As always, the biggest compliment I can give any retro game is that I will continue to play it. With Star Wars: Dark Forces there is a definitive ending (which I’m dangerously near!!! *gasp*) I will continue to play it and probably hunt down it’s sequels. When you are competing with fully rendered 3D war simulators, that’s a near impossible statement to make for a game practically older than the youngest member of my family… But make it, I shall.

Full Review:

FYI everyone, if any games are running in a small window in the middle
of the screen or a window in the upper left corner using dosbox then just
edit the CONF FILE by double-clicking it.
try changing output from surface to overlay(or some other choice).
try changing both fullscreenresolutionwindowresolution to fixed.
try changing scaler from NONE to one of the other choices.
by messing around with these values you should be able to get the game
in full screen mode.

finally a game that DOESN′T need to be MOUNTED, or countless
hours lost screwing around trying to get up and going....I just unzipped
and played using dosbox.
and for those of you who hate dosbox first try tinkering with it′s
CONF file, open it by double clicking it to edit stuff, under CPU change game CYCLES from auto(slow) to MAX(almost 60 fps?) and change the scaler from
the default to something else, I changed it to SUPEREAGLE and the game looks

a very good game that I used to play in the 90′s....ah good times.
ok for those of you who are new to dos games on windows the first thing
you need is WinRAR or a similar program(just google it) then download
and set it thing you need is DosBox(again google it). WinRAR
will let you EXTRACT files you download,rightclick on the downloaded file
and select extract will be extracted to a default folder.
now install dosbox, ok so the easiest way to play the games is to dragNdrop
the games .exe file onto the dosbox icon within the dosbox folder, so for dark forces you would drag the dark.exe ontop of dosbox application.exe , it′s not as hard as it sounds...hope I got the instructions correct,if anyone can give a better explanation then plz do so seeing as I am not so good at explaining things.

If your looking for the sequels for this incredible game, then you want to look up the Jedi knight series. The best jedi games ever made.

I still vividly remember this game from when it first came out, and it was revolutionary for its time. The graphics and game-play were amazing, and it really pulled you into the world.

thanks 46yovirginguy, I could never understand why it was always in a small window when I played it before but now it is full screen well sort of.....there are borders to the left and right but I don′t care at least it is not a small window anymore. love the music in this game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A bit buggy with the controls. Can use either left mouse or arrow′s on key board to move. Right mouse button to shoot and space bar to activate doors etc.

Will work only with a virtual dos program such as dosbox. I myself find dosbox complicated so I use dosblaster 3.0 which runs dosbox for you. You will need to also have dosbox installed but you don′t need to mount drives and so on. Dosblaster does it for you

Star Wars Dark forces I give a 3.5/5 for it′s time.

    very good game especially if you love star wars!
    best of the series imo hate the non lore friendly oh hey look now im a jedi crap.
    sound and cool factor were actually best features graphics were low par at best.
    if you dont have it buy it for the sound track alone!

    Hi Everyone!

    How can I get to run the dos version. I have windows 8.1 and no idea how I can install old games

  10. Evelin says:

    Met a girl in the wasteland once, real pretty.
    V.A.T.S said I had a 0% chance to hit that
    10/10 realism

  11. lord Krueger says:

    I always heard there were X-rated Easter eggs and cheat codes in this game.

  12. punktual says:

    Yes sure about 7or vista. I have not played this game in many years because of the CD compatibility issues Star Wars!

  13. Spearman says:

    As far as changing the buttons if you don′t have a programmable keyboard there are 3rd party software out there for free. Some take a minute to get rite but once the profile is set your good. Just google it key remapper or something similar

  14. Solozzo says:

    @ Muzza You can emulate dos using Dosbox and play it through that.
    You can find it at .

  15. siren-girl says:

    The best game in my life;
    councellor palpatine dù càzz!
    (frase francese).

  16. M.Molli says:

    It was better than Battlefront/Battlefront II in that the stormtroopers didn′t roll around on the ground like some sort of super action men. Seriously, how did their helmets stay in place while they were doing that crap?

  17. Patfanz says:

    Eh, it was OK. I played it a couple times back in the day. HeXeN took up way more of my attention though so this fell by the wayside 🙂

  18. The Dude says:

    Still have the cd on ps1 and its very fun game but ps1 frame rate was bad. Can′t wait to download here and run it on dosbox for good frame rate.

  19. Cronnel says:

    i love dark forcs!!!!

    i loved it from the day i got one for my brother,
    but he is stingy and wont let me play it.

  20. Desertfox says:

    Yeah! One of the best Star Wars games I played ever! Even if not a real Star Wars enthusiast, I enjoyed this game very much. It was a decent and solid made shooter with great varying missions and enemies…

    I can′t really say what engine it uses, but it can compete with other great FPS games of it′s time (including Doom, of course)… 😉

  21. Al Gore says:

    I remember having the demo from the disk and it would loop you around this one level, when you′ve finished looping it says Level complete.

  22. roamer says:

    This was the best FPS back in the day and was surpassed by its sequel Jedi Knight which is the best FPS in the history of mankind. I remember how revolutionary Doom was when it first came out and this game was just so much better with its awesome storyline and choice of weapons. Despite the fact your character was not a jedi yet and could not carry a lightsaber like its sequels this game still managed to be one of the best, most memorable, and fun FPS′s I ever played. The level designs and graphics were very well done and the sound was superior. The dark troopers were nasty and you got to fight Boba Fett. I had both the Dos version CD for this and the win95 version CD but neither will work on Windows XP. Many abandonware sight downloads have the same problem with their download. This download does work in xp which is just fantastic. Not sure about 7or vista. I have not played this game in many years because of the CD compatibility issues. Now I can finally play it again!
