GameSpot :" [Jedi Outcast] is a very slick game that
borrows the best elements from past shooters, introduces a number of its own
great twists, and them combines these elements to make something that will be
highly enjoyable both for those who like shooters and those who simply like
Star Wars. And if you happen to like both, then you'll be especially impressed.
IGN: "If you're even remotely interested in this one,
you should go buy it and play it. Not only is this one of the greatest Star
Wars games I've ever played, it's one of the best action games period. Get it,
Play it, Love it."
GameSpy: " The most fun you'll have... is when you're
confronted with large groups of enemies in wide-open spaces. More than the
standard run-and-shoot, this is the kind of strategic combat that worked so
well in Halo and Medal Of Honor: Allied Assault. Add your Force powers and some
lightsaber duels into the mix, and these battles evolve into some of the best
action you'll experience this year. "
Games Domain "Jedi Knight II is a sublime Star Wars
experience. It takes the best of Jedi Knight and superpowers it with well
thought out Force powers, excellent level design, fiendish and boggling puzzles
and simply magnificent lightsaber fights."
epiGamer.com :"I can safely say Star Wars Jedi Knight
II: Jedi Outcast is the best Star Wars game I've played in years and has
provided me with more joy than any other recent shooter. While the game faces
stiff competition..., Jedi Knight II benefits from taking itself less
seriously, allowing for an altogether unique and exhilarating experience"
