Interesting detective adventure game

If you like TV series like CSI and stuff, then this game could be just for you. In Nancy Drew Alibi Ashes you have to investigate a mysterious case of arson in your neighbourhood, and your task is to catch the arsonist.

The game plays like most of the point and clicks - you investigate your surroundings, use items to your advantage and have to solve some puzzles. This title is quite nice-looking, because of a handdrawn graphics, like in most p&c's it features a real-life-like graphics. If you like adventure games, and you are intested in the work of police and detectives you should give it a try.
