In due time of release Jade empire a whole army of gamers awaited, impressed by the developer’s previous projects.

The plot of the game is built around the main character, a student of the school of martial arts, who, by the will of fate, learns that he is “the chosen one.” His village is being spread by enemies and the guy is forced to hit the road to find the villains and take revenge on them.

From the first steps in Jade empire there is no doubt that the action is through and through linear. The proprietary “trick” of BioWare with a developed relationship between the characters, although present, does not cause delight, to put it mildly.

The development of the protagonist comes down to replenishing skills and mastering new fighting styles. And this minimalism is a step backward for BioWare when you look at its previous projects.
