This has been one of the more challenging Nancy Drew games that I've played. I needed to consult a walk-through a few times. (I was playing on Senior Detective mode) I really liked the mansion, just wish there were more places to explore, it felt limited in that way. You cannot go outside, and there were only a handful of rooms to interact with. I prefer some of the other ND games, where you have more exploratory freedom. Overall, still a good game and will surely keep you entertained & frustrated for hours. :)

Not only did this game immediately draw me in with the creepy storyline in the old English Mansion, I couldn't stop playing! I need to note I love creepy, eerie Nancy Drew and any good Mystery Game...so this was right up my alley. There are really great characters and the puzzles are challenging. (I had to use a walkthrough a few times...not proud of it...LOL...but I did need it at times!) I loved the fact there was so much to explore in this Huge Mansion. The creepy factor with the characters was really neat and the whole story premise was so impressive to me. The story keeps you intrigued above any normal level. The ending of the mystery was truly a really amazing twist that I didn't think a Nancy Drew Game would do...but, of course it works out after it's over....but it is a great ending. Also, The puzzles can be challenging, as well as the games...so I suggest with All the characters try to revisit often to see if they need to be questioned again. There is a little girl in this game who adores Nancy...and loves to play games with her...try to play these games, there are several, play them early in the game until you've gotten pretty good at them...especially the jigsaw puzzle...practice that one early...you may need it later. I don't want to give too much away...but if you like Nancy Drew Games or just a Great Mystery Game with puzzles and mini-games that are very challenging...This Game is for you! If you LOVE Creepy, well thought out story lines and twists at the end...This is a game to try! And, have fun calling for food from the restaurant and learning about the "cockney" accent in England and order everything on the menu...it's fun! The other plus with this game...is you have an Alarm clock so you can set it to the time you find you need it to be! It's Great, Fun, Challenging, Creepy Mystery! (I personally do not think it's kid friendly...it all depends on the Child of course...but...it's definitely one to play before the kiddies and then you as the parent or guardian can decide. Just a suggestion.)

I found this extremely slow and cumbersome. I downloaded the limited trial and didn't even finish it. Sorry

This is one of the most challenging Nancy Drew games I've played so far! lol The bird does get annoying yet he's great on giving hints. This is definitely not a Nancy Drew game I could play without looking at a walkthrough! The puzzles are not easy!

This ND game was so much fun, yet so scary I couldnt play it alone. The wait was worth it after the scene gets set, the mystery unfolds. I just loved the way the plot thickened throughout the game. I also loved the secret passageways. Exploring Blackmoor Manor and learning the history of its inhabitants just added to the creepiness. The graphics were really good, yet I had to use my head not just the clicker. It was very realistic, the story was beleivable, and the villian a complete surprise!

This game is sheer genius! The best Nancy Drew mystery in my opinion! I was spellbound by the graphics and story line. Loved reading Nancy Drew novels as a young child and am fascinated with the Nancy Drew Her Interactive computer mystery games even more! Play this game with your youngster and/or significant other. It's better than watching a movie.

I love Nancy Drew games and this one is very great. The puzzles are challenging, the game has good amount of playtime, and I like the plot and twists. I had to resort to the walkthrough for some puzzles, like capturing the birds' pictures, but I finished most of the puzzles on my own, and really enjoyed them. The culprit was a little unexpected to me. I did suspect that one during gameplay, but dropped it near the end, just to find out that it's the one :O. The last task to escape took me several attempts over a simple mistake LOL, silly me. Overall, this one is a worthy game.

This is my favorite of the Nancy Drew titles that I've played thus far. Loved the theme, the gameplay, the challenging puzzles, the variety of puzzle types, and the quirky parrot. :-) This game does require keen observation and thinking, but everything you need to solve the mystery is there, if you look hard enough and pay attention to the clues.
