Summary: If you enjoy point, click, and match games with other various mini games and/or love games that involve the famous crime-busting extraordinaire Nancy Drew then you'll enjoy the game as much as I did. This game had good graphics, good voice acting, interesting mini games, and fun puzzles. The only thing that made this game lose its star was the plot, which was fairly good but not great.
Summary: I love any Nancy Drew game available they are my addiction in life and the Nancy Drew Dossier Lights, Cameras, and Curses is absolutely awesome I love it. And it is so challenging it will definietly keep you on your toes..lol you gotta get it.
Short and repetitive, but still worth checking out

Summary: I've been playing the Nancy Drew Adventure series for some time, so I was skeptical when Her Interactive released this new series in a different format. The demo didn't catch my interest the first time I played it, but a few years down the line, I decided to give this game another shot and make the purchase. This game still has some of the charm and fun that has made the Nancy Drew Adventure games so popular, but it has at least two major downsides.
Summary: Please note this is not the same as the full-blown Nancy Drew games. I really enjoy those but they take me forever, unless I cheat a lot (read hints online). I checked online for hints for this before I started, anticipating needing them. I couldn't find any, but I didn't end up needing them anyway. This game walks you through the process from the very beginning, and I only got stuck a couple times for just a few minutes.
Summary: This game represents a new line of Nancy Drew games. Though not a typical hidden object game, it is also not a typical Nancy Drew mystery-adventure game. First of all, the game has minimal animation, but is made up of flat, 2-D settings. Except for some characters' dialog lines, movement is depicted by placing an object (like a car or a cat) into different spots around the setting. Second, each discovered hidden item has a purpose.
Summary: I have a lot of the games in the Nancy Drew series, and I often just pick them up when I see one I haven't played yet. Such was the case with this one, and I didn't notice until after I had installed it that it isn't one of the normal RPG style games that is typical of the series. It's a hidden object game. can't stand hidden object games, so I was a little pissed. But I figured whatever, I can't return it now, so I played it. And to my surprise, it was actually fun.
Summary: Nancy Drew Dossier: Light, Camera, Curses! Got to be one of the best nancy drew games out there. As soon as I was done I passed it on to my Sister, "a collecter of the Nancy Drew games" She called me back and said, She Loved It! Great sound, animation, and all around great game.
Summary: Have been a long time fan of Nacy Drew games and have almost all of them. I guess the Dossier ones are more kid oriented, and I was disappointed. Yet on the same note, some of the scenes were almost impossible to get through, like the one with the crows. I wouldn't purchase anything else that has Dossier on it.
Summary: Wow lots of people giving this game a 4 or 5 stars which I personally feel it didn't deserve. Maybe I'm not a Nancy Drew fan. I found the gameplay so-so. The graphics are average and storyline average as well. Nothing special or exciting that makes me wanna continue further. There's too much talking and it bored me to death. I hate games that have too much info/conversation to read or listen to because it takes away the fun of the game.
Summary: My very first encounter with Nancy took place in Venice for an epic hunt-down of a cunning Phantom. A memorable experience, to say the least, which, just after completion, tickled my fancy for a lot more thrills. "Lights, Camera, Curses" gave me just that. A Nancy Drew investigation is not a real HOG although you have to find items. No list, no silhouettes, just clues as to what you must search.
