I love the Nancy Drew games but resort to walkthroughs for most of them because I find them really hard. This one I managed almost completely on my own as the story line was so straighforward. I too have trouble with the directional arrows in all the games, where I'm frequently walking in circles (I gave up on the White Wolf of Icicle Creek after my first foray outside the cabin!) But this one seemed less cantankerous. I loved the Land Rush mini game, I went back to play it independent of playing the game itself. The driving around was a pain, the car was very loosy-goosey and kept slamming into everything. Perhaps because there were so few characters and so little area to cover, I found this the first ND game I could do on my own.
I like a challenging game with lots of activities but this game was too, too much. I couldn't make out what you were supposed to do even though I read the instructions. So many blocks at the bottom to open but no real hints. The arrows put you going in circles and I never made any headway. Others might find this interesting but it just didn't make sense to me.

I'll admit that I'm a life-long Nancy Drew fan, and I've played a few of the games. I'm such a fan that I usually forget the things that always bother me about the games until I play them again: Why do we not ever have a skip button for the puzzles or dialogues? The dialogues take forever! I guess these are the bad points, but they apply to pretty much all the ND games so take that as you like. Otherwise, I think this was vintage ND to me, with an interesting location and giving us a look into a career that we really don't know much about, just like the books sometimes did. The locations were limited. The puzzles were varied and interesting. The driving was a bear to keep doing over and over. I would have liked to zoom to a location once I had found it on the map. I felt this added to the immersion of the game world but also made it a little small and tedious to move around in. I also felt it was light in content compared to other ND games. Still, I thought it was worthwhile with the comfortable feel, good story, characters, puzzles and game concept.
