First and third person perspectives

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Knight Academy switches between first and third-person perspectives with both shooter-style gameplay and of course, Lightsabre combat. The really smart thing about Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Knight Academy is that the ending is really up to you. Depending on what you do and who you slay along the way, the ending will change.

Optimized for MacBook Pros

There had been some usability issues with Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Knight Academy even on MacBook Pros due to problems with the graphics card but Aspyr now seem to have fixed the problem, and the game runs very smoothly including on Retina Macs. If you still experience problems, however, set the game to the lowest graphics setting and you should be OK. Unfortunately, there's no gamepad support yet though.

Superb graphics and sound

The graphics and sound in Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Knight Academy are generally excellent. The game is fully licensed from Lucas Arts so all of the characters you'd expect from a Star Wars epic are present and named correctly. The dynamic plot also makes Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Knight Academy something a bit different than you're average RPG.
