What makes this game such a pleasure to play is that it is simply a lot of fun. The puzzles are challenging, but not to a frustrating level; the suspects are funny and well-scripted; the plot moves quickly and holds interest; and the length is adequate. In some ways, I almost enjoy this series better than the original PC adventures because it is a more solid product, with no tedious chores or timed sequences to hinder enjoyment. I highly recommend this game and this series for its unique approach to casual mystery adventures. It may be Fast Fun for Busy Detectives, but it’s also highly addictive!
Resorting to Danger! keeps all the great features of the first title and builds on a great formula. Do no hesitate to take a trip to the spa with Nancy, but be sure to watch your back!
Nancy Drew Dossier Resorting to Danger is an excellent example of a quality casual game. The game is engaging, but also fairly easy to play. The puzzles that are hidden objects are really easy, even with the added component of having to find a series of objects and use them together. The mini-games are more difficult, and add a needed element of challenging gameplay. All of the games and puzzles are logically connected to the story line and are not obvious filler material. Her Interactive has definitely made a strong entry into the casual game market, and if they adhere to this same formula, are sure to be successful. A good choice for any casual game fan, and also for families.
Traditional adventure fans should go in expecting a highly streamlined game style, and hidden object fans should brace themselves for a whole new kind of casual adventure. But regardless of where you’re coming from, chances are you’ll end up having a blast. Sometimes even literally.
Nancy Drew: Resorting to Danger isn’t a perfect game. The graphics are a little strange, none of the characters seem to know that sometimes, it’s okay to be quiet, and, towards the end, the gameplay starts to get frustrating. Still, it is an interesting hidden object game with some minigames that I’d love to have on my iPod and a story with an entertaining focus on the ridiculousness of show business.
