    While the story was less than original, and players can't customize the central character, Ravensword: the Fallen King is an amazing attempt to bring a console-sized, open-world RPG to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Developer Crescent Moon Games has not only provided an AAA game for Apple's mobile platform, but has raised the bar for portable gaming on any device.

    In many ways Ravensword reaches beyond the limitations of its native hardware and you could argue that this is its one true downfall. If you can look past the poor draw distance, and you should, you will find an irresistible leviathan of a game.

    Anyone looking for a vast, engaging Western RPG, or even just a big, important game for their iDevice, need look no further.

    All the shiny graphics and technological feats in the world can't make up for the fact that Ravensword feels more like a beefed-up proof-of-concept demo than a full-fledged game.

    Right now, it's strictly for the casual RPG fan. And I'm not exactly sure how many casual RPG fans are flipping through the App Store.

    Limited character customisation dulls Ravensword: The Fallen King, a trade between accessibility and depth preventing this enjoyable adventure from being truly epic.

    For a late 2009 iOS game, Ravensword is pretty damn good, with an expansive world of ice, fire, and forest, bosses that are visually stunning (I'm looking at you, giant troll), and a not-too-shabby item list. This is one of the first (if not THE first) RPGs for mobile devices and even by modern-day standards, is still a decent game. If you're looking for better graphics and user experience, a sequel HAS BEEN RELEASED! (2012) Expand

    The game is decent enough for the iOS. The graphics seem like plastic action figures a toddler would play with. Even though it boasts an open world you are really on a set path either going one way or another. The story is bad, yet the game could suck you in for an hour without you getting bored. The side quest attempt was lazy, and the game really doesn't top even old Elder Scrolls Battlespire. Still this game is a bargain if you are looking for something to do for an hour or an hour and a half. Still, it is only barley worth a dollar. Expand
