As the police seem reluctant to help her, Nina sets off to look for clues relating to her father's whereabouts. She joins efforts with Max Gruber, a young colleague of her father who impulsively offers to help the attractive young lady. Together, they quickly determine that Nina's father was involved with a research expedition to Siberia in an attempt to reveal the causes of the mysterious Tunguska catastrophe of 1908. In that mysterious event, a mighty explosion triggered an inferno that decimated the land of Tunguska. Nina and Max soon realize that her father's disappearance is related to the Tunguska event and the search for answers leads Nina and Max to the most remote corners of the world – Berlin, Moscow, Cuba, China, and the Antarctic. Powerful adversaries are also interested in Nina's father's secret. In the end, much more is at stake than just the disappearance of an old man. [DreamCatcher Interactive] Expand

    Secret Files: Tunguska signifies a new era for point and click adventures, both in terms of playability and stylistically - don't miss it!
  2. Coming from an adventure game fan, I found it a very fulfilling addition to my collection, and from a relatively unknown German game developer (Fusionsphere Systems) I can offer only congratulations to them for a decent brain testing continuation of the genre.
  3. Since the game is so friendly and upbeat, it might work as a family adventure, as long as you don’t mind a few sporadic instances of profanity.
  4. It makes some small progress in freeing point-and-click from the needless bonds of tradition but is it really a compelling, imaginative experience that proves mouse-based adventuring isn't dead? Nope. Not even close.

    However, the puzzles are downright asinine, suffering from illogical design and poor execution. [Mar 2007, p.72]
  6. Even with the aid of the magnifying glass, the pacing of Tunguska's plot still crawls at a snail's pace.

    There is something wrong with the critics who gave this a low score. Look at the user votes.. One should rate this by its Genre. This is an There is something wrong with the critics who gave this a low score. Look at the user votes.. One should rate this by its Genre. This is an incredibly fun point and click game. It is very addictive and probably the best point and click i have ever played. I feel sorry for the critics as i doubt they got through it without a walkthrough, if the even got through it. Expand

    Agreed with Ben H. It's a well-worked-out game in every respect.

I haven't finished itA fairly good point and click adventure, but some of the puzzles are too difficult and their solution is too arbitrary. I haven't finished it because I'm stuck in a puzzle, and I don't know if I'll go back to try again.

    I played the French version and thought the voice acting was fine. The only problem was that the dialogue and the subtitles sometimes differed very slightly.

    The Tunguska incident really happened, but there's no mystery about it: a meteoroid exploded in the atmosphere.

    All the components of a bad Pn'C adventure are there:
    - Gormless inventory combinations. And since at times your character tells you that she won't do something until she has a good reason, it's particularly baffling: you'll endure throngs of actions that make no sense to you, the player.
    - Abysmal voice acting with intonations all other the place and ridiculous accents that make even a non English native speaker cringe.
    - Dialogues ranging from asinine to infantile.
    - Pixel hunting, despite the existence of a hot spots key.
    - Responses to a small set of possible actions only.
    - A terribly annoying main character, moreover afflicted with nasal logorrhea.
    - No humour. Or more likely failed humour.
    - Dull scenery. For a couple of nice landscapes, you'll spend most of your time in bland rooms, not to forget a truly disgusting toilet scene.
    - Generic plot, complete with conspiracy, nonsensical motivations, unrealistic science, plot-holic events, all good for a parodic game but rather distracting here.
    - All puzzles so easy that they are completed in 10 seconds tops with minimal thinking.
    - And much, much more !

    The visuals are fine. The atmospheric background sound is often quite good, although not fully translated (like the German voices heard through walls in a Cuban asylum.) The interface is average. All in all, there are worse games out there, on a technical standpoint, but this one is definitely not pleasant to play.

Déjà, oubliez-le sous un OS 64 bits, car il tente d'installer une ignominie de programme anti-copie illégal et non certifié et non signé numériquement ! heureusement que le windaube a repéré l'ignoble tentative parce que sinon, ça peut mettre une sacrée merde au prochain redémarrage...

    Ce qu'il ne fait pas ou ne voit pas toujours, le windaube, cela étant et malheureusement... mais je commence à comprendre : tout ce qui est antérieur à 2009 ou 2010, ce sera directum dans le Win XP, le système 32 bites qui aime se carrer profond toutes les protections de mes deux dans les fichiers système ! car Win 7-64 (et ultérieurs) ne mangent pas de ce pain-là !

    Quoi qu'il en soit, malgré son ambiance à complots complotistes, cette connerie de jeu d'aventure à la con verse et se renverse rapidement dans les énigmes complètement débiles, à savoir tout sauf réalistes et cohérentes...! Du "classique" dans ce sous-genre du jeu vidéo, cela dit, le genre "aventure" de mes couilles à la con des mes deux (couilles) ! Bon, bref, c'est pas bon et même que c'est de la merde, de la grosse merde !
