Review of "Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (PC)"
What grasps me about this game?Well for one the skill involved in playing this game is immense, from the first time you start playing this game on single player you feel like you are a Jedi!
It excels itself in both the single player modes and multiplayer modes - LucasArts certainly didn't cut any corners when they made this game. Like I have mentioned above the single player mode is great, however where this game really comes into it own is in the multiplayer. The community is one of the best, if not the best community for such a game. The incredible wealth of people who have made mods for this game is unbelievable, and not any old mods we're talking about full on conversions some even surpassing the games own features.
So, how does it play then?
The game may be but the community definitely isn't! If you're a fan of the Star Wars films, as I'm sure many of you are, then this game will interest you. For just recently a mod was released called Knights of the Force, which implements the entire SW universe into the game.
Its "slightly" dated now, isn't it?
Product Information : Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy (PC)
Manufacturer's product descriptionHidden in the depths of the galaxy, Star Wars legend Luke Skywalker has set up a school for promising young Jedi. When a ship of incoming students crash lands, you'd be right to suspect something wasn't right. Five minutes later, you'd be absolutely certain, as Jedi Academy throws you straight into a PC first-person action extravaganza, with much light-sabre waving to be done.After some initial training, the academy forms a base from which various missions are launched across the galaxy. There are ample opportunities to visit familiar places from the classic Star Wars galaxy and to meet some familiar faces along the way. There are numerous levels and quests, and each one requires a cocktail of action, guile and a bit of common sense--oh, and the occasional Jedi mind trick. These levels are pleasantly challenging and mighty good fun to play. You can call on a broad arsenal of weapons--with the light sabre available right from the start--and as you progress, you must build up your Force skills, which will ultimately help you out of many a sticky spot. If you can overlook the very occasional lapse in enemy AI, and just let the sky-high production values soak in, the game proves to be cracking entertainment. Arguably it doesn't move the whole formula forwards a great deal, but you get a thumpingly good game backed up with strong multi-player options. --Simon Brew Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy begins shortly after the conclusion of events in Star Wars: Jedi Outcast. Players create a Jedi apprentice character and join the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 to learn the ways of the Force under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn. While the young apprentice embarks on various missions to hone his skills and abilities, a mysterious group is discovered creating havoc throughout the galaxy. Until order is restored, the fate of the Jedi Academy--and the future of the Star Wars galaxy itself--hangs precariously in the balance. Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy allows players to create and customise their own characters by choosing various characteristics including species, gender, clothing and physical attributes such as hair and facial features. In addition, players can create a custom lightsaber, selecting from hilt and blade colour. As apprentices progress in their training, different lightsabers will become available, such as the double-bladed lightsaber or dual lightsabers. A unique level selection system allows players to choose their own path through the game as well as the missions they undertake to improve their Jedi skills. The game adds several new multiplayer modes and enhances existing modes that were most popular in Star Wars Jedi Outcast.
