Game Review: Nancy Drew #32: Sea of Darkness (Bonus Edition)
(standard edition cover art.)
Website Link: Nancy Drew #32: Sea of Darkness
Plot: Good! Without spoiling the game, I thought the plot was fun, and had good twists in it!
Characters: Interesting! While these characters are not going to be in my Top Five of All-Time (A post I would be happy to write if anyone would like to read it.) (Though I may write it anyway, just for fun!), I think they were all interesting and different! My top two in this game would be a tie between Elissabet and Dagny. But Alex Trang (Who you only get to talk to on the phone.), was a favorite, too! (Would love to see her return in another game!) And I liked Ned more in this game than I have previous games!
Locations: Iceland was different from previous game places, and I thought it was fun! (Though honestly, with how dark it was? I would NEVER be able to live there full-time.) I loved exploring the ship, it was beautiful! (A personal favorite was getting to climb up to the top!) And everywhere else in the game was well done!
Graphics: Excellent! Every game just gets better in graphics! And I love getting to see the Northern Lights in the game!
Writing: I like the writing in this game a lot! The humor was very fun, and found myself laughing a lot, which was something I didn't expect with this particular game. Because I thought the tone overall would be more serious (Which I'm pleased to say that there is humor to lighten the more serious moments!). And I didn't think there would be many jokes in it, which I'm pleased to write I was wrong about! (And as always, I love the little references to previous games!) The writing was very strong in this game!
Puzzles: Good! Fun! Not too easy, but not too hard either! (I have to admit that I was very bad at the animal puzzle game, though!)
Music: Good! And the song with lyrics, The Word I Couldn't Keep was very pretty, even though it was sad.
Ending: Not my favorite ending overall, but still good!
Will I Replay It?: Um, it's a Nancy Drew game. I'm obviously going to replay it!
Game cover: Very neat and pretty!
Overall: A very good ND game! Definitely in my top ten, and after replaying it, it might go into my top five! Excellent writing, amazing graphics, wonderful characters, fabulous music, and overall good plot make this a must have game for a Nancy Drew fan! And if you have never played ND before, or it's been awhile? This is a wonderful game to begin with! :)
This next part might be a spoiler to you, if you don't want to know what the next game is about/what the title is before you play!
Next Game: Looking forward to having Deidre back again! And while the next game kinda looks terrifying, I also think it looks really good! (And if the voice at the end of the trailer is Nancy's new voice, I like it!) :)
