Okay, so a 50/50 rating was the best I could do with this game. There were so many things I liked about this game, but there were also an equal amount of things I didn't like. The "Pros": Decent graphics, intuitive gameplay and a fun storyline. The "Cons": Too much game stopage and loading, spoken character scenes were long and drawn-out and there was no smooth scrolling or scanning of an area. One other note of dislike: Even though the game is obviously called "Nancy Drew", it would have been nice to be able to play the game from a guy's perspective. What I mean is, it was hard to play this game and not shake the idea that all the characters were interacting with a girl and I almost felt that I had to think the way a girl might think in order to really immerse myself in the story. It's not the same as controlling Samus Aran in the Metroid series. Having said all that, this is still a fun game. And I'm sure that my little gripes could be easily overcome. This is why I felt it only fair to rate this game right in the middle. But try it for yourself.
