  • Innovative fighting system: Master fighting styles and mystical powers in a tale that matches the tempo and fury found in Hong Kong cinema favorites like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and the Bruce Lee classics. As you journey through Jade Empire, you can upgrade your combat style or learn entirely new styles to tailor a character to your specific gameplay preferences. Select from more than 20 different fighting styles, each with its own unique moves, speed, power, and form, ranging from punches and kicks to weapon strikes, mystical powers, and even transformations into supernatural monsters!

It really was a great game, and only thing that held is back was the broken combat. By broken I mean extremely easy with the right martial arts, I forget what I used but I literally blew thru the game without much problems. Also the "mini stages" where u shoot em up raiden style was completely awesome and I'd like to see that in more of their WRPGs.

Well that was only the sales in others. I guess it would be around 0.8 million with NA.

Wow I am shocked I was thinking at least 1/2 mill. Specially since KOTOR came out after this but I guess it was sort of a niche market. Martial arts and RPG elements can't do wrong in my book.
