    Game Title: Jade Dynasty
    Genres: 3D, MMORPG, Fantasy
    Publisher: Perfect World International
    Official Site: http://jd.perfectworld.com/
    Area: NA

    Jade Dynasty is a 3D Asian fantasy MMORPG with a martial arts theme, based on the popular chinese love story novel in a superb game engine, concept and 3D graphics. The game has been well-received among domestic online game players since its launch in May 2007.

    Story: I didn’t really pay much attention to the story, but its basically you going around to do some minor quests and eventually hitting lvl 15 to do a quest to join a clan. You have to do the quests in order for the next ones to appear otherwise you can’t progress.

    Graphic: The graphics are pretty good. There are nice visual effects, much of the geography and mythical monsters in Jade Dynasty are based on Chinese legend which gives the game a unique feel. It’s a full 3D graphics game, but even some low-end computer specs can handle this game.

    Gameplay: If you’ve played Perfect World, you’ve probably played this game as well. The game is set up in the exact same way so that if you’ve played any of their previous games before, you can just jump right in and start killing. There are two unique features: Full 3D Pathing System and Flying Weapons maybe interest you.

    » Full 3D Pathing System
    The path finding system in the game is very nice. You can open up a transparent map, click on where you want to go, and your character will immediately start running to the location using the shortest route possible. Its very good for getting around places and you don’t want to having to deal with running all the way to the other side of the map manually.

    » Flying Weapons
    In traditional Chinese martial art myths, flying a sword is the ultimate sign of a powerful warrior. Jade Dynasty: Journey to Immortality brings this fantasy alive in the game.

    Talisman Crafting is another good point in game. Talismans give you new skills and boost your stats. If you have a matching set of 2 or 3 talismans, they boost each other’s stats and provide greater bonuses. You can level up some talismans by using the skills corresponding to the talisman. Its basically a way to force players to skill grind. Healers have no problem with this since they can keep casting it, but fighter classes have to spam it on mobs to level it up.

    Overall: Though it’s still on its open beta test, It has enough to keep it from being a bad game. The game creators need to improve on the design to make it as an outstanding game, but still, it is worth checking out, the final decision will come from the gamers decision.

    nice graphics and nice in-game features like 3d pathing system and flying weapons.

    hope you will post another screen shots of the game..

    uhm i noticed that it looks like a perfect world and i guess it would be a good idea that you must do the quest in order for the other quest to be opened and to avoid too much grinding?.. well i guess this is a really a good one too ^^
