Nancy Drew has been sleuthing since the 1930’s and is still going strong. In “White Wolf of Icicle Creek” (abrv. ICE) she makes her debut on the Nintendo Wii. This is a remake of a version on the PC. ICE is a point and click adventure which has you traveling to Canada in order to solve a mystery of sabotage. The game lasts about 10 hours, and isn’t very entertaining. Different chores you must do every in-game morning (cooking, cleaning) become repetitive and annoying. There are loading times sprinkled throughout the game which detracts from the game immensely. To look on the bright side, characters are bright and colorful with distinct personalities and puzzles are realistic and fun. Now, let’s go back to the flaws. My main complaint can be summoned up with two words; motion controls. Using motion controls for cooking, throwing snowballs, and solving puzzles sounds great, but the controls are so broken, words cannot describe how bad it is. Instead of doing “realistic throwing motions” I had to shake my Wiimote like a soda can, I felt like a fool. My review may sound I am only pointing out a bunch of negative elements, but there aren’t many positive factors involved. Nancy Drew is awesome, but this game isn’t doing her any justice. Case Closed.
