10 Games That Deserve A Reboot Or Sequel Part 6 – Jade Empire

I have very fond memories of Jade Empire. I stay still play it today. It’s one of those games that I can play forever and it’s always bugged me that Bioware never made a sequel to this game. It’s been a little too long for a sequel now though, but a reboot would be very nice. 

Jade-Empire-pictureI’m not talking about re-releasing the same old game with upgraded graphics. I’m talking about a real reboot. With today’s technology Jade Empire could be something really special. The fighting styles back in the day were good, but they lack polish today and it shows when you’re playing the game.

They could probably take a Batman approach to the fighting, but tweak it to where it’s not just a rip from Batman. It really does seem like Bioware is just focused on milking Dragon Age and Mass Effect these days and it’s sad because they have a lot of really great games under them that deserve some attention.

Jade Empire is a true classic that sadly never got a sequel despite how many fans have petitioned, begged, and screamed for it over the years. It really is a shame because Jade Empire is the most original game that Bioware ever made.

jade-empire-02Maybe one day we’ll see Jade Empire make a comeback. I doubt it’ll ever happen as long as Bioware is at the helm though. I wouldn’t mind seeing another company make Jade Empire 2 though.

Jade Empire didn’t break any sales records or become a smash hit in a single day like Dragon Age, but it does have a pretty big following and I know I’m not alone when I say it’s been way too long and this game deserves another chance.

  1. Yeah, I don’t see Bioware making a new Jade Empire either. Their masters EA won’t be keen on spending development time on a title that wasn’t a mega sales hit when they can push Bioware to churn out more Mass Effects and Dragon Ages.

    1. Bioware is working on a new IP, but won’t say what it is. As far as Jade Empire goes Bioware hasn’t completely given up on it. There is still support for the game amongst them. They just said they don’t have the time to make one right now because of Mass Effect and Dragon Age. Hopefully after the latest games they have coming out they’ll go back to some of their older titles.

    1. I wouldn’t say Mass Effect is played out to me since it’s my favorite game trilogy of all time. Mass Effect 2 is my favorite game of all time, but I wouldn’t mind if Bioware stopped making them for a few years and focused on some of their other games like Baldur’s Gate and Jade Empire. Of course that will never happen, but one can dream right :].
