The Raven est un excellent jeu d'enquête, porté par une histoire très bien écrite et une bonne bande son. Malgré quelques défauts, il reste savoureux du début jusqu'à la fin !

Attention, le jeu de base n'a pas de sous-titres en français ! Pour ce faire suivez la procédure sur Smash-15195. Cela aidera les non-anglophones.

[ R. COMME RAVEN ]
The Raven - Le Corbeau - est un voleur très réputé qui a fait de nombreux casse jusqu'en 1960. Quatre an plus tard il revient sur le devant de la scène avec le vol de l'un des célèbres "Yeux du Sphinx". L'Inspecteur Legrand voue sa vie à la poursuite du Corbeau et pas de bol c'est vous, l'officier suisse Anton Jakob Zellner qui allez vous retrouvé impliqué dans sa poursuite. Durant l'histoire, vous serez entouré d'une Baronne style Castafiore et son majordome, d'un docteur allemand louche, d'une belle et jeune américaine, d'un archéologue, d'une mère et de son fils et enfin d'une célèbre écrivaine dont vous êtes fan, le tout dans un long voyage de la suisse jusqu’à une exposition au Caire. Voici les bases d'un excellent roman.

[ ZELLNER AVEC UN Z. ]
Le jeu se présente comme un point&click. Un inventaire avec les objets, une scène avec des zones interactives, et plusieurs tableaux. Les particularités de The Raven sont un compteur de score en haut à droite qui augmente en trouvant des indices et qui descend si vous l'utiliser pour vous aider à en dévoiler. La seconde particularité est un carnet où seront consignées toutes vos notes sur l'enquête. Très bien fait, il est vraiment utile et instructif.

Le jeu complet se présente en 3 épisodes qui vous ferons contrôler plusieurs personnages pour vous faire voir l'endroit et l'envers de l'histoire. J'ai trouvé ces passages vraiment intéressants et instructifs. Compter environ 6h pour le premier épisode et 4h pour les deux suivants.

La difficulté est correct. Les énigmes logiques et relativement simple si vous prenez bien le temps de découvrir votre environnement (n'hésitez pas à cliquer plusieurs fois sur un même objet) ou à reparler à chacun des personnages. La solution est forcément là, sous votre nez.

Les tableaux sont très beaux, mais le rendu des personnages est assez moyen et l'animation de ces derniers vraiment chaotiques, ce qui rend parfois les déplacements entre scène irritants. Au delà de cela, le reste est bien rendu.

[ TON AVIS ? ]
J'avoue avoir un avis mitigé sur The Raven. Les sous-titres fan-made aide à la découverte pour une recommandation francophone. A la fin du premier épisode, on hésite car on a une histoire qui à du potentiel; mais des déplacements qui vous ont fait rager. Mais une fois qu'on a fini le jeu, on se dit que ces quelques moments d'agacements c'est rien et qu'on à vécu et suivi un véritable roman d'enquête. C'est pour cela que je le recommande.

Just finished the game and have to give it a good recommendation. The game has a lot of atmosphere for a very good story that is not transparent. I enjoyed the game very much, the graphics were well done and fit the time of the story very well. It's a pretty simple point and click adventure game, although sometimes it can be difficult to figure out how to advance in the game. Some thinking is required. The voice acting was done very well in my opinion and the music through out the game was also very well done. Most of the schievements are pretty easy to get, one is difficult and you may need to find some help to get it done as it is a tricky one to get for most. I have over 20 hours in the game but 3-4 hrs of it were AFK time. It is an enjoyable game without being to stressful so it's fun to just sit down and play it and see what you can figure out and enjoy the story. The only minus I can really give the game is some times the UI can be a bit clunky and getting your character to walk where you want them to can sometime be frustrating but not to the point it wrecks the game. 7/10

Review of The Raven - Legacy of a Master Thief

"An Epic Legendary Thief. A Thrilling Adventure. And a Surprising Ending."

The Raven - Legacy of a Master Chief is one of the best detective games you should really play. The story is profound and unique. The puzzles are not that hard that you won't fallout of the story plot. The ending actually surprised me. I really didn't expect it. The Raven is your usual point and click game but instead of just clicking items and picking them, The Raven focuses more on investigating every detail. It means that you have to examine each item in the game many times until you exhaust all that could be examined.

You start as Anton Jakob Zellner, a Swiss Police officer, assigned to assist and accompany the famous inspector Legrand as you guard and protect the two jewel eyes that are to be exhibited in a museum in Cairo, Egypt. Your role is mostly what detectives (well, police officers) do in every crime scenes, INVESTIGATE and ANALYZE each situation along with the items available at the moment. The game offers some hints but if you want to be a master detective, you don't need to rely on those things. The game is divided into 3 chapters with each can be played independently from one another.

Some Negatives:
The only negative I could find is that the game sometimes have some bugs. Some click point areas are positioned ways off from the actual item and the game has a bit of bugs when you try to move your character through a narrow room. There are also times that your character can get stuck.

The game is quite pricey but I bought mine on a 75% sale and it was totally worth it.

My Personal Rating:
Gameplay: 7.0/10
Story/Plot: 10/10
Graphics: 9/10
Music: 10/10

Overall: 9.0/10

I initially bought this game at full price due to the positive early reviews (which were mostly based on the first chapter).

Unfortunately, the game is severely broken for many users and the developers have done little to fix these issues since the game's release. These are not only minor bugs or annoyances, but critical game breaking issues.

I usually love these types of adventure games, but in this case, I have been unable to progress beyond the first chapter (disregard the deceptive amount of hours on record; I have left the game running in the background on several occasions while running errands, sleeping or looking for solutions to the problems I've encountered). It is unlikely that I will get a refund as I bought the game long before Steam's refund policies were changed. Instead, I want to warn future potential buyers of the problems they may encounter.

Take a look at the forum posts below:

Bug thread (13 pages so far): https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/846959998013346908/

Save games disappearing (this is my biggest issue at the moment, as you can see by my posts to the below threads):

https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/34095131971716840/

Linux/Mac issues (there are too many of these threads to list them all):

https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/540736320066916724/
https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/540732596570915707/

https://steamcommunity.com/app/233370/discussions/0/846959876007904035/

Etc.

More examples can be found on the game's discussion page and I recommend reading through it. These issues have NOT been fixed, despite the game having been out for two years now.

This leaves the game unplayable for many people; whether you are going to be one of these people depends on your luck and on your operating system. Mac and Linux users seem to have the most issues. As the game is listed as being compatible on these operating systems, this is inexcusable.

As for the game itself (or the little I have been able to experience of it), the story is an obvious homage to Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot. The first chapter starts off slow, but quickly builds up suspense once the titular "Raven" makes an appearance. I have heard that the second and third chapters are a bit of a let down compared to the first chapter's conclusion. The puzzles are alright, but nothing memorable comes to mind. They mainly seem to revolve around using the right object in the right location. I didn't encounter any logic puzzles or truly creative solutions. There is some pixel hunting involved, which I found annoying in the initial train sequence (although it is possible to reveal hot spots in the game by using up "points", this locks certain achievements from being accomplished). The animation and movement in the game is frankly awful, but I was able to ignore it for the most part. It does not really compare well to contemporary medium-high budget games, and as such the standard asking price is a tad steep. I would write more about the game itself, but my save games were erased three times in a row and I have given up on making any progress beyond this chapter.

Basically, if you play on Mac or Linux: DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!

If you play on Windows... buy at your own risk. The first chapter seems decent enough; I can't personally comment on the final two chapters, but many reviews online seem to paint them in a rather mediocre light. Even if you do not encounter the technical issues that apply to Mac or Linux users, the game is still rife with random bugs which can impede your progress. I'd wait for a sale, or hope that the developers finally take notice of these issues and release a patch.

Very Hercule Poirot-esc
At least for the first half, where you play like a wannabe Detective.
The second half, you play the same events again, but as the thief.
Full of action, mystery and traditional point-and-click puzzles.
It presents a great story.

An obvious problem, because the inventory pops-up at the bottom of the screen, when you need to go to a area that is achievable by going to the bottom of the screen you have to click in a specific place on the bottom of the screen.
There are also several graphical glitches and game breaking bugs, so save often.
