    It's finally here! One of the best damn rpgs has finally released on android. If you love the mass effect or kotr series then get this game asap. This game is still one of my top 10 rpgs of all time. Great combat system and storyline. Controls are perfect for mobile, it also supports gamepads. Graphics are still good enough by today's standards. Do yourself a favor and get this damn game! Thanks for making this go mobile...my days at work are now complete lol Full Review

    Great port of an all time classic Looks and plays way better than I expected. Since you have mastered porting last gen Bioware games, PLEASE PORT MASS EFFECT NEXT!! Did find a bug though: With battery optimization OFF, the game drains when it's not running at about 3%/hr. However game runs at 60fps even with optimization ON so no biggie. -Note5 Full Review

    Incredible Turn off light bloom and shadows and you'll never have a problem with performance. KOTOR gets all the nostalgia but Jade Empire was the true hero - better writing, better characters, a better plot. This was one of the very best games for the original Xbox. Best played with "expert" controls. Addictive, replayable, absolutely memorable. Ten bucks is not much to ask for one of Bioware's very best. Full Review

    I am surprised to see that Jade Empire is not receiving a high rating similar to the other popular BioWare franchise KOTOR in the Google Play store! I downloaded them and they are both classics in gaming history! Nevertheless, Jade Empire is better looking and the gameplay is more intuitive. It feels more like a more modern RPG game! There are no voice-over bugs in this game and the controls are clunky just like KOTOR on Android. This game is truly epic and it deserves a better rating! I cannot wait so see more upcoming classics from BioWare on Android... Maybe, Neverwinter Knights or perhaps Mass Effect? Just saying... 😉 Full Review

    Still amazing! I love this game so damn much! It's one my favorite games & has got to be one of the best games on the original Xbox, right up there with KOTOR. Beautiful in every way & running just fine on my GS7 Active. The touchscreen controls work great, although it would be much better/easier with a controller. It would be great if the devs could implement some permission or something to keep the screen on whilst playing. It kinda sucks to have to skip dialog/cutscenes because I have to tap the screen to keep it on. Full Review

    Fantastic game that was not afraid to experiment and take chances. This game was made by a fantastic team. Not sure if a game like this could be made again today under the strict supervision of todays large scale publishers that only want to crunch numbers and tick boxes on a spreadsheet. (Multiplayer - check etc) Full Review

    Just as good as I remembered it! I know I'm in for hour of great story and action. The control needs a bit of fine tuning. extra: completed the game at just under 18 hours and I'm ready for a second and third run. The only issue I had was that a conversation menu didn't load and that was easily solved with a "reset". Full Review

    Controller not working Edited. Game is fantastic except that my Bluetooth controller isn't working! I have a new Xbox controller that is Bluetooth and the only button that is mapped is select. I tested this on the KOTOR port and the controller works perfectly. Please update! Recently tried a different controller and it is the same situation. Nothing for JE, perfect controls on KOTOR. Phone is an LG G5, have had no problems with any Bluetooth connections before. Full Review

    Just Fantastic! One of my favorite Xbox/PC games of all time. So strange just days ago I was talking about how I missed this game and wished someone would port it to PS4. But here it is on my phone and better than ever. I only wish KOTOR ran as smoothly as this game does. Zero problems. Full Review

    Great. As far as a port goes it's well done. This game is one that I'll definitely come back to and I never played it before this port. Definitely better than Andromeda. Edit: with the new os update the game no longer starts up, unfortunate really but what will ya do? Full Review

    Jaymeanddon Worthingtonclarke Published date: February 17, 2017

    The Good: absolutely top-notch game on the Xbox, nearly as good on a tablet. Graphics are impressive and the load times on my Ellipsis 8 are shorter than on the Xbox original. Massive replayability and just plain enjoyable to play. The Bad: controls are great, not perfect. It will let you spend two hours downloading it just to fail at the end of the download, after you've already paid! Also, I gave Aspyr a whole star off for not allowing the refund button. Makes you look pretty shady. Full Review

    I remember playing this game when it first came out on the first Xbox wow it was soo much fun I must've beaten the game a good 20 times. And now I'm still playing it this game has never gotten old to me. This game is still, to this day my favorite rpg. Well this game and the mass effect games and the dragon age games. Bioware makes the best RPG games Full Review

    For those who have lag... If you're experiencing lag, turn off shadows in the video settings. The shadows are what is causing slowdown for some people. As far as my views on the game, it's fantastic port, just like their other ports for mobile. Aspyr are kings of smooth ports. Their kotor port is considered one of the best games for mobile. Their port of jade empire is great. Smooth controls, great port. Full Review

    Ryan Cox Published date: January 1, 2017

    It's great in every respect but one... I like everything about this game except for the difficulty in switching targets, especially in areas like the imperial engagement. Having your target unexpectedly switch in a group battle and be VERY hard to switch back really sucks. Supposedly you can tap a different target and switch, but in reality this only works like one out of five tries. If they would fix that, it's definitely worth the money and five stars. Full Review

    I love Jade Empire, but unfortunately I've tried to play this version on two devices now and neither have worked. The game doesn't even load on Xperia XZ, and on the Galaxy S8 that I'm now using, it loads fine and seems to play the game no problem, but the screen constantly flickers making it completely unplayable. I've tried tweaking video settings, even going so far as to turn off every single opt optional feature, but the flicker just doesn't stop. Sadly, it's a 1 star for now. If S8 support is ever added, I'll gladly change to a 5 star, because this truly is an amazing game that I would LOVE to play on the go Full Review

    Oleg Published date: March 29, 2017

    One of my favourite PC games in its time, the port is solid, but the touch controls render it near-unplayable sometimes. When there are several enemies close to the protagonist, the target lock keeps changing seemingly at random without my conscious input, preventing me from focusing particular foes. Very frustrating.

    Preston Waller Published date: November 2, 2017

    There is a graphical bug that makes the game look very, very off. Like it's missing pixels or that they're off-colored. It starts at the Title Screen. I can only assume this is because I'm running it on an s8 plus. I spent 10 dollars on this and was really disappointed to see the graphics distorted. Full Review

    Jade Empire as we know and love it. Aspyr continues to knock it out of the park with this latest port. Playing on a Note 4, no controller. I have no problems playing the game, and I've sunk four hours into it already. Having a blast, it's just as I remember it. Way to go team! Full Review

    Had some issues downloading (for 1.5 weeks), but I solved it. Turns out if you have Android OS 7+ (no problems with OS 6 range) it has difficulty with some Wi-Fi routers when downloading larger files. I sent my findings to Aspyr and Google. Awesome game. Full Review

    Update: Now that i can play it after discovering my last device was incompatible, even though i could download it... I love it, the transition is impressive. I bought this again after that mishap cause i love this game. Its almost flawless accept the movement is a bit over sensitive. Can the font size be increased? Also does this have controller support?

    Dan Harrison Published date: June 4, 2017

    Great port of what I consider an overlooked masterpiece from BioWare. Mass Effect, Dragon Age and KOTOR rightly are regarded as classics but this game shouldn't be forgotten. Looks lovely, great storyline and dared to be a little different. Yes, there's a slight issue with the touch controls that makes combat a bit tricky (hence only 4 stars) but thats solved if you have a Bluetooth controller. To be fair it was always going to be more difficult to implement given the nature of the game compared to the more turn based nature of KOTOR. Top job folks Full Review

    David Cunningham Published date: April 29, 2017

    Great port, original bugs and glitches still there tho. The glitch where there gaurd stand in your way is still there. An easy fix by changing your video settings before the fight, still annoying tho since it's a known glitch that was in the original game that you guys could have fixed. Also the airship fights are very hard with a touch screen. Overall great game I recommend it Full Review

    I can't even start the game up without the app closing itself. Lots of flickering of the screen as soon I touch to start the app, click new game and straight after that the app will just close itself. Waste of money. I'm using an s8+ Full Review

    Lee Przybyl Published date: December 3, 2016

    Near perfect bioware If there's an enemy behind the attack buttons then it automatically targets them if u press them.. I suggest putting a boarder behind the attack buttons so the touch screen only recognizes the attack inputs. It just gets frustrating. Otherwise, it's on par with everything bioware does. Please solve this one flaw. Full Review

    Sean Petty Published date: December 16, 2016

    Amazing port I absolutely love this game, one of my all time favorites ever. Works well, only complaint that I have is the targeting seems to jump about at random sometimes. Large download being warned. I'll put at 5 stars if the targeting is improved. Full Review

    I loved the game but i can't finish it due to the game crashing after the loading screen to the palace. Much sad, very disappoint. I have 80 hours vested into this game going so far as to complete every little side mission only to not be able to finish the game. 0/5 will change my review if the problem is fixed or addressed.

    This is the real deal! It's the full Jade Empire game ported, justvas I remembered it! Immersing story, great controls, huge universe. Looking forward for Mass Effect port from the same guys. Check out their port for K.O.T.O.R., too! Full Review

    It is a great remastered version on the Xbox original classic I remember. The only tiff I have if is due to the touch controls being so weird to get used to since playing so much on the Xbox originally. But there is controller support. So recommend to pick one up. Full Review

    David Peterson Published date: January 17, 2018

    What a waste of effort releasing this on Android. If you're going to release a game close to the holidays, at the very least, make sure it runs on the shiny new devices running the newest Android OS everyone will be getting. What's worse, you JUST released it and already have a note up essentially saying, "Too bad Oreo users, ask for a refund". You suck as a company. Full Review

    Desmond Alloy Published date: October 29, 2017

    I am shocked to how well this game has aged. It's as dun as the day I first picked it up all those years ago. It funny, you have a habit of remastering and rereleasing games that should have had sequels and/or a similar tragic fate. *cough* Kotor *cough* Thank you. You're bringing back the only games I cared about in my childhood. Full Review

    Ethan Bartlett Published date: April 15, 2017

    Totally awesome game, super happy it's been ported. However the controls are very clunky, and controller support is very lacking. Controller support completely removes the area attack as there is no button assigned to it, and when using a ps3 controller it doesn't recognise the d-pad so I cannot change fighting styles. All this limits the game as usually I could play this on a hard difficulty but am limited to a lower difficulty as the controls are so clunky it makes fighting difficult. If these issues, or even just the controller support, where to be amended I would give a 5 star rating as the game itsself is awesome, but the controls leave it very lacking. Full Review

    PLEASE UPDATE THIS APP TO RESIZE CORRECTLY TO A SAMSUNG GALAXY S8+ AND DEX MODE!! I absolutely loved this game as a child and it never got the recognition it so desperately deserved. It was one the best games Ive ever played and barely anyone knew about. Possibly bad marketing anyway. Anyway I thought I would never be able to play it again after my Xbox crapped out almost a decade ago. I was ecstatic to see this brought back on a phone no less. Full Review

    Great port - with limitations Been playing for a couple of hours (Sony xperia z3) - so far running perfectly. Controls are a bit difficult to get used to, but as good as you have a right to expect for a touchscreen. Main thing to know is that the app takes up 3.6gb of internal storage and can't be moved to external storage - you will need to make a fair bit of space for this! Full Review

    This is an awful port of an exceptional game. I thought to myself that I would be able to play this game smoothly on a galaxy s8 but I get weird screen flickering and when I turn buffering effects of everything just lags and is unresponsive, due to that I can't actually rate the gameplay and controls, the graphics are brilliant; it's a shame I couldn't actually play it. Aspyr please fix. Full Review

    Frequent crashes hamper the fun I absolutely loved this game in Xbox and played it over and over. It's almost as good in mobile, though the controls feel a bit clunky. The main flaw is the frequent game crashes which hamper the fun and make you start fights over again all the time. I have an S7 which should be able to handle this, yet I keep having the same issue.

    Unfortunately it's unplayable, even if you turn off all visual enhancements, it crashes constantly and I'm not able to even choose a main char. I want to love this port, and I sure do love these Bioware games (played them all long ago on the pc), however at it's current state, playing is impossible. Here's hoping the team will fix these issues. Full Review

    I'm getting really irritated with Google Play. They give you instructions on how to get a refund. I'm going exactly what they instruct, but no matter what I try this is not an option for me to report a problem or request a refund. This app will not work on my phone even though Google Play tells me that it's compatible. Refund my money back to me! Full Review
