I'm surprised that there's not a Jade Empire thread going yet-is anyone else playing it? There have been a few mixed reviews so far, and I think that the reason a few people may have been a little disappointed is that the game is far less stat and equipment heavy than other RPGs. The game is really more akin to Fable than KOTOR. Really enjoying it though-it's definitely worth a look. It's amazing how much a little polish can do to a game as well. I noticed that a lot of the things I didn't like about KOTOR2 were technical glitches like the delays between switching menu pages, some long load times, and slowdown that could have been fixed with a little more time.
