Holy crap, old game is old! I can't believe they want $10 for a decade old Quake 3 engine game. If they were going to release a game from that series on the app store why make it the last one Jedi Knight III: Jedi Academy?

Yeah, or Star Wars Republic Commando. That was an awesome Xbox game. Would have loved to have seen this ported over to the Mac instead of this one.

Republic Commandos was amazing, really hope they port it over.

Just because a game is old doesn't mean everyone has played it. Initial price of $10 seems reasonable for what was a AAA title at one time. Jedi Academy is only a year-and-a-half "younger" than Outcast. I'm sure Aspyr is working on getting it on the MAS as well.

Great!

I remember the multiplayer mode to be a lot of fun. How crowded is it this days? Might pick it up.

Aspyr already has a Mac port of Jedi Academy, it's just not on the App Store yet, so I'm sure it will be eventually. I doubt we'll see ports of Battlefront or Republic Commando though, since Aspyr has never ported those before. It would make me very happy if they did though.

Now i can complete game without cheats. I bought this game and very happy
