Ho giocato a questo gioco appena uscì sull xbox e me ne innamorai. Adesso su pc sto riprovando l emozione di giocare a questo gioco in versione migliorata. Fantastico! Almeno per chi ama questo genere di giochi. Ci gioco con gamepad su windows 7 senza alcun problema

Gran gioco! Gran storia, universo interessantissimo, bei personaggi. Rispetto agli altri canon di BioWare forse quello che ho apprezzato meno qua è che ho sentito meno le scelte, qualcosa c'è (più che altro il grosso delle decisioni è alla fine) ma in generale è molto più lineare. E un po' corto, non mi aspettavo che ci fossero solo due grossi hub e poi si andasse dritti al rush finale. Però bello il colpo di scena. Inutili e strambi i mini-giochi ma per fortuna son skippabili al 100%. E ho skippato pure i romance, principalmente non accorgendomi nemmeno delle opzioni. Meglio così, eh: le preferisco subdole queste cose piuttosto che troppo ovvie e sottolineate, e se te le perdi scegliendo dialoghi genuini per il tuo personaggio vuol dire che per il tuo personaggio è giusto così.
Combattimento: variante interessante dello stile BioWare ma, sopratutto giocato adesso, risulta lento e poco reattivo che proprio per delle arti marziali non è il massimo. Comunque abbastanza facile in generale, li conto su una mano i pochissimi combattimenti che m'han davvero costretto a strategizzare, ragionare, e usare i vari stili in maniera complementare. E per me va bene così, eh, se fosse stato pure difficile non credo l'avrei retto.
E tutto mi fa volere un seguito: innanzitutto, cosa rara per cose orientaleggianti fatte in occidente (mi viene in mente giusto Avatar-Korra), è un universo davvero interessante e ben fatto con su delle ottime basi, e poi il combattimento, appunto lo vorrei vedere in un motore moderno, più veloce e frenetico spaccherebbe e le combo sarebbe davvero soddisfacenti. Speriamo, prima o poi...

Jade Empire won my heart several years ago, when I first played it on the original XBOX. While I recommend the game itself to anyone, I must ADVISE CAUTION TO THOSE SEEKING TO BUY IT ON STEAM. For some, the game will not operate smoothly (if at all) without downloading and installing an additional file. For those of you still needing help, there are many thread discussions regarding this error inside the community forums.

Alternatively, you can download and install the two files that I used (they worked for me) from:

For reference, I believe this is the thread where I originally found the solution:

Now onto the game:

For those of you familiar with BioWare products, it probably won't come as much of a surprise that I would report Jade Empire to be a quality role-playing game. Clearly inspired by ancient Chinese mythology and folklore, this game is both alluring and enticing to players who can appreciate compelling storytelling combined with a refreshing cast of characters.

However, this particular title has a relatively simple design in comparison to many of BioWare's other creations. Don't let this discourage you! In spite of the average first play through lasting 20-30 hours, Jade Empire still proves to be an enjoyable experience worth a second playthrough.

One of my personal favourite aspects of this game is how the player's dialogue can influence the rest of the story. The player can interact with a large amount of NPCs throughout the game, however - like in most RPGs - the players main focus should fall to his/her inner-circle. I can't speak for everyone, but I myself found the interactions to be quite entertaining and likable.

All in all, I'd recommend this game to any lover of RPG's, though again: exercise caution before purchasing this game from Steam. I personally did not mind installing the additional files, but apparently that is call for some controversy. For those of you willing to go through the extra trouble, this game is well worth it (in my opinion).

Really? All you have to do is run Steam as admin...done. It's crazy that some of you call that "jumping through hoops". One google search and one right click. It works great and is a great game.

Welcome all that will read this, and now to the review!

(Personal experience below, move down to "Rating" if you just want to see what its about in small details)

The first time I laid eyes on this game, I was late middle school and I thought it looked awesome just because I saw X-Play review it themselves (way back when X-Play wasn't controlled or canceled now) but what really pulled me into wanting this game was the mini episode inside X-Play called "Cheats" which showed how to get a M. art style that is hard to get or some extra silver you can get from a character or how to romance a companion, which I thought was great, also it showed how to beat bosses and how to do things if you wanted to be evil or the good guy side.


Now I have the game and I am in love with this game, to the story to the side quests, to the weird companions to the demons you'll face, I could go on and on about this game but I think you get the point.

With this said, I need to point out the faults and great ideas of this game:


Same voices on non-important npcs
Can't backflip outside of combat
"Looking at the floor" glitch
Weird character movements
Easy bosses (if you have mastered a fighting style)
Kind of cheesy and somewhat predictable storyline
Some of the mouths of npcs don't match to what they are saying (I thought this was a throwback to older chinese/japanese movies but I'm not sure)
Past level 15 your unstoppable
This game will not play correctly if you don't have a patch from a guide on steam on windows 8/8.1 (manual install)
Wishes you have a asian girlfriend (or boyfriend if your a women)


Every companion has their own voice actor and usually special characters do also
The fighting styles can be used in many combinations with another fighting styles
Different perks from all companions
TONS of side quests
China history referances
Funny side quests and dialogue
Epic story
Its equally fun being good and evil
Companion storylines connected to the main storyline
+1 for buns (you'll get it)
Love interests (maybe sexy time?)
You can do barrel-rolls
You fly a plane with jets
Also your a ghost jedi/seth lord


I will give this game a 8 out of 10 for what this game brings to the table, fun-fast gameplay, a addicting game that you can't knock out of your head for weeks and keep coming back for more, a change of pace from shooters/RPGs/etc, a good karma system, great music and more.

I recommend this game for players that are tired of the same "dumb and dumber" (shooters) type of gaming and want something different but even if your looking for a new classic, then this is your kind of gem you'll enjoy.
