:moved:

Moved from Entertainment forums (Star wars subforum) to Jedi Knight Forums.

By the way, my brother owns Jedi Academy. I personally don't own any Jedi Knight games. Kind of wish I had JK2 but JK3 makes up for it.

I own all of them. I have two copies of Jedi Academy, and two copies (1 PC 1 PS1) of Dark Forces. I also have Mysteries of the Sith, the JK expansion.

I have all of those four.

Dark Forces isn't a Jedi Knight game, nor does it have any connection to the JK Series. It was basically a pilot episode made to introduce Kyle, and has nothing to do with anything.

Dark Forces 2 is the only one that wasn't a total flop.

JK2 was let down by major technical and gameplay faults, as well as the fact that the engine used should never have been coded, never mind used for actual games. It wasn't a bad effort, though - the intentions were right, but the major flaw was the developer's relative stupidity and the fact they had to be cheapskates and liscense an inferior game engine, meaning that once they started using Q3, then it was actually impossible for JK2 to be a good "Jedi 'em up" game.

JK3 just blowed in every aspect. Raven Software cut far too many corners, broke almost every rule of games development, and to top it off - they, once again, used the worst game engine available just to save a few dollars. Storyline sucked, saber system sucks even harder, mod support is non-user-friendly to say the least, the character designs are horrible, the voice acting is more wooden than my desk, and the level design was laughable. Some of the missions made illogical attempts to draw out the game, the force powers might as well have not been there at all, and the guns shouldn't have been there at all - they were so terrible, they needed ripping out and replacing with decent weapons.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

:rofl:

Wrong on every count but the first. It's not a "pilot" episode of anything. The JK series is a spin off of Dark Forces, not the other way around. I'd expect you, of all people, to understand this.

Everyone has a history. Just because it doesn't feature any pretty glow sticks doesn't make it a worthless game.

I didn't mean "DF was a pilot episode for the JK series". My point was that in the end, it turned out as nothing more than a vehicle to introduce Kyle. Whether it was intended as that or not, that's really all it ended up as in regards to the franchise.

Despite DF being a good game, that's all it's usually remembered as by this generation of gamer - Kyle Katarns's debut performance.

I'd argue it's not remembered at all by this generation of gamer because they've never played it. ;)
