You Must Learn, Young Padawan

AdvantagesFantastic GFX, SFX, involving gameplay, good storyline

DisadvantagesA few minor glitches but nothing major, too violent for younger ones

"...Force Powers Apart from the Star Wars tie-in and lightsaber duels, the use of Force Powers is what makes this game rise above the hundreds of other decent FPS games. These can be used in battle, to solve puzzles, to reach difficult places, etc. Each Force power has a rank of 1-3, 3 being the highest you can gain. Not only the strength of the power but also the range and effect are determined by the rank. (For instance, Force Heal, which is an ..." Read review

Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy-Time To Learn Jedi Style

AdvantagesRealistic Gameplay, Action Packed, Good Value.

DisadvantagesMay Take Time To Get Use To If This Is Your First Star Wars Game.

"...different one to the other Star Wars games in terms of the storyline you follow. The other games mostly have a set storyline, which will remain the same whatever you choose to do. Depending on how you look at it, this game can be Sci-Fi or Action. Nevertheless it is mostly thought of as action and the movies usually Sci-Fi. You choose what your character will look like through the game (discussed later in the review) and start off stranded and ..." Read review

As close as you will get to a real light sabre

AdvantagesLight sabre duels, good graphics, nice storyline

DisadvantagesThe Dark Jedi and Rancours

"...the rights to make most Star Wars games. Jedi academy is the first Jedi based game that I have played; it is the third game in a series. The basic objective of Jedi Academy is to start off the game as a Padawan (trainee Jedi) and work your way up to Jedi Knight status by completing different missions. The name given to the Jedi is Jaden Kor; the Jedi can be customised to suit your own preferences, choosing from a variety of races and genders. You ..." Read review

Padawan Learners Wanted - Apply Now!

AdvantagesSuperlative gameplay; strong story; variety and structure of gameplay

DisadvantagesAncient graphics engine; similarity with its predecessor

"...of a student (Padawan, in Star Wars language) at the Jedi Academy, who has achieved the impossible by constructing their own lightsaber without any Jedi training. Headed up by Luke Skywalker, the Jedi Academy is set in the ‘Star Wars’ universe roughly ten years after the film ‘Episode VI – Return Of The Jedi’. So a break from tradition instantly – the player no longer plays as Kyle Katarn – although he is ..." Read review

OpenGL errors lead to hate; hate leads to the Dark Side

AdvantagesJedi!, alternative endings, great story line, playable again and again

Disadvantagessmall glitches, non English servers

"...for almost all of the Star Wars canon. Using the power of the staff to syphon the force into her followers in what can only be described as an angry pegging metaphor, Tavion hopes to finish what her master could not and rule the galaxy. Much of the campaign, when you're not taking part in training missions and you will, is devoted to stopping Tavion. Your relationship with other members of the Academy are indifferent at best however our dear, darling ..." Read review

The force is strong in this one

AdvantagesGameplay is superb, Graphics & Sound

DisadvantagesI want more!!!

"...who grew up with the star wars movies to live out our fantasies of being Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader depending which side you bat for so to speak. This essentially involves you fighting you way through a star wars first person shooter, but with the added and significant bonus that at some point youíll pick up your light sabre, and a number of cool Jedi powers. The games are set just after the film Return of the Jedi, with plenty of storm troopers ..." Read review

Third Installment of the JK Saga? More like 2.6th

AdvantagesAdds some nice new content

DisadvantagesNot worthy of being the 3rd installment

"...no end, especially with the Star Wars Theme music in the background as you lock sabers. As to the control system, it is pretty much the same as your average 3rd person game. This is good in general, but can make force powers difficult to use along with the saber specials. One-way around this is to use a gamepad, although the mouse works well, it is often more suited to first person rather than swinging with a saber Unfortunately, the negatives ..." Read review

The Force will be with this game, always

AdvantagesAction, all the Dark Forces and JKII goodness

DisadvantagesNone

"I knew this game was going to be at least good when I first saw the release, ever since playing its predecessor on the GC. This not only reaches the level of perfection that Jedi Outcast was at, it surpasses it. Players are Jedi apprentices, studying the ways of the Force under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn. Gaining Force powers as you go through missions, you have to stop a Sith cult from awakening the spirit of a Dark Lord of ..." Read review

Jedi Academy.

AdvantagesNew features,good graphics and storyline

DisadvantagesMore of the same,star wars games getting kinda old now

"Review:- .................. The best star wars game yet !!! So you must be wondering how things are over here. Itís pretty cool, actually. The Masters are impressed that Iíve already built my own custom lightsaber. They even let me choose my own outfits and stuff. Better yet, theyíre even letting me choose what race I want to be. I canít be a Wookiee or a Hutt, but I can be a Human, Rodian, Twiílek, Zabrak, or Kel Dor. Not bad choices, but ..." Read review

The force is with this game!

AdvantagesBrilliant multiplayer experience, with a great community.

Disadvantages Slightly dated graphics, takes a while to get used to the system.
