    Phantom of Venice





    Hello! Thank you for clicking on my review! Please feel free to post your thoughts and maybe tell me a few things that I might have missed.




    Plot:
    This is one of the best plots Her Interactive has had! The Italian police need your help trying to find a phantom that has been stealing art pieces. Going undercover and putting on wigs and such was really fun. A plot that has never been used before! Her Interactive did a really good job!
    Plot rating: 10/10


    Characters:
    Okay for some reason these characters just didn’t seem to fit. I will explain each one:

    Colin Baxter: He was always trying to get you (Nancy) to be his girlfriend. He was boring and not at all like I had imagined him when I had seen the trailers. He just sort of seemed, like he didn’t fit. I always dreaded talking to him.

    Margherita Fauberg: For some reason she was the only character I liked! She was rude and mean but for some reason she fit.

    Enrico Tazza: Enrico was fun to talk to… and he wouldn’t talk to you unless you played a game of SCOPA. I liked the game SCOPA so I liked talking to Enrico. He is one of my favorite characters. (Just to let you know… if you think you’ve mastered SCOPA think again… playing it in the game is nothing like the mini game)

    Helena Burg: She was ok… for some reason she annoyed me. But that’s ok I didn’t talk to her much. I only talked to her if I had to.
    Character rating: 8/10


    Setting:
    Venice is just so beautiful! It is so real when you play it... its just WOW! Now that I went there in a Nancy Drew game I definitely want to really go there! They did really good with making it real!
    Setting rating: 10/10


    Snooping:
    In The Phantom of Venice you don’t really snoop a lot. You only snoop in Fango’s office and his office is kind of boring. You can go through other peoples stuff too but the only major snooping was in Fango’s office.
    Snooping rating: 6/10


    Graphics:
    Her Interactive has done a great job with the graphics! I mean you can see the characters breath! Congrats to Her for doing very well with all the graphics.
    Graphics rating: 10/10


    Phone Friends:
    In The Phantom of Venice you cannot call Bess and George. Instead you can call Ned Nickerson and Joe Hardy for hints. One other person you can call is Prudence Rutherford. She doesn’t give hints she only talks… I always put off calling her because of her voice! (If you played Danger by Design you will know what I mean!)
    Phone Friends rating: 4/10


    Second Chances:
    Hahaha! I loved getting a second chance! Yes! Because whenever you did get a second chance there were these funny things that they say (probably to make you not feel bad). Like: “The Good News” and “The Bad News”. Some of them were really funny.
    Second Chance rating: 7/10


    Beginning:
    When you start off and hit “New Game” it starts off at the end of the game then Nancy starts to think “It was great waking up in Venice” and goes to Nancy waking up. I thought that was a great idea! It really got me kind of scared and ready to play the game.
    Beginning rating: 7/10


    Ending:
    The ending was exiting! Really kind of different but it was one of those where you watch it and Nancy kind of tells you what happened. Not my favorite but it was really good.
    Ending rating: 6/10


    Other Things:
    Ok this game was way too easy. When I play a Nancy Drew Game I always write down the things that I had needed help on. For this game my “hints” were less then half a page! I was hoping this game would be hard and it would take me a while to do. But it only took me a day! I started at around 10am and ended at 8pm! (I stopped to each lunch and dinner so that probably takes off an hour or two.)

    This game was fun though. It was exiting learning some Italian words and eating gelato! Yum!
    Other Things rating: 4/10



    Overall Game Rating: 7/10





    Thank you for reading my review! I would recommend playing it on senior for the players who have played a lot of other Nancy Drew games, and playing it on junior for those of you who are new to Nancy Drew games.

    Good Review! Reeeeeeeps.

    I agreed on the snooping part...I felt like I barely could snoop through anything. And I wish we could call Bess and George...and Ned/Hardy Boys never could even give us clues.

        No problem.

        In the game, I also wished that you could do something with the gellato or whatever that ice cream stuff was called.

          You said that you thought the game was easy. Did you go to HER for hints/spoilers? Did you play on Junior level?

              I agree!

              I agree with the oringinal post 100 %. They were totally right about how they rated everything.

              Choose your friends by their character and your socks by their color. Choosing your socks by their character makes no sense, and choosing your friends by their color is unthinkable.

                  I thought that this was a great game to move onto senior level. I only came onto the internet about 4 or so times to get help (that IS a record for me! :) Sometimes, the internet is a little TOO helpful if you know what I mean. I keep hearing the Jr. level was too easy, so I am glad that I moved on. I thought that this game was great too!
                  Oh,,,great review!

                    I agree 100%! Although most of it was easy, I must admit I got stuck about 2-3 times, mostly because half the time I didn't know what to do at all. I wish there were more phone friends and I wish we could've at least spoken to Fango, because I had the feeling that it was kind of strange spying on someone you don't even know (besides a couple of details). Like you said, Mystery Girl'95, I also wish you had something to do with the gelato, besides waste your Euros. It would be nice if you had to deliver a certain flavor to a character.

                    Anyway, great review! I award you reps!
                    I'm [thinking] about you...

                    ...like [Joe Hardy] thinks about {cheeseburgers}

                      Great one

                      One of the best reviews I've seen. Very neatly done, and accurate.

                      I played the game on Senior mode the first time, but didn't notice much difference when I played it the second time on Junior.

                      Reps for you! I can't give much, but I'll give what I can.
