My daughter enjoyed the ol adventure games.

Summary: This is a great Daddy(or Mom)/Daughter bonding activity where you can sit down together to explore and solve puzzles. This was our first Nancy Drew game and while my daughter was a little too young to solve all the logic problems she did manage to solve quite a bit of them. My daughter really appreciated assuming a female role and Her interactive seems to have the market cornered in girl friendly games. We enjoyed the experience that we bought another Nancy drew game.
Summary: It's been a while since I've finished Legend of the Crystal Skull, but whenever I hear about the series, this game always comes to mind. Rather it's the fact that this is one of the only games in the Nancy Drew series that actually involve being in a morbid place such as a cemetery, or the fact that the central plot of the game revolves around a murder, this game is probably the only game in the Nancy Drew series that comes close to solving a murder mystery.
Summary: For fans of the Nancy Drew games, this is one of the better ones. This game features Nancy in New Orleans trying to unlock the secrets of a creepy old mansion possibly haunted by a legendary crystal skull. Nancy investigates the mansion, and her friend Bess handles the neighborhood around their hotel, including a voodoo supply shop. This game has many of the elements that make Nancy Drew games great.
Summary: I liked this one, it wasn't terrible or great but I liked it all the same. Its a good game about a crystal skull that supposedly has magical powers that keep the beholder alive forever. But recently the owner died of a heart attack and the skull went missing. Hmm....foul play maybe? Find out what happens as Nancy Drew herself in the Legend of the Crystal Skull.
Summary: I have played many of the ND games and this one I consider better than most. The story line is engaging and the puzzles are not too overly difficult. There are also a variety of interesting characters to interact with.
Summary: I'll be honest, I really didn't think I was going to like this game. I'm not into the whole creepy, night-time, graveyard kind of thing. I wouldn't have even gotten this game if it didn't come in a Double Dare pack with another game I really wanted to play. So imagine my surprise when I played it and discovered that I really liked it! I'm going to split my review up into different sections so I can give the game a more accurate rating.
Summary: In this mystery, Nancy's off to New Orleans to check up on one of Ned's friends, Henry Bolet. His only living relative has just died. Nancy thinks she is going to be able to just enjoy New Orleans and go on a real vacation for once, until she finds out she's got a mystery on her hands and a very scary one at that. Expect an opening scene that makes you scream louder than you ever have before. This game is very scary in various parts.
Summary: Now, you can decide from my title whether this is the game for you, as like I said, this game isn't that scary or hard. There were maybe 3 scary scenes but nothing like "Curse of Blackmoor Manor" and there were maybe 3 puzzles that took me a long time to solve, but nothing like "Secret of the Scarlet Hand." Story-You and Bess are vacationing in New Orleans and while you're there, Ned has asked you to check up on a guy he knows.
Summary: To me, this ND game had fantastic graphics and was a decent mystery compared to other previous games, but it was VERY difficult. I think I had to look up walkthroughs on the internet for the entire game! I enjoyed the new features like switching between characters, though. Honestly, I liked playing as Bess more because she got to do the fun stuff, and it was a lot less hard. I was also disappointed with the ending; I knew from the beginning who the culprit was.
