Game Story

Nancy Drew®: The Shattered Medallion

No One is Immune to Sudden Death on this Reality TV Show! Ever since the Secret of the Scarlet Hand, the eccentric Sonny Joon always seemed a step ahead of Nancy Drew. That changes when Nancy and George travel to New Zealand and compete in the hit reality TV contest, Pacific Run. Sonny runs the show, but it’s spiraling out of control. Are the mishaps the result of cheating competitors or something beyond this world? Win big to uncover the truth!

"Nancy Drew is one of the longest running gaming franchises with a female protagonist, second only to Barbie. Nancy Drew’s longevity, financial success, and unanticipated breadth of appeal argues that a primary female character is no hindrance to a videogame series and might in fact be an asset. Although some developers would like to convince us that the work needed to provide the option of playing as a woman is too difficult, for 16 years Her Interactive has built a truly singular female lead." -- Kill Screen Daily

“Nancy Drew: The Shattered Medallion is another solid Nancy Drew title for Her Interactive. This is their thirtieth mainline Personal Computer Nancy Drew video game. Here is to them reaching forty.” -- Family Friendly Gaming

“The puzzles are this game’s bread and butter, and they live up to every standard. I quite enjoyed the challenge of some of them, the submarine puzzle being a particular favorite. Also, I cannot remember the last time I had to take out notepaper and write down all of the clues so that I wouldn't miss an essential bit of information, but I had to do it for this game.” -- Killeen Daily Herald

“This game is different from the other games because it is an adventure rather than a mystery.  The game has a very scripted feel to it, although this is logical since the game follows the stages of a reality show.  I enjoyed playing this game just like I have all the others.” -- Series Books for Girls

"The characters you interact with are an interesting crew. In most of these games, I usually hit up characters for information on whatever case I’m trying to solve and ignore topics that are clearly irrelevant. But I found myself exhausting my conversation options with many of the characters in The Shattered Medallion. You spend a good chunk of the game trying to get a feel for each contestant, and sometimes the best way to do that is to simply talk to them about anything and everything." -- Gaming Discourse

“This game was a special treat for home-school and it took us about 4 nights to beat the entire game. But that's because once you start playing, you just can't stop. It really is so addicting that you'll end up loosing track of time!” -- Our Whiskey Lullaby

“All in all, I definitely enjoyed playing Nancy Drew:  The Shattered Medallion. It’s a little different from previous games but I still found it to be fun and challenging to complete.  If you’re looking for something fun for tweens/teens (or yourself) to do this summer, I definitely recommend Nancy Drew:  The Shattered Medallion Game.” -- In Our Spare Time

"Hooray for thirty games full of mysteries! Nancy Drew still does the trick and combines mindbreaking puzzles with quite nice graphics and music. Although this game might have been more chaotic, it still gives you the pleasure of finding the answer on the smart riddles and hidden clues. The story isn’t that “scary” this time, but you’ll have your “oh damn” moments!" -- 3rd Strike

"Nancy Drew: The Shattered Medallion’s amazingly funny characters, fascinating dialog and New Zealand setting are fantastic." -- Video Games and the Bible

"The ultimate goal is to be the team who gets all those medallion pieces first so the race is on! Oh and you get to finally learn more about the mysterious Sonny Joon! I really enjoyed the variety of race locations and the puzzles.  As I said this game has a different vibe than any of the other Nancy Drew games and was really different, but in a good way." -- Check It Out! (Blog)

"For this adventure Nancy is hanging-out in the great outdoors – New Zealand to be specific. It doesn't start out as a mystery – but you know Nancy – wherever she is, something nefarious will require her attention." -- Games4Women

this is the first ND game I regretted purchasing. the plot is not well thought out, the puzzles are boring, the people are boring, the whole thing was just horrible to be honest. LOVE most of ND's game but this one def missed the mark (by ten million ft)

 by Celena

This Nancy Drew game definitely ranked as one of my least favorite ND games EVER. You are thrown into the story with no real plot, (you have to figure it out as you go along), the characters are predictable and stagnant, the whole time it's just one game after another with no real plot development, then there's the ending. The ending was so bad it left me saying "what the heck was that?!". This ND game is simply not up to par with others, it feels like it was rushed together with no thought.

Different than the others

Despite the lack of mystery and insipid characters (other than Sonny), I still enjoyed this one. It's fairly easy, and quite different from the others because you're on a game show, and basically just trying to decipher what's going on behind the scenes. I wish they addressed the connection with Sonny Joon more, but otherwise I really enjoyed the puzzles and mini games. Raid is awesome!

Soon Joon is Red Hot like Pizza Supper

OM Goodness. Sonny Joon what a hunk of a man. He is HAWWWT. Whoo. First, those hips. Whoa. And then that muscular arms of his. I am sweating up a bucket. And his hair is multi-colored. Talk about attractive, babeh. Whoo, if he was a real man I would date the heck outta that son. I mean Herinteractve has never created a more handsome character with such FINE features and a supremely FINE voice, that's so low and smoove it should be illegal. Rowr.

Other Reviews Say it All

I cannot say anything here which has not already been said by other reviewers. Please do not waste your time on this game. I miss the "Whodunit" aspect of older Nancy Drew games; MED has hardly any plot whatsoever, barely any mystery, and is nothing more than puzzle after puzzle. The dialogue is disjointed and filled with non-sequiturs, which was incredibly frustrating. The big reveal of Sonny Joon was a sheer letdown, as there is never any acknowledgement of the fact that you have been following him around throughout the history of the game series. I used to think Kapu Cave was the worst ND game; it's MED, by a long shot. Don't play this.

 by Guinevere

I am a HUGE fan of Nancy Drew games, and have played almost all of them. Sadly, I have to say this one really disappointed me. It wasn't even really a mystery, more of a puzzle. I would have been fine with this, but the storyline and ending where very confusing. I wish the ending could have gone into more details.
On a good note, the graphics were amazing as always, and I loved Sonny and Patrick (although his character confused me a bit too).

So Boring

So incredibly boring. From Characters to story line, and even puzzles this game lacked all the way around. I'd even considering removing this from their line up all together and pretending like it never even happened. Save your money and skip this one; you won't regret not purchasing.

 by NanFan

This game was very disappointing. The characters were shallow, the story was odd and unsatisfying, and overall I would not suggest purchasing this particular Nancy Drew game.

 by A

I thought this game was really fun! very light. It's definitely different from most in that it's less of a mystery. I thought the puzzles were a lot of fun and I liked the story overall. There are a couple mysterious plots but mostly it's kind of just competing on the game show and along the way you discover some stuff that could be suspicious. Not so much solving a mystery but you're still solving puzzles and looking for clues like every game. I thought it was very entertaining and interesting. If you like every other Nancy Drew game like me you will like it, if you only like the "scary" ones you probably won't like it. I'd take this over horrifying mirror ghost girl from Shadow at Water's Edge any day 🙂
