“…I had lots of fun playing it. It’s an excellent diversion from the longer games out there, and doesn’t ask a serious investment of your time or money, both of which are increasingly scarce commodities. I’m very excited to see where HI and Infogrames will take the new adventures of Nancy Drew!” ~Adventure Gamers
“There is very little software available for post-Barbie aged girls, and what exists is, for the most part, as shallow and insubstantial as a “Teen” magazine. The Nancy Drew mystery series is a major exception. These titles challenge girls to be bold, clever and persistent — much like the heroine herself.” ~SuperKids
“However, it is an excellent game for its target audience and an enjoyable romp for older Nancy Drew fans in a nostalgic mood. It is also a good game for any beginning adventurer. It follows the spirit of the book series, making it a good addition to the franchise.” ~Adventure Classic Gaming

This is one of my favorites to this day and I first bought it when it came out in 1999, but I cannot play it on my new computer and would LOVE if it was remastered! The plot was perfect and it had so many characters!
This is one of the first games that I played when I discovered Nancy Drew, and it remains one of the best. I've replayed it a several times over the years. I'm so glad we're finally able to purchase it again! The puzzles, characters, and story-line are fun and engaging. This is one of the games where you need your own notebook or scratch-pad to follow along, which makes it even more fun!
This is the first Nancy Drew game I ever played and, having played them all, it remains my favourite. I just replayed it and it has really stood the test of time. Yes, the animation is dated but the story is so great! It is action packed! SO much stuff happens and there are so many characters. I wish the newer Nancy Drews were more like this one!
This was one of my favorite Nancy Drew games I played as a child, I absolutely loved it! It doesn't work with my new computer and I miss it so much. I wish I could play it again!
This was such a phenomenal game. Unfortunately, I can't find it ANYWHERE since it was discontinued. Please make a remastered version! It was so good!
This was the best of them all--one of my favourite games to play as a child. I've attempted again and again to install the old game on my computer, but to no avail. I wish this could be remastered so I could play it again!
As I am getting older I have wanted to go back to the older games of nancy drew. One big problem they are not for Macs. Kind of makes me a little sad since i only have a mac but I am really hoping that they will make them available and remastered. Just wanted to comment because I love the games so much but the past 3 or so years i haven't been able to play before the Trail Of The Twister.
I've been playing these games with my best friend since we were pretty young kids! A great way to spend a rainy day, I think! Anyway this has to be my favorite game of all time!
As another review said, I would love to see this game remastered. I think it is great and perfect and the music is stunning.
This was one of my favorite games. Very disappointed that you discontinued it. I can understand HerInteractive has other newer games to release.But I like to see this one return. I think all the older games should be remastered. They seem more fun than these newer ones.
