Thanks for your reviews that helped me decide & thanks BF for cancer research promotion.

Wishing you the best outcome of your DX and anticipated treatments. I've just had a recent experience and surgery and so far so good with healing. BUT not so good with as you say concentration, energy with so much on the mind. That's why this month I've tried to focus on lowenergy brain games. Easy and fun to pass the downtime (mostly around the clock I've been down, horizontal). I've enjoyed in participating with the threads for DDs for research and doing trials.

Good time to stock up for games during recovery if you can. My understanding and prayers are for you.

As always, thank you so much to all those who jump in and review these DD's immediately. I don't buy games unless they have the "stamp of approval" from the players.

I'm not a "romance" fan AT ALL. I bought this DD specifically because players kept referring to the sex and kink factors! Sex and kink I can handle--schmoop makes me gag.

This is quite a unique story and game. I really like the cutscenes (they remind me of the "Kill Bill" cutscenes) and the voice acting (which I usually find cloying/annoying). Hari is a hunka chunka burnin' eye candy and quite to my surprise I actually like Delilah. The animators did a fantastic job, especially with the action scenes and facial expressions.

Having said all that, the hidden object scenes are a nightmare for the visually impaired like myself. I'm not a big fan of puzzles, but challenged myself to try to figure them out (without much success). I've had to depend heavily on the Walkthrough (eternal thanks to those who create them).

I hope the developers will note the input/feedback of players and improve the quality of the hidden object scenes in the sequel, which is a definite BUY for me.

LOVE this game. For the first time, I actually love the story. Having a seven foot tiger/man warrior running around in his underwear might have something to do with it. Yes, I am hot for an animated character is a computer game. Embarrassing but true.

The puzzles are good and challenging. The graphics good for what they are and voice overs are excellent.

The only downside is the hidden object part verges on the impossible, in some cases. Had to turn off the lights in the room to get the best possible view of the computer screen and still needed to use the help button on occasion.

Never the less, I highly recommend this game..for the story and for the unique way you play.

I nearly screamed when I hit the 'To be continued' ending. There was swearing, too. ;-)
