    The uncanny shortage of "Diablo" fans with an interest in the obscurities of Chinese history probably limits the game's appeal. [Nov 2002, p.87]
  2. A mediocre game -- but in a good way. It’s got some problems that are patchable, but the pacing is good and there’s always a quest to go on.
  3. The graphical elements need some help and the dialogue is overwritten and overacted.
  4. 68
    Control of your characters could've been tighter, and the AI could've been a little more intelligent in battle situations.
  5. A decidedly awkward English translation, some lackluster production values, and a poorly implemented multiplayer mode all prevent it from having the same appeal as the games that influenced it.
  6. The mold is nothing but restrictive, choking off a good idea with subpar graphics and a general feel of incompleteness. This idea deserved better.

    For every potentially cool element in Prince of Qin, there's a worse one waiting to kneecap it. [Jan 2003, p.124]

I played it online years ago and the stand alone mode is also fun. I would not compare it to modern games as far as depth goes but this is an overlooked and under rated classic! It will be in my collection for some time along with more popular games. It reminds me a bit of the Dungeon Siege series but predates them. Expand

The game is set ancient china and the player will play as a cast out prince who tries to find out the conspiracies behind an empire. there are lots of side quests and lots of story line. Don't play unless you like to take your time because this game is lengthy. The game is played more like dungeon siege but overall experience is more like neverwinter nights since it does have strong characterization and quite a lot dialogue. Also you will find that there is no real structure in the game so you kind of wander around a bit. Personally, I like that it seems more realistic and more freedom. Story line pretty cheesy and reminds me of a dungeon siege 1, but cheese can be OK sometimes. Also I personally like its ancient China setting, another game from Bioware called Jade Empire has a similar setting but overall this game has more depth on role playing aspects. Expand
