  • Basic Pros/Cons List for ASH

    Favorite things about this game:
    • One reviewer mentioned that this game really felt like a "detective" game, and I totally agree. There's snooping, eavesdropping, crime scene investigation, and collection of fingerprints, alibis, evidence, etc.
    • The plot was great - a realistic, logical storyline that flowed well, and solid motives for each character so that you were kept guessing the culprit until the very end. I personally am not a big of the games that rely on farfetched plots (monsters, creatures, ghosts) and a series of tedious puzzles until suddenly the game's over, the secret's revealed, and that's the end. This game felt like a classic ND game and a true mystery!
    • Speaking of characters, they were very fun to interact with and well-developed!
    • The graphics were lovely, especially for the scenery. River Heights was perfect, and Nancy's house was breathtaking.
    • All of the tasks were very doable - challenging, but nothing so difficult that I was left stressed and looking for a walkthrough.


    Not-so-favorite things:
    • Length could have been a bit longer. It took me around 7 or 8 hours to complete the game.
    • Switching between four characters became a bit tedious after a while, especially when you had to switch to Nancy every time you wanted to change. George felt way underused, almost like her addition to the game was an afterthought.
    • I was one of the people who were hoping to see Ned! Maybe he'll make an appearance in future games.



    I really had very, very little to complain about with this game. Tons of detective work, a solid plot, beautiful scenery, and interesting characters. Thumbs up!

    (And definitely worth the whole downloading brouhaha.)

    Feel free to add your thoughts about the game!

      I agree, but I do want to say, George looked very cartoony. It seemed like her photo from the phone contacts was copied and pasted onto an improved version of an original SCK character. Just my opinion
      I'm a boy who plays Nancy Drew games and I don't think I'm weird!


      CLOWNS!

      They keep the world laughing!

        Yes! I almost mentioned this in my original post. The first thing I noticed about her was that she looked like she was made out of construction paper. It was very distracting. Poor George.

          where's Ned?

          Yes, now that you mention it, how come we saw Bess and George, but not Ned? His voice did interact with everyone but I would have liked to see the hunk! LOL - maybe next time.
          It's not what happens in life that counts, it's how we deal with it that matters.
