Recent Star Wars Games

If you can't get over how awesome the movies were and wish you could push people around, shock them with lightning or cut them into pieces with a lightsaber then you really should consider trying out some of the following games. The Star Wars programmers have really taken player enjoyment into account. In 2009, a game called The Force Unleashed was released, concerning Darth Vader's secret apprentice, but it is not available for PC.

 

 

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast (2002)

The PC version of this game was released in early 2002, powered by the Quake III: Team Arena game engine. The game primarily revolves around melee and ranged combat. The player can wield classic Star Wars weapons such as lightsabers, blasters and Force powers. The player plays as Kyle Katarn, a mercenary working for the New Republic, but why develops force powers and becomes a Jedi throughout the game. The main antagonist in the game is Desann, a former Jedi who killed a fellow student before leaving the Jedi Order.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (2003)

This game was released in September 2003. It is a sequel to Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The game is powered by the same Quake III: Team Arena game engine as its predecessor. Players start out with their lightsaber straight away and have the ability to construct their own lightsaber by choosing the blade colour and hilt style. After completing certain objectives, the player gains the ability wield a double-bladed lightsaber or two independent sabers (known as Jar'Kai). You are also able to choose specific species (like Twi'lek or Kel Dor with mostly fixed genders) to portray your player. In this game, the player plays as Jaden Korr, a new student arriving at Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy. The main antagonist in the game is Tavion, Desann's apprentice who Kyle (the player) battles in the previous game as well.

 

 

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (2003)

This game was released for PC in November 2003. This Star Wars game uses the Odyssey engine. The game takes place 4,000 years before the events in the Star Wars movies. The player chooses whether he wants to follow the light- or dark-side by his actions and speech. The player awakens aboard a doomed Republic ship with no recollection of his past. Throughout the game, he pieces together his past and eventually he is told who he is (but I don't want to ruin the puzzle so I won't tell you). The main antagonist is Darth Malak, a former Jedi Knight who fell to the dark side.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords (2005)

The PC version of this game was released in February 2005. This game employs an updated version of the Knights of the Old Republic's Odyssey game engine. The game takes place five years after the events of its predecessor. At this time, the Sith have gained the upper hand and the Jedi have almost been completely exterminated. Again, the player chooses whether he wants to follow the light or dark-side. The player plays "the Exile", a former Jedi Knight exiled from the Jedi Order. Enemies in this game include Darth Sion, Darth Traya, and Darth Nihilus.
