Jade Empire - SE Review @ GameBanshee
A three-page review of Jade Empire SE is up at GameBanshee, with a score of 8.2/10. Here's a snip:
When BioWare developed Jade Empire, they took sort of a minimalist approach to character development. Each character only has three ability scores -- body, spirit, and mind -- and each score affects a lot of things. For example, the spirit score affects how much “chi” you have, and chi can be used to power spells, add damage to melee attacks, and heal your character. Similarly, the mind score affects how much “focus” you have, and focus powers some weapon attacks, and you can use it to slow down time during combat. That is, all three scores are important to all classes of characters, and you have to be careful about how you spend the ability points you receive each time you gain a level.
GameBanshee has also updated their JE subsite with new media and information.
