Her Interactive has recently added another Nancy Drew game, which is available for the Mac as well PC. I received my review copy via the downloadable purchase option which is available on Her Interactive’s website. Nancy Drew: Shadow at the Water’s Edge is the third of three Nancy Drew titles – to celebrate her 80th Anniversary this year. It’s definitely one of the scariest games amongst the ones I’ve tried out so far.

In this adventure, Nancy Drew travels to Japan for a vacation, to meet up with some old friends as well as teach young students English in order to fund her trip. While staying at a traditional Ryokan Hiei (inn), strange encounters seemed to point to the possibility that the inn was haunted. Reports of ghost sightings and paranormal activities were scaring guests away and our young sleuth decided to uncover the mystery behind the haunting.

The game starts with a choice of Junior or Senior Detective level which sets the level of difficulty. As with its predecessors, the point and click function enables the player to inspect clues, pick things up, explore the surroundings and select Nancy’s choice of interaction as well as respond to other characters in the game. Once more, Nancy’s cell phone plays an important role in the game as players can use it to take pictures and call Bess and George for advice when needed. There’s also the usual checklist to help the player keep track of things to do.

Similarities aside, Shadow at the Water’s Edge provided better quality graphics and more life like 3D characters than its last installment. The voice over and sound effects were just as good. I have to admit though, that some scenes were quite dark, which made it harder to see but I guess this was unavoidable due to the night time scenarios. If you are a person who enjoys learning about other country’s culture, then you will be delighted to know that this game gives player the opportunity to learn about origami, Japanese tea ceremonies, bento and calligraphy. Players also get to explore a wider environment in different areas around Kyoto, Japan via the subway system. I personally enjoyed the lovely and unique Japanese garden settings the most.

As far as solving the mystery is concerned, there are puzzles popping up all over and they feature a variety of matching games and number challenging Sudoku, Pachinko, Renograms and Nonograms. I seriously wonder if players who are weak in numbers would be turned away by them. But then again, perhaps those like me who enjoys number and logic puzzles may find them more appealing.

Shadow at the Water’s Edge does have some spooky scenes with eerie music which may not be suitable for the younger and more timid kids. However, as an adult, I enjoyed the horror story and the beautiful graphics was a definite plus. Overall, this is one gaming experience fans of Nancy Drew would not want to miss.

    I am SUCH a huge fan of Nancy Drew, and I’ve recently introduced her to my daughter – who is now also hooked. This would make a great surprise for her! Another title I love is The Trail of the Twister. Looks fun!
