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 Waker, were much stronger in the art department.
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: 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. The story is hit and miss, having so much dialogue in the game is a double edged sword.
Summary: This is probably the most blatantly offensive, stereotypical, cookie-cutter, console garbage action RPG I have ever played. Poor game length, awful controls, awkward mini-games, muddy graphics and linear level design round out what is probably the worst game made by Bioware. Don't bother with this even if it's on sale.
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.
Summary: Probably the most underrated of Bioware games. Excellent story, great universe inspired by Chinese mythology, interesting characters (though some of them are clearly KOTOR rip-offs, like Sky), good script and voice acting, believable antagonists with motivations beyond "destroy the world" cliché, intriguing and sadly underdeveloped idea with Open Palm and Closed Fist philosophies, engaging and sometimes very original quests and some real choices to make along the way.
Summary: Ordered from UK seller only $7 plus shipping. Arrived pretty prompt. But unable to use because virus protection plan would not allow it to download to computer. Stated disc had virus. Filed claim for issue seller contacted requesting returning product. Seller can keep my $7+. Throwing disc away. No need to try again. Especially back and forth with UK!
