Bruno Bolet was the owner of the "Whisperer," a crystal skull rumored to protect its holder from any cause of death - except murder. When Bruno passed away, the skull went missing among the clutter of the creepy Bolet manor. You'll need to team up with Nancy's best friend Bess to find this mystical artifact before it falls into the wrong hands!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it! December 3, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
"Legend" is, simply, fun. HER Interactive manages to interest an enormous age range of players from 10 years old and up. And I mean UP: I am 77. I was gratified that there were no tedious chores to do in this game, however.

The story takes place in New Orleans in a spooky mansion to which is attached a huge cemetery. You have to find the Crystal Skull and determine whether the owner of the mansion, Bruno Bolet, was murdered. As usual, there are four suspects. Plenty of atmosphere to titillate young and old player hearts. You collect, of all things, glass eyeballs. One of your tasks is to find the graves of various people via outrageous puns such as Myra Maines (my remains) and Constance Norring (constant snoring). OK, OK, that may seem a bit juvenile but I laughed my head off, and of course 10 year olds will be right in their element.

The puzzles are well-integrated into the plot and they are not all that easy.Several require good mouse technique and a good eye, and at least in my case, many tries before success. However, if an old lady can succeed, so can you!

The graphics are excellent as is the voice acting.The four human suspects are well done and their mouth movements match their speech. The huge cemetery is suitably creepy. It never stops raining and I really felt quite sodden sitting here.

You encounter a potpourri of stuff including hoodoo, a lesson in dentistry, a live iguana which you dress up in costumes after enticing him with a loquat, New Orleans gumbo, a Rube Goldberg device, skeletons...what more could you ask for?

5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delving into the dark side of New Orleans... December 9, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
On Nancy's seventeenth mystery, she's plunged deep into a world of illusions, secret societies, family secrets, and dark magic in New Orleans. Nancy had only planned to visit a friend of a friend while sightseeing the French Quarter, but as fans know, nothing ever goes as planned. Orphan Henry Bolet, a self-styled Goth with dyed black hair, eyeliner, and tattoos, is the sole heir of his only relative, great-uncle Bruno. Bruno was unconventional to say the least: an unmarried dentist, he had a large collection of glass eyes (which Nancy must find throughout the game), domesticated "pets" (some more tame than others) that he trained to perform tricks, and he was caretaker of the nearby cemetery, which explains the model cemetery and list of "residents." When Nancy goes to check up on Henry, she's knocked out by a skeleton, and her sleuthing skills kick into high gear as the late Bruno's secrets come to light. He was the last known owner of The Whisperer, a crystal skull from antiquity that is said to give its owner immortality.

Bruno's mansion is filled with odd collections of games and books, and the slanting, twisted halls are bathed only in candlelight as the fierce storm has knocked out the electricity. Nancy must solve the mystery of Bruno's death and the location of the Whisperer while battling wasps, poisonous spiders, cranky alligators and other hazards. On this trip, her friend Bess Marvin provides moral (and sleuthing) support in the French Quarter. Reluctant Bess plays an important role and is the key to solving several puzzles; she must dig up clues and interview suspects in order to help the investigation progress. Players switch between Nancy and Bess by calling each other via cell phone.

There are several potential suspects in Dr.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Nancy Drew! October 17, 2007
By Georgi

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My daughters and I await each ND with anticipation. Fun scares, good thinking games and entertaining stories keep us coming back for more. Sadly, we finished it in about ten hours so now it's just a waiting game until the next one.
I love the family-friendly story line mixed with little "scares" and snares. A+++++

3.0 out of 5 stars Always Raining at the Old Mansion November 14, 2007
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This adventure has everything I look for in this type of game; a haunted house, a rainstorm (that you walk in and never get wet!), New Orleans and hints of voodoo. The characters are interesting, not annoying, and there are less phone calls than in other Nancy Drew games. I especially like the diorama that gives a miniature overview of the game sites.

The problem is that many of the puzzles are not solvable. They involve tedious trial and error for a solution that cannot be deduced by logical reasoning, or simply make no sense at all. I found myself on the cheat boards often, and felt disheartened when I realized there was no way to have figured it out myself. Play this one for the gothic dark bayou ambiance, but don't waste time if you can't 'get' the puzzle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Predictable Ending December 27, 2007
By Lori H
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Like many reviewers have stated, the creators of the Nancy Drew games seem to have been listening to us, and the more recent games have become more challenging.

I do have a few complaints with this game that my girls have stated: There were many activities, but many were very tedious and did need the cheats on the message board.

The ending was predictable. None of us had any doubt "who done it" from the very beginning.

The ending was far too easy and like my daughter stated, just didn't make any sense why they did the activity they did to escape the situation they were in.

I'm not sure I liked the idea of toying with the world of voodoo, even if they called it hoodoo.

My girls did like the idea of playing as Bess. They really enjoyed Bess' character.

Other than that, it was a fun game. Yes, I played it-I always do! It was not my favorite though. I still really like "Treasure in the Royal Tower" and "Curse of Blackmoor Manor".

A great Nancy Drew game, but I didn't like how Nancy couldn't really go anywhere but the house she's staying in. I wish there was more to look at!
