[Game] Jade Cocoon

Jade_CocoonA ghibli-eque story seemingly inspired by ancient near eastern nomad mythology of all things. Never thought I’d find a gem like this among stuff that this obsolete.

And what’s with that translation quality? I thought psx games were supposed to get butchered, but the English in this one reads even better than the original Japanese.

Positive: Negative:
Beautiful artwork Outdated, fugly 3D visuals
Very interesting setting inspired by ancient creation stories that even, in a way, found their way to the Bible Predictable plot
Likable characters Game-play is simplistic and gets old fast
Good English voice-acting (?) Incredibly awkward movement controls
Incredibly good English translation (??)
