It's not the best game ever and towards the end you become inevitably overpowered.
That being said, it's really fun if you play with a friend (couch coop). Definitely worth its sale price. You will get many hours of enjoyment out of it, although you probably won't be playing it more than once.

Not bad so far - good battles. Sometimes the auto target is off.

Game doesn't work.

Computer #1 (desktop, Win7x64, Radeon 7970): crashes at load menu
Computer #2 (laptop, Win8x64, Geforce GT640M): won't detect controller or allow co-op play.

Not much point in buying a game you can't play, so avoid it.

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 really like this game. Awesome artwork, music and gameplay. For me (I speak only for me) its feels more Diablo than Diablo3 itself. I just tried yet but i know i will play this game a lot.

I tried to like this game, because it is beautiful, but it was really buggy and somehow without drive and enjoyment.

Literally all you do is click
If you want the mind numbingly simplest form Diablo/Torchlight game ever made, feel free to play this

Not a bad game at all hugely underrated. It may feel unfinished and run-of-the-mill, but overall it plays smoothly, the combat is rewarding and I particularly liked the setting and music.

Started the game, followed the first quest, got swarmed by over 30 creatures, got told to reach a portal, creatures won't let me move, died. Before that I clicked on enemies that don't hihglight or show their names, so it's pretty much guessing if you actually target an enemy or just the ground. The presentation is really lackluster as well. It's brown and really not pretty. There's just not much to this game that other games do way better. It might be worth a look if you're really desperate and have nothing else to play, but I highly recommend you have another look at your library before you play this title.

When I launched the game, my friend told me "game is bad, sorry". He even went as far as to say the game was "passable". About as passable as a ♥♥♥♥ that would rip your ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ asunder. Please dont play this game.

I believe I got this game as part of a bundle at one point and never played it. Recently I was going through my games to see what I haven't played yet and I couldn't remember why I decided against downloading this game. So I gave it a shot...and then remembered why I hadn't wanted to play.

The gameplay video on the page shows the player fighting off hordes of enemies. Just mob after mob, and that's pretty much all the gameplay it shows because that's all you're going to be doing. I know hack-and-slash games are really popular but I've been fairly indifferent towards them; I don't hate them but they're not my first choice for a game play experience. I've played Diabolo II and enjoyed it for a few weeks before the repetitiveness got to me. I couldn't even spend an hour playing R.A.W. before I had to give up and just delete it from my computer.

Not only is it pretty much just you fighting horde after horde of creatures, it's really buggy at the same time. You can click and click while making no progress and I found myself getting stuck in the middle of a large group and unable to move or fight so I ended up dying. And this is at the beginning of the game! There's nothing engaging or original about the story and the combat is more frustrating than anything. It's an exercise in futility and I am really glad that I didn't really buy the bundle for this game.
