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 !
