The game would be enjoyed by kids and adults. My sister, who has played most of the other Nancy Drew games, says that this game is a lot easier than the others since it’s a lot more straightforward and somewhat repetitive. She said it could be a training game for kids who wanted to play the other Nancy Drew games. She added sometimes she’d have to ask for help with the other games, but this one was easy compared to the others. But then again, I couldn’t get her to take a five minute break. Perhaps they should have made easy and hard paths, so make it harder for the big kids. They did this in other Nancy Drew games.
I mostly watched my sister (commenting about what to do, not sitting there aimlessly), which I found enjoyable. I think it’s something parents and kids can do together. The kids can play the game whereas the parents can try to solve the mystery.
So, my sister (The Nancy Drew Pioneer) and I (The Newbie) had fun. I think this would be a great present for kids. It should be a safe bet.Nancy Drew: Lights, Camera, Curses is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB for Mild Violence, Tobacco Reference.
