Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith

Continuing with my game recomendations is another Star Wars game. This one is called Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith and is an expansion pack for Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. Released in 1998 it follows 2 protagonists. "Kyle Katarn" and his apprentice "Mara Jade." (Those of you who`ve read the Star Wars Novels know who she is!) The game takes place 5 years after Dark Forces II in which the fledgeling New Republic is still coming under attack from remnant Imperial forces. The 1st few levels are dedicated to Kyle Katarn but the rest of the game is for Mara Jade. As the game progresses Mara Jade grows in the force and eventually helps her master Kyle out of a very bad situation at the end of the game.

The gamplay is just like Dark Forces II though it did get a slight boost in graphics. Sadly the Full Motion cut-scenes were removed in favor of 3D rendered cut scenes, which took away a lot of the feel the 1st game had. However the rest of the game was superbly made. The big selection of weapons from the 1st game was still included but also got an expansion with 5 new weapons added, including a heat seeking rocket launcher, flash bang grenades, and even a Carbonite gun! The soundtrack to the game got some tweaks to play music suited to the mode of the game at the time and area of play. Such as playing a more up tempo song as the game got more action packed and a slower tempo as the game went into a calmer mode. The sound-effects also got a boost with the newer weapons and a more crisper sound. The graphics got a slight boost with lighting effects and a clearer view of objects and people at at a further distance. The AI also got a boost in which enemies were smarter in their way of attacking you.

All in all this was a great expansion pack. The deep story and great game play has kept me busy and entertained for hours upon hours of my life. So I highly recommend this to anyone who has Dark Forces II to get this expansion pack!

Both Dark Forces II and Mysteries of the Sith are for PCs only.
