Jade Empire was originally released on the XBOX back in 2005, and only recently made its way to the PC. It's a simple but addictive RPG game based around an ancient chinese fighting theme.
If you like the RPG genre crossed with some classic mortal kombat style fighting, chances are you'll enjoy playing this game.
To get a better idea of whether or not it's for you, have a read of Nathan's fresh review on it over at TTGamer folks.
When you think of the company BioWare, you think of RPG's such as Neverwinter Nights, Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, and Star Wars: Knights of the old Republic. In 2005, a new name was added to that list with Jade Empire on the Xbox, and while it had its share of flaws, it was a generally well received game. Finally, after about a 10 month wait since its announcement, the Windows platform has been graced with its own version of Jade Empire and while an effort has been made to take advantage of the PC platform, much of the game remains the same.
