  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]

    Raven's cry vs Assassins Creed Black Flag

    If you are waiting for a game as " assassins creed black flag" forget. But if you are waiting for
    Raven's cry vs Assassins Creed Black Flag

    If you are waiting for a game as " assassins creed black flag" forget. But if you are waiting for a different game but similar to AC BF maybe this game is not a bad idea.
    This game is a different game but in many ways resemble the " asssassins creed BF"

    Despite my expectations are such a good game or better than " Assassins creed black flag"
    The truth is that the legends are not manufactured every year , but rather appear from time to time . It is unfair to be demanding a computer game as good or better than the " Assassins creed BF".

    Let see:

    - Naval battles:

    Yes, it's identical to AC BF, but the commands are more complicated and the guns are not so accurate.
    We have various types of ammunition and unlike AC BF board the ship is not very easy.
    In this game we can buy other boats and make upgrades in them as in AC BF
    The line of fire is equal to the AC however has only one direction and is controlled only up and down. Has more realism to be this way, is not as arcade style.
    The death in the crew is the same as AC. Depending we being targeted the crew dies.

    - Trade and earn money

    Yes, we can buy and sell goods where it is most profitable.
    We won more board a ship instead of destroying it

    - Fights

    The commands are more complicated and not so spontaneous.
    We have various kinds of items to equip, swords, pistols, etc. and we can buy a wide range of options.
    Defend sword attack is much more hard than the AC BF, and sometimes it makes little sense. If we are not facing enemy no need to defend because we are always hurted.... The animation when the enemy is hit is not as good as AC BF.
    Ammunition for the pistol are very expensive. One bullet costs 100 (One shot only). change the ship's sails for example are 150 ..
    We can kill the enemy without him repair, but always on the ground as opposed to AC.
    Sometimes the movements are stopped, but it's nothing special.
    Only some weapons we can get from the dead bodies, but we can loot something else

    - Graphics, dialogs and history.

    The dialogues have a bug, sometimes the actors lose the voice and put subtitles to replace the sound.
    The graphics are good and the atmosphere is pleasant and realistic.
    We have the main story and many other quests over playing time.
    The graphics from time to time have bugs but nothing serious.
    Sometimes the player gets stuck in the scenario.

    This game awfulness is so sad that i just can't give it a 0, all games that are this awful are usually at least fun, like Rambo. Even though,This game awfulness is so sad that i just can't give it a 0, all games that are this awful are usually at least fun, like Rambo. Even though, horrible story and character, the first time i saw a developer hoping to make a character that we don't like, a racist, rapist, killer pirate who doesn't reminds us at all of Edward Kenway or other famous pirates in fiction. The game has a horrible art direction, an awful engine, with an awful combat system full with bugs and such thinhs like that. The small fun i mentioned comes from the ship combat, that as awful has anything other in the game is, it's still very intense and real. Just don't buy this. For Christ sake Expand

    Raven's cry feels like an early access game. It feels like a game in its alpha stage. The mechanics, ideas are there, but the way they didRaven's cry feels like an early access game. It feels like a game in its alpha stage. The mechanics, ideas are there, but the way they did everything is extremely bad.

    The game feels sluggish, movement is somewhat responsive, but it doesn't feel like you're moving a person, more like a box with a pair of legs. Combat is absolutely horrible, it's binary and is basically one button mashing until the red bar on the top of your screen disappears, no skill needed. Not to mention the forced stealth sections that were put in the game for absolutely no reason at all. Tutorials on anything are absolutely horrible, it's like they've been done for the sake of being done, not to teach the player how to play the game.
    There are quite a few cutscenes in the game and they all are awful. Voice actors don't even seem like they are trying, lip syncing is either very bad, non existent or the mouth literally does not move. Sometimes there is no voice at all only the mouth movement, or neither of the two. The characters barely move during cutscenes - the entire face is stone cold 90% of the time, no facial expressions regardless weather the character is shouting, scared, angry, etc.

    There is one good thing - the ship fighting, it's pretty interesting, has nice mechanics, is somewhat well made.

    There is no way this game is worth 49.49€, not until they finish it. At best it's a 10€ project in it's alpha state.

    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.
