The explosion could be heard within a radius of 1,000km. Witnesses saw an oblong object, glowing in a blueish-white light, fall from the sky. A 20km high pillar of light was followed by a mushroom-shaped black cloud. The three following nights were so bright all over Europe that you could read a newspaper outside without additional light. In California, on the other hand, they noted a continuing reduction of sun light. Up to this day it is still not clear what really triggered the Tunguska catastrophe. Expand

  1. Secret Files: Tunguska is a strong PC adventure game that's made a very successful transition to the Wii.
  2. 71
    It delivers a solid gaming experience that will at no point blow you away but will chug along nicely for about ten hours, and so will probably deliver your moneys worth.
  3. Progress can be slow - laborious, even - but you very rarely feel cheated. [June 2008, p.82]
  4. The genre's as old as the hills, and moust pointer to remote pointer is hardly a great leap. [July 2008, p.59]
  5. There are problems, but fans of the genre will be able to look past these imperfections and see that this is a far superior game to Agatha Christie. But even so, this is still an average game, especially when compared to the best of the Wii library.
  6. While it's true that Secret Files: Tunguska does get one or two brownie points for being in what’s currently a very sparsely populated genre on the Wii, the fact that it’s so middling in just about every respect hardly justifies a purchase.
  7. Dedicated genre fans, meanwhile, will find that the concessions in the gameplay – pre-highlighted hot spots and rumble hints – are both insulting to their intelligence and at odds with the entire point of the adventure genre. [June 2008, p.123]

Bought the Wii version, just to see if its any different. It´s not - and thats actually good. Excellent story, very humorous and entertaining and most important: logical from the beginning. No stupid trial and error combination orgies, everything works as it is supposed to. Collapse
