It's not the worst game I've played surely, but it's pretty damn bad. I will give props for trying to combine two vastly different genres in RTS and FPS. Unfortunately, neither aspect turned out well. The RTS functions abre bare-bones and offer no real tactical strategy, while the FPS segments are clunky, barely responsive, and horribly repetitive. Pass, even on sale.

Sometimes when I play games I get super bored, because we have practically seen it all by now. When a title shows up and manges to amuse me I have to write about it. It doesn't have to be really good just a bit innovative or developer has taken path off the beaten road. Raven Squad is title like that. Its a mix of RTS with FPS. Action is set in a jungle and you command a squad of commandos with different equipment and abilities. You can switch between tactical view from the sky and first person view action. I liked that idea and mixing gameplay with different styles. Sadly execution is far from stella. both parts of the game are a bit sub-par to the standards. Also controls are a bit awkward and it doesn't feel cool to shoot and blow stuff up. So thats a big minus for me. Plus the AI is really on low level and that makes the game more of frustrating than challenging. Sadly this is another unpolished product that had the idea right but is far from being really good.

Raven Squad may sound good at first glance but it's just another mediocre Shooter that tried to blend Genres and failed horribly. The voice acting is cheesy, the AI is horrible and controls are just as bad. The Story is on par with a Seagal or Van Damme Movie. There is really nothing good about this game. The bad port does not help it in any way imageinable. This Game is not worth your Money!

Games that claim to be revolutionary or original often have higher expectations set upon them. Raven Squad is one of those games, an FPS which claims to seamlessly meld first-person shooting with real-time strategy. Instead of leaving a mess of enemy corpses behind, the developers left a mess of bugs, making it a terribly glitchy game from the get-go. The graphics were extremely bland, giving off the feeling as though the game wasn’t finished in places. The shooting was even blander, with no real feeling of power or kickback from the weapons. While the RTS-FPS function technically worked, the allied AI pathfinding and aiming was horrible, making it a chore for players to manage fireteams and combat squads.

What do you get if you combine a real time strategy game with a first person shooter? This abomination is the answer. It doesn't convince in either one of the genres, as the first person shooter part isn't smooth enough, the graphics mediocre, and the story boring. The real time strategy part can be fun from time to time, but this mainly is a shooter, so you'll be quite dissapointed if you're going to buy this game for the latter...
