Designed by Michel Ancel of ''VideoGame/{{Rayman}}'' fame, the game plays like a SciFi twist on ''Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda''. It combines simple yet engaging combat, with vehicle action, puzzle solving, stealth, and photography challenges. The environments are detailed and beautiful, the characters are interesting and well-animated, in a stylized balance of cartoonish and realistic. It was released for UsefulNotes/IBMPersonalComputer, {{Xbox}}, PS2, and [[UsefulNotes/NintendoGameCube GameCube]], but sold few copies on any platform.

* ActionGirl
** ActionMom: ''Adoptive'' mother, but it still counts--especially given that Jade's need to provide for her kids is what catapaults her into the story in the first place.

* SceneryPorn: Lots of it.
* SchizoTech[=/=]AnachronismStew: The game's setting is... eclectic, to say the least, with elements from past, present, and future. There's a still-functioning lighthouse, most buildings are made from stone, pictures are stored on film, travel is commonly done by boat or hovercraft, the lighthouse doubles as a shield projector, and the flying cars resemble modern-day cars without wheels.

* SimpleStaff: Jade's choice, as a martial arts master.



* {{Uncancelled}}: Everyone thought that poor sales of the first title pretty much doomed the game to being a one-shot: up till Ubisoft dropped the trailer for the sequel out of nowhere.

** FrickinLaserBeams: The Alphas' hammers can sometimes shoot these.
** BeamSpam: Jade's "super attack" is somewhere between this and a MacrossMissileMassacre.
*** This particular attack could be considered a GameBreaker to some, though it depends.

* ShockwaveStomp: This is the first part of the team attack--your partner creates a shockwave, sending all ground-bound enemies into the air. (The second half involves you attacking them, which allows you to throw them into the wall/an arc of electricity/another enemy/a bridge that needs knocked down/materia crystals.)
