Tiger Eye - Part I: Curse of the Riddle Box
WOW!!! What more can I say?
Exciting, romantic, nice graphics and a great story line.
I can't wait for the sequel.

Once was enough
I didn't like this game much. Felt it was too heavy on the mush and unfortunately, no skip for the dramas in between. I could barely wait for the end and was glad when it did.

Half a game
I don't mean it's short, but it ends in a cliffhanger, and you have to buy the sequel in order to finish the story. Such as it is. A previous reviewer called it sticky and cloying, and I have to agree. I don't mind a good love story, but this was over the top sentimental.
What I did like about the story was the setting (China), the lack of junk piles, and the mini-games. Too many mini-games for my taste, but they were good, and stretched my brain a bit.
So I suppose I'll spend my voucher on the sequel, and play to the end. And try not to gag when the main characters stare at each other idiotically, and talk about shape-shifter kisses, which apparently are much superior to the human variety. Eeeeeuuuu.

If you want the rest of the story...
Tiger Eye: The Sacrifice does continue this story, but with less interaction between Hari and Dela. It does have a satisfying conclusion, and both games follow the book fairly well. If you'd like to know the whole story, however (with a LOT more details--nudge, nudge, wink-wink), read the book by Marjorie M. Liu entitled just Tiger Eye. It covers both games. This was her first novel, but she's written several more in this series, although the main characters are different. I loved both games, but truly enjoyed the book and highly recommend it.

Another mushy sheila's game
This games promo advertised the fact that it had romantic overtones but at the start this was not at all evident. You have to help Dela solve the puzzles of an accient riddle box that had imprisoned a 7 foot warrior for 2000 years and overcome various attempts to thwart her gaining the big fellas freedom. This game contains lots of character voice overs and written dialogue as well. It was only in about the middle of the game when things started getting really mushy. All this reading about smoochy stuff is for the shelias it is not my type of game. I have written this review without having completing the game because it has started to turn me right off. I may go on and finish it at a later date. The graphics are not that clear and are a bit hazy but most of the drawings are fairly well distinguishable. This makes most of the hidden objects quite difficult to find in the shadows. The puzzles require some thought but you can buy hints if and when they are needed. Started off o.k. but then deteriated rather rapidly.

If you like the book.. STAY AWAY!!!
When I first saw that there was a game made from one of my favorite books I was beyond excited! Then I started playing them.. I could barely make it through the games. Characters were missing, the storyline was all wrong.. Some of the book was followed.. But 99% wasn't. I figured it was probably just someones take on the book.. I was wrong.. I was very disappointed when I found out the author of the book "wrote" the game. If you are a fan of the book I don't recommend wasting your money on this. If you have never read the book the game could be fun for you.

This game has much to recommend it and just about as much that is disappointing.
I enjoyed the puzzles. They are challenging, varied and plentiful. The HO scenes are also challenging and different than most. The music was unobtrusive and soothing.
Now we come to my real complaints. This game was one that I thought a kid could play without being freaked out by werewolves or ghosts, etc. Wrong. The comic book style graphics and choppy action weren't all that great (or to my taste, I should sayk) and the story gets "mushy" way too fast. Also, be prepared for a continuance because the game just leaves you hanging.
The last disappointment was the extra levels that you could open up if you gathered enough PSI points. Not worth it!
All this said, I'd still recommend it.

not my kind of game
i like a game that is relaxing and not too hard. this one is hard as far as i am concerned because it is kind of hard on the eyes. maybe because of my eyes but i uploaded after about 2 rounds. wasn't interested enough to continue and strain my eyes.

Engrossing, lengthily story, a variety of mini games and some hidden object scenes made for a really enjoyable game. I had no problem completing the game, but if you need help, you can have lots of hints by doing the bonus rounds which involved quickly matching 2 or 3 of a kind. Hints help you with mini games, but you can also skip them if you like.
