Summary: I can give Nancy Drew no more than one star (if that) because though I downloaded it several times, I was never able to install it .It kept freezing in the middle of the installation. An email to the publisher, Her Interactive, didn't give me any useful help either. Because I had used points for it, I also bought a CD copy, but that one wouldn't install either. Nancy Drew was a fizzle.
Summary: This game was definitly challanging, but it was worth it. There are all sorts of languages like Italian, Chinese, German and English. There are many hidden messages. Nice music. Many nice scenes of Italy. sort of a spy game. Love it.
Nancy Drew:Phantom of Venice is good for mystery lovers and gamers alike!!!

Summary: This game is superb, the way the puzzles are challenging to the mind yet simple enough to solve, the way the characters are brought to life through encounters, and the way the plot flows so smoothly to uncover truth. The product is on par with the other Nancy Drew products out there. If you are fond of mysteries that are able to be solved without too much mind-bending plot twists and pointless dialogue to drag the game out, it is for you.
Summary: this game had too many hard puzzles, mainly the dancing. if you like nancy drew and enjoy challenging puzzles, get it. I think that some of the puzzles are too challenging for children. I really didn't like this one so much. it is my least favorite nancy drew game.
Summary: My daughter & I have been playing these Nancy Drew PC games for several years, over twenty titles, and this one is easily one of our top favorites. The Venetian settings are charming, getting around is fun, the mystery is intriguing, and we even discovered our all-time favorite mini-game: the Italian classic, Scopa. (It was so much fun to beat Enrico on the computer that I found my daughter an authentic Neapolitan deck for Christmas!
Summary: one of my favorite nancy drew games!!! Definitely in the top 5 favorite nancy drew games! My other favs are shadow at waters edge, message in a haunted mansion, treasure in the royal tower, and tomb of the lost queen... silent spy wasn't that bad too.
Summary: The 18th game in the Nancy Drew series, "The Phantom of Venice," pits Nancy against a circle of thieves in Venice, Italy. While investigating, Nancy discovers that the robberies seem to be connected to someone in the house where she is staying. Following clues...and intercepting a few carrier pigeons...Nancy finds that the case may be more dangerous than she ever thought. While the story is not ridiculously complex, it is effective.
