Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies Review + Giveaway

 Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies Review + GiveawayI love a good mystery and have been into Nancy Drew games for several years now. In fact, the first one was given to me by my younger brother several Christmases ago and we played it together all during our winter break from school. It freaked us out big time - it was one of the more thrilling mysteries (The Haunting of Castle Malloy.)

One thing I've always appreciated about Nancy Drew computer games by HER Interactive is that they are challenging. You'd think this is just a "kids' game" - and of course it's great for pre-teens and teenagers too, but I still find the games challenging and even have to look up walk-throughs online for hints once in awhile. The mystery is my favorite part - There is always something creepy around the corner and you never know what will happen next!

I was lucky enough to review Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies - a PC mystery game set in a Greek museum and amphitheater. It took me awhile to really get into the fun parts of the game because I wasn't seeing some clues that were right in front of me at first. But once I started finding things like secret passageways and the elaborate and creepy sets for the Greek play - not to mention the drama between the actors - it really got exciting! I'm still in the middle of the game and I am playing the Amateur version which is challenging enough for me. But for all you game aficionados out there, there is a Master Sleuth level for you.

One thing I discovered in this game is that there is such a thing as a "fatal error" - which I recently made! Thankfully, the game allowed me to hit the Try Again button to continue where I left off. I had to use some hints to figure out how to pass this part of the game, which is part of what makes Nancy Drew so fun. It's a challenge! And that's what mysteries are all about.

Aside from exciting game play, this mystery also allows the player to learn about ancient Greek history in the museum and solve puzzles based on Greek myths and artwork. Bonus! So for all the parents out there - this is a fun and educational game for your kids (or yourself!)
