    I gave this game a 9 only because it was kind of short. Other than that? I loved it!

      I gave this title a 9. The graphics, snooping abilities, depth of character detail, and area to explore were wonderful. I was only left wanting in two areas:

      1. I had this hankering to go visit the shops, and was sad when I saw that they played no part in the game. I love that they were well fleshed out in order to give the town a realistic feel, but I couldn't help feeling restricted by not being able to poke around inside.

      2. ***spoiler removed***

      Other than that, I LOVED it, and it is by far my favorite game yet. Great work!

        I gave it a 9! I really liked this game!

        There was a LOT more snooping & sleuthing than in the other more recent games, and piecing together clues. I found all of the puzzles to be really fun, and not too difficult, either. [although I do like it when games have challenging puzzles] I also loved the setting and characters [ although Renate irked me at time :/ ]

        The only complaints are that I didn't really care for the Nancy/Ned drama, Also, and would've liked to learn more about the past and the castle's history. Like, a more well-developed plot.

        Overall this game reminded me a lot of the classics, and that's what I love about it. :)

              9.... It felt like a return to the older style of ND games, but also fresh and modern at the same time.

                Best game ever!

                I just got my game today and I've only played a few hours. But, so far I absolutely love this game. I have played all the Nancy Drew games (some twice) and this the best one so far!

                Keep up the good work Her Interactive!

                  I voted a 9 because I have games I favor slightly more than this, but it was a REALLY good one!

                    10!

                    The game is a 10. Period. LOL The graphics, music, characters, and the scenery were absolutely beautiful. The board games were great to play and very well thought out; the passages were spooky but exciting! ... and I seriously didn't know who the culprit was 'till the near end. Took about a whole day to complete (w/o online help). Again, 10/10!

                      This game was amazing! I have no strikes against it at all, which is shocking because I usually have at least one! Good job HeR!

                        In all honesty...

                        If I could give this game an 11 I would
                        I have no complaints or dislikes with this game,
                        HER has really redeemed themselves 'cause
                        I honestly didn't really favor the last two (even
                        though I love all ND games:). I just love CAP!
                        It has the perfect amount of everything that I
                        look for in a ND game

                          Caught out by the Curse

                          I gave this game an 7/10. It earned the 7 by yes, returning to the old nd game having fantastic graphics, characters, settings, music, etc. but it lost the 3 firstly because the game was, in my opinion, too short and that made it hard to really develop a broad and comprehensive understanding of the game. Secondly, there were some periods in the game where life in general became a little slow and disappointing. Thirdly, the ending was appalling. one of the worst ever. The culprit's motives were as transparent as they were unlikely and that made it hard for the responder to fell a sense of satisfaction post game. Finally, the game left a great deal of questions unanswered such as; what really happened to all the girls? why was the necklace significant? why the campsite?

                          In conclusion I truly believe that the captive curse is a step in the right direction for HER. A great game with one or two major flaws.

                          I really enjoyed a glimpse into germany and I marvel at the experience of Nancy Drew . x

                            This game was very very good. I gave it a 9. I loved the snooping, beautiful scenery, good characters, puzzles that didn't give you a headache and related to the mystery, the old Nancy Drew feel as some of my favorite games (CUR, TRT). A very good job and hope there are more like this one to come! Thanks HeR!!

                            Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake
                            Danger on Deception Island
                            Secret of Shadow Ranch
                            Curse of Blackmoor Manor
                            Treasure in the Royal Tower
                            Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon
                            The White Wolf of Icicle Creek
                            Legend of the Crystal Skull
                            The Phantom of Venice
                            The Haunting of Castle Malloy
                            Warnings at Waverly Acadamy
                            Shadow at the Water's Edge
                            The Captive Curse

                              i really loved this game! I will agree though, that i wish there had been more explanations and follow ups on certain things which i wont list here, but yall know what i mean. It definitely was going back toward the feel of some of the older games (if only there had been the stacked book menu, lol). and i do agree with the person who said i wish there had been other shops open to see. other than that though..WELL WORTH the price, the time, etc. ALSO i have to say this game had alot more humor than the others, i laughed alot thru this game! the beginning with Lukas letting you in, a certain letter as read per Frank, lol, etc). some things said by Ned...lol. bloopers...
                              definitely worth buying.
