5.0 out of 5 stars Still one of the best February 5, 2000
By Nathan
While this game is getting a little dated, it is still easily one of the best on the market. Though its pixelized graphics and low-res video can't stand up to today's 3D FMV standards, and the midi soundtrack is silly after MP3, this game can hold its own.
It has great control, cool weapons, and a nitty-gritty real feal to it. Also, it's still just as cool as when it first came out knowing that you get to go and mow down stormtroopers. This game has a good solid plot, and lots of cool and familiar baddies and weapons.
This game also has a lot of firsts...It was the first, or at least one of the first, 1st person shooter to have a plot. Another major change from previous shooters is that there are actually goals within the levels...In Doom and such you're just trying to brainlessly shoot your way through a maze and out of a level, but here you're trying to brainlessly shoot your way through a definite defined area trying to complete several set objectives so that you can advance on your quest. And yet a third first is the secondary fire mode on many weapons.
The biggest problem in this game is a lack of a save option, but that isn't that big of a problem because these aren't huge, frustrating levels. While they sometimes take a while, they're logical and succint, unlike some newer games where you have to run halfway around the world to get anywhere.
For this low a price, this game is definitely worth getting.

5.0 out of 5 stars The First Is Always The Best December 22, 1999
This is great! You get to be fully emerced in the Lucas Star Wars envirement. You board star ships and shoot it out with storm troopers. Even Vader has a cameo but you don't get to shoot at him just see him in the interludes. If you like star wars buy this. If you like first person shooters, get this. It has realalistic people(for the time it was made) and does not go for the blood that all the others do it has a storyline instead! It only lacks two things, one I want to fly that fighter of his and two, what the sequel has, a lightsaber. It does have great weapons though(nothing beates the missle of a dark trooper gun when you hear that great bo-thoom soud :) And you do get to use stealth and choose how you wish to complete a mission, ie: kill them all or sneak in and get it done. Like I said, it is a great title, and a must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding entertainment July 23, 2000
By D. Owen
Dark Forces is one of the best games I have ever played. Even though the game is 5 years old and the graphics are admittedly dated the actual gameplay and play value are still very fresh. The game is set in the popular Star Wars universe where you, as Kyle Katarn must complete numerous missions for the Rebel Alliance including stealing the Death star plans and blowing up an Imperial Star Destroyer. The look and feel of the game is excellent and really draws you into the atmosphere of the game complete with a good midi score.
Where this surpasses Doom is it's portral of the Star Wars universe and it's on-going storyline which keeps bringing you back for more. And with fan produced levels the entertainment value is infinite.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for anybody who can look past the graphics. January 21, 2000
I'll admit, the first time I played this game was nearly three years ago, and I'll also admit it was fun. The graphics were good, if you liked paper cutout dolls walking towards you and shooting. However, the gameplay was fantastic. It was one of the first 3D adventure/action game that I had played in my life, and it blew me away. So, if you want a good gaming experience, and can see past the early graphics, then buy this game. If you have to have good graphics in a game with a good storyline and all that jazz, then get the sequal to this game, which is one of the best there is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does anybody really need this game? March 12, 2001
This was probably a great game - a first-person shooter based on Star Wars. Introducing the charachter of Kyle Katarn - an ex-Imperial commando turned soldier-of-fortune - Dark Forces will send you to the reaches of the galaxy to learn the secret of a new Imperial Weapon. When isolated rebel ouposts are crushed by waves of "Dark Troopers", Kyle is enlisted to track their base. Travelling to worlds boasting sewers, icy cliffs, volcanos, rivers and labyrinthine factories, you piece together the clues that will lead you to the Imperial Crusier, "Arc Hammer", and a showdown with the Darkest of them.
Dark Forces is a great game for those with a computer too slow to run its sequel - Jedi Knight (a Pentium 90 or less). These people won't be able to appreciate the improved graphics and sound of that newer game. Unfortunately, even in its own time, Dark Forces was burdened by a weak storyline and frustrating gameplay. Though you played a person, the movements of walking and head-turning seemed artificial, less like a walking person and more like a car driving - you may want to keep that dramamine nearby. Because the range of eye-movement is limited (especially compared to JK) it's hard to get a good situational awareness. Also, owing to mid-1990's AI, the enemies are pretty dissappointing - you pretty much wipe out only the enemies you'll find in any one area. Take out an imperial platoon in one area of a prison block, and you'll find another later on completely oblivious to that fact. Another dissappointment is how little LucasArts has updated the game - while X-Wing and Tie Fighter have been updated to exploit 3D hardware acceleration, DF seems as dated as ever. Buy it only if you're running on something less than a 486. Beware - this disk comes with 3 playable levels of Jedi Knight, and you'll be spoiled forever for Dark Forces if you so much as look at any one of them.
