Winter!: Prepare for holiday gaming!
My review of Jade Empire is slightly negative after playing it for six hours and thinking on it for a day. My main issues that stand out are the blandness of not only the story itself but the quests that are offered. The environments are fine and even a little lovely if you can get past the fact they are a little dated. The controls and combat system are fun and a little out of the box from Bioware, being able to switch weapons/styles with a simple press of the number keys was a surprising gem. But when it comes back to the story I was generally unimpressed with the generic role playing aspects. I was not drawn into the story and after 6 hours of gametime I feel no draw to return to play the game. Friends of mine have encouraged me to finish because the ending is pretty awesome, but I why should I wade through crap to get the ending? I shouldnt. so in the end my review of Jade Empire is as follows:
