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.

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.

With this being one of the most recent Nancy Drew games, it was pretty cool to see how the creators went about having Nancy in Germany. The puzzles in this game were a bit more challenging compared to games like Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake and The Final Scene. It was also really unique to be able to earn money by playing the game Raid -- very interesting how the creators went about it. Also, compared to the classic, the colors are a lot more vibrant and really draw you in. The only thing that I found frustrating was the well puzzle, without a spoiler, you're looking at spending half and hour to a full hour trying to figure this puzzle out. I wouldn't recommend playing this game if you're just starting to refresh your sleuthing skills or if you're new to the Nancy Drew games. The more recent games such as Captive Curse have really stepped up their game with making things more challenging and difficult for players. Other than the well puzzle and possibly getting confused with the passageways, this a pretty interesting mystery game to play.

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
