At a Glance

The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief takes cues from mystery films of the 1960s and does a fantastic job, but the setting brings into sharp relief the shortcomings of the point-and-click genre—shoddy pacing and leaps of logic conspire to bring the game down.

Price when rated: $25.00

Pros

  • Soundtrack sets the mood perfectly.
  • Nails the tone of '60s adventure films.

Cons

  • 'Hollywood realistic" puzzles suffer from ridiculous adventure game logic.
  • Zellner’s legs are broken or something. He is incapable of running.
