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: 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.
Summary: I absolutely love this game! I'm about to play it for the 3rd time in a row... to try to get to the top rank... I love it that all the talking makes sense and is usefull to ND search. Voices are great too. Good job! I can't wait for the 3 "dossier"!
Summary: My first Nancy HO game. I'm not use to all the action required to locate objects and interact with them. You not only have to find HO, you have to think about what you should do with them or what to do next. I don't care for the scenes where you select the correct response. Could do without those scenes. If you want a challenge, this is the game for you.
Summary: I was a fan of Nancy Drew way way back in time, and this game captures her spunky spirit--you pick locks and snoop around. More than an HOG, you find objects and match them to others, in order to work your way through the mystery. Reminds me of Escape from the Museum, as you are directed each step of the way. The graphics are great, I liked the digital characters--very expressive for what they are--and the Egyptian/movie set theme.
Summary: This is great! It has the complexity (and replay value) of an adventure game, the point and click utility of a typical HO game, and very imaginative mini games (that can be solved). Just be sure your computer has sufficient memory available and you are off on a really fun adventure. I'm not always the best with the mini games, but even I could conquer these.
Summary: Lots of timed minigames. The Crows minigame requires an extremely quick memory and mouse finger. After about a dozen failures I'm about ready to give up. Graphics are not highly detailed, and many screens are too much murky brown and red for my taste. Game play is good, and different. Dialogue is fine. If there was a way to skip the Crows minigame I would give it a 3 or 4.
Summary: Either I am beginning to think like Nancy Drew or this was a tad bit easier than the one I am currently working on. This thick headed granny would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Nancy Drew and HOGs. Thumbs up.
