AVOID, AVOID, AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!
I spent $30 on this yesterday. Now, despite the fact that the DS appears to be perfectly capable of supporting decent PC adventure games, I wasn't expecting anything up to the level of the Nancy Drew series on the PC.
I was expecting a pleasant 8-10 hour diversion with logical puzzles and a few irritating errand type games (cooking in Icicle Creek, I'ma lookin at you). And, you know, an actual mystery.
What I got was spoon fed pap (seriously, the game just takes you straight from one location to the next- you don't even get to choose), no mystery, and instead of actual touch screen puzzles (like say in Trace Memory) I got irritating little minigames instead. And even worse, I got about 3 hours of game play before I'd finished it all.
I know it was designed as a kiddie game, but really, even for a kiddie game, 3 hours of gameplay is entirely unacceptable.
Do not spend your money on this game. I'm all for Nancy Drew on the DS, but not like this. This was just insulting to my intelligence.
I'm very disappointed.
