A link between Knights of the Old Republic and Mass Effect. A rather simple and quick ARPG, Jade Emprie satisfies mainly on its story and setting. The fighting system is very run-of-the-mill button mashing, and the skill system is not very interesting. However, for fans of BioWare and RPGs, there is enough here to satisfy.

Still one of the best games available despite its age. For those who can't get it to run, I copy pasta'd the steam.dll into the jade empire folder and it ran just fine. Might not work for everyone though, idk, I just wanted to dunk Gao the Lesser again, that little ♥♥♥♥.

Jade Empire is without a doubt a very good game. It stands, however, very firmly, as a mid-point between Bioware's other landmark titles: Knights of the Old Republic and Mass Effect. It is very recognisable as a spiritual successor to the gameplay style of Knights of the Old Republic. On the other hand, you can see much that would go into Mass Effect being developed in Jade Empire. It says more than anything about Jade Empire that I could not write a paragraph in review without mentioning Bioware's other two excellent titles.

The characters and their development, the storyline, and quite frankly the world developed around them, simply doesn't live up to the heights generated by the other series mentioned herein. It perhaps helps with immersion that I was a Star Wars fan prior to playing Knights of the Old Republic; but Mass Effect's dramatic introduction of an entirely new universe was simply amazing and Jade Empire achieves nothing of the sort. It is a nice world, more densely populated than Knights of the Old Republic which makes it feel more immersive. But unfortunately it just does not stand out. It is not particularly memorable, and there is virtually no reason at all for the game to be open-world (when it does open up). If you are thorough, there is literally no reason to return to places you have visited in the past in Jade Empire, and that is rather unfortunate.

It is an aging game, so the graphics look a little dated at this point but you can still see that for their time they were quite pretty and it does not in any way impact the enjoyability of this title. The gameplay is also quite interesting, very fast-paced and there are a really wonderful array of fighting-styles that your character can learn. Slightly unfortunate, however, is the loss of the ability to play as other characters at will, which was a welcome feature included in Knights of the Old Republic.

All in all, this game is definitely worth looking into, especially for fans of Bioware's other excellent RPG titles. I have been rather critical in this review but it is only because Bioware has soared so much higher in other outings and with so much potential it is rather unfortunate that Jade Empire failed to achieve these expectations. Nonetheless, I still consider it one of the better RPG games I have played and would recommend giving it a shot. 8/10.

After countless adjustment problems, in the end still managed to get the game to run. I have this game on the Xbox really enjoyed his time. This version does not even comes close to the game experience that i have as a teenager, but it was some kind of a throwback experience.

If the story has you once, you're lost.
The Jade Empire is a really nice setup, Bioware has done everything right with this game.

I've been waiting some time until this game went on sale so I could finally play it - 9 years after it's release. If you don't mind old graphics, and I assume you don't if you play old RPGs, this game is worth playing and I enjoyed it as a whole :) it's set up in an interesting world and it's really entertaining and funny. The combat system isn't that bad as many are saying.
It's one of those pre-modern Bioware games - and that's a good thing in my opinion.

I played this game on the XBOX and loved it! It was absolutely amazing. I still have my copy, and only wish they would make a sequel.

With that said, I cannot recommend this port in any way. Run, don't walk, away from this! It isn't even playable on my top-of-the-line system, even after going through the pain of getting it to run in the first place. Sad! Too bad. Guess I'm breaking out my XBOX again.

One of my most beloved childhood games. Anything that came out of early bioware was just gold. It doesn't hold up great but I still think any RPG/KOTOR fan should play this masterpiece.

One of Bioware's earlier games, that does not disappoint! A great game, that still holds up well even now!!! (well i think it does... but i love it alot) If your a fan of other games by BioWare such as Mass Effect (which i also love alot!) you will very much enjoy this!

A lesser-known Bioware gem, Jade Empire boasts an amazing atmosphere inspired by Chinese history and mythology, an engaging story, a whole bunch of likeable companion characters, and a combat system that's simple to use but offers great variety.

I'd love to see a re-release of this game. The technical problems are too great to warrant a YES from me, however.

Outstanding game. Perhaps Bioware's best(and assuredly most overlooked) title. If you are even passingly interested in Chinese mythology, this game is a treat. Also contains an early nemesis voiced by Nathan Fillion, which is always a plus.

One of the best RPGs I've ever played.

It combines the deep world and interesting characters of old RPGs, with a challenging combat systems, and fast dialogues known from modern RPGs. Its story, full of great twists and turns, also clearly shows why BioWare was a loved company before it got bought by EA.

Even after all those years it has aged really well.

Note: It has some problems with Steam for some reason, but works great once fixed.

Okay so final thoughts on the game. It still has that compatibility bug that requires downloading a patch launcher and config.exe that is available in the forums but the game itself is enjoyable. The special edition adds only minor things compared to the original (mostly graphical and AI improvements but also some style upgrades and a new higher difficulty) which is disappointing as it still means the main quest and all side quests can be finished in under 20 hours.

Combat is fun and smooth though the transformation styles are still incredibly OP when maxed out and the martial styles can feel weak late game unless you use chi attacks. There are occassional graphical errors and they can require reloading the game, going into another area, or going into combat to fix. The amount of lore explored in the game is impressive and some of it will play a major role in the main story.

Going down the Closed Fist path can lead the player on a much darker course than the Dark Side from their previous game KoToR but the game does suffer from the fact that a major choice made at the end will decide whether you get the Open Palm or Closed Fist ending (props to Bioware for a 3rd choice to let the antagonist win) no matter your 'alignment' before this choice, though there are multiple endings for the party NPCs. There is good characterization and interaction with and between the party's NPCs and a late game choice can add a serious twist to your relationship with them. I'd say Bioware built upon this in their development of their next game Mass Effect.

Overall an excellent game, if a bit short, and a recommended one if you don't have it or have never played it before. Why a sequel has never been produced is baffling though likely due to Bioware focusing so heavily on the Mass Effect and Dragon Age series, and on Star Wars: The Old Republic.
