Rated 5 out of 5 by from IN LOVE! I'm so glad this was made... I absolutely adore the show & I love being able to directly interact with a unique case alongside the characters. It's really fun so far & I feel like a real detective, haha. The story-line is so well put together & very detailed. I highly recommend purchasing this game. Castle will forever be my favourite TV show. "Always" <3

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this game This game was really good, some puzzles were hard, but you could skip, the story was good, typical to the series. I loved it well worth the game play. A good game for all adventure seekers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game I love the TV series and love this game too. It's like watching the show but being involved. Good storyline and the characters are so real. I hope the devs make another Castle game in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spot-On Hidden Object Mystery Games based on real intellectual properties have been a bit of a mixed bag in my experience. One thing I use to measure these type of games is whether you have to be a fan of the medium itself in order to enjoy it. I'm pleased to report that it's not a requirement in this game. I'm sure it adds to some of the background of the characters, but this plays like a standard mystery and that's a good thing if you're worried about not being able to follow or enjoy it if, like me, you're not an avid watcher of the show on which the game is based. The game looks good, with realistic backgrounds and a variety of locations. Sound is fine, though it's rather disappointing that they didn't include any voices, let alone those of the actors and actresses that portray the characters. The HO search scenes are actually the easiest part of the game, which is divided into chapters. You'll show up, do some investigating, go to some various scenes, collect a bunch of stuff, and then confront a suspect with it. Actual deductions aren't really needed, as the interrogation minigame is one of the weaker ones used. It was the minigames that made me a big fan of this game, actually, as they are varied and quite difficult on the whole. You'll almost certainly figure them out, but it takes a while, and not in a frustrating way. That's really tough to do in a casual game and impressed me a lot. The story plays like a standard episode of any mystery ever, and while the logical leaps and "big reveal" might not be the stuff of legend, it wraps things up nicely while staying true to what a good mystery story should be. There's also a literary component #makes sense since Castle himself is an author# that tied things together which I quite liked. Overall, this is a straightforward yet challenging game which manages to take its subject matter and streamline it into another form excellently. Well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent game - and moreso if you're a fan of the show Hidden Object Games are usually not my thing. If you absolutely *hate* H.O.G.'s, you won't see the point in this one (a few negative reviews bear witness to that). That said, I decided to try this one because I'm already a big fan of the television show 'Castle'. I wasn't disappointed :-) There are a few plot contrivances you wouldn't find on the actual show, but by and large this game stayed true to the established characters. The hidden object scenes were not super-easy, but not super-difficult either. Actually, more time is spent on (more than 20) puzzles than on hidden objects in this game. One or two of the puzzles really took me some time to work out. It lasts a good long time (took parts of two days for me to complete) and is enjoyable overall. Glad I purchased, and it's a five-star game for me :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oh Castle, should have known.. ....Four victims, one murder and Castle is the last target? Clever story indeed, I did not expect a lot of what happened, as it is a Hidden Object game you have to travel multiple scenes to get other object for other scenes, not really like a crime show, but each search leads to each scene and is only for that scene. If a victim isn't dead you have to consider there role, I guessed but did not assume until it was nearly too late, the puzzle and games inside are a little confusing, you have to spend time on them to figure them out...which at times i did not do. Not as good as the show, but the graphics are amazing. Wish it was more like the books more then the show, but it's a Castle tale for a reason.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoroughly loved it!! You know, for a while I just wasn't interested in getting this game because I thought it would be just another ho hum murder mystery from another TV Series and that it wouldn't be all that great. And the 5 stars people gave....well....I rarely trust those because some people give 5 stars for EVERY game. Then I got a bit desperate to find a game to play and thought 'what the heck...I'll use up a coupon code'. GLAD I DID!! THIS time I actually agree with those 5 star reviews. I rarely, if ever, give 5 stars but this game.....I gotta tell ya...I HONESTLY thoroughly enjoyed. I won't go into the game details...others have done that. But if....like me....you were put off the game for any reason.....have a rethink. Hey try it with a freebie coupon. Just try it!! I'm glad I decided to give it a shot....otherwise I would've missed out on a really great game. Please Devs....do some more just like this one. You're onto a winner!!
