Nancy Drew: Shadow at the Water's Edge is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Her Interactive beats all as always If you like a real adventure game without all those HO frames where you have to look for random junk, all of Nancy Drew are true adventure games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the scariest ND games! I really enjoyed this game. It was pretty scary with some ghost pop outs so I would recommend it to ages 11 and over. I liked how it kept you on your toes although it became pretty obvious halfway through who the culprit was. The only really challenging , frustrating puzzle was the wire/photograph puzzle. I liked grading the students papers but I didnt like that I had to do origami and other things with Saskue to move on but ok!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best of the Drew games This is by far one of the best of the Nancy Drew games. There are sooooo many great qualities about this game I honestly don't know where to start. Lets see Creepy feel (check), dynamic characters (check), awesome puzzles (check check and check), technology (check), tradition (check), and great information and new skill to try out at home (CHECK). Oh and did I forget the secret passageway? How could you not want to play this one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This one won't disappoint I really enjoyed this, it was a great story and fun puzzles, some parts were quite hard but we don't always want to just race through a game without stumbling a few times. I will say it was a bit scary in a few spots and I did scream once LOL, very fun to play at night

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SAW Review If I hadn't have played "Ghost Of Thorton Hall", I think this would be one of the scariest!! The riding the train part got kind of annoying, but once you figure out the map and where your going, it gets better. The puzzles were tricky even in Junior mode!! I usually finish games in 1-2 days, but this took me a week!(Mainly because I got frustrated and had to take a break, lol) Overall, this was a really good, keep you at the edge of your seat game (:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shadow At The Waters Edge One of the best in the Nancy Drew series- it has everything. It is quite exotic, set in a unique location. One of the scarier games in the series. The characters are decent, and the plot is good. Worth the money. The puzzles are often, and the one on the back of the portrait is super hard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THIS SCARED ME SOOOOO MUCH!!!!! IT WAS TOTALLY AWESOME! The quality is epic, the graphics are great, and the scariness turned up to a ten!!!!! This game is rated by many as the most terrifying Nancy Drew game ever...they weren't exaggerating! If you are below 12 or 13 years of age I do not recommend this game. (Or if you do not like being terrified out of your seat.) HOWEVER, if you liked to be scared then this will be the perfect game for you, I know of some 30 year olds who screamed while playing this game. The only thing I can find wrong with this are the Sudoku puzzles , I had to use a walkthrough to solve them. This game has plenty of horrific animation sections, much more than other Nancy Drew games, which is always a bonus. (The first ones just had a five second animation at the end!) There are lots of locations to go and really fun games, lovable characters, and some really funny moments. Oh, and another plus, is that at the end there is an INTERACTIVE ANIMATION SEQUENCE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Japanese puzzle/adventure game I love that most Nancy Drew adventures are so different from each other while still retaining elements that make them distinctly 'nancy drew.' Some ND games set around homes or castles etc end up being quite alike and rely on different plot or puzzles to be different, although they are good. This feels different from the people being widely dispersed - two on phone, one elsewhere and three within the Ryokan. There is a theme in this game and it's very strong throughout - Japanese culture from modern to traditional and I thought how they did this was excellent. Even the puzzles are mostly Japanese or are well known in Japan, little things like that make this a very well-thought out game. Sometimes ND games are more adventure with only a couple of puzzles, here there are a lot and as usual you can't skip them. The puzzles you have are - suduko (quite a few) nonogram renogram memory skills origami cryptogram type tangram bento boxes (picture puzzle) couple of timed puzzles Pachinko In ND games you always get a couple of games that you can play as much as you want - here it was pachinko which is an arcade/pinball type game and bento boxes which if you don't like the picture you get just back out and go in again and it gives you a different configuration. If you don't like suduko, nonogram, and renogram puzzles I found out after playing that if you get an easter egg in the game (there are 4) you can actually skip those that are given by one person (although you will have to do a couple later in the game.) There is one timed colour in type puzzle near the end and thankfully I got it on the third try or would have got frustrated as I don't like timed things. I love learning things and learned quite a bit about Japanese culture by doing a couple of puzzles and by reading things in the game. There were a good variety of locations and sometimes it's just set in one place - here you go to an arcade parlour, a mall (I think) an apartment, and the ryokan which has gardens, baths as well as the main area. As it was a bit more complex the plot there was slightly more dialogue in it than other games but it wasn't a dialogue heavy game at all factoring in all the adventure, exploring and puzzles although it would be great if you could skip dialogue once you had read it. I loved it and wouldn't have changed the amount at all as I thought it was interesting. If anyone has seen "the ring" I think you will appreciate one aspect of it - I loved the nod to that movie with that but if you haven't seen it (and I do recommend the Japanese version much more creepy) it isn't necessary but an added layer of 'very clever and creepy' if you have. Also the obvious nod to 'the grudge' movie and like those movies this, especially at one part actually made me jump and no game ever does that with me. I so loved that Japanese ghost theme throughout (so different from other ghost stories.) As there was a lot going on, if you are new to ND games to even to LF then do choose junior mode. As you get a task list to check off, and I do secretly miss that playing senior! Also you get to phone Bess or George for a hint and I think the puzzles could be easier so if you don't like puzzle then do choose junior mode as you can't skip them. The second chance is here as usual, which brings you back to a time before you make a mistake or timed puzzles. It's a manual save game and load game, so you can go back if you make a mistake so save often but don't overwrite old saves. This is one of the games that have achievements but you don't know what they are till the end of the game if you do want to know what they are beforehand, do a search so you know what to try or just leave it to chance to see how you did! I love them. I thought this was a very clever, involved plot, and hard (but not in the very hard range) puzzles with interesting adventure game. It's not one of their 'easier' games and if you don't like a lot of puzzles it might not be for you but what a well-done game that I learned a lot from - what more can I ask?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scary and fun This game is scary! Music is very creepy and sad. Graphic is excellent. Fun characters, puzzles, and activities. It was sometimes funny, too. I'm so hooked on ND games.
