    Another very poor Nancy Drew game. I grew addicted to these games because I love the mystery solving and intrigue. This game feels more like a cat fest at an all girls boarding school. There is no suspense, the puzzles are dull and I found the eventual outcome very disappointing.

    The game was somewhat interesting, but there was one task that was probably bugged (photographing the students) because one of the students I tried over 20 times in different ways and the game never accepted it. Unfortunately there was no way to skip this task so it broke the game for me, I couldn't proceed. Too bad, because I was interested in the story.

Another minor thing that bothered me is generally the unskippable minigames, and having to grind at the snack shop. The shop was interesting *once*, but having to do it over and over again quickly kills any entertainment in it. Expand

  1. Probably written with the back-to-school season and Halloween in mind, Warnings at Waverly Academy is a refreshing change of pace for Nancy Drew as, for once, we get to see Nancy in a school setting being a somewhat more normal teenage girl.
  2. But even with all of these positive attributes, not to mention the other hallmarks of the series – the fabulous soundtrack, the suspenseful timed ending, the plot twists, the historical research, the phone calls to Nancy’s friend and boyfriend – I found the game very underwhelming.
  3. The puzzles are engaging without being too taxing, and are mixed into the story nicely. The plot is paced well. I just couldn't find anything about this game I didn't like, except that it is a bit short.
