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.

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.

Great "wuxia" RPG good MFI controller support

First, to correct a previous reviewer's comment: the iOS version does support the "area attack" through a MFI game controller. You just have to hit both power attack and quick attack buttons together. This was definitely confusing since it's not listed in the controller diagram in the game menu. Area attack is vital since it pushes clumps of enemies away.

Besides that this is a classic Bioware RPG. The combat is definitely real-time relative to say KotOR but is basically positioning and rock-paper-scissors. It does get pretty awkward on touch which is why I bought a steelseries Bluetooth controller which has worked well so far in a day of play.

The voice acting is generally very good. The plot and humor are rather cliched but nevertheless fun.
