being a nancy drew fan I enjoy and appreciate every single one in the series. some of the games are better than others though, this being one of them. the puzzles were fun, challenging and I never really got frustrated with them like I do in other games in the series. It feels a little bit cliched being like the fourth setting in large castle or mansion like thing (treasure in the royal tower, black moore manor, and castle maloy), but still keeps an origonal tone when outside of the castle. you feel as if the monster could be near you at any moment outside of the castle. Although the German accents were a little cheasy, at most times they were very humerous so it didnt really bother me. the one thing I wish I could change about this game was the story and plot. When compared to many other games to the series, the plot just didn't live up to the great mystery plot twists and creative stories in the other games. I would suggest this game to anyone who enjoys casual games, mysteries or has played previous nancy drew games. I give it a 7/10 but only as a nancy drew fan. coming from the veiw of a more serious gamer or someone who isn't much of a casual game player, 6/10

Most of time was spent trying to figure out what the game makers wanted me to do. You also have to talk to people or do things in the exact right order to "trigger" something to happen. Generally had to talk to people way too much (sooo boring!) and had to check over the same areas over and over again to see if I had triggered the right sequence of events to move forward. Quite tedious.

This game definitely wasn't one of my favorites. I couldn't really get into the plot, and found it rather boring at times. There wasn't enough going on in the game, and to me there wasn't enough suspense. The characters were interesting, but a little frustrating to deal with at times. Also, the game didn't feel like it flowed very well. It was almost as if they tried too hard with the story. I would only recommend this game to an experienced Nancy Drew player who has played many of the games before, just so they could add it to their collection. Otherwise, to me it wasn't really worth it.

I am a big fan of the Nancy Drew games, I have played almost half of them. The Captive Curse was good, the only problem I had with it was it had a little too many puzzles. I like puzzles, but not if you have to do one every 2 minutes. Also, it was very long and tiring, with a lot of hopelessly wandering around. Overall I would say a 7/10. Good game!
