I’ve been spending the last 2 nights playing Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy. It’s a pretty straight forward action/shooter game at the end of it all, but there’s something insanely cool about dropping down into the middle of a group of Storm Troopers and dismembering them with your Lightsaber before they have a chance to do anything about it…
As I said, it’s nothing too original in the plot, mission types or weapon stakes. In fact, it’s the same as every other JK game. The ability to customise your character’s appearence at the start of the game is nice, but a few more options would’ve been preferred.
The game runs on a tweaked Quake 3 engine. It’s very pretty at a high res with the details turned up, but at the same time, it’s starting to show its age.
So it’s a tad uninspired, yet pretty and insanely cool. I guess that’s Star Wars down to a tee then ;)
