Nancy Drew 1: Secrets Can Kill REMASTERED

-Before I Begin...
My review will be spilt up into sections and have a in-depth look at that topic. Then at the end of the review I round up the stars and give an overall rating.
**Also you should know that this is not a completely new release by Her Interactive, it is a refresh of their very first game ever, which was made in 1998 and is rather outdated. With that said, I have not played the original Secrets Can Kill (except for the very beginning until I got frustrated with the two disk swapping, impossible to navigate, no direction of the game). So I do not know all the differences of the original compared to this Remastered edition.

-Interface
First off you should now that the original Secrets Can Kill (SCK) had a much different interface than this game does. SCK was very hard to navigate and play in with comparison to the refreshingly simple one in this game: Secrets Can Kill Remastered (SCK2). The inventory, task list, journal, and the camera icons are all new to SCK2. I love the interface Her Interactive uses, and is so much better to play in than the difficult original game.
*****

-Plot
Finally, the first (and only thus far) plot surrounding a murder. You may have noticed with 98% of the Nancy Drew games that the plots are pretty tame. They usually revolving around a treasure, mysterious accidents, sabotage, or, every so often, a kidnapping. This game is refreshing because somebody was killed and there is a vicious murder on the loose. I was instantly intrigued and as you played through the game, the plot thickened and grew even more interesting as you questioned suspects and gained leads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nancy Drew Remastered--and Rebooted. August 28, 2010
By Cat
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I confess, I've played every Nancy Drew game in order beginning with the original Secrets Can Kill. Playing this remastered version of the first effort is an interesting and fun way to see how the series has changed.

What's the same? The plot remains, although the ending differs significantly. Unlike the typical ND game now, you're solving a serious crime--a murder--and dealing with more adult themes, such as drug use. All of the original characters appear, with what to my memory are their original slightly awkward scripts. You visit the same locations--including the still somewhat difficult to navigate high school hallways that all look alike--and solve many of the same puzzles, which mostly aren't particularly needed to finish the game. Playing the game was definitely not a new experience, and I was not surprised by the culprit because, well, if you've been down this road before you will see it coming. Trust me.

So, where's the remaster? There are some much appreciated technical improvements: the newer, user-friendly interface; the introduction of Nancy's cell phone; the replacement of the old three-level difficulty system with the now-standard Junior/Senior Detective selection; and other good stuff like improved graphics. Thanks to Nancy's notebook, I did not have 150 Post-its with clues all over my desk. The game's main puzzle is new, and the ending is now much more elegant. The developers have replaced a lot of non-essential original content with nods to series games, which gives SCK a bit of a greatest hits feel.

On its own merits, the game--groundbreaking and innovative in its day--doesn't really stand up to its successors. It's easy, it's short, and it's not particularly quirky.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nancy revisits the past in this game August 28, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
HERinteractive, the company who create the Nancy Drew games, decided to remaster the very first game out - Secrets can Kill, for Nancy's 80th Anniversary. I have not played the original game so I won't be comparing it to the original, just judging the game on it's own merits. In this game, Nancy goes undercover as a student at the local high school, where her Aunt lives. Nancy is working with a local police officer, and has the task of finding out what happened to Jake Rodgers, a student who was murdered. The game does not show the body or anything gory, nor does it go into detail about what happened to Jake, so it would be fine for kids to play, but they should have an adult there to explain some of the other things in the game.

When you, as Nancy, arrive in town the first thing to do is meet the other students. All of these kids have something to hide. Daryl works at the local diner, Connie spends most of her time studying, Hal, an exchange student, and Hector, a football player who is obsessed with playing pro ball someday. I found the different students fun and interesting to talk to, so I enjoyed that. You have three places to explore - The diner, Maxine's, the school, and Aunt Eloise's home. To help you out in the game, you also have access to a notebook, a to-do list, and Nancy's trusty phone. The puzzles in the game were not extremely hard, and in fact I didn't need to use spoilers for most of them.

Another special part of the game is that in many places you will be able to see references to the Nancy Drew books, from the book covers to the pictures from inside them. In addition to this, you will also be able to see actual drawings from Nancy Drew fans in the game. I loved this, it was so fun to see all of the amazing artwork. Overall, I found this game really fun and interesting to play. It had a good plot, and interesting characters, and for someone who hadn't played the first, it was great to see how the games first started out!
