The Raven is one of the more enjoyable P&C adventures I've played in the past few years. And probably the best P&C mystery/detective adventure I've ever played. I really enjoyed Testament of Sherlock Holmes as well, but this was better done, in my opinion.

Many, many video games seem to be built by developers, programmers and artists, and then have a story sort of try and glue the pieces together loosely for an enjoyable experience. There is nothing wrong with that. There are a ton of really fun games out there with this formula.

In the case of The Raven, it felt like a team of writers (or maybe just one, I dunno) put together a fine story, and then built a game to wrap around it. For me, this was a departure from the typical game formula and a breath of fresh air. BUT, it won't be for everyone.

You get to play three different characters in the game (two male, one female) as you both try to unravel a mystery, and become a deeper part of it at the same time.

The game play is fairly typical P&C, with a few treats in regard to "repeat performances" at very specific "crossroads" in the game (I won't spoil it).

The game isn't without flaws. There are inconsitent commands when it comes to character movement, occasionally sloppy pixel area matching (when your mouse cursor can either click on an object well outside the object, or not at all). Audio sometimes cuts out, and the cutscenes occasionally get wonky. The game crashed on me a handful of times in the 14 hours I spent playing it. It has some warts when it comes to gameplay mechanics and execution.

But all that being said, it was STILL a joy to play. The character development is among some of the best I've ever experienced in decades of gaming. Dialogue that seems nebulous at times ties in wonderfully by the end of the game. In fact, SO good, that you'll even chuckle at the end at encounters that occurred earlier in the game when you realize the full context of the conversation later.

There is subtle and mature humor in just the right places when you've had enough serious dialogue. There are extremely mature subjects that are covered, and conversations that really pull you in if you've lived for longer than a few decades on this planet. And when I say "mature" I don't mean an ESRB version of it. There's not much in the way of sophomoric language or gratuitious violence. But there are very adult themes that many of us become sadly familiar with (or can laugh about) when we get older. And some we'll never laugh about.

The bottom line is that this is a true adult mystery with several wonderful twists, a killer storyline, some fun (but typical) P&C mechanics, and some fun and mostly logical puzzles.

If you enjoy a strong story in your games (or at all), or enjoy mysteries, or generally enjoy P&C adventures, I can recommend this. If you enjoy all three, then I think this title is a "can't miss" and even a bit underrated.

I am new to point and click adventure games, having missed their heyday, I had never really considered them something that would be interesting. This game has proven my assumption wrong. The Raven presents a very interesting story and provided many twists and turns along the way. I admit, I do have a bit of a penchant for crime/detective stories.

One critical comment I must make is that the controls can sometimes be a bit clumsy, sometimes requiring one to walk towards a "door" and then back away a bit or even occasionally take a second pass at it. This might just be a side effect of my own lack of experience with this style of gameplay, however.

I will be watching the developers, KING Art, for new additions to their catalog.

Besides some minor animation and sound mishaps it's generally an enjoyable adventure title. The story kept me interested, it had an interesting mid-game twist (avoid watching trailers if you want to avoid spoilers) and for change the puzzles were logical and realistic. I feel that the second part might have been a bit rushed as the story did not pan out as long as the first part, but that did not make the story less enjoyable. Thank you for keeping this genre alive.
Keep them coming!

7.9/10

+ traditional point and click adventure game in 3d person with good presentation
+ logical puzzles, mostly inventory based and through conversations
+ intriguing story with a twist, investigating the case of a master thief (resembles agatha christies novels)
+ good production values, good voice acting (although i found the main character's voice a bit irritating :)
+ reasonable duration (it took me 10 hours without skipping cutscenes)

- easy puzzles overall, some long and unnecessary dialogues
- a few bugs, especially at the 3rd chapter, animations that stuck , had to terminate program from task manager and restart
- score system, that doesn't really matters (sierra did it so much better so many years ago!)

As a fan of adventure games, this game looked very intriguing. The story has a nice build-up with classic British mystery elements, however it all falls flat in the final chapter with a very anti-climatic conclusion. It felt like a cop-out to go that route. Other videogames have done this and it just does not sit well with me. It ruined the otherwise decent experience. As far as puzzles go it has some nice moments. Some frustration when you can't find an item you need to progress, but that's just part of the genre. The characters have nice personalities and voice-work. The game does control very clunkily, sometimes it's confusing to find out where to click to change screens etc.

Overall it's a decent adventure game, but since this is a mystery game I had high hopes for the story. Unfortunately, this disappointed me so much that it left a bad taste in my mouth and leads to my negative recommendation.

For a point-and-click adventure game, the main character is endearing, the overal scenery graphics are movie quality (there are weird glitches with the character though), and while it was fairly predictable, it was still good old fashioned fun! The music really fit this game as a time piece, and the dialog was well put together, if not a little long in the tooth.

I gave the entire 3 part series of the Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief a 4.25/5.0
