  • I enjoyed this game, but I must admit, I was disappointed at how short it was. I finished it in about two straight hours of playing it, but nonetheless, it was still a good game. For the first time I managed to finish the time trial puzzles without asking for help or taking way too many tries. It was very exciting and I always had an idea what to do next. I really liked how excited I got about the game at some points. When I would find something locked, I just couldn't wait to open it! I enjoyed this game very much and suggest it to beginner sleuths who would like an easier game to start with or even to more advanced detectives who would like to enjoy the thrill of it.

    I rated the game Seven out of Ten

    • I gave it a 7/10. The plot was solid, the characters were well developed, and it was a fun game, although it was a bit lacking. It was too short and easy, and there weren't enough places to go. It's a fun game, although it doesn't stand out among the others.

      • I thought this game was good and I liked the plot but I found one of the games that you needed to play WAY too hard, I absolutely hated it...but other than that, the game was really good and I thought the whole "rides running by themselves" thing was really cool.

        • First game that I did without help from a walkthrough

          So this was the first game that I was able to do without a walkthrough, and I was so excited. This game was super interesting to me, but was really easy, so I finished it in about 4 hours. Other than that, I loved how everyone had a secret (like in all Nancy Drew games) but this game was just all together fun.

          • Eh...

            Eh..this game was ok. It was kinda fun but boring. And it was pretty easy. 5/10

            • I liked this game!! It was pretty easy but it's good if you want a really quick game!! 7/10:

              • This was probably not one of my favourite ND games. One thing I find really interesting about playing these games is learning about the history of the places you are investigating, things that happened in the past, and learning about maybe family secrets or other people that lived there, such as in Ghost dogs, Shadow ranch, Blackmoor manor and many others, and I think Haunted Carousel lacked that a bit.
                It was also quite easy, I finished it in a really short time!
                However I liked the characters, learning about Joy's past was interesting!!
                I gave it a 6.

                • pros and cons

                  PROS:
                  -yay theme parks!
                  -the whole idea of a haunted theme park
                  -omigosh the MUSIC!
                  -I loved the carousel organ
                  -learning about the workings of a carousel
                  -had some exciting points
                  -intriguing plot
                  -snooping was good

                  CONS:
                  -Joy and Miles. I found the robot very hard to believe, and Joy was just a drag.
                  -too short
                  -too easy (really good for beginners though)
                  -wasn't as eerie as thought it would be
                  -felt somewhat cramped
                  -didn't much like the ocean theme
                  -I was hoping I could actually ride the rollercoaster
                  -the carousel itself was puny and not as cool as thought it would be

                  7/10
                  meh, it was alright, a little too short and limited. I would've given it a 6, but I was really fascinated with the info on carousels and the music was pretty awesome.

                  • Too easy

                    This game was the first ND that I played that I didn't need a walkthrough to use or having to get Hints from the Message Boards. This game is literally just that easy and simple.

                    It wasn't necessarily my favorite, because it was so short and easy. But I do tend to play it quite a lot whenever I'm between games and need a quick Nancy Drew fix, it sure does fix it

                    • It was kind of too easy...not much gameplay space either. And Nancy spent more time finding Joy's past than doing anything that would help find the saboteur.

                          • game #8 review

                            This was my first nancy drew game and it was a great game to start with. Good plot, good graphics, and great music.

                            I would like to give this a score of 7 out of 10

                            • Loved it!

                              10/10
                              This was my first ND game. My mom and dad got it for me when i was still young enough to be called a kid. They test played it before giving it to me though. I love carousels so it really interested me. I can't say it was short though because i finish all my ND games usually in the first few hours after installment.

                              • 6/10

                                Just replayed this game for the first time in years and I was surprised by how short it was; I finished it within a few hours. The characters are rather lackluster compared to those of later games, and I wish I could have snooped more and actually experienced the different attractions of the park.

                                It is charming nonetheless, and I very much enjoyed the arcade games and ordering food at the hotel. :) I didn't need much help from the Message Board, but I suppose that's a good thing! Definitely ideal for beginners... Some good puzzles and snooping, as well as a few scares and very old-game style spooky places!
