As a new student of Luke Skywalker’s Jedi Academy, follow an ancient tradition and learn the powers–and dangers–of the Force. Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy allows you to immerse yourself in the classic Star Wars universe as you take on the role of a student eager to learn the ways of the Force from Master Luke Skywalker. The game features customizable characters, all-new weapons, vehicles, and environments, and multiplayer modes. You’ll interact with famous classic Star Wars locations and characters while facing the ultimate choice: Fight for good and freedom on the light side or follow the path of power and evil to the dark side.
Unlike the Jedi Outcast port, Jedi Academy includes the multiplayer component. It’s been brought forward to the new age exactly as it once was, which means all of the jank and lack of balancing are still present. Don’t let that stand in your way though. Despite the relative lack of polish, wildly swinging lightsabers at one another is a blast. The multiplayer is just as fun as you remember it being.
Dated visuals and presentation issues aside, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy brings a much improved single-player campaign to the table alongside a genuinely clever and more importantly an enjoyable competitive online multiplayer offering, making it an essential purchase for Star Wars aficionados and fans of fast-paced action titles alike.
Jedi Academy was always the best Star Wars game until Fallen Order came along but it still stands up today thanks to its brilliant combat and decent story.
The PS4 version of Jedi Academy offers an opportunity to relive a prestigious Star Wars video game classic but sadly delivers little else. This nostalgic snack will no doubt scratch the itch for fans of the franchise but with an outdated, deserted multiplayer mode and an abundance of bugs and other technical issues, brings very little to justify the steep asking price for the game.
One of the best Jedi games you can play, no other game has the control you can choose over your Force powers and Light Sabers. Just wish they would make a modern followup or reboot.
Now as a person who weren’t a Big fan of jedi outcast, i was a little nervous when i picked this up. But i am glad to say that this is a great game. It fixed all most every problem i had with outcast, such as the long and drawn out levels to a better level design and other gameplaystyles that keeps the game from getting doll. The gameplay in on it self, is basically the same, and i wouldn’t have it any other Way. Even Thoe i did complain about it in outcast, but now the levels frels like it is build for this controllstyle. And the multiplayer, god the multiplayer is fun.
