A note on my ratings and preferences:

I have never been able to come close to giving a game 5 stars. There are just way too many ways for a game to go wrong. I am not opposed, indeed I dream of encountering a 5 star game. It has just never happened. 5 stars would mean it was a work of art. 4 stars means it was a truly excellent game that I highly recommend, but it will still have problems. 3 stars is mainly positive but with notable problems- worth trying depending on your preferences. 2 stars is seriously problematic and not recommended.

I prefer storyline and character in a game. I am not terribly good at games and have a very low frustration level and so like the difficulty on the easy side, however, I will fight through difficult play if I really like the game. I read complaints sometimes about games being too short, but I have yet to find one that was too short and rarely finish the games I play. My favorite genres are rpgs and action adventure, but I will try anything.

Jade empire, a beautiful game I loved, is a classic example of the four stars above. Easily one of the best games I ever played I can still name a lot of small things wrong with it. It's funny, before I started playing computer/video games in the current 3D generation I would have assumed that a great many of these games would be much like jade empire. These would be games with strong stories, meaningful dialogue choices, intelligible character development, people to talk to, heroism, at least somewhat diverse challenges, and, yes, fighting. It is still surprising to me how rare bioware is and how rare a game like this is.

Got this game as I had seen all the good reviews and decided to check it out. Got it in and installed it on my Win 10 Pro system without a problem. It was trying to start the game that gave me problems. First you need the CD in the drive to play. Second, the game runs the configuration utility when it starts the first time. Turns out the problems with this game ARE the configuration utility! It runs and you select you setup and then it's suppose to run the game with your settings, but it doesn't work that way. It crashes every time you run it after you've set your setup and never runs the game. You have to bypass it to run the game and make your settings in game. After you do this the game runs great. I found it to be a good looking game and from my first impressions will require a bit of work to get use to, but well worth the effort. Not Bad at all.....

The mighty Jade Empire spans a vast amount of territory, protected by the Wall and ruled over by the Emperor, who commands a huge army, an elite cadre of warriors known as the Lotus Assassins and a fleet of heavily-armed aircraft. In a sleepy village called Two Rivers, Master Li runs a school teaching students in the ways of martial arts. Two of his students show high promise. When the school is attacked and Master Li is captured by the Lotus Assassins, his students have to make their way to the Imperial City and learn what is going on.

Jade Empire is a relatively minor entry to the BioWare canon, although still a very good one. It was their first attempt to make an original game not reliant on any existing franchise (their earlier games were set in the Forgotten Realms or Star Wars settings). It was also a direct attempt to appeal to a wider audience. Whilst still definitely an RPG, the more stat-heavy elements and inventory management were reduced in favour of action. In fact, the game is more of a contextualised beat 'em up rather than an RPG, although still featuring all the moral choices, excellent characterisation and twisting storyline that we have come to expect from BioWare over the years.

The Eastern setting, in stark contrast to the traditional Western fantasy of the earlier Baldur's Gate games, is interesting, original and vivid. The art design in Jade Empire is fantastic, with lots of colourful backdrops and interesting architecture. Character models are also highly detailed. The Special Edition, which is exclusive to the PC, made use of an extra two years of development to radically enhance the graphics, AI and controls far beyond the original X-Box settings, resulting in a considerably stronger and far more attractive game.

I like Jade Empire a whole lot, I won't lie. It only took me about 15 hours to beat, and the graphics and music were quite excellent! About halfway, once you start consulting your little group as a whole, the characters really shine . And let's face it, you play RPG's because you want a good story. Jade Empire delivers!

My only beef is this:

There's just too much forced dialogue. Yes, you know my name. Yes, you've probably heard of me. Yes, I assume you have a troublesome past as well. Do we have to stand around and talk about nothing for 15 minutes though?

Normally I get into RPG's with heavy dialogue, but then it usually serves to advance the plot. With just about every character I met, it felt like I was trapped in another dumb script. And obviously, if you get impatient you can earn brownie points for being evil, but tiptoeing through and staying neutral or good in conversation doesn't really affect your moral standing as much as a side quest does. And even then, you don't have to try hard to sway either way, because halfway through the plot, the game decides to shift you right into the choice you're nearest to.

The benefit of swinging good or evil, by the way, only gives you different abilities and potential power-ups. I don't think there's any way the plot will change significantly by going "the alternative route."

Also, the voice acting is great (Nathan Fillion plays Lesser Gao; geek points!), but like a bad kung-fu movie, it's hard to get over how much the voices don't fit the visual profiles of the characters. Read into that as much as you like. I just wish it was a little more authentic, if you know what I mean.

Anywho, get it! It's like $6 at the most here on Amazon, if you buy it used, which I certainly couldn't pass up.
