Looking Back... Jade Empire

Postby humorguy » 10 Jun 2007, 16:08

Instead of looking back to an average console conversion game (for Bioware) that is barely 3 months old, why not talk about Half ife 2 and Far Cry and ask why these engines are still not being used so we had PC games that would still look good but not demand constant PC upgrades?

Looking back on a game like this confers status that this game does not deserve. This was a now typical lazy console port that just didn't care about Pc gamers wants. Typical. But not justifiable, and not deserving of this all too soon and way over-rated 'Look Back'!

I have heard rumours that The Last Express is going to be re-released, maybe we can read something about a REAL classic game like that and get it re-reviewed in time for the re-release?! And I haven't seen a serious re-review of the new Kings Quest, Police Quest and Space Quest collections from Sierra, again, REAL classics.

What passes for a classic today would make games from the 80's and 90's turn over in their old people's homes! This is one title that will NOT be remembered by history. How ever much PC Zone tries.

Jade Empire was one of the best stories I still remember. Most of the games today are either sequels or spin offs.
Good game.

Come on, leave the staff writers alone. They were probably interviewing Bioware for one thing and took the chance to use this time productively for another feature.

Working on a magazine can be difficult because you've got a lot of space to fill and these days - with journalism budgets being slashed and the profession undergoing a slow painfull death in favour of PR - resources are very tight.
