I just finished playing "Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon", and I was literally blown away by the amazing graphics - what an improvement over previous games! These graphics are definitely on par with the likes of "Myst", and other adventure games - although you do have to play for a little while before you get to enjoy them...

This Nancy Drew game is about a young rich girl who had her father restore an old train back to working condition. There are many rumors surrounding this train - especially since the original owner wound up missing in the mid 1800's, and his engineer was found still in the train, in the middle of the desert, dead... On top of this, the owners wife had died on the train at an earlier date, so many people thought it was haunted.

The reason the young girl had wanted the train restored was because story had it that Jack Hurley (the original owner), had found gold in a mine - and that the directions to find this mine were all hidden inside the train. She wanted this treasure, and invited several people (including Nancy and the Hardy boys) to help solve the mysteries, and find the mine.

This is one of those games that ropes you in. In fact, I couldn't stop playing it!!!

I think it's important for you to know that I am 36 years old - a testament to the fact that these games are great for teens and adults alike!!!

Overall, I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoyed (or is enjoying) the Nancy Drew Mystery series. So far, this is hands down the best ND game I've played to date! Just a note of caution though - I'd suggest you choose the "junior detective" regardless of your age, as there are several areas where it's too easy to become stuck, and if you choose this level, you have the benefit of a few more hints and the task journal - both big helps when you find yourself unable to move on...

Although the Hardy Boys really didn't do much in this game, it was fun to have them in it. The game had lots of pipe puzzles, some slider puzzles (which I love) and lots more interesting games of chance and puzzles. It was fun to go all over the train and look for pieces to some of the puzzles. I have played all of the Nancy Drew PC games and really love them. I am in the over 65 age group and these never grow old. I am now looking forward to the next one.

I'm writing this review to help others. I purchased a Nancy Drew game, mistakenly assuming Windows Vista would be able to play XP compatible games. After some research I found there are 13 Nancy Drew games that are considered incompatible with Vista. The manufacturer suggested a "work around", which fortunately worked on my particular game, Danger on Deception Island but it may not work for other games. It's definitely worth a try.

This is a statement on HER's website ( [...] ) regarding Windows Vista:

"Unfortunately our first 13 games are not Vista Compatible, we are planning on re-releasing some of the more popular games with Vista compatibility but we don't have any set release dates as of yet. Starting with #14 - Danger By Design, all titles moving forward will be Vista compatible.

There is an unsupported work around that may work, if during installation you set the default path as "My Documents" then the game could possibly run under Vista. Unfortunately, we can't give any more support or help on older games running under the Vista Operating system."

The games that are NOT compatible with VISTA are:
Games » Danger By Design
Games » Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon
Games » Secret of the Old Clock
Games » Curse of Blackmoor Manor
Games » The Secret of Shadow Ranch
Games » Danger on Deception Island
Games » The Haunted Carousel
Games » Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake
Games » Secret of the Scarlet Hand
Games » The Final Scene
Games » Treasure in the Royal Tower
Games » Message in a Haunted Mansion
Games » Stay Tuned for Danger
Games » Secrets Can Kill

I just finished solving this game, and it's definitely worth your time and money. It's longer than Secret of the Old Clock, though not as long as Curse of Blackmoor Manor. Similar to Secret of Shadow Ranch, I'd say. (These are some other Nancy Drew computer games, for those who may be unfamiliar with the titles.) There are lots of puzzles, but they're not too difficult. The graphics are good, as is the ending sequence. I can't really think of a complaint, except that perhaps it could have been scarier. Looking forward to the next one!

This game was definitely not what I thought it would be. I was expecting a really easy game, mostly geared toward young kids and something I may be bored with. Not the case...

THE GOOD STUFF

1. The characters - the mannerisms and the personalities of the characters were great. I loved the phone chat with George & Bess.

2. The puzzles - they had just enough challenge to keep you on your toes. It stumped me at one point which actually made me happy. They had just the right amount of serious puzzles and fun ones so you couldn't get completely frustrated.

3. The graphics - A+! I was afraid they wouldn't be as good of quality but I was wrong. The detail was pretty darn good for a game geared towards young kids. The mine ride was the most realistic I have ever seen in a computer game.

THE NOT SO GOOD STUFF

1. The length of the game. I'm sure they know what they are doing when it comes to timing the game to keep kids attention but I thought the plot could have gone on a little more.

2. The HARDYS. Ok, they're cute and all but seriously I got a little miffed that they got to sit around while I (as Nancy) did all the work.

3. Locations. I thought that they could have expanded on the areas a little more. I would have liked to travel to a few more places before ending the game. Also I think the train should have had more rooms to explore. A lot of time was wasted trying to see if the doors in the sleeper car opened.

This was the first Nancy Drew game I have ever played and after this, it's definitely NOT the last.
