Two entirely different kinds of games, honestly. If you like first-person shooters, then you'll really enjoy JK. JK has GREAT level design and nice artwork, but then again, I think TPM does too

TPM is for an ENTIRELY different kind of gamer, too. TPM is more for the casual gamer than the hardcore type. If you've played Unreal, Quake, No One Lives Forever and enjoyed them, then you'll probably hate TPM, because it's not a DEEP game at all. But, if you're looking for a fun re-living of the movie with lots of action and some puzzle-solving, TPM is a good choice as well.

You can find and download the TPM demo at: http://download.cnet.com/downloads/0...lst-7-1.910858

Hey, just discovered that the TPM Demo has now been downloaded over 900,000 times! Not too shabby.

Get both. I think they're both cost under $20 now.

Edited for incorrect English. If my Elementary School teachers could see me now.

Hey at least everything is spelled right.

I will admit that TPM is more advanced in the graphics department, but other than that, as a game, I enjoy/enjoyed JK more.

I think the main strengths of JK over TPM are the presence of editing and multiplayer, when you come down to it, and some of the puzzles in TPM were far more annoying, IMHO.

No offense to the dev team of course, they had different objectives obviously, making a different type of game, and on a tighter schedule, than the JK team.

Just now looking at the ammount of games I have for my PC, PlayStation and Dreamcast, I've realised that TPM is one of the few games I've 'fully beaten' and played to the end. And it's going up against games like Half-Life, Jedi Knight, MOTS, Riven, Alice and Sonic Adventure (never did find all those emblems...). Surely that says something about the gameplay quality of TPM.

The Phantom Menace is better in the addictive department AND sound department (talking to the people and cutting deals with them), AND graphics department, AND fun department (killing the characters that tick you off).

I personally Dont like ether but if I had to choose I would get the Jedi Knight Demo it lasts longer and it makes ya prepare for the real game.

But I played TPM Demo and I have the game it was too easy to beat and nothing new every came out. Sure ya can try to fix it but ya cant not with TPM.

I Susject ya get JK if ya want too.

You can't compare TPM and JK. It would be like asking someone to choose between Rogue Squadron or Racer... You know... TPM is a adventure game... JK/MOTS is a FPS... So what do I suggest? Buy both you cheap bastard!!! lol

You won't regret it that's for sure...


It's not the kill
It's the thrill of the chase
