It's very similar to Jedi Outcast. Where I played Outcast over and over for years, I only owned this game for original Xbox and played it through only once. That being said I just recently purchased it for PC and can't wait to play it through again. The graphics are similar to Jedi Outcast, perhaps a bit better. I can imagine the controls will be much better on PC compared to a game controller, simply due to all the different force powers. After playing Jedi Outcast on PC back in the day and moving on to Xbox later that was the one thing I remember being weird to me - moving from the keyboard to a controller. The storyline is pretty good and the length of the game is pretty alright as well. This is another game I definitely recommend if you're into action type Star Wars games - you really won't be disappointed.
If you love Force powers and lightsaber combat, look no further. This is the quintessential, ultimate Jedi adventure game. It takes everything Jedi Knight II did and improves upon it. The only aspect that may be somewhat of a disappointment is the story, but otherwise this is a truly amazing Star Wars experience. The online multiplayer is also unrivaled and unparalleled. There is also a thriving modding community who continues to reinvigorate and elongate the longevity of this title. I was hoping we'd have another Jedi Knight title by now, but this is still the best Jedi adventure game to date.
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.
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.
