Critic Reviews for STAR WARS Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

Quotation forthcoming.

Review in Spanish | Read full review

It was fun to jump back into the Star Wars universe, but bringing back a game 17 years old with a minor graphical update simply isn’t going to work, especially for a fan base of gamers so critical of the source material.

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.

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.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy brings back a game of a previous time and in its attempt to recreate the original experience, this conversion goes one step too far - or rather, not far enough. While the online multiplayer is a welcome feature, there's too many elements here that were simply not put up to date with today's standards, and the inadequate controls that were made for a format different than that of the Nintendo Switch further contribute to make this an experience that will hardly convince a lot of players.

While it's not the best the series has been – many could argue Jedi Knight II or Jedi Outcast will perpetually battle for that title – Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is still a fun and lengthy trek across the (non-canon) Star Wars universe. The multiplayer doesn't live up to its former glories, but the sprawling and semi non-linear campaign certainly makes up for it with its lightning-fast lightsaber combat and that silly quintessentially silly approach to Star Wars that was still rife in the early 2000s. Don't expect Jedi: Fallen Order, but do expect a time capsule of an action-adventure.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is a game that revels in the right kind of fan service. Its lightsaber combat is still a blast to play with, and its Force Powers provide a ton of options to make you feel like a Jedi Master. Its story and presentation haven't aged as well, and the gameplay can be a little awkward if you're at all used to modern action games. Yet, for Star Wars fans, Jedi Academy shouldn't be missed.

If you're going to play a simple and funny multiplayer game based on Star Wars franchise, Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy might as well be a fair one. But it's a 2003 game, so don't forget it.
