Possibly the best game that the old Bioware produced.
They succeeded in introducing a beautiful and unique environment for RPG fans, different from the tested and tried western medieval setting.
No more Good vs Evil.
And all the sweet fighting stances!!!
Be sure to experiment with Combo's, if you find the battles too boring.
And after you have enjoyed the story once, you canread more play through in Grand Master mode, which is the real challenge.
When you find yourself playing as one of your companions (small mini-games), be sure to check out the log. It's hilarious.
I still hope for a Jade Empire II

Jade Empire is a magical journey to the far east, which was unfortunately underappreciated at the time of release.
While it isn't a story-heavyweight like the earlier Baldurs Gate and Neverwinter Night stories from Bioware, this game finds a good balance between story and action.
Jade Empire has a unique setting (fantasy-asia with a side order of steampunk), interesting companionsread more and really cool martial arts fights. So if you like good RPGs and/or enjoy martial arts movies, get this game and play one yourself.

One of the most beatiful settings ever shown in an rpg.
The combat is a little monotonous at the end of the day, but overall it is a great game. Interesting story, awesome characters and many exotic places. If you like Kung Fu Movies and/or RPGs then Jade Empire is a must buy!
Great to see it on GoG.
