Great game, one of the best Nancy Drew mysteries that I have played, it's pretty tough, but well worth it.

One of the best Nancy Drew games I've ever played, and I've been playing them for many years. It was awesome being able to switch between Nancy, Bess, George, and Ned while solving the case, and there was a nice twist in the plot compared to the usual games. The puzzles were fairly simple, but still gave a challenge. There were a lot of places to explore, and many different people to talk to. I played it straight through and it took me about 7 hours, but I'm sure based on experience with the games that would vary. I would definitely recommend this game to a first time player, or someone looking to play a different Nancy Drew game. 10/10.
