Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek

Video Game Generation
3 May 2009
  • 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.
  • 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 ch...
  • 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
15 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.

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

Common Sense Media
12 February 2009
  • 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.

  • Summary: As fiction's foremost girl detective, Nancy Drew has found herself in the midst of some pretty strange cases. The White Wolf of Icicle Creek is certainly one of her most puzzling escapades, although the biggest mystery to be solved here is why it is taking place on the Nintendo Wii.
  • Pros: Great attention to detail, Strong characterization and story, Variety of puzzles
  • Cons: Wii Remote minigames are annoying and unnecessary, PC port that doesn't feel like a Wii game, Constant load interruptions
