Bluebeard's Castle: Son of the Heartless 3.6 5 53 53
Based on the demo: Ack!! Where do I start? Ok... the beginning!? From the very beginning, I was struck that this game was a cartoonish nightmare with nowhere to go and it didn't seem to improve as I continued to play the demo. The voice acting not only didn't have characters to go along with same so as to involve the player in the game immediately, what voice there was, was very amateur and awkward (not believable)! The mini games were poor and disjointed and unrelated to gameplay entirely. The H0G, average, everyday, nothing out of the ordinary. I felt as though I were being instructed the entire Demo time despite the fact that I had turned off the cue bar in the Menu controls and worked in most difficult settings. To me, this game is just a mangled mess... not fun and almost painful to play. So, NOT for me.... and to think I almost purchased w/o demoing... PLEASE TRY BEFORE YOU BUY!!! February 12, 2014
Don't like it! I am sorry to disagree with the majority here, but I didn't like this at all. The story is unpleasant and leaves one wondering why the father of the hero didn't do away with random people, instead of 6 wives! Sheesh...what?? one was suspicious at the time? Also, why did the Aunt wait until the last minute to fill her nephew in..."Oh, by the way,'re gonna die soon. See ya later." ...okaaay. On to the graphics...I really dislike bad comic book style art work. Some of the drawings in the action parts were really beautiful, but all the exposition segments were in really cheap cartoon mode. Then the play value: nothing worked. I solved the mini games, but the game wouldn't acknowledge that fact, so I would have to skip, only to have the same solution given to me as I had come up with. Also, each scene took too long to load and the cursor was cumbersome and slow. The map didn't seem to be a transporter and the HO scenes had nothing interactive in them and everything is quite small. All in all, a miss for me...sorry. February 12, 2014
So Slow OK, graphics are kind-of paper doll like, but we all can live without awesome graphics, but mode of play needs to be at least good. I know this takes place in dark castles and dungeons, but when HO scenes, inventory to collect, and puzzles are so dark it's hard to see, that is taking the dark to an extreme. Puzzles directions made little sense and interaction throughout the game was very slow. HOs were OK, nothing new and rather old. Don't waste your money on the CE and if you must have it, wait for the SE. Wasn't even worth the time to load. February 12, 2014
Doesn't flow well The game takes too long between scenes and doesn't flow well. Not one I'll add to my collection. February 17, 2014
Childish at best I got this as one of my earned free games. Very glad it was free. The storyline started out okay - the puzzles became cartoony and childlike. I would not spend money on this game. March 2, 2014
Boring Bluebeard I initially thought this was going to be a great game. The artwork, colors and animation are very cool. The hint and skips fill relatively quickly, at least on the easiest level of difficulty. The sparkles are not blatant. There is a transporting map. Just my kind of game, I thought! But no, it began to be HOS after HOS, and puzzle after puzzle, with no forward movement of the plot. I enjoyed the first Bluebeard's Castle a lot and have played it more than once. Unfortunately, this game apparently has no connection to the first. I didn't play the demo long enough to find out if it would get any better, because it was simply too boring. November 1, 2014
Disappoiting compared to the first episode The minigames were really fun, but the rest of the games was dull. The storyline is truly disappointing, as if the authors really put no effort into it. This is just a bundle of miniganes and hidden objects scenes bundle together in an old-fashioned plot of "good-vs-evil", but the Bluebeard theme was looking like a useless extra. This is truly disappointing, especially compared to the first installment that was truly better. March 15, 2014
BlueBeard's Castle: Son Of The Heartless Some Puzzles not explained appropriately. Story line boring to the point that I couldn't wait for the game to finish. I would not recommend this game. March 10, 2014
Based on the demo Time has passed since the first Bluebeard was developed but very little seems to have changed: yet no full screen option, quite basic graphics and a poorly responsive mouse function. Not a buy for me. February 12, 2014
slow and boring his game is so slow and there's no help unless you wait which seems like forever. you can have this in full screen so you can see better and the colors are kind of dark and make it hard for some people to see what they are looking for February 13, 2014
