Excerpt: Nancy Drew returns in a globetrotting adventure -- this time she's at an archaeological dig in Egypt. Archaeologist Jon Boyle, the expedition leader (and the one who arranged Nancy's visit), is seriously injured during a sand storm. Strange occurrences and a previous lost expedition -- possibly related to an ancient curse -- have driven most of the official workers away from the site.
Fab mystery lets you explore ancient Egyptian ruins.

Summary: Parents need to know that Nancy Drew: Tomb of the Lost Queen , is a computer mystery game set in Egypt. Similar to other titles in the series, kids act as Nancy as they seek out clues, talk with other characters, and solve puzzles. The game can be played on two difficulty levels. Some of the puzzles are challenging and cannot be bypassed. The game's subject matter includes Egyptian gods and goddesses, curses, aliens, amulets, and similar content.
Summary: I’m not sure what the price of Nancy Drew: Tomb of the Lost Queen is. I could look it up easily, but I don’t see a point to doing so. No matter what the cost, it’s a well-designed and well-written adventure that belongs on your virtual shelf right next to any other member of the genre. If you really need a number, though, it’s $20, and worth every penny.
Conclusion: Overall, Nancy Drew: Tomb of the Lost Queen is certainly not a poor game, but it isn’t one of the series' best either. Such a great setting and premise deserved equally great treatment, but limited character interaction and increasingly dated graphics prevent this outing from being a truly immersive experience, and more exploration through varied and animated scenes would have added some much-needed depth.
Excerpt: Nancy Drew: Tomb of the Lost Queen is the 26th game in the long-running Nancy Drew series of point-and-click adventure games from Her Interactive. This time, the sassy detective has been sent to Egypt to investigate an archaeology expedition gone horribly wrong. Are the problems at the dig site just accidents, evidence of a curse, or some troubles that are even more nefarious?
Excerpt: Если кто не в курсе, игры серии Nancy Drew давно выбились в отдельный жанр, подобно детской детективно-приключенческой литературе (из которой они, кстати, и появились). Вечно молодая 18-ти летняя реинкарнация мисс Марпл совершает по 2-3 путешествия в год почти на протяжении 15-ти лет, знакомя нас с национальным колоритом разных стран, да распутывая подчеркнуто загадочные истории. То в Японии призраки бродят, то в баварских лесах шатается местное чудо-юдо.
