A Jedi's strength flows from the Force. But beware of the dark side. --Yoda In Dark Forces, Kyle Katarn, a young mercenary successfully infiltrated the Empire. Jedi Knight continues the story of Katarn in Dark Forces 2 as he embarks on a quest into his past and learns the mysterious ways of the Jedi. With this knowledge, he must stop seven Dark Jedi from unlocking the powers of a hidden Jedi burial ground. This task forces Katarn to decide his destiny. If he chooses the Dark side, he will come into enormous power. If he chooses the Light side, he faces seemingly insurmountable evil. Whichever path Katarn chooses will change the face of the galaxy forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent buy! August 8, 2000
The thing that's realy great about this set is that you get three CDs worth of games. You get the original Dark Forces II game that has quite a bit of gameplay, PLUS the Mysteries of the Sith game that is almost as long as Jedi Knight. For the price you get a LOT of playing time.
Jedi Knight follows the path of Kyle Katarn, an ex-Imperial soldier turned rebel. His father was murdered and as the game progresses you learn the truth about your family and learn the ways of the force.
One of the interesting twists of Jedi Knight is that your alignment towards the dark side or the light side is determined by how many innocent people you kill or by certain moral decisions you make as the game progresses. You shape your own destiny and at the end of it all your decisions determine how the story turns out.
On the second game, Mysteries of the Sith, you primarialy play Mara Jade... although you also spend time in Kyle Katarn's shoes once again. Much likes its predecessor you find yourself once again going against the Empire before they destroy a Rebel base and ruin all hope the Rebellion has against defeating the Imperial forces. From there you embark on a search to find the lost Kyle Katarn and find your way through an amazingly twisted and trap ridden Sith Temple.
The thing that sets these games apart from most first person shooters is that you do more than run around and kill things. You have to make moral decisions, solve puzzles, and use tactics to your advantage. By the first hour or so of gameplay you'll easily lose yourself.
And finally, as an extra special bonus there is a hidden level on the Mysteries of the Sith CD of Cloud City that allows you to follow in Luke's footsteps from Empire strikes Back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb May 2, 2000
By tigen
Jedi Knight is my favorite shooter. Although its 3D engine lacks certain features, the single player gameplay is lightyears ahead of games like Quake 2. The atmosphere is very good, feeling like you're truly in the Star Wars universe. Also there is a good sense of scale; you can run around under AT-AT walkers and get vertigo from the huge distances in the levels, something I never felt in Quake engine games. I was often reminded of scenes like Cloud City in Empire Strikes Back, and some scenes surpassed the movies (playing this game was a lot more fun than "Episode 1" anyway). The level design is amazing, with many puzzles that require you to think, and inventive situations like a crashing starship and a ship refuelling station.
This game set a benchmark for FPS games that has not been surpassed in my opinion, except by Half-life in some respects.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Old But it is Still one Of the best March 25, 2000
This is the second best computer game of all time as far as I am concerned (only supassed by Half-life). The graphics are kind of dated now but the gameplay is still soild and loads of fun.
The game contains all of the best gameplay while being intermixed with a good story. The levels are designed very well and never seem to "feel" the same way twice.
Of course one of the best parts of this game is using the lightsaber in regular gameplay or against six Dark Jedi. No other Star Wars game has been able to capture the feel of the lightsaber like this one.
The sound effects are very good and the soundtrack is classic Star Wars with perfect timings to get the right music for what you are doing.
I can't think of anything more to say than, if you haven't already played this game, you are missing out on one of the greatest games of all time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, typical "Star Wars" July 15, 2000
By A Customer
I've never been a big fan of the 3D shooter genre. So many of them boil down to nothing more than a quick reflexes, and practically none of them have any sense of coherent plot. Jedi Knight, however, remains among one of my favorite games. It is, in essence, the next evolutionary step of games like "Doom" or, of course, "Dark Forces." But its real strength lies in its ability to keep a strong sense of plot and location, and to balance its action with puzzle elements that never seem gratuitous.
The plot is not particularly original, but it's functional. Seven dark Jedi are seeking the sacred "Valley Of The Jedi" (a Jedi burial ground with infinite power.) It's your job, as Kyle Katarn, to stop them. In a sense, the plot is a mix of "Star Wars" with a trace of "Indiana Jones." A side plot involves the fact that Kyle's father was murdered by the dark Jedi, and so the quest becomes more personal.
The story unfolds through a series of cutscenes after each level, with actors filmed against computer-generated backdrops. At times the performances and dialogue will make you cringe, but then so will much of the dialogue in the actual movies. The computer-generated scenery, however, is quite impressive throughout.
Gameplay is like most other 3D shooters. You run about a 3D world shooting almost anything that moves before it can shoot you. If you're hoping to become a "good" Jedi, however, you'll want to avoid shooting civilians. The pace in "Jedi Knight" never gets as frantic as it does in games such as "Quake." You'll rarely face large hordes of enemies in a single room.
