Can I skip the Dark Forces games and go straight to this?

Or do I need to play those to understand what's going on in this game as well as Jedi Academy?

there are a few things that might confuse you a little if you dont play them but other then that your fine theres barely any reference to dark forces in academy there might be a few characters in this game that appear in academy but again nothing major i would still play dark forces if you can still great games that is if you can get them working properly im still having problems with the game myself *Sigh*

Yes, both games have stand-alone stories and knowledge of what has gone before isn't needed. Jedi Outcast is a hard and long game (you will likely need to use a FAQ to help with the puzzles.) Jedi Academy is easier, shorter and gets rid of most of the puzzles found in JO.

Yep, Jedi Outcast is one tough game. I have bad memories of the first Nar Shadda level, which comes directly after Kyle gets his lightsabre. The one Force power you need in/for that level is Force Heal 1 and that is one of the powers you don't get!

Sadly, Force Heal becomes available about half-way through the game. Check the FAQ for more exact information. Yes, Jedi Outcast is truly a hard game and the puzzles are as obtuse as the combat is hard. I better add that I always play games on normal or hardened difficulty. My suggestion is to play Jedi Academy, as that is an easier game, doesn't have hard non-combat puzzles and you get to choose what Force Powers you have!
