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!

I thought that this game was a lot of fun with interesting cultural aspects and some folklore as well. The setting was appealing and fun to navigate and I thought that it was an enjoyable game. One of the better games in the series.

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.

Enjoyable installment in the Nancy Drew series. I did think the plot and mystery were a bit lacking compared to some other games in the series (I'm thinking Blackmoor and Crystal Skull), but I overall enjoyed the puzzles and ambiance.
