Good game to play with lightsaberspalmtreebearer | Aug. 29, 2015 | See all palmtreebearer's reviews »
My favorite part of this game was playing with lightsabers. Lightsaber duels feel more involved in this game than in any other game that I have played. The gameplay is top notch and the story is entertaining as well. I enjoyed playing with the force powers in this game and integrate nicely into battle. The only problem I have with the force powers is that there are no *real* consequences for choosing to use more dark side powers or lightside powers. You can choose all darkside powers and still go lightside in the end and vice versa.

Finally, after decades of waiting, Jedi Academy had given us Star Wars fans what we wanted in a game: nonlinear level and plot progression. And, to say the least, the force was strong with this one, and it still is to this day. The action's tight and freeflowing, the level design is vast and unaccommodating, the character customization is very fun, and there are thousands of great mods to behold. Rest in peace, LucasArts. You'll be missed, but never forgotten with this game that you've left your fans.
Possibly the greatest Star Wars game ever made.gamma_rad | June 10, 2015 | See all gamma_rad's reviews »
Lets face it. we all want to be Jedi's, and Jedi Knight Jedi Academy is here to fulfill that desire, a job he does well. incredibly satisfying lightsaber combat mechanics and a fun online community which is still very much alive make this game game worth for Multiplayer combat alone. now add to that the single player game and all the mods available for this game and you've got a great game. If you ever dreamt about dueling with lightsabers, this is the game for you.

Jedi Academy lets you play as a Jedi Padawan, Jaden Korr, who already has constructed his/her lightsaber ahead of the rest of the students. You meet famous personas from other Jedi Knight games, Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn. You're introduced to some ancient mysteries of the Sith too. Even get a trip to Korriban. On the way you advance your skills, and get promoted by Luke Skywalker. With promotion comes knowledge of new lightsaber combat style, and a chance to construct new lightsaber. You can fight old-school like, with one saber, wield two lightsabers, or even a double bladed lighstaber, like the one Darth Maul fought with. I think in 2015 it's out of place to discuss the game's graphics. Music and voice acting are good though. And, what's more important, the game has Star Wars magic to it.You'll get immersed quickly. There are also two endings to this game, something even today's AAA titles won't give us(vide Bioshock (In)finite).

Fist thing - if you are a fan of Star Wars than I don't know why are you reading this and not playing this game already. Because from all Star Wars games that I played is is on the top of the list. One thing you can expect from Star Wars is that it won't disappoint you. This game offers lots of things like special force abilities, awesome graphics, amazing fights, interesting story. Abilities - As you go throu missions you can choose a new skill that you can learn and each skill gives you totally different abilities that you will use in fights. Skills can go up to level 3 and you can definitely see how they improve your gameplay, and how you would die if you didn't have any of those. Graphics - Graphics are really good considering the year this game was made and I would say these are Midle graphics because they aren't very good, but they also aren't very bad, anyway, graphics like these won't distract you from enjoying the gameplay and I think that's the most important thing. Fights - What makes fighting in this game special is the amount of different moves that you can make and that really makes you to feel like a jedi. Story - Story of this game is unique and you will find it very surprising every time you play, there are some plot twists that you won't expect at all and the struggle to find out whats happening is the thing that keeps you playing every time. So all I can say now is that you must buy it if you want to get some good experience on gaming.
