    Crow is universal. But owners of the new iPad should definitely choose their iPads over their iPhones to take advantage of the beautiful and strange graphics in the game.

    Crow's simple storyline keeps things short and punchy, dragging the player through a wonderful fantasy world filled with strange creatures and challenging rail-shooting segments; fun for all ages.

    Crow is an interesting game with fresh gameplay mechanics and a stunning graphical impact.

    Crow is a nice surprise for those who love action-adventure in a dark-fantasy world. Touch controls are well implemented and visually the game offers a great mix of magic landscapes and solid rapresentation. On the other side Crow doesn't have a great longevity and the plot is not great.

    The Crow is an experiment in storytelling and design, but it doesn't quite give the ultimate experience.

    I think it's safe to say Crow is a mixed bag, but is still worth picking up because it so much uniqueness to offer. Because it does look so stellar, you can't help but wish those little design flaws (like trading a d-pad for your finger being in the middle of the screen at all times) weren't there.

    Pretty but repetitive. This angry bird is also quite hard to control.

    Playing as the titular creature, you'll vacillate between top-down exploration and on-rails combat as you interact with the beautiful environments and fight to stay alive.

    Crow should be lauded for ambition and its attempt to raise the bar in mobile gaming. At risk of looking a gift horse in the mouth, however, I'd argue that it doesn't deviate all that far from the platform's mini-game standards; instead, it wraps them in a much glossier package.

    The distances of attacks are not that easy to understand, which makes the battles feel a bit random in nature. More importantly the on-rails nature of the battles can turn the game into an endless flier circling around the enemy. However, the excellent dark mood created by the sound, and mellower flight sections are well worth experiencing.

    Crow is just like its titular character – dark, gothic, and unfriendly. It's an uninvited guest that you can't stand in your house, but something compels you to get to know this person better.

    Crow is definitely style over substance, and good graphics and a fascinating concept can't overcome the fact that the game is simply too boring.

    A strangely lovable if utterly shambolic mix of gorgeous visuals and tedious game mechanics.

    The cornball story, overall slow pace and lame combat make this one game we'd like to forget.
