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 points positioned ways off from the actual item and the game has a bit of bugs when you try to move your 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

character movement drives me Crazy in the first act. there are also many bugs that makes me have to restart the whole game a start over if i dont save every 10 minutes, Come On, we dont pay 25 dollars for a game like this

i know you have relsed the game but its kinda broken, and no follow ups or any sort of patch to fix the known bugs, its been posted all over steam boards and the internet forums

Excellent adventure game. A few areas are challenged by items that are hard to see (and therefore hard to discover) and a few times, you have the inevitable "oh, really, I was supposed to figure THAT out?" series of interactions, but overall a great game with a spectacular story. Execution is good to "above average" with two serious bugs encountered, but otherwise a smooth experience.

If you like Point n Click Adventures then i would definitly recommend this. The environment and characters may be a bit childish, but nevertheless the game has some great aspects and decent graphics. The soundtrack and the atmosphere it creates are just phenomenal. It somehow took me back to my childhood made it feel like a crimestory with a strong touch of a Disney fairytale. As cons id like to mention a few bugs (rare but unpleasant) and although i liked the story, maybe it could have been a bit longer (my actual gaming hours are like 20h). The riddles are pretty fluent and easy but you should expect that just by looking at the game design. But in the end i have to say GOOD JOB!! I WANT MORE!!

I wasn't expecting much from this game when I bought it but I can now say that it's become one of my favourite graphic adventures.

It's hard to find games with plots that don't take you for an idiot these days, and in that way The Raven took a risk. The plot is in no way complicated but it is above what we usually see in videogames. The characters are all likeable and the strings it pulls are darker than I expected for a mystery story with a thief main antagonist.

The weakest point of the game is the gameplay, which doesn't bring anything new to the genre and is buggy at times. It is hard to navigate comfortably through the environment, and I had to use a guide after being stuck for a while only to discover that I had encountered a bug instead of a puzzle.

Sadly, the character animation and modelling isn't as good as it could've been, and detracts a lot from the enjoyment of the game. It does it's job but better art direction and animation could have easily turned this into a masterpiece, but it still remains an overall excellent game.

Worth every penny.
All doe the game play can sometimes be boring and you are stuck with fixed camera angles despite the 3D environment the story is very complex and manages to surprise you every time you think you know what's going on.

Um point and click episódico com 3 eps, alguns bugs na mecânica, o que atrapalha bastante na fluidez do jogo, e sérios problemas com suporte para o controle. Chega de detalhes técnicos, sobre plot, enredo, e desenvolvimento o jogo poderia ter sido bem melhor, a história possuia um potencial para ter sido um mistério bem mais elaborado, também a substituição de personagem na metade do jogo dificulta ao player se afeiçoar pelo novo protagonista, porém isso forneceu uma visão interessante sobre o jogo. Finalizando um jogo com dois primeiros episódios interessantes e, apesar de lentos, divertidos porém com um terceiro episódio de conclusão um pouco previsível e decepcionante com algumas pequenas parte aproveitaveis. Nota 6,10 para apreciadores de point and clicks clássicos e de experiências um pouco diferentes em desenvolvimento de enredo.

The Raven, a classic feeling point and click game that takes you on a journey to find a gentleman thief.

The story is slow in the beginning, but picks up shortly after the first chapter. It will bring you to think deeper about what is going on around you and to think about what every character is doing, and how they are involved. Very sow paced, the movement of characters, the dialogue, the questioning, the stories.

It makes you use logic to figure out both hard and easy puzzles, from opening secret passage ways to attaching a light bulb to wires to light up a room, its a very fun and interesting experience.

The movement I found was slightly annoying on computer. The angles of the camera made it really hard to see different doors and items at some points. Some rooms would even be pitch black, making to scan the whole screen with your map (unless you wanted to use your detective points, reducing your overall chapter score at the end)

Fun twists and characters that you can enjoy, good and bad,

Personal Score 3.5/5

A very solid if somewhat unoriginal point 'n' click adventure that borrows heavily from Agatha Christie's Poirot and has some very nice, detailed backgrounds and character models (though animation is understandably stiff), a nice score and some interesting puzzles. Movement can be a bit sluggish and I really would not recommend playing it with a controller even though it has that option as examining the environment and selecting specific items, which is essential to the game, is extremely cumbersome with one in my view. It works perfectly fine with a mouse as you'd expect for a game of this type.

This is a really charming, old-school adventure that seems to offers a decent amount of gameplay. It may lack humour but the writing is good in my humble opinion and the voice acting is generally spot on.

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.

Basically a tribute to an Agatha Christie/Hercule Poirot novel. The protagonist looks like Poirot, and there is even an elderly female mystery writer on holiday, on a train that looks a lot like the Orient Express. Good effort, nice visuals, but the puzzles are mostly fillers (use key on lock), slower pace than ideal, terrible navigation, subpar voice acting, and 2 game-breaking bugs I've encountered, the first I could recover from (Dr. & bullet, ch.1), the other I couldn't (wooden pole in museum, ch.2). I'm not even giving Chapter 3 a try even though I bought it. Completely ridiculous.

So very annoying. More thick-headed than the average point-and-click game, with riduculously complicated and obtuse solutions to what would be simple problems in real life. It's good-lookiing, but I'm quitting before I waste any more time on the thing, and regret the purchase. Completely insoluble without a walkthrough, and where's the fun in that?

Great idea, great graphics, great atmosphere. Terrible execution. The gamepad controls are confusing and unusable--they are sloppy, don't consistently allow cycling through all available hotspots, and don't allow access to the inventory. The mouse controls are also inconsistent. Instead of allowing you to click on every hotspot with every inventory item and sometimes saying, "that won't work", they leave you guessing about whether you clicked the right place. This is terrible because there's no way to interrupt a long monologue once it has started, and you can click one pixel off and trigger the same whole discussion again with no way to stop.

Finally, the main character is annoying. I didn't want to be that guy. Many of the choices presented were ones where I didn't want to do any of those things, and you can't abort a conversation early. So, you basically end up reading an annoying novel in slightly random order instead of playing a game where you are in control.

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.

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

This is a classic old-school style point-and-click adventure with some quality graphics, superb voice acting, and a brilliant orchestral soundtrack. It has a strong nostalgic feel of a Poirot / Pink Panther whodunnit.

My one criticism is that the puzzles are pretty simple - sometimes you feel you are just clicking things for the character to reveal the story. However, the atmosphere and superb voice acting will keep you hooked in, and it's worth sticking with it to the end to reveal the true identity of the "The Raven" - the mysterious, shadowy character you chase through the game.

The pace is quite slow - but in a nice gentle way. It's a perfect chillout game for the mature adventure gamer on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

As someone who enjoys good point-and-click games, this was an averagely good one, though it wasn't an awesome one. As someone who's read and loved Agatha Christie, the constant references to her books, character and herself are simply adorable.

Things I liked about it:
  • The plot felt like a tribute to Agatha Christie's mystery novels, even in certain apparently far-fetched plot twists. There are also nods to what became the "classic" plot in mystery novels. I loved it when one of the characters said something like "what do you think, we're going to come up with new surprise characters?" or similar. Even the cheesy romance that flourishes in the midst of adversity sounds like a nod to Christie's novels.
  • The music is very nice and goes well with the game.
  • NO PIXEL HUNTING. No extremely absurd combinations of inventory items, like "oh, let me glue cat hair to a baby rattle to make a crossbow".
  • The voice acting is not outstanding, but it's good enough to keep you in the atmosphere.

Things I didn't like about it:
  • There are several bugs. You get stuck walking but not moving, characters disappear in the middle of dialog, you disappear, objects disappear from your inventory, then they magically reappear. Sometimes you just have to restart from a previous save.
  • The graphics looked unfinished. Sometimes I could see the eyeball through the angle of the eyelid, details like that.
  • The movements were very awkward. Sometimes you arrive somewhere and have to examine an item, and for that, the character stops, turns left, stops again, turns a little more, stops again, then you have the animation of the character examining. Then, a pause, then the character's comment about it, then a pause, and then you can continue. It's not too bad, but it gets annoying after a few hours.
  • There aren't enough puzzles, though it's probably fair to say that I don't count as puzzle using a key to open a door, even though sometimes these things can be considered puzzles by others. The very few puzzles are generally too obvious, especially with all the help you get. Sometimes you examine an item, and the character comments something like "Oh, that would be useful to do this or that...".

In general, it's fairly entertaining and I enjoyed it, probably because the continuous references to Agatha Christie kept bringing a silly smile to my face. If I had to grade it, I guess it would be 7/10, though I'm not sure I'd grade it like this if I hadn't been a Christie fan.

A series packaged in (the now common) monthly Chapters has finally reached it's conclusion. Fans of Poiret and Agatha Christie Novel style games should pick this up. Or if you simply enjoy good detective stories done well. I enjoyed the puzzles and the voice acting was strong in places but weak in others. The enviroments repeated themselves often as you played similar events from different points of view but it was done in a way that didn't feel lazy or some rehash. Achievments for perfect scores are broken which annoyed me as I wanted to do a clean hintless run but it takes nothing from the game. Considering this was made during some downtime from The brilliant Book of Written tales you have to give it credit. Over the 3 Chapters you play as various protagonists and antagonists to unravel the mystery of "Who is The Raven?" You get bonus points for paying attention and accuising them in the game so its worth uncovering all the clues. Slow paced but understandibly so.
