Ten Years Later, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Lands At The Mac App Store


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy was created. (OK, so it wasn’t that far away, but Wisconsin, apparently home at the time of developer Raven Software, is an alien world.) But now this classic first-person shooter is available at the Mac App Store — so you can experience how much fun your PC friends were having a decade ago.

Yes, it’s an old game — but it’s also a noteworthy title from the series, as an FPS with an emphasis on close-quarter lightsaber skills. And it’s only $10. (For those wary of the Mac App Store, it’s also available on Steam, and at Aspyr’s GameAgent.com.)

System requirements aren’t too bad either, and should even make happy gamers of owners of 13’ MacBook Pros from a few years ago:

Operating System: OS X 10.7.5 (Lion), 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion)
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo
Number of cores: 2
Processor Speed: 2.2 GHz
Memory: 4 GB
Hard Disk Space: 2 GB
Video Card: NVIDIA Geforce 8800, ATI Radeon HD 2600, or Intel HD Graphics 3000 with 256 MB of Video Memory
