Summary: I got The Raven, Chapter One as a free download with XBox Gold. Being new to the adventure game genre, it took a bit of getting used to. But this game really shines in the first chapter--the protagonist is interesting, the music is good, and the game's atmosphere really draws you in, so much so that I paid to download chapters 2 and 3. Spoiler free here, except to say that there is a narrative shift in the middle, which through me off a bit.
Summary: So disappointed. I got through the first two chapters and then the third wouldn't do anything. The opening video played and then the game just hung. I looked everywhere online and tried several different help lines. No use - it seems I'm not the only one who has had this problem either there are complaints everywhere online about this third chapter. Really would have liked to see how it ended.
Summary: I downloaded Episode 1 of this game and was soooooo disappointed. I happen to love point-and-click adventure games as well as dialog-based games, but this one just falls short in so many ways. First of all, prepare to spend a great deal of your time watching the loading screen (which consists of a pocket watch and a random hint at the bottom).
Summary: Fun game with intriguing story and twist, just wish that there would have been more for me as the game player to do. The animation is excellent and the characters were fun. I especially liked playing part three as the thief, it fills in all of the missing pieces of the story for you. If you enjoy solving mysteries crimes, I would definitely recommend this game to you.
Summary: Pros: Good story Decent voice acting Graphics are rather nice. True point and click adventure game. Cons: Character movement, especially between sections of the environment, can be annoying. Occasional poor character animations (example, mouth movements of certain supporting characters) Ending "twist" doesn't really surprise.
Very enjoyable adventure game with clever mystery based plot

Summary: I really enjoyed the plot of this game. Homage to Agatha Christie and very intricate twist that fooled me up until the end. Starts off kind of slow but gets very interesting and involved during the second act. Loved the atmosphere and story.
Summary: Although seeming a bit clunky at first, I soon began to enjoy this game a lot. It is quite enjoyable for those who like an old style point and click adventure and an Agatha Christie style story-line. The graphics are terrific as is the acting.
Summary: This is one of the best adventure games I've played in a long time. The story is very intriguing and the characters well drawn and interesting. There are three chapters told from different viewpoints. I think everyone would really enjoy playing this game.
Summary: There is a long introductory sequence. It's the 1940's. You start out in the British Museum. It's night, and the museum is closed. The security guard pauses in reading the newspaper to call for his coworker, Harold. There's no answer from Harold, so the guard goes looking for him. Before he finds Harold, lying knocked out on the floor, a copper surprises him.
Summary: I liked very much this studio's last game, The Book of Unwritten Tales. One of the best of the genre. So I was looking forward for this game. Although it isn't a bad game, I miss the sense of humour of the aforementioned game. Still it has some puns in the game albeit this one is in a rather classic setting that leaves less territory for fun. Pros: Good, logical, clean puzzles, I liked very much this studio's last game, The Book of Unwritten Tales.
