Happy 4th Birthday JKII!!

OK, apparently it is the 26th not the 28th (memory fades with age ), but I've been playing through the single player campaign of JKII again as I do each year to celebrate the release of one of my favorite games of all time.

It is interesting what has happened in these years. Many of the 'Post PC Obi-Wan meltdown' period seem to have drifted at least somewhat - at least of my old fogey co-horts Even StormHammer, who was a bastion of single-player games has become a MP addict, and leXX has become utterly addicted to WoW. Prime now has a baby, and me? I've gone from casual gamer to managing editor at GamerDad.

But Jedi Knight II remains consistent, and remains a wondeful and fun experience. I still get chill at the Yavin Trial area, it remains a cathartic experience and one of the top moments for me in gaming. And the saber combat is still unmatched in any other game.

Agreed. NOTHING can replace that feeling I got when I finally got my saber on Yavin for the 1st time. JK2 was my 1st SW game. It started out ok but when i realized I could get a lightsaber and force powers I was hooked. And don't even talk about when I found the dismemberment code . My relationship with JK2 is on and off. I uninstall then reinstall next month. Your the 1st person I've heard who celebrates (or even knows) the anniversary of JK2. I salute you sir!

Wow, it's been a while, hasn't it? JKII was -is - a great game, and I still play single player every once in a while, because JKA's doesn't touch it for entertainment value.

I remember when I got JKII. It was a birthday gift when I had my junk computer. I had to set everything on low, but even with that I was amazed. I got to play it for 15 minutes before I went to school.

Even today it is still one of my favorite games. The community isn't as big as I wish it would be though.
