Very well done

  • Summary: This is a very well done game, with good graphics, effects, animation, a good story, excellent character development. I highly recommend it. But, at this date, it has not aged well and with so many excellent newer games available, it's hard to justify the time to play Jade Empire.

  • Excerpt: The original was probably one of the best role playing games that I have come across on the x-box and one that I would definitely recommend so it was natural that I would seek out the special edition for a try out as true to its name only one manufacture run was completed.
  • Pros: New character
  • Cons: Not enough new stuff if you have the original

  • Excerpt: So lately I've gone to game stores to buy used Xbox games because 360 games are really expensive. I'm about to borrow Mass Effect from my friend so I've decided to finish KoTOR (which was a fantastic and I'll probably write a review on it one I have enought time) and buy Jade Empire.
  • Pros: great story, lots of martial arts styles, visuals are nice, lots of historic writing
  • Cons: shallow combat, limited character customizations

  • Excerpt: Looking for a role playing game that accurately depicts the history of the Far East? One that allows you to have a hand in shaping that land's development, meeting up with actual historical figures? Well, then you're in the wrong place because Jade Empire isn't that kind of game at all.
  • Pros: Excellent storyline, fun to play .
  • Cons: It's a bit linear .

  • Excerpt: (that's Knights of the old republic for those who don't know)...comes a martial arts epic! You begin your story as a pupil in a secluded village, being taught by a grand master. The spirits of the dead begin to roam the earth; and no one knows why!
  • Pros: Fun adventure through oriental fantasy wonderland
  • Cons: Pretty basic gameplay

  • Summary: We'll after reading several reviews proclaiming just how awesome Jade Empire, I decided to give it a go. Well 4 months and around 20+ hours of play later I was done. "Wow!" you think "20 hours+ of gameplay".

  • Summary: i remember this game before it came out, it sounded too good and just like fable, it was. there lots of stuff like becoming famous and having your own school, where you could use as a criminal hq. but there was none of that and a lot of talking.
