  1. State of the art graphics, stereo sound, and excellent gameplay.
  2. A step down from the PC's version, due to the fact that you just can't scroll through the Force Powers fast enough. [Jan 2003, p.101]
  3. 85
    It provides a good solid story, heaps of weapons to choose from and a good challenge.
  4. Like people, this game has its share of problems, but once you get to know it, you'll likely find that it's a game worth spending time with.
  5. Otherworldly technology and techno-eerie sounds are among the touches that elevate this FPS above many others. [Jan 2003, p.173]
  6. While the PC version of Jedi Outcast blows the GameCube version out of the water, this is still a very good shooter with a lot to offer Nintendophiles, despite the disappointments.
  7. 60
    Take note, game developers: Loading and re-loading does not a fun play experience make. Give us quick-saving or give us death.
