May the 4th be with you! Yes, it’s that time of year again, time for deals on Star Wars games. Now that Star Wars has finally come back into the public eye thanks to The Last Jedi and the upcoming Han Solo movie, it’s as good a time as any to be a Star Wars fan, especially a fan of its licensed games. Here’s a quick rundown of the best games you can buy on Steam, GOG, and Humble Bundle during the May 4th Sale. Don’t worry; the sale lasts all weekend.
Star Wars Jedi Knight Series
It’s not every day a franchise can jump between different game genres and manage to escape unscathed. But Star Wars Jedi Knight did. It started as the DOOM clone Dark Forces, featuring a mercenary who probably could out-gun Han Solo, and evolved into a a bunch of third-person action RPGs. And yes, the mercenary from the first game evolved with the franchise into a bad-ass Jedi. Each game is good on its own, but played together, they tell an epic tale. Just be careful of Star Wars Jedi Knight – Mysteries of the Sith. It’s not a bad game, it just has some compatibility issues.
