You play Kyle Katarn, the mercenary hero who successfully infiltrated the Empire. Jedi Knight continues the story of Katarn as he embarks on a quest into his past and learns the ways of the Jedi. Your father has been murdered by Jerec, the most powerful of seven Dark Jedi. Jerec wants to unlock the Force energy of thousands of past Jedi Knights held in a hidden Jedi burial ground. Your father died keeping the burial ground's location a secret from Jerec. It is up to you to stop Jerec and avenge your father's death.The Jedi Knight Demo Single Player level places you in the middle of the game, pursuing 8t88, the accountant droid turned assassin. 8t88's memory banks contain a map to the Jedi burial ground; a map which was plundered from your dead father's home. Now, 8t88 had boarded one of Jerec's cargo ships, and you must sneak onboard before the ship departs. Jan Ors, your loyal companion, will drop you off on the rooftop of a Fuel Station. You'll have to find a way into the fuel station, then navigate through a maze of tanks and pipes until you reach the fueling gantry attached to the cargo ship. If you make it onboard, you'll be well on your way toward catching 8t88 and stopping Jerec, This is a top notch game, It is a quake style (first person shooter) Game with great control & graphics, not as much action or gore as Quake, but it’s still fun! I ran this on a Pentium 150 with 16-MB & unfortunately a 1 Meg Vid card, & it looked & performed great! if you have better, like a 4 Meg 3D card you will really enjoy! For force powers use the F keys, Hint: {The key is in the Ugnaught's shack}
