  1. We take the role of Christopher Raven, who became a pirate captain after his family... ah, screw it. The game is terrible. I say that as a guy who honestly tried to become enamored of it for a week straight. [April 2015, p.62]

    Raven's Cry has very few redeemable qualities. Despite having the potential to be the ultimate pirate adventure, and the inclusion of a ton of features, it's not very fun to play and has quite a few technical issues.

    Raven's Cry is an embodiment of the term "wasted opportunity". On the basis of a great atmosphere and some interesting ideas there grew a game making an awful first impression, a game full of bugs and a wobbly gameplay. Right now Raven's Cry isn't worth its price tag but don't forget about it - after some patches and a significant price drop it should be playable.

    I genuinely do think the potential for a good pirate game is in here, somewhere, but Raven’s Cry is a mess of bugs, hazards, hiccups, oversights, and progression-halting crashes.

    There's really not much to say about Raven's Cry. It's an utter disaster, plagued not just by bugs, but by a terrible storyline and a lame gameplay.

    I suspect that if I took the ridiculous money needed to buy Raven’s Cry and instead spent it on a crate of pins, chewed them all up, swallowed them, followed up with salt, washed everything down with lemon juice and then excreted, I would have as much fun as I had in the Caribbeans by Reality Pump.

    An interesting pirate adventure which very soon degrades into a journey of horror lined with dysfunctional mechanisms and game-killing bugs. [Issue#250]

We think after some patches it´ll be a great game. Expand

    Hmm i see all negative reviews, i dont think game i so bad, it have some bugs, but nice ship battles and trading. Ship looks good and i likeHmm i see all negative reviews, i dont think game i so bad, it have some bugs, but nice ship battles and trading. Ship looks good and i like fighting and upgrading ships. Fighting on land its nothing special, could be better. I hope developer update missing voices, its annoying. Graphic is no bad. Small amount side quest but quest are interresing and not like in mmorpg, there are interesting. Story too is nice for me.
    If you focusing on ship battles and trading you will like it:)

    There is no free sailing on the seas to attack ships or around the islands, the towns have little to offer in the way of interaction, its a far cry from the elder scrolls where you may loot even the forks off the tables, explore anywhere, interact with any npcs you see fit, you get the picture.

    As well, I was underwhelmed by the dialog, there was a great deal of echo in much of the voice acting, may characters lines were silent , the language and swearing would seem over the top and out of place
    perhaps if I played longer it would improve, I doubt it.

    A poor excuse for a video game.
    Raven's Cry has to be one of the worst games i've played in recent years; it did nothing right. The game is completely broken, even worse than Sonic Boom's standards. The worst part about it is that it sometimes erases your game entirely! The game itself is trash; the combat is just mashing a button until you win, the frame rate is choppy, and the dialogue is stupid. But do you want to know what the worst part about this game is? It's packed to the brim with homophobia, racism, and sexism. It's not like South Park: The Stick of Truth where they just mention it and move on, it's practically EVERYWHERE. Did they not see that it was offensive? This game is absolute disaster, it's so bad, it's painful. If you bought this game thinking it was a good game... I am so sorry.

    Raven's Cry gets a 1/10.

    As much as more crappier than Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, I would put Raven's Cry as the ultimate worst games ever. After the buggy but slightlyAs much as more crappier than Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, I would put Raven's Cry as the ultimate worst games ever. After the buggy but slightly decent MMO Two Worlds, the folk's over at Reality Pump thought it would be a great idea to make a somewhat Assassin's Creed lookalike into a total farce. There's so much wrong with Raven's Cry. When I looked it up at GameSpot in its review, I thought this reminds me how bad Ride To Hell: Retribution really is and now you have the opposite of sucking so hard. All I'm saying is, the script is lame, weak mechanics, incohesive level design, shoddy voice acting (Take notes, OG Resident Evil), and surprise. Millions upon millions of cringeworthy bugs galore. I hope just like they removed Afro Samurai 2: Revenge of Kuma, wait till I'm laughing at this game while Steam should do the right thing as well.

    As a matter of fact, I should make my own Change.org petition and send a message to whoever made this crap. Just make a disappearing act and go away for good.

    I just played like 5 to 10 minutes of this game and was stunned by poorest gameplay, fighting scenes and childish "swearing". There`s not muchI just played like 5 to 10 minutes of this game and was stunned by poorest gameplay, fighting scenes and childish "swearing". There`s not much can be said about this game.
