    Don’t play this game. The idea of blending a first-person shooter with a real-time strategy game isn’t a bad one, but the execution was a complete failure. I’ll look back fondly at my time reviewing Raven Squad -- all three hours of it -- but only because I couldn’t stop laughing at the fact that this game exists.
  2. Raven Squad is 90 percent first-person shooter, 10 percent strategy game, and 100 percent bad.
  3. Raven Squad starts with a brilliant concept and doesn't bother to flesh it out into a fun or compelling game. It's practically a gift to competing developers. In that regard all it lacks is a note reading, "Here's a template for a hybrid FPS-RTS; do something useful with it, because we don't feel like it."
  4. Raven Squad is bland, boring and definitely not fun. Avoid it at all cost.
  5. PC Gamer
    The worst part is the voice acting. [Dec 2009, p.77]
  6. A mix of genres, especially FPS and RTS, is always a difficult thing, but in this case the developers did a good job!
  7. LEVEL (Czech Republic)
    Promising start of this game is soon drowned in identical levels, boring FPS part, stupid and user-unfriendly tactical screen. In fact there is no reason to play this. [Oct 2009]
  8. It’s not a game that you should spend your money on quite yet. Maybe, after the passage of time, when you can find it cheap or even for free, it will be worth a cursory glance. For the moment however, it’s best to skip this one out.
  9. It's quite short. The credits were rolling after less than seven hours. The weak presentation is just as annoying as the question why the game deprives the player of lots of exciting situations. There are better games of the genre like Rainbow Six: Vegas.
  10. Some people mockingly compare Raven Squad with Company of Heroes and Call of Duty. I prefer to compare it with Stormrise. These games belong to different genres but share the same approach: invent an original gameplay concept and… bungle it completely.
  11. Total PC Gaming
    Raven Squad is a wasted idea that suffers from poor execution. [Issue#25, p.52]

    When I picked up raven squad I was expecting mediocre. Not abomination, witch this game is. I hope the developers go bankrupted.
