    While Nancy Drew: The Phantom of Venice oscillates quite a bit more on the fun meter than the last installment, it does have the exact same graphic and audio quality -- you might even say, “run of the mill,” considering we’re on #18.
  2. All in all, while still providing a dependable Nancy Drew adventure that fans have come to expect, I just couldn’t help but feel that The Phantom of Venice seems tired, or more specifically, that it’s the latest entry in a series that itself is getting tired.

    It's about as middle of the road as gaming gets and suffers from a few lazy design flaws, but is still oddly enjoyable.
