O.K. I have a predicament. I have a little extra cash to blow after my birthday, and the start of my new job. Anyway, I bought JKII quite a while ago, and loved it. Now that I have more money, I was thinking of buying either Jedi Knights III: Jedi Academy, or Knights of the Old Republic (or both). Problem is, a lot of my friends have JKIII, and told me it was terrible, compared to JKII! But, I've looked around, and it seems to still have a sizable community with it. So, anyway, is JKIII worth my purchasing it? I assuming that since so many online people seem to like it, It must be good. Is it a good game, or is it not?
Go to ur friends house and try it...or buy there copy off them
The single player in Jedi Academy is a joke compared to Jedi Outcast, but the multiplayer has more depth, with the siege mode.
But if you think of either JA or KOTOR, pick KOTOR. Especially if you got a lot of time on your hands ;)
Well I think JA is a realy fun game that is hard to get board of online,
The graphics in jk3 are much superior. However, outcast had more class.The new saber types are a blessing and a curse. You'll have to try it out :p
The graphics are IDENTICAL! It's the same engine!
O.K. First off, thank you everyone who responded, this is helping a lot. Secondly, what did you mean when you said the new sabers were a blessing and a curse? Thirdly, games with the same engine can have different graphics. Look at all of the games using the Quake III engine. (I'm not saying this is the case here, as I don't own the game, I'm just saying it's possible). Like how EF2 had much better graphics than EF1, but they use the same engine . . . . What specifically is wrong with the single player (besides the insanity of sending a new student to Byss), and what is siege mode? (sounds interesting . . . . )
What I don't like about the single player is that it tries to be non linear, but ends up being non story.
Siege mode is like assault in many games.
