Hello my fellow steam reviewers and review readers. This is my first review and I hope it will help you along as other reviews did for me!
First things first, the game looks good. I like both, the style and the effects. Well I guess that's it with the good things.
The first hour was fun. After that it became really boring. All you do is clicking the enemies dead. You spam your fireball and in the few cases the enemies would reach you, you will cast a second spell. That's it. That's the gameplay. Until lvl 10 you will have 3 offensive spells. You won't need them. Fireball and a poisencloud from time to time is more than enough.
If you reach lvl 10 you will get another offensive spell. Nothing more to achieve.
As you might noticed I played a mage. I can't tell if the other classes are more fun. Since it is told that the mage is the most vulnerable character I would assume, they are at least as boring as the mage.
Let's talk about two other points that are very important talking about a Hack & Slay title:
Loot: There is loot but everything is kind of waste. It's all the same in different colors. You will get something rare from time to time. But you don't feel any difference between the grey standard gear or the epic gear that will drop from time to time.
The second point are the enemies. It might be the second worst part after the gameplay: it is always the same. Spiders everywhere. Two fireballs and they are dead. But there are lots of them. I don't know why you design a game without a few different monsters. After two hours of game time I've seen about 6 to 8 different monsters. Some have more HP than the others, some have a gun and therefore a range attack. But it doesn't matter if you fight a skeleton, a dwarf or a red spider that throws fireballs. It remains the same. No differences in behavior - no challenge. It gets really boring and is nothing compared to other titles in this genre.

Greetings,
Wave

It's a beutiful sunday evening. The sun is shining bright on the skye, and the fresh sping air is streaming into my newly cut nosehairs. Outside the grass is growing faster than the snow can melt. The children is playing happily on the playground, while their parents are washing the cars and trimming the lawns/hedges. 10/10

This is small, but decent game. It could definitely be much more - it certainly has the potential. Story is very simple - in the current state is's simply an excuse for going around, killing hundreds of creatures. This is probably the biggest issue. Gameplay is OK - again, nothing to write home about, but serves its purpose. This is probably going to be interesting to the people that are either hardcore ARPG fans, or that are looking for a game they can play between some "more serious" titles.

I get the impression that a lot of negative reviews are not fair - this game certainly cannot compete with Diablo 3, Path of Exile, Adventures of Van Helsing, or similar titles, but it is still an OK game. I've seen (and played) much, much worse.

Oh, and there are far too many spiders! :D

I just recomend it as a time waster, and it's not worth more than 2€. level design it's uninspired, looting is pointless (almost always), characters abilities are basic, enemies are quite stupid and so on, but if you're going to play it for 10 minutes before going out or stuff like that it's a fun game.

Good enough game if you play it in stages, dont try play it all at once or you will get super bored since its super repetitive. The items are pointless and dont offer a big enough stat difference to really bother upgrading. Skills are boring and not really worth exploring all of them and storyline is weak but atleast there is one. To much reading in this game and not enough narration and i dont like that some of the tutorials disappear while your reading them just because some enemy shows up while story line messages stay on screen during battles. Game takes 5 hours to complete all main missions and side missions. Didnt see any coop to this game just single player but i probably wasnt looking hard enough. Not exactly a RPG more a linear follow a path and hold left click game. But still I had fun playing it in parts over a couple days, dont try play it all at once, it isnt that enjoyable...

Inspired by games like the Diablo franchise or Torchlight, Realms of Ancient War is an old school hack and slash dungeon crawler with very limited depth and breadth that is hard to overlook even tough it isn't a triple-A title. The story in the game is not the worst we've seen so far, in all honesty it's fairly interesting and one of the stronger points of the game. The game starts years after the so called Ancient War which divided the land to 4 territories (East, West, South and North...duh, imagination at it's best). The Northern King proposed truce so he invited the remaining kings to the Hero's Garden. Something went wrong because the Northern King was never to be seen again and the rest of the kings became soulless zombies. Yes, clichés after clichés, but it's not all that bad. The game contains some witty dialogues and turns.

We can pick from 3 unnamed characters: wizard, warrior and rogue. Each have different styles but they aren't that different that any would change the gameplay significantly. Each class has it's own skill tree, where you can level up your attacks. There are 1 level and 3 level skills. Skills open up gradually. The first group right after the beginning of the game, the second after you reach lvl 10, the last after lvl 20. However, there are two problems related to your skill management. First, in every stage you can gain exactly one level. No matter how much you fight or how many side quest (there aren't that many) you complete. You can only get 1 skill point in each stage. That makes the whole level grinding procedure useless and dropping all the challenge. You will get your skill point no matter what.

The second problem comes with the use of your skills. You have only 4 skills at your use at a given time. Two of them are to be activated with the mouse and two with keystrokes on the keyboard. You can program these skills to the aforementioned buttons. If you want to use other skills you have to use the alternative set. Essentially you have 2 sets of skills, which can be changed at any time with a button push. Easy enough, in theory at least. Practice is a different beast. Remembering which skill you have assigned to which button in which set is pointless, painful and horrible. When a dozens of foes are attacking you there is no way this system can be use properly. Using this method is understandable on consoles where there are limited buttons to use, but on a PC it's unacceptable. This is where you realize that 4 skills/attacks are well enough to complete the game.

At least the fighting and hack'n slashing is exciting. You are continuously attacked by tens of enemies, making the game challenging and intense. Sometimes it is hard to hit smaller enemies, like spiders which live everywhere, rain forests or volcanoes it doesn't matter for them. Graphically the game doesn't excel, but it's not bad either. For an XBLA title it's passable. Not are the audio tracks though. Audio effects are horrible and repeating. Listening to the same 3 grindings throughout 8-10 hours when you hit enemies is annoying. The music is on par with the rest of the audio. You get one passable song which plays when you start the game, the rest of the music tracks during gameplay are just pointless burrs.

R.A.W. is a below average hack and slash game that tries to build upon it's great predecessors of the genre but fails in every possible way. It's chaotic, mediocre and boring. A game that is hard to recommend when you can get a dozen of it's kind cheaper (or even for free). If you can finish it once there is no point starting the game ever again.

Rating: 45/100; Replay Value: 1/5; To Beat: 8-9 hours; Played on: normal.

There are minor annoyances in the game, like having you confirm every single item you sell over and over, or not being able to hit a small creature like a spider that you are pointing at directly. Then there are bigger issues, like ranged enemies attacking you outside the camera view or masses of enemies suddenly spawning en masse right next to you. But it was at the point I spawned into a new room just to receive an attack from a ranged enemy that I gave up on this game.

Realms of Ancient War feels like a first attempt at a Diablo style action-RPG which is fine as I'll play anything half decent. Unfortunately, this game does not qualify. It seemed the only way this game could provide a challenge is by swarming you with enemies that weren't on the same spot a second ago. Or you may be trapped in a tiny area with no room to move around while fighting a boss. Obviously things like this give the player a bad impression as opposed to any sense of challenge. It seems I'm spending all my time attacking dwarves and spiders with the occasional lizard.

Environment serves mostly to get in the way if you're a bow or magic wielder. Even small rocks just above the ground can block your ranged weapons. To make matters worse, they console-ify the game by limiting you to four available skills at one time along with a health and mana potion. That reminds me a little too much of the limiting skillset of Diablo 3. You can switch to a second skill set by pressing Tab while using the same keys, but that is terribly unintuitive compared to just giving us the action keys we need. Keys are not rebindable either.

I made it to level 10 but could not continue any further. I suspect most will drop the game before this point.

Hold left mouse button to move, hold left mouse button to attack.

You're encouraged to make ranged attacks but due to the zoom level most times you can't see what's coming until it's htting you.

99% of the loot is useless & sold for gold which is also useless. You'll pick up some good armour, level-upgrade some basic active & passive abilities, and be set for the rest of the game. You also get enough XP to unlock almost every skill upgrade so you don't have to choose wisely, and if you die you're resurrected instantly to carry on.

The whole thing is so bland & so generic, the story is bog standard fare & the ending is equally unengrossing. Enemies are mostly the same throughout despite 4 seasonal flavours to the map, and there's only a couple of places where you think 'oh that looks nice'.

If this game were on an ECG it would be close to flatline. Just a few hours of holding the left mouse button,
Not worth the time or the money, buy something else. If you already own it, play something else. Anything else.

This is one of those titles that you should not play unless you know what to expect going into it. On the surface, R.A.W. is another Diablo-style hack & slash RPG lootfest wherein you slay endless waves of strikingly homogenous minions and swap gear out for marginally better gear. In this respect, R.A.W. succeeds where many others succeed and fails where many others fail; gameplay is satisfying (if repetitive at times), programming is relatively bug-free, and the story is... well.. there's a story at least, some games don't even have that. What R.A.W. provides for Steam, however, is all of this formula that can be enjoyed both with a controller and with a local friend. If you own at least one 360 controller, you and a friend can enjoy quite a few hours of good old mindless RPG baddie slaughter. Overall, I'd give this game a 6.5/10; solid gameplay, proper controller support, and local multiplayer often outshine the game's general lack of ambition.

I'm five hours in this game and I have to say:
I must be an alien from another planet to differ from the overall opinion about R.A.W. - It might be a guilty pleasure, but I like it. The game is simple, you aren't doing much more than slashing through waves over waves of enemies and take their mostly not so spectacular loot.
I wouldn't say it's too repetetive judged by the level design, which has quite the variety from each area. There's sand levels, ice levels, fairy forests, dark jungles, castles and a weird meta ghost world. And that's not even all. Enemy types could be more diverse, but at least there IS change to it - plus smaller and bigger bosses.
You have three classes, I'm playing as warrior - and the levelable skills are satisfactory in my eyes. You can choose to be more defensive or more of a battle type.

I don't about the story, but from what I understand it's okay to have a reason for all the monsters and quests.

The game is very linear, don't expect any open world / sandbox feeling.

If you search for a pure action RPG with lots of monster killing and dig a nice graphic style, then you might wanna try this out. You liked Greed: Black Border? Then definitely try this out. You want a lot of open world feel, a great variety of quests, a lot of voiced over dialogue? Then you might wanna skip this.

Oh: You should play this with an Xbox 360 controller, if you have one. It plays GREAT with it ;)

A run of the mill, bog-standard action rpg. 3 possible classes, 26 totally boring levels, bland and uninspiring skills, and combat that most of the time boils down to mashing the basic attack skill. Story-wise nothing spectacular either, and side quests (if any) are limited to simple "go kill" or "go fetch."

Avoid unless you somehow have absolutely nothing else to play.

R.A.W. is a hack’n’slash RPG where you choose from the standard characters of warrior, dark sorcerer, or rogue. The four kings met in the North to fight back an ancient evil which is trying to come back. Only three made it out beaten and worn and the North King was frozen in crystal. This is where you come in and find the North King and he speaks to you telepathically asking for your help. He melds with your body and sets you on a task to open the four portals of north, south, east, and west lands.

Playing the game isn’t bad it’s just not great. There isn’t much variety in enemies as you’ll fight mostly the same ones over and over which will become monotonous over time. Your weapons and armor don’t really make much of a difference in what you use. Basically you find a better one and it gives you a higher damage or defense. You can also have elemental damage of fire or poison to your weapons but those didn’t seem to add anything noticeable. Skills get added each level but none of them were that great or make me excited to level them up or unlock them.

The story is pretty weak and didn’t really hold me or make me want to pay attention much. You’ll fight through the same levels or what seems like the same levels many times. Make it halfway through the game and then go back and do it all over again. Not too exciting if you ask me.

Overall R.A.W. is a mediocre game which wasn’t bad to play but not worth playing more than once. Co-op may add a little fun to it but since I played it already by myself I don’t see the real reason to play it again unless you want all the achievements.

Bear Rating: 6/10

I think a lot of people are unfair when they review this game, mostly because they review it thinking of it like a Diablo clone. In all honesty, R.A.W. is more of a Gauntlet clone, but with some more RPG elements thrown in.

The game is mostly a slogfest. Kill enemies, maybe do a random quest, reach the next area. Most likely get one experience level on the way (there is an experience cap per area and once that has been reached you barely get any experience).

Is this a problem? Not really. Sure, the game might feel sluggish at times, but overall it actually keeps on going pretty well. And except for the beginning when I didn't use the compass enough I never really got stuck anywhere. (Oh, and there's no map in the game, only a compass which shows the general direction you're supposed to go.)

Overall: Not a bad game. Not the best game in the genre, definitely not the worst. Just don't go in hoping to get a Diablo game, then you'll be disappointed.

The best feature of R.A.W. is the full controller support, the rest is a lackluster ARPG that suffers from extreme mediocrity. It is so dull: boring characters, boring skills and monsters to fight, dumb story. Even worse: the actual fighting doesn't feel good since it is stuck between Diablo-style combat and proper arcade hack'n'slay (meaning you only ever target a single enemy unless you use some aoe-skill).

R.A.W. is pretty much a waste of time, plenty of alternatives on Steam that do the combat or the ARPG looting and leveling much better.

An ok game.
Fun but nothing special.
They really overdid it with the spiders on every level.
Also no map was annoying.
Having said that I kept playing to the end so can't be bad.
A nice little dungeon bash if you can grab it in a steam sale as I did then a bargain :)
