The Captive Curse

21 November 2014
Summary: One of the last few Nancy Drew games I bought, The Captive Curse reminded me more of some of the earlier games, like Haunted Mansion or Deception Island. Gameplay is very task-oriented, but not as repetitive as Trail of the Twister was, thank goodness. You weren't required to complete the same tasks over and over again in order to earn enough of something to get your next clue, and the plot was more complicated than some of the games surrounding this one were.
Nancy Drew Travels to Germany to Stop a Monster in This Thrilling Game
10 August 2014
Summary: I've played all but the newest of the Nancy Drew games. I have enjoyed all of them, but "The Captive Curse" was especially enjoyable, in my opinion. The game is set in a German castle which is preparing for an annual celebration - a celebration of the fact that the legendary monster that supposedly plagued the castle in centuries past. However, there is a slight problem - the monster has been sighted.
Summary: I am a 21-year-old hopelessly addicted to Nancy Drew games. My favorite games involve lots of secret passage ways, lots of clues to find, and reasonable puzzles. Overall Captive Curse was OK. I've actually played it twice now, having received it a few years back and since having forgotten most of the plot. Location/Scenery: I LOVE Castle Nancy Drew Games. I think they are one of the absolute best settings, but this castle disappointed. The layout was extremely odd.
Summary: If you like ND this one has a fun and interesting plot and puzzles and I really liked the characters. The game of cows is boring but the one in the study had me coming back to play again and again. Lots of great places to really interact with. Easter Eggs.
Summary: After finishing the Captive Curse I felt I really had to tell what I thought! Captive Curse was the first Nancy Drew game I have liked since Phantom of Venice. Lately the games have lacked elements that made the old ones, like Haunted Mansion and Treasure in the Royal Tower, great but CAP brought much of it back.
