so you have to switch between all the characters and talk to all the citizens and it just gets tedious sometimes. It is especial

Summary: I'm a huge Nancy Drew fan, but I can't say I'm a huge fan of this game. The majority of the time is just talking. Each character says different things to Nancy and her friends, so you have to switch between all the characters and talk to all the citizens and it just gets tedious sometimes.
Summary: Soooo yes. I'm an adult who loves playing the Nancy Drew games as I find they are the perfect way to unwind on the weekends, and they provide a good challenge. I've played almost all of them, and found Alibi in Ashes to almost be at the bottom of the list for fun.
So-so, not my favorite, but not the worst, either.

Summary: This game is fun, but it's pretty short. The twist of Nancy being held up at the police station and her friends having to do the investigating is unique and fun to do. I felt like the plot was a little flat in this game, with most people's motives for being the arsonist simply being disliking Nancy.
Summary: This game looked like it would be one of the best, but the map of the town is misleading. You don't get to go to many places highlighted at all, so I don't know why they made us think we could. Going back and forth between players got very tiresome, but the game still moderately enjoyable.
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.
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.
