There's a tool that looks like a hoe only larger without the curve in the metal and is on a long wooden handle. Works perfectly for sliding under tile and breaks up easily. When the edge feels dull from overuse, just resharpen and the work goes smoothly.

Rent a wallpaper steamer from your local rental store. Set the steamer on the tile for about 10 seconds. Use a putty knife to get under a corner and then you can start pulling it up.

You may have to reposition the steamer as you go to get the tile in one piece. But then the fun really begins trying to get the adhesive up.
