You'll get to assume the role of Kyle as you wield a unique mix of weapons, Force powers and your lightsaber in both single and multiplayer modes. Plus, your choice: combat or stealth - depending on the situation. When a fight is necessary, be at the ready with an arsenal of weapons!
In the tradition of the multi-award-winning Star Wars: Jedi Knight, Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2, Jedi Outcast features rebel agent Kyle Katarn in exhilarating first-person action. Several years have passed since Kyle avenged his father's death and saved the Valley of the Jedi from Jerec and his band of Dark Jedi. Allowing his Force powers to languish for fear of falling to the dark side, Kyle entrusted his lightsaber to Luke Skywalker, vowing never to use it again. But when a new and menacing threat to the galaxy emerges, Kyle knows he must reclaim his past in order to save his future. LucasArts is developing Jedi Outcast in partnership with Activision's critically acclaimed Raven Software. Players assume the role of Kyle as they employ a unique mix of weapons, Force powers, and the lightsaber in both single- and multiplayer modes. Jedi Outcast features expanded and enhanced use of the lightsaber, with new attack and defense moves. Tap into the powers of the Force, including jump, push, Jedi mind tricks, and more. Employ combat or stealth, depending on the situation. When a fight is necessary, be at the ready with an arsenal of weapons: stun baton, Bryar blast pistol, and blaster rifle to name but a few.
Explore breathtaking Star Wars locales such as Cloud City, the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4, Nar Shaddaa, the smugglers' moon--plus some never-before-seen locations. Multiplayer options include deathmatch, saber-only deathmatch, and team capture the flag.

The game is intense - the handful of evil Jedi from "Jedi Knight" are replaced with hordes of "Reborn" here, many in that special armor; even stormtroopers - reliable blaster-fodder from the movies and the older games - are tougher than before. To get through the game's many levels will not infrequently require special puzzle-solving skills. Individual levels are very long, and the game itself may consume about a month's worth of late-night Jedi-frag sessions. (Comparable gameplay wrapped up "Voyager: Elite Force" - the "Star Trek" Quake3 game - in about a week.) Some challenges seem needless - with players being forced to re-play the same the moment because they couldn't handle simple things like walking a ledge or jumping. The game could also have done without sniping - where you're picked off by some distant shooter you'd never even know existed until after he'd killed you. Lastly, the story - while governing the game - isn't all that compelling. It's your basic One-Jedi-versus-many-evil-Jedi-and-Imperial-stormtroopers story - an afterthought guaranteed to have you prowling many corridors in search of power-ups.
The Quake3 engine is breathtaking - smoke/vapor and laser effects are beautiful, and the smooth animation means that saber duels are much closer to those in the movies than to the saber battles of "Jedi Knight". The game also excels in visualizing vast distances (like the insides of the huge Bespin ventilation shafts) and the sounds of distant characters, and different atmospheric settings - from the claustrophobic corridors of a starship, to the sweeping avenues of Bespin; the steamy jungles of Yavin 4 to the hallowed halls of the Massassi Temple.
The obvious question is whether you should get this game instead of "Jedi Academy" - the other SW/Quake3 game, or whether your owning that newer game obviates having to get this one. "Outcast" is more challenging than "Academy" in almost every way - tougher Jedi battles, longer levels, more of them, more tenacious AI, hard puzzles - resulting in many moments that have to be re-played as apparently insurmountable. Casual players will probably be turned off by "Outcast", and should stick with "Academy". Those who feel ready for something more than stormtroopers and jedi mind-tricks will be more than satisfied with "Outcast". Also, while I may just be jaded, I've yet to find a SW game that matches the experience I enjoyed playing "Jedi Knight" back in 1997.
MY FULLY ARMED AND OPERATIONAL BATTLE-STATION: a P4 running 2 GHz, with 512MB of RAM and a GeForce III card kept the force (and the action) flowing smoothly on my system. Though an old game, prospective buyers should check the LA website to make sure their graphics cards are supported. My original Savage card, ably handling "Elite Force" was hamstring by this game despite both using the same graphics engine.
So, if you're smart and you have waited until now to purchase JEDI OUTCAST, then wait no more. The price is down and the game is every bit as awesome now as when it was first released! It has the best storyline of any Star Wars game I have yet played, and as good as even a couple of the movies (I will not mention which ones). Perhaps my favorite part about this game were the conversations you hear the stormtroopers engaged in. They are quite humorous and realistic. They sound as if they were written by someone who has actually served in the military (particularly in an enlisted status).
The lightsaber fights are always fun as are the use of force powers. JEDI OUTCAST has the best re-playability of any computer game I've ever played.
I highly recommend it.
Still yet, a million times better than Academy!
If you are like me and have grown up watching the Star Wars Trillogy and frequently fantasized as a kid that you had the powers of the force and a light saber, this game will fulfill every dream you had as a child Luke Skywalker wanna-be.
The graphics are great and the sound is amazing, including the music score (much of which is original star wars movie music)
I would definitely sugguest a good sound system or headphones while playing to really appreciate the realistic envirionment.
Well worth the purchase.. great gameplay, fine storyline and tons of hidden goodies!
