    A great blend of FPS, Strategy and RPG

    I liked this game alot. I found that the similiarites between JA and JK were everywhere. I like the engine, and the textures and shading are simply awe-inspiring. If you have never purchased a star-wars game, and this is... Read Full Review

    This is maybe the best games in star wars saga on PC yet.

    The story in game is maybe only weak part. Main character is Jaden Korr, new jedi apprentice. He meets Rosh Penin on their transport ship to Jedi Praxeum (academy) on Yavin 4. After ship crashed, they started looking for... Read Full Review

    Welcome to the academy

    Well I would surely say that Jedi Academy is better than any of it's predecessors. The game is amazing to start of with. 1. Gameplay - Jedi Academy houses an interface similar to those encountered in Jedi Outcast or D... Read Full Review

    The game is generally fun, but seems to kind of force a lot of the combat animations. They just don't seem as smooth as they could be, which for me, kind of detracted from the gameplay a little bit. I did run into one ... Read Full Review

    Overall this game is good. But compared to Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, this game is a lot easier and a lot shorter. I was hoping for a longer and more challenging game. I was surprised at how easy this game was. My... Read Full Review

    As a sequel to one of my all-time favorite games... Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, I was really looking forward to Jedi Academy. However, this game was basically, in my opinion, just an attempt to capitalize on the Jedi ... Read Full Review

    "Jedi Academy" has lots of cool levels and is nonstop fun.

    I agree with pretty much everything in the Gamespot review. This is not just a rehash of Jedi Outcast. This is a great game!! If you like Star Wars or any of the Star Wars action games that have come out, then Jedi Ac... Read Full Review

    Very good game but could have been excellent but for the way that the force skills interact with the game environment and the fact that it is STAGGERINGLY linear (when really the whole force thing should give you multipl... Read Full Review
