Summary: Let me begin by saying that I tried a "regular" Nancy Drew game first..."Warnings At Waverly Academy" and found those ND games to be extremely challenging! I LOVE her two Dossier games, however. This one is just fun. You get to help out at a spa and do facials. I love the HO aspects as well and all the matching. I would recommend the "Dossier" games to her younger and less ambitious fans who really can't handle the commitment of her regular mysteries!
Summary: "Nancy Drew:Resorting to Danger" is not like the traditional Nancy Drew games. It is a seek and find game, kind of like I Spy, except a little bit harder because you have to put two items together to get a result. This is what I thought of it: Story-The story is that the Redondo, a luxury spa for the wealthy and beautiful, has called you to come pose as the general assistant and find out who has been exploding bombs in the spa.
Summary: This was a fun game, but wasn't quite as fun as the usual Nancy Drews. Fairly good plot, functions of play were functional. Everything was scaled down and it played to quickly. But I do appreciate them making another game to get us ND junkies through until the next release of their bigger games :).
Summary: I'm a big Nancy Drew fan so I've played many games. This is not as challenging as the other games but anyone who has a tough time playing regular Nancy Drew games will like this one. There's directions on how to do the puzzles. This game only took me about 3 hours to complete which is ok because I sometimes like a shorter game when I'm short on time. Recommend!
Summary: Following in the footsteps of "Nancy Drew Dossier: Lights, Camera, Curses" is this seek and find adventure in which you locate various objects and combine them to perform a function, like using a pair of nail clippers to jimmy a door lock. The scenes are nicely hand-painted, but you have no freedom to move around and explore on your own. You are plunked into an area and you stay there until the tasks for that location are completed.
Summary: I have played a lot of the Nancy Drew games lately. This one was the best so far. I enjoyed the shorter length frankly. Sometimes her games go on way too long and get tedious. This one wasn't bad. The only thing I did get a little annoyed at was toward the end with the statues in the garden. Everything else was great. Nothing too tough, by the end you should now how to defuse a bomb and/or give facials in case that ever comes up.
Summary: My daughter loves Nancy Drew so I got her this game. It moved really fast and she was finished with it in a few days. She has not played it again, but she did enjoy it when she did play. Might be better off getting it used then buying new.
Easier than the classic Nancy Drew mysteries, but very fun...

Summary: The entire game only takes about 3-4 hours to play which was really my main disappointment with this purchase. However, you can purchase it for less then seven dollars as a video download on Amazon -- and then it is a bargain. This is a new format for HER Interactive. It eliminates many of the aspects of the other Nancy Drew games that I find frustrating/boring. The dialog is snappier and there is much less of it.
Summary: This was the first of the Nancy Drew games I actually liked well enough to play through. The voice acting was pretty decent and the storyline was consistent and entertaining enough to draw me in. It was challenging in some places (e.g., those darned timed games, I got blown up several times) and some mini games felt repetitive (especially the facials). Overall, I thought long and engaging enough to be worth the buy.
