Summary: Not as great as many others in the series. Felt as if you weren't discovering any of this for yourself, but like you're doing a set of tasks in exact order. If you miss something it's hard to find. I just didn't enjoy it very much.
Summary: This is my seventh review and completed adventure in the Nancy Drew series. First, I'd like to start by dividing my review into two factions. 1) The game itself 2) My personal detective work. * PART 1 * PLOT: There was a lot of fervor with the magical 25th Nancy Drew edition game and it marked a milestone in its franchises' history. Pretty bold showing the place where Nancy grew up and I think a lot of fans were digging that aspect.
Summary: I'm so disappointed! Here I've been anxiously awaiting the new game, and it is terrible. I loved reading the ND books as a young girl, and as an adult have purchased and played every single Nancy Drew game, enjoying most of them immensly. This brand new game ranks in the bottom five. I really hate switching between characters. Beth is stupid and childish, and the dialogue with just about all the suspects is tiresome and boring.
Summary: I've played every Nancy Drew game by HerInteractive (26 and counting) and found Alibi in Ashes to be the weakest. The puzzles are lacking, character development is sparse and found the switching characters aspect to be tedious detract from the game. The game is short - I finished it in less than 5 hours and found that it didn't require the same puzzle solving skills that other games in the series require. Hope the next one is better!
