Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, the last in the Jedi Knight series, is the next game to be found in the Bargain Bin. Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, while receiving a fair score on its Breakdown, didn’t impress me much. Which is also pretty much how the entire series has gone. But the question on everyone’s mind, will Jedi Academy continue the trend, or finally improve to perfection?
Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy is a first and third-person shooter action game set in the Star Wars universe.

Jedi Academy was released in September 2003 and received positive reviews, achieving an 81% aggregate score. In September 2009, the game was re-released along with its 3 predecessors through Steam and Direct2Drive. -Wikipedia
The adventures of everyone’s favorite Kyle Katarn continue in another thrilling Jedi Knight game. And who doesn’t love Kyle anyways? He’s often been referred to as the Chuck Norris of Star Wars. And to people that care about Chuck Norris that probably means something. For me personally, Kyle as seen in these games is more annoying that the Kyle you read about in many of the books.
But I’m not reviewing the latest Fate of the Jedi book, is that series still popular? I’m way behind on my Star Wars novels unfortunately. We’re here to talk about the next in the Jedi Knight series, Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast. This time Kyle is back, and what starts with a blue milk run quickly becomes a quest fueled by anger and revenge.
She’s not listening to him, she’s completely mesmerized by the beard.

We are getting a little deeper into Imperial March, working our way to May the Fourth. Things progress on with the second Breakdown of the month. This time we’ve been playing the follow-up to last weeks game, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith. I don’t want to spoil anything too premature, but there may be some mysteries in this one, and a Sith or two…
But in all seriousness, which is something I never am, this may very well be the shortest Bargain Bin Breakdown ever clicked out by yours truly. So there is a good chance you might find a lot of filler sentences in the paragraphs. Because I’ve got to make it look like I’ve actually got something to say about this game.
Hey look, its my desktop!
