This is really making me angry. Saber defense in Jedi Outcast is much better than in Jedi Academy. This is ridiculous, even when saber defense is set to maximum the saber does not block several shots. Try it for yourself. Open Jedi outcast, set saber defense to max and spawn 10 trandoshans - you WON´T get hit. They will die due to the projectiles you deflected eventually. Try it in Jedi Academy. Instead of 10 trandoshans spawn only 2 imperial officers - YOU WILL GET HIT. It is starting to vex me greatly. Is there any way to fix it?

well actually it depends on what saber-style you're using. If you're using the powerful style, yes you'll get hit alot. If you use the medium style, you'll get hit some. If you use the light style, you'll hardly get hit at all. IMO the saber defence in JA is more realistic, there's no way a jedi could block alllllll those shots.

You cannot block all shots. It depends on your saberstyle (like DarthSporky said), your sabertype (single, dual or staff) and the weapon of your emey (some weapons can only be blocked with forcepush)

this makes me angry too, if a rebel uses a pistol with second fire, loads all to the end, I'm imperial jedi in hoth and have full hp(50 HP), the shot hits me and kills me, just because I'm running, I am like WTF ??????????????

I do agree with you all that to block all shots from 10 trandoshans is something that goes beyond the most skilled jedi. It´s nonsense. The issue is that even the mindless npc in the game can hit you with some ease. I think both JO and JA have a lack of balance in saber defense. JO surpasses the commom sense, having Kyle to block thousands of shots even when running. And JA, even when at max saber defense level, makes Jaden wield the saber as my grandmother would do. It is a matter of balance. It is ridiculous to see a single imperial officer being able to break a dual saber defense with a also ridiculous pistol just because Jaden is running.

I hope the next games to be more realistic indeed. You should agree with me that for a Jedi, it would be kind of lethal to miss the shot instead of blocking it. Think about Star Wars episodes especially Qui-gonn and obi-wan in the first episode blocking all shot from the droids ans destroyers.

That would be realistic.

Well, if they're just gonna make a MP only game, just make an expansion pack of sorts. and improve the crap that JK3 brought.
