GameZone writes: " Nancy Drew Clue Bender Society is one of those games that at first appears to have a lot going for it, but unfortunately, ultimately fails to deliver. The story is promising, the visuals look good, there are mini-games that can be played over again, and there are even snowmobiles to ride, but the total package is less than its parts.
In the beginning of the game, it all looks great. We actually get to see Nancy this time, and she looks really cute. She has been invited to join a puzzle society, and has to prove herself worthy of the invitation. Cool, solve puzzles and beat out the other invitees! And, of course, there is a mystery to solve. It seems that the cornerstone of the ultimate puzzle is missing, and the society needs Nancy's help to find it."
