Product Description

Product Description

Jade Empire is a fast-paced martial-arts role-playing game (RPG), from Knights of the Old Republic RPG-developer BioWare. It's set in a new, fantastical world based on mythical China, where sinister events have upset the peaceful harmony of an isolated martial-arts school. Featuring furious action previously found only in Hong Kong cinema, the game lets players master more than 30 fighting styles and a wide range of mystical powers as they embark on a perilous journey, stretching from the Land of Howling Spirits to the lush gardens of the Imperial City.

Jade Empire casts the player as a martial arts master and lets them choose between good and evil. That choice will follow them throughout the land, affecting their interactions with other characters and followers. Developed with a revolutionary second-generation Xbox engine, the game will offer fans a stunning visual and gameplay experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Fantastic! 11 Aug 2005
Format:Video Game
This is simply a fantastic game that balances fantastic gameplay with awesome graphics, well rounded characters and a great musical score. The combat system, which would look complex to the uninitiated, I'm sure, builds up gradually and smoothly so that when you get to the real tough baddies you are ready for some top stomping. The cut scenes also look great and really help the plot to evolve, which incidentally has a fantastice twist to it.
I've played it through twice now without getting bored and I'm sure there are still a couple of side plots that I haven't discovered. Believe the hype, this game is that good, okay it doesn't have the freedom of Morrowind/Fable but this is the tiniest of gripe and shouldn't put you off in any way.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's no KoTOR, but... 19 Dec 2005
By M. Richardson VINE VOICE
Format:Video Game
Jade Empire is a great adventure game with RPG elements. In the game, you take control of a martial arts student as they complete their training and embark on the typical epic quest to save the world associated with this genre; along the way you will partake in much exploration, dialogue, combat and some puzzle solving.
Jade Empire, by Bioware standards, is a very streamlined game; you do not have to control much in terms of leveling up and equipment (In Jade Empire you only have to bother about weaponry and bonus gems for your amulet!). Unfortunately, this will disappoint many Bioware fans expecting another KoTOR game, and with the reams of dialogue, it won't tap into the major market of gamers who just want mindless action. There are also various other problems which prevent Jade Empire from reaching the lofty heights of KoTOR: It is too short, weighing in at about 20 hours; there is not quite enough time to become attached to the characters or the world, and so a lot of the weight of teh story is lost in translation. You are also unlikely to feel as gripped as you may have been by KoTOR, though Bioware would always face the challenge without such a recognisable universe to draw on: everyone knows what a Jedi is, but following the idea of the Water Dragon and Chinese morality is somewhat harder for a western audience. Also, the new real time fighting system has its flaws; it looks cool, and when you're used to it, it works well. However, it is possible to get through teh game using a handful of styles and very basic tactics, so you could get bored by the end of the game.
However, there are a lot of great points to the game making it worthy of a 5 star score IMO. The combat, for all it lacks in depth, does offer a lot of exciting styles and harmonic combos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bioware game yet 8 April 2007
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are no spoilers in this review.

I've been playing Bioware RPGs since Baldur's Gate and I must say this is the best one yet! Set in a mythical far East world with magic and combat "styles" instead of weapons. This is the first Bioware game I've seen with a realtime combat system and it is implemented perfectly, adding an extra dimension of strategy and challenge to the genre.

The support characters are interesting, but didn't bring their own missions... I am still debating with myself if this is a good or a bad thing. Typically Bioware games give each support character a side mission which distracts from the main game. Not adding side missions to each of them kept things focused, but reduced playing time and depth of the supports.

If I were to add any criticism about the main game, it would be that Bioware still have not got the good/evil, light/dark thing right yet. In fact they have it so wrong they may as well stop trying! Luckily it is not a main focus of this game and they use an "open palm/closed fist" system which allows the user to choose their specialist fighting style to align with their philosophy. This could have been executed better. I feel that if something like this is going to be in the game, it has to be the focus of the game, and the story needs to be as rich for either set of decisions... with much better benefits to choosing the "evil" path. Bioware should learn from the authors of Fable on this one, or leave it out entirely.

Unfortunately, Bioware have felt the need to throw in some really distracting mini-games. I hated these things in KOTOR and was really annoyed to see them show up again in Jade Empire. There is an R-Type style shooting game which is not part of the storyline at all, and actually seriously distracts from the main game... it doesn't even make any sense because your flying ship is flying the same colours as the enemy anyway so there is no need to fight them in the air. Sillyness!

5.0 out of 5 stars best rpg on XBOX 21 Nov 2005
Format:Video Game
Many people would consider Knights of the Old Republic to be the best rpg of the Xbox, or perheps Morrowind.
But me? I think it to be Jade Empire. Personally the decision really wasn't that hard to make... the reasons? easy
First off, a bit of personal detail. I grew up in Korea, I am Korean so I think it lovely to see bioware going Asian with these historically fabled creatures.
Second, bioware for once did not have a preset story, in Baldurs Gate and KOTOR bioware used starwars and the forgotten realms as a setting, over here bioware had the freedom to create everything they wanted.
Basically, in this game you choose a character, this character will normally be a fast based character (finnesse fighter), a strong character (barbarian) or a magical character who uses chi.
You are a student under the guidance of Master Li, everybody in the school knows there is something special about you, by far the best student in the school Master Li is training you for something big. He has something extremely important to tell you.
Just when you are about to find out what it is he has to say some pirates attack the village. You and master Li have to fight the pirates.
Now master Li will tell you that you are a spirit monk, the last one to be living, Li was infact Sun Li the greatest strategist and saved you from death preparing you for a great voyage...
Thirdly, this game, made by one of the greatest game producers of all time, have once again got together an extremely deep, fun story which you can truly flow into.
Fourthly, the graphics, can you say anything other than, unbelievable?
