Jade Empire - SE Review @ Gamers with Jobs

by Dhruin, 2007-03-13 21:55:26

GwJ has written an in-character review of Jade Empire Special Edition in the form of a conversation with the "Master".  There's no score as usual for this site (and it wouldn't suit the format) but the author clearly enjoyed the game despite some quibbles.  Here's an example:

The old man sighed and reflected for a moment, then replied "You have two paths to take, dear student. One leads to BioWare fanboyism, one leads to cold-hearted rationality. You can only choose one, so choose carefully."

"But Master, why must there only be two paths? Surely I can…" My eyes widened as I finally understood what he wanted me to notice. "Yes, that is something that bothered me. It claims that the decisions I make follow one of two philosophical doctrines, the Way of the Open Palm or the Way of the Closed Fist. However, like all their previous games it almost always amounts to either being a Mr. Goody Two-Shoes or a Sir Hates-a-lot."

"I am unaware of these men you speak of."

"I mean, there’s no moral ambiguity. You’re either a outrageously nice guy or a complete jerk. I wish there were more in-between choices, and I’m not talking about being a true neutral either."
