Review - Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill

Play the Game that Started the Award-Winning Series! As a tribute to Nancy Drew's 80th Anniversary, Her Interactive is remastering the first game that launched the award-winning adventure series. With completely updated graphics and new puzzles, this special edition will appeal to old and new fans alike! Death, danger, and deception weren’t on the curriculum at a Florida school, but when Jake Rogers is murdered to protect a lie, everything changes. With the town in fear and the students in shock, you, as Nancy Drew, are the only one who can uncover the truth. Dig into a deadly mystery and discover a secret worth dying for before the murderer strikes again!

My Take on the Game While I had not played this game in the past HERinteractive mentions that this new remastered version of their game has the following new features:

  • New ending
  • New challenging puzzles
  • Updated graphics
  • Single installation - no switching between discs necessary

For me being a newbie to these games, I have to say that I was quite impressed by the game itself. The game was highly interactive and engaged me throughout the game itself. You are kept in suspense within the game and challenged throughout the game with twists and turns that you are not expecting. I would event state that some of the puzzles were quite challenging (even for an adult).

I give this game high praise and the only complaint (as in my review of Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister) was that the experience is fleeting and does not last long enough!

If this game sounds like one you would like for your family, it is released next week and can be found on Amazon!
