This was one of the earliest titles in the Nancy Drew gaming franchise, the 2nd Nancy Drew game ever that I'm surprised they haven't considered remastering this like they did with Secrets Can Kill (but I'll talk about that when I talk about that) but eventually I will talk about why this should have gotten remastered as well. I first played this in late 2004, I played it again around Christmas of 2005 but..... after awhile the game broke the computer...and by that I was able to get it back out but the disk door wouldn't close, it didn't get fixed til February of 06, even so I never did play the game again


Gameplay and story: Based on the Nancy Drew files book of the same name (except once again Bess and George stay home) A soap opera star named Mattie Jensen is renting Nancy's Aunts apartment in NYC, and through that aunt, the soap star hears about Nancy's successful case in Florida (Secrets Can Kill) and requests Nancy's help into getting to the bottom of a bunch of Death Threats against her co-star Rick Arlen(because he refuses to go to the police....why?). Jensen sets her up at that Apartment and Nancy gets a visitor's pass that gets taken away after a lighting fixture nearly drops on Rick. The set gets closed to visitors and the Nancy loses her visitors pass, but Mattie finds a way around it, by arranging to make her an Extra on the Soap she has her see her agent to set her up with a job as an extra to get around the director, I could go on but I should be focusing on everything else with this game, it's almost by the book except like I said Bess and George stay home.

Graphics: The character animation goes from 2D animation to CGI and you can tell this is the first game with CGI characters where when you are looking at them it feels like Mattie and Rick had plastic surgery and the way everyone moves make them look like androids or something.

Soundtrack: I like the soundtrack in this game but sometimes I wonder if I'm at a tv studio or a supermarket, heck there are traces of John Lennon's Imagine in there.

Addictive: Well like I said I haven't played this game in years the fact that something in there broke the computer which kind of turned me off.

Depth: So unlike Secrets Can Kill this is a one disc game and that's how it is from here on out, however it's a rather short game, it can be finished in less than 2 hours

Difficulty: This is the last game that offers three levels of Difficulty which is Junior Detective, Senior Detective and Master Detective, after this they do only two levels of difficulty, and this is also the last game where Bess and George are separate numbers so we get three numbers for hints (the other one being Ned)

Overall: "Right, I forgot you're celebrating your 70th birthday next month" aren't you a smarty pants Rick, but Nancy's first mystery came out in 1930 not 1928, and the first book came out in April (yeah last year I was working on a special author of the month display for Nancy Drew as she was celebrating her 90th anniversary, but of course that had to be whittled down to a thing that my supervisor shared on Instagram. So like most of games it has the same culprit as the book.

I give this an 8
