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.
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.
