Is somebody trying to follow in the Raven's footsteps? – Legrand is back on the case. At the same time in Zurich a phone rings. Constable Anton Jakob Zellner looks up from behind a mountain of files. He has no idea what lies hidden in a bank vault, just a few hundred meters away from him. As he reaches for the receiver his life takes a crucial turn…

All three chapters are now available:
  • Chapter I: The Eye of the Sphinx

Was enjoying the game, played all the way up to Chapter 3 and now I'm in an "escape the room" situation and no matter what I do the character just walks in circles or in place infinitely when trying to walk across the room to the thing i need to use. The pathfinding is completely broken in Chapter 3, and usually it just walks into a wall for a minute before teleporting to the destination, but at this part it never gives up and teleports you. And every time it happens, you become unable to open the pause menu, so the game needs to be force-closed. This happened 10 times in a row.

It's a shame, because I'd been more or less enjoying the first two chapters, and now I'll probably never finish the game.

I'm not really an avid gamer, but I'm big on mystery games and have played most of the good ones. The Raven is pretty good, but definitely at times the gameplay is clunky and it's difficult to figure out what the hell to do. There are a couple technical glitches here and there, but the overall storytelling is enticing and the way it unfolds is unique. I'd recommend it, but it wouldn't satisfy an avid fan of Agatha Christie or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (I know there are bits of the game meant to reference Christie, but I felt that they weren't followed through enough.) Overall, a decent game with decent graphics and a lovely story.

Too expensive?

This was a free game for a gaming magazine a few months ago. But not paying for a game doesn't mean playing said game is free. You invest more than 10 hours of your life into this. Which means that if the game is not good enough, even "free" can be expensive. Was it this time? Let's find out.

Wo bist du?

You play the role of a Swiss policeman in the hope that your final act before retirement would be to catch The Raven. The burglar who was responsible for stealing expensive jewelries earlier. So you find yourself in a point and click adventure game walking around and clicking on things. Later you also get control of other characters to be able to see the full picture and get to the end of the riddle.

We are the player

Was it a good idea? Is it a good mechanics to reveal the picture by controlling multiple characters? From the immersion perspective, it isn't. I felt disconnected when I first realized that from now on I get to control someone else. However, from the story perspective, it is a good decision. Seems to be the most logical choice of storytelling once you know the whole picture. Which you don't until the last scene.

Walk Like an Egyptian

So what do we have here?

We have a great music in this game, also we have a nice story and a great storytelling. And while I did not really like how the characters look like, I do like how the environment looks like. Not the most impressive looking thing ever, but still decent and it has its own charm.

Then why did I put a "not recommended" seal to this game, you might ask. Unfortunately because of every other aspect of the game:

  • You make no decisions at all and what you do in one chapter of the game doesn't affect the happenings in the other chapters at all. You can't even play the game continously. Once you finished Chapter 1, the credits roll then you simply click "New Game" and you select Chapter 2 from there.
  • You can save. But don't be fooled. The save feature doesn't really saves your current progress instead it saves from an arbitrary checkpoint. And that checkpoint might had happened to be just a moment before your save or 15 minutes earlier. You never know until you reload your save and you realise you have no idea which point of the game you are at. And you also have to redo a lot of things.
  • I found most riddles dumb. At a point you have a mirror. You want to look around somewhere using that mirror. So you take a radio antenna and stick the mirror to the radio antenna by using a candy you chewed to make it stick. I'm serious. And it holds for like 30 minutes or more. And there are more of these.
  • The movement around is horrible and makes your head ache. You are lucky if the character you control goes where you clicked. Otherwise they love teleporting, moonwalking, ice skating on the floor without having ice or a pair of skates, or just standing in one place and doing full rotations like a radar.
  • The animations are poorly done and the faces look like made of plasticine. If you wish to avoid nightmares, just follow this sanity-saving tip: whenever you think Mrs. Miller is going to smile, close your eyes.

TL;DR

Great story with nice music. But for full price it doesn't worth the pain trying to get the characters go where you want them to go. Because they won't. I'm not entirely sure that even playing it for free worth it. Can't honestly tell you any scenario where you should be buying this game for real-life money. And that's really sad because the Poirot-mood is nicely catched.

Gameplay is painfully slow.

You would have to be very patient and very bored to play this game.

A lot of time and effort goes into opening locked doors/drawers/boxes rather than on real detective work.

There is a lot of sitting and waiting while staring at a black black screen as your uncharming protagonist moves between rooms (or from one half of a railway carriage to the other), and everything is done in an annoyingly roundabout way and without real humour.

There is nothing appealing about any of the characters.

A potentially great story and some lovely cinematic ideas havw been completely ruined here.

An easily pleased ten year old with low expectations might enjoy this game.

I just finished playing this game and, though short, I had a magnificent time. If you enjoy Agatha Christie murder mysteries (and those like them), you will love playing this game.

Just a warning: it can be a bit fussy and fiddly at times--changing camera views and other things may not cork correctly the first time. But if you're patient and simply walk away and try again, most issues with this game will work themselves out.

Despite these minor flaws, I again recommend this game.

Well, I can't say that the game is horrible because it's not although it's not great either. What IS horrible are the game mechanics, you will constantly find yourself angry at your character for walking one way then the camera changes and you will turn around and walk the opposite way of where you were going (makes sense if you play it). When it comes to the story itself, it's not great but it's enough to keep you playing the game. all in all i'd say only get this if it is under $5, I got it for i believe it was $2 so i'm not upset. 5/10

It's a great who dunnit. If you enjoy Agatha Christie movies/novels, and Murder She Wrote TV series you will love this game. I don't see much replay value in it, but that's how most detective games are since once you know you don't really get excited as when you already played it. It's well worth the money, and I enjoyed it.

I'm a huge Agatha Christie fan and I love tributes but this felt more like a bad rip off than a tribute. It's a mix of a bit o' dis book a bit o' dat novel, they didn't really make an original story.
I thought the finale was cute, but after an unbearable amount of bugs, movement impairments and slooooooooooow walks I rushed to the end and was so relieved to get to it, I didn't enjoy it properly.
The game isn't difficult at all, you can't go wrong: there's such a small amount of objects in such little space and almost no puzzles that it almost feels like a movie (one that you could swear you've already watched), more than a game.

Oh my, is this game cheesy.

If you like Agatha Christie books/stories, familiar mystery tropes, and goofy, blumbering protagonists with a good heart, then you'll like this game.

If you hate the fact that the game is terrible at changing camera angles/placement to put you into a different area, forcing you to fight with the Constable to get him to stop staring out the damn train window (or walk in circles), and just simply walk down the hallway into the next train car, then, well, you'll get a good laugh and be inevitably ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off at the same time, yet still enjoy the overall experience.

There's really only one type of person who will appreciate this game.

Pros:
+ Good story with the 'legendary' Raven figure and the police man who's been hunting him for ages
+ The characters are likeable and the voice acting is superb
+ The gameplay is mostly fun and well done
+ The score is fantastic and occasionally I actually just sat there listening to it, it was that good

Cons:
- It's glitchy. The animations don't alway work out, characters walk on the spot, randomly materialise at the other end of the room, etc.
- The walking is sometimes a major pain. I have spent several minutes trying to enter or leave the room and it's a nightmare. At one point, I may have cried.
- The story starts strong in the first chapter and drops after that very quickly. Literally NO ONE cares to see the same exact events from 3 different angles. Major minus point.

Overall, I really liked it. Anyone who's into detective games like me should give this a try, but I got it on sale for like 5 bucks or something and I wouldn't pay the full price for it any day. It's too glitchy and only halfway enjoyable for that. As for the plot...

MILD SPOILERS MAYBE

I figured out who the Raven was about... 5-10 minutes into the game during a very specific conversation that made me instantly suspicious. The game sends you on a wild goosechase with faints and double-faints and does its best to throw you off, but to the bitter end I was convinced (and actually disappointed with the presented alternative solution) and I was right. It might be a bit annoying to constantly go "oh it's that guy- nope, nevermind. Perhaps this one- no." as it comes off as lazy. Good concept, good characters, decent game, but seriously don't pay full price, it's never worth that much.

A great first chapter followed by two that lack the detail and richness of the start of the game. By the end of the third chapter I found myself a little disengaged, however the ending is worth reaching :)

I particularly liked that there were parts of the game that did not have to be fully completed to progress. Side quests if you will. Unusual in story driven point and click adventure games like this!

"The Raven: Legacy of A Master Thief", a point-and-click adventure game with a great story. The story is the best part of the game. Taking a page from the "Arsene Lupin" short stories, the game's main antagonist is 'The Raven', a mysterious gentleman thief. You play as Constable Zellner, a veteran Swedish police officer whom gets caught up in a grand adventure/mystery while escorting some very valuable cargo. I won't go any further as to avoid spoilers, but if you play this game for one reason it should be the story. Also, allow me to mention the soundtrack. I found it to be very charming and found myself humming the main theme far after I turned of the game.

The drawbacks to the game a few but glaring. The first being the camera angles, transtioning from one part of a room to another, that is not on screen, is frustrating. The second being the audio/video sync for the character models. Weather you play the game on it's lowest or highest setting the sound does not always sync properly and it takes you away from the immersion. Last, and certainly least, is the overall stiffness that the game has. I know it's a point and click game but the animations are just so lifeless and boring. If they patched these issues in an update I know it would be appreciated.

"The Raven: Legacy of A Master Thief" a game worth playing. My final thought is that this game is a good introduction to point-and-clicks and you should give it a try.

Short version: 91%
If Agatha Christie would have written a heist thriller, it would have probably been a lot like The Raven: an interesting whodunit wrapped in an exciting jewel thievery, all presented as a three-part, solid point ‘n’ click adventure game with a clear, comfortable interface.

Long version:
Playing through The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief is like sitting down to watch ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ (the ’74 one), which miraculously transforms into ‘The Italian Job’ (again, the original).

The story even starts on the Orient Express, where we meet our first protagonist, Constable Zellner, an obvious Poirot homage (we even meet this world’s Agatha Christie). He eventually manages to get mixed up in an investigation against the Raven: master thief who plans to steal two Egyptian jewels.
From this point on, we are treated to both a classic English style whodunit murder mystery on-board a cruise ship (a smaller homage to ‘Death on the Nile’), and a heist thriller where many people are not who they seem, and several well-crafted plans are at work at the same time, directly opposing each other. This is also the point where the story introduces the other protagonists, a young burglar couple.
Not only the plot is great, but the characters as well. All of them have detailed, often tragic backstories, just like the best Christie novels. And they are played by talented English actors.

Since the story tries to imitate Ms. Christie’s work, the puzzles are also straightforward and realistic, aided by a simple interface. Don’t expect an easy game though, because progress usually requires carefully examining every possibility before the game lets the player choose the correct one. The characters cannot run and many tasks are divided into dozens of small steps, yet the pacing is so good that the game never feels boring, and the 12-15 hours of play time just flies by pretty fast.

I enjoyed this game very much, but the controls are a bit clunky at times. Sometimes the game didn't transition to the next screen when it should and I had to walk back and forth several times before it would move on. It's an absolutely wonderful story, I've found myself humming the theme song on several occasions and the artwork and voice acting are good, definitely weaker than the music and story, but not something that ever bothered me while playing.

Story: 9/10

As a huge fan of Agatha Christie and of classic point'n clicks I just had to get this game and I loved it!

There are some minor animation issues but those are forgettable and don't taint the pleasure.
The Raven provides a clever and compelling story full of allusions to Dame Agatha Christie and some of her most noted works. In three chapters set in very well chosen locations the game entertains not only with a thrilling plot but also with several interesting and coherent characters, fine graphics and excellent voice acting and soundtrack.

I'd recommand The Raven to all fans of classic point'n click and vintage murder mysteries.

Pros:
+ engagind story
+ nice graphics
+ some good music
+ decent voice acting
+ action elements that give an illusion of a fast-paced movie

Cons:
- linear
- got me stuck once or twice expecting somewhat crazy solution
- repetitive music

The game is rather rational and logical but can get you stuck now and then with a puzzle that doesn't necessary fit into the rest of the gameplay. It's a nice, Agatha Christie style story of a thief and a capturer where player plays both sides and gains both perspectives. I can tell I enjoyed it a lot, there were, however, some aspects typical for most of the point & click genre that can throw off a casual player. I'd give it 8 out of 10 points if it wasn't that damn long - you can feel the story was stretched in a very artificial manner to split it into several episodes; could easily be squished in one. Overall: 6/10.

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 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.

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.

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

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.

Not worth your time or money.

I really enjoy point and click games, but this game is really boring, slow paced and nothing left for your own imagination. You are a detective who has to solve the riddle about the masterthief 'The Raven' which has stolen a jewl that is suppose to be shown first time in a Egyptian museum.

A long the way you learn a lot about different characters; their porblems, dreams and what they do in general. I thought this was important at first, since I followed every little detail about everyone in case it would be important to ultimately resolve who was the master thief, but no ... The criminal are shown to you near the end, so no guessing and no need to go through the evidence.
The game also makes each object you pick so obvious of where to use it. If you pick up a toothpick he's actually saying where to use it, "I can use it to open the lock to ...", thus leaves nothing to the imagination.
Do not make me start on the animation. You want your character to walk a direction, but first he has to make a 360 degree turn and take like 5-10 steps on the spot before he manage to walk forwards.

This is truly a point and click game, and nothing more. With a lot of bugs that seems not to be fixed, and may ruin your game experience.

The Raven is a well-presented adventure game with endearing characters, intriguing and enticing story arcs. I found myself exploring every bit of dialogue just to learn more about them, without regard to progression of the story. This game does suffer from sometimes awkward character movement and pathnoding, as well as stilted facial animation, but this is easy to get past and doesn't present much of a problem.

Fans of adventure games should definitely purchase this game.

A solid adventure mystery. Story and soundtrack are top-notch. Also contains what is possibly the best lock-picking puzzle I've ever seen.

Game is brought down by a few standard adventure game issues. Some required hotspots are really small or not unlocked until the story allows it or, annoyingly, both. And a handful of scenes have terrible walking triggers, making exiting really frustrating. I frequently had to walk backwards a bit to go foward.

There were also a few standard adventure game graphics issues; characters sliding, popping, and the like.

But really, those are minor quibbles. The story should be why you're playing this and the story is well worth it.

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
