Nancy Drew: Alibi In Ashes

A local contest turns into an arson scene and now deceit smolders among the charred ruins of the River Heights Town Hall. Police have several suspects, but well-placed incriminating evidence and poisonous local gossip compelled authorities to make only one arrest: Nancy Drew. Can you, as the teenage detective and her closest friends, catch the real arsonist and extinguish the accusations among the embers?
Well, I loved it.
I don't know if this game will be for everyone.
If you prefer more exotic, graphic heavy games, then I reccomend you try "Shadow at the Water's Edge," "Captive Curse," or (my personal favorite) "Tomb of the Lost Queen."
If you're really into spookier settings then this probably won't be your cup of tea...
This game can be pretty short if you're playing on Junior Detective (which there is no shame in), or if you're using online clues. However, I thought it was a decent length, but I might just be less intuitive (although I have played all the games).
But there are a lot of fun things in this game for fans of Nancy Drew (books or games). We finally get to see River Heights, and we get to see a few of Nancy's friends ;)
I really enjoyed the mystery and I think that out of all the ND games that have used the 'changing player' format THIS did it the best.
I found it to be a really fun game overall, I think it's a perfect representation of the games and fairly well rounded; So, since this is my review, I think it deserves five stars :), but I think this game would only suit some players, and if you're looking for something else in an ND game you should shop around, there are lots of really great games. Granted… It's easier to shop around if you also have a PC (sorry MAC purists).
Challenging but not too hard
This Nancy Drew is challenging, but not to the point where you want to pull your hair out. There were are few parts where it took me a while to get going and to figure out what to do, but it is very fun still. The characters are VERY well put together and the fact that you get to play as four different people gives it a huge new exciting twist on things! I would recommend it to all, but if this is your fist Nancy Drew to play maybe get one of the previous ones first to get you into the game!
Fun and very detailed game
This game was a lot of fun but we missed one little clue and couldn't move forward for a very long time.
you get to play as bess, george, ned, and nancy, so the game is tedious and you may lose something while switching between the characters.
but it just makes things more challenging ;)
i did like it a lot.
its also cool bcs it takes place in river heights.
