What was the hardest in the Series for you?

I saw this thread on massassi so i decided to post it here What do you guys think was the hardest game in the DF/JK series for you?

this is what i said:

Dark Forces takes the cake for me since ive only beaten it once and it was a b****. Detention Center, Imperial City, and the Last Level i rememebr as being hard as hell. The Snow Level and frist 4 or so levels i found easy. It just kinda got progressivly harder. After the Dragon Jaba's ship was easy. Today it would probably take me a few weeks to beat it entirely.

I beat JK over a time period for the first time of maybe a half a month or more i remember it not being hard but being long at times, today i can beat JK in a matter of minutes

MotS was like DF at first remember the Ship level when you fall under attack? :suicide:
I could never ever find out how to get back up to the bridge and when i did i always got killed and forgot to Quicksave. The swamp levels were always a pain in the azz. It was recent and by recent i mean like 3 years ago where i figured out how to beat the last level...
spoiler:
turn your saber off??? CLEAVER
. but over time i figured it out and I could probably beat it after a few days.

JO/JA were too easy for me, yea there were some hard parts like the Doomgiver levels where every room looked the same cause of horrible texturing. And The Jedi Temple in JA annoyed me where you had to keep force jumping down to the tomb to stop the baddies. Today probably a day or 2 to beat them

This thread is making me wanna play MotS through again since i havent done it in a long time

It's been countless eons since I last played Dark Forces, and I've only ever played the first level of JK1 and that was a long time ago, and I've never played MOTS. I've only ever played JKII and JKA extensively, and I can say that JKII was harder. If nothing else, it was because of the first set of levels without the saber.

Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

I don't remember anymore

I voted Jedi Academy because halfway through the game I got a bug that prevented me from saving my game. So that kinda sucked.

Well, I was 5/6 when I played Dark Forces so I never played without cheats on. If you need god mode it's laimlame (just type it in at any time).

DF2... hmm. I guess it was kinda hard, I was only like, 10 when I played most of it and it was kinda hard. But fun.

I never played MotS.

JO was just a bunch of fun. But I'd say it was hard at some points before you get your light saber.

And I only played the first few minutes of JA before getting killed a bunch of times.

Never played DF1, DF2 was hard in spots, MotS I never played, JKII was hard before you got your lightsaber, and was still pretty hard afterwards. JKA however, was easy as s***.

I can play through most of JKII blindfolded. I'd say JA gave me the most trouble.

I found DF pretty hard, but I loved the balance of the levels - they were designed for no in-level save, meaning that the designers had to *think* in a way they don't now.

JKII and JA I found pretty easy, but JKII remains one of my top all time games (recently completed a 5th anniversary walkthrough).

JK was exhausting at times - the levels were *huge* and there was some really tough stuff.

But the one for me was MotS - level 5, the last Kyle level, where you have to get out in a very limited time, gives me trouble to this day. *Every* time I play I have difficulty!

Dark Forces. I couldn't even get past the first guy, with the yellow lightsaber. I said "Screw you guys, I'm going home"[/Cartman]

Outcast was the toughest, IMO. I never played the first Dark Forces, though. I never even got to completing that damned Outcast.

I'd definitely go for Outcast. I haven't played DF, however. But I, like most people here, thought that JA was waaayy too easy. Force Grip made killing the Dark Jedi unbelievably simple.

Probably Jedi Knight for me. Some of the boss levels I found hard at first.

OOOH this is a good debate. Okay the hardest game in the series would have to take a while to think about. I liked DF because it was like DOOM but starwars like. DF2 was like DF but with jedi and more of an ending. JO was clearly my favorite since it was my first JK game. I first played it at my friends house and was entirely impressed. JA was a major downfall since the story sucked and gamplay was only a little changed. The only thing I liked about JA was its Multiplayer but its maps were crap compared to JO's maps.

So to answer your question I would say JO since it took me a month to beat it on the first try on the hardest difficulty. It was the most memorable thing i have ever done for a JK game.

on second thought, out of all the ones i've played aside from dark forces, it would definitely be Mysteries of the Sith. The sith temple near the end confused the HELL out of me!! the final battle was very good, it really felt like star wars. Kyle was very cool in that game.

I've never played DF, and I hardly remember any of MotS, so it's really only between DF II, JO, and JA for me. Anyway, DF II was probably hardest for me. The first part of the game was pretty easy, but I always started having trouble at the first level in the Valley of the Jedi.

JO was little bit harder than JA, but they were both easy as crap.
