Summary

JK with some new additions.

The Good

It's Star Wars. The new weapons are cool. (Especially the stormtrooper rifle scope!!!!). Some new force powers like far sight and chain lightning to name a few are a solid addition to the arensal of force powers.

The Bad

One of the new weapons is one of the most horrible weapons I have ever seen. It is the corbonite ray (or something like that). It is this dinky gun that shoots a stream of gas 2 inches. If you keep the gas hitting an enemy, he will eventually be frozen in carbonite. The award for the worst force power goes to ........... force saber throw. It goes so slow, that you will likely be shot by the time it hits an enemy and it takes up a ton of force energy. Finally, the same old awful lightsaber moves are back. One last thing, the story stinks. After going through the most agonizingly difficult game, your are "treated" to an awful cutscene. The cutscenes are game engine quality, so don't except anything great.

The Bottom Line

If you liked Jedi Knight, you should get this.
