Jade Empire

Game Over Online
21 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Jade Empire is good, but it's not great. I hate to be the one to tell you that, but it's true. It's a lot of fun, and if you're an Xbox owner or RPG fan, it should be in your collection. There's enough imagination, wonder, replay value, and humor packed into Jade Empire for three games.

Jade Empire

Into Liquid Sky
18 April 2006
  • Excerpt: Hot on the heels of the much celebrated Knights of the Old Republic , Bioware has taken their successful RPG formula and used it as the core for a story-heavy RPG of a different flavor. The world of Jade Empire is a fictional land patterned after the mythology of the ancient orient.
  • Pros: Action-based combat, Great audio and graphics, Good and bad paths allow for replay, Deep story
  • Cons: Long load times, Combat could be deeper

  • Excerpt: So here's the picture. Let's imagine that you own an XBox and are a bit of an RPG fan - both fair assumptions if you should happen to be reading this. You loved the Knights of the Old Republic games, but you tend to prefer something a bit medieval for your playing pleasure; well, fear not!

Jade Empire

Gaming Evolution
3 February 2006
  • Conclusion: Jade Empire has all the elements of becoming the best RPG on the Xbox, but does not succeed. The game is certainly not anywhere close to the caliber of KOTOR. Never the less, Jade Empire is still a great game and every Xbox owner should take a look at it.

  • Summary: Jade Empire is a great basis for any future titles BioWare have planned for the franchise. It could do with some beefing up of the RPG elements and there are some technical issues that could be fixed but overall Jade Empire offers an Action-RPG experience that you'll be hard up finding elsewhere.

Jade Empire

Xbox Evolved
26 January 2006
  • Summary: It would be easy to say that Jade Empire is just “KOTOR” in ancient China with stripped down mechanics and a more action-oriented combat system. The sad fact is, if I had to describe the game to someone in one sentence that is what I would have to say.
  • Pros: Engulfing story, well presented
  • Cons: It is a bit to easy, and far to short
