    The dynamic duo of Richard Castle and Kate Beckett are at it again and they need your help. You will be tasked with tracking down a killer responsible for killing innocent victims that are oddly connected. However, this isn't any ordinary killer. The crime scenes are unique and dynamic, and designed to lead you off course. With each crime, things begin to hit closer to home. Eventually an eerie pattern becomes clear during the investigation. Will you be able to find the killer before there is another victim?

    • Spot items and places from the TV show!
    • Fantastic interactive HOG scenes will keep you engaged
    • Engaging stroyline written by the creators of the show!

    Verdict From A Non-Fan
    Sunny Sunny Sunny

    BASED ON DEMO


    I don’t watch TV, so I’ve never seen the series this game is based on, and I am judging this one strictly as a stand-alone game. I also am not a fan of REALISTIC VISUALS and MAP-DRIVEN GAMEPLAY. By that I mean, no point and click adventure, you move to new scenes with a simple ‘jump’ on the map. So all things considered, you’re getting a tough reviewer here.

    And I thought it was okay. The GRAPHICS were EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAR for this sort of game. Which means the ugliness I normally associate with this style of graphics was absent. HO scenes were well-lit and the items clearly visible, also a step better than usual. Everything was very professionally done.

    The GAMEPLAY was EQUALLY DIVIDED between HOS and PUZZLES. You visit the HOs twice. They are fairly static, with a little interaction. There were puzzles and mini-games that were new to me, and every act involving an electronic device triggers some kind of puzzle, so there were quite a few.

    Not knowing the show, there were aspects of the STORY that made no sense to me, like the interaction between Castle and his family, and why a writer is a partner with a homicide detective. All else was STANDARD MURDER MYSTERY fare, very much similar to the James Patterson Women’s Murder Club game series.

    I felt the game was a little slow, by the end of the hour, I didn’t feel I’d achieved much and I still had no idea where this was heading. Still, it is a mystery after all.

    I would imagine this game will be enjoyable not only to Castle fans, but also to those gamers who enjoy realistic stories in realistic settings, but I don’t think it will set the world on fire.

    I recommend this game!

    Oh, GREAT!  Thanks for mentioning that you've not see the show, Sporty Happy bounce  I've not seen the show, either, though I love Nathan Filliion (Castle.)  I've been putting of trying the game because of it.
