I have played a LOT of Nancy Drew games and this one was by far the hardest one. I never use the walkthrough with any game. This one, I needed the walkthrough. I played on the Junior level so I can only imagine how impossible the Senior level is. The puzzles are so challenging. I had to watch a youtube video on how to do the bento boxes because the instructions were confusing. The other puzzles consist of Sudoku and nonograms. If you have never had to do a nonogram, look it up before you buy this game. You have to do a humongous one at the end. With that being said, if you think all of the Nancy Drew games are way too easy then this is definitely the game for you!

Despite having some problems running on mac at first, and an imo really disappointing ending, I enjoyed this game quite a lot. I've read the ND books as a kid but am new to the games.
Personally I consider some stuff that could've made my playthrough a little more comfortable missing - like a journal for a example, or at least a conversation log. It was quite hard to keep track of things without any sort of logging device, so I would recommend to keep a notepad nearby. It applies especially if you don't intend to inhale the whole game at once.
Thumbs up for puzzles, and silly at times, but still refreshingly good voice acting.

Personally, not my favourite game.
I am a big ND & Her Interactive fan but this game just didn't make me want to play it. I TRIED to play it 3 times and all of those times after like 30 minutes I'd get bored with it and just switch to a different game. This is something that I don't do with ND games. I like to play until I finish the story/game.

If you want the best from ND, then I'd suggest Secret of Shadow Ranch, Phantom of Venice, Treasure in the Royal Tower and Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake.
Secret of Shadow Ranch & Treasure in the Royal Tower are not on Steam yet (Get it together Steam!) but Phantom of Venice & Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake are available for PC (and not for Mac OS yet, unfortunately).

If you have a Mac OS then you're left with Shadow at the Water's Edge, Secrets Can Kill, Trail of the Twister, & Tomb of the Lost Queen. Out of all of those 4, the best is Tomb of the Lost Queen. (As of Feb 21, 2016)

Нэнси, куда только тебя не закинут твои приключения. И в Шотландию, и в Германию ,а теперь даже в Японию. По моему мнению, игра "Тень у воды",получилось одной из самых пугающих и жутких игр про НД. От каждого треска можно пугаться,а от саундтреков и подавно. Сюжет держит в напряжение до самого конца, а разнообразие головоломок и ребусов, не заставит скучать юных сыщиков. К тому же, это ведь Япония, как там можно соскучиться? Безусловно 10/10. Я осталась с хорошими и положительными эмоциями от этой части.

I didn't realise until I had done all of Rentaro's puzzles that my game was gliched! I had to start over from the beginning, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the game, I am still in the process of finishing, I just couldn't continue past a certain point due to something that failed to happen in the beginning.

FOR MAC USERS: The code to fix this game is here: ThwEDgb5rfFw
Right click on the game in your library, click on "Properties", click on the "Beta" tab, then paste this code into the bar and hit enter. Then change the setting in the drop-down menu above it. This works with ALL Nancy Drew games that come up with the error you're getting.

Anyway, it's worth the extra steps, because this is by far my favorite game of the few I've played! I love Japan, so the cultural aspects the game shows off are really fun and appealing. The puzzles are hard, and there were a few times I thought the game was glitched out when really there was just something else I had to do, but overall I really enjoyed the ride. The characters are awesome, it's scary and exciting, and I ended up pulling an all-nighter because I couldn't leave any puzzle unsolved. If you're looking for a Drew game to introduce you to the saga, and like a challange, play this one.

I just started playing Nancy Drew games and so far this one was my favorite. I have to admit this game made me jump out of my seat... Then I'd laughed at myself, Because this is a "kids" game. The puzzles were great. I did struggle sometimes, but well worth it!

Shadow at the Water's Edge did something not a lot of Nancy Drew games have managed to do - it genuinely scared me.

(Granted, most of it was jump-scares, but I still had to take a breather afterwards...)

Set in Japan, Shadow at the Water's Edge toes the line between ancient Japanese folklore and the modern, bubbly culture of the city today. I liked the story, the characters and the puzzles. I even enjoyed the fact that there were multiple endings to this one, depending on your choices, and how those played out in the end.

I can't say it's a favourite - there was something about the game that I can't quite put my finger on; it didn't resonate as well with me as some of the others - but I would recommend it, as it was a fun game, not too difficult but just tricky enough to keep you interested. If you like ghosts and are looking for intrigue, pick this one up.

I found a forum that fixed the error problem when running this game on MAC. This worked for me, and hopefully it'll do the same. I'm going to copy & paste directly from the forum:
Hey everyone! So I've been emailing Steam since December and the other day they sent me a response that actually made the game WORK! Hopefully the same will work for all of you.
Here's what you have to do:
Go to the game in your Steam library, right click the game and click properties.

Next go to Betas.

Then in the box where you can type stuff copy and paste this --> ThwEDgb5rfFw
That unlocks a certain beta thing just for this error code.

Then go to the drop down menu above and another thing should be unlocked that starts with drmfix.

Close the dialog box and try playing the game.

I hope it works for all of you! Good Luck :)

The game won't play on Mac and it gives the error code "Application load error 5:0000065435." When I looked up this error I found many people who also had this problem with this game.

Don't buy it because you probably won't be able to play it and you'll lose your money.

Puzzles: 8/10
Story: 6/10
Characters: 2/10
Ambience: 6/10
Scare Factor: 8/10
Overall Experience: 6/10

I played a lot of Nancy Drew when I was 14. If this game had existed back then, I would have DIED of fear. From my experience, this is the scariest ND game so far. Full of fun puzzles, though some seem very meaningless and unrelated to the plot. Biggest complaint was the characters, all of which were extremely annoying. The fact that a Japanese family spoke exclusively seamless, fluent English with one another was extremely unbelievable, and I resent that Her Interactive asks players to ignore it. Dear Her Interactive: stay in the States... and stick to the original, Carolyn Keene stories!

TL;DR: Recommended for ND fans who love puzzles and/or horror movies. Not recommended for ND fans that love story and ambience.

Yes, hello, 911? Creepy music is already playing and I just started the game.

Just kidding. The game creates excellent scary atmosphere with the music and visuals. Right from the start you get this uneasy feeling that something is very off in this ryokan. I was very captivated with the story and spooky atmosphere this Nancy Drew had to offer. Although prepare yourself for some difficult puzzles because this game has quite a few. From the sudoku to that stupid painting backing, you'll be spending quite a bit of time working that brain of yours.

Super fun and super challenging. The truths you uncover at your stay in Japan will surprised you, as will the ending.

This one in particular has some pretty great atmosphere and is generally unnerving at times. Pretty much all of the Nancy Drew games are great though.

Staying in a Japanese inn you find out its haunted meaning theres a mystery afoot, Nancy Drew takes the case! The music is very fitting with a Japanese poppy kind of sound. The game has TONS of stuff to do from puzzles to playing pachinko and making Bento. This game has ALOT of content, it can be as short or as long as you want. There are all kinds of puzzles like Nanograms, where you make a picture out of boxes, to Renograms, and Soduku. There are 10 of each of those puzzles, but fear not there is only a few soduku things that need solving, having never done soduku before, I thought it was fun but not impossible. Some of the puzzles made no sense, like one where your underwater and cut some ropes, the pattern for cutting them is just strange.

This game makes you feel more like your in Japan oddly than Go Go Nippon! With its pachinko parlors, and making bento, to the importance of phone charms this game has alot going on for any mystery solver.
If you get stuck check here, never give up:

There is a fix in this thread. I managed to get the game working. I will update this recomendation, once I have played through it.

**Warning for Mac users.**
There issue with this game and other Nancy Drew games through Steam theat give an error and deem the game useless for Mac. There are many forum threds that talk about the error "Application Load Error 5:0000065435", many of which state that they have been intouch with steam, but all that Steam support asked them to do was reinstall the game or delet some files in an attempt to get the game running.

There are also reports that this game works with an older Steam client, this is true, but unsuitable as you can only get the current version. Also as this is true, it would seem that all that is needed is a new Steam update so that the Nancy Drew games will run agaiin on Mac.

Nancy Drew games are fun little point-and-click puzzle games for those who can appreciate a good B-Movie. No, it's not great AAA quality but if you can snag one one a good sale and can laugh at its flaws, then it's a great time waster. That being said, this one is easily the scariest in the series so far and I really enjoyed it!

This was definatly one of my favorite Nancy Drew mystery games, though I didn't very much care for the puzzle in the basement of the inn. I believe there was too much room for error, I wasn't able to finish the puzzle for quite a while due to one square I had messed up on, which took quite a while to find. I had to keep restarting the puzzle which made me quite frustrated. But overall this was a very good game and I do recommend it to mystery lovers out there. Have fun!

I bought this game for the Mac and immediately wish I hadn't. I can't even boot the game. The error message received is well known, Google it. It's existed since last year and it doesn't appear that Steam or HerInteractive have any interest in responding to or fixing the problem. They won't refund you. Only buy if you boot camp (?) your Mac, othewise? STAY AWAY AND SPEND YOUR $7 ON SOMETHING WORTHY.

While this was not my favorite Nancy Drew game, it was probably still worth the purchase. In some games, I feel like I really learn things and walk away with a better knowledge of history, culture, etc. In this game, they tried to put really big things into small tutorials, like origami, the Japanese tea ceremony, and the Japanese alphabet. Sorry, but I'm not gonna learn any Japanese in flipping through a book for 2 seconds... So I think they should have focused on more realistic educaitonal goals for the game, but it still was worth the sale price.

Unless something has been fixed, this game does not work on macs. On top of that, you have to wade through crud to try and figure out where to get help (which ends up being not Steam but Her Interactive), and I'm currently several months in without ever receiving an actual response or solution to get the game running.

Shadow at the Water's Edge is a fun point and click mystery game. It has challenging puzzles, interesting characters, nice background music, cool atmosphere, and it has a few spooky moments. You learn about Japanese culture and many words in Japanese.

If you've enjoyed other Nancy Drew games, I'd recommend this one.

I've been playing Nancy Drew games for about 12 years now and have finished all of them, and I have to say this is probably my favorite one. This is by far the spookiest game, there are lots of fun-quirky-optional accomplishments you can procrastinate with, and the puzzles are new and unique to the ND series. They are fun and engaging and some of my favorites! Overall, I absolutely LOVE this game!!
