Windows 10 Review for Dummies

Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast Member Review for the PC

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast: PC

Genre: Action, FPS

Players: 1

Producers: LucasArts?


Reviwed By: Lakerol 2/23/07


The StarWars franchise is like a big giant Bantha, that sometimes craps out some really horrible titles, and sadly some games turn out to be nothing but Bantha fodder, yet not all SW games are horrible. Jedi Knights II: Jedi Outcast is one of the select few that delivers.

While not as well known as KOTOR, or dissapointing as Empire at War, Jedi Outcast blows away anything that comes close with a deep storyline, gameplay and use of all the force powers a hungry Sith lord could want.

Like most of the StarWars expanded universe, the main Character Kyle Katarn has nothing to do with the original three movies. This does not stop Lucasarts from developing another popular main character that has interactions with some of the classic chracters, such as Mon Mothma, and Luke Skywalker.

StarWars fans rejoice!  Jedi Outcast delivers some sweet gameplay, weapon use and a incaptivating story line. Our hero, is duped to believe that his hunny, Jan has been killed by a rouge Jedi. So instead of acting rationally, our not to bright hero, goes forth, and slowly becomes an uber evil/kinda good jedi.

With some helpful lessons from Luke, in the art of Jedism.  Kyle slowly regains his old abilites with the force, and after visiting Valley of the Jedi, he supercharges himself with dead jedi mojo.

While the game does have some problems with random bugs, the autosave features pretty much solves this problem.  The graphics are nothing less than what true SW fans have come to expect. With smooth transition from FPS to 3rd person view for classic SW lightsaber combact.

While I would rather use my Jedi powers to destroy all the crappy reviewers on this site, Kyle uses his powes to jump, push, and pull his way to victory.  Playing this game requires most players to hot key force powers, since you will be pulling many weapons away from helpless lackeys.

On a sidenote, I found the game somewhat realistic in the sense of when cutting off a Stormtroopers hand, resulted in a stumpy, glowing forearm. Way cool.

There is some puzzle solving, but kyle will spend most of his time cleaving his way though wave after wave of Stormtroopers, Pirates, and a few Dark Jedi.  Fun.

This game, without a doubt, is one of the best SW games on the market.  Enjoy this game for as long as possible, and maybe someday, we will be rewared for our patience with Jedi Outcast: III

Pros: Its part of the Dark Forces Series! Awesome!

Cons: Some bugs

Pros: Storyline, graphics, force powers, better than Jedi Academy!

Cons: Older game, so might be difficult to find.


Final Note: As I stated before, This game is one of the best SW games on the market. If you can find it, buy it.
