  • The Masked Thief (Spoiler Free!)


    My first review, but who cares ! Lets just get down to it!

    Gameplay: 8
    The length of game play for me was similar to White Wolf. The puzzles are a bit easy, but it goes along very well with the storyline.

    Graphics: 8.5
    I personally thought the graphics improved since Crystal Skull. When Nancy does her default talking, there is actually expression coming from the characters, and the beautiful Venice scenery is definitely a plus.

    Characters: 9
    The characters were very unique and cute in this game. One of characters actually made me laugh with his passion for mosaics, and definitely don't miss out talking on the phone with Prudence and Ned, especially Ned. They provide some funny moments

    Sound: 8
    Beautiful music that upholds the Venice atmosphere

    Add-Ons: 8.5
    There are definitely extra things you can keep an eye out for in this game, like our good old Easter Egg hunt and lots more. After reading the forums, I would advise you to sit through the credits when your done

    Scariness: 6
    If your looking for a thriller, then this particular segment might disappoint you.

    Overall: 8.5
    I liked this game. I thought it was a fresh change from the usually dark, spooky cases that Nancy always works on. This particular installment is light and funny at times. Even though it still doesn't live up to Blackmoor yet, it is still worth playing

            I very much agree with your review and I enjoyed the game perhaps more than most of the other gamers because I am actually from Italy and visit Venice quite frequently. I also loved the gondoliers that sang to you, I thought that was a fabulous addition to the game and it really brought out the Venetian culture. On the contrary, I didn't appreciate the random bits of trash everywhere, as many times as I have been to Venice I have yet to see that much trash. But this definatly was a wonderful game. Love your review!

              Great Review!!! Reps!

              I am very happy to hear all the reports on how good the game is... mine is almost here, and I can't wait!
              (And constantly listening to Dean Martin for the past few days hasn't helped calm the excitement ... but I already listen to him all the time, anyway )

              I am a bit disappointed to hear that it isn't as scary as some of us where hoping it may be, but is'okay ...

              Overall, this really was an awesome review! Thanks for putting the time into making it for us!

                Yes, I loved the gondolier rides too. I have never been to Venice, but I doubted they have that much trash too .

                HAHA! Yea, I feel excited for you too. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

                Thank you both for reading my review and leaving the wonderful comments. Reps to the both of you

                          Yes, that is what I heard too, but thanks for telling me and reading my review. It is good how HER always releases the installments so closely together.
