Nancy Drew Dossier Lights Camera Curses 

 

Nancy Drew Dossier Lights, Camera, Curses caught me off guard. With curses in the name of the game I was bracing myself for the worst. The curse has to do with the fear of a dead person leaving a curse. Those that put faith in that then attribute strange occurrences to 'the curse.' Nancy Drew games usually disprove the myths that the game is based on. This Personal Computer game is much more casual, and artistic than the other Nancy Drew video games from Her Interactive. A lot of this Personal Computer (PC) video game is matching items to solve different puzzles. The use of mini games is what sets this game apart from the main series, and it is an interesting direction for Her Interactive to take.

Nancy Drew Dossier Lights, Camera, Curses has some very thematic graphics. There are some bright colors, and some areas of dark coloration. This PC game has a cartoonish look to it that I personally like better than the more realistic visuals of the main series. I feel this is the most natural progression of the series, and the casual feel fits nicely. I also enjoyed the matching of graphical items that are related.

Nancy Drew Dossier Lights, Camera, Curses has some really good voice acting that I appreciated. It is amazing to hear the emotion in the voices of the characters at different times of the game. Nancy Drew is pretty steady throughout most of the game, giving some decent stability. Players answer questions at certain intervals of the game to see if they were paying attention. Correct answers the first try grant the player more points.

There are some unlockable mini games inside Nancy Drew Dossier Lights, Camera, Curses along with a decent length of the story. This PC game can be purchased for under twenty dollars, so it is economical for a casual game.

The game play in Nancy Drew Dossier Lights, Camera, Curses is pretty simple, but at the same time it can require thought. A light bulb needs changed, so the player must find an item on screen to use to reach it. The puzzles are simple, but at times require thought. This game also gives the player a lot of hints on what kind of item to look for. I found Nancy Drew Dossier Lights, Camera, Curses to be more fun than I expected.

The casual game market is getting flooded, so one that tells a story, contains a mystery, and is a little different caught my eye. I would really like to see more games in this style, and believe Her Interactive is on the right track with Nancy Drew Dossier Lights, Camera, Curses.
