    The best-case scenario for Ravensword: Shadowlands might be to consider it as a budget RPG, but its lack of depth and minor annoyances make it only partially successful at that.

    Despite a great graphics and a big open world, Shadowlands feels very unpolished. It's still a nice attempt to bring a classic RPG experience on iOS, but three years after The Last King users have higher expectations.

    Shadowlands has great potential that's crushed beneath obfuscated mechanics, odd interface design, and a slew of bugs that should have been removed before its release; no doubt updates will smooth things out, but until then the game remains a beautiful disappointment.

    A fairly basic but still entertaining adventure that provides a wonderful glimpse at the future of smartphone and tablet games.

    Ravensword Shadowlands is a game that tries to do too much for its own good. While clear effort was placed into visual effects, and creating a wide variety of environments, the elements to fill out these areas are just not present.

Unfortunately I bought into the hype and bought the game. Don't make the same mistake. Full Review »
