About

STAR WARS - Dark Forces uses the Jedi game engine which was developed for this game exclusively. At the time the game presented new features of first person shooter genre, one of which is the ability to look up and down and also it presented the new approach to level design with multiple floors.
The main protagonist of the game is a mercenary Kyle Katarn, who works for Rebel Alliance. The story takes place when he discovers the "Dark Trooper Project" of Empire. One of its segments is the development of a series of powerful battle droids and armored stormtroopers.
Critics praised the MS-DOS and Macintosh versions because of its innovative level design and technological advances, while the PlayStation version was highly criticized for bad graphics and low FPS rates. A sequel called Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II was released in 1997.

If someone made a Star Wars mod for Doom, it would look a lot like this. It's not the actual Doom engine of course and there are some advancements (jumping, usable items) but for the most part it plays pretty similarly. The levels aren't as well designed but have some interesting aspects to them like (minor) puzzles and actual objectives. Because it's not a straight run-and-gun experience it's not exactly the same, but if you enjoy the original Doom gameplay and like Star Wars this will provide a refreshing change of pace.
