Movie Battles is a class-based, team-orientated Multiplayer Total Conversion for Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
THE ABSOLUTELY BEST STAR WARS MULTIPLAYER EXPERIENCE EVER!
SERIOUSLY, THIS MOD GOES BEYOND ITS TITLE.
Jedi Academy multiplayer becomes stale very, very quick. Especially when you have things like "no-laming" servers and other silly rules that kill the point of multiplayer completely, MB2 comes in and grants a competitive multiplayer star wars gameplay experience that you won't find anywhere.
Sad to see the community for this game to start shrinking :(
We live in a day and age where multiplayer titles have to copy CoD to be successful,and that's probably what the future of Star Wars gaming will look like. Unfortunate how they won't follow things like MB2 instead.
When i downloaded Jedi Knight Academy at 2010,i started to play JKA SP and started to play JKA MP.I found that page,and downloaded Movie Battles 2.When i started to play,it was so hard to play because i was newb..actualy im still newb in this mod but this is the mod that made JKA better and enjoyable with different maps/Gamemods and other stuff.I think Movie Battles II is good and i suggest it to everyone who starts to play JKA,because JKA MP,seriously ?.Its so boring as hell so just go and download moviebattles 2.
I think movie battles 2 can be better/will be better,when they are releasing new versions.
Simply put: beautiful work. Love the dedicated effort to make it as canon-honoring as possible. My only minus is the lack of ambient sound in pretty much all the maps. It should get a lower rating for that but those who respect star wars canon are a friend of mine.
Its a great game the team based combat gives you purpose and requires teams to fill a multitude of roles and the sounds of all the guns are very satisfying and the realism is pumped up significantly where blasters will spark and leave smoke effects and blast marks the lightsaber slices body parts satisfyingly and leave heat marks over walls when you miss (which can be often if you have no skill) the community is strong but can be obnoxious especially to new players who have to learn the (very) steep learing curve ultimately this mod takes the jedi knight jedi academy base slaps on a team focus and class system with a brilliant upgrade system (do you want to storm in as a trooper die because you spent points in reinforcement but luckily can come back anytime? or do you want to have a gatling gun and tons of health but must avoid death because your a glass cannon?) I reccomend the mod but get some practice in before or you will get owned and each map plays very differently so make sure you find which fits you most
