Now Playing: Star Wars – Jedi Knight – Dark Forces 2 and Star Wars – Jedi Knight – Mysteries of the Sith (1998)

This is actually the only one of this series I had never fully played before. I remember downloading a shitty ripped version of it on dial-up back in the day, and without the cutscenes or a proper 3dfx card it was just too ugly and confusing to get into at the time. I think I tried one more time later and again just found it too ugly to mess with. This time, after over an hour of fucking around trying to get the game to run with 3d acceleration on without lagging or crashing, I finally got it running at max in all it’s 90s 3d glory. Yeah, this was right at the awkward dawn of the age of 3d, back when everything had just made the leap from 2d into a disgusting, blocky mess of polygons.
