Manufacturer's Description: In the tradition of the multi-award-winning Star Wars: Jedi Knight, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II, Jedi Outcast features rebel agent Kyle Katarn in exhilarating first-person action. Several years have passed since Kyle avenged his father's death and saved the Valley of the Jedi from Jerec and his band of Dark Jedi. Allowing his Force powers to languish for fear of falling to the dark side, Kyle entrusted his lightsaber to Luke Skywalker, vowing never to use it again. But when a new and menacing threat to the galaxy emerges, Kyle knows he must reclaim his past in order to save his future.
Players assume the role of Kyle as they employ a unique mix of weapons, Force powers, and the lightsaber in both single- and multiplayer modes. Jedi Outcast features expanded and enhanced use of the lightsaber, with new attack and defense moves. Tap into the powers of the Force, including jump, push, and Jedi mind tricks. Employ combat or stealth, depending on the situation. When a fight is necessary, be at the ready with an arsenal of weapons: stun baton, Bryar blast pistol, and blaster rifle to name but a few.
Explore breathtaking Star Wars locales such as Cloud City, the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4, Nar Shaddaa, the smugglers' moon--plus some never-before-seen locations. Multiplayer options include capture the flag, free for all, team FFA, duel, weapons only, and Jedi master.
Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast X Box, November 11, 2002
Reviewer: indy31 from New Zealand
One of the most exciting Jedi games from LucasArts, Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is an awesome addition to the ever-growing X-Box selections in entertainment. STAR WARS lends itself amazingly well to games in any form (PS2, GBA, PC and XBOX) with a myriad of exciting adventures, including JEDI STARFIGHTER and the GBA Ep.2 game. JEDI OUTCAST is my favourite of all the STAR WARS games, with good graphics, top-notch sound and inventive levels for enthusiasts who want more action! I've played both the PC version and the X Box, and this one wins easliy. The graphics and controls are much better. The cheat codes are easy to find (Some really cool stuff- my favourite is the force lightning) and the title Jedi, Kyle Katarn is one of the best characters ever done for a Star Wars video game. If it has a flaw, the stormtroopers are too easy to kill on the first levels. But the game has graphics and picture quality far above JEDI KNIGHT I. For STAR WARS game addicts and fans, this is the best. May the force be with you!
FUN FACTOR: 10/10
Great game, November 2, 2002
Reviewer: Lik Way Chan from Medford, MA United States
I have the PC version of the game and it was great. The XBox version will only have slight changes from the excellent PC version. First, there won't be any online play. You can still link your consoles together but the multiplayer for the Xbox LIVE has been axed. Second, the levels load differently. They'll be done in sections rather than as a whole. Third, they took out dismemberment when you use your lightsaber to cut someone. This is probably the worst feature taken out. You won't get to see arms flying now. Other than that, this will be just like the PC version. Awesome game with a great story that actually extends the Star Wars mythos. Get it if you didn't get the PC one.
Best game ever, October 4, 2002

This game is the coolest tyhe most exiteing game ever in starwars history. You are very lucky if you own a x-box.
Jedi Outcast won't be as good on Xbox as it was on PC...., September 14, 2002
Reviewer: bluewolf4 from DALLAS
Jedi Outcast is a solid game that has a nice storyline and great customizable multiplayer. I think, though, that it won't be as good on the console simply because a lot of games that moved from the PC to the consoles were not as good. There are too few buttons on the controllers for all the game options. Also, I think a split-screen for mp will look pretty [lame]. Still should be a lot of fun though.
