Nancy Drew: The Legend of the Crystal Skull

1 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Nancy Drew has been a perky young go-getter detective since the 1930s and for 70+ years she has been a role model for young women, several notable ones among them, such as Hillary Clinton, for example. Well the books have been generally critically acclaimed, but how would she fair in the newer medium of computer games? Judging from adventure #17: surprisingly well, actually.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game contains no violence and presents a strong heroine and challenging puzzles. While it doesn't have a two-player mode, it's good to play with someone else because two heads looking for clues are always better than one. There is some discussion of "hoodoo" (voodoo) beliefs and practices and New Orleans' secret societies.

  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: Nancy Drew: Legend of the Crystal Skull is another step in taking the entire Nancy Drew mystery collection into the interactive media. This time, Nancy and her friend, Bess Marvin, are going to New Orleans for a vacation. But of course, where Nancy goes, so does mystery. The graphics style or quality of Legend of the Crystal Skull doesn't differ from the line's previous installments.

  • Excerpt: I make no pretense to hide my enthusiasm for Her Interactive's Nancy Drew series of point-and-click adventure games. These games have consistently offered an exhilarating mix of memorable characters, classic plots, and challenging but not overly difficult puzzles. The production values (such as graphics, sound, music, and voice acting) are also of high quality and better than what may be expected from such budget priced games.

  • Conclusion: I have no problems in saying this is the best game in the series that I've played, and I have played a lot of them. The upgrades to the character models are now a match for the excellent voice work and sharp dialogue that has always characterized the series, and is continued in Legend of Crystal Skull. And by reducing the size and repetitiveness of the make-work puzzles, Her Interactive has done away with one of the biggest complaints about the games.

  • Conclusion: „Průměrná adventura pro ty, kteří jich ještě moc nehráli a k zaujetí jim stačí, co by znalci odmávli jako samozřejmost. Nebo pro ty, kterým se po takovýchto hrách úpěnlivě stýská.
