        This was one of HeR's best games... and I'm not even sure I can think of a game that comes close to the quality of this one, honestly, from ALL perspectives. Everyone did a great job!! You all have clearly been seriously considering the improvements suggested to you by fans, thank you.

            I played an amateur detective and I thought that the puzzles incorporated were pleasantly fun (and some were quite difficult when you had to piece the entire puzzle together); you really had to pay attention to detail since many things that you encounter will show up in a later puzzle.

            The characters? Def. had personality although the phone characters talked a little too much for my liking. Wish there was a way to cut them off and get them to get with the program sooner.

            Setting/Scenery? Amazing! Navigating the setting was easy and fun; I also like the new interface. The tomb/pyramid detail was beautifully done.

            So, without getting into too much detail and rambling on, I gave the game a 10; you can tell a lot of work was put into creating it and I give credit where credit is due.

              I thought TMB was a great game and I'd be thrilled if all future games were of the same quality. Personally, I reserve 10 for what I consider to be masterpieces, and this didn't quite reach that level. If there were a few, mostly small changes, it could have been a 10/10, though.

                This was a really fun game and what made it so great to me was the depth of the characters this time. There was more conversation with them, it felt like, and talking to the characters is one of the best part of the games.

                  10!

                  The drama surrounding the downloads not withstanding, I was very impressed. You did it again, HeR. Way to go!

                    And my answer is...10:)

                    I thought that TMB was a great game filled with challanging puzzles and riddles and I didn't have to find too many spoilers online. The setting and plot was amazing, though it felt a bit as if the ending came really quickly, but I suppose that was because I was so immersed in the game. I loved every second of it!

                    I hope the next game does justice to this game and its teaser trailer!

                        I decided to give the game a ten even though I was a bit iffy over a few things, but over all I really enjoyed playing so I thought it was deserving of my rating.

                        Setup:
                        I really like the new setup and I hope they keep it. I did not like the old book setup, it was just boring. The desk set up was nice, I did like how she had things from other cases on her desk, and the scrap book but not needed. Having to go through her whole intro every time got annoying. So the new setup is good.

                        Characters:
                        For the most part, I liked the characters. Jamilla I found mysterious and was never sure of how innocent she was. Abdullah I found to be quite into himself lol Lily bugged me. Quite mean and bossy. Dylan just seemed like the typical handsome guy lol (LOVED his voice) and Jon seemed very nice. OMG I do have to say that I did NOT like having to call Hotchkiss, she's just so spacey! As for Sonny, I like how he came up again, I was wondering if I'd see him and was kind of disappointed when I didn't but I like him as a re-occurring mysterious character you never see :)

                        Graphics:
                        I really liked the graphics, I thought they were quite good. Definitely much better than some of the older games.


                        Game play:
                        Overall game play was pretty good. I really liked the puzzles and the tunnels. I was a bit disappointed that I couldn't wander more around camp. Ending came a bit quick. I like the hint hotline but no Ned at all?!

                        Hm...lost my train of thought...Was a really good game, I wish I wasn't done already but liked it so much I'm thinking of starting over and playing again!

                              I really really enjoyed the puzzles in the game. Especially the hieroglyph translating puzzles! Sometimes I felt that the game moved slowly though-- you had to be in pretty specific places at times to trigger the next event and this sometimes proved to be frustrating. Overall though, this will be a game that I will play over and over again, just like pretty much every other Nancy Drew game.

                              I love that Professor Hotchkiss and Sonny Joon were in the game!
