The first 10 minutes : Demo of Jade Empire

The first 10 minutes : Demo of Jade Empire

Jade Empire was the first ever game I wrote about on Xboxyde. 18 months ago, it's finally playable in this way too short demo. In this video I try showing most of what you can do with one of the characters we almost never saw in movement before. Too bad it's so short...



Pas grand chose à dire malheureusement avec cette démo bien trop courte. Vous constaterez par vous même que les graphismes sont de qualité, les animations pas aussi mauvaises que ce qu'on aurait pu craindre, sans pour autant atteindre des sommets de fluidités dans les enchainements. La musique est comme prévu magnifique, et les bruitages sans génie (les voix lors des changements de style deviennent vite gonflantes) mais efficaces.

Le système de combat est aussi intéressant que prévu, permettant de réellement s'impliquer contrairement aux RPG classiques. Les personnages répondent plutôt bien aux commandes, mais il aurait été intéressant de pouvoir créer ses combos plutot que de rester coincé avec une petite palette de coup par style de combat. Difficile toutefois de se faire une vraie opinion après 5 pauvres minutes de jeu.

Y a même des rats géants, ça déchire !

  • Tiz
    Tiz Gears 4 is a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, which is great if you loved Gears 3. @alimokrane: I'm partial to the Embar & Overkill. (26 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @Phaethon360: I agree on the enemy variety, definataly but I simply love the little tricks and bits they added here and there. Best weapon has to be the DropShot. Ball of fun! (28 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz But with regards to variety, do you mean enemy variety? Because I agree. That is spot on. Gears 3 had so many different Locust & Lambent classes which kept Horde rounds fresh, Gears 4 does not. (49 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz PhaeKO outta nowhere. Rod said he wanted to do it right before doing it different and 343 were the blueprint for this which is why a lot of the Gears community still remains intact. (51 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 That and the variety just isn't there. So many different enemy and weapon types in Gears 2, which was the high point of the series for me. Gears 3 wasn't bad but it was on the downswing for me. (56 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I really dislike Gears 4. Horde 3.0 was a disappointment, and the mechanics haven't changed much since Gears 1. After playing the remake so soon it just felt like more of the same. (57 minutes ago)
