The Star Wars love on GOG.com continues with the arrival of three more titles on the service: Jedi Knight, Republic Commando and Starfighter.
Jedi Knight is the sequel to Dark Forces. As the name implies, players now could finally get their hands on a lightsaber and feel what it’s like to be a Jedi. The game included FMV cutscenes, a 3D graphics engine, clever use of your character’ Force powers and some brilliant level design.
Republic Commando is an underrated game that gives players a chance to command a squad of elite clone troopers in missions that take place after the second film of the prequel trilogy. It is very much a first person shooter at heart but the basic squad commands made the player feel more involved in looking after his comrades than many games do even now. Though the campaign could have been a little longer, it is made up for by the fantastic production efforts in visuals and audio.
Starfighter attempts to carry on the legacy created by Rogue Squadron but tries to make it more narrative driven, basing the story on the prequel trilogy. It doesn’t hit the same highs but is still a very nice looking game.
In addition, the remaster of adventure classic Grim Fandango is also available on the service. Considered the last great adventure to come from LucasArts, it’s a wonderfully stylish game that fully showcased the talents of the studio.
