  • Summary: Raven Squad puts players in control of two groups of mercenary squads who crash land behind enemy lines in the Amazonian jungles. It requires tactical planning and a liberal amount of brute force to escape to safety. Each of the eight squad members possesses distinctive skills and weaponryRaven Squad puts players in control of two groups of mercenary squads who crash land behind enemy lines in the Amazonian jungles. It requires tactical planning and a liberal amount of brute force to escape to safety. Each of the eight squad members possesses distinctive skills and weaponry that the player has to use wisely to progress through the game's story driven objectives. Raven Squad sets itself apart by allowing players to switch freely between real-time strategy and first-person shooter gameplay. Only by mastering both of these modes of play, and becoming adept at switching between the two, can players make it out of the jungle alive. [SouthPeak Games] Expand

  1. Ultimately, Raven Squad has its share of problems, there is no denying that. On the same token, I can't say I didn't have a great time playing through it, even though it only took one sitting of about 5-6 hours.

    Unrefined and full of flaws, but entertaining - in as may good ways as bad. [Nov 2009, p.86]
  4. Raven Squad is bland, boring and definitely not fun. Avoid it at all cost.
  5. Just another ruined idea to throw on the ever-increasing pile. Not even the fact that one of the lines includes the term, "Satan's little piss-pot," could save this.
  6. You'd be a Raven lunatic to buy it. [Oct 2009, p.90]
  7. Plagued by poor and outdated graphics, horrid voice acting and some of the dumbest AI of the year, the potential hit quickly turned into another bitter miss. Too bad.

    With all the top notch games coming out this fall, it's almost a given that lesser games will pop up before then. Raven Squad is one of With all the top notch games coming out this fall, it's almost a given that lesser games will pop up before then. Raven Squad is one of those lesser games...much, much lesser. I've played bad games that were better than this. boring story, broken A.I., confusing controls....and very horrid voice work. Expand

    This game is pretty bad, so bad you wonder how it ever got made. The voice acting is some of the worst I've ever heard, the enemy A.I. is badThis game is pretty bad, so bad you wonder how it ever got made. The voice acting is some of the worst I've ever heard, the enemy A.I. is bad and moves very non-realistically, and has a 4-hour campaign. That being said, I actually kind of enjoyed my play-through its campaign. The shooting mechanics aren't good, but they are kind of fun. The setting is typically shooter setting, nothing new to see here. I can't believe when people put this thing together and thought after watching the cut scenes, playing it, and listening to the voices they thought that this was an acceptable product. Expand
