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!

Its a wonderful mod. however a select few players makes this small community extremely toxic for new player. Its extremely hard for a new player to find a place here. The comminity is dying, there are tons of servers but only a few are ever populated. Those that are, either have no staff to police bad players or are corrupt and encourage bad behavior. New player being chased away by veteran players are a huge thing(I kinda think part of its due to the changes the developers are making to help attract new players, the old players hate these changes and hate on new players for them telling them to stop complaining and to git gud. we try but you guys screw us constantly and don't make it fun at all). New player go to servers that advertise new player friendly, or new player havens and just get hooped by veteran players who want to see a high k/d ratio. duel servers are terrible as well, vets come in under false names and start attacking everything in sight. even though duel servers are ment to be 1v1 fights, they will run up and cut your back down over and over till you got no lives left. Its just terrible that the developers allow this sort of things to happen constantly. Tried to voice concerns to the developers discord but was called a Troll and other names by their discord community. and thats about the point where I figure the game was dying and nobody cared. so the uninstall button got pressed and I decided to leave a review warning others from wasting their time with this load of fecal matter.

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.

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...




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.

Mod which completely recreates Dark Forces 4: Jedi Knight 3: Jedi Outcast 2: Jedi Academy (uhh) multiplayer, allowing you and your friends to fight in the most iconic battles as different characters from Star Wars, both canon and legends. Imagine something like Counter-Strike and Team Fortress 2, but in the Star Wars universe. There are many diverse and balanced classes to choose from along with many customisation options, both gameplay and visual. Advantages and disadvantages of each class must be taken into account to succeed. Maps have objectives for each team to complete, with teamwork required for the best result. This mod has a steep learning curve with many experienced players, so expect to die a lot at first. Read some guides, try different classes until find what suits you the best and don't be afraid to ask for advice. Once you get at least slightly better at this game, it becomes extremely fun and addictive.

This is the pinical of star wars gaming. Imagine TF2 but star wars and good lightsaber combat and balanced classes. That is this mod in a nutshell. Now there have been some new updates that kinda changed the balance and style of it, mainly the lightsaber combat, but I still enjoy it to this day because while jedi and sith are big, there are also gunners which are fun. The worst part about it is the community which can be super toxic, but that's not this mods fault, its the fact that its in our nature to be competitive and mean nature. just needs a little more adjustment in the lighsaber to make it like it was and this would be perfect. I still recommend giving it a go.

The only flaws in this game are the Gunner Animations (Except Clones), the Spammable Saberist class and some people being there just to ruin your fun. (Cough, Chough, Aaron, Cough, Cough) Other than that - a solid 9.5/10
