This ‘Star Wars’ game an oldie but a goodie

Grant Nelson, Staff Writer

A game that may be a bit old but really hits home for me is “Star Wars Jedi Academy.” 

This game sets you as a Jedi padawan in Luke Skywalker’s new Jedi Temple on Yavin 4, and you soon find yourself with the rest of Jedi at war with remnants of the Empire led by a Sith cult. The game has you traveling across the galaxy fighting against the Sith and their huge armory of weapons.  

The game has a boundary pushing menace for fighting as a jedi against other force users. There are stages where you are fighting through hordes of storm troopers with your lightsaber. At times, this game makes you feel like a beast, while other times when facing Sith you need to be tactical. 

The game has a large variety of missions and worlds to explore that demand different play styles. The voice acting is bad, the characters feel decent but what really makes this game standout is roleplay of a Jedi knight that can fall to the dark or light. I give it a four out of five.
