A brazen thief steals a priceless artifact while Nancy Drew sets up an exhibit of ancient Maya treasures in the very next room. The only clue left behind is a mysterious scarlet handprint, the meaning of which was entombed centuries ago amongst the relics.
Players, as Nancy Drew, must use their sleuthing skills to track the thiefs sinister blood-red signature through a maze of long-buried secrets. Is the thief stealing for money or as part of a more ominous plan? To solve the case Nancy ventures beyond the museum to visit several Washington D.C. locations. Using the subway, she makes her way to the Mexican Consulate, a hospital, and an art dealership in search of clues. Along the way she meets a variety of fascinating characters, all with secrets to hide. As Nancy digs deeper into the thefts, it becomes clear that she has unearthed a complex and sinister plot with roots dating back thousands of years.

First, let me say that, as someone who is seriously considering a master's degree in museum studies, this game was an absolute delight! The museum is filled with nooks and crannies to explore: the curator's office, the exhibition hall, a three-storey Maya temple, gardens, shipping and receiving and the lab, filled with neat gadgets such as an analyzer, foam packing machine, ham radio and more, all of which help Nancy on her quest.
"Secret of the Scarlet Hand" simply offers more locations than previous games, more characters/suspects, and a much deeper storyline. Nancy travels to different locations by subway, with a static image overlay as the various station lights light up on the metro map. Graphics are, as always, beautiful. The Maya artifacts are photo realistic, extremely detailed and vibrant. Music and ambient sounds are more pronounced than in previous ND games. The score features haunting panpipes, rainforest birdcalls, and flamenco, along with more ominous mood music-although some reviewers though the music was too repetitive, I found that the soundtrack greatly enhanced the gaming experience.
This is definitely the most educational of the Nancy Drew games.Read more ›
P.S. Who says you have to follow the rules? In this museum, you are certainly going to have break some!

My daughters found it interesting. They say they learned a lot about Mayan civilization, but it was too much. They thought the game was bogged down by Mayan trivia. Read morePublished on Jan. 24 2012 by Kimbo67

I played all the Nancy Drew games except for the newest one so far. And to tell you the truth, this one was kind of a run-around type of game. Especially in the museum. Read morePublished on Aug. 23 2003 by Patricia Gillespie
