Este es uno de esos juegos que tratas de evaluar casi negativamente para intentar compensar el subidón de nostalgia.
Sin embargo, en este caso redescubrí que convertía este juego en GENIAL.

Un diseño de niveles que prima la rejugabilidad de sus pantallas, con diversas maneras de solventar muchas zonas y combates, y una gran variedad de entornos y de cambios de horizontalidad-verticalidad.
Un sistema triple de armamento (sable-armas-fuerza) muy equilibrado, obligándote a alternar entre ellos y no haciendo menos peligrosa a una patrulla armada que a un par de sith despistados.
Enfrentamientos de sable que pueden acabar rápido o alargarse según tu habilidad (especialmente notable en el enfrentamiento final, que puede hacerse larguísimo o solventarse con un sólo mandoblazo) Porque los sables CORTAN, no se sobrevive a mucho más de 1 o 2 golpes. Y el sistema de 3 tipos de combate (poderoso-equilibrado-rápido) es sencillo pero versátil.
Una historia entretenida, y un protagonista sin parangón (hasta su grito de muerte mola)

Y como copete, un multijugador impecable, con situaciones memorables como el arrastrar contigo a alguien al vacío con el estrangulamiento o que todo un equipo se te lance encima cuando llevas la bandera y descarguen una tormenta perfecta.

Official description

In the tradition of the multi-award-winning Star Wars Jedi Knight : Dark Forces II, rebel agent Kyle Katarn returns in exhilarating first-person action.

Several years have passed since Kyle avenged his father's death and saved the Valley of the Jedi from Jerec and his band of Dark Jedi. Allowing his Force powers to languish for fear of falling to the Dark side, Kyle set aside his lightsaber, vowing never to use it again. But when a new and menacing threat to the galaxy emerges, Kyle knows he must reclaim his past in order to save his future.

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is being developed in partnership with Activision's critically acclaimed developer Raven Software. Players assume the role of Kyle as they employ a unique mix of weapons, Force powers and your lightsaber in both single- and multiplayer modes.

* Expanded and enhanced use of the lightsaber features a slew of attack and defense moves
* Tap into the powers of the Force including Jump, Push, Jedi Mind Tricks and more
* Employ combat or stealth, depending on the situation. When a fight is necessary, be at the ready with an arsenal of weapons: stun baton, Bryar blast pistol, blaster rifle to name but a few
* Explore breathtaking Star Wars locales--Cloud City, the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4, Nar Shaddaa, the smugglers' moon--plus some never-before-seen locations
* Multi-player options including, deathmatch, saber-only deathmatch, and team capture the flag
* Developed in conjunction with the critically acclaimed Raven Software using a modified Quake III Team Arena engine

Editor note

The game has an extra stage for the demo, that is kind of well made and replayable (outstanding in demo standards)
