Все бы ничего, игра то реально хороша, но русский перевод полон ошибок, как форум школоты.

Сюжет в игре, увы, слабоват - вычислить кто есть кто, увы, невозможно, а субтитры к концовке и вовсе не переведены! Но всё это бы еще ничего, если бы не ужаснейший геймплей. Ворон - типичный квест лишенный всякой логики - взаимодействие с объектами зависит от того с кем вы общались! Например, вы можете бесконечно долго и совершенно безуспешно дергать ручку закрытой двери, но стоит поговорить с маленьким мальчиком в другой локации и узнать от него, что нужно всего-то дернуть дверь за ручку, как после этого закрытая дверь сразу же откроется... В общем, кому нравится подобная ерунда, тому мой отзыв ни к чему. Остальным советую купить за эквивалентную сумму денег другую игру - The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. В ней предстоит провести самое настоящее самостоятельное расследование, а геймплей там на порядок лучше, интереснее и главное - логичнее.

Лысый усатенький старичок все-таки в деле

Большая любительница различных пойнтэндкликов, the Raven в целом пришлась мне по душе. Сначала я думала, что там будет много отсылок к Эдгару По, но увы. Сюжет игры повествует о воре мирового класса, который был якобы убит инспектором Леграном. Терзаемый сомнениями о личности своей жертвы, он находит подтверждение своим опасениям: происходит значимая кража (Ворон возвращается, ага) одного из двух драгоценных камушков, которую инспектор берется расследовать, попутно охраняя второе сокровище при его перевозке. Играем мы отнюдь не за этого человека (иначе все было бы совсем очевидно), а за маленького забавненького констебля, который яро пытается навязаться Леграну в помощники по расследованию.
Диалоги поначалу убеждали в том, что the Raven относится к играм с пометкой 6+, однако с каждой главой все усложнялись, а сюжет запутывался. Порадовал тот факт, что кажущиеся концовками сцены оказывались маленькими ловушечками, оставляющими интригу до самого конца.
К сожалению, минусов у игры много. Взять хотя бы дикую забагованность, из-за которой советую сохраняться каждые 5 минут, иначе персонаж может запутаться на ровном месте и даже не дать по-нормальному перезагрузить игру. Мало локаций для такого рода игр. Создалось впечатление, что разработчикам было просто лениво придумывать что-то новое. Атмосфера 60-х годов не ощущается. Мало артов. ВНИМАНИЕ: русский не выбирайте категорически. Локализация ужасна донельзя, гугл транслейт справился бы с ней даже лучше.
В целом, для игры, которую поначалу хочется назвать типичной в своем жанре, the Raven показали неплохой результат.
6,5/10.

The Raven меня очень сильно разочаровал. Это самый худший из всех квестов, в которые я играла.
Сюжет не интригует, а концовка так ничего и не объясняет. Куча бесполезных и не интересных диалогов и видеовставок. Задачки слишком простые, поэтому, если у вас нет лишней хромосомы, игра пройдется за один день.
Весь геймплей сводится к "тыканью" на всё подряд. Ужасно раздражает, что взаимодействие с определенными предметами возможно только после общения с каким-нибудь персонажем.
Перевод на русский по всей видимости делали в google translate, а финальный видеоролик вообще с немецкими субтитрами.
Скучно, не интересно, уныло.

Чудесная история. Игра - скорее новелла с активным участием, чем классический квест. Немного удручает, что местами скатываешься на пиксел-хантинг. В целом игра местаи заставила меня понервничать и пожалеть о покупке, но в конечном итоге хорошие эмоции от игры пересиливают.
Музыка, графика, очаровательные персонажи и хэппи энд. В целом - рекомендую для семейного прохождения :)

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.

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.

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.

I had a lot of fun playing this game, I've played a good handful of detective-style games and this one was one of the most entertaining, of course the gameplay is slow like all detective games, but its not so slow and boring that it becomes uninteresting. I'd love to see even more in-depth detective games.

All 3 episodes were fun to play. The characters were pretty good and their presence in the game believeable. The graphics were decent for this style of game. The only downside I would give was that it was sometimes difficult to find exactly where to click to get a chcracter to leave the scene and go to the next screen on.
But all in all this was a good effort by King Art's and for those that have never played the game I would recommend it. If I was going to give this a rating out of 10. If I was comparing this to a triple A title then of course it would score low but if I compare it to other games I have played that are similar to this one then I would give this a solid 7 out of 10

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.

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.

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!!

Great for all ages, and a very positive atmosphere throughout the game. Some parts dragged on a little bit and the dialogue was interesting to listen to 80% of the time. The game reminded me of a family-friendly movie sort of similar to The Mummy. There was less action than I thought there would be, but as far as point-and-clicks go this was an enjoyable experience that even threw in some random educational facts here and there.

7/10

I really loved it! This became one of my favorite game.

The story itself isn't that heavy and could enjoy it without feeling depressed, (but put smile on my face.)
Some of the puzzles are little complicated but I had a fun trying out several methods.

I do so wish they will make this "The Raven"a series!

This is a lovely, traditional point and click made as a homage to Agatha Christie, and the references are delightful for fans. The graphics are good, the voice acting good and the music absolute perfection.

This isn't a hard game, but you can skip entire side plots by rushing. I both like and dislike that, and in the end I reloaded from an earlier save to experience that part of the game. So be aware, and listen carefully to what characters tell you. It isn't however important, but sad to miss parts due to scene triggers.

I would recommend this game as a solid title without convoluted puzzles and with steady story progression - all aboard the Orient Express!

This was an excellent adventure game, though I can't say I'm surprised considering that this is the studio that brought the world The Book of Unwritten Tales, which I consider to be one of the best adventure games of the last 10 years at least. The puzzles are well thought out and make sense, while the story is very engaging, with believable characters and a plot that is told (and played out) from two totally different perspectives, which makes it highly entertaining.

Any adventure fan must play The Raven!
