Summary: Worth it?: Overall, this game is worth about $10 (US). Graphics, Sound, Interface: The characters models, backgrounds, and CG work aren't so bad as to be distracting, but they are dated (as this game is from 2005). The style is an odd mix of western cartoon and stereotypical Chinese, and while this isn't bad or distracting, other games from this generation, like LOZ: The Wind Worth it?: Overall, this game is worth about $10 (US).
Summary: Bioware games are known, visuals aside, for their unforgettable characters and imersive story telling, unfortunately this is not always the case in Jade Empire. Presentation: 7 In teams of presentation, Jade empire still looks good to the “modern” eye, the art work is appealing despite being a bit cartoonish, the animations are fluid and the menus are easy to navigate (atleast on the GOG Bioware games are known, visuals aside, for their unforgettable characters and...
Summary: I was looking for an older game I may have missed to hold me over till some new titles came out,found this pretty cheap picked it up,and I would say it's ok,the graphics are abit dated and sorta choppy but still playable,for me its worth it for the story is compelling and makes me want to learn styles ect....
Summary: A classic Bioware rpg. It has an amazing story that takes place in a rich unique background. There is a variety of different characters to choose from, different fighting styles, multiple romance options, and you can decide to walk the path of good, evil, or somewhere inbetween. On steam it is only fifteen dollars.
Summary: Has a rock paper scissors fighting system, which works well despite some unbalanced spells. The story is fun and unfolds as you want it to. The last time I've had so much fun making choices was in Fallout 3. Time and again Jade Empire permits you to chose how you act...sometimes leading to disastrous consequences. I've walked the "evil" path and haven't regretted it.
Summary: thanks to the pc version jade empire has become even better. there are new enemies, effects, new weapons, new styles ( one of them is the best in the game too) theres a new difficulty mode where you can make a new gameplus, and theres a new character and in my opinion hes the best one yet. all this and everything else that made jade empire to good with its action packed gameplay, tons of thanks to the pc version jade empire has become even better.
Summary: This is the last good bioware game in my opinion. Starting somewhere with Mass Effect and Dragon Age, BIoware games seem to have lost their spirit and soul. Maybe it's the EA ownership, who knows. They are more impressive graphically, but in terms of character, story-telling risk, and just overall fun, they are lacking now. It is set in what is basically a Chinese MIddle Earth. The graphics have held up surprisingly well over the years from when it was released.
