Nancy Drew: Tomb of the Lost Queen
Great ND game. Much more relaxed than some (only hurry up puzzle at end of game) and I prefer the relaxing type adventure game. Pay attention to the dialogue.

Lots of fun!
The games were fun and it was challenging to find the answers without it being ridiculously impossible to figure out. Worth the money.

Another ND Hit!
The best adventure games out there, imho. I have a hard time finding something to fill the lapses between ND releases that has the same level of quality and satisfaction!!

One of my Favorits ND games
There you are settled in as an assistant to a dig. And than things change. Some of the challage mini games are very easy and some you just want to come back to. This has to be one of my favorite games, the next one Deadly Devices is one I could not stop playing the mini games. If you love ND games you are going to like this one for sure.

Played Them All and Loved Them All!!!!
Nancy Drew games are very challenging, to say the least. I played this one years ago when it came out and payed full price at their web site, so grab it if it's your cup of tea!
This game, as with all ND games, takes many sittings to play and needs patience and determination. The walkthrough, which can be found by a web search, was invaluable to me and easier than the forum here when you're stumped.
I cannot stress enough that this is a very different kind of game than the HOGS and adventure games you find here. There will be many Fishies who give this game a bad review because of the different game play, I assume.
The game lost a star because there was a limited number of places to explore and I find that a bit boring. Also, the visuals weren't up to par but I guess a desert is a desert! Inside scenes were better.
About the time this game came out I decided that this game, and a couple others, just weren't up to the standard I expect from the developer of these games. Maybe they were rushing to get them to the loyal players of ND games maybe there was new people working on them..... who knows??
Right now I'm playing the newest game that was just released, and yes, I was one of those people that bought it prereleased and anxiously awaited the day I could download it and play.
I haven't gone into the story or game play because others will do that.
I highly recommend Tomb of the Lost queen, especially at this price, to those who can adjust to it and have fun with it. It's not for everyone, so be aware of that before you purchase this game since there is no trial. This is a large file game and maybe won't play well on slower computers.

one of the best
so much fun! i adored the mysterious atmosphere, the gorgeous setting, and all the attention to detail. the puzzles were fantastic and they really taught me something about Egyptian history. i was sad when the game ended. it's a tricky one - playing on Master level will mean you really need to work your brain, and there are no skips, so be warned!

Good but not the best
For a newer Nancy Drew game, this is not the best, but I had fun playing it. I would definitely recommend other Nancy Drew games before this one, though.

one of the good ones
I play ND with my 9 and 11 year old children. We have played many, if not all on big fish. This one was really fun but the hint hotline made it almost too easy. We enjoyed the puzzles and storyline. As usual the visual quality was very good. We would recommend this game.

Enjoyable but needs a voice-skip option
I read *very* fast. I dislike that there is no way to skip the voice-overs. The voice work was good - I liked the depiction of Jamila, a modern Muslim woman.
Overall, enjoyable. Good story, just challenging enough. But too long, because there was no way to move the character interactions aka voice-overs, any faster.

Another Great ND Game!
I enjoyed playing this game, however-I did get frustrated with the maze-like aspects of the tomb. I was constantly turning around by accident and getting lost or going the wrong direction. There were a good amount of puzzles (in true Nancy Drew fashion- that were pretty tough to solve) but I like finding objects to use- and this installment didn't have many. There are lots of fun glyphs to decode & overall I gave it 4 stars because It was a little short of a game for what i'm use to with ND games.
