Realms of Ancient War

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • Summary: I'm a sucker for action-RPGs, dungeon crawlers, hack-and-slash...things -- you know, whatever you want to call them. Those games. My wife and I eat them up like candy, sometimes over the course of a mere weekend (as was the case with the Norrath series and the Gauntlet franchise). Days that I'm disinterested in an action-RPG come less frequently than a total eclipse of the sun, which is why I was so excited to try out Realms of Ancient War ; a recent entry into the genre...

Review: Realms of Ancient War

New Gamer Nation
15 November 2012
  • Conclusion: Realms of Ancient War is not perfect, but it is one of the best downloadable titles of 2012. It’s great for playing with friends, dungeon-crawling, and hunting for the best possible loot. It is definitely a game that should be checked out.

Realms of Ancient War

Everyday Gamers
25 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Action-RPGs have exploded this year, with Diablo III and Torchlight II releasing in one year.  Most other entries have not been brave enough to step into that ring, that is until Realms of Ancient War (R.A.W.) came out!  This new action-RPG, from Focus Home Interactive and Wizarbox, has been released on both XBOX LIVE Arcade, PSN and PC, but will it tear you away from others in the genre, or just make you tear your hair out?
  • Pros: Unique storyline for each character, Fluid gamepad controls
  • Cons: Poor save system, Incarnation mechanic underused, Lacks enticing loot, Little in terms of character class innovation

R.A.W. - Realms of Ancient War

Hooked Gamers
4 October 2012
  • Conclusion: RPG fanatics willing to tough it out can probably find something to enjoy in R.A.W. , but it won’t be anything they haven’t experienced anywhere else. Your money would be better spent on one of the countless other RPGs available to download on PC, XBLA and PSN.

  • Conclusion: If you were to have asked me a couple of days ago I would have told you that it seemed as if a couple of developers had nailed down the fundamentals for a great dungeon crawler/loot 'em up, and that this hopefully would elevate the genre in its entirety. Borderlands 2 and Torchlight II showed us how captivating action experiences could be combined with role playing elements and loot, and it seemed as if the genre was experiencing a golden age.
  • Pros: + At times decent music. + A grand selection of three characters to choose from.
  • Cons: - Poor visuals. - Technical flaws. - Awful combat system. - Problem ridden co-op. - Sub-par AI.

Realms of Ancient War

Konzolista.cz
30 June 2013
  • Summary: Realms of Ancient War mel našlápnuto stát se velkým konzolovým hitem, když konkurence z první ligy na konzolích chybí. Nakonec ale selhal hned v několika rovinách, hratelností počínaje a technickým zpracováním konče. Snad se z tohoto vývojáři poučí a příští jejich hra dopadne o mnoho lépe. Nevyužitý potenciál u Realms of Ancient War s nimi ale zůstane, a nebude bolet jenom je, ale i nás hráče.

R.A.W. - Realms of Ancient War

tarreo.com
5 December 2012
  • Summary: Un hack & slash que se queda corto
  • Pros: Esquema de control amigable. Framerate trabaja eficazmente con presencia de muchos enemigos en pantalla. Acción constante.
  • Cons: Ausencia de cooperativo online. Personalización y árbol de habilidades muy limitado. Carencia total de un sistema defensivo. Dependencia de maná para atacar. No se puede interactuar con los escenarios de ninguna forma.

R.A.W.: Realms of Ancient War

Stopgame
23 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Выпускать в 2012-м году игру в духе (а скорее, даже в жанре) Diablo можно только по трем причинам: если вы работаете в Blizzard , если вы — братья Эрик и Макс Шеферы (которые там раньше работали, а теперь заправляют в Runic Games ), либо если вы — наивный идиот. Французов из Wizarbox при всем уважении к авторам Gray Matter и So Blonde в данном случае приходится отнести именно к третьей группе. Свою action/RPG R.A.W.
  • Pros: разные сюжетные завязки для разных героев; бешеная динамика; наличие кооператива; ряд интересных задумок.
  • Cons: примитивный игровой процесс; отсутствие многих стандартных для жанра возможностей; не самое удобное управление.

  • Conclusion: Ni déplaisant, ni mauvais, techniquement correct, ce titre fait penser à un élève qui se contente du strict minimum. On a pas envie de le descendre mais on trouve quand même qu'il aurait pu faire mieux. A réserver aux inconditionnels du genre qui seraient allergiques à Diablo III.
  • Pros: plutôt bien fait, le jeu à deux en coop
  • Cons: classique, trop classique, vraiment trop classique, des boss sans envergure, du texte trop petit, arbre des compétences trop simple

Realms of Ancient War

Gamereactor
24 September 2012
  • Conclusion: Havde du spurgt mig for blot et par dage siden, ville jeg have fortalt dig at det for alvor virkede som om der var et par udviklere, der havde luret hvordan en god dungeon crawler skulle skrues sammen, og at det forhåbentlig ville betyde et generelt løftet niveau for genren. Borderlands 2 og Torchlight II viste nemlig hvordan heftige actionoplevelser sagtens kunne skrues sammen med rollespil og loot, og for en tid så det ud som intet kunne gå galt for genren.
  • Pros: Til tider godkendt musik, hele tre figurer at vælge i mellem!
  • Cons: Grumset grafik, teknisk elendigt, dårligt kampsystem, forfejlet co-op, mangelfuld AI
