Jade Empire - SE Review @ The Escapist

by Dhruin, 2007-04-29 22:46:24

Jade Empire SE has been reviewed at The Escapist and while there's no score, they clearly loved it:

This iteration of the alignment system is surprisingly mature, allowing your decisions to be more than snappy dialogue patter. I remember one particular instance early on, where I captured one of the enemy's lackeys and interrogated him. After extracting every bit of useful information from him, I let him beg for his life for a while, and then my sidekick and I executed him on the spot and took his money, which was incredibly awesome, because snitches get stitches. And as in most of the other Bioware games, you can warp your sidekicks to your way of thinking, as well as working the romance angle or verbally abusing them for daring to show interest in you. It's pretty sophisticated, especially as we're still mired in the "YOU = GOOD, THEM = EVIL" era of gaming.
