  1. If you’re looking for light entertainment and solid gameplay, Legend of the Crystal Skull is worth your dollar.
  2. The story is interesting and fairly long, and the puzzles are engaging. Young sleuths will keep playing to the end to find out the culprit.
  3. 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. When combined with an atmospheric and slowly unwinding storyline, these elements create an almost watertight game that even those who have grown tired of the series will enjoy.
  4. Nancy Drew: Legend of the Crystal Skull is definitely worth adding to the growing Nancy Drew catalogue. It’s a decent game for adventure fans who just want a game to play.
  5. All in all Nancy Drew: Legend of the Crystal Skull is a 'busy' game and a lot of fun to play. Put on your thinking cap for this one as it's weighted more towards puzzling than story.
  6. 75
    The Nancy Drew series may have started selling because of the perfect licensing choice, but Legend of the Crystal Skull proves they are real, sometimes challenging, adventure games.
  7. Though it has its frustrating moments, Nancy Drew: Legend of the Crystal Skull is generally an enjoyable adventure game, as well as a more satisfying title than the three games before it.
  8. It’s a point and click adventure / puzzle game, which is going to immediately turn off the hard-core gamer, but for puzzle game aficionados this one is sure to give you your money's worth.
