    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 This nostalgic snack will no doubt scratch the itch for fans of the franchise but with an outdated, deserted multiplayer mode and an abundance of bugs and other technical issues, brings very little to justify the steep asking price for the game.

The gameplay is very clunky and archaic by today's standards, but it's only fair to review a game in the context of the time that it came out. If Jedi Knight is a 7-8 because of its revolutionary design, interesting boss fights, and fun FMV cutscenes with compelling story, and Jedi Knight Outcast is a 4 with its subpar combat, and very annoying platforming sections, Jedi Academy would be about a 5-6 in the middle. Significantly better gameplay, especially lightsaber fighting, than Outcast. Less horrible platforming. There's even some minor RPG elements like choosing missions, weapons, and powers.

    All in all, I feel like they were just milking the series after Jedi Knight. That's the only one I would really recommend playing.

I didn't play the original, as I didn't have an X-Box, but I'm not sure why this game is viewed so highly. Without mods, it's an utter snooze fest.

    If the studio decided to add console mod support, my score would rise exponentially. But as for now, only get this if it's below $5.
