Not much fun
I was excited to play Bluebeard's Castle but that enthusiasm quickly diminished after just 15 minutes into the game. Moving from one scene to another seems to take forever. More time is spent waiting for the next scene than playing the game.
I really enjoy playing hidden object games but was very disappointed with this game.

NOT TOO GOOD TO ME
I couldn't get into this game. I am not sure if I didn't understand it. So, I deleted sample before I finished the hour....
Thank you! But, I still love all the games I have purchased

the mini games didn't explain well enough for me, didn't get the jest of it. Each scene was very slow loading, did not like that. I lasted for 25 minutes and trashed the game, not interested in it.Not a good HOG game for me.

you spent more time waiting for the game to proceed (going from scene to scene) than playing it

I thought it was very slow and not fun

I bought this game and sorry I wasted the money. To move from one scene to another took forever.

Don't bother!! Awful game! No direction or clear understanding of what you are to do.

I hate this game. There seem to be technical issues, there's no full screen option and there's just one game mode.

No journal, no map, no meaningful hint. And slow scene change.
This is the slowest game ever! And I mostly mean the time switching from one scene to another.
There is no helpful "hint" ... not ever. Telling me to search the grounds and castle is as annoying as it is useless.
There is no journal. I had to write all the notes on a pad. Not a pad in the game, a pad I was keeping on my desk. Either that or keep walking around constantly re-reading everything. And some of the information disappears so it cannot be re-read.
There is no map. None. Not interactive, not position, none. Which wouldn't matter so much if my notes were saved in a journal.
The story line is really good, the puzzles in the good range. Average to good graphics.
But the hint? If you're going to ask for a hint, you ought to get a hint.... or be honest and don't even bother to put in a hint button.
If not for the map, journal and hint problem, I would give this game a resounding- 4-1/2 stars. I did enjoy it outside of these.
As is, how about a negative 2?

The transitions between scenes was atrocious, each taking about 6 seconds of black screen before moving on. Placing objects in the correct place to solve puzzles was extremely difficult. This game was very, very disappointing.
