Kyle Katarn - Path of the Force [demo]
PATH OF THE FORCE
|Clone Campaigns required?:
||Build and Destroy
|Number of scenarios:
It has been sometime since THE BATTLE OF ENDOR in 4 ABY, and the NEW REPUBLIC, formerly the REBEL ALLIANCE is building to new heights, by wiping out all remaning forces of GALACTIC EMPIRE. Now only small clusters of Empire, or remnant, forces remain, and are having to hide out on uncolonized worlds. They are widely hated by civilians all over the galaxy. The New Republic has also made new enemies in the form of crimelords and merchants, who formerly traded with the Empire.
The New Republic have recruited the JEDI ACADEMY situated on the forest planet YAVIN IV, to aid them in this never-ending war. LUKE SKYWALKER has close connections to the New Republic, with his sister Leia Solo, and friend New Republic commander MON MOTHMA has made a decision. That the New Republic take arms against the Remnant, and flush them out by searching all the planets for Imperial activity.
Mercenary agent KYLE KATARN, a force-sensitive who recently gave up THE FORCE in fear of turning to the DARK SIDE, and JAN ORS, an agent who has been working with Kyle since she met him, have been hired to defend JANDOR III from the Remnant. Kyle Katarn doesn't know he'll soon have to rejoin, the PATH OF THE FORCE...

Even though I didn't find bugs, I wondered, where I should get the resources from. When I used "Kyle" and "Jan" (you didn't even change their names in the game to "find" the imperial remnants, the enemy already got a TIE-Fighter. Me, having no resources yet, ran back to the base and losing Kyle to the shots of the TIE...) After I lost and saw the maps layout, I decided to go to that marketplace. W00T RESOURCE SPAAM. Went T4, upgraded tower range and put up a constant tower / shield / cannon pushing until the AI resigned.
In case you don't use the Twilek's market center, you lose. In case you DO use it, it didn't take much skill to win.
Basic triggering, troop drop and dialogue. Still you didn't even rename the main heroes. Thrawn resigned after 10 minutes timer, since all he got was a scout. (Actually, every player had a scout in a corner, even player 1)
Map Design: 2
Nothing really good looking, endless plains, few trees and ore deposits. The market was basically some crates of the different resources and 2 spaceports (and 2 "people" which just stood there) I gave it a 2, since I liked the colorful res-deposits in the market :P
Instructions were not really helpful... maybe try map revealers...
Story... hmm resurrection? Well, there was no admiral I could interrogate, and the mission ended in Kyle speaking of a "giant imperial stronghold" I actually hoped I'd see it, or even might have to assault the base. Nope. Game Over - You win.
I totally expected to have nice map demo, not only 1 scenario which actually has not much to do with Kyle or Thrawn or any other hero.
