Summary: Man, this one was definatly rushed. It is packed with a crappy story, create a Jedi, but they all look pretty gay in the end unless you are an Alien Chick. Basically you set out to become a great Jedi in a few short missions. The game makes no attempt at making things realistic on that front. Another thing I don't like is the story.
Summary: Ok so here is how this game breaks down. Time and time again I am having these babble ridden reviews shoved down my throat and it is time to chime in. This game was built for the online community, end of story. Being a long time veteran of online multiplayer games such as MOHAA, D2, HALO etc.. etc... Two of which I have built and been members of clans, owned servers, PWNT ALL.
Summary: Jedi Academy, or JK3, while entertaining, unfortunately fails to match the lofty standard set by its predecessor, JK2: Jedi Outcast. While it proclaims its unique mission selection system, the customisable characters and the ability to turn to the dark side, these changes have little overall effect on the game. The "mission selection system" only allows the player to choose the order in which the missions are played.
Summary: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy was my second foray into the Dark Forces/Jedi Knight line of games. Since I really enjoyed Outcast and the demo for Jedi Academy, I decided to plunk down some money and buy Jedi Academy. I am not sure this was a good decision on my part. I am now going to go over what I see as the good and the bad parts of the SINGLE PLAYER part of Jedi Academy.
Conclusion: The idea of the game is good however i think that the gameplay lacks a little. fighting enemys becomes boring al to quick and the bot enemys are stupid. Online the game is better and a lot of people still play it but to me this game isnt anything special and would only recommend it to big star wars fans.
Summary: The game is fun and nice on the eyes. The big problem is the AI is pretty dumb. They just stand there and shot and most the time they miss you (though that is keeping with the stormtroopers ability to shoot). Maybe I'm too used to Half life where they guys try to avoid being shot.
Summary: I've long been a fan of Dark Forces and the Jedi Knight series, however, the latest rendition just didn't float my boat the way the others did. Here's the good and the bad of it...(of note, I'm assuming the potential buyer has played one of the aforementioned titles) The good: The graphics are terrific, assuming your system can handle it, and the locales demonstrate the traditional grandness that most Star Wars games are known for.
