As if pursuing criminals wasn’t enough of a challenge, Nancy Drew adds tornado chasing to her repertoire in her 22nd PC adventure, Trail of the Twister. P.G. Krolmeister, maker of all sorts of meteorological equipment, has hired Nancy to help a team of storm researchers who have been experiencing a suspicious streak of back luck. This could really hurt their chances of winning the $100-million Green Skies Storm Competition for the best twister predictions. Scott Varnell, an Atmospheric Science instructor at the financially-strapped Canute College and the leader of the research group, is worried that if the team doesn’t get the data they need, there is a good chance they won’t be around next year. Nancy is brought in to figure out who’s been sabotaging their efforts, and while it seems pretty clear who it is early on, the game does keep you a little off-balance until the end. Then again, you’ll spend far more time playing an undercover summer intern than an actual detective this time around.
Another decent game from Nancy Drew seriesShav | June 7, 2013 | See all Shav's reviews »
I personally enjoy the Nancy Drew series (I own most of the games), even though most of them are mediocre.
Anyway, I had pretty big expectations with Trail Twister, as the movie "Twister" is one of the most memorable films that I've seen when I was younger. This game features some elements that remind me of that movie - there is a huge tornado, mystery, and some puzzles that involve metheorological knowledge. As in every other Nancy Drew game, you can choose one of two difficulty levels - junior or senior detective, so the game is easily accessible even for people completely new to this series.
Not the best game in the genre, but still fun to play. IMHO it is one of the best in Nancy Drew series.
