    5 years later, KING Art's game still proves to be a brilliant adventure game, compelling, full of plot twists and with a great soundtrack. If you like adventure games and detective stories, this is a must buy.

    It may not have truly next-gen visuals and the movement of constable Zellner may be a little clunky, but its captivating story, entertaining characters and rewarding point and click gameplay more than compensate for any shortcomings.

    The Raven Remastered still has a great story, great characters and a great soundtrack. Despite the remastering, the game still feels old.

    The Raven is back, but their legacy neither enhances or tarnishes this return. Maybe check it out in the sale if you enjoy a good Poirot-esque story.

    The Raven Remastered isn’t a bad game. Besides its sub-par control mechanics and linear feel, the game actually has a compelling story with interesting characters. It’s no Sherlock Holmes, but it does have its good points and may well appeal to fans of such games as Black Mirror.

    The Raven returns as a renewed game, approaching an interesting point’n click adventure. But it’s too linear, undemanding and can get boring. Technically improved, but only in textures and illumination engine, tells the same story, what doesn’t seems enough to launch the game again.

    The Raven originally came out in 2013 and unfortunately I never tried it out which is a shame because I heard quite a lot of good things aboutThe Raven originally came out in 2013 and unfortunately I never tried it out which is a shame because I heard quite a lot of good things about it. As you can imagine I was pretty pleased to learn that it was making its way to Xbox One in the form of a remaster, and thankfully I’m glad I tried it out this time because it’s a very good point-and-click adventure. Without a doubt the best thing about this game is its story and to say it had me hooked throughout would be a massive understatement. Each chapter has had a lot of thought and effort put into it and the writing shines through at all times, which of course makes the character’s stand out quite considerably. Each character in the game is interesting and they each have their own little quirks which ultimately makes you become even more attached to the story. In terms of gameplay The Raven Remastered doesn’t have a great deal to sink your teeth into, but the gameplay that is present is thankfully decent enough. Some of the puzzles in the game have been done really well but I must admit that some of the puzzles also didn’t fit in with what was going on storywise which did hurt the immersion levels a little bit at times. I will say though that every puzzle I completed felt very rewarding because some can go on for quite a while and they do require a little thought every now and then. In terms of content the game has a generous amount for you to be getting on with and I very rarely got bored thanks to the fantastic story. I did however have a few frustrating moments and that was mainly down to the awkward movement of the characters and the controls that went with it, but thankfully this was only a small problem and I was able to look past it quite quickly. The presentation side of the game had a couple of technichal issues but it still didn’t stop me from enjoying what was on offer here. Visually the game looks pretty good most of the time and when you combine that with the excellent sound design and voice acting it does more than enough to satisfy you. At the end of the day if like me you never played the original of this game then I thoroughly recommend you try out The Raven Remastered. It’s one of the most enjoyable point-and-click adventures I’ve played and it will have you hooked by its fantastic story from start to finish. I love when games surprise me and without a doubt The Raven Remastered did surprise me and in the end it gets a big thumbs up from me. Expand
