Between cases, Nancy Drew has taken an internship as Deputy Curator at the Beech Hill Museum in Washington, D.C. Nancy soon discovers she will be doing more than learning about ancient Maya artifacts–there have been a series of thefts and the only clue left behind in a mysterious scarlet handprint! Will Nancy be able to put the pieces of this ancient puzzle together? Or will the mystery remain entombed forever?
Secret of the Scarlet Hand is another episode of HER's Nancy Drew series and sadly it's definitely not their best. Not that the game is bad per se, gameplay-wise it's really a straightforward adventure game with challenging yet logical puzzles. The places you get to visit are a bit derivative and a bit too closed. Sadly the story (which in my opinion is the most important part in an adventure game) starts out really slowly and it only picks up towards the end which is a shame. For fans of the series I'd still recommend this game, for newcomers this is not the best place to start.
