From almost the first moment of the game, you're presented with a lengthy and ever-increasing list of tasks to accomplish. Thankfully, these can be completed in pretty much whatever order you like; however, the motivation behind them is rarely more than "because El Toro/Johnny/that squawking bird said so." Even at the end, there's no real sense of urgency - perhaps because there's practically no one to talk to. No phone, no funny e-mails, no Prudence Rutherford. Just a stressed out George and a none-too-talkative beach bum. There are barely any suspects, and while the big villain reveal at the end is clever, for me it took away from the story not to try to figure out whodunit on my own. Also, the island, while beautifully depicted, is limited. Driving and sailing have always felt like time wasters to me - I much prefer the near-instant mass transit systems of some previous games - and the locations offer little to explore beyond the bare essentials.
As I mentioned, the game is highly task- and puzzle-driven. I found some of these puzzles to be obtuse or simply way too hard; at times I knew what I had to do, but I just couldn't do it in the limited time available or without what seemed like a lucky stroke. One of the mini-games is a (long) game of complete chance, which I don't remember ever happening in an ND game before and is really pretty boring. The puzzles might have been more of a pleasant mental exercise and less of an irritation if not that so many of them were timed.Read more ›
This is going to be a love-it-or-hate-it game for a lot of people, I suspect. It will either rank in their top 5 or their bottom 5, but I feel there will be very little middle ground here.
This game takes place on an island and you travel from location to location in a golf cart. You will also sail and scuba dive. You will have to solve puzzles to advance through the game, some of which are pretty difficult. I always use a walkthrough when I play because I don't like to get frustrated (I highly recommend Universal Hint System for walkthroughs), but even with a walkthrough some of the obstacles are still difficult. Beating the monkey at the coconut game comes to mind.
The only thing I didn't like about this particular game was the lack of characters with which to interact. But all in all, a very exciting and satisfying game.
The plot was amazing. Bess, Nancy's best friend, has won a trip to a tropical island! You as Nancy Drew, and George Fayne, are excited to go, but Nancy has to arrive a day late - and when she does, she finds out Bess has been kidnapped! The kidnappers want you to find a long-lost treasure if you have any hope of getting your friend back. I thought the plot was great. It was simple, and you knew what your goal was. The plot gets a 10/10!
Sadly the characters were very lacking. My favorite part of ND games is interacting with characters, finding out their motives/secrets/getting comic relief, etc. Unfortunately there really have been no memorable characters since TRN.
Besides George (who does nothing the whole game besides shake a phone trying to get it to work...), the only person on the island you can talk to is Johnny Rolle. He's a Jamaican beach bum who won't let you borrow his stuff unless you fix his stuff in return. I actually quite liked Johnny. He was a complex character with a cool accent, and you discover a huge secret about him in the middle of the game which is great. Now if we had about 3 other characters it would have been great!
Coucou is a parrot...kind of like Loulou from CUR, because Loulou is Coucou's grandmother. How original. Coucou is like the "teenage" Loulou, she was actually very funny and helpful, moreso than Loulou was. Coucou helped provide some comic relief.
George is kinda useless the whole game. She doesn't offer help and really you don't even need her. Plus she looked like a granny (so did Bess).Read more ›

I did not have high hopes for this one. The general consensus among ND fans is that this game is one of the worst titles in the series. Still, I wanted to give it a try. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Llama Mama
