I really like this game! I bought it recently, because I played it in my childhood, hitting Pat Shelton with a shovel a milion times... Ah, fourth wall breaking.

Some of the puzzles might need a bit of thinking, and voiceacting isn't the best, but overall this game is pretty good. For 2009 atleast :)

This game taught me a lot. But the best moral is: "Everyone should have his stove door" :D

If you like point & click adventure games you will enjoy this. This is the sequel to Secret Files: Tunguska.

I enjoyed the first one, though many of the flaws are still present in the sequel. The voice acting is atrocious, with dialogue seemingly dragging on forever with pointless conversations that really don't need to be as long as they are.

The puzzles are... random and often don't make sense. I've played a lot of point-and-click adventures over the years, but even I had to resort to reading walkthroughs occasionally. Rather than solving puzzles through logic, often it is a simple case of clicking on every item in your inventory until one of them works.

A pretty good traditional point and click adventure game.
I wanted to sit back, solve puzzles and zone out to lots of dialog and this game delivered.
I like it better than the first game. They both took me about 8 hours to get through.
The only bad thing is the voice of Max in this game is super terrible. He hams it up and is over the top in a bad way. His monolouge voice is the worst thing ever. Nina's new voice actress isn't bad. She likes to chew the scenery a lot. I thought she was Sisko from DS9 a few times.

Anyway not a bad game if you like this genre. Lost Horizon is a bit better tho.

Very mediocre. Only for point and click freaks. Voice acting feels amateurish. Story is not every good. Humor is embarrassingly bad. Lot of the puzzles don't make much sense. Some are fun though. The first game was alot better.

Another great installment in the Secret Files series. There was one major improvement over the previous game that I enjoyed:

- Running. Finally the opportunity to move quicker across scenes. It automatically kicks in when the player has to traverse at least half the screen but I'll take any improvement over slow walking

Graphics have improved slightly over the previous game. The character models are animated a bit better now although they still suffer from a lack of expression. Given the smaller studio, it's not a deal breaker.

Voice acting has larger discrepancies as far as quality goes. There are vastly more areas where it looks like the actor tried to act funny but it comes off as a bit trying too hard. There were still areas where the dialog/writing was actually quite apt and I laughed out loud at the jokes. The major issue I had with the voices was the change from the previous game. The main character's voice deepened quite a bit. Granted I overall like the new voice actess, she comes off more dry; the first game's actress, while grating at times, actually had better emotional projection overall.

It's still one of the shorter adventure games I've played but one can still see the love and effort the developers put into the game.

Overall I enojyed the game and it's a welcome addition to anyone's adventure collection. Still recommend getting it when it's on sale as for the price, I do enjoy Telltale games more than this.

Overall a good point and click adventure, The first one was a bit better, but this one did have an interesting story. Nina still uses some really bad puns that are so bad they are kinda funny.

Very good aventure game. Not overly difficult, but not just dialog and finding and combining objects either. With patience it is solvable, a few puzzles are annoying and not obvious. At no point will the game get so discouraging that you'll end up giving up and using a walkthrough to get through the whole thing.

The game is funny when it wants to be, and dramatic too. Overall this is a great adventure. Highly recommended. I'd already played Tunguska, and I'm looking forward to Secret Files 3 based on this game.

Did see wierd bug where the characters walked being the background image sometimes. This is noticeable in one of the first areas, there is an infirmary on the ship and I saw it there as well as a few other places. Might be video card specific. Not bad, but just in case you end up looking at a screen and wondering why characters are talking but nothing is there, that's why.

Good game though it seems pretty budget to me. Totally worth your while if you get it with a 75% discount.

I finished the first Secret Files on the Wii, and I have to say that Part 2 so far is much nicer. The graphics are much better and the controls on the mouse are much easier to use. I like how the game ties into part 1 nicely.

Whilst not as good as the original Secret Files, this sequel does have its highlights and features an engaging plot. Worth buying if you want to know what happened next in the lives of Nina Kalenkov and Max Gruber.

Still an ok game but much worse than first part

What’s better
  • Backgrounds looks much better and are animated
  • Character graphics are a little bit better … but just a little bit
What’s worse
  • VOICE ACTING !!! – What definitely was the worst part of previous installment actually got even worse. Voices of secondary characters are ok but main cast will probably annoy you as hell. Sometimes they can sound pretty decent but most of the time dialogs (and monologs) are WAY overreacted or use completely wrong intonation for given scene.
  • Some illogical puzzles – not much but still. Plus for me one case of pixel hunting (yes even with hotspot highlighting)
  • Plot is still ok but weaker then in predecessor

not so bad, still old school. pros: main character's voice improved, main plot entertaining. cons: even easier, interactions too easy to spot on the background.

This is a pitiful excuse for a game and a disgrace for the genre. I clawed my way through it, and by the time I was halfway through I was THIS close to going insane from:

-) the lousy voice acting
-) the wannabe funny dialogues, that end up being nothing short of awkwardly bad
-) the ludicrous story and
-) the disastrous "riddles".

Here's a random example of the latter: Find random "noisemaker" on the ground at a zoo, use it to lure a pair of DUCKS halfway through Paris back to the Zoo so that the zookeeper will give you one of the baguettes he's convieniently sharing to feed them, give baguette to homeless man who apparently spent his entire life waiting for such a selfless act and immediately turns sober so that you can have his old booze, which you then use to be incarcerated for being drunk only to bust back out 5 minutes later with about the lamest of explanations).

In short, this game tries, it really does. But it just falls short in pretty much every aspect that make an adventure game good, and just makes for a very tedious experience of about 4 hours from start to finish. Avoid if you can.
