The Escapist: Guest Review: Jade Empire

There is an old Chinese proverb that states "small flaw is glaring on face of perfection." Jade Empire takes this proverb and runs with it.

An action-RPG from the BioWare stable, Jade Empire comes so close to being a classic it's scary. Yet small imperfections hold this game back from being special..It's rare to play a game where its tiny flaws and questionable design choice are so evident, and it's only because the game without these errors in judgment would be one of the greats.

Jade Empire puts you in the shoes of a young warrior charged with rescuing your master and bringing back a harmonious balance between the land of the living and the land of the dead in a grand old tale in the tradition of Kabuki theatre. From there, your character will pick up a rag-tag army of supporting players as you wander the feudal orient. (Jade Empire, Jade Empire: Special Edition, PC) -
