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.

Last entry in the Jedi Knight series, Jedi Academy is a First Person Shooter (With Third Person fights when wielding your lightsaber) where you create your own character. Choose the gender and the race of your Jedi apprentice is a great idea. The gameplay is similar to Jedi Outcast. However, you start immediately with a lightsaber. Furthermore, there are three types of sabers now : single, dual wielding and double (like Darth Maul). The campaign offers a cool story where you travel the galaxy, accomplishing and investigatin missions for Luke Skywalker. Kyle Katarn is also present as a cameo. Oh and you can join the dark side too! I had a lot of fun playing this game over and over again. It's a must have if your a Star Wars fan.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is the sequel to Jedi Outcast, taking you out of playing as Kyle Katarn and allowing you to create your own new apprentice. Jedi Academy looks and feels the same as Outcast, using the same graphic engine and gameplay elements. Everything is solid, from sound to controls, and those familiar with the other Jedi Knight games will find no surprises here. What is new, beyond the character creation system, is the ability to go out on a set number of varied missions. You can pick and choose through these as your character advances, and have the ability to play them all or just a few. Each mission is a shorter objective on several familiar planets in the Star Wars universe, and offers a non-linear feel to the story. Overall, Jedi Academy is a new spin on the Jedi Knight formula, but includes the best elements and characters from the past games. This is a great entry to the series overall.

I remember playing this 10 yrs ago, and just recently bought it on GMG. The graphics are still decent for its age, the gameplay is still great especially with all the cool jedi tricks you can do like force push, pull, mind trick and lightning. There is still an active multiplayer community especially with a cool new multiplayer mod called MovieBattles 2, that lets you play in multiplayer maps from the Star Wars movies like the Death Star and that scene from Phantom Menace with Darth Maul vs Obi Wan and Qui Gon. Definite buy if you're a Star Wars fan.
