Quigon007 brings us retelling of the main JK2 SinglePlayer storyline, complete with new skins and a new concept.
The main storyline has not changed from the standard SP game, but the background story has. In keeping with the Mysteries of the Sith (MOTS) Jedi Knight conversion, this mod is intended to be more true to the original Jedi Knight game. Here's the back story:
Takes place 3 years after Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2 and 2 years before Jedi Knight: Mysteries of The Sith. Arkon, Jerec's brother is seeking revenge against Kyle Katarn for killing his brother.
So as you play this conversion of the SP game, the primary story elements are the same. Remnant on Kejim, Cortosis crystals, supposed death of Jan, return to the Jedi Academy, and so on. The key change is the principal characters. Desann is now Arkon, Jerec's brother; Jedi Trainer is now Mara Jade; Luke is now Jacen Solo; Lando is Dash Rendar; and so forth.
There is quite a bit of reskinning of existing skins in the mod as well. You'll find that Kyle's look is new, as well as Tavion's, among others.
I found this mod enjoyable to play. I don't know if I would say the character choices were better than the basic SP game, but if you're a big fan of the old Jedi Knight game, this will definitely entertain.
Overall, a decent job. Nothing too drastic.
VERY IMPORTANT: Installing this mod will seriously mess with the display of your MultiPlayer games, so be sure to remove the PK3 before playing MultiPlayer!
