Music recommendation: Jade Empire (oriental)

Published on

Cover art for the Jade Empire soundtrack

While the soundtrack of Jade Empire is sadly one of few readily available soundtracks from games with an oriental setting, it’s useful enough that it might just be the only one you need. The calmer tracks draw heavily from Chinese aesthetics while the most dramatic tracks are closer to traditional orchestral arrangements. There are 31 tracks in total, and many of them are uniform enough to be useful without any editing.
