Destroying anything that gets in his way, Jerec reaches the Valley just ahead of Kyle Katarn and Jan Ors. With the help of the indigenous inhabitants of the planet, Kyle and Jan confront Jerec's Jedi and prepare for a final showdown with Jerec. If Jerec defeats Kyle, the unlimited power contained in the Valley will enable him to rule the galaxy. Are Kyle’s untrained Jedi powers enough to defeat Jerec?

    Excellent Story in an Interesting Medium

    The story of Kyle Katarn adds a major element to the events of Episode IV and fills in a story for a minor big character in the Star Wars Universe. The story takes us through the life of Kyle from Imperial Academy to rebel spy and finally to Jedi Knight. The story takes place essentially behind the scenes of the main Star Wars story pictured Episodes IV-VI. Kyle is finishing his senior year at the Imperial Academy & set to join the ranks of the Imperial Navy when the unexpected happens. While his Jedi powers have managed to keep him safe and not greatly manifested themselves yet, a senior mission opens him up to some rather deep seeded questions. He eventually crosses paths with a rebel spy team who he befriends and aids during a clandestine mission on a luxury liner and forever turns his back on the Empire. Kyle continues to aid the rebels in several vital missions without really declaring his loyalty to them. Meanwhile Kyle is on his own personal mission to find out out the truth about who killed his father & his family's mysterious past. Sparking a love interest with his rebel handler, challenging a Sith Lord and discovering the truth about his family's past told in the true fashion of Star Wars lore are part of the glittering adventures of Kyle Katarn in Dark Forces.
    The difference between a radio drama and a pure audio book is the level of detail. With the radio drama we hear move sound effects and greater voice inflection to help paint a more vivid picture. This added detail enables listeners to become more involved in the story. There is less spoon feeding of detail then is present in an audio book. Perhaps this is a big sticking point and aversion for some people when it comes to a radio version of a story (Not that a lot are made anymore). The radio drama exists between a movie and an audio book making it tough medium to follow. Audio books provide a greater utility in the sense of detail; however, a radio drama provides a better first person view point of its story. Though the audio is at time hard to hear, the elements of the story and the traditional Star Wars themes and adventure remains intact. Overall this was a very interesting listening experience. I never had the opportunity to listen to an original radio drama back when they were popular, so this was also a nostalgic moment as well.
