This Nancy Drew game was very short on the amount of people and places to investigate. The puzzles were not very hard. We are Nancy Drew fans and of course play all the Nancy Drew games, but this one was not our favorite.

Please note that this is a review of the download process, NOT the game, which has been receiving decent reviews. I was not able to get the download to work after 6 full hours of struggling with it. There is a compatibility issue with the DirectX included in the download exe file and there's no way to opt out of downloading the DirectX file if you order the downloadable version -- the boxed version gives a little more flexibility from what I've read in the forums. My computer is a year old (Windows 7), has the latest version of DirectX and meets all of the min sys reqs. I also tried everything on the HerInteractive site (verifying the DirectX version, updating all of my system drivers, creating a separate folder for the DirectX file, deleting the install, reinstalling, deleting the download, re-downloading), all to no avail. For reference, the error code is ND-12126, "the installation of DirectX included with this game has failed..."

Extremely frustrating. I would definitely recommend the purchase of the physical game. Avoid the download and spend your time playing the game instead of playing computer technician.

My girls and I play Nancy Drew games together. We've been doing this for quite awhile. The Queens Tomb is a very good play! I would not say it is the best, but would rate the game above average. It is a a bit predictable with repeats of other stunts, and objective you've seen in other games. Also, the game allows you to get to other levels of the game without knowing how you did so. My disapointment with this game in general was the lack of new ideas and strategies. The setting was exciting, but the way through the game was similar to the other Nancy Drew games we've played. Regardless, we'll always love the Nancy Drew games and we always look forward to the new ones. So keep them coming!

well you go on a dig in the dessert...you discover a tomb...and articles...solve problems and puzzles...interview people...use a cell phone to use the web...call people...get clues....

just like all the other nancy drews i got...love this one too...it's a game i suggest you buy...
you get to wrestle a cobra...i wont say how...it would give that part away....i enjoyed playing the game with the girl at the camp..it's an ancient egypt game...

well worth the time and money...it's not a game you play and 4 hours later your done...it takes some brain to solve the puzzles..you pick up articles to help solve them......

you walk into a tomb search around and see what a tomb looks like...you use hieroglphics to solve puzzles..

i love this...it does mention real pharoah and queens and such...you will read about cleapatra..tut..all the famous ones...
you do pick up some interesting fact...

her interactive has another great game...
well packaged...no damage to product or box...on time delivery....another great game to play.....you cant stop....
if you have to take a break...go to camp and play the ancient egypt game.
graphics are excellent, they are clear, colorful... moving the character around the screens was easy..just point the arrow and click...
i found the game to have no stalls or glitches at all...clear voices...manipulating games pieces clear and actual movments...great sound effect...great movements of things that move on their self...

.oh just buy it...you will see for yourself...

I love the Nancy Drew games and was glad to see they came out with a new one. This, however, was not as good as the previous games. It seemed that there was much more conversation and less of the puzzle solving. The scenery was lacking as well. It is in the desert but there could have been more to the tomb.

I love the Nancy Drew games, but this was not one of them. Was rather disappointed at the way it began. The beginning of the game felt as though something was missing. The introduction of Nancy's story regarding the missing team was cool, but then it suddenly jumps straight into the sandstorm and Professor Boyle getting attacked. The graphics are super impressive and the puzzles in the game are challenging, brain teasing and enjoyable to do.

have most of the ND. this is my first download. the prices are getting a little too high so I might not be following the series after this. the game itself is normal ND good puzzles, ok plot. lots of backing and forthing. wish, for the price, the characters would move or do more. starting to think I'm getting played by HerInterActive

I really love the game play in Nancy Drew games and this one is no different. I love the fact that you are exploring the tomb with all it's tunnels. You get to translate hieroglyphs and learn a few facts on the way. Very Entertaining and fun to do again and again. The characters are interesting. This one certainly is a keeper for my Nancy Drew collection.

My kids and I are big fans of these Nancy Drew mystery games. We have completed every one of them together. This one is just as good as the rest - thought-provoking and interesting. Even though there are many of these mystery games, they all seem to be different with new puzzles and brain teasers.

This installment in the series is one of three that have changed the look -- the format -- the actual "feel" of the game. The last three in the entire series, "Alibi in Ashes," "The Deadly Device," and "Tomb of the Lost Queen," have a new, crisp graphic interface, with great voice-overs and stunning overall effects that are missing in all other games to this point.

Nancy, in this particular adventure finds herself in Egypt, close to the Valley of the Kings, searching for clues to the whereabouts of the lost tomb of an unknown queen of Egypt, said to possess great wealth by way of diamonds, gold, and other precious metals and stones. She must deal with a bevy of suspicious characters, and even a COBRA in her bed! The tomb, itself is full of tunnels and all manner of traps and strange walkways. The puzzles, also, are not just diabolically difficult, they are also fun to solve.

Everything in the story is tightly woven into a very good narrative, and when a "Fatal Error" occurs (As such errors usually occur in the Drew Series), one can just click the left mouse button to return to the plot and try again, rather than listen to the complete conversation that follows the "Error."

The adventure keeps you guessing as to "WHODUNNIT?" just because there are enough despicable characters involved to bring this about. Really, this is one of the truly great Nancy Drew adventures, and I highly recommend it!

Just short of the excitement of "The Deadly Device" (The best of the series, in my opinion), this game, nevertheless, will keep you on the edge of your seat!
