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.
This game is amazing -One of the best star wars stories set in the EU (screw you disney) -THE single best star wars combat mechanics -Develop your own style of the force -Use Mods (Who doesn't want to play as jabba using darth mauls saber?) BUY THIS GAME
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.
