Jade Empire Xbox Review

Game Info Wire
26 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Playing this game you'll have a lot of fighting to do, but you'll spend even more time exploring the landscape, talking to NPCs, and indoctrinating yourself in the game's mystical underpinnings. So does a martial arts RPG play? Read on

  • Conclusion: The first thing to notice after getting into the game is the amount of detail in the environment - it's obvious that each area has had a lot of care to put into it. Close up the graphical quality of items isn't great, but the game has a beauty in the detail and styling of the environment.
  • Pros: Superb story., Excellent acting., Pretty scenery.
  • Cons: Poor combat., Load times are too long and too frequent.

  • Conclusion: The gameplay too is a lot of fun, but hard core RPG fans looking for something a little more complex may want to stick to their PC offerings. Jade Empire is a high quality production that lovers of ancient Eastern cultures will really dig, as it combines a happy mix of combat, spell casting and...

Test : Jade Empire

GameHope
16 May 2005
  • Summary: Depuis l'avénement de la Xbox en 2002, la console a toujours représenté le parent pauvre du RPG. Mais au fil des années, après KOTOR (1 et 2) et Fable , le style a su s'émanciper sur la console de Billou, avec un sérieuse tendance pour les Action-RPGs où le héros peut modifier son alignement.
  • Pros: Le monde asiatique, méconnu dans les RPGs, Les styles de combat, Les dialogues très nombreux, Les alignements, Les nombreuses vidéos
  • Cons: Les combats en temps réel, La zik, pas géniale, Les décors se renouvellent peu, La durée de vie, Une expérience somme toute très classique

Outerspace
5 May 2005
  • Conclusion: Jade Empire é um RPG para quem não gosta de RPG. Seu estilo ainda lembra bastante o de outros jogos da Bioware como Knights of the Old Republic, mas foi tudo simplificado para o jogador casual, e o foco tende muito para o lado da ação, com os elementos tradicionais de RPG tendo pouca relevância.
  • Pros: Jogabilidade simples e intuitiva: Parece um jogo de luta;, Não tem certas complexidades dos RPGs, atraindo o público casual;, Gráficos bonitos, uma boa evolução que foi visto em KotOR;, Bom trabalho de sonoplastia e dublagem;
  • Cons: RPG... mas sem itens, armaduras, poções, etc;, É simples e fácil demais para quem quer um RPG de verdade;, Simplificado, mas ainda com uma quantidade excessiva de diálogos. Uma péssima mistura;, A história não está no nível de qualidade dos demais jogos da Bioware;

  • Summary: Så börjar Biowares nya episka saga. Utvecklarna av det kritikerrosade Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KotOR) har den här gången kombinerat grunden i sin föregångare med orientalisk mytologi.
  • Pros: Massor av olika stridsstilar, Episk och intressant handling, Mysig och snygg design, Inte storslagen, men passande musik, Lättillgängligt, Kul minispel a la 1942
  • Cons: Långa laddningstider här och där, Snåla möjligheter att skapa sin karaktär, Lite få attacker i varje stil, Alldeles för begränsat utrustningssystem, För lätt att slåss (välj master), Följeslagarna är inte tillräckligt involverade
