Why is jk2 better than jk3?
Why is there always TWICE as many people in jk2 forums than there are in jk3? jk3 is the newer game, so it makes no sense to have more people here. i dont understand

Because JA added a bunch of flashy lightsaber moves and other acrobatic moves but also nerfed the other things like the movements and the guns. It was a lot more slower, rolling didn't do anything, no more strafe-jumping. Guns were useless now, the Tenloss was nerfed among other things, and saber fighting was dull.

Plus the storyline wasn't as good. Jaden isn't as interesting a character as Kyle. Kyle actually had a backstory and depth to him. What was Jaden's story? He built a saber and wasn't even a Jedi. OMG.

those were just some of the things that i didn't like about it. Other people might add more reasons, but those are all I could think of right now.

the best fighting with lightsaber is in my oppinion in JK2 1.02 the orginal that is. The ctf is wonderful if you learn it.

What you mean? JO sj = JA sj, there is no difference. And siege movement = single player movement.

JA is a good RPGFPS.

JO has a MUCH better storyline, and other elements work smoothly in JK2 (like rolling) whereas they do not in JA. The hit detection is questionable at best in JA. A lot of people who left JO to play JA came back and some others (like me :D) kept JO then got JA and now play both.

I agree that Jo is better than Ja. We should all know that the game was rushed which is why the game was so poor(story). I gotta admit they did make some great new addons ok only 1 in my veiw(Multiple sabers) Weapons are like useless in ja compared to Jo where in the story you had to use weapons for a change which was neat. The battle system should be faster not slower which what they did to Ja(aka Lightsaber Battles) Like in the movies ( new movies you didnt c Slow saber action did you?) I hope with A new Jk game whenever that will be and i hope there will be a new 1 that they would take good things from both games and get rid of the bad things which both games have had.
