  1. Nancy Drew Fan...
    by hcs5490, USA - Mar 25th 2014

    I love the Nancy Drew games. They are really my guilty pleasure. I have played all the games available on Mac and a good amount of the PC-only games, too. Trail of the Twister, though, is one of the most boring. The puzzles are the same as always, but the characters and the mystery were not exciting, and some of the tasks Nancy has to do are just time consuming and serve no purpose, like catching mice in the house. I played it through because I love the Nancy Drew games, but I'd recommend starting with a different title if you're new to the games.

  2. Okay Game

    This is a great series, but this game was just not good. No plot at all, not even remotely close to the other games. I like the excitment with the tornadoes, but honestly the game as a whole wasn't worth $20.

  3. great game - a lot of focus on tornados!

    As most nancy drew games - you learn a lot about the subject matter that you are working on in this point and lick adventure puzzle game. the mini puzzles were generally fun and the story was interesting - but i did not find much challenge to a few of the repetitive minigames; like the mouse trap. not my favorite of the nancy drew series - but each game is getting progressively better - and this was no different! DEFINITELY worth the time and money - this game was the reason i started playing nancy drew games - now i have played them all several times! - plus with its Junior AND senior game-play options and the ability to complete the case without passing all the challenges, you find new puzzles and tricks each time you play!
