While this wasn't my favorite Nancy Drew game ever, it was definitely still a great game, and I really enjoyed playing it. As always, Her Interactive does a great job of creating an interesting mystery for you to solve, while weaving in several fun subplots and exploring the culture and atmosphere of an American harbor town. I would recommend this game to anyone who likes the other Nancy Drew games or who likes mystery point-and-click adventures.

Danger On Deception Island has likely been my favorite game in the series so far (I've played about 8).
It was the one that provided the most game time, some of my favorite puzzles and it's in a really enjoyable setting.

If you want to try the seires out, I can recommend this over some of the others, but I will be personally playing them all.

I was finally able to beat this game! This was the first Nancy Drew game I ever played. My parents got this for me when I was a kid and I never finished it until now because the disk no longer runs on my computer.

I enojyed the story and enjoyed the puzzles, although some of them required a bit of back and forth. I would recommend this game, despite its lack of replayability.

*03 jan 2015, 76% (A really good score considering that what I liked the most is RPG, FPS and Racing games). A good and interesting point and click game to play beetween more challenging games. As I am not an expert on that kind of game, it took me 20 hrs to do it, I played it at junior detective, and I will probably replay it at senior detective at some point , when I will have forget most of it. For the other rewiews they took around 10 hrs to do it, maybee they played it Steam offline or not.

Sorry for the peoples that like to have all the game is explain in the review, because I always do my review spoilers free, and if you read the description of a game, they explain what the game is about, or you can read other reviews to.

After I played a game, I asked myself that question. Now that I played it, and I know what is the game about, will I buy it again if I didn't have it. The answer for this game is : yes, but with a good rebate from Steam(for myself I bought the series with a good rebate, and i'm sure I will not regret it if the other game are as good than that one).

When I score game I always compare the game to the best game I have played overall, and I also compare it with the same kind of game that I have played.

It's better to play the game without a walktrough, unless you're really stuck at some place or don't understand what they mean in a sub-mission or activity. For good walktrough you can go in Steam Community Guide, or go at www. gamefaqs.com where they have really good walktrough for almost any game, and it's free.

For the scoring I look at : Control, Gameplay, Lenght of game, Story, Well made difficulty level, Music, Graphics, Voice acting, and finally Sound effect. I also like when I a play game, to have a good fun experience, and that also count in the scoring.

SCORING : 90+ Excellent / 80+ Really Good / 70+ Good /60+ Missed 1 or 2 thing to be good / 60- Missed many thing to be good. This is why I Gave that score.

P.S. Excuse me for my english as it is not my 1st language.
