Nancy Drew: Curse of Blackmoor Manor User Reviews
The graphics were really good in this one; nothing like the graphics in games like Myst III Exile or Crystal Key 2, etc., but real enough. The characters were likable, and the house itself was beautiful. I would have loved to live there were it a real place. The designs are so intricate. If you're someone who loves mystery in history, then this game is for you, as the whole game is about the history of the Penvellyns and how their heritage led up until the present. It was also really cool to see Latin written everywhere.The bad:
The only "bad" would be that the ending wasn't challenging or drawn out at all, and that the puzzles were really hard...but it wasn't horrible, so the bad should hardly count.Summary:
I gave the game a 4.9 only because I didn't like the ending much, but it wasn't horrible, so what am I complaining about?
I think that "The Curse of Blackmoor Manor" is one of the best (possibly even THE best) Nancy Drew games created yet. The puzzles were very challenging but I felt such a sense of accomplishment when I figured them out. The history of the Penvellyns was very interesting, and made me wish my family was like that. I don't think we can hardly date our ancestors back before the late 1880s, whereas in Blackmoor, the Penvellyns could date theirs back to the 1400s.
Also, the deco...
Difficult and varied types of puzzles, and a new twist to the characters.The bad:
Interaction with particular characters did not often take place.Summary:

Really good graphics, new elements, length of game, characters. I also really liked this game because it has quite a few games to play and "tasks" to completeThe bad:
You couldn't talk to some of the characters very much. Some of the puzzles were difficult.Summary:
Overall, this game is excellent! It has several new elements that previous Nancy Drew games do not--This is the first game to have an animal that you can interact with. Also, this is the first game to have a younger character in the game at all. I really liked this game because it has quite a few games to play and "tasks" to complete. The characters interesting; however; you don't get to interact with some of them very often. This Nancy Drew game is definitely one of the scariest and graphics make it seem the most "real." It doesn't leave you thinking there should be more—it took me the mos...
Challenging puzzles, interesting characters, beautiful graphics, great educational aspectThe bad:
Timed puzzle and rotating maze can be difficult.Summary:

If you love mystery, excitment, and are not a little bit afraid of curses then this game is for you. The game is intense and gets you involved, playing as Nancy from the beginning. She describes how she ended up in England, and would be staying at the Manor to solve an exciting mystery.The bad:
The puzzles, are a little bit dull and for the beignner, the puzzles may seem a bit long and boring, not to mention a waste of time. Especially, playing with the stepdaughter, Jane. Although, the games are cute, but they take too much time, and there was no point and not so meaningful connections. The only really bad part is too much conversation. Even if you exhaust all conversations, most of them can be misleading.Summary:
This game is really intense from the beginning when Nancy arrives in England, and stays at the Blackmoor Manor to solve an intense mystery of past and present adventure. The characters, are limited and the puzzles are many. The Manor is just creepy and there is many excitement in the air.
