Beyond a Shadow of a Doubt

The first reviews from our scariest adventure game, Nancy Drew: Shadow at the Water's Edge are just starting to come in.  These are some very dedicated fans overnighted the game and then spent the day playing non-stop so they could get a review for the game up.  Judging by these reviews, this game will probably make the top 3 favorite Nancy Drew games on your list.  The reviewers loved the snooping, the characters, and the ending!  Some have even hailed it as returning to 'classic' Nancy Drew – something that many people have said to be missing from our recent games.  While not every game is everyone's favorite, we think this one might have a shot at becoming the new reigning favorite, usurping Curse of Blackmoor Manor.  But we'll see once we get more fan reviews in…

Here are exerpts from the reviews on our free online gaming community. Check out the review section to read the reviews in full.

Fantastic, definitely at the high end of my favorites. We really got what we wanted with this game, no big complaints 😀shadow at the water’s edge :; 10 /10



Overall: 9.5/10
SAW was a great ND game! Totally in my top 3. This game had everything: puzzles, a great story line, characters and snooping. In my opininon this game is 10000 times better then TOT. This game brought classic Nancy Drew back for me.


Overall: ★★★★★ (5/5)

After all of the worrying that HER was losing their touch and they were over-hyping the scariness, I wasn't expecting too much from them. I was definitely excited, but didn't want to get my hopes up. I was pretty shocked then, when I played it and it was absolutely fantastic!! I don't think anyone will be disappointed. It was 100% their scariest game, IMO. There wasn't any constant random hauntings like in MHM, but there was some legit scary stuff that happened. It was one of HER's recent best, and I'd say, one of the best in the series. I'd reccomend it to anyone who's a fan of the scary games, or Nancy Drew games in general. ♥


There were many secrets to be unveiled! It is very engaging and you just wont want to stop! HeR really has listened and I cannot wait until everyone else plays it too!
