It was one of the first games that I played, and I truly can say that is awesome game. You can't see how many hours (or days) I already spend on it because I have this game before steam account, but I went through this game about 20 times, sometimes being good and sometimes being evil. I remember by heart all story and every one secret.
There's a lot of martial arts and characters that you can choose. Story is addictive. And fights are ultra-dynamic. Also despite the age of game, Jade Empire has a beautiful visuals.
Always when I don't know what I want to play I turn on this game - Jade Empire.

I would definitively recommend this game, it starts slowly but as I progressed in the story I appreciated it more and more, despice some flaws in the gameplay and the annoying bioware "black & white" morality system.

win 7 + xbox controller, no problems , nothing to complain about.

The controlls are a bit rusty and at times ungainly, it doesn't respond as well as it should, making it at time very difficult to resolve a fight. The advanced combat style system, while a good idea could do with some streamlining, there are almost too many styles (something between 15 and 20) but you end up using only a couple of them exclusively.
The combat in itself can range from very difficult (even with a controller) to smash a button simple. Bioware should have remembered they are first and foremost a RPG company, action is not their fortes.
Still when you get the hang of it, the fights are usually fun and very kung-fu likes , I only wished it had been a bit simpler and more responsive.
The RPG part is working nicely, although it sometimes feel like we could do with a little less dialogue, but like in many bioware games we feel obliged to go though everything a character has to say just in case something interessting is hiding in the choices.

Graphics and sounds
For a game this age I'm agreably surprised with the nice graphics. The background landscapes are beautifully rendered with a lot of colour , the music and sounds goes nicely with it giving it a distinctively fantasy oriental feeling. Yes it's dated but at anno 2015 I didn't have any problem with it, and as the game went on, I was actually more and more impressed about the nice backgrounds and objects put in the game. The characters look quite nice , maybe a bit boring but nothing too serious. The attention to the details is maybe what impressed me most, everything feel very oriental, from the design of GUI to the music or the decorations, very nice.

At first it doesn't really engage, but after an hour of two the game become more and more exciting, the characters who start at bit bland become more fleshed out and interesting and the quests and surroundings get better and better. In fact the game get really interessting 1\3 into the story when you reach the capital. In short it might seem a bit boring at first but things get better with time, give it a chance.
Toward the end it get really amazing and I have to say it's one of the most engaging RPG I have played for a long time. The story is much better than NWN2 (expensions included) and the ending is much better than masseffect and even KOTOR 1. The Bioware "morality" system however annoyed me with it's very basic evil and good choices. It's very black and white and counterintuitive , bioware doesn't manage to give us clear motivations to behave like a "♥♥♥♥♥♥♥" , most people will naturally choice the "good-guy" choices especially when being a bad guy doesn't give you any clear advantages. This is not a new problem for bioware RPG however and it's something most of us have learned to live with in those games. Still a bit annoying.
The story start a bit tame, but it very soon become a lot more exciting. In fact towad the end I was really engrossed in it and the game amazed me more and more as I progressed. The story is one of the best I've experienced in a RPG for quite some times and it's very refreshing.

The game has its flaws, but mostly it's great especially if you like a great and engrossing story. The beginning is a bit tame, and take some time to familiarise yourself with the controlls which can feel cluncky at time. But as a whole the great story and interessant characters make it worth your time, I definitively recommend this game.

A sweet action-RPG with some cool martial arts action - combat can be a little repetitive if you exploit certain stun lock combos, but it still stands up as an overall experience pretty well. Story is interesting, will feel right to fans of martial arts films. A fine example of the RPG from BioWare, back before they were owned by EA.

Jade Empire SE: Lost Potential: The Game

-is good
-music excels
-setting is gorgeous
-rpg elements nice
-freedom of progression in main quests
-combo styles+non-scrub mc makes for a good battle sys
-bioware star bi-lead
-sidequests satisfying eg., arena!!, bounties aka aishi, garden smackdown, lorde's furnace, mr and mrs bun, etc
-finale wraps up nicely
-jen zi's ribbon physx

-feels incomplete
--two stops
--companions= conduits of aforementioned wasted potential
-morality sys is so-so, ie., 'im nice hello ur a slave? wow thats not ok' vs 'be a ♥♥♥♥ to grandma'
-interaction sys is reeeeally rough (why can't sky just keep talking)
-where is jen zi's dragon tattoo bioware!!?

-my dumbass for not remembering this friggin game is CAPPED AT 30FPS+THERE'S A FIX NNNGGGHHH
use the fix, it'll feel like you're not playing on an 80s dell dsktp:
'jadeempire.ini' in JE folder
ctrl+f clampfps
change value; '1' to '0'
start shiny new game
enjoy my wasted 30hrs-tainted opportunity

-steam vers is a hot mess, but heres the fix i used:

It's not a perfect game: I didn't like the combat system and the PC controls suck, half the game is all about wine, and it, sobs, didn't let me romance Dawn Star with my girl. But it explores spirituality and rebirth in the way that very few games do. The baddies aren't all black, the white is something unattainable, and the plot takes you to places you never expected to go to. It's an exceptional game and I, for one, would totally buy a sequel or two.

Gutes Spiel nur leider hatte ich bei Windows 7 ein Problem mit dem Config Programm.
Hier die Lösung für das Problem:

Um das Spiel auf Windows 7 64 bit zum laufen zu bringen, einach den :\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Jade Empire (Installationsordner) öffnen und JadeEmpireLauncher in JadeEmpireLauncher_Backup unbennen.
Danach noch JadeEmpire in JadeEmpireLauncher unbennen und das Spiel ganz normal über Steam starten.
Es erscheint kein Config Fenster mehr und das Spiel läuft ohne Probleme ;)

Viel Spaß.

Ein richtig gutes "3rd person" RPG!
Möglichkeit zur Entwicklung als "guter" oder "böser" Charakter, mit teilweise anderem Handlungsverlauf!
Vereinfachte Charakterentwicklung, Spezialangriffen und -techniken.
Jede Menge interessante Side-Quests mit interessanten Belohnungen.
Sau-coole Handlung, mit interessanter Wendung.
Ein bei weitem unterschätzter Titel!
Ich habe es über die Jahre bereits 3-mal durchgespielt! Hmmm, es reizt mich mal wieder...

wenn man bedenkt, dass bioware so ein spiel wie jade empire zustande bringt, kann man eig nur davon ausgehen, dass dragon age und mass effect episch sein müssen.

final verdict:


der 0.5 abzug ist auf die grafik zurückzuführen, würden die ein remake mit besserer grafik machen hätte das spiel ein 12/10 bekommen.

es lohnt sich wirklich

wer das problem, "Could not find steam" hat sollte steam beenden und als admin ausführen, nach diesem schritt klickt man auf jade empire-->eigenschaften-->lokale dateien--->spieldatein auf fehler überprüfen. dieser vorgang kann einige minuten in anspruch nehmen.
so hats bei mir funktioniert.

Jade Empire ist eines der ersten bioware spielen und das merkt man auch da das beziehungssystem noch sehr flach war.
Die Handlung ist mittellang aber wirklich interesannt.
Das spiel ist auch sehr abwechslungreicht, willst du ein tyrann sein und die welt unterdrücken oder für die freiheit kämpfen.
die missionen kann man verschieden lösen und selbst entscheiden wie die mission ausgeht.
grafik ist zwar alt aber schön anzusehen.
einziger minuspunkt obwohl ich ein aktuellen computer hab der alle neuen spiele abspielen kann ohne probleme (Z.B. Mass effect 3,Battlefield 3 und Call of Duty Ghost) läuft dieses spiel nicht flüssig.
die fps rate ist niedrig,viele grafikfehler und stottert der öfteren oder beendet das spiel manchmal ohne grund(wollte skillpunkte verteilen und dann sagt mein computer JadeEmpire.exe funktioniert nicht mehr und muss beendet werden).
Meine Empfehlung:
+Viele Missionen
+einfache steuerung
-Viele Bugs
-Schlechte Framerate trotz aktuellen computer
-Viele Grafikfehler
-Asynchrone videos und stimmen (im spiel spricht jemand was aber der mund bewegt sich nicht mehr)

Spiel macht spaß aber die grafikfehler und die bugs nerven.

The game itself is brilliant, unfortunately, Valve is distributing it in a broken, unplayable state for most windows Vista/7/8 users. This requires users to hack the install directory by renaming files, or to seek to resolve the problem by more convoluted and risky means.

It is of course BioWare's responsibility to fix this, but Valve is still selling it, and it's unacceptable that people feel the need to download anonymous executables off the internet in order to play a game they purchased.

If you feel like dealing with the head ache of trying to get this broken product to work, it's actually a very good game. It starts a little slow but you encounter lots of interesting characters, make lots of decisions that impact how things turn out, develop relationships with party members, get multiple endings, and can unlock a lot of cool powers. It's a very good game, it's like a pre-cursor to Mass Effect but JadeEmpireConfig.exe is broken and results in a Can't Find Steam error.

Oh the solution to the Can't Find Steam error? Simple

Make a backup of JadeEmpireLauncher.exe, create a copy of JadeEmpire.exe, and rename that copy to JadeEmpireLauncher.exe. Then run it in XP Compatibility Mode with Run as Administrator checked. For most people, this solves the problem. I'm sorry you had to look for a work around like this to make a game you spent money on playable.

Steam Version == BROKEN

I cannot recommend the Steam version in its current state, simply because it's broken (i.e. "non-working") beyond belief. This seems to not only be because of a "we don't care" attitude on Bioware's part, but also on Valve/Steam parts for letting things into the Steam shop that obviously haven't been QA'd AT ALL. This basically forces users to "jumping through hoops" like resorting to running Steam as Administrator, "registry hacking", manipulating broken config game files, renaming game executables and so on, without any guarantee that the game will run in the end anyway. Most of the problems are well-known (i.e. mentioned numerous times on forums here at Steam and Bioware), but there seem to be neither official solutions nor statements nor any signs of pressure from Steam towards Bioware to fix it.

* "Can't Find Steam error" : The most blatant proof that Steam didn't QA the Steam Version. The initial setup will throw this error message at your face unless you start the STEAM CLIENT itself in Administrator Mode (!). As the game requires admin privileges, and Interprocess Communcation between game and steam (with Steam_api.dll for Overlay / DRM) requires both executables to have admin privileges. Basic programming mistake on Biowares part? Non-existing QA on Steam's part?
* Verify integrity of the game cache throws you into a loop: Got "2 files failed and will be reaquired" every time you try from the steam client? In this case: Good luck. (Steam's fault)
* Crashing Game Configuration Dialog: The game configuration laucher crashes while trying to discover your hardware? You're out of luck unless you start renaming files / editing the registry / create a valid xml config file. (Bioware's fault)
* Dead-locking game right at the beginning: You only get the initial loading screen where you only see a background image? Afaik, there is no known solution to this problem at this time. (Bioware's fault)

There are speculations that the last 2 points might be caused by the "Optimus" technology from NVidia (modern Laptops with dedicated graphics cards have 2 cards: One integrated HDxxxx Intel version inside your CPU and one dedicated NVidia / ATI card). If that were true, it would mean that most laptops with dedicated graphic hardware (from NVidia) won't run this game at all. This is only *speculation* though.

TL;DR version: DON'T BUY! Unless Valve / Steam starts putting serious pressure towards Bioware to fix the plethora of issues nothing will be done, and the version offered in the shop will remain broken.

I enjoyed this game when I played it on the original Xbox and grabbed this off a Steam Sale. However, this port seems to be broken. I can't launch the game and going to the forums just shows that I am in the company of hundreds of others who also can't launch the game.

The game is good, but the port is broken. Stay away or press your luck, you may be buying a broken game!

Waste of money. I've played this game in the past and it's a great game. The game is not the problem, getting it to run is. The host of known problems with the Steam version continues to grow. First you will be greeted by the "Failed to find Steam" error. This can be corrected by running both the Steam app and the Jade Empire game as administrator. Once you get past that you will be greeted by the configuration screen which will crash while trying to detect your hardware. I hear the only fix for this is changing the registry but I could be wrong.

If you manage to get past these errors (and a few brave and knowlegable souls have) You will likely run into the game crashing on you upon launch. In short this is not a game so much as a program designed to crash your computer. I hear there are patches you can download from various sites but you risk downloading viruses too. Make a mistake trying to change the registry yourself and you just might end up reformatting your hard drive. It's far less painful to just stay away from this POS that will fight you at every turn as you try to get it to launch. Sometimes it will even mock you by making you think it's about to run only to crash and laugh in your face. Stay away!

Played this a few years ago and I loved it. Had troubles starting the game on the steam version, but I found the solution after just a quick search. A rather nice gem from Bioware; one that is not as popular as their other games, but is about as good. Expect the quality story and role playing that Bioware is known for. Don't let an easily solvable compatibility issue keep you away from this experience.

I bought this game with the Steam discount offer (75% of its price) and I must say the money is well spent. After playing it I'd say even the full-price would be well spent money.
Story-wise, the game got me hooked from the start to the end. It might looks a bit cliché at the beginning, but there are many twists in the plot and there are a couple of features that really make the game a very good product. The graphics might not the best around but I didn't realy care much about it. Bioware makes a good use of romances (both heterosexual and homosexual) even if they're not the focus of the game. The combat system is fast paced and much more technical than other Bioware titles (mostly because this was intended as a X-Box game, then ported to the PC version), but I enjoyed it and never found it frustrating.
That said I would really recommend this game to people who enjoy ancient Mongolia/China settings, mixed with magic, mythology, kung-fu monks and action roleplaying games.

First I want to say that the game itself is good. Once I scoured the internet looking for the way to fix it it works well and is fun.
However, and this is a big however, It does not work as is downloaded from steam. You have to go download some random guy's .exe modified to work with win 7/8.

If you don't care about doing that then by all means this is a great game with a unique combat system and intriguing story.
