Shaolin Mystery: Tale of the Jade Dragon Staff
Nice, relaxing game!
This is a very relaxing game. The graphics are beautiful, crisp. There is only one game mode. It has HO and FRO scenes. The puzzles are on the easy side but interesting to play. You have a task list. You interact with the characters so you know what to do next. There are 6 chapters in various locations. There is no map, but since the game is linear, you can't get lost. It took me 3 hours to finish, so for me a fair game length, worth the money. I had a good time playing it and will continue with the second "Shaolin Mystery"!

I started this game and didn't think I'd like it, but it turned out to be a fun day of adventure.
I'm a bit of a "maverick" where games are concerned because games with a 2 star rating occasionally interest me. I liked this game because it wasn't an extreme challenge. It had a great story, interesting settings and enough challenge to keep me "hooked"1

Good storyline, challenging puzzles.
You play Yu, a girl who discovers her long lost childhood friend is actually the rightful emperor. You must begin a journey to collect the pieces and restore the Jade Dragon Staff so that you can stop your friend from being executed by his deceitful uncle. Overall, a good game. I liked the story and the many of the puzzles were challenging. You had to think a little more in this game than some other similar types of games. Hint does take quite some time to fill. You will probably need it, at least a few times. I would recommend this game.

One of my favorites
I loved the music because it was kind of soothing, but it could have put me to sleep. So the sound quality was really nice. The storyline was okay, but I don't pay attention to them very much, I just play for the fun of the hunt. This wasn't one of the more challenging games I've played, but I still liked it. I just don't like having to go back and forth all the time just to get through a task.
All in all though, I liked it enough that now I'm going to buy it.

I really did not like this game at all. It really failed to generate interest from me.
I liked the hidden object scenes. I liked the challenge they presented.
Graphics were clear and well done.
Hint recharged fast
Would've liked to have seen a puzzle or two.
Should have been more Hidden Object Scenes. Only found 1.
Storyline is poor and doesn't hook you at all.
The game is a complete bore with nothing making me want to play on.
Didn't like the ring of objects needed to comlete a certain thing,
Would've prefered to play the game without tasks.
The music really annoyed me. It was repetitive and boring, so I just played it with the sound off.
This game failed to impress me. I can't see any reason to play it.

Good overall game and good length of play
While the story line for this game drug on a bit and the ending was a bit abrubt, it was a fun game with good graphics and puzzles. Liked the fact that it wasn't as "dark" as many other games and enjoyed the length of the game.

I HAVE NEW GLASSES AND STILL COULDN'T SEE.
First, the things I did like about the game; the HO scenes were easy to see, but had a good level of difficulty so that they held my interest. The story line was good and flowed well through the game.
What I didn't like about it was how small most of the items were that were not part of the HO scenes. The use of Chinese characters and pictures made it even more difficult to see them. The Hint's were just about worthless. Many times they said there was nothing else to do in that scene but when I had to check the walk-through to continue, there was still something left to do. And that is another thing I didn't like about this game; I had to refer to the walk-through way too many times for my liking. I don't mind having to go there once in awhile, but having to do it routinely is just frustrating. In order to check the walk-through, I have to completely exit the game because there was no way to minimize the screen. This takes way too much time and disrupts the flow of the game and goes hand in glove with the lack of accuracy in the Hints. I don't think the game was very well designed because of this.
