Alibi In Ashes
This one is great, and quite unique. Best characters in the whole ND series. Four different people to play as, and many interesting interview questions. Good graphics all around. Nice music that really fits the scene. It was a little bit short though.

Looking for the next one to download...
I watched the Nancy Drew film and when I saw the game advertised I thought it would be good. I was not wrong, it was so good, it provided me with a challenge which I enjoyed. When I wasn't playing, I wanted to play it to find out who it was.
Great storyline, I am going to download my next one now.

What would Nancy do?
As a huge fan of Nancy Drew games, this was a fun one! In it you get to play as Ned, Bess, George, and Nancy which I thought was fun because their personalities are all different when interacting with characters/suspects. For the most part the response when the prompted question is the same, but sometimes it's not! :)
I can see how some people would not like the switching between characters, but I didn't mind it. The story was fun as you have to prove Nancy's innocence of being an arsonist.
The puzzles weren't as challenging for me as some of the other games but maybe they weren't the types I struggle with. Overall, this game is one that I will play again and would recommend to anyone who is thinking about buying it!

Not as good as other Nancy Drew games. There were not as many brain teasers in this and only two games you could keep going back to play. The difference was that you involved the help of Bess, George and Ned in solving the case whereby they took over the investigation while Nancy was in the jail. Story line was weaker than the most ND games although I did enjoy playing it.

"Nancy Drew: Alibi in Ashes" Review
This was a good game in the ND series. The characters are interesting enough, there are many places to explore, and good graphics. There sadly aren't many puzzles in the game; it's more of trying to gather evidence. Overall, the game was good and I think it well deserves to be the 25th game.

Love the Nancy Drew games!
I love these games. It's so rare to find any actual point and click/talk to the character games anymore! This one was particularly fun I thought because you were able to play as all of her friends as well! And, you really can't beat the price on it here!

It had potential
To me it was a good game, but far difficult for me. It was really annoying switching from character to character. It was not the best Nancy Drew Game but I would recommend this game to a 12 year old because of diffucult it is. Overall if you want to be suprised about the culprit this is not a good game for you. I recommend Danger on Deception Island or Haunting at Castle Malloy.

Another hard game
I did enjoy the game. But I just don't like games where you must go to internet and get a walk-thru.. If you were stuck, there was no help if you did not understand the hint. Why have a game if its impossible to figure out? How do I say the game was great and fun yet Im so upset at the person who made this game for making such a game where you simply cant figure some things out.. Another game not for beginners.

The good news is..
The good news is: there are lots of characters and lots of chances to talk
The bad news is: they have lots of things to say, and I mean lots, because we can't skip the dialogue.
The good news is: The game is set in River Heights
The bad news is: there are very few places to go, only 5 places in total and not much snooping going on.
The good news is: you will see Ned.
The bad news is: you have to switch to him, back and forth, to Bess and George, back and forth countlessly in order to finish the game
The good news is: there are some good logic puzzles
The bad news is: we can't skip it although we were stuck, as there is no skip button and it was very challenging.
The good news is: it was pretty long
The bad news is: mostly because you spend most of the time switching back and forth between characters
Although I could say I like this game because I am a collector, but it may not be suitable for first time gamer of ND as this game may be too complicated to play.
