It's the perfect Star Wars game for me, spent a lot of my time as a young teenager playing this. I've come back to the game on and off for the last ten years and I still have fun. In that time I also had the pleasure of moderating/reviewing on jk3files.com, though unfortunately the site was closed down for good almost a year ago now.

Keeping it short but to summarise, I had the most fun (multiplayer) in this game, cherished many moments and met some great people. I think I racked up close to six hundred hours on Xfire, vague memories of playing it on a laptop with dial-up connection. It was the only time I took part in ESL and briefly got to the top spot in solo and team duels respectively. Unfortunately I lost contact with a lot of jk3 players over the years, however I do understand that JKHub have a wonderful community that has attracted many to there website, maybe I will venture there soon.

Honorable clan mentions (apologies if I missed any out, hard to remember in 13 years): SNJ (1st ever clan), reflex (self created), o³, nL, TW, JAWA, JK, TGE, TW, roGue, TNA, JO, WGO, ICE, sW, and many more.

Just as I go to end the review I've also noticed that Xfire officially closed too - as of 30th April 2016. So from someone who has a lot to be grateful for, to the xfire community and the jedi academy world: thank you for giving me some of the best times in my gaming history.

It's an enjoyable title. The lightsaber combat is great. The story is okay. Unfortuantely the ending wasn't the best. But it still provided a good few hours of fun.

They don't make games like this anymore. Campaign is great, and the Movie Battles II Community is active, fun, and addicting. A necessity to all SW fans for it's extremely realistic and intense lightsaber combat system.

For those of you that hate reading, there's a condensed version of my rambling at the bottom of the paragraph.

Thought I'd write a review for this game but, the hours I have invested in it speak for me in all honesty. This game is the epitome of my STAR WARS wet dreams. Custom Jedi, Lightsabers, The Force, and Stormtrooper dismemberment; what more could you ask for? The story campaign is really good and provides a good time for everyone. Luke Skywalker is voiced by Mark Hamill and John Williams' original STAR WARS score plays throughout the entire game. The fanservice levels in this game are just literally off the charts! However, where this game really shines, in my opinion, is the mods. This game becomes ten times better once you start sinking mods into it. The moding for this game is super easy and definitely add to the experience once you've done all you can with the vanilla game. The mod that gave me over 400 hours by itself was the MOVIE BATTLES II multiplayer conversion mod. I personally believe the MOVIE BATTLES II mod is the best possible mod to get for this game as it is regularly updated and transforms the battle mechanics of the game completely to make it feel like a more realistic STAR WARS experience. And that is just one of the thousands of mods for this game floating around the internet.

So in short, game by itself is great. The Story is ok and the STAR WARS fanservice is seemingly endless. Game with mods is fantastic, tons of mods that add the experience in many different ways. Highly recommend this game for any person who has ever wanted to swing a lightsaber.

Hello everyone. This is an amazing game, but unfortunately the community is not as active for being a 10+ year old game. Join this Discord to meet with new players and such for events/grouping to keep in touch. https://discord.gg/gFKwH85

Gameplay in this game is something unique and I think everyone should be able to experience towards a high level. There are also numerous mods others like to play like MovieBattles people love to play. This game is perfect for casuals or players looking for a high skill gap game.

This is a fun game that you can play for a long time, over, and over, and over again. Sure the graphics may not be the best, but give it a break! This game was made in 2002!

This game is one of the best Star Wars game out. I got this game because I wanted to play the multiplayer with my friend and after playing the game with him I instantly fell in love with it. One day i was bored and had nothing to play and decided to play the singleplayer and after the first few levels I couldnt stop playing but if you want to enjoy the singleplayer more you should create a file that enables the dismemberment in the game which is infinitely more fun to mess around with. I recomend this game to all who like great lightsaber combat. 8.5/10
