Jade Empire: Special Edition

 

After releasing RPG masterpieces such as Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox/PC) and Neverwinter Nights, Bioware turned to a new project, leaving both franchises in the hands of Obsidian Entertainment. Their next step was to launch a new action-flavored...

An amazing variety of characters to meet along the way, rich and involving story, artwork, first-rate music and voiceovers

Not many innovations since the Xbox version (gameplay wise), lacks more depth, character advancement and combat have been oversimplified

BioWare's two year-old Xbox RPG finally makes it to the PC, but time is beginning to wear on an otherwise excellent title.

Jade Empire: Special Edition Review - PCs

 

The long-awaited PC version of Jade Empire retains the great story and setting of the Xbox original, but the streamlined combat and core design haven't aged quite as gracefully.

Complex story and characters rank among BioWare's best, Pretty graphics and superb voice acting bring the game world to life, Alignment system is well designed and adds replay value., The Bad: Simplistic combat is unexceptional and unfulfilling,...

The Bad: Simplistic combat is unexceptional and unfulfilling, Limited character-customization options make levelling up unexciting, Only a scant few additions over the Xbox version.

Consumer review by:

Jade Empire: Special Edition

 

Another great game/RPG to come out of Bioware. Good story and great characters!

Engaging story ; Simple system/easy to get the hang of ; Beautiful graphics ; Manual combat instead of waiting for it to play out

Little to no control over other characters ; No side quests for party characters/members
