I have been thinking about getting these games.
But there is one thing I want to know.
I know these deal some with relationships, so for those who have played these, how would you rate them (in your opinion) on the ESRB scale?
(Early Childhood, Everyone, Teen, Mature, Adults Only)
If you know a different rating system that's fine too.

both CD-ROMS were perfectly designed - with loads of ideas, stuff to play around for the simple fan and of course with infos about PG, his projects and his music:
1.) "XPLORA 1" was designed around the album "Us" - it was the time when Peter was touring to promote the album (1993/94) - many people and critics now would compare the CD-ROM with a well-designed web-site. You were able to view the clips for "Us", to play various instruments from all over the globe, get some info about WOMAD and Real World, doing some mixes of "Digging in the Dirt", walk around Peter`s studios in Box plus a little insight to the project, which became the "BIg Blue Ball"-album half a million years later. Getting backstage passes to the Grammy- and Brit-award-show `93 and so on.
2.) "EVE" was a JEWEL.
Breathtaking computer graphics - a lot of stuff to play around. "An interactive songbook" in Peter`s words.
there were 4 worlds:
1. "a world of MUD" with artwork by Yayoi Kusama (Japan)
2. "the GARDEN" with artwork by Helen Chadwick (UK)
3. "the INDUSTRIAL world" with artwork by Cathy de Moncheax (Quebec or France)
4. "PARADISE" with artwork by Nils Udo (Germany)
The songs featured were "COME TALK TO ME", "SHAKING THE TREE", "IN YOUR EYES" and "OF THESE HOPE" from "PAssion".
Many, many scientists, artists, psychologists etc. were involved in this project. . .
You were ADAM and you had to find your EVE, if I remember it right - just like in real life :-] :-] :-]

I still somehow managed to save both of these CD-ROMS. Unfortunately, they cannot be played on modern computers. There was a thread in the last year abut someone who bought a computer made ca 1995 and the games still didn't work.
Eve was beyond words. Parts of it were like dreams coming true. (Then again, I've been told I have weirder dreams than most people.) I hope someday EVE can be re-issued. It's deeply mourned.

Thanks, but you still didn't answer my question

Rating - PG13. Very brief nudity in both.

Thank You. I appreciate the answer, Rraven
If anyone has a different opinion please say so.

I don't know Xplora, but Eve - which really is a Jewel as Cimber said.
I would rate it on your scale as Mature.
Do you still have a computer which runs these games, lucky you
