Poor in many areas.

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: 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!
