Product Description

Platform: PC

The mystery of the Tanguska event from the original game has been resolved, and playable characters Nina Kalenkov and Max Gruber have split up. Nina embarks on a cruise to Portugal and Max travels to Indonesia, but their separation does not last long. There has been an escalation of natural disasters around the world, and Nina's father Vladimir Kalenkov has been called upon to find out what is causing them. At the start of the game a vicar, fleeing into his church, is killed over documents prophesying the apocalypse. He manages to get the documents into the hands of Bishop Parrey, a third playable character who is tasked with keeping the documents out of the wrong hands. Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis -the world is on the brink of disaster. By the time Nina Kalenkow realizes that the recent catastrophes were caused not by nature, but by an unscrupulous secret society known as PuritasCordis, it is almost too late. While her ex-boyfriend Max, a scientist, witnesses the brutal methods of Puritas Cordis at the excavation site of an ancient Indonesian temple complex, Nina joins forces with a priest in France to investigate the connection between the secret society's sinister prophesies and the creepy leader of an ancient order. A dramatic race against time begins. Will the protagonists be able to avert the impending apocalypse?

Well, I have to say, I loved Secret Files: Tunguska, so naturally I sprang for the sequel. Which didn't start out that bad. The intro to the story was decent. But after that, it was all down hill. Yes, I also must concede that the game visually looked good throughout and had no performance issues. However, the story was badly written, the voice acting was flat, and the recording of it was terrible. Badly written jokes were also even more terribly delivered by the voice actors. What attempts at humor they had in the game were better left out.

The story: As I said, the game started out all right in the prologue. But once Nina jumped in, it went all downhill from there. Her intro to the main plot was all right, but I realized that after she got into the thick of things, she was given little to truly motivate her into participating in the story. The guy she meets, David whatshisname, a monk with the church tells her there's a big conspiracy. He offers little in the way of proof or reasons why she should jump in and help out. Yet she goes for it anyway. The Sam and Max side of things is also ridiculous and doesn't tie in well with the main plot. At some point Sam disappears for no reason and is never seen of again. She's mentioned a quick line in the epilogue, but it's as if the game designers went "oh yeah, we forgot about her" during the final editing and quickly put a hurried line about her at the end.

The voice acting as I said was very flat. There was little to no emotional inflections as the actors read their lines. And the recording was bad. There were times characters sounded like they were recorded in a bathroom or other times in a single conversation the volume would go up and then back down from one line to the next.

All in all, a very bad game. Avoid!

I didn't play this game, but my Dad did. He had been waiting for the Wii version that appears never to have been created. He enjoyed the game and said he played through a couple of times, actually. He is a big fan of Myst type games

I played the first Secret Files and I can honestly say it is one of my all time favorite games! I just started this one and I already love it.

The graphics are even better than the first and really captivates the audience. The storyline is entertaining and flows naturally. I like how it has references to the previous game, but you do not necessarily have to play the first to understand this one. As I said I just started so I haven't gotten that far, but I can't wait to see Max Gruber! I love the love story between Nina and Max and though in this game they start out broken up, I can't wait to see them get back together! This game is a lot more modern than the first, which is a welcome surprise. I like how there's action, but not gory by any means. The voice acting is great EXCEPT that they changed Nina's voice and I really hate the new voice she has! Some people thought her voice from Secret Files: Tunguska was annoying, but I found it entertaining and humorous. The game is challenging, which is great, but I wish there was a hint button or guide or something. When I finish I will probably add some things to this review, so I guess I better start gaming again!

The real reason I wrote this review, besides the game itself, is because of the seller. The game came very fast and arrived days before I expected. The disc was flawless and had no marks, dents or even scratches. When it arrived there was even a little note thanking us for buying from them! I am so happy I bought from this seller and can't wait to make another order! Thank you!
