Castle: Never Judge a Book by Its Cover
Castle: Never Judge a Book by it's cover
The game is fun and inviting however I'm surprised by all of the typos in the game. Since the game is based on the TV show, you would think they would do a better job of proofreading the game.

This game was a washout with me. It had no storyline and depended on the characters to carry the whole game. Which in my humble opinion they didn't do. Hogs? Pretty lame as they were missing more than not. This is not a game I would run right out and buy. Within the hour of the trial I was so bored I was ZZZZZZZZZing. I kept waiting for it to get better, as a lot of games are slow to start. It never got better.

A good game for someone new to HOG
This would be a good game for someone new to HOG. I did not like having to read every thing. Many times I did not have time to finish reading the dialog before the game had moved on. There was way too much mundane hidden object areas that finally got to be boring. I almost quit the game several times before completing it. I would only recommend this to a player new to HOG games. I liked the map. The hints gave too much info. They were more like answers than hints.

Some Obscure clues
I've never watched the TV show "Castle" and this game hasn't really encouraged me to do so. Not that it is such a bad game, but I did find that the intended use of some of the items that the player picks up during the game to be a bit silly. Apart from that it wasn't too bad, and I guess if it was purchased on discount then it would be OK ... but I've played more enjoyable games. It's probably more "clue related" than HOG.

Not my favorite hidden object game by Big Fish. Game play is a bit clumsy and the storyline doesn't flow as nicely as some of the other ones.

A very quick game
This game was OK. A little like games from the 90's where characters have no real voice. None the less I enjoyed the game,(up to a point) so purchased it and was really disappointed to discover how short it was ..... I finished the game in two short bursts.
Come on Big Fish, this was made for pure profit off the TV series, nothing else.
I would not recommend this game for purchase!

I never heard this story but I bought this game (deal), played it and I already delete it from my pc.
It's an OK game. I'm not really a big fan of hidden object game. This game is a mix between hidden object and puzzle. Oh, and mystery! I really love the puzzles though there are some that I skip. It would be great if I can play the puzzles on mini game tab on the main menu.
Overall, the graphic is great and so realistic. I really enjoyed the graphic. The main reason I bought this game.
ps: How I'm glad that I figure the suspect before that writer guy. I love detective story.

The best I can say about this HO is that it is average. The graphics/art is good, I don't like all the dark gloomy scenes that a lot of the games have currently. But, all of the HO games are the same type, and the mini-games are too long & hard. The story line was good but after the first 3 chapters the other 2 was just more of the same.
I'd recommend this to a HO beginner.

For Beginners Only
Who doesn't love Richard Castle? I am absolutely a fan but not enough to buy this game. Graphics are substandard, no voice-over and your basic IHOG with alot of point and click.
The only redeeming part of the game is the storyline which begins with a gruesome murder. Richard and CO. are in pursuit of a sadistic killer with a taste for ritualistic murder as he leaves behind his victims staged to look like characters from literary classics.
A classic who-dun-it with Castle and Kate roaming around crime scenes, picking up evidence for the Evidence Board, playign HO scenes that are junk-piled and mildly interactive and solving the simple mini-games just to make things a bit more interesting. The operative word here is SIMPLE and I suppose those who are new to HOGs may enjoy this. HOG Fans and astle Fans may find this game somewhat entertainin, I however did not. I guess I will stick to the Television this time.

I love everything Castle. He is and always will be my "Ruggedly Handsome Guy". I almost bought this game without trying the demo first. I'm so glad I didn't. A 1/4 of the way through the demo I almost fell asleep.
The graphics and mini games are OK and the storyline isn't bad, but it's SO SLOW AND BORING. Other reviewers commented on the banter between characters being realistic. I did't think so. It just didn't have the flow. I don't know, maybe I'm in a bad mood today, but as much as I want to love this game I can't.
