Reviews

“Nancy Drew: Tomb of the Lost Queen is one of the best ever of the Nancy Drew mysteries. It's a compact, tightly-crafted whodunit that drips with history and intrigue. With cunning deceptions, cave-ins and cobras aplenty, the game's got the right balance of scary but not too scary.”
USA TODAY

“Her Interactive has clearly done extensive research to create puzzles, events, and characters that are authentic and faithful to the world of archeology in Egypt while taking creative liberties where appropriate. Most of the puzzles require knowledge of Ancient Egyptian culture, all of which is imbibed in game. I applaud this studio for entertaining me and making me feel like an Egyptologist simultaneously.”

♥ Entrenched in history.

When I was younger my dream was to dedicate my life to being like Indiana Jones. I wanted to uncover tombs and find lost skulls, a dream that guided me to studying ancient Egypt.

I played this game shortly afterwards and fell in absolute love with it. When I saw it in my library yesterday I decided to replay it and was filled with nostalgia at the history it covers! Absolutely wonderful.

♥ Filled with diversity.

In Tomb of the Lost Queen you have a variety of characters with different outlooks, personalities, and ethnicities. Her Interactive branched out with their character design, a fact much appreciated by the game, and by me. I liked how diverse the characters were though all, aside from Bess and nancy, were united by their sharp snarkiness.

♥ Great graphics!

Despite my love of older Nancy Drew games, I've been turning into a sucker for pretty graphics. I'm glad to see that they're moving to improving the graphics in the game, though I doubt a day will ever come when we see Nancy, and I'm pleased they're doing so. It provides a trip to Egypt for free....at least it feels that way! ' p '

✘ Nancy's voice...

and dialogue seemed a bit lacking compared to other games in the series. At times it sounded like Nancy was voiced by an entirely different person (Or is it just me?). Her dialogue fell a bit flat, especially in the emotional department, and paled in comparison to the dialogue provided by other characters.

Nancy shouldn't be outshined in her own game!

✘ At times the direction is unclear.

It seemed as if at times I was left without any clue which way to go. Whether this was by design, I know not, however I wish that there were more instructions provided. Using the hint hotline proved to be less than helpful, the new system of clicking hints underneath each task in the newer games is a lot more effective.

✘ Aliens.

Yick. It does tie in well with the history and legends surronding ancient Egypt yet personally I despise the very topic of aliens and wish to play Nancy Drew without encountering tin foil hat wearing characters.

Overall Nancy Drew: Tomb of the Lost Queen is as difficult as it is fascinating. A lovely addition to the Nancy Drew series and despite its flaws, I don't think anyone who plays it will regret doing so.

This is a solid adventure game with a very interesting subject: Ancient Egypt. I enjoyed the hieroglyphic translation puzzles and the storyline kept my interest as well. The artwork is quite good and felt like I was back in the Valley of the Kings again. This game is enjoyable for adults as well as kids, although some of the dialog is a bit tedious. One thing I liked is that they don't force you to do the typical "job" like some of the other games in this series, so you can just focus on the mystery at hand.

Awesome mystery. One of my favorites because of the Egyptology! The only issue is they don't give you very many tasks during the game. Otherwise I really recommend this game.

I love all the games in the nancy drew series, so my first verdict is going to be a bit biased. this is a point and click casual adventure game, so I would not recommend this game to any serious gamers who only play triple A titles. That being said, I also enjoy triple A title games as well, but also really love the nancy drew series for everything it has to offer in every game in the series. the things I appreciate the most about ND games that I dont see alot in other games is the presence of a mystery plot that you have to solve, and deductive and reasoning skills needed. the lost queen setting is very well done and incorporates lots of historical relevence into the puzzle and plot. the area of exploration is a bit small but otherwise I have no complaints about this game, one of the better games in the series, really enjoyed it. I have seen better plots in the series though. 7/10 from my biased view, but from the view of a mainstream gamer, 6/10
