Nancy Drew: The Trail of the Twister
for me, this was awful
I really REALLY wish that I could have tried it out first. If I could have done so, I would have know that this is not for me. I am a senior and this game is way too hard for me. I was intrigued because as a kid, I read every single Nancy Drew book when it came out.
Sorry BFG, this game was not for me at all.
You really should allow people to try it first.
But...... lesson learned.

Don't buy this as your first Nancy Drew!!!
I have played many Nancy Drew games and enjoyed all of them, but The Trail of the Twister was a huge let-down for me. It didn't even feel like a game but like a job and a job of the worst kind.
It's part of most ND games having to do chores, but in this one here it's taking the biscuit! Not only are the characters overly stroppy, but some of the chores made want to wretch. I had to catch colonies of mice...ALIVE :-S. So if you have a fear of rodents, then don't go for this game, because they look like rats disguised as mice *yuk :-(.
Most instructions by these high flying storm chasers are in their own jargon and if you don't write them down (I played senior mode, so no task list) then be prepared for endless 'No, I can't to sleep yet, I still have things to do' or Debbie (your kind of line manager) reminding you that you still have things to do and either have to figure it out for yourself or consult a walkthrough to find out what you could have missed. To top it, once Nancy caught the culprit he knocked her unconscious, at which point I was asking myself why male violence against women has to be part of any game.
I'm sorry, but I really did not enjoy The Trail of the Twister one little bit and I can't recommend it. So I repeat: If you never played a Nancy Drew game before, then don't start with this one, as it might put you off ND games for life and you may miss out on the great majority of them.

Waste of Money
Now I know why there is not a free preview version...if there was no one would purchase this game. Very annoying in that you can't skip over dialogues. How you move around the game is also annoying. There is always a magnifying glass, but it only flashes red when you can zoom in on something.
