Brides and Banshees

Apr 20, 2015 by Miri

Nancy is in Ireland, she's going to be Kyler Mallory's maid of honor, but as soon as she arrives she discovers that the groom has vanished into thin air!

Was he spirited away by fairies, did he get cold feet, or was he taken away by someone all too human?

Explore the ruins of Castle Malloy, is there really a Banshee stalking the dark lonely grounds? Visit the local pub, play the drums, make drinks, and play difference detective! I love the Irish music in this...I wish we'd gotten to play in an Irish city though. Great game, wonderful atmosphere.

Wonderfully captivating!

Haunting of Castle Malloy was wonderful! It had a great plot. I loved the characters and the splash of Ireland facts. The countryside in the game is amazing. It really felt like an old castle close to the middle of nowhere, where anything, and everything could jump out of the shadows. It wasn't your typical Find the missing person game. The puzzles are unique just like the plot. And getting a glimpse of people who had been in Nancy's life previously was great. I always love those little tidbits. I highly recommend this game for any Nancy Drew lover, and especially for any one who loves adventure games!

This is by far one of my favorite games in my collection. This game includes some of the classic puzzles with a twist, you'll find yourself learning a lot about Irish lore among other things. This is one of those games I keep coming back too, even though I know how it ends just because the story line and puzzles that come with it are so amazing, not to mention the astounding graphics of the castle.
If you are new to ND games, I would definitely recommend this one to add to your beginning collection as it one of the best.

Even though i was scared everytime the banshee appeared and went into Fiona's room and heard the screeching, I LOVED IT. You can really get Irish culture in this by being a mixing maid and playing drums. This game has an overall sad story, with the right amount of creepy to make you love it. The characters seem genuine and you get a jetpack at some point, sooo bonus! The amount of creepiness is enough to make you curious but exciting. DEFINATELY PURCHASE!!!

Loved the Story and Puzzles

This game has one of the most interesting background stories of the series. Learning about the castle's history and how the puzzles connected to that history was wonderful and felt very engaging to the story. Also really liked the fact that Nancy could walk around the grounds and the puzzles that the game provided. Great job overall!!

Beautiful Game

This is a fun game with a spooky atmosphere. It is one of my favorite games. The beautiful Irish countryside and the ruined castle where prominent features of this game. A beautiful soundtrack of Irish-themed music makes this experience complete. It had an interesting twist to the resolution to the mystery. It love it.

One of the Best

Oct 03, 2014 by Jennifer Lonergan

This game is honestly one of my favorite Nancy Drew games. I own and have played each and every game, and while each one has their own merits they also each have a feature that makes them stand out above the rest. For me, this game stands above the rest. The story is interesting, engaging, and thrilling. The end result is one I definitely did not see coming, but it was incredible! The scare factor is pretty good, not as scary as games like SAW, but I think the scare factor in this game works really well. The characters are well developed and really fun to learn about. I keep wishing that they make returns in future games because some of them were really fun to talk to. It is the type of game that keeps you interested the whole time, and you won't want to stop playing until you solve the mystery! It really is a load of fun, and I seriously recommend this game to EVERYONE :) I've played them all, and this game truly is the best.
