I downloaded the trial, all excited that a new Big City game had arrived, but didn't even finish trial version. Items were hard to find and it was just basically boring. I agree with other reviewers - this is the worst one yet - don't bother wasting your time or money.

(played on relaxing mode) I was disappointed in the graphics in this game and many things were just too difficult to find. I ended up playing the whole game which is something I never do when I give such a low rating. I ended up just clicking all over the boards because it was too hard to find the items. I also felt like they made Tokyo sound boring if that is all they could come up with on their narrative. I felt the same way about London, it was also extremely boring. I have purchased all the games except for Paris and that would probably bore me also. When the games first came out they did a much better job, this is one I won't be replaying.
Who is the intended audience for this game? The mini puzzles are children simple. The HO scenes include an overwhelming amount of stuff that blends together and items on the list that are simply miniature icons within a section of many other miniature icons. Perhaps others play on really large monitors and have no issues with finding the objects (mine is not real small). I do appreciate that the development team put a lot of work into this game. I have reached my own level of not having fun and will rid myself of the frustration before moving on to the 4th location in the game..
Big City Adventures Tokyo is another awesome game in this series. I played the hour free trial then I bought this game. As in the other Big City Adventure games, some objects are very easy to find, other objects are more difficult to find, especially for folks like me who are senior citizens and are becoming somewhat color blind. There are some objects that blend into the background so are impossible for me to find. This is ok because that's what hints are for. Because of my vision problems that are contributed to me getting older, I have to play the relaxed version rather than the timed version. If I have to use up all my hints before I find the remaining objects, I start over using a different name such as my first name or Mom or Granny. The mini games I find to be rather easy at first then progressively get a bit more difficult & challenging. I like to be mentally challenged. I love Big City Adventure games because you don't have to go back and forth from one scene to another then back to a previous scene several times. Finish one scene then go to a different location. If you enjoy HOG games, and you enjoy the other games in this series, you're going to love Big City Adventures Tokyo.
I have all the Big City Adventures but found this trial a bit hard at times and easy other times. I did not buy this game. I liked the games in between the play but mostly lost interest when I just couldn't find the items and had to use my hints. I think this one is harder than the rest of them.

Usually I enjoy the Big City Adventure games, but this one has put me off. Some of the hidden objects are really hard to find. I have used the clues more in this game than in any other Big City game before. I am really rather disappointed.

Like many other reviewers, I have played several Big City Adventure games over the years. Some, like Vancouver, I liked a lot. This one I didn't much like at all. The graphics here are not crisp, and it's just about impossible to find some of the items without using the hint button. The narrations seemed very canned, and the mini games were so easy they were boring. I have no intention of finishing this one, and I certainly can't recommend it to others. Too bad.
This franchise has gone downhill over the years, and this particular version is the worst. The HO scenes are too busy, on many occasions the objects are so buried as to be impossible to locate, the mini-games are ridiculously simple, the objects in the hidden scenes are very tiny and hard to see, the list goes on. Save yourself the money and don't buy this.

I disagree with the negative reviews. I also play many of the Big City Adventure series and found Tokyo to be a bit more of a challenge than the others, which makes it more fun. Although some of the hidden objects and puzzles may seem too easy at first, the busy and complex Asian art style graphics in some of the scenes are very complex and I really have to work at finding hidden objects without using any hints...a self-challenge I enjoy! I often need to use deductive reasoning to figure them out instead of just random scanning. I admit, I don't pay much attention to story lines (much too childish), but I did learn a lot about Tokyo and Japanese culture from the narrative. And, the extra puzzles are diverse and fun. They may seem waaaay easy at first, but become progressively more challenging. I consider them "time out" from the hidden object workout, and they eventually take on a challenge of their own. This game has something for everyone: a bit of easy-play for kids, as well as a workout for big guys! In short...I love Tokyo Big City Adventure and I think the nay-sayers should give it another shot. Gets better as it goes! Looking forward to more like it.
