Thanks for the thoughtful review eikone,and welcome to Gameboomers! I just finished this game, and agree with you in many ways. I thought it a shame with a locale as rich in promise as New Orleans, it was unfortunate that the game didn't reach into more areas. But I felt the atmosphere was right, and I had more fun with it than I've had with a Nancy since Blackmoor, although I didn't play White Wolf. Except for maybe the bowling puzzle - argggh. lol

Thanks eikone for an interesting review of the game - I haven't got round to playing this or White Wolf yet but good to know that you think they are an improvement on the previous 4 games, although I did like Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon. smile

I have never played any of the Nancy Drew games, I'm a hidden object fanatic actually. What would be a good Nancy Drew game to begin with?

Patty -- you'll find lots of Nancy Drew fans here, and many different favorites!

Personally, I would suggest starting with Last Train to Blue Moon Canyon.

I play all the ND games in order, but I suggest if you do that, start with #2 since the 1st one is nothing like the rest of the series. I have to play 16 & 17 yet.

I haven't play many ND games. This is my second one. The first was Curse of the Blackmoore Manor and i was truly disappointed. I liked Crystal Skull. The best think for me was the puzzles. Not hard but not easy either. I stuck only in one part of the game and it wasn't in a puzzle. And i agree the locations were very limited. I think after playing this game i'll start search for the previous ones to play them too... smile
