A great classic, movement is a little jumpy and a lot of the challenges are based around your a slightly wonky force jump but the challenge of the movement becomes a part of the puzzle. Overall an extremely fun yet challenging game. Always a good story with any Star Wars game also.

Classic Star Wars game using the Quake III engine. Despite its age; the saber combat still is better than the Force Unleashed games. One well placed saber blow can be lethal like the in movies.


Single Player is fun to mess around in but MP is where its at. The game still has a small active community. The community is kinda cringey though.. They have a silly Bushido-esque honor code that's enforced like a religion on all the servers.

I am an avid Star Wars fan but I had never played this before. I just completed the single player campaign and the story was epic. For once they didn't copy other story plots from other movies, it was sort of original.

The combat is what is the most fun aspect of this game. And I feel the graphics are still "good" enough for today's technology. Also when you are done with the game pick up Star Wars Movie Battles II, an awesome mod with endless hours of Jedi slaying. I think it's more satisfying than "Battlefront". Did I say you can slay Jedi in this?

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 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.

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.

This game is a ton of fun and is still one of the best star wars games out there. The single player is fun to mess around with and play till you beat it but the multiplayer is where the fun is really at. There are still a ton of people who still play the game so you can hop right into a server and start fighting. The saber combat is incredible, Fluent and a ton of fun to playb with. If you think you are going to lose a battle one good timed and placed swing can even the match quickly. For how cheap it is I think it is a game worth checking out.

I absolutely loved this game. Parts reminded me of older games, when you have NO FREAKING CLUE how to continue, but I suppose that's because it's an older game.

So this is the second SW Game i've came across and played, i've not beat it but it has good combat, customization, lightsabers,you cant free roam but its close, you pick a mission, each has a big map to it and two missions for each planet/plane as far as i've seen also you play as a character you made!

PROS | Make you own character. Customize lightsaber!, have guns and your lightsaber at the same time, MP (Multiplayer)

Cons | click here - https://steamcommunity.com/app/6020/discussions/0/619568793867084507/ and do what eternal says , do this after installing or you will get an instant crash..

and it wont ♥♥♥♥ing record with bandicam!!!

(online: still people online - adds replayablity even if your stuck in single player)

also go to JK Hub for mods for this

so all in all - 4/10
