Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith [PC Game]
Developed by: LucasArts Entertainment Company - LucasArts, Inc. (1998) - First-Person Shooter - Rated: Teen
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith is an expansion pack for the first person shooter Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II.
It was developed and published by LucasArts and released on January 31, 1998. The expansion includes a single-player mode and
fifteen multiplayer maps. There are also technical improvements over Dark Forces II, including colored lighting, new textures and
models, and developments to the artificial intelligence. Mysteries of the Sith received mostly positive reviews from critics, with
praise being given to the game's story and improvements to artificial intelligence.
Star Wars: Jedi Knight -- Mysteries of the Sith takes place five years after the defeat of seven Dark Jedi by bounty hunter turned
Jedi Knight Kyle Katarn. It also features the character Mara Jade (from the Star Wars novels), a warrior who once followed the
path of darkness as the Emperor's Hand and is now Kyle's apprentice as he trains her in the ways of the Jedi. (She's also quite
attracted to him.)
The game's viewpoint switches from Kyle's perspective to Mara's as he departs to a newly discovered Sith temple to investigate
the mysterious powers within. Meanwhile, it's up to Mara to protect a Holocron and negotiate "business" with a Hutt crime boss
(not Jabba, but a Hutt all the same), all in the name of the New Republic.
As an expansion disc to Jedi Knight -- Dark Forces II, Mysteries of the Sith features much of the same regarding gameplay through
its 14 missions. However, there are a few new and different weapons, and the absence of a "morality scale" means that no
choice between the light side or the path of darkness occurs. As a result, all but two Force abilities found in Jedi Knight are
available, with five new ones added as well. Also differing from its predecessor, Mysteries of the Sith's cut-scenes are
computer-generated instead of portrayed by live actors.
Once again a multi-player option exists, enabling you to compete with up to seven others over the Internet. Of course, you must
choose your identity (there are even more to choose from than in Jedi Knight) as well as the color of your lightsaber. You
achieve rank as you become more experienced and can even use a strong character you may have developed with Jedi Knight.
