Game Chronicles Review: Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek

GC writes: "It's not terribly surprising that the infamous teenage detective who has delighted young readers since the 1930's, Nancy Drew, has also enjoyed popularity as the star of a long series of computer and video games. Unraveling mysteries that are both intriguing and family friendly is just the kind of thing that just about any ten to fourteen year old kid (especially a girl) is going to have a blast with. As a 23-year-old kid who never grew up myself, I must confess that I too have become a fan.

In this Wii version of the PC game Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek, the young detective finds herself in the Canadian Rockies at a remote vacation lodge where sabotage, unexplained accidents, and the appearance of a mysterious white wolf weave into a case to be solved. Nancy is hired by the lodge's owner to snoop around the guest's rooms and the areas surrounding the lodge to find out who done it, why they done it, and how they done it. Nancy assumes the role of the lodge's new maid and cook so as to not arouse suspicion, and the game is split between doing tasks such as cleaning rooms and cooking meals according to a specific schedule, and looking for clues into the case."
