Sometimes older games seem superior in certain ways. This game is one such example. Yes, the graphics are somewhat primitive by today's standards, but it beats the days of rendering using sprites like Dark Forces, etc. Unlike the rich graphics that are mostly non-interactive (like The Forced Unleashed), this game has worlds with vast layouts of buildings and rooms that you can get yourself lost in (can be overwhelming at times, but it's an exercise for your brain). Be prepared to think outside the box and to solve puzzles (not overly complicated, but can require some legwork). Also, this game has a LONG story line by most standards. I finished TFU in about 17 hours; this one took me 33 hours. You will die again and again; you almost have to die just trying different ways of advancing in the game. The checkpoints are few and far in between relative to how often you will die, so be prepared to save the game after winning a difficult battle (or when you anticipate one).
To summarize, this game is a rich experience, and well worth the sale price when those come around. Enjoy.
