Best of all, The Raven Remastered isn’t the only remastered classic game that Nordic Games will publish this year for Nintendo Switch. In just a couple of days you can expect to see the Switch version of Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, and, not too long after that, also KING Art’s fantasy masterpiece The Book of Unwritten Tales 2. Judging by all this, it seems that this will be a great year for all Nintendo Switch gamers.
A story that keeps you on the edge of your seat is hugely important to point and click adventures such as The Raven Remastered. And thanks to its clever writing and mostly believable voice acting, it manages to accomplish that. It’s not quite up there with the likes of the original Broken Sword, but it deserves to be remembered as a cult classic. Control issues aside, The Raven Remastered is one of the best point and click style adventures available right now, and its presence on Switch is very much welcome.
That's probably a good way to sum up The Raven Remastered: serviceable but underwhelming. The title shows plenty of promise with its characters and story, but the sluggish gameplay, questionable acting, and mediocre audiovisual presentation drag it down. Mystery fans and avid Christie book readers will find something to like with The Raven's narrative, but the rougher edges make it a tough experience to recommend to all but the most dedicated and patient of players.
