Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast

It's a few years after the destruction of the second Death Star, and the New Republic is starting to take shape. Of course, in fine Star Wars fashion, a new threat is approaching to terrorise the galaxy, and who better to fight this new phantom menace than a failed Jedi Knight? A refreshing return to the days of good Star Wars movies, Jedi Knight II will engage you in a battle to preserve freedom and justice in the shadow of the fallen Empire.

When we last left Kyle Katarn, he had almost been seduced by the Dark Side of the Force and was busy saving the galaxy. Now, years later, he has given up on the Force and its temptations, and has gone back to his smuggler's ways. Over the course of the game, Kyle will go from rusty former Jedi to a true Jedi Knight as he battles the forces of the Empire. You will have to lead Kyle through levels ranging from Yavin and Cloud City to new locales from the Star Wars Expanded Universe on his quest to reclaim his Jedi skills and protect the New Republic.

LucasArts has wisely employed the services of Raven Software to make sure the Quake III Team Arena engine screams. The early preview version moved smoothly from first- to third-person whenever you equipped a lightsabre, and the Jedi mˆl‚e battles will make any real Star Wars fan squeal with joy. There will even be a sense of character development as Kyle relearns his old Force powers and tightens his lightsabre technique over the course of the game. Gamers starving for some old-school Star Wars action will want to remain mindful of Jedi Knight II.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
