The lights are on
Gamers have always loved the idea of using the Force to destroy enemies, but developers have rarely nailed the feeling we've hoped for. Star Wars games have been notoriously hit and miss, but a 2004 Midway title did a damn good job of presenting the telekinetic powers we've always wanted. While it's obviously not an official Star Wars game, it features protagonist Nick Scryer tossing scientists and soldiers around with the power of a Sith lord. We decided to revisit this hidden gem for this week's Replay.
Be sure to stick around for the second segment, in which we resurrect a popular new feature to chaotic results.

Oh god yes! I love this game! Played it a ton during my teen years.
fantastic game! i loved the ragdoll physics!
I remember my friend having this game, and we would literally just be in the training area and just spawn crap and use telekinesis with the giant construction ball. I never even saw the single player campaign, lol.
Brilliant game! Great replay Dan
So glad there's a replay of this, I always wanted to see it.
I have some fond memories of Psi Ops. Sadly I don't remember most of the game.
for some reason will not work on my ipad. hopefully will work on my laptop.
I miss midway too. They were such a fun publisher
That was an awesome replay!!
Reiner got screwed. Tim had a rough start but Reiner just gottotally screwed over. but still, i love You're Doing It Wrong.
Awesome second feature! You should do it more often.
I loved the You're doing it wrong segment :)
Never beat this game
Psi-Ops looked super cool with its force-like powers, and the "You're doing it Wrong" afterwards was very funny! Dan always seems to win, doesn't he?
Great Replay, you guys!
Great Episode! Never played Psiops before, but I can see how it could've been a fun game. Awesome segment of "Your doing it wrong"; absolutely hilarious to watch you guys flounder around the chaos. The best part was Reiner getting pushed into the river, so sad yet too funny.
