Summary: I have always liked Nancy Drew games; there really aren't that many good adventure/puzzle solving games out there, but it was very difficult and frustrating going through this game. It is a requirement to have a walk-through available because it is impossible to finish this game without some idea of what you are supposed to do. The clues were so vague and if you missed a couple words here or there, you can spin your wheels forever.
Summary: Searching for glass eyeballs was not the highest point in the game. The games were just challenging enough that they frustrate you, but easy enough that you don't spend a super long time on them (nancy drew fans: think of the spinning rooms in Blackmoor Manor. eek!). The start was enough to send my little sister running off, screaming. It is a creepier one, but not too too creepy. The storyline is sort of slow, and the culprit was SOOOO predictable.
Summary: I had read so many rave reviews of the nancy drew series that perhaps I was expecting too much from the game. However, the game was fairly simple, with a few glitches, but honestly not all that consuming. It was just ok.
Summary: First off we have LOVED all the other Nancy Drew's we have played. This game seemed intentionally created darkly... as if they're trying to steer us as an audience that way. Waaaay too many eyeballs! and creepiness for me and my 11 year old. I did and didn't like the new format for your items. I like the new list of suspects, but I liked the to look at my viewable items and portable items separately as in past games.
Summary: I realize that I am in the minority here, but I really didn't enjoy this ND game. On the positive side, the plot moves along, the graphics are great and it is more challenging than most of the last releases. However, many of the puzzles are just not that logical and can be VERY tedious. This is the first Nancy Drew game that I have had to consistently resort to cheat sites to get through (even on Junior Detective).
