Jade Empire: Special Edition is an award-winning action RPG from the makers of Dragon Age and Mass Effect. Experience a unique combination of fast paced martial arts action with a gripping, character driven story set in a mythical land. Each decision builds your reputation, changing the course of interactions with other characters and followers. Take the role of a master of martial arts, and recruit followers to your cause in an interactive, living world.

Embark on an epic journey with fascinating characters across a graphically beautiful, fantastic new world inspired by the myths and legends of ancient China. Sinister events upset the peaceful harmony of an isolated martial arts school, drawing you into a story that unfolds with drama, action, and adventure. Detailed followers and other non-player characters enrich the adventure by providing comic relief, rivalries, flirtations, and hostility. Stare in awe at the sweeping views of the lush environments, sheer vertical drops, and overpowering scale that provide the visual backdrop to the story. Confront wild outlaws, evil magicians, demonic incarnations, and other foul villains that protect the Jade Empire’s darkest secrets.

Editors' Notes

We love BioWare for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and their other epic role-playing games, but this particular gem from their back catalog shines like a glorious green dragon. Infused with Chinese myth and populated by unforgettable characters, Jade Empire: Special Edition is a beautiful update of the classic action-RPG. The intuitive touch controls make it that much easier for us to get lost in its massive, martial-arts world of intrigue, adventure—and even a bit of romance.

This game is brilliant

Joshua Patton

This game is by far, one of the best games out there, I completed the game in about 30 hours plus I still had loads of quests to do, so that's basically another 10+ hours, if you liked KOTOR then you'll love this, it's basically Kung fu real time KOTOR that's in the past, with magic. But with out a doubt this game is better then most, I would say it goes par with KOTOR, also to the developers, keep on pushing out games like this because these, even thoe a decade late, are the best games on iOS and I'm sure it'll stay like that for a long time. To clarify, 1- buy this game, it's worth it,2- thanks to the people who put this on iOS, 3- one of the best games on the AppStore by far.

Amazing port


I can't believe this game, which I used to play as a kid, now fits in my pocket. What an absolute marvel - it's amazing fun (I'm already on another play through).

Beautiful settings, inspired story, and great voice acting. I can't believe it's available on iOS - it's an amazing port considering its former life of XBox/PC.

The only thing I really disliked is the targeting system in the game, which is bizarre and counter intuitive at times. A 'cycle to next target' button is seriously lacking, as the action is fast paced and there is no pause button. It really affects the playability.

Other than that hiccup, it's absolutely brilliant and I cannot recommend more highly. Hopefully this renews interest into this painfully under-explored series.
