I think Keepsake is similar, and Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches they are not exactly detective, but you do alot of detecting.. I think the Carol Reed Games are great too, she is a detective, Marcia

I played the Hardy Boys, both the hidden object one and the other one (not the DS one though). They were okay, but I feel Nancy outdoes them easily. They were nice to play whilst waiting for a new Nancy Drew game...
I've played the Hardy Boys adventure, The Hidden Theft, a couple of times. It's not a bad game, quite enjoyable, although a little glitchy. I don't know if there's a patch to fix the disappearing inventory items problem which I ran into. It has some interesting puzzles. Similar to Nancy Drew but not as good as.
