Here's a review and my thoughts on Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies game.

As far as the story goes, it was good. Everything was flowing smoothly really reeling you in on the mystery. I am not going to divulge the story here but I will tell you, all of our guesses were wrong! They did a good job in building up the suspense and leaving you completely unexpected and clueless.

A lot of the characters were jerks for the different parts of the game. I get that it goes with the story and it's only appropriate so that you could finish some tasks to advance the plot. They were decently mysterious, helpful and  I of course, looked at the fashion, and was impressed with their Greek costume. My character in the game would be Niobe and next would be Grigor, the comic relief of the game.

I enjoyed the music and I think it is calming during the entire game (although it tends to get old if you play over an hour in one sitting) and suspenseful in parts where you must hurry to finish a task. In short, whatever mood you have to feel in certain parts, a significant melody will play to assume that emotion. At one point, I'm certain Josh Groban is vocalizing.

Puzzles Vs. Plot
As an educational game, I understand that there must be puzzles in the game. However, there are a few too many all at once in this game. Many times Nancy must solve several puzzles in succession, or one puzzle just leads to another. By the time all of the puzzles are finished, the plot is completely forgotten.

I find it enjoyable and very educational. I would give it a definite 8 out of 10. I like Shadow at the Water's Edge and Treasure in the Royal Tower (Hubby's Favorite!) better, but this is right up there with Ransom of the Seven Ships and Danger on Deception Island. All of those are wonderful games, and Labyrinth of Lies is surely another in a long line of Her Interactive successes.
