Anybody else still play the original Jedi Knight here?

I was curious if anyone still plays the original JK even though it came out almost 13 years ago

You mean Dark Forces? I think the last time I installed it was when I got another copy with the purchase of Jedi Outcast. It's been probably four years at least since I've played it.

I only have a Jedi Outcast for the GameCube. Yeah, I know, it has been outdated, but that is what I have.

I don't think that I have actually played the game in about a year. Maybe I will try playing it again soon.

Hmm, no, haven't played it in a long time. But the game is a classic, so it's definitely not like I'm never going to play it again.

I play it every once in a while. Think the last time was about a year ago. Oh, and it's only been 11 years since it came out.

I never actually played Dark Forces, although I did play Outcast and Academy. I might have played it once or twice, but I can't remember.

Was it really all that good?

Dark Forces was a pretty standard shooter, though set in a star wars setting. It was fun back then (except the sewage monsters), but I don't think I'd want to replay it now.

Dark Forces II:Jedi Knight is probably the best game in the JK series so far, overall, introducing force use and lightsabers. The story was fairly interesting (and driven by cinematic cutscenes with actors), force powers were interesting and fights against lightsaber-wielding enemies fairly rare, but quite hard. The graphics were pretty horrible even when the game was new though, so it might be a significant barrier by today's standards

Right. I think I downloaded it a few years back and remembered thinking that it must have been released in like 1995 because of the graphics

It's too bad I missed out; with a review like that it had to have been good.

I liked Jedi Outcast slightly more than JK1 on the basis of the fact that the force powers were actuallγ useful that time around, the story was about the same in quality (even though Jerec was a better villain than Desann), and (most importantly) it was the first game to seriously define Kyle Katarn's character. In Dark Forces I, he wasn't really a character at all. In DF2, he was basically Luke Skywalker with a beard. Jedi Outcast is what made Kyle what he is today.

I would play JK1 more often, but it doesn't seem to like my computer. Dark Forces works as a good substitute, though.

Oh, it was. If you're interested, I suggest trying the mod Prime posted earlier. It makes the graphics a lot better (with the models, at least). Still looks outdated, but there's only so much you can do.

Oh, and as for the story, there were a few novellas a while back that told the story of JK1, but they were far more in depth than the game.

If I had a choice, it would be installed on all computers I own as well as all computers I don't own. Alas, I think that would involve several felonies if caught...

While in college I guessed the admin password at the college library and installed it on over 300 systems. Shortly afterwards I quickly became fully engorged by terrified piss and uninstalled it.

I love Dark Forces II:Jedi Knight, I have a giant skin pack for it, it has over 125 extra characters, all of them from ep.1- ep.6 :0 It's pretty good... I didn't know this thread took off... I should pay more attention

She hasn't aged a day, but she has changed from a thin Asian woman to a slightly junk-in-the-trunk white woman who has a passing resemblance to Michael Jackson.

...creepy.

Well don't go around using it too much. It's not really politically correct.

But it's still better, and more correct than saying 'White girl got a big a**e' .

Actually it would be more correct to say "the caucasian woman has a large rear end." Typically the words "ass" and "correct" don't go together unless you're talking about a barnyard animal.

Now seems like a good time to get back on-topic...

I had Jedi Knight 2 at one time and played through part of the campaign - up until somewhere around when you meet Luke. My impression of the story was so-so; it didn't captivate me at all. The multiplayer was awesome, though. I'd buy this game again just to have some more fun with those bots.... I lent it to a friend and never saw it again.

Even though the game has bad graphics, I play JK just as much as Jedi Outcast.
JK1 had a more original trilogy feel than the newer games. The only downer is that there's not much multiplayer action for JK1 these days.


Are you one of those poor Macintosh gamers that are in the possession of Empire at War, yet because of the scarcity of Mac players out there you have nobody to play against? If you are, PM me if you want to set up a game.

I liked Mysteries of the Sith more. the storyline in that was so cool.


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.
