Raven Squad is pretty poor in just about every category. Graphics are far from good, with simple, blurry, and muddy textures, bland level design, weird button placement for controls (you run with LT and zoom clicking the right analog stick for example) very plain/generic character models, and voice acting SO BAD that its AMAZINGLY AWESOME. Yes folks, the voice acting in this game must be heard to be believed. So why am I hear today telling you that its sort of, kind of...decent? Well, I guess the same way when a movie is so bad its good and you cant help but watch it, this philosophy (to me personally) applies to Raven Squad. Gameplay- Pretty poor FPS'ing with IDIOT PROOF RTS'ing. Seriously the RTS in this game is dumbed down to the 9th degree, there is absoultey nothing to it. This would be fine if your a newcomer to FPS'ing and RTS's but if you've been playing both these genres for a long time then you'll be dissapointed greatly here. Yet again, in a very strange way....I actually enjoyed it. So bad...I cant help but like it? Yeah. Controls- For FPS you run with LT, Shoot with RT, reload with RB, and A is to switch to your secondary weapon, and Y is to go into RTS mode. In RTS mode you move your cursor around and once you know where you want your characters to go the A button is to move them, shooting is done automatically once they spot bad guys, B is to cancel a command, D-pad down is to switch between both squads, while D-pad up, left, and right is to switch to an individual member of the squads. So bad...I cant help but like it? Not really, but at least it isnt an atrocious control scheme. Sound- WOW. JUST WOW. The voice acting in this game is the one aspect that I TRULY LOVE cause its SO BAD...ITS AWESOME. It is CHEESY AS ALL HELL, and the award for worst voice acting has to go to the character of Xian. She has to have the most ridiculous accent and pronounciation of words that I have EVER heard. So bad...I cant help but like it? OH HELL YES. Length- Very short game. You can be done with it in a bout 4-5 hours on veteran (hard) difficulty and its even shorter on normal/easy. Acheivements- 46 total and there actually well varied. You'll get regular stuff such as completeing each level of the game, getting X amount of headshots, etc. Then you have about 2-3 specific achievements in each level which are pretty fun at attain. Overall not a bad achievement list at all. Again, I see Raven Squad as the so bad its good equivalent. I give developer Atomic Motion much props for trying to combine both respective genres into one package. Its cool for newcomers to both genres though everyone else may want to look far away from this title.
