The actors from the cut scenes are a funny looking bunch. The acting is pretty cheesy and could have done with some half decent scripts. Perhaps George Lucas could have offered decent actors deals for roles in the cut scenes in return for parts in the forthcoming Star Wars films. The Dark Jedi are a real challenge. You get to meet them as you progress through the game and they fight you with Lightsabers.
The further you progress, the more powerful the Jedi you fight. As you fight the later ones you find they are very handy with their lightsabers and they use the dark side force abilities often, especially the grip. They don't look as cool as Darth Vader, and I don't believe they are as hard, as I wouldn't spill his pint, and yet I would take Jerec's and tip it all over the pub's carpet.
"I was impressed with Jedi Knight from the minute I started playing the demo. Dark Forces was in my opinion the best 3D-shooter ever made. Jedi Knight is Dark Forces but with numerous add-ons that makes it superior to the other games on the market now. It has improved on the problems in Dark Forces, such as the option to save the game anytime during play. Also, all of the options that LucasArts has put in it gives you the option to customize your game.
For example, the ability to add a crosshair in the screen for a beginner. But for the experienced gamer who would like a little more of a challenge, he or she can disable the crosshairs. Another thing that I was very impressed with was the cutscenes. Great graphics that add to the game, and that make you want to play just another level by seeing what's happening in the cutscenes. The ability to review the cutscenes which you have passed is also a great function. However, if your CD-ROM is too slow or you don't have the full installation, it makes it very difficult to view the cutscenes. The Lightsaber is one option that can be very entertaining.
When you have the saber ignited (and if you are standing in the general direction) you are able to deflect the incoming laser bolts. One thing I didn't like as much is when you have to fight the Dark Jedi. The only way to win is by wildly slashing with your lightsaber. If you want to be strategic about it, you can slash, run around a bit, and slash again. But this gets very boring after fighting them for 10 minutes. Overall, Jedi Knight is a game well worth the $45 that you might invest in it. Great graphics and wonderful gameplay and storyline add up to an awesome game, especially for the Star Wars fan."
