  1. This game is not the worst game that I have every played. However, it’s a pretty average type of game and is very short, too. For the price, it isn’t a good choice for kids, as there isn’t much replay value despite the mini-games.
  2. The elements of a charming Nancy Drew tale are here, but the game is far too short and too problematic to be recommendable.
  3. I found myself extremely bored by the oversimplified gameplay and poor technical aspects.

    We realize that Mystery of the Clue Bender Society is made for younger players, but most kids today are computer literate at increasingly younger ages. Don't insult them with a gift of self-solving puzzles and the overall poor reincarnation of a literature legend.

    As a game, Nancy Drew on the DS is a train wreck. The real puzzle here is how this game got this far with nobody bothering to put in any real gameplay.

    With puzzle titles like Professor Layton being released it was insulting to even the youngest gamer to see this hold-your-hand "puzzle" game.

Mindless to the point where navigating the map involved more thought process than the puzzles did. A waste of money and a waste of time. Expand
