A must for any Star Wars fan,
This review is from: Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast (Xbox) (Video Game)
Ok there are plenty of 1st person shooters around, and probably a few technically better than JKII, however if you grew up dreaming of being a Jedi Knight or on the other hand you are still working towards this goal then give JKII a (decent) try.
My wife bought this game along with our Xbox for my 5 year old and me (well the game was really for me). Initially having played the PC version I found the two thumbstick control difficult (not being a veteran Xboxer) and put the game into the too hard basket in particular for my 5yo son who loves anything Star Wars related. It seemed once again I'd underestimated his ability as now a few months down the track we play the game in two player mode for hours on end - particularly going for team work in Capture the Flag and Free For All games.
The graphics and levels in the game amazingly recreate the Star Wars feel and the one player story mode has a reasonable storyline to maintain interest. Sound is excellent especially if you have Dolby Digital. I was annoyed that I didn't get a lightsabre in one player mode until getting through a good number of levels, but slicing through a bar full of bad guys in true Jedi fashion has made my perserverance worthwhile.
So for all the budding Jedi Knights out there I'd say go grab this game - entertainment is to be found in both 1P and 2P modes.
