Nancy Drew: Warnings at Waverly Academy
This was a great ND game
This game was fantastic! it definatly made one of my top 5 favorite ND games. The graphics were very good. The storyline was fun and unexpecting. There were lots of twists and turns along playing the game and very exciting!!!! Some of the people were kind of annoying and the story line was kinda based on a typical teenage lifebut that was a fun part about it too. I like how there were many charaters you could talk too and i always get a kick out of what Nancy says whenever she goes to the bathroom:) Theres lots of sluething and sneaking. I hope you enjoy this game as much as i did!!!! -maggie

Nancy Drew games are very fun. This one is especially my personal favorite. It took me over 2 days to finish but it was worth it. I love the ending where you did not see that at all. The challenges were excellent as well as the characters and plot. So overall, it is a decent and well-thought game.

Kinf og tough
I really liked this game. I was wrong about the bad guy completely. It was challenging like all the Nancy Drew games but not to the point that you could not finish it.If you get stuck, you can look the solution up online. Once you find it, you may smack your forehead lol
Also the game is not short so you get your money worth.
I love how big fish charges only 6.99 for this game.

This is not for a beginner
This is my first time playing Nancy Drew series. Boy, the puzzles are KILLING me! I have to check the hints every five mins, and it annoying. Playing with hints is no fun, maybe I'll play it again later.
Graphics are good, but what annoys me are the voices. It takes forever to finish the conversation, and I can't just skip it.
I like the surprise in the credits. Maybe I can look forward to another Nancy Drew series.

This was fun.
I liked this game. It's really oriented towards young ladies.
Learn how to arrange place settings, fill snack orders against the clock, and interrogate your classmates (a lot).

School of Intrigue!
Played in Junior Mode :)
- Interesting storyline and story background
- Lots of characters to interact with
- Opportunity to learn about US geography
- Variety of puzzles and mini games
- Redundant music.. it plays over and over and gets boring
- Not many places to explore or go to
- Ending puzzle is weird and doesn't make any sense
- Too many tasks or duties on behalf of other people, so not much snooping going on
Still I think it is one of the best new ND games :)

This was a great thinking game. I sometimes found myself ahead of the story, but the puzzles themselves were challenging enough. I liked that you can save the story at different points and reload old versions to replay scenes or clues. Worth the money and time.

This game was fun.. The puzzles were fun.. Tho 2 of them did not make since, and I had to look for help. The game seemed a little faster then the others, but was the perfect for me.. If not for last 2 puzzles, I would scored alot of it at 5 stars.

Good... but not great
This was my first Nancy Drew game, and while I enjoyed the game, I was annoyed that so many of the puzzles required looking at a walkthrough. Also I felt like there wasn't enough clues to let you know where to go next - well in the beginning anyway. For Nancy Drew followers you may be used to who the character thinks, but I just felt like I had no idea what was expected until the end of the game. The puzzles were hard. I loved the way I got caught out of the bedroom so many times and received demerit points... that was clever and the small amount of rooms to investigate meant I knew where I was all the time without use of a map which was great.
Overall, I liked it, but I didn't love it. Not sure if I would play it again.

This was the first ND game I've played. This is a good game, but here are some things that seriously disappointed me. I will probably try one more to determine if my disappointments were just related to this particular game or not.
NOTE: YOU WILL NEED A PEN AND TWO SHEETS OF PAPER FOR PUZZLE SOLVING! yes.. get ready for hand cramps.
Characters: Excellently animated with unique personalities and great voice acting. Disappointing was the fact they were all statically placed. *yawn*
Environment: Great! Beautiful but a tiny bit grainy. I was disappointed with how few and small the interactive areas were! Lots of wasted space and potential.
Sound effects were good, but the music didn't always seem to fit the situation at times.
Storyline: decent. Interesting, but occasionally had BIG holes in it. I was disappointed with the lack of substance and frustrated with the gaps.
Puzzles - I really enjoyed the majority of them, but as noted above there was a couple that killed the fun factor due to all the writing down of notes to solve them.
Challenge: The biggest challenge was getting past the holes in the story progression. You track down a clue and then.. NOTHING.. literally nothing. You are forced to run around trying to find something/someone that will trigger things to move forward. >:(
The last disappointment was the lack of the need for nighttime snooping. :( I really wished there had been a greater need for this as it would have made things much more fun.
Glitches / WARNING: When you get a photo assignment - DO NOT UPLOAD ANY OF THEM UNTIL YOU HAVE ALL OF THEM! (Also - take more than one pic with different settings just to avoid pulling your hair out) If you start uploading pics prior to having all of them it can seriously glitch the game and you may be forced to start over.
SAVE OFTEN! I recommend at least two save files for before and after key points.
This game should come with a bit more direction. Like how to use the computer - perhaps a comment or suggestion from her would have helped a lot.
