Description

Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy is the sequel to Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast. The player is cast as Jaden Korr, a padawan at the Jedi Academy taught by Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn. Both the character and his lightsaber are to be created at the beginning of the game. Throughout the game, the player will acquire several force powers and weapons, such as lightning and the Tenlos Disruptor Rifle. As he progresses through the different missions, he may be seduced by the dark side of the Force...

Trivia

Manual error (pg 30): the DL-44 Heavy Blaster Pistol (the default blaster) does have an ammo type: the Blaster Pack and the alternate attack (charging the blaster for a powerful shot) does work in the single player game.
