With choices around every corner from your gender and looks to choices that heavily effect the story, this game is very well done. The graphics are dated, but to be honest, it is an old game and you can't really expect anything different as this isn't a remaster or remake. Still, it doesn't hurt it since it is still one of the best Star Wars game with only one thing missing from it, HK-47. Then again, HK-47 wasn't a part of this game or story as he is from the Knights of the Old Republic games...but...it's HK-47. He should be in ALL Star Wars games lol. Seriously though, this is a fun game at a game price, so I highly recommend it.
Maybe Jedi Academy is not the best when it comes to presentation, but still it's my favorite game of the series. The multitude of special moves with lightsabers, the choice of two of them at the same time, the interesting path of the hero's development are game's strong point. It also has an interesting storyline, especially great missions on Hoth and Vjun. Mandatory for Star Saga fans.
One of my favorite games ever. I always loved Star Wars and I wanted to be jedi. In this game you can truly feel like a jedi. You can use force, you can also take part in incredible lightsaber fights. I think that jedi academy still have one of the best fightning system, you have great power how you want to fight, where to hit etc. It's really old game but i still come back to play that.
To start, let me say that Jedi Academy has one of the best stories for a Star Wars game ever written - and simple enough for anyone to understand. Freedom of choice is granted at every turn, whether to be a blaster-wielding badass (nothing beats a good blaster at your side, kid) or a Jedi who can cut down anything in its path. The game will play at a smooth 60 fps for most people with modern computers, up to 1024x768 with most of the options on Maximum. After that resolution though, the graphics are too saturated for the game to handle and everything looks too sharp and there are color blocks everywhere. The sound is great, even on the worst computers. Gameplay can be finicky (you're playing a FPS/TPS with a mouse and keyboard) which will lead to some deaths and your wrist will hurt from bending to reach the WASD keys, but you get used to it and you find a groove that works. Overall, a classic game that runs well on almost anything you put it on.
