Nancy Drew: The Haunting of Castle Malloy 3.6 5 18 18
Very immersive, truly gripping, highly challenging. This time, our young sleuth, Nancy, flies all the way to Ireland to attend a friend's wedding. But nothing ever goes as expected with her -else there would be no mystery to unravel. As she approaches the castle, a ghostly figure pops up in front of her car and she ends up in a ditch. Walk, walk, walk.... Once at the castle she is told the groom is missing. Needless to say that Nancy starts investigating without delay. No, I will not reveal more, that would spoil your fun. Let me just add that the storyline is based on Celtic folklore and is pretty enthralling. As in all her adventures, you can choose between 2 Modes: Junior Detective and Senior. The latter is a lot more challenging, though the former is never easy. Nancy [you for the occasion] will interact often with the different characters; she needs to talk to them to gather clues. Reading books and documents is also important for the same reason; they also provide a lot of interesting information on Celtic legends and the history of the Malloy family. Exploring the different locales and collecting inventory items are two of her fundamental tasks. The decor is, as usual, extremely well conceived and crafted, quite impressive actually; the interior of the castle is wonderfully rendered giving the impression you are in a real one. And all the tasks, even though quite a few are not obvious, are good fun. Another strength of this investigation resides in the puzzles and minigames. Some of these minigames are timed, but if you fail once, you can try again as often as necessary. In the end you're bound to win. In everything she does, she needs to be creative and think out of the box. One reason why a Nancy Drew investigation is never a piece of cake. Another reason is that no puzzle is easy. They also differ according to the level you choose; they are harder on Senior Level. I enjoyed that 19th intallment from start to finish; I loved the eerie atmosphere, how the characters react to your questions, their answers, collecting clues one by one, reading, the series of creepy events that spice up the adventure, the tricky puzzles, the fun minigames, and the surprises. Yes, in every one of Nancy's adventure there is at least one surprise showing how much imagination the developers have, how much work and originality they put in each time, and how well they master their art. Castle Malloy is a challenging RPG which grows on you as you progress in the game. I can only recommend it and encourage you to play it. Note: The tutorial at the beginning should not be skipped if this is your first Nancy Drew. January 8, 2012
Good challenge level Though the game seems to be a bit older, it's very in depth and loaded with puzzles and logical problem solving issues. Be prepared to work puzzles - you can NOT skip puzzles with this game. You will have to slog it out, or look up a solution online. (Most are rather doable - give them a try - isn't that why we buy these games?) You can earn help and hints through the fortune teller machine inside the castle, though it costs three lucky coins. Don't worry - you can get more coins by working at the bar at the inn downtown. The navigability isn't as high as in games made today, however, it is still very good. You will still explore the castle, though the interior isn't very large in terms of exploration. Don't judge on that - there are plenty of things to find/do all over the castle, as well as on the castle grounds. Even in Junior detective mode you are really going to have to think outside the box to decide what to do next, where to go, or how to get past a particular obstacle in the game. No one gets a free ride in a Nancy Drew mystery! And, quite frankly, why would anyone want to? You get a lot of challenge for the money you spend with this game. January 20, 2012
Very Fun and Challenging I really loved this one I thought it was fun and the story line was interesting too. If you love Nancy Drew games then you'll love this one too. It was spooky at times and involved a lot of thought but it didn't seem impossible when you really thought about it. I defiantly recommend this game, I don't understand why people didn't love it.

I finally get what all the commotion is about... I have heard a lot about Nancy Drew games since I joined BF - (my favorite walkthrough guy who puts his game videos on Youtube played one awhile back and was instantly hooked - buying and playing a lot more- I didn't watch those, but got notice each time he posted. I knew if he liked them that well, they must be great, which is what convinced me to try a few). I (wrongly) thought they were just for young girls/ teens- (I read the book series when I was a kid, and they were geared for adolescent girls)- I loved them - have always loved mysteries and playing detective- but thought I was too old for these games. Boy was I wrong! They are not only excellent and absorbing and fun and suspenseful for any adult- male or female - I learn new things every time! And I love that! When I played my first ND game, (an Irish one for St. Patrick's day) I learned binary code, Irish traditions, Celtic festivals, more on the zodiac- etc. This Irish one was my first game to play of this Nancy Drew series. That was 3 days ago. Since then, I must have been bitten by the ND bug- because I played The Mystery of the Haunted Mansion the next day, and today I just finished Secrets Can Kill remastered- I just downloaded # 4- the one set in Japan- Shadow at the Water's Edge. (I think though I might take a day's break so I can actually get some work done around here- lol - but for any (former) skeptics like me- These games are highly addictive, uniquely fun, surprising, absorbing, mysterious - and simply the best! I plan to play every one of them, in numerical order. (I am so thankful Bigfish has so many great sales throughout the week! Since I ended up buying 12 of these after playing the first one! lol) For this game, the ONLY thing I wasn't fond of was the chemical puzzle at the end- (why I gave it a 4 on the fun scale)- and only because those tongs were so darn sensitive to any slight wrong move so as to explode the lab. lol - but I did enjoy the witty ways they told us we blew it - Pun intended. ;-) And thank God for second (and third, and fourth - ad infinitum...) chances in these games. That's another thing I love about this game (and the others I played)- the humor, and the voice acting is top notch. If feels like I'm really playing a mystery movie- very immersive... The outtakes after the credits are cute- as if to make it seem real and not like drawn graphics. Loved that touch. The Easter eggs were such fun to get- I was shocked when I got the first one for the dart throwing game- and then was like but what is it for? lol (I kept thinking it must be something I needed for a puzzle or something. ;-)) - and the soda machine Easter egg in Secrets Can Kill was cute - Love those little pluses. The Celtic music for this game was wonderful - I could have listened to it for days...the voice actors/accents as well. And the graphics really made me feel like I was in a haunted castle in Ireland- very nicely done! I think all the ghost writers who made up "Carolyn Keane" would be pleased to know their stories have become such wonderful and engrossing games... March 19, 2015
Great Game I really enjoyed this game the accents are great, the ghost story is awesome. The map isn't huge but there are lots of places to explore. It's challenging but you can beat this (I believe in you). The task are fun and when you get to sheer the sheep you can tell the developers have a sense of humor. This game was just great. January 20, 2015
Nancy Drew games are the best these are very fun games. One just has to remember that they are also played as you being Nancy. Lots of mini games. Hint: use your mouse to scroll over everything you see. Sometimes you will have to write things down to remember what you are supposed to do. July 3, 2014
Loved it! The Haunting of Castle Malloy was an excellent addition to the Nancy Drew series. The puzzles did boarder on the line between challenging and too hard, but the clues are there for you to figure it out and if all else fails there's always an online walkthrough. The storyline was interesting and the graphics and music immersed you in the story. Wonderful game. August 18, 2013
Gets Better and Better I love this game, it is full of suspense and very fun. When I played it I kept wanting more, I love how the game itself was very fun and puzzles were very hard (which I liked most about the game March 10, 2013
Very Challenging and Different Nancy Drew Game This Nancy Drew game is more of a challenge than many - I recommend it for experienced players. What I liked about it: Minimal talking to the characters, no long boring tunnels or halls to walk down, lots of exploring, a few laughs and one very cool contraption that Nancy has to build. I didn't like: Pointless mini games and earning of tokens to play, guess what? More mini games. A few places were not as snoopable as I'd have liked. September 24, 2012
Good times! Interesting game, fun twists along the way!! January 13, 2013
