JEDI KNIGHT II PREVIEWS:

Here are some of the most recent Jedi Knight II previews:

"Locales include many familiar and some never-seen-before sights in the Star Wars universe. You can chill out and have a Colt 45 with Lando in Cloud City. You can goof off in levitation class at the Jedi academy on Yavin. The adventurous types can mix and mingle with the seedy characters on Nar Shadaa -- the Smuggler's Moon. Other maps include streets of Bespin and the Death Star. " -- [ GameSpy ]

"They also dropped in some NPC jedi into the duel and at one point had three independant duels going on. Each of the NPC's seemed very intelligent as they all used the force powers, the all blocked attacks, and took advantages of openings in their opponent. Also shown to use was part of a new level that had never been seen before. It was the Hangar on Yavin 4 complete with war room This is what the new screenshot is from." -- [ JediKnightII.net ]

"The storyline follows on from the original Jedi Knight, and following his heroic defeat of Jerec and the Dark Jedi at the Valley of the Jedi, Kyle Katarn has abandoned the Force, fearing that he may succumb to the temptations of the dark side. Yet when Kyle learns of a powerful new Dark Jedi who is developing technology that can harness the power of the Force, Kyle takes up his lightsaber once again, determined to foil this latest challenge to the order of the Star Wars universe." -- [ GameSpot UK ]

"During the demo, Katarn threw the lightsaber at a group of Stormtroopers, killing them all and then the lightsaber magically returns to him, sort of like a boomerang. How cool is that!? "Also we want players to use the lightsaber for other purposes as well," says Tosti, "like cutting through doors to escape through." At this point we're grinning from ear to ear. In addition, to lightsabers, players will have access to other more traditional weapons such as laser blasters, thermal detonators and compulsion weapons. Each weapon will have primary as well as secondary functions." -- [ GameSpy ]

"Jedi Outcast takes place almost a decade after the events of Jedi Knight, and while the plot is still a closely guarded secret at LucasArts, Tosti told us to expect some of the series' memorable characters to make a return appearance. Specifically, Katarn's faithful sidekick and pilot, Jan Ors, will play a significant role in Jedi Outcast, and like the two games that preceded it, Jedi Outcast will be very character-driven. However, unlike Jedi Knight, this game won't have quite so many RPG elements, including the ability to choose between the light and dark force paths. That's not to say that your actions won't have any consequences throughout Jedi Outcast--quite the opposite." -- [ GameSpot ]

"I am a Jedi Knight fanatic, so I was very pleased to see its sequel at the first LucasArts Editor's Day. Unfortunately it wasn't around for the hands-on sessions. I guess LucasArts didn't want us editors rumbling for a turn in their offices. However, I did pick up some new screenshots and some more facts about this game, which instantly made it to the top of my Most Anticipated List the first time I saw it."
-- [ Gamesmania ]

"I know it's usually not proper to make definite opinion-based statements in previews, but Jedi Knight II is going to kick ass. There, I said it -- and I'm happy about it. Unless everyone working on the project at developer Raven Software gets abducted by aliens or their brains all simultaneous explode, the project is on track to be an instant hit."
-- [ PC.IGN ]

"What I saw of Jedi Knight 2 was very early in development. Rick Johnson of Raven software told me this: "I want to tell you now, when you see Jedi Knight, remember, it's only a month's worth of work. I'm not saying that as an excuse, but because I'm boasting." And he has every right to boast. I'd easily put the pre-alpha, one level build of JK2 in my top five coolest things I saw at this year's E3."
-- [ JediKnight.net ]

"Raven Software, one of the best first-person developers in the biz and the team behind such first-person hits as Heretic, Soldier of Fortune, and Elite Force, have been enlisted to help create Jedi Knight II. With the departure from LucasArts of Justin Chin, one of the major forces behind the original Jedi Knight, we couldn't think of a better team to entrust the Jedi Knight franchise to." -- [ PC.IGN ]

"PC gamers may be feeling a little abandoned since LucasArts announced that Obi-Wan was defecting to the Xbox. Since then, the Star Wars PC line-up has consisted of console hand-me downs. That all changed at E3 2001." -- [ Gamesmania ]

"The most popular station at LucasArts' public booth at E3 was undoubtedly the one that was demonstrating Jedi Outcast: Jedi Knight II, the recently announced sequel to 1997's Jedi Knight. As we mentioned earlier, the game is currently in development at Raven Software, and it's powered by id Software's powerful Quake III technology. " -- [ GameSpot ]
