Nancy Drew: The Final Scene puts the player in a race against time searching for a kidnap victim being held captive in an historic theater.
Shortly after Nancys friend, Maya Nguyen, enters the mens dressing room to interview movie star Brady Armstrong, Nancy hears a blood-curdling scream for help. Nancy rushes into the dressing room but Maya is nowhere to be seen. Seconds later, Nancy receives a call from Mayas kidnapper threatening Mayas life unless Nancy puts a stop to the demolition of the old theater. Nancy has three days, before the building is destroyed, to figure out how best to help her friend. Does she try to stop the demolition of the theater thereby guaranteeing release of her friend by the kidnapper or does she concentrate her efforts on finding and rescuing Maya herself? Nancy is on her own since the police dont believe that Maya has been kidnapped and as she enters a world of peeling wallpaper, graffiti and stained walls, she must keep a cool head in order to find her friend before time runs out.
Nancy travels to St. Louis to visit her old friend Maya and attend the premiere of a new blockbuster movie at the Royal Palladium Theater. The historic theater is scheduled for demolition in just three days and Maya is covering the controversial story. But when Maya is kidnapped just before her big interview with the movie's leading man, Brady Armstrong, Nancy's night out at the movies turns into a nightmare.
She's convinced that the kidnapper is hiding Maya in the mysterious theater in a desperate attempt to halt the demolition, but no one believes her. Nancy must juggle her efforts between searching for her friend, proving to the police that Maya is really in the theater, and finding a way to stop the demolition. It's not long before Nancy begins to unravel the tangled history of the theater's ownership, a web of secret deals and betrayals surrounding Harry Houdini, the world's greatest escape artist.
Will this information help Nancy save the day? Can Nancy afford to gamble with time when her friend's days are numbered? Play the game and find out. Use your best detective skills to explore this once grand theater in a frantic quest for clues, secret passageways, hidden rooms--anything that will help you find your friend. Her life depends on it. Tick-tock!

I got this game many years ago when I was younger and I played it all the time. It could actually be rather challenging, and I recall never being able make it through Day 2 of the game. I recently picked the game back up and I really enjoyed it. I did complete it for the first time as well, and I must say it was a blast. The old theatre in which the game is set can be flat out unnerving at times, and the people you meet and interview all seem to have ulterior motives.
The game can be suspenseful and sometimes challenging. You often find yourself running around, wondering where you should look for clues next, only to find a very tiny clue in the most random area. Sometimes you don't know what to do, or if you're going the right way. One minute you think you're figuring things out, the next minute you're stuck because you don't have X item and you need X item in order to advance.
If you were/are a fan of those point and click style PC games, this game and some of the other Nancy Drew titles are well worth checking out.
That is what starts the game, "The Final Scene" and let me tell you, it is exciting as it sounds. You can get behind Nancy 100% and you have to find Maya! I've played this game nearing 10 times and I do have to say it's one of my favorites. There are a wide range of challenges to deal with, each unique in there own ways. The graphics and movement in this game are wonderful and great for this type of game.
If you've never played a Nancy Drew/Herinteractive game before, I assure you you will fall in love! I've been into Herinteractive's games for about 2 years and I absolutely love them! They never seem to get old, and with new ones coming out each year you always have something to look forward too.
So if you're thinking about buying, The Final Scene, you won't be disappointed, weather this is your first ND game or your 10th!
