STAR WARS Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is a bit of a grind at the beginning, but if you can endure the first part then the game will open up into Jedi Force battles and light saber combat which will make all the Star Wars fans happy. For the cost of the game (currently only $9.99), it's worth putting in your rotation.
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.
Star Wars: Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast has an opening five chapters that will test your patience to its absolute limit. In some ways, this is down to its age and in others it's just bad design coupled with the odd decision to hold back the game’s best aspects for such a long stretch. This poor pacing is the one thing standing in the way of us giving this a hearty recommendation. However, If you think you’ve got the fortitude to push on through to the good stuff – a trial worthy of Yoda himself – you’ll be handsomely rewarded with some top-notch Star Wars action.
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast still provides the best lightsaber combat in any Star Wars game to date.
If players want to discover what Star Wars games used to be like before the arrival of November's Jedi: Fallen Order, this is a reasonable point of comparison. After all, 2002 seems like a long time ago when it comes to cinematic action-adventure game design. Sunshine, Metroid Prime, and Wind Waker all hold up as game experiences from this era. Jedi Outcast is far, far away from doing so.
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast holds up, bringing one excellent narrative driven campaign and sadly loses its multiplayer.
For $9.99 this isn’t a terribly hard game to recommend but newcomers need to be aware of the hurdles they’ll experience
