If you're searching for an intriguing mystery or an entertaining game you must try Nancy Drew: Legend of the Crystal Skull. The Nancy Drew series of games has outperformed many other series, making it the best-selling PC action adventure series. Nancy Drew is a teenage investigator who has miraculously managed to stay 18 years old since the series began in 1930. Her Crystal Skull is the seventeenth wonder video game.
Nancy Drew, goes on a pleasant trip to New Orleans with Bess Marvin, one of her closest pals. You drop over to see how Henry Bolet, a friend of your boyfriend, is doing. His great-uncle Bruno, the last member of his family, has recently passed away, leaving Henry in charge of handling the estate. But as soon as you get there, someone in a skeleton costume knocks you out, and you quickly learn that Bruno Bolet had been the proud owner of "Whisperer," a crystal skull. The skull never was discovered among the chaos of the unsettling Bolet manor when Bruno died. To uncover this mystical artefact before it ends up in the wrong hands, you'll now need to work with Bess by meeting Bruno's pet spider, alligator, and iguana and using candles to see your way around the estate.
Legend of Crystal Skull allows players to explore Bruno's estate by clicking on and examining various items. When the cursor passes over an item of interest, it is highlighted in red and can be clicked on. This item of interest may be one to add to the inventory. Items may include a note of significance, a quick read for signs, a riddle to solve (like tile puzzles, decipherable locks, or image challenges). The emphasis must be on exploring the grounds, which include the mansion as well as the various family mausoleums, magnificent arches, and lush gardens.
The start screen is quite interesting because it provides a summary of all sixteen previous mysteries in the form of a scrapbook in addition to the backstory file for this particular case. The "Junior Detective" mode, which includes simpler riddles and a task list to assist you keep a record of all the various leads you have to follow up on, is an option for those who are younger (or lazier) than the recommended age range of 10 for the game. You will be carries a bag for inventory, a notebook for observations, and a mobile phone for calling your buddies. Once you discover their phone numbers later, you can also call contacts to question them.
You have to choose responses to questions from a list on the screen, whether it's the melancholy Henry, the quirky housekeeper Renee, Bruno's buddy Dr. Buford, or antique store owner Lamont. More questions will emerge in the dialogue box as Nancy proceeds in her investigation. For instance, early in the game, Renee offers Nancy an odd liquid concoction; you can either accept it or decline it, but the result is the same regardless of your decision.
There is no denying that the game's graphics, sound, and music are nicely done. Pre-rendered animated moments and the typical in-game motions of individuals are much more detailed than before. The characters have realistic facial emotions and movement. The music, sound effects, and conversation all enhance the overall experience.
Nancy & Bess are split up at the beginning of the game, with Nancy left inside the old Bolet home without electricity and Bess left on her own at the town hotel. The two girls are, fortunately, only a phone conversation apart from one another. You will need to play as both of the girls in order to get all the information necessary to crack the case.

The game plays in a different manner on these two difficulties, so it's worthwhile replaying it just to get this additional experience. Fortunately, the game isn't too long to make this painful; rather, you'll spend most of your time listening to the fully audible dialogues.
