excellent game, the map is great considering how much the player has to move between scenes. mini puzzles were sometimes a big challenge that I had to skip. would like to see more of this series in the future.

Okay this was really cool I played it all the way through which is rare for me. I usually get bored and quit.

This was one of the better HOG's that I have played. I really enjoyed the story and characters. I liked that they included so many different locations. Even though there was a bit of back and forth, it was indicated by the map feature where you still needed to go and this kept it all manageable. There was variety in the hidden object scenes, and I really like that there was no penalty for rapid clicking. The objects weren't too hard to find, but you had to be specific about adding items together. This also applied to objects you needed to use at the scenes. The game was a bit selective about angles amd so on, so my advice would be to keep trying an object if you think it goes there. The game moved at a good pace and there was not too much dialogue. It stayed interesting! I would recommend this game, especially if you like the show. I just marked down a little for the gameplay issues and the difficulty of the side games. Hard!

I've never seen the TV series and don't care to, but the game has an interesting story line and enough of a mystery to be entertaining even without the TV series background.

I've played quite a few HO games but this one had the best, by far, mini puzzles. The HO scenes were good, but the puzzles I found most challenging. I didn't have to skip any, but they really forced me to think. That's my favorite kind of game. Nice graphics. The only "downside" (and it actually just made the game too easy) was that the map gave you exactly the location that you needed to get to in order to accomplish something. That's nice, but definitely made the game go super fast. Overall, I really liked it.

I watch the TV series, so that may have added to my enjoyment, but I really liked this game, from a number of standpoints. First, the graphics were of very good quality, and the scenes were well drawn. Second, the HO scenes were of medium difficulty--a little easy for seasoned HOG players, but not too difficult for young people or those who find small items hard to see. Third, and most important for me, a lot of the mini games were unique, and some were fairly difficult, which always adds a lot to the game. On the negative side, there were no voiceovers, so there were a lot of dialogue boxes to be read. I also found the cursor to be quite clunky; it felt like I was pointing at items with a balled-up fist. Never-the-less, these minor annoyances did not detract from the overall enjoyment of the game. Older kids will probably like this too. There is no objectionable language or provocative themes.

What a great game! The HO scenes were easy to see, not dark at all for a change, and the story was interesting. Thank heavens for the map because there is a lot of back and forth to collect objects you need in another scene. The mini games were different than the usual and some of them were difficult for me, but they can be skipped. More like this, please!

love the TV program, Castle, so this game was a hoot. the characters really look so much like their TV personas, and it was cool helping them solve the case. i liked the mini games. the HO scenes were minimally challenging, but that didn't take away from the game for me. can't wait for the next one....

I really enjoyed the PC hidden object game "Castle: Never Judge a Book by the Cover"! The characters, dialogue, and interesting crime were spot-on! This is a longer game than some with many twists and turns. I'm not sure that kids would be able to stay on track with it, but, I know adults who enjoy Castle on TV will like it. The hidden object sections were moderately tricky. I did find some of the mini-puzzles to be so challenging that I finally had to use the convenient "skip" option more than once. I want to try those again later on when I replay it! I'm ready for another Castle game as soon as it comes out!

I read several reviews that really like this game. Maybe it's because I never saw the series. I found it boring and the dialogue endless. I didn't finish it, and I usually stick through to the bitter ends of even less engaging games.

Fun game, and it took several hours to play through. Mini puzzles are challenging, and there are not so many HOS to make them monotonous.

This game is exactly like Castle. I love it. This was so much fun. Im going to play this over and over. I love the show and the game. The talking is exactly their banter back and forth. Awesome game. It was challenging, engaging, lots of fun. And, several chapters. Worth every minute. I cant wait for their next one. Thanks so much.

A real good detective story. Easy to start the game but gets harder and have to think to keep going. Interplay between characters is great. Just like the series.

Graphics were good. A little to much dialogue for me.

Really enjoyed this game. Great story line, a map (thank God) fairly easy HO scenes and really interesting interaction. Game moves along at a really good pace and the detective work is just a lot of fun. Highly recommend this one.

That was on my mind who does this?? I love the TV show and the game came close really close to perfect. Great game to play when boredom strikes.

Really enjoyed this game. It has an interesting story line and was very fun to play. Some of the minigames took a bit of thought to figure out, but you have a hint but to help. I think you will really enjoy this game.

I have never seen the series, that perhaps explains why i didnt fall inlove with this game. But it was ok.
