Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is a wonderfully addicting lightsaber slashing quest. You play as Jaden, one of the most promising students at the Jedi Academy run by Master Luke himself. Your personal master is Kyle, from previous Jedi Knight games. You start with a lightsaber and you never look back. The missions are varied and interesting and include: searching for bombs, placing laser targets, investigating force activity, dealing with Boba Fett, and good old hack and slash sprees. The 18 missions are all relatively long and difficult making this game a good investment. In addition to your upgradable lightsaber (dual blades or staff) you have a large selection of weapons from missile launchers to trip mines, wookie bow casters to imperial heavy repeaters. You play in the third person when using the lightsaber (most of the game) and you play in the first person when using a regular weapon. There is also a very good Force system in the game which consists of six core force powers that upgrade automatically and three light and three dark force powers that you can choose to upgrade at the end of most missions. The environments are engaging, especially for any Star Wars fan. The story line is also well done.
Bottom line: this game is a blast to play, even if it gets a little annoying due to various glitches and poor cameras. There's nothing like Force Gripping a Storm Trooper and then throwing him over a ledge. This is the best lightsaber Star Wars game I've played.
