Reviews and Problems with Nancy Drew Alibi in Ashes
Showing 1-6 of 6
I goofed up on the content of the item for the age I bought it for
6 June 2013
Summary: The product was okay but I went forward without doing enough research on the age and substance of the game. My grandbaby is only 7 years old and I have not watched the game but it does talk about the boy girl stuff which we are not pushing on her at this age. So this is the only time on ebay that I was disappointed. But I may sell it on ebay and someone can get some use of it since it is new and unwrapped.
Summary: I've played nearly every Nancy Drew game out there, and this one ranks somewhere near the bottom. It's not necessarily bad; it's just... forgettable. That being said, I'd buy it all over again because even a so-so Nancy Drew mystery is pretty darn fun. What I liked: - GRAPHICS: Nancy's house is beautiful. The characters are very detailed. I enjoyed poking around the various locations. PUZZLES: They weren't too difficult, but were still challenging enough to reel me in.
Summary: I am in high school, and I have been playing the Nancy Drew games since I was eight. I have played the whole Nancy Drew series, except for the original "Secrets Can Kill" and "Stay Tuned for Danger". I was mostly satisfied with this product. For the most part, the game-play was interesting, the dialogue was clever, and the puzzles were intriguing and pretty difficult. But, something was missing in this Nancy Drew game.
Summary: I bought this because my 9 year old son and I have played about ten other Nancy Drew PC games that we have loved! I was disappointed in this one. I didn't really like having to change in to numerous other people to work on the case. I also missed some of the little games that you have to play in the others (like Phantom of Venice). There were a few of those in this game, but they weren't as involved or fun.
Summary: People have been pretty harsh so far, probably because HerInteractive have set themselves SUCH a high standard, and this game doesn't compare as well to others in the series. It does have some positives. I personally didn't find the character switching that bad, although having to go through Nancy to swap from Ned to Bess was frustrating. It was nice to see River Heights, would've loved to see more. Nancy's house is just amazing. I welcomed the auto driving this time!
Summary: This is probably one of my least favorite Nancy Drew games, and I've played them all. The puzzles are very easy. A lot of them can be completed by just pushing random buttons until you get it right. Previous games had tons of puzzles that involved a lot of work and the use of notes to keep track of everything. I didn't need to use a notebook at all for this game. That was probably the most disappointing part.
