I am a Nancy Drew AmbassadHER and received this game for my honest review.
If you've never played a Nancy Drew Game, then you're missing out! Ever since my 4th grade teacher read us a Nancy Drew book, I was hooked and still am hooked. But it looks pretty silly when a grown adult goes to the library to check out Nancy Drew for herself! So I get my fix for all the mystery and suspense from the Nancy Drew PC Games and have been for years!
The newest Nancy Drew game just came out and I had the chance to play it this past week. And let me tell you, it's all I've been doing! The newest game is Ghost of Thornton Hall and it was a very exciting play!
The story revolves around the disappearance of Jessalyn Thornton and the mysteries that surround the Thornton family. You'll meet and talk to four people who become your suspects as you try and figure out what happened to Jessalyn and all about the dark family secrets.
Have I peaked your interest in playing the game yet? I have to say it was amazing! It took me three days to play it but that's because I played it for hours on end and even had to get help at the amazing Nancy Drew Message Boards when I got stuck! The game is exciting and even a bit scary at times! And since I've been playing them for years, I saw some changes that I loved:
- If you have a fatal error, you can start right back over. You don't lose your entire game anymore which is so nice!
- When you play on amateur level, you can get hints and even the solutions to harder puzzles so you don't have to leave the game to go get help.
- You can earn trophies and track them at the end of the game
- In the older games, usually at the climax of everything there was either a puzzle or conflict you had to solve within a certain time limit or you lost the game or died. In this game, your final puzzle isn't timed so it helps you think about solving it instead of rushing.
