Turn-based combat bores me now. JE's combat is fast and very fun. It has alot of depth too although it's not the type of depth you get from action games. It's more RPG-like depth even though it plays like an action game.

The graphics are mind-blowing, the story is un-paralleled and the soundtrack suits everything ou see perfectly.

I'm not done yet, but this is one RPG that's not boring me.

there also is SO many side quests to do.

How about you play them and find out for yourself.... Seriously man, it's allright for you to have your own opinion.

Maybe I'll try it sometime. I like Oriental themed games.

Jade sucks, well, no, but it isn't the best RPG I ever played.(and I've played relatively few RPGs)

IMO the only thing it has over KOTOR is the graphics.

combat is too easy, sure there are all these different styles, but it's not necessary to use them. jump over foe, 3 hit combo, repeat until dead.

I beat it in about 15 hours, and I took my time, I did almost everyting I could find.(I figure I got to about 80% completion)

IMO, it was fun, for the 5 days it lasted.

BTW, a local Games Magazine, had as an arguement against the game: "Some RPG experience required for leveling up"

^And that right there is basically Jade in a nutshell.

I thought the game was allright, I did NOT like the combat system in the game though. Most of the styles felt clunky to me. Story was good, and all the decisions you make to shape your characters path really start to leave you with a sense of doubt of some earlier choices. I thought that was pretty cool how a game was making me question my judgement.
Graphics were nice and the voice acting, although a little generic, was good and better than what you'd find in most games. I just can't help but hold the games combat system against it. Daemon was basically right when he said jump over foe, 3 hit combo, repeat because it will work with most of the enemies. And even though you can change between styles on the fly I'd rarely use the others. Seemed kind of pointless when your standard style is getting you through most of the game...

I'd give Jade an 8/10.

Hmm... the thing about Kotor I hated was the autocombat. Not even turn based, it just takes it all out of your hands. If Jade has some actual combat I may give it a chance at some point.

Theres actual combat in Jade. Think of Jade as an Action/RPG.
