A "chilling" mystery of sabotage for tweens & up.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Nancy gets into scary situations, including being trapped by an avalanche and witnessing bomb explosions. The game provides you with a "redo" so that any time you make a fatal mistake, you're automatically brought back in time to the spot before you made the wrong decision. Because several of the puzzles are quite challenging, even when played on the "Easy" level, the game is best for ages 9 and up.

Nancy Drew The White Wolf of Icicle Creek

Family Friendly Gaming
29 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Nancy Drew has been a favorite of teenage girls for quite a few years. Nancy Drew the White Wolf of Icicle Creek (yes a very long name to say) plays in the same way Derek does. There is more interaction than in Derek, and it really feels like playing a choose your own adventure. Her Interactive was even gracious enough to leave the player a task list so they do not need to remember all the different clues, and/or what to do next.

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek

  • Summary: It’s not hard to see why Her Interactive debuted the Nancy Drew series on Wii with The White Wolf of Icicle Creek , as it already had several mini-games built-in that translate well to the platform, especially the revamped cooking section. With Junior and Senior difficulty levels (and the latter actually providing a good challenge) and smart Wii-specific additions, Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek is an excellent addition to the Wii’s burgeoning adventure game...
  • Pros: The overhaul to the cooking section is a smart one and works well on the platform. It’s not groundbreaking, but it’s much more fun., The UI is more appealing than the original game’s, and easy to navigate on Wii., The mystery is genuinely good, and the Senior difficulty level provides a decent challenge.
  • Cons: This was already a slow-paced adventure game, and the extra few seconds of load time between screens slows it down even more. It can be excruciating at times., Inventory management is still a little awkward.

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek Review

Cheat Code Central
21 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Nancy Drew’s console debut doesn’t make a huge splash, but it’s solid enough for fans that aren’t into PC gaming to take the series for a spin. The new Wii elements are nominal, and this mostly straight port seems like it belongs better on the PC. Still, the story is strong, a scalable level of challenge works well for younger or older players, and anyone who’s followed the digital adventures of Nancy Drew yet hasn’t played White Wolf will derive some enjoyment from the...

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek review (WII)

HonestGamers
20 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Nancy Drew has too much time on her hands; she's ready to take on any mystery at a moment's notice. Thanks to extra duties in this investigation, though, time isn't on her side. She has to collect laundry by noon and produce three square meals a day. If she neglects these deadlines in favor of solving puzzles, Nancy gets the boot.

Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek

The Gamers Temple
31 January 2009
  • Excerpt: The Nancy Drew series of mystery adventure games has been chugging along for quite a while on PCs, but the teen detective's latest adventure is her first to appear on consoles.  It's not surprising that Nancy Drew and the White Wolf of Icicle Creek has landed on the Wii rather than other systems - its point-and-click, mouse-driven gameplay on the PC is a natural fit for the Wii Remote controller.  All this aside, though, is White Wolf a good Wii game?
