Cool story, worst f-ing controls EVER... you will be stuck on the same crap for a long time because some idiotic BS is keeping you from completeing the level, but still has a cool story.

The Jedi Muffin went: DIE BAD REVIEW!! DIE!!! Ahem. Now I have fixed the problem, you can see on my profile that I've spent 8 hours (in one day) on Jedi Academy. Ty for all the support on fixing this problem for me and if anyone needs help with this game, I'm more than happy to help.

Ultimately, I totally recommend this game.

*Uses the Jedi Mind Trick* You will buy this game for $9.99.

I remember playing this game back when I was in high school, the lan battles at lan parties and much more where fun, I always wanted to play the story to see if the campaign was as good as the multiplayer and it delivered.

For being a very old game the story campaign drives you through a new side of the force, sadly is no longer cannon thanks to Disney hahahaha.

Didn't know what time it was and the lights were low
I leaned back on my radio
Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll 'lotta soul, he said
Then the loud sound did seem to fade
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase
That weren't no D.J. that was hazy cosmic jive

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

I had to phone someone so I picked on you
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too
Switch on the TV we may pick him up on Channel Two
Look out your window I can see his light
If we can sparkle he may land tonight
Don't tell your poppa or he'll get us locked up in fright

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us
But he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it
'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me
Let the children lose it
Let the children use it

Getting this game to run properly on windows 10 is the biggest pain in the ♥♥♥. That being said. This is one of the best Star Wars games ive ever played. Personal recommendations: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy, Battlefront 2 (the old one), Rogue Squadron.

This is possibly one of the greatest star wars games ever conceived i've been playing this game since it launched back in 2003 via the discs, only recently gotten the steam version but Jedi Academy is the pinnacle of Lightsaber combat in any star wars game and no game will ever match it again. Do yourself a favor and get Jedi Academy and the entire Jedi Knight series as a whole they are all worth it.

Finally, you have two lightsabres or dual lightsaber just as Darth Maul had, you can customize them, just as you can do with your character. The story isnt not so strongly bind together as in Jedi Outcast, but at least you will visit many more Star Wars worlds. Every encounter with Siths is its own reward for you to enjoy the fighting system.

This has without a doubt has the best lightsaber combat system. It doesn't feel like a hack and slash like most sword fighting games, it feels like you actually have to be skilled at their system do succeed.

Had the boxed game when it first came out and played it to death (along with all the others in the JK series).

The game improves on JO in almost every respect and focuses more on lightsaber combat than its predecessor with great result. It's simply a brilliant game (even by today's standards).

Great memorable levels, great combat and just great fun. I wish we got Star Wars games like this these days. It beats Force Unleashed at every single thing it does.

Just started playing this game again, and the gameplay isn't as smooth as I remember but it's old so that's to be expected. Still fun and very nostalgic.

Me downloading this game, "alright it's and old Star Wars game, probably will be good".
Me playing singleplayer, "good, not as good as I thought tho"
Me playing multiplayer, "I wonder if I can get into a game with people"
Me playing mb2, "I can gladdly kiss my life goodbye"

OK but seriously the singleplayer was semi-linear and repetitive and the non modded multiplayer was hard to find actuall people playing, The only reasons I am recommending this game is because of Movie Battle 2 (Better than EA's ♥♥♥♥) and the graphics (only when set up to max)

To the fact that it is and old game it will crash randomly but I have rarely experienced it but I know some people have problem where they can't run it.

My Overall rating for this game would probably be a 7.5/10 for having such a great Movie Battles 2 community and half decent graphics.
