I was INCREDIBLY excited for this game as it has some slight Viking undertones and I LOVE Viking culture. I am 23 years old and I still find much enjoyment playing the Nancy Drew games, they really make you think and some of the puzzles are actually on the hard side but the game offers an in game walk through. I was REALLY excited to see that this was the first Nancy Drew game that featured a gay character. The graphics were PHENOMENAL and I was beyond impressed with this game. MY only complaint was I found it to be a little on the short side. I normally take a few days to get through these games but this one I bet within 3 hours.
