I've been playing Nancy Drew games since about 2001, and I've played almost all of them. This one looked particularly good to me from the trailer, and it did not disappoint. It wasn't as challenging as some others (Crystal Skull comes to mind) but it was not overly easy either. I also enjoyed the plot, and the ability to choose how it ended (to a degree) was quite interesting. Overall, I'd probably put it in my top 5 ND games.

Love all of HerInteractive's ND games. They're all done beautifully. This game is no exception, however it is one of the more frightening ones for wusses like me. Still beat it all the same lol. Great game.

I am fond of the Nancy Drew games, and I enjoyed playing this one. The story was intriguing, and I loved the supernatural elements in this game. The puzzles were challenging, and the characters were interesting. If you are a fan of the Nancy Drew games I would highly recommend this game.

Hands down, favorite Nancy Drew game to date. What sealed it for me was the ambiance. The random movements while playing made it very immersive.

I found the plot to be really interesting, better than a lot of the other ND games, in my opinion. The characters were unique, and at least somewhat believable. All in all, it was fun and I recommend it.

Fun, though this one seemed a bit more predictable that they usually are.

I'm sure it's a great story; everyone else seems to think so. But there's no way I could reccomend this game. Why?

Because the engine running the game is so god damned dated that it's impossible to drag any enjoyment from it at all. In the days of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Gone Home, Esther, etc... There's just no excuse for this game to be this half ♥♥♥♥♥. Click this arrow, move 2 feet, click this arrow, move 2 more feet so you can see this wall. What's on this wall? Nothing at all. There is zero immersion in this game, though not for lack of their sound team trying.

When this game costs as much or more than it's direct competition, and is getting soundly beat by these new indie studios, the drawing board needs to be brought out, meetings called, and heads rolled. This ♥♥♥♥ is unexcusable.

This Nancy Drew game had a great atmosphere and an interesting cast of characters in addition to the storytelling. The paranormal aspect of the game was spooky without being corny and the action started off right away. There was a lot of interesting dialogue and plenty of independent exploring with a lot of new locations and surprises along the way. I really enjoyed Ghost of Thorton Hall and I think it was sufficiently challenging without being overbearing about it. I'll definitely be revisiting this one!

A very mysterious and quite scary game. The puzzles aren't impossible and the setting is great. I didn't like the story however and there weren't as many characters as I would have liked but overall, a great game.
