    I was so excited when I received my game yesterday, and like everyone, I couldn't wait to get started! I am hugely disappointed. I've played every ND game, some over and over, but this is awful, IMO. I cannot make any progress, and am almost to the point of not caring. The game is dark, extremely claustrophobic, and all the characters are angry and rude. For the first time ever, I wish I could get my money back.

      I thought this was a great game! There was a good amount of puzzles, a lot of places to explore even though the whole game was in one building, and better character interaction than a lot of the more recent games. This one gets a 10 from me!

        8

        Based on my overall first impression of this game... I'd give it an 8!

        Tons of puzzles. Lots of great, in game hints. TONS of plot twists and turns.

        Only negative was lack of character interaction. Some were much more important than others and so were talked to more.
        Also, the puzzles did have a distinct "science-y" feel to them. Which is great and everything, and clearly what was to be expected, but just not really my thing.

        Really enjoyed it overall. Playing was a great experience!

          I did not like this game because of the huge number of obscure instruments. As soon as I walked into the lab, horrified. I am not a physicist. What is the oscillator, I faintly imagine.

          I was also annoyed by the job on time. Very difficult to arrange the slides on the computer for a while, which is given to players. Particularly at the senior detective.

          Endless riding the elevator up to vertigo. Stupid game Aggregation.
          Maze on time. Final puzzle on time.

          No intrigue. Just a lot of devices.

          In general, this is one of the least successful games.

          3 (three).

            I gave it a 7. Definitely a good game, but not quite up there with the best. Kind of a random number, but an 8 felt like too much and 6 felt too low. So I'd say a 7. I enjoyed the game, but I felt that there were way too many puzzles and confusing scientific things that I couldn't understand without the strategy guide. I'll have to replay it again and see how I feel about it the second time around, a lot of times I warm up to a game after replaying it. But my initial reaction is that it's a 7 for me. To be honest, just the phone messages Nancy gets from the Hardy Boys after the credits were enough for me to almost bump this up to an 8. I know, I'm ridiculous. But yeah. I'd say it was a good, solid game. Not amazing, and I had a few problems with it, but overall it was fun for me and I felt like HER had been listening closely to our suggestions.

                Fun and Educational Game

                I loved this game! It was the first I've ever played on master detective, and I enjoyed the challenge. I got frustrated at some points, but the game lasted longer than any of the other games have for me, and I had fun the whole time.

                I also want to add that I had absolutely no problems downloading the game this time. I was playing the game in less than an hour from the time the download was available. It was a very pleasant surprise :)

                    I absolutely adore this game, which is a real shocker. I give it a rating of 10/10!

                      I gave it a ten. It's been the best in a while. So good.

                        I gave it a 10 as well! This game was absolutely awesome!! The plot, the setting, the characters, the music, the puzzles, the snooping, everything!!
                        The Deadly Device has clearly been added to my favorite ND games!

                          I really enjoyed this game. The graphics were awesome, the plot was interesting, and the music was intense. I really enjoyed this plot because there has only ever been one other Nancy Drew murder mystery, and that gave the game a real sense of danger and adventure. The characters were all up to par with normal Nancy characters, cooky and interesting. Although, the game was a but predictable. The plot twists didn't surprise me as many past games have. I also did not like having hints in the check list. I found I used them too much and it took away some of the accomplishment I felt when I finished a puzzle. I also didn't like that it took place only inside. I enjoy the games better when you can leave and have a larger place to explore. Overall, this was a great game! It was fun, challenging, I learned a lot, which is what I believe these games are about.

                            to #2, Sleuth Mom

                            I can totally relate. I have not been able to finish the Oriental One. I've tried several times, my kids have tried and even a close friend. We get to the secret bath, and do the .... "puzzle" but Nan never says anything and the little door to the last clue never opens. I know who did it and why (looked it up on Youtube - I am about 3 total steps from the end). So I understand about not being able to finish. Very Frustrating.

                            I've not played this game yet, it's ordered and I'm waiting. It's been 4 days now, and the others all came within 2-4 days, but now it's late and I'll have to wait until Monday (assuming it comes this weekend) as I work weekends.... *sigh* it's all good, I'll get to play it eventually...and add it to the rest of my games (I have all and have played all, excluding the Oriental one, have completed all). :-)

                              I agree with you Blackcat 10! I thought the game was dull and I too disliked Aggregation-Aggravation! I am hoping that the next game will go back to being kind of gloomy and scary instead of "high tech". I gave the game a "2".
