From the Manufacturer
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is a dynamic single and multiplayer action experience featuring an all-new epic story. Players are immersed in the role of apprentice at Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy where they learn the power - and danger - of the Force. Amidst a multitude of complex and richly detailed Star Wars environments, including twice as many unique locales as those in Star Wars: Jedi Outcast, players face a variety of powerful and insidious enemies.
For the first time in a Jedi Knight series game, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy allows players to create and customize their own characters by choosing various characteristics including species, gender, clothing, and physical attributes such as hair and facial features. In addition, players can create a custom lightsaber, selecting from hilt design and blade color. As apprentices progress in their training, different lightsabers will become available, such as the double-bladed lightsaber or dual lightsabers.
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy begins shortly after the conclusion of events in Star Wars: Jedi Outcast. Players create a Jedi apprentice character and join the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 to learn the ways of the Force under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn. While the young apprentice embarks on various missions to hone their skills and abilities, a mysterious group is discovered creating havoc throughout the galaxy. Until order is restored, the fate of the Jedi Academy - and the future of the Star Wars galaxy itself - hangs precariously in the balance.
While players are able to accomplish more by using the lightsaber in Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, they also will have a variety of weapons - new and old - at their disposal including a blaster, blaster rifle, Wookiee bowcaster, Imperial repeater, and a Destructive Electro-Magnetic Pulse gun. A unique level selection system allows players to choose their own path through the game as well as the missions they undertake to improve their Jedi skills. The game adds new multiplayer modes and bring back the most popular modes from Star Wars: Jedi Outcast.

From the outset, you realize this game is all about light saber battles. This may or may not be a big plus for you, but it's what I expected from the very first Star Wars themed game. Even as an inexperienced jedi, you can easily deflect blaster fire like it "ain't no thang." Since most of your opponents can do the same, your blaster quickly becomes second fiddle. You start off the game as a new student on the way to the academy to learn the ways of the force when you are thrust into battle against a cult of jedi (outcasts?) who seem to have developed a way to drain force power from the universe. Your training turns into trial-by-fire as you are sent to investigate this mysterious cult and learn what their plans are.
As you are assigned to different missions, you are given a choice of light sabers and various force powers to can add points to. These include Light powers such as Push, Pull, Protection, and Heal, and Dark powers like Lightning, Grip, Rage, and Drain. As you complete each mission, your skill levels increase and your force powers increase their effectiveness as a result. While this is a nice touch, you start to wonder what the purpose of the academy is, considering you're not learning anything there.
No matter, the focus of this game is on jedi battles, and that is where this game shines.Read more ›
The artwork of the game is outstanding as the look of everything from ships to bars is authentic to the Star wars setting. Seeing the passenger ships come and go as well as listening in on conversations of characters in the game was amazing. On more than one occasion, I became totally immersed in the story and settings and was in awe of the detail and complexity of the game. I especially enjoyed the Hoth levels, as it was great to explore the Rebel base from "The Empire Strikes Back" and ride a Tauntaun. Other locations of note included Coruscant, Yavin 4, and Tattooine in addition to a host of new locations.Read more ›

This is the best of the JK series yet! Custom lightsabers and people. Debug commands (as most JK games). And driable space
