Ravaged (computer game review)

Publisher: Reverb Publishing
Developer: 2 Dawn Games
Platform: PC
Genre: First-Person Shooter
Release Date: October 17, 2012


A team-based first-person multiplayer shooter like no other, Ravaged is set in a post-apocalypse world ripped apart by natural disasters. Chronicling the struggle between the “Resistance” and the “Scavengers” as they fight for vanishing resources and territory, Ravaged asks players to join the fight for survival.


  • Choose up to 10 of the air and ground vehicles to transport your troops, wreaking havoc on all that lay before them while stealing their resources.
    • Ground vehicles include: Trike ATV, Muscle car, Buggy, Tractor Tank, Quad ATV, Light Armored 4x4, Pickup truck, and Stryker.
    • Air Vehicles include: Gyrocopter and MH-6 Mini Helicopter.
Impressive array of gun and melee weapons for strategic and exciting combat.
      Scavenger weapons include: Throwing Cleaver, M4A1 Assault Riifle, Double-barreled Shotgun, Submachine Gun, Sodabomb, Crossbow, Heavy Revolver, and various others. 
Resistance weapons include: Throwing Knife, Hand Grenade, Hunting Rifle, M249 Machine Gun, M79 Grenade Launcher, Stinger, and various others.

Experience as many as eight disparate multiplayer maps, some large enough for 32-player combat which encourage large-scale vehicular tactics. Other maps small enough to force just eight players into up close and personal combat.

    Maps include: Canyon, Oilrig, Liberty, Chasm, Icebreaker, Bridge, Derelict, and Rooftop

Skill-based flying and driving styles reward players who master them.

Free dedicated server tools to build clans along with the implementation of anti-cheat software and global bans. RCON tools for remote server control are made available.

Leaderboards and stats permit players to compare their intense combative skills.

Spectator mode to support eSports.

Play as one of two competing groups: the Resistance, a group of freedom fighters trying to rebuild society, or the Scavengers, a band of roving marauders hell-bent on claiming everything for themselves. Both sides offer five unique classes, each with its own specific weapon load out.


I played the Beta test with a bunch of people online for a few days and it took me a bit of time figuring out the controls because it was keyboard control and I am used to playing games with my  wired controller but after a few hours of playing this game i got use to which keys do what.  If you like first-person multi-player games then you will absolutely love this one. It is so fun even if like me you are horrible at this genre of games and the graphics are pretty good too but i thought the sound quality could have been better.

Ravaged can be purchased for $24.99(USD) at  Steam, 2DawnGames, GameStop, Gamers Gate, Origin, Rain Digital Games  and GameFly.

I give this game 4 out of 5
