Finished Jade Empire

Wow, what a great game! I just finished Jade Empire in "evil mode". I'm very likely to do it again in "boy scout" mode. The immersion and richness of the universe are just amazing. The only thing I disliked is the tendancy Bioware has to explain to us that the evil path is somewhat as honorable as the virtuous one. I enjoy playing an evil character (I know the subtle difference between game and reality as almost every other gamer on the planet), but don't try to tell me that he's not evil. Some of the things they make you do in this mode are actually quite disturbing. I'm still waiting for the (good) game that will let you play a Dr. Evil-like character: evil, but in a funny way. Yes, Dungeon Keeper did that in a way, but that was a long time ago.

By the way, looking back in time, the quality of a game does not seem to be dependant on its technical sophistication. My favorite games stood the test of time quite well and are still enjoyable today. They are:

    I tried Jade one time ... and I was killed by a bomb from a boat ... never tried again ;) The CD is still beside the xbox I like Soul Calibur 2 pretty much as I can fight with my girl friend! But the game where I spent most of my gamer time was on Starcraft, in multi player mode.

    Sébastien: that's a pity, that's just the very beginning of the game. This fight is a little too hard at this point, I agree, but the bombs are easily avoided, and what awaits you after that is just awesome. You should try again...
