Nancy Drew Dossier: Lights, Camera, Curses!, is a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The Edward Gorey-esque opening title sequence is brilliantly done, as is all the artwork throughout. Gameplay and progression are rather refreshing for this genre. HER Interactive has added some nice and unique investigative methods, which allows you in the title role to really show your stuff. The game asks you to pay attention to what's happening in each scene, but doesn't get abusive if you don't get something right the first time.
The storyline and plot are clever and immersive, with several twists and turns. Everyone is a suspect and everyone has their own agendas. The end result (without giving anything away), is actually satisfying. The vocals are well done too, as the characters range from seemingly smart to down right ditsy and don't miss a beat. There are a few timed puzzles that keep you on your toes, but again nothing so taxing that you won't be able to finish the game. Another fact in its favor is that it runs smoothly and without bugs. Money well spent!
