  • RockUrSox CAP Review!

    Hello everyone! I'm here to make one of my reviews for The Captive Curse, #24! So here we go:

    For me, when watching the trailer, Captive Curse seemed like a set-up for a perfect plot. It had everything there! But about halfway through the game, I realized the plot wasn't very interesting at all. It just seemed... ordinary and uninteresting. I also had a good idea of who the culprit was way before the game ended, which isn't normal for me. It wasn't very educational either like other ND games. I remember when Nancy Drew games used to have the best plots, but unfortunately CAP didn't meet up to those standards for me.

    When I heard this game took place in Germany, I was excited! I always seem to enjoy Nancy's international mysteries! The castle was beautiful, and very large too! I enjoyed walkng through the castle's secret passageways and large courtyard. But as I went through the game, I started to get a little bored with the castle which made me want to leave Castle Finster and explore outside of it. I was a little let down when I found out I couldn't leave. But in the end, the setting that was given to me was beautiful, and I enjoyed it!


    I really enjoyed the characters in this game. They were fun, interesting, and very unique! I most of all enjoyed Lukas and his wacky antics. Karl was fun to talk to, and Anja was nice to talk to too. I also found Renate very interesting. Some of the stuff Renate said really stuck with me, and she had a lot to say. I have to say the characters really impressed me, and I hope to see more characters like that in future games.


    In the end, I found the music to be quite suiting for a game like this (a castle in Germany!) Sometimes i would even stop and listen to it because it sounded so interesting. Music is always an important part of games because it sets the mood. And I think the music did just that!


    I'm sad to say that there weren't that many puzzles in this game for me. And the puzzles that were there were pretty easy for me. Don't get me wrong, there were puzzles in this game I struggled on, but not as many as past games had. Usually for puzzles I would have to write things down, think about them, and hopefully my answer will be right. But in this game I didn't have to do that. I pretty much did everything in my head. That's actually a disappointment for me. But one thing that made me happy was that there were new types of puzzles for me to solve that I never saw before. That's always a great thing to see!

    Game Length:
    This game seemed very short for me, even though it was my first time playing it and I was really taking my time. I was actually a little disappointed I got through the game so fast. I was hoping it would last me a while.

    Scare Factor:

    I didn't find this game to be that scary. You'd think a castle with a monster in Germany would be pretty scary, but that wasn't the case for me. There were times I would get excited and be like, "Oh, cool! The monster!" But I wasn't scared. I don't know if HeR meant this game to be scary, but if they did, it didn't work.

    All in all, I thought this game was pretty interesting. It's not my favorite game, but it also isn't my least favorite. In the end, I thought this was a so-so game, nothing really special. But there were parts I really enjoyed.

    Overall I give this game a

    definition: that crazy girl that laughs too much.
