    The involved narrative of Ravenmark is the icing on this multilayered strategy cake. The campaign story of political intrigue involving several different nations and subtle plays for power is the extra little push that will keep players hopelessly engaged with this game.

    This turn based strategy is not for casual Caesars but a very ambitious project for sophisticated generals. The creative formation system and the challeging campaign will keep you busy for weeks – one turn at a time.

    Ultimately RAVENMARK: Scourge of Estellion is a good turn-based strategy title, albeit one not quite as polished as the games it takes inspiration from; a decent pick up for veteran genre fans.

    Ravenmark: Scourge of Estellion is one of the most comprehensive turn based strategy games for iOS. For the strategy gamer it is a must buy, and it will definitely give you a lot of challenge. For the newcomer to the genre all the information, and options might be overwhelming.

    However closely you choose to follow the ravages of war, in the turn-based strategy genre Ravenmark reigns supreme. Boasting AI that can outflank you at 10 paces, and 15 varied campaign missions with the promise of more to come, at two quid it's a steal; with multiplayer, it'd be obscene.

    An engaging, polished, and deep strategy game with just a few niggles to dull the shine.

    If you have just a bit of love for strategy games, you will fall for Ravenmark. For a ridiculous price, you'll get a masterpiece. This title excels on so many sides, that you'll be amazed you're playing on a smartphone. Witching Hour Studios begins its journey on App Store in a excellent way, keeping our expectations very high for their next title.

    Ravenmark is without doubts the best turn-based strategy game for iOS, and the only one that can be compared with the greatest franchises in the genre. The only shame is that the story and its characters are very weak but in terms of game mechanics, GUI and presentation, Witched Hour's game is top notch.

    I seriously couldn't be happier. Witching Hour's maiden project Ravenmark: Scourge of Estellion is almost everything this iPhone-touting strategy game aficionado could ask for, and as long as you're a fan of its somewhat hardcore nature, I will eat my fuzzy hat if you don't find yourself thinking the same.

    Just about perfect as a tactical game on the iPhone. It's beautiful, it's engaging, and it's a lot of fun to play. The only problem that it has -aside from the somewhat steep learning curve- is this title isn't universal for iOS devices, so folks trying to enjoy this on the iPad won't get a great-looking game if they play it in its full-screen mode. Other than that? It's rare to find something as excellent (and epic) as this.

    For fans of titles like Final Fantasy Tactics and Advance Wars, Ravenmark will certainly scratch that strategy game itch.

    Pretty impressive for a debut game. Excellent mechanics, I really wouldn't mind playing an enchanced PC-version. [Feb 2012]
