A wonderful Nancy Drew. Pretty much a twist on Mean Girls. 10/10 will play again.

I've loved the Nancy Drew game series ever since I was a child. Warnings at Waverly Academy does not disappoint in either nostalgia or gameplay.

This is the first Nancy Drew game I've played since I was a kid. Some of the puzzles in this game were a bit convoluted, but overall the majority of the game was enjoyable. The atmosphere was much more comfortable than the Nancy Drew games I've watched or demoed (no ghostly jump scares for players who are easily startled), and the minigames were fun in their own right. I probably spent much more time playing games within the game than I needed to. Definitely contemplating a second playthrough.

This is one of my favorite Nancy Drew games. It has a nice balance between sleuthing and puzzle solving, which is something that many of the newer games in this series are lacking. The plot isn't very complex, but it is interesting and had some unexpected twists. If you enjoy point and click mysteries, I think you will like this game a lot.

Loved this one. One of the few I've actually played without having to turn to a walkthrough for help. I thought I had the game figured out, but then her interactive threw a surprise at me I did not see coming. Brilliant!

Overall, this was a fun game with a good atmosphere. The puzzles were decent, and I actually wasn't expecting some of the twists. This is one of the shorter Nancy Drew games.

"Sometimes there are things you can see, that once you've seen them, you can't ever unsee them again." -Nick Cage, 8mm

Seriously, if you're going to play this, play with goons. Not that it has multiplayer, just trick a bunch of goons into playing it, get on Teamspeak with them, and get really drunk.

I can't imagine anyone actually hates their children enough to buy this game. I kinda wanna call child protective services on them.

Pre-Release Review
Posted: January 16, 2011
This story is way better than Ransom of the Seven Ships (which is the only other Nancy Drew game I've played), imo. The puzzles are more logic, and the story is better (I actually found it a bit exciting, and the bad person makes way more sense in this game.). The pacing is also a lot better - you don't drive or sail around in large areas, but just click around in the academy; you can get everywhere pretty fast.

The achievements are also guesswork here (they'll popup at the end screen), so just make sure do to the requirements plenty of times if you're going for them.
