Under The Radar: Jade Empire

   0

Hint: it involves this guy.

As might be the case with this series, it could be that Iím looking back too harshly on a game that came out years ago. Maybe in 2005, Jade Empire was considered cutting edge with a riveting story. Maybe I just donít ďget it.Ē However, I canít help but think thatís not the case, especially considering Knights of the Old Republic came out two years earlier (there will be an article dedicated to KotOR in the futureóonce I actually play it).

For better or worse, Jade Empire flew under the radar for me. I remember hearing about it, but I never gave it a second thought until a couple of weeks ago. Still despite the missteps with the story, the slightly lackluster combat, and the sudden shift toward a linear gameplay experience, Jade Empire illuminates how far BioWare has come as a crafter of top-notch RPGs in the past six years.

Next up on Under the Radar: depending on when I finish it, Dead Space. While itís a mainstream game thatís only a few years old, it flew under my radar because I was too scared to try and play itÖuntil now.

Hey Dtoid, I'm TriplZer0.



I'm a science fiction, fantasy, and speculative fiction writer by trade, but aside from writing, video games are my biggest passion. I also write over at Gamer Limit.

The first console my brothers and I ever got was an SNES for Christmas one year. Since then, we've owned an N64, Playstation, PS2, and an Xbox 360. I got a Gameboy Color one year for Christmas, but my brothers are more into handheld gaming than me. Every time they upgrade to the latest system I get their hand-me-downs. That's how I obtained my GBA and my two DS's. Handheld gaming for some reason doesn't interest me even though I know there are great games out there. The first console I've ever been the exclusive owner of is my PS3. The first games I ever played were Super Mario World, F-Zero, 7th Saga (which I've written about), and Out of This World.

My favorite genres are RPGs (Western or Japanese), FPS, action/adventure, and RTS (even though I suck at them).
