Review: The Raven Episode One I Expansive

Thieves, gangsters, and distrustful bystanders. Murder, mystery and a journey across land and sea. If this sounds familiar, it’s because the latest title from developer King Art Games, The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief seems to take its cues from the works of well-known author Dame Agatha Christie, her influence permeating every element of the game, from the familiar periodic setting to the family-friendly feel that the game emanates.

The Raven puts players in the shoes of Anton Jakob Zellner, an endearing policeman (easily mistaken for Hercule Poirot with that moustache) who we follow as he travels far and wide in an exciting tale of murder, mystery and jewel thieves. The debut instalment in a three-part episodic series, it offers a wonderful and deeply engrossing story that players will not want to put down until they reach the end, and after that they'll be left eager for more. With intriguing characters, (including what may as well be a cameo from Christie herself), outstanding voice-work, and a beautiful soundtrack, The Raven is a marvellous example of an engaging heist adventure that hooks its talons in you from the very beginning. (PC, PS3, The Raven - Legacy of a Master Thief, Xbox 360) 4/5
