Amazing story and a level of interactivity unrivalled to this day.
If this was backwards compatible with the 360, I'd totally still be playing it. Why oh why did you ruin the sequel Sega?
I spent countless hours on multiplayer, I don't think I ever got past a few levels in single player! I eventually got really good at it and then for some reason I just stopped playing. Weird?
Probably my most played game of all time and for good reason, it was the first Star Wars game where I actually felt like I was IN Star Wars! With the plethora of online mods and maps available to download it kept me entertained for an incredibly long time.
The missions were frustrating as hell, especially the racing mission and the hotel mission, but it also had some amazing ones. One particular mission that comes to mind is the one where you have to protect trucks carrying stolen goods, you end up taking the truck to the countryside where a contact is supposed to be waiting for you, turns out he isn't.
You can hear the patter of rains hitting the roof tops, the howling wind slamming doors shut, your feet splashing the mud beneath you and absolutely nothing else. Such an atmosphere!
I remember playing this with my first girlfriend, we would play it in the dark with the sound pumped up, taking turns to get through certain areas when we both just really wanted to turn the game off because we were scared as hell. Good times...
This game is pretty standard nowadays with almost every single third person shooter having a feature similar to bullet time, but back then it absolutely amazed me and heck, sometimes it still does. The dream sequences still scare the hell out of me.
This game had such a dark atmosphere, incredibly morbid but also incredibly fun!
This game is so good I still remember the day I got it, I asked my lovely Mother to pick it up for me whilst I was at school, I knew she'd have it so I ran to her work place, then ran home and played to my hearts content. Well, until my friend came over and told me to play another game because this was 'boring'.
We are no longer friends.
