Classic game, but a few iffy scenes
This really is a classic game. Parents, those of you who read the books as children will definetly have fun walking down memory lane. This game is based off of the first four books in the series. One thing that I like the most is the music, it's classic 1930's style music and you may find yourself moving to the catchy beat. Another really good thing about this game is the educational value, kids will most likely learn what things were like back then and they will also learn quite a few things about the Great Depresssion. Of course, Nancy is a good role model because she's persistent and she is a good friend towards Emily, because she helps her while she's greiving the loss of her mother.But, this game isn't flawless. One thing that may be a bit bothersome if the frustrating puzzles, one in particular is the mini-golf puzzle where you have to get a certain score inorder to complete it. Then there's the sewing puzzle where you'll definetly need a steady hand because you have to stay in the guidlines while sewing the dress. Another concern is the violence. One violent scene is the kitchen fire where something goes wrong in the kitchen (I think the stove was left on) and it burns up. Then, there's the scene where you have to grab a piece of paper, if you try to grab it on the bridge, Nancy falls off and dies. It's not graphic, but the thought may scare some alone. But, one of the mildest scenes is when Nancy gets a flat tire, you get it from driving over to many potholes, but trust me when I say her car can take quite a lot of abuse. What happens is when you do get a flat, you have to change the tire, in one step instead of putting the lug nuts on correctly, you can do them by hand. When that happens, all that occurs is that Nancy won't be able to drive her car and you'll have to click the "second chance button". Overall, this is a very good game and also a very classic game. But, be aware of the hard puzzles. But i'd say this is one of the mildest games in the series as far as the violence.
