Aunque se le notan los años y las costuras en lo técnico (modelos, texturas...), sigue siendo un gran y largo shooter, relativamente dífícil, con puzles y desarrollo más o menos abierto y con unos duelos con sable de luz memorables. No tiene algunas características, como el online, pero si buscas un juego largo, barato y divertido, aquí lo tienes.

Jedi Outcast then is still capable of delivering modest morsels of Star Wars infused fun, it's just a shame that while the lack of effort which has been made with the port justifies its budget price, it does not make magically make a 2002 title equally as compelling in 2019. Here's hoping that next year's remaster of Star Wars Jedi Knight III: Jedi Academy is better, because the force is not quite so strong with this one.

Over the years, technology has changed dramatically, as have standards in level design and console controls. Despite its strengths, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast for Nintendo Switch and PS4 looks like a lazy, not adapted and obsolete port. You can play it, but given the huge number of more successful new products and remasters, it is not necessary. If you want to go back in time and remember the classics, it is better to do it on a PC that solves at least the problem with controls.

Jedi Outcast is a fun trip down memory lane. However, newcomers are likely to be too put off by the frustrations and poorly-aged game design of an ultimately incomplete port of a once-incredible title.
