Ravenlok review (Xbox)

Ravenlok is an action RPG game for Xbox systems and PC that takes players on a journey through a mystical fantasy world that feels inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Developed by Cococucumber, the creators of the critically acclaimed adventure game “Echo Generation,” it offers an engaging new world to discover and an enchanting story – here’s our take on the Xbox version.

One of the biggest positives of Ravenlok is its distinctive 3D pixel art aesthetic – with retro-inspired elements in a modern environment. The game’s world is stunning, and the pixel art elements give it a unique charm that sets it apart from other games. The game’s emotive orchestral score also complements the world, creating an immersive experience that draws players in.

Another positive of Ravenlok is its combat system. The game features real-time combat against fierce beasts and formidable monsters. Players can use a sword, shield, magical skills, and bombs to defeat their foes in epic boss encounters. The combat system is challenging but rewarding, and the game’s difficulty curve is well-balanced.


We also liked Ravenlok’s story, which focuses on a world under the reign of an evil queen who embraces darkness, and players must embark on a journey to restore light and fulfill their destiny. Throughout the game, players will meet curious creatures, complete quests, and tackle puzzles to fight against the encroaching darkness. The game’s story is engaging and well-written, and it keeps players invested in the world.

On the negative side, some players may find Ravenlok’s puzzles to be frustrating. While the puzzles are well-designed and add to the game’s challenge, they can be difficult to solve at times. Players who are not fans of puzzle-solving may find this aspect of the game to be a drawback.

Some players might also lament Ravenlok’s length. While the game offers a well-crafted world and engaging story, it can be completed in around 8-10 hours. This may be a disappointment to players who are looking for a longer gaming experience, but we do want to point out that Ravenlok is being sold at a budget price point that we feel justifies its shorter length.


Despite these drawbacks, Ravenlok is an engaging and well-crafted game that is worth playing. The game’s responsive combat system is fun to play with, while its story and distinctive art style make it an interesting title on the Xbox. Players who are fans of action RPGs and unique worlds will find a lot to love in Ravenlok.

In conclusion, Ravenlok is an enchanting action RPG game that offers a unique world, engaging story, and challenging combat. While the game’s puzzles may be frustrating at times, its distinctive art style and emotive orchestral score make it a standout title on the Xbox. Players who are looking for a well-crafted and engaging gaming experience should give Ravenlok a try.

Score: 7.0/10
