As 2003's follow-up to Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy diverts from the largely-linear narrative of Jedi Knight to bring forth an open-ended, player-controlled experience to the Jedi Knight simulation genre. Rather than playing as the series' main character, the saboteur-turned-Jedi Kyle Katarn, you are his student, Jaden Korr, sent out from Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy to save the galaxy once more from the dark side of the Force. Featuring a fully customizable main character and a story with two separate endings, Jedi Academy expands upon its predecessor's excellent combat, while at the same time preserving, for the most part, the quality we've come to expect from the Jedi Knight series.
If I had to point out my complaints towards this title, I would say that the narrative, while more open to player input, is ultimately slightly trivialized by the departure from series protagonist Kyle Katarn, and, though not nearly as awful as The Force Unleashed, is still a mild letdown after its prequel. In addition, ranged weapons seem to have been downgraded from an alternative form of assault to nigh-useless in this edition, limiting the player effectively to lightsabers, Force Powers, and a variety of combos. Neat? Yes. Ultimately more engaging and fun? Not really. At least give us a buffer between normalcy and Jedihood!
Still, if you're at all interested in Star Wars, or you've been playing the Jedi Knight series, or you're even looking for a good action game, there's not much I'd recommend more than Jedi Academy. It's a great ride, and it's a wonderful dose of that galaxy far, far away.
