Legends of the East: The Cobra's Eye Collector's Edition
Lots of tasks and hours of fun! Enjoyed it. Can we have the sequel? :)
After 6 hours of gaming, I've completed Legends of the East: The Cobra's Eye and I guess, during those 6 hours I must have completed a million tasks to help me get to Daniel and the gem. :)
The sheer number of tasks and puzzles made it one of the most heavily-loaded game I have played in a while. Each scene has around 6-7 tasks and then there are the HO scenes (to be played twice) and the puzzles.
It was worth it.
The game had abundant movies in between to take the story forward. Though I don't like interruptions during gameplay, I made an exception in this case as the movies had good content. :)
The developers should have tried livening up the characters some more. No lip movements? That was odd.
The voice-acting was terrific and was well-done. :)
The game may find it hard to match the production values of the top of the league titles.
But I'd strongly recommend that you give this one a shot to prove its mettle.
You might come home pleasantly surprised. :)
You just might love it like the way I did.
Can we expect a sequel soon?

Another great game
It is my practice to play every Collector Edition game offered and, in fact, I have bought almost every one of them. But not all of them are just right. Legend of the East is. I love games which are well done, have beautiful graphics and places to visit and just sparkle with fun. Legends of the East does.
I recommend it highly.

Just what I like!!
This game was perfect for me. The storyline was good, with some twists not expected. Though you did have to move around a bit much (no map to transport you) it wasn't too bad, and the transitions were very quick. It played well, and was a nice long game, but I kept playing because I wanted to see what happened next! The bonus chapter was well done,too. I liked that the hint button helped a lot!! HOS's were a bit easy, but it didn't distract from the game. Mini-games were good, too.
Overall I really enjoyed playing this one. Can't wait to see what they do next!

Just from the demo, I'm impressed. I would buy this game because, after a long wait for a thrilling game, I got the game which meets my expectation and it is simply outstanding.
For me, it was a visual treat with beautiful worlds and simple and challenging HOG's and puzzles.
You are 'Catherine' and you have to find Daniel and Antonio and you have to face some challenges.

Engaging Story; Loved the Characters and the Rich in-game Mythology!
I am not essentially what many would regard as an expert in hidden object games. But I?ve played a couple of these adventures and have been fascinated by them ever since I tried Dark Strokes: Sins of Our Fathers. ? I loved the storyline of that game and it?s something which I have always followed in every title that I have played since then ? the story and the characters.
Legends of the East: The Cobra?s Eye caught my attention because of the reviews that positively commented on these two aspects and after completing both the main game and the bonus game, I am pleased to note that this game has a story which someone should seriously consider making into a movie. :)
Vasco da Gama?s lost ship, a legendary artifact, an ancient lore, winged warriors from other worlds, a flying temple, enormous serpents, vigilantes, a resurrection angle, a redemption sidetrack ? the game has managed to add in loads of richness into its layers and it all seamlessly flows in to create the world of Legends of the East: The Cobra?s Eye.
You have these amazing characters who have distinguishing personalities. Catherine is slightly haughty. Yet we love her sense of humour even in the face of clear and present danger. Daniel started off as an irresponsible man (the kind who we are familiar with ;)) obsessed with his own goals, then we discover the more tender side of him and in the bonus adventure we also get see how he steps up to save the woman he loves. I loved the way the developers wound up everything, tying up all the loose strings so that by the time we sit back after completing the game, we feel a sense of closure.
Brownie points to the developers for what comes next! They have this line up of good-looking guys ? Daniel and Clive with their disarming charm and Antonio with his dignified demeanour! I also took a liking for Asgar ? the temple priest. ;) Oh...they should have shown us Victor?s face! I?m certain that he would have been quite an eyecandy! Loved his voice! :)
The villains are at the top of their game too. Am I the only one who is falling in love with Clive Crowe? :) He looks so much dashing! Looks like I am not the only admirer here. Happened to read the rave reviews for his looks elsewhere. :)
Complaints? I do have some.
The game could use some more polish. Seems like the developers were in a real hurry! :P
The Draugs could have been used a bit more effectively though rather than being just the henchmen. :)
I?d have loved to see what happened to Santiago instead of reading it up in the journal. They could have shown us a swashbuckling sea-battle! But I found myself really keen to know the backstory that I was checking the disc every now and then to see if the scene had any symbols. :P
The Bonus content was a bit less than what I had hoped for. I assume that?s being mentioned in a lot of reviews. Come on developers! Give us something more than the standard Gallery, Music and Bonus Levels.
On another note, I still have Clive gazing at me from my desktop. :)
Verdict: If you are someone who looks for interesting characters, an engaging and rich storyline and loads of gameplay, this game will satisfy you. It is a bit rough around the edges and slightly old-school, but you?ll forgive it all, as you?ll be completely hooked by the rest of the package.
Developers, Give us a sequel! With more bonus content! :)
And next time, can you bring back Clive? You can figure a way to bring him back. Can?t you? ;)

Ok this game was excellent in every catigory except for maybe voice overs since no ones mouth moved like some games I have played but as for the story, the length of the game, HOS's, mini games, graphics and all that were involved made this a fun and challenging yet enjoyable game. I look forward to more games like this one.

I study literature in uni and I found this game transcends most prose
I cannot fully express how riveting this story is and how riveting the animations and voice acting is. I thought the puzzles were challenging -- almost too challenging but in an enjoyable sense -- and I look forward to learning more about the lore in the sequel.

HIGH QUALITY GAMING!
I wasn't going to buy another BFG game for a long while until this new release!
Catherine is a strong-willed and determined woman. A great responsibility has been placed on her shoulders through Daniel, the man she loves.
Great acting and voices! Immediately fell in love with Daniel, Catherine and Antonio! Played Advanced Level. Deep, rich colors, spellbinding musical scores and lots to do in every scene! There is so much to the game and no annoying morphing objects! Yay!
Much prefer gameplay--hidden objects, puzzles, a mesmerizing plot, with an explosion of colors and talented artwork.
Journal is not too wordy and shows your objectives as well as an interesting storyline is depicted. Interactive Map shows active zones that is very helpful with so many scenes and so much to do. You are given a Cryptic Disk that scans scenes for needed symbols.
This truly heartfelt lovestory is packed with adventure, puzzles and fun gaming. Turn the volume up, the lights down low and enjoy!
MANY THANKS & WELCOME TO CHA YO WO GAMES!

What's not to love??
This review is based on playing the hour long demo. I love this game! Cobras, ghost armada, Vasco de Gama, an evil brotherhood, and a missing gem...not to mention a missing man and his worried girlfriend. This game has a detailed storyline and lots of documents to read, as well as a device for finding hidden clues. The hidden object scenes are well done, and the mini puzzles are fun, but it is the regular play of the game that is challenging and really held my interest. If you want an easy game with no snakes, don't buy this one!!
