I just got my copy of Nancy Drew: The Captive Curse, and I have no idea what my opinion on the game is yet. I've played for about an hour, and I think half of that was spent wandering around, completely lost. I managed to find two of the characters in the game by pure luck.
1. So far, I have not seen anything about a curse. Instead, it's all about a monster who is haunting the Castle Finster.
2. I managed to die within the first five minutes.
3. There is crazy stuff that happens between Nancy and Ned. That's all I'm going to say at this point. Also, it seems that Ned hangs out with the Hardy Boys. Who knew?
