If allowed, I'd like to take a poll on feelings about these games now. I, for one, believe I am through with them. It's a shame, because they used to be much better, more fun. Input appreciated. Thanks.

I am afraid that I too must cast my vote for no more Nancy Drew games. I don't know when it happened but for me the thrill is gone.

I loved the older games, they were adventure games. I think the newer Nancy Drew belong in the Arcade Game line-up.

Her Interactive seem to be having a problem in finding a balance with the more recent NDs. They're tending to fall into one of these three categories:

(a) Timed puzzles galore until you're screaming for mercy (Ransom), or
(b) Stuffed with puzzles but having a very weak storyline (Twister), or
(c) The story is halfway decent but the puzzles need more variety, are monotonous in some instances and/or extremely time-consuming in others. (Water's Edge)

Warnings at Waverly Academy is the strongest and most enjoyable of the recent games in the series, in my opinion. I still enjoy playing the Nancy Drews, and will continue to buy them, but they no longer excite me as they used to.

Nancy Drew Games are the ones I started with and always had anxious anticipation for the next one.
I just don't have that "feeling" anymore.
Timed puzzles are awful and the mindless chores with not enough story just makes it not worth the money and time.
I hope HER does something and listens to their customers.

Her's biggest customer base are the younger girls and they love them just the way they are. YOu can see the comments on their forum and their facebook page. They do not want them changed.

I'll also continue to buy Nancy Drew games but for me the earlier ones were better games. But I will concede that they are made for a much younger age group & us older ladies will just have to put up with what the target audience wants! cool

By "older," I'm not sure what is meant. I am not old (30's) and still don't like the change.
