Paris, 1960. Europe is in the grip of the gentleman master thief The Raven. His burglaries are spectacular and he always emerges unscathed. Young hotshot investigator Nicolas Legrand stuns the public when he confronts the master thief and fatally wounds him.

London, 1964. An ancient ruby – one of the legendary 'Eyes of the Sphinx' – is stolen from the British Museum. At the crime scene: a raven feather. 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…

Like playing a detective novel. Decent enough story and puzzles that are balanced in difficulty without being too obscure.

The controls occasionally feel clunky, but where The Raven excels is in the portrayal of its characters, its game world and its mystery. 7.5/10

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!)

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
