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:

9.5/10

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

edit:
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.

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.

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.

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 ♥♥♥♥.

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.

Look Closely for the Wires [3/5]

Those with a taste for Wuxia film will enjoy the authenticity of kicking martial butt through BioWare's rich world of (mostly) traditional Chinese fantasy, but this title is not without it's fair share of problems.

Nearly a decade after first release, it would be unrealistic to expect Jade Empire to represent the pinnacle of modern gaming experience; but if you can get past the idea that 2005 brought more than just the meteoric rise of WoW and a sequel to Battlefield, there is still plenty of entertainment to be had.

For the most part, bags of kung-pow action, offbeat one-liners and a colourful cast including John Cleese (yes, that John Cleese) distract from the game's more serious shortcomings; and although far from perfect, the story is strong enough to carry you most of the way with tongue planted firmly in cheek.

Combat is the clear focus for much of the title, and while hardcore gamers will probably be disappointed at the simplicity of A-buttoning your opponent(s) to a meaty pulp, there are a number of different fighting styles to switch between that keep beatings somewhat fresh.

Taking nothing away from many other reviewers who could not get this title to run at all, somewhat surprisingly, Jade Empire fired up first time on my own modest system (Win7, 32 bit). Aside from one story-halting bug about half way through - fixed with a simple patch in my case - the title ran without hitch. Judging by other reviews however, I'd be wary of purchasing this title for a Windows 8 system.

Despite the age of this title, the occasional bug, and it's clunky, badly dated interface, I'd still recommend this to those with a love of Wuxia, or just looking for something a little different.

While the game itself is awesome, the version is just terrible. After reinstalling the game after a while it was impossible to get it running because it was unable to find steam (oh the irony) and I am not the only person with this problem. I tried to fix it, but imho it is the publisher's task to provide a smooth gaming expierence instead of just unleashing the game onto steam no matter what.

If you want to get this game, get it elsewhere.

Jade Empire is the perfect showcase to Bioware's approach to RPGs. This is the game that helped set the foundation for the Mass effects and the Dragon Ages. 20+ hrs of gameplay. Interesting Combat system. Gongshow cast of Companions. Mutiple endings. Nuff said.

Short version: 76%
Jade Empire is a solid BioWare adventure game with an enjoyable world and storyline, complemented by a frustrating combat system and stripped-down RPG mechanics. It probably won’t be your favourite action game of all time, but you definitely won’t regret playing it.

Long version:
Jade Empire was created between the releases of two highly successful titles, which later overshadowed its existence, although not without reasons. At its core Jade Empire is nothing more than an attempt to recreate the success of Knights of the Old Republic with a new world based on a highly fictional version of early Imperial China. For the most part, it works well… just don’t expect much historical accuracy, especially on the shoot-em-up stages against the ancient Chinese Luftwaffe. Yes, you read this correctly.

An RPG usually is as good as its story, and the game won’t let you down in this regard. The plot is solid with a few good twists, the characters are memorable enough, and the mandatory romance subplot doesn’t feel as forced as in most games. But it’s hard not to notice that most quests are recycled from KotOR and Neverwinter Nights.

So, why is Jade Empire so obscure and forgotten? For two reasons. The first is the lack of actual role-playing elements, and the second being the combat system.
This was the first title where BioWare tried real-time player-controled action instead of random-based mechanics, and it’s not working too well. Fighting is just mindless button mashing and the hit detection is beyond horrendous; using hand-to-hand styles almost equals a death sentence. As you can imagine, this creates slight issues in a Kung Fu game.

Still, Jade Empire is a solid title, and highly recommended for those who like BioWare’s KotOR era. Set the difficulty to easy or medium to avoid the frustration over the combat system, and enjoy this little piece of uniqueness.

This game is truly a really great game. It is a brilliant game that is just beautiful. I absolutely loved it on the xbox and was overjoyed to find it here on steam. I would truly love nothing more than to highly recommend it to anyone and everyone... Sadly though I can not as it does not work on steam nor does it look like that will change anytime in the near future. There are a few lucky souls who after hours upon hours of tinkering have gotten this game to work for them... Sadly though they are a very, very, very small percent. If your PC happen to be running anything remotely new do not expect this game to work. Expect to see many, many "Failed to find steam" messages. I bought this game back in March and I have tinkered with it for countless hours, have tried every work around that exists on the internet and have yet to see it work. IF this game ever gets fixed (and that is looking like a very big IF)... IF by some miracle this game ever does happen to get fixed I would highly recommend it but at this point that looks like it will never happen. For now save your money and buy something that actually works. Valve, EA, and BioWare really dropped the ball on this amazing game.

Okay, I really like this game. But it doesn't work right from the install. You need to run notepad as an administrator, create a file called "SystemInformation.xml" with it in the data folder of the Jade Empire game, then set the game to run in compatibility mode for XP service pack 2. Pain in the rear, and there's no real support from the original publishers. But it was worth it, and I got it on sale.

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.

Jade Empire is a fantastic game. It is a beautiful mix of fantasy and actual Chinese history. The port is not as poor as everyone makes it out to be. The problems it has can be fixed within 15 - 40 min, it’s not that hard.

If your game has an error that says "can’t find steam" go to this link and follow the instructions.

After that the configuration launcher will start and crash miserably. When that happens go to this link.
