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.

I want to start off by saying that this game is not great. Being that it's local co-op, this game was absolutely a blast. I'd recommend playing this game with a friend.

R.A.W. is like eating r.a.w. meat
Some parts are tasy and you will want to have more
some other parts are deadly and may result in food poisoning or here, disapointment

a realy solid 5/10 hack and slay i would say

I recommend buying it at your local stores if they have it, it might only cost 5$/5€ there.
Or wait for a discount

The game itself is alright and quite fun to play. It can be best described as a poor man's Diablo. It has a similar feel and playstyle just less characters and is shorter in walkthrough. The quests are straightforward - run from A to B, meet C, he says to kill D and E to get magic items to open the door and stuff like that.

The only two downsides for me personally are:
1. No ingame map. I mean I want to know to which parts I've been to, where the quest mob is and what not.
2. Bugged achievement in the form of Eternal Hero. :(

Overall, it's alright in a sale, and a sorta complete once or thrice (with all characters) and never open again type of game.

This game is nearly pure hack and slash. No worries about having to remember what you read. As the wizard, all I have to remember is to hold shift while I left click at stuff to blow up.

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.

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 ;)

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 :)

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.

R.A.W. is a nice action RPG, but don't expect too much. It certainly doesn't rank in the same league as Diablo or Torchlight do. But it's good in it's own right and I had quite some fun with it. But I most certainly will not grind the "finish the game with all 3 classes" achievement.

Only buy it, while it's on sale.

It's difficult to describe RAW as anything more than a mostly competent Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance knock-off. In comparison though the skill tree and the abilities contained within are quite bland as are the graphics: generic locations with depressingly linear pathways. The loot and equipment are unimpressive as well.

RAW is just completely average and bland. There are so many options available these days that RAW is a pointless and uninventive timesink.

WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?

"R.A.W" is nothing but cheap ripoff of diablo and torchlight together, honestly i can't even say that because of several reasons, both games have at least half linear gameplay, what i mean, you have options to do either side quests and obtain better gear or just stick to main quest or farm for experience and gold, but in "R.A.W" it's totally irrelevant, forget about side quests, there is only one option you have to stick to main quest there is no way back, not to meantion path is so small and tight that sometimes there can run into invisible walls which are blocking from moving. Incredibly idiotic AI, they can get stuck at walls or invisible walls trying to get to shortest paths there is... Game likes to play jokes on players, because you know why not. Best part is, it would make lot of sense if there was health bar on each enemy, if you are damaging it or not, when you came across but instead they rush at you, surround you, that basically means you are dead, just as soon player gets damage it cancels all your attacks / animantions, because you know why not. Sometimes it's impossible to notice when player gets attacked by spiders and what's with the spiders, every new level has spiders in it. Could not they come up with something else besides spiders? Is this some kinda dungeon crawler spider killing simulator? I love some parts of game when there is "HUGE Boss type event" and game just simply spawns huge mobs of enemies either behind you or in front of you, killing them does not help in any way because you have to move "somewhere" and how people can know this when there is no in game map? That adds even more frustration.
Whats with Local coop? Is this game from year 2000?

Dreadful story, plain dumb tips, unresponsive controls, no rebindable keys, redundant UI and skill trees, no in-game map, yeah you know why does player needs map when "R.A.W" is so freaking linear tight game.

"I played games 10 years ago that outdo this in every way"
Having been a fan of the Snowblind engine games on consoles like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and Champions of Norrath, I had some interest in this title as well. Unfortunately, this game has left me massively disappointed.

Story
You are wandering around when you get attacked by some creatures. A voice tells you to head through a portal. You find the voice belongs to one of the 4 realms Kings, who is trapped in crystal and yet still able to communicate. He wants your help to activate 4 gates and stop these creatures at the source.

More stuff happens later, but it doesn't get any better. The story is boring and forgettable. I quickly lost interest in it myself.

Presentation
Graphically, this game is decent. Not great, with the fixed camera, boring locations and constant repeated enemy types, but it isn't horrible. You at least know where you are on the screen, most of the time.

Music and sound effects are poor at best. Fortunately, you won't remember it after you are done with the game.

Controls
The keyboard / mouse controls are just awful. Please, don't even try to play this without a gamepad. Playing with a gamepad has its problems still, but it can be played at least. You are unable to remap anything but the four face buttons, which could result in some irritation since the game doesn't follow the standard controls for similar games that use a gamepad.

Gameplay
Move forward, beat up enemies that spawn out of nowhere within sight of your character, and repeat. The randomly spawning enemies are quite a pain in the ♥♥♥♥, and it doesn't help they don't even spawn out of camera.

Gear is boring, with each piece of equipment for your chosen camera being the same as your previous gears in every way but stats. Speaking of stats, only gear can change those, levelling simply allows you a skill point to power up mostly pointless skills. Each skill doesn't even give you specifics on their enhancements, instead saying stuff like 'Minor damage, Moderate damage and Greater damage', meaning you won't even know how useful a skill is without spending points on it. At least there is an item you can use to have all skill points reset so you can later invest them in better skills.

Wandering around each level can be bothersome as you have not been given a minimap of any sort, just a compass to point you towards your current quest location. Most levels aren't so big that you require it, but its sill an annoying omission.

Lifespan
If you can somehow beat the game even once, you still have the option of beating the game with all three character classes. I pity the people attempting such a goal.

This also has a rather poor co-op mode, with the second player having a character with a scaled level and default equipment, that won't be saved between levels. Beyond getting an achievement by having a second player join in, I doubt anyone will bother with co-op.

Closing
Even ignoring the much better competition that was released years ago, this game is a poor choice for purchase. I would recommend against purchasing this title, your money can and should be spent on much better items.

No matter how you look at, this "old-school" feel simply isn't right when it comes to this game.
Classes and story are too generic, graphics are average, controls are clumsy it really becomes repetitive (but not in a good way like Torchlight, Diablo, Van Helsing etc...).
If you really don't have any other game in this genre, you can this game a try, but you can expect pretty average (forgettable) experience.

Decent graphics and gameplay, but it's more arcade-game than RPG (probably because it's a console port). Recommended only as a bargain-bin buy.

It looks like the devs did not care about anything but the graphics of the game. It has many flaws but it is not a bad game. The levels are mostly linear but the atmosphere is good. I finished the game with all 3 classes. The mage is way overpowered because you can win the game by spamming the fireball spell. It has the longest range, the highest damage, fastest attack rate and also area damage. I found the rogue to be the most challenging and fun to play. It is just mindless action. You can play a couple of levels per session because it becomes tedious. Despite all the flaws I liked it and recommend it.

R.A.W. Realms of Ancient War is a very generic ARPG which offers some average gameplay and a less then interesting story. The game begins with you selecting one of three classes (Warrior, Mage or Rogue), as with most ARPG's each class has a different skill tree made up of around 16 skills some of which have level requirments before you can use them. The story within the game is really only there to push you forward and is presented through text based conversations when meeting important characters. The graphics and effects within this game were overall nice to look at and the art design was actually quite beutiful, however it will really be nothing new for this type of game. In terms of gameplay you are constantly fighting wave after wave of enemies which overall was quite enjoyable however it did get repetative quite quickly as there is not that many different types of enemies on offer within the game, the 'boss' fights if you want to call them that took close around 5 - 10 seconds, with the final two bosses in the game taking around 45 seconds, for me this was a bit pathetic as it did not present much of a challenge at all and required little to no strategy.

Overall I found the experience that is on offer to be okay and taking around 10 hours to complete all 26 levels and side quests the game is on the short side so maybe wait for it to go on sale if you are considering purchasing it. I would recommend this game on the basis that I did enjoy certain areas of it and prior to playing this I had never really played many Hack'n Slash games.
