Inside Mac Games has posted an extensive preview of what's sure to be one of the biggest titles to hit the Mac this fall, Aspyr's Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. The game recently entered beta and if all goes well, should be released early in the fall.
Here's a snippet from the preview:
Though JK2 runs under the Quake III engine, it can be played either as an FPS, a 3rd-person behind-the-back game, or both. In the default setting, Katarn runs around in 1st-person mode, much like any standard FPS, while wielding firearms. When switching to the lightsaber, he enters 3rd person mode, making it easier to see around him when swinging the lightsaber. However, players can switch between the views at will, making the title a little more open-ended for those that have a preference.Be sure to check out the rest of the preview.
Gameplay, however, is still faithful to the FPS genre – i.e. kill the bad guys. Players will find themselves running through a variety of environments in order to fulfill this objective, including Remnant bases, gangster towns, Cloud City, and starship interiors. The levels are both numerous and huge, and while not likely, it is possible to get lost in many of them if players aren’t careful.
Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast is available for pre-order from the Aspyr Media web site as well as the IMG Store.
