GodisaGeek: "Realms of Ancient War is not a bad game on its own merits. It’s a fantasy hack ‘n’ slash that offers the monster-slaying and loot-hoarding that you’d expect, but it does it in such a lacklustre, been-there done-that kind of way that you almost feel patronised when the pop-up tutorial explains the loot quality colour-scale that we’ve all seen around twelve-thousand times before.
Almost completely creatively bankrupt, horrendously buggy and not very pretty, even for a downloadable title R.A.W. struggles to make its presence felt. XBLA gamers would be better served by downloading the gorgeous Torchlight, PC gamers have attractive alternative options coming out of their ears and even those on PSN could pick up Dungeon Hunter Alliance for a more enjoyable romp. Disappointing, yes – but, sadly, not surprisingly so."
