Multiplayer games - split screen XBOX

With split-screen, players don't connect to a network - local or online - because multiplayer play takes place on a single console or computer. Two or more players - usually a maximum of four - play at the same time, with each player having their own individual piece of screen on a TV or monitor. Split-screen is most popular on consoles, in genres such as shooters and racing games.

Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy

Action 18 November 2003

This installment of the Jedi Knight video game series has been developed by Raven Software. The action of the game takes place 6 years after the events shown in the previous Jedi Knight game. The player gets the opportunity to become a student at the Jedi Academy led by Luke Skywalker and Kyle Katarn on Yavin IV. What is interesting, upon starting the game the player has to create his or her own character by choosing the race, sex, clothing and physical appearance. It is also up to the player to construct his or her own lightsaber, which immediately becomes the character’s primary weapon. This however, does not eliminate the opportunity to utilize in combat elements of more conventional arsenal, like blaster pistols and rifles. Despite the fact that the missions’ objectives do not deviate so much from the previous Jedi Knight installments, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy distinguishes itself from its predecessors through a non-linear campaign (player can complete missions at any order). On our adventure, we get to visit places like Tatooine or Hoth, and, simultaneously, acquire and develop numerous skills representing the light or the dark side of the Force. The path the player chooses not only does affect the last few quests, but it also has a significant impact on the ending of the game.
