Jade Empire Special Edition

Game Over Online
30 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Because my wife is away skiing in the North Country, you all benefit from what has to be, for me at any rate, the fastest game review ever. I played Jade Empire from start to finish in one marathon ten hour and fifteen minute gaming session, and without a multiplayer component and with essentially no replay factor in the single player adventure, that’s all there is to it. That doesn’t make Jade Empire a bad game, just a short one.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to RPGs, Bioware are without equal. They have created wonders such as the Baldur's Gate series, quite possible the best fantasy RPG ever created, as well as given tools to the community with the hugely successful Neverwinter Nights. After a brief adventure in space in the form of Knights of the Old Republic, they sought a new challenge the result of which was Jade Empire for the Xbox.

Jade Empire: Special Edition Review

23 March 2007
  • Excerpt: How does a two-year old PC port of an awesome Xbox RPG hold-up in today’s world? Well, if the game is from a company like Bioware, then the game may have some life. And if the game is like Jade Empire , a game in which PC gamers lost out for two years while their Xbox brethren reaped all the benefits, then the wait may have been worth it. Despite some shortcomings, the game is worthy of the other classic Bioware RPGs.

Expert Review

GameSpot
22 February 2007
  • Summary: PC gamers have been waiting patiently for almost two years for BioWare's Asian-themed role-playing game to make it to their platform of choice. And in many ways, it was worth the delay for anyone who hasn't already played the Xbox version. Jade Empire: Special Edition features a terrific story that, like most great tales, is as engaging now as it was when it was first told.
  • Pros: Complex story and characters rank among BioWare's best, Pretty graphics and superb voice acting bring the gameworld to life, Alignment system is well designed and adds replay value
  • Cons: Simplistic combat is unexceptional and unfulfilling, Limited character-customization options make leveling up unexciting, Only a scant few additions over the Xbox version

Jade Empire: Special Tin Box Edition review

Gameplanet
2 April 2008
  • Excerpt: Worth it if you haven't beaten it on a console already. Otherwise doesnt really compete with alternative PC RPGs.
  • Pros: Good, bug free port. Looks good and runs smoothly on modern machines. Same well designed and developed gameplay and story.
  • Cons: Doesn't feel natural on a PC. Dated graphics compared to other recent offerings. Not as special as "special edition" might suggest.
