3.0 out of 5 stars Too many ridiculous puzzles!, 1 April 2010
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Secret Files: Tunguska (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
I love a good adventure game, and a puzzle game as much as anyone, but I've never had to keep looking at an online walkthrough as much as I have for this game! Some of the puzzles leave me wondering how ANYONE could've solved them without looking it up, as they were so obscure (the simplest of which involved sellotaping a mobile phone to a cat, then giving it salty food so that it would go and drink water in a house you couldnt get into, and thus record a conversation going on in there... see what I mean?).

The characters are good, as is the dialogue, but some of the 'informative' parts in both dialogue and 'diary' are pages and pages of text. It feels like one person wrote a good story and dialogue etc, and someone else was brought in to fill it with ridiculous puzzles.

Also, just to get to the main menu, every time you start, you have to let 7 seperate 'splash' screens load in succession, each for a different company who worked on the game.

Give it a go, but you'll find yourself frequently asking "what do I do now?" and "how was I meant to know to do that?"
