In medieval times, dangerous and unexplored areas of the sea were marked on maps with drawings of sea monsters and the words, “Here be dragons,” so as to be avoided. Well, Raven’s Cry is lousy with dragons. The first time I booted it up, it crashed. The second time, another crash. On the third, I was finally able to begin my adventure as the hook-handed pirate Captain Christopher Raven, but that shaky beginning was a pretty clear sign of things to come. In fact, it’s a fitting analogy for Raven’s Cry itself: its naval combat delivers high-seas adventure, but it never finds its land legs. Ultimately, my voyage through the main quest was sunk by a game-stopping bug, but I don’t feel like I missed out by not being able to finish the story.
