Inside Mac Games (IMG)
Firstly, the game itself is certainly worthy of the money, if you haven't played it yet. If you've already gone through the game on the Xbox, there is little here to make you play through the story again. If not, there is nearly 20 hours of gameplay to be had, and three different endings to discover. Secondly, I think that it is worth supporting GameTree Online. This service is new, but is quickly expanding its catalogue of downloadable games, with titles such as Spore, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones, and City of Heroes available to purchase as we speak. The idea of being able to play these games without having to tote around a bunch of CDs/DVDs is quite compelling, and worth a bit in my book. So, by purchasing Jade Empire, not only are you getting a great gaming experience, you are helping a worthy Macintosh gaming service. What more could you want?
Tolle Handlung, gute Performance und guter Sound. Rollenspieler-Herz, was willst du mehr? Gut die Profis wünschen sich mehr Tiefgang, etwas mehr taktische Raffinesse. Ich als einfacher Spieler sehe in Jade Empire ein großartiges Spiel, welches seinen verdienten Weg auf den Mac gefunden hat. Auch die viel gescholtene Cider-Engine kann bei diesem Spiel nur gelobt werden. Das einzige was mich wirklich stört ist die lange Startzeit beim ersten Start.
Jade Empire is several years old and the bloom may be off the lotus flower for some, especially Xbox gamers who have already played it. But for others, Jade Empire offers a lot of fun action and adventure in a martial arts movie-inspired setting, created by true masters of the modern action RPG genre.
