I am a bit of a fan of the point and click genre and overall this game didn't disappoint. It would be nice to see the Wii revive this genre as it seemed to lose popularity towards the late nineties. Anyway, on to the game.
This isn't the best example of a point and click adventure on the Wii (check out Broken Sword which is excellent) but is pretty good in its own right. The storyline is great, an essential element for this type of game, and the graphics are also very good. Lots of beautifully rendered, interesting, varied and atmospheric locations.
You'll travel the globe picking up items and use them to solve puzzles, which I felt were very well balanced. The difficulty seemed to be just right. I did have to search for two solutions but when I did I had that "ah, of course!" reaction. So the puzzles aren't too cryptic, you just need a bit of lateral thinking.
There are only three gripes with the game. Firstly, its a bit short. I completed it in about 18 hours and that included spending quite some time pondering over the puzzles. Would have been nice to get another 4 or 5 hours out of it.
Second issue is the voice acting and some of the script. Most of the time its mediocre at best. Some of the responses are rather bizarre, while the intonation and stresses of the voices rarely seem suitable to the context.
Lastly, the character animations are a bit wooden.
So overall, the game is good and I enjoyed it. I will be purchasing the next Secret FIles. I'm glad I bought this game and would recommend it, more so to Point & Click fans.
