Yeah, I guess this is where I put this, if not, +1 useless thread count. Anyways, I'm a big time JK2 player, I've had it forever and play/mod it like, everyday. I recently downloaded a few JKA models and maps, which of course, don't work too well in JK2, and was looking to buy JKA so I could use said maps and models. But upon searching, JKA boxed normally was running upwards of $100!! On Ebay!! After more searching I finally found it in a jewel case on Amazon for $50. Personally, $50 is a lot to pay for an older game in a jewel case of all things, plus with me having only about $50 left on paypal, I ask this question: Is JKA worth the large amounts of money?
Vector Pilot;4745069Is this game really worth $50?
It depends from person to person. There are some people here who wouldn't pay a dime for it anymore and think it should be dead and burried. On the other hand, some people think it's the best Star Wars game ever and would gladly pay $50 for it. I think it's not worth that amount of money considering how old it is. But, it's your money and your choice, so the only opinion that really matters is your own.
I can tell you, though, that singleplayer is far worse than in Jedi Outcast. Multiplayer quality is a matter of opinion. Again, it depends from person to person. Some people say Jedi Outcast' saber system is better than JA's. Others preffer Jedi Academy. With all the mods out there, you should be able to find something you like. If you decide to buy the game, ofcourse.
Hmm. I'll probably buy it, just because noone really makes any good mods for JK2 anymore.
$50? No way, with a little persistence you can find it for a mere fraction of that. If it's replayable games you're after, $50 could be spent far better. JA is a bargain bin title at best, given that it was already a budget title the day it was released, retailing at a mere £10 over here (standard is £17.99 for budget titles and £30 for major releases).
From a purely fiscal point of view, that's a lot of buck and not a whole lot of bang. And if I'm being honest, if your best reasons for buying a specific game is because you want to play a few maps, and not because you'll enjoy the game, then you should ask Morpheus for the blue pill on that one.
As far as ebay goes, it's rarely (if ever) worth bothering with. Most ebay sellers just use it as a platform for legitimized cons. Scientific case studies prove that the chances of getting a good deal are inversely proportional to how much you actually want the item in question.
And when it comes to good mods.... JK2 and JA aren't the only moddable games out there, y'know. :uhm:
Other games have mods which make JAs seem redundant in terms of style, quality, and fun factor.... One such mod I've been looking at rather a lot lately is Oblivion Lost 2.2 for S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow Of Chernobyl. It's an extremely harsh and unforgiving mod, where from the start of the game you'll need every scrap of skill and instinct to survive, but that makes it more of a thrill-ride than any other game I've ever played and overall it's one of those gameplay experiences where you'll always find yourself wanting more.
Of course, I don't mean any slights against JA's modders. I'm sure they're capable individuals, but JA doesn't really let them do a whole lot, no matter how you spin it.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Is this game really worth $50?
lol no. Most new games aren't even worth their full $50 price tag, much less a 5-year-old game.
Not sure where you looked, but I just found it on Ebay for $0.99 :uhm:... and I didn't even pay $50 for it when I first bought it retail, and that was soon after it first came out, so if I were you I would not even consider paying that much for it.
you can walk in any game store.. right now they sell games for a much cheaper than $50...
£10 here in England at the moment.
$9.99 last time I saw it in Wal-mart
I saw it at an electronics store on sale for $5 CND :S
