Movie Battles is a class-based, team-orientated Multiplayer Total Conversion for Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy.
Fell in love with this mod the second I laid my eyes on it years and years ago. I've barely looked at BaseJA since. One of the few games I always keep coming back to.
This mod is fantastic, but the community/playerbase is seriously one of the worst I've seen. Friendly fire seriously needs to be disabled in this since a lot of the players I've encountered teamkilled half of their teams for no clear reason.
Although I hate this mod, something about it keeps me coming back, really fun to play with friends. Fast paced gameplay will keep you coming back for more!
This mod is great, but the community and/or playerbase is seriously one of the worst I've ever seen, HANDS DOWN. Friendly fire really needs to be disabled in this since a lot of the players I've played with teamkilled half of their teammates for no particular reason, AT ALL. I haven't played for a while and am not sure if they fixed it, but if they haven't, GOD DAMMIT THEY BETTER...
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.
Is a fun game as it creates a very authentic experience, that reminds us of the movies. However, its classes system has some flaws because it works like a rock paper scissors game sometimes. Some classes rely on gimmicky and unfair mechanics that put them above the others.
It offers three different modes: authentic, open, and duel. However its Community has a very weird behavior of playing the same map and mode for hours, and that can spook newcomers away in weeks.
One of the best mod for Jedi Knight Academy.
Unfortunately, it does not have bots nor single-player gameplay.
The lightsaber gameplay has been enhanced (or is it me?), tons of well made units, great maps, original Star Wars music.
Honestly the best multiplayer mod for this game, of great quality, but it would have been great to have some bots added to it.
It is been a while... I have stumbled upon Movie Battles after getting bored of Jedi Academy & Lugormod. It is hard, it is annoying but it is also very amusing when you finally start doing things the right way.
Earlier, sabering was a nightmare I could not get a hang of it. In latest release it was greatly improved, many bugs were removed, force powers balanced even further. I am certain MB is going in the right direction. That is a kind of modification worth my support!
Multiplayer community still alive and a great time to be had
