This is just my opinion about Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. I thoroughly enjoy both games, although I prefer Outcast over Academy, especially the MP. The characters look and move a little more realistically. There are many pros and cons about each game which I won't go into details. Suffice it to say that some people believe that the Quake 3 engine is showing its age. So be it. I just hope that in the future if LucasArts develops another Jedi type game, that they combine the best of both games and give us an outstanding game. That doesn't mean that they need to jack up the FPS (like Coruscant in Academy) or create something that not everyone can play on their computer (such as Knights of the Old Republic). I don't know if they will ever make another Jedi game, but I know that I'd like to see one. In the meantime I will continue to enjoy Outcast and Academy until my computer self-destructs. (LOL). Please let me know what you think. Your opinions matter to me. May the Force be with you all. :)
:thumbsup: I agree with what you said but what i think would be the greatest star wars game would be where you could just do what you want walk around anywhere without bounderies you make your own missions and can fly to different planets but the best thing you do what the hell you like!!!!!:type:
to me the JKA characters look way better than the JK2 characters, and they stated that while making the game...
Both games do look very similar in appearance however...and if there was to be yet another sequel, Lucas Arts will have to move on from the Quake 3 engine, because like you said, it is in fact getting outdated...
Sith Lord 2003fly to different planets but the best thing you do what the hell you like!!!!!
You do this in SWG don't you? Only thing is you have to pay for it. :(
Anyway, I want to see what happens in JK4 when Jaden is on the Darkside or the LightSide. I like JK2 still and yet I still play it. Until I upgrade my connection, I admit I will not be playing JK2/3 very often. But beside that, JK3 has many bugs and raven (as I hear) are not going to make anymore patches. They made more than two for JK2. At least I know of the bugs I need to look out for. Jk3 and JK2 are just as good. The only thing which makes JK2 win is that it has been more updated with patches and is just how most of the people asked it to be. JK3 is still a little screwed up.
kylekI want to see what happens in JK4 when Jaden is on the Darkside or the LightSide.[/QUOTE]I think that JK4 will follow only Jaden's dark-side story. You'll play on the light side (Kyle looking for Jaden) or on the dark-side (Jaden planning to get more power, probably from the most obvious place: the valley of the jedi...). It's obvious that Raven or Lucas or whoever will take another graphic engine, maybe Doom 3's or HL2's.

Q3 engine IS getting old. And BTW it's Q3:TA's engine... (which is substantially the same...)
raven should definately buy the Havok Engine (Half-Life 2 uses it), if u dont know what it is download the Painkiller demo, just imagine those physics with force powers, holy sh*t! And to add a more complex combat-system, add 1 or 2 saber buttons, maybe a dash button to dodge and move a little fast or a special defense button. just seems logical to me
what I'd like is a more flexible Power setting, where you don't only have 3 levels of each, that's a bit dumb and quick passage. Maybe return to the JK1 system, where you could have Grip Lv1, but Push lv5 or something like that: the stars makes the level.
Also, I would like that Jk4 as more to offer Role playing people and clans. Like a progressive Force template. What could be good is now most if not all computer has USB ports, so, making something like a Saber handle that is Movement sensor and wireless (like a wireless mouse, ie having a base on your table). So instead of having to press keys and such, you would swing the hilt infront your computer... that might not be possible, but that would be TERRIFIC!
For me, Jk2 is WAY above Jk3 : Academy was release when it should have being in beta testing :S. Raven literaly relied on the Community to make it as good as Outcast is. They dumbed the Fighting system, removing the skill-side of it. now, in academy, all you do is Katas, mostly. Of course, some stuff, like the new moves, the new animations for both Double sabers of Staff saber, and a few tweeks here and there are good from Academy, but yet, I still see Academy as a Expension pack, but sold 50$
They need to make guns alot more fun and useful rather than just being able to beat the game only using a saber :S they should also kinda cross it with SWG, being able to go to several different planets, but controlling like academy/outcast. And have more weapon variation, blahblahblah. Theres lots more I can think of, but this is all I'll post for now.
jk2 > jk3
bring in the doom3 engine :D
