi-Wan. Jedi Outcast isn't without its flaws, but it's certainly worth your time to look at.
