Tunguska does shake things up a bit with a handy new feature. You can click on the magnifying glass icon at any point to highlight every item in the room that Nina can interact with. This welcome feature cuts out a lot of dead time and helps move the story along.
Unfortunately, even with the aid of the magnifying glass, the pacing of Tunguska's plot still crawls at a snail's pace. The mystery surrounding Nina's father's abduction and the Tunguska event is revealed all at once during the last few minutes of the game and is a major letdown. The voice acting will also grate your ears, with Nina's squeaky teenage voice as Tunguska's worst offender. Couple that with unconvincing performances from the rest of the cast and you'll find yourself skipping through the game's lengthy and frequent dialogues as fast as your right-clicking finger will allow in this good looking, yet derivative adventure title.
