Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

Finally finished playing this. Had some minutes here and there over the past few months, I was able to finally get through this. Both ending in Light, and in Dark sides. The Dark side ending was lame though.

Overall, good game. Lacked some direction I usually enjoy in a FPS, but it was ok enough. The story wasn't as strong as some of the other star wars genre games, but I am forgiving. I still enjoy being a jedi.

It seemed the force powers in this one were even more enhanced, easier to use, or better balanced than in Outcast. I really enjoyed the Grip force. I found myself basically getting out of many fights with dark jedi, by simply chucking them into a hole, a power conduit, or off a high ledge. Normally, they would push you if you gripped them too long, so I picked up a Grip-Flick technique with the mouse... allowing me to toss a guy with about only half a second of grip time. At this point... you need to get your mind out of the gutter!

Very satisfying hearing the screams and people flying about. I found it to be more powerful and useful than push or pull.

Anyway, the choice of different kinds of light sabers near the end was interesting. I went with dual sabers, because I'm a bit of a swordsman myself, and not so much a pole fighter (as in going with the double ended saber). And face it, one saber is just too simple.

Overall, great game. I knocked off a point because of the fairly loose and lacking story line.
