Star Wars: Dark Forces is a FPS set in the Star Wars universe, a viewpoint that’s rather untypical by Star Wars standards. You take control of a mercenary who is hired by the Rebel Alliance. The story features many familiar characters from the series, taking place during the original trilogy. You explore areas and shoot a numerous amount of enemies contained within them. The gameplay is very much in the same style as Doom, you explore a large open area, find keys to unlock doors, and shoot enemies. It's old-school first person shooting with Star Wars characters and locations.
