I picked up the complete Jedi Knight bundle on Steam during a sale some time ago. The only game I’d actually played in the collection was Jedi Knight 2, which I remember I quite enjoyed back when it was released in 2002. I was tempted to start at the beginning of the series, but I decided to go for Academy first.
It’s okay. It hasn't aged particularly well, but nevertheless,
I’ve felt compelled to keep playing through to the end. I’m not really a big Star Wars fan. Well, I like the original
trilogy. But I’ve never delved into the expanded
universe or anything like that. Lightsaber combat is a lot of fun and is the best thing about the game.
Oh, and force choking someone into the
air before dropping them screaming off a ledge has never been more
enjoyable. Perhaps not very Jedi, though.
