I'm a fan of Secret Files, but this game was just a disappointment. The puzzles were a bit more realistic, but the game was ridiculously short and the story was lacking. Not worth the 5€ I spent.

Great game if you're into secrets, puzzles and clicking on screen for clues and item combinations. Nice art style, good voice acting, story is somewhat far fetched but more or less decent.

Secret Files 3 treads on very thin ice. It's short, it's got an overly complicated plot line and just doesn't have the charm of the first two games. Not to mention the ending involved watching a 5 second long cut scene and finding out what happened after the end of the game with some images and text. Then, for no reason other than to add some 'levity' they tagged on a terrible 'outtake' reel. It fell right through the ice and died a death. At the moment, I'm not looking forward to 4/Sam Peters and I'm starting to think Deep Silver are giving up on point-n-click adventures. I'd think it was a damn shame if this game wasn't so half-hearted.

Third time's a charm they say. After another total replacement of the voice cast, they finally nailed it. The new voice acting may not be award-winning, but at least it doesn't annoy and distract anymore. Also, object interactions have a lot less "quest logic" and more life logic this time. In fact, this was pretty much the first adventure game in a long while where I didn't have to resort to any kind of extra help. This is the first game in the Secret Files franchise which I fully enjoyed and have no reason whatsoever not to recommend.

Still playable but worst of the series (haven't played Sam Peters thou). Recommended for 5 Euro or less

  • Decent voice acting – third time around they’ve finally managed to get it more or less right.
  • Very nice backgrounds and some interesting camera angles
  • Mostly logical puzzles
  • Good music

  • Character animations for performing actions – or actually lack of it. It’s really big downgrade since previous installments
  • Plot-wise its weakest of the three
  • Very week secondary characters that shows up suddenly and disappear after few moments (without a chance to hold decent conversation)
  • Character models better than in predecessors but still below average
  • Much shorter than the other two (gameplay around 6-7 hours) – not a problem for me but I think it’s worth mentioning
