Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is taking place after the events chronicled in its predecessor. Players begin the game in the prestigious Jedi Academy led by Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn. As Skywalker's apprentice, players must learn the ways of the Force and embark on an adventure spanning more than twice the locales featured in 2002's game. Jedi Academy blends third-person lightsaber battles with first-person exploration and shooting. In addition to honing their skills with the weapon of the Jedi, players can fight enemies using a blaster, blaster rifle, Wookiee bowcaster, Imperial repeater, and more. Players will use these weapons to investigate and neutralize a new organization threatening to upset the order maintained throughout the galaxy.

In this franchise you will assume the character Jaden with his mentor Luke Skywalker. Jaden can actually be customized to suit your gender, race, and outfit. It makes the game unique and personalized. What’s different in this game is that you already have your lightsaber right at the start, something not true in the Star Wars story.

It will start as a usual training camp except that you will be greeted by an attack against your aircraft. It will then crash where you will meet Rosh who will turn to be your jealous friend and classmate. You will have to undergo a short training to prepare you for the coming missions. Throughout the game, Jaden will travel across the galaxy, this where the missions will start to come in. Missions usually lasts for an hour but some can take as little as just five minutes.

You can play four missions to begin with then move back to the academy to train. This may sound time consuming but it’s worth the time because you can finish the next level much faster. The missions vary to a great degree. The first set of missions has a reconnaissance type objective where you will have to rescue fellow stormtroopers in action, although some players may find the early parts boring. As you progress through the training and the game the challenge also gets tougher. It’s like a real academy where the level of difficulty needs to increase as you go deeper into the study.

Using the lightsaber begins with the easy tasks like pull, push, speed sense etc. but as you advance the skills gained will be more advanced allowing you play in higher levels of the game. The weapons are also very interesting which in turn makes the in-game fight scenes look superb.

The game which uses Quake III engine is not that impressive. The character models are just plain and are not as detailed as most of the newer games, however, the lightsaber has been given proper depiction. It radiates light across the screen as the fight scenes are going on. On the other hand, the audio seems to be very mundane. It would have been a lot better if they had added new soundtracks. But still the game has lots of action and engaging scenes which makes it a valid Star Wars franchise. All said Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy gets the thumbs up.
