Retro Replay: Dark Forces XL – Part 1

This is Part 1 of my retro replay of 1995’s Star Wars: Dark Forces (XL), Mission 01: The Death Star plans: Operation Skyhook – Secret base, where Kyle infiltrates an Imperial base and steals the Death Star plans.

Retro Replay is a new feature that I’m trying now that I have more free time on my hands.  I do quite a bit of gaming, both new and retro, so why not just capture video while I play and ramble on about my impressions, while at the same time providing a pseudo-review in addition to walk through?  Sure!

If you’d like to download the XL Engine mod for Dark Forces, go here:  http://xlengine.com/downloads/

I may post an additional video later on how to configure Dark XL to work with a vanilla (retail) installation of Dark Forces.
