Ravensword: Shadowlands is a very dumbed down Skyrim clone. It has it's moments of fun and you get to fly cool mounts eventually, but it has a lot of problems. I still want to play it, but will need to remember to SAVE OFTEN!!! You die a lot and get stuck in the environments.
Graphics are a mess in some places and it really takes away from the atmosphere. Trees, rocks and plants will be floating in the air, tears in the buildings, popup everywhere, etc. Some textures just don't seem finished. Music, sound effects and voice acting are all done well. There are some cool enemies to fight. I love the skeletons! Character models and animations are okay.
I give this game a 5/10 because of the cheap price and it can be fun to play! ONLY purchase if you are the kind of player that is very forgiving of glaring flaws and can still have fun with mediocre games. This was one of those rare games that I played from start to finish without any breaks! I liked it!
