Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister





Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister 


Her Interactive is back, and was gracious enough to give Family Friendly Gaming a reviewable copy of Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister. This is the twenty-second game they have created in the main Nancy Drew mystery series. There have been some casual games as well. This time Nancy Drew is trying to solve a storm tracking team from Canute who keep having some bad luck. While twisters are being chased in Oklahoma Nancy is chasing the source of these accidents.

I noticed some nice improvements in the animations of Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister. The characters are much more animated visually, and do not look stiff like in some older Nancy Drew games. There are some scary images in Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister like watching a tornado go by. There is some wonderful education that players can read about twisters in this PC game. This is a nice touch that computer games can do, and I appreciate it.

I also believe the voice acting has improved in Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister. Characters have some real emotion in this game, which really helps solve the mystery. There are characters you will relate to, and ones you can not stand. The music fits the mystery theme of Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister. Some of the subtle verbal content will go right over the heads of children, which may be why the case says from 10 to Adult.

One of the replay values to Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister is collecting pennies and using them to challenge mini games. The mystery has some easy parts, and difficult parts. Thankfully Her Interactive included Junior and Senior Detective modes. I would advise newcomers to start on the Junior mode until they are ready for the additional challenge.

Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister has a cool feature in erasing mistakes. I really like this idea, and feel it helps this game in a lot of ways. The game plays like previous versions. Driving around felt a little weird but I got the hang of it. Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister keeps enough notes so the player can think about what action(s) to perform next. I had fun playing Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister.

Nancy is trying to unearth the truth among people who have their own agendas. One might think she was trying to traverse the polluted waters of the political world in Washington DC. I have known people from OK, and they were very honest and genuine. Of course those from the college are portrayed pretty well - arrogant, self absorbed, and thinking they know better than everyone else. Nancy Drew Trail of the Twister exposes the dark side of human nature. Learn from this game, and pick a better path.
