  1. Great Game!
    by Jason Ey, USA - Nov 5th 2013

    From the same makers of Knights of the Old Republic, follows a roughly similar excellent game experience.
    Learn Kung-Fu and battle across ancient china. Excellent gameplay and story. There is plenty of re-play value as well. I've never had any downloading or in-game issues. Runs well and is fun. Would have been better if they had made some changes to the fighting styles, don't get amped up for drunken boxing it sucks in this game, however it is a fun game.

  2. Worth Your Time
    by Elias Chapelle, USA - Nov 2nd 2013

    The best RPG offer a combination of action and story and Jade Enpire fills the bill nicely. There is one unfortunate glitch that does not seem ever to have been fixed but it luckily does not ruin the game but was not fixed with an upgrade.The game is only workable on older Macs.

    Unfortunately, the game does not work on any Mac OS greater than Snow Leopard. If you use OS 10.7 or above you are out of luck and there is absolutely NO SUPPORT so do not waste your money.

  3. Bioware At It's Best
    by Doc Savage, USA - Aug 26th 2013

    This is quite simply a great game. Some folks will complain that it's not a REAL Mac app because it's Cider port, but I've played it through a couple of times now and don't recall having any significant problems.

    The plot is wonderfully intricate as you begin as a student of Master Li at Two Rivers, advancing in skill and fighting styles, traveling through a multitude of locations. In typical Bioware fashion, the story line just keep going and going with side quests up the wazzoo.

    The voice talent is also excellent, with notable appearances from Monty Python's John Cleese, and fans of Firefly and Castle may recognize Nathan Fillian as Gao the Lesser.

    While the game was developed in 2005, the graphics are for the most part beautiful. Do yourself a favor and occasionally just stop and take a look around at your surroundings. Some of the locations are quite stunning.

    The game itself is pretty basic compared to more modern games of this style. There are only three attributes to level up and no equipment to speak of. You do collect gems which you can equip to alter your stats and provide additional abilities, select fighting styles, a few of which include weapons, but that's about it.

    Still, the plot is engaging and extensive, providing a good 20-30 hours of entertainment.
