Excellent

1 of the best games I’ve ever played

This game is fantastic, there is so much to do. I can’t complement the developers attention to detail enough. Well written story and dialog with detailed Asian cultural background and philosophies. Voice acting is superb. Character development is very good and even funny. It took me 31 hours to finish the 7 levels. I skipped some of the side quests but when I replay, I will do everything.

One of the biggest turn offs to RPG games for me is that they can get to be very complicated and take a lot of time to learn. Not so here. You can do a lot of customizing and enhancements to your character from a relatively simple menu.

Re-playability is excellent, you can play with different characters with different strengths/philosophies.

Compare this to Mass Effect (also awesome) but Jade Empire has a much more detailed story and is easily 2x the gameplay. The graphics are last gen. but this game definitely holds up.

The only complaint is that there seems to be an excessive amount of load time between maps.

This game will appeal to most gamers unless they are too young to read and comprehend a detailed story. Recommended for everyone.

Be sure to take time to complete all of the side quests. There is no time limit on the main mission.

If you liked playing Fable or Sudeki, you'll enjoy this martial arts and magic RPG. I played several characters through, with variations in character alignment, and had a great time playing the game. Jade Empire is also one of the few games where playing an evil character has a great end game payoff.

Not since Final Fantasy VII and KOTR, have I enjoyed an RPG this much. The visuals and story were great. However, I did not use some of the characters as I found them not very useful to accomplish objectives. I would recommend this game to anybody who enjoys a good story and action/adventure games.
