Jade Empire: Special Edition is an award-winning action RPG from the makers of Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Experience a unique combination of fast paced martial arts action with a gripping, character driven story set in a mythical land. Each decision builds your reputation, changing the course of interactions with other characters and followers. Take the role of a master of martial arts, and recruit followers to your cause in an interactive, living world.

Embark on an epic journey with fascinating characters across a graphically beautiful, fantastic new world inspired by the myths and legends of ancient China. Sinister events upset the peaceful harmony of an isolated martial arts school, drawing you into a story that unfolds with drama, action, and adventure. Detailed followers and other non-player characters enrich the adventure by providing comic relief, rivalries, flirtations, and hostility. Stare in awe at the sweeping views of the lush environments, sheer vertical drops, and overpowering scale that provide the visual backdrop to the story. Confront wild outlaws, evil magicians, demonic incarnations, and other foul villains that protect the Jade Empire’s darkest secrets.

Editors’ Notes

We love BioWare for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and their other epic role-playing games, but this particular gem from their back catalog shines like a glorious green dragon. Infused with Chinese myth and populated by unforgettable characters, Jade Empire: Special Edition is a beautiful update of the classic action-RPG. The intuitive touch controls make it that much easier for us to get lost in its massive, martial-arts world of intrigue, adventure—and even a bit of romance.

Pretty good iOS port with some room to improve

What it needs most:
1) freeze action from the Mac version that lets you halt everything, look around, and select your enemies
2) camera control that lets you look around sometimes—like at the floating palace that you otherwise can’t even see above the capital
3) setting for manual-only enemy switching.
4) some easier way to switch between all fighting styles than remapping the quick switcher

- it works on iPhone and iPad!
- clever addition of Cloud Save to allow transfer between devices
- I’m able to play fairly well with the touch controls, both regular and advanced

- it often gets into a choppy state after sleeping that can only be fixed by doing the “iOS force quit” and relaunching
- all touch controls in advanced mode only work VERY LOW down. I wasn’t able to heal until I happened to do it near the bottom of the screen.
- not having the things I previously listed as “needing most” make the gameplay less enjoyable and less in control
- if the cloud saving could be automatic without too much trouble, that would keep us from getting stranded on a device that doesn’t have the latest save(s) on it

Jade awesomeness:special edition

Hello the Jade empire: special edition, okay I owned this game for the Xbox way back when. Anyone who doubts this is the game STOP. This is it! I like the touch screen controls, at first I was concerned but ounce I began playing the controls are very much like the OG controls from the xbox. The graphics are somehow look better on the iPhone and the sound, combat, it’s all great. With that said, walking around I found was a little bit of a challenge. You walk straight just fine, but walking and turning can be a bit sticky. But that’s the only problem so far I found. All dialogue box’s are nice and big you can easily scroll through and choose the answer you want. The game isn’t super hard, but it isn’t easy ether. And the fact I haven’t seen one ad is super cool too. For $10 I mean may sound like a lot but but in the day they charged $50+ so you’re getting the whole game for $10. That’s a great deal. The Jade empire is a true masterpiece.
