Writing a Review

Now that there are 32 Nancy Drew games available, it is an excellent time write some game reviews! There are a few great places to write reviews on our site: the message boards, where avid game players go to share their opinion among fellow fans, and the games pages, where you can share your opinion and strangers new to the games can review it before choosing to get it or a different game.


When writing a review, you can format and word it however you desire! But in case you have no idea where to start, here are a few ideas:

1. The Mystery — tell us! Was the mystery clever and fun, or difficult to understand? Were the clues sufficient in leading you to a grand conclusion?

2. The Story — Was the story interesting? Fun? Did it make sense?

3. The Characters — Did you like the characters? Even characters that you liked to hate? Were they fun, suspicious, intriguing?

4. The Puzzles — Were they relevant to the mystery? Too hard or too easy on the level you played? Were there too many or too few?

5. Graphics and Animation — Did the game look good? Were the cinematics (animated scenes) fun and help tell the story?

6. The Thrill — Did any parts of the game give you a good scare? Any parts that put you on the edge of your seat? Did you feel a sense of danger or urgency?

There are other things you can rate the game on, too! Like the music, difficulty, dialogue, historical story, phone friends, comparisons to other games, knowing what to do next, things to learn in the game, etc.

We love hearing your thoughts! We read each review and comments, and take into consideration these things as a whole to see what the majority of our fans really like, so that we make future games accessible, fun, authentic, and bring Nancy Drew to life as much as the 21st century allows.

Thanks for writing your reviews if you already have!

The official Preview for ND#33 is up on our YouTube channel this week.

    I truly loved this game, and declared it my favorite! It had a mystery, it had adventure, and it had Tumi! I loved each character’s unique personality. If anyone out there is looking for an awesome video game, this is the one!

    I think it is horrific that I have downloaded 3 games that will not work (after 2 downloads that did) and despite repeatedly calling technical support during the “6 hours” they are open each week, I have yet to speak to someone or receive a return e-mail or receive a phone call. Basically I have just donated money to a company who refuses to contact me, not to mention the countless hours I have spent trying to fix the game from online instructions. I will call and demand a refund from the customer service department, but they are at a loss as to why no one will call me back despite repeated messages. I really want to play the games – it is unfortunate you sell a product you are unwilling to stand behind or put someone in the tech support department.
