Summary: Jedi Academy is a serviceable sequel to Jedi Outcast but unlike the previous entries in the series it does not represent a quantum leap forward in quality. Dark Forces was a fun shooter, Jedi Knight was a revelation and Jedi Outcast was an exercise in near-perfection. Jedi Academy retains the same rock-solid lightsaber and Force power game mechanic of Outcast and enough enhancements to make it worthwhile.
Summary: LucasArts’ Star Wars: Dark Forces commenced a whole series centered on first-person shooter gameplay, and in 2003 came the latest installment of the franchise, Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, the first of the series without Kyle Katarn as a playable character. Is it a good swan song?
Summary: This and JKII are the only Jedi Knight games. Lightsaber combat could have had more depth, but I still deeply love this game. NOTHING will ever come close to being as cool as completing it and then going to multiplayer with all the duelists. Loading up the young emperor palpatine clone model from the last game (robed and disrobed versions!) and DESTROYING them.
Summary: I want to being this review by saying that I am by no means a gamer. I know this game came out back in 2003, but I didn't purchase it until a couple of months ago, basically because I am excited about the new Star Wars movie that they're making and that'll hit theaters in December, 2015. So I just wanted to get my Star Wars fix and to have something to do while I wait for news of the movie, which unfortunately have been few and far between.
