Nancy Drew: Tomb of the Lost Queen

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.
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.
Conclusion: Overvall If you’re still hankering for some old school adventure game action, then you could do worse than Tomb Of The Lost Queen . It’s hardly the most polished, most attractive title out there but it doesn’t make any grave missteps and just about kept me engaged enough to see it through to its conclusion.
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.
