With such a shallow experience, the ending felt sudden and forced, with barely any suspense and even less sleuthing. You do suspect various characters throughout the game, but not because you've uncovered surprising new clues. Instead, the game--at times literally--tells you to. There are no plot twists. There are no new phone friends. There are no secret passages leading to new locations. For that matter, there are hardly even any locations. This is very much a linear, what-you-see-is-what-you-get game.
And that's what's so frustrating--and disappointing--about ToT: it's the smart kid who bombed the big exam. There's so much potential in this game that simply goes unrealized. The combination of sharp writing, solid characters, a logical plot, and challenging but beatable puzzles sounds like a sure winner, and indeed it would be if the game did more than scratch the surface of what those had to offer. As it is, it's a fun diversion rather than an engrossing story.Read more ›

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.
The interface is just the same as Warnings At Waverly Academy and the other newer games. Just point in the direction you want to go in and click basically. There is a new icon though that is special to this game, that is the Phone icon and the Pa Pennies icon. The Phone icon lets you go onto Nancy's phone to make calls, take pictures, change the time in the game, and change the settings (background and color). I really liked the cell phone feature of this game. It's a lot of fun to take pictures and change the background of the phone to whatever you want from the game. Throughout the game, you can collect Pa Pennies which can be used to play an arcade game and buy candy. Overall, a great interface for playing, very intuitive.
The plot was pretty "tried and true" for this series. Basically someone is sabotaging the Canute College Tornado Chasing Team's equipment. The Team is in a competition with other tornado chasers for $100,000,000 which puts the stakes pretty high. It's a good plot, but if you have played the other Nancy Drew games, you recognize the plot pretty well. Also the plot wasn't really developed as well as it could have been. Plus there weren't very many examples of sabotage that really made the plot believable. Some examples were a broken coolant pipe in a car, a video camera that doesn't work, a mice infestation, and a phone line that explodes. Frankly the sabotage was somewhat juvenile to me.
The characters were great and well developed.Read more ›
This game was nothing but random puzzle after random puzzle! The tornados were there, but barely. It's almost like HerInteractive sat around and created all these tedious random puzzles, then just threw "Tornado Chasing" in as a bad attempt to connect the puzzles. I would like a plot next time please. This was such a lazy excuse for a ND game! I get that Nancy is an intern in the game, but come on HI! Doesn't mean the player wants to file and catch mice the entire game! Don't even get me started on the "driving"...not only do I HATE playing in the third person, they made the driving impossibly hard!! From the reviews i've seen 90% of people hate "driving" any sort of vehicle in the ND games, so why does HI insist on forcing us to do it! Please, HI, i'm begging you, no more cars, boats, golf carts, etc.! Just point and click maps please! It's so obvious that it's just a time waster/filler, to try and make it seem like your games aren't getting shorter and shorter.
I used to love the Nancy Drew games, it was like getting lost in a book, I didn't want to stop playing! I've played games 1-16, then took a few years off and just started playing again. Apparently I picked the wrong two, to get back to playing! I'm wondering if 17, 18, 19 & 21 are going to be just as bad as 20 & 22! The last two I have played, Ransom and Twister, have just been so awful, I could wait to finish them. Especially Ransom, which was sooooooo bad it took printing out a walkthrough, to get me to finish it. Please bring back the great games I used to love.

This is a title that I skipped over for years. It just didn’t sound interesting to me and I knew that the reviews of it were mixed. It ended up being okay. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Llama Mama
