    Jedi Academy

    Post by Pilgrim34 on Wed Apr 24, 2013 5:49 pm

    I bought this game when it came out in late 2003 and played it pretty much consistently online for about 5 years and got pretty good in the process.

    I've not played it at all for about the last year and a half but I had a brief little go on it yesterday. I have to say it brought back memories and I also noticed some similarities with DkS. The online community is still going pretty strong even after all these years, it's full of bad players who rage and ***** about your playstyle, great players who don't need to say anything to justify their success and it definitely still takes a lot of skill to be really good!

    Anyone else familiar with this old gem of a game?

    Never could get into it... I enjoyed Jedi Knight I & II, played through those multiple times, but felt this one was lacking. I think it had mostly to do w/ the fact that you start out as a Jedi which made you too powerful right from the get-go...

    I know what you mean, I think the SP mode was pretty average at best, the story was nothing to write home about and it would definitely have died after a year or so if not for the online stuff, which was quite frankly superb.

    in my opinion the jedi knight/ jedi academy series are the best star wars games ever made

    These games were fantastic.
    Easily better than the Lego Star Wars series.

    I loved the lego series too but I think the thing that made the JK series stand out was the excellent and unique combat dynamics, there's never been anything like it since.

    I can admit to liking the Lego series, but it lost it's charm after the second game, Jedi Academy games were great fun in comparison.

    The only thing I truly hated about JKA was Rosh Penin (loved killing him though) most annoying character ever.

    His model was also a popular choice for trolls online too sad
