Now that you are playing Drac 5, is it anything like Drac 4? I was very disappointed with Drac 4. I had expected an ADVENTURE game, and it turned out to be more like a HIDDEN OBJECT game. At least that is MY opinion. Am I right to feel that way?
Dracula 5 is a continuation of Dracula 4 and the gameplay is pretty much the same. If you didn't like Dracula 4, you probably won't like Dracula 5 either -- though you do get to see the real Dracula at the end.
Why did you think Dracula 4 was like a hidden object game? Because it was short? Because it was first person? It might be similar to a casual adventure (with better production values and higher system requirements), but without hidden object screens, it's not a hidden object game.
