Remastered is a somewhat misleading suffix, and you can excuse yourself for assuming that this is a remaster of a classic 80’s point and click adventure – that’s what I had assumed. A little research reveals that this is in-fact a port of the 2013 PC title The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief, adapted and polished for consoles.
For the uninitiated, which included myself prior to playing this game, Beast Quest is a popular series of books aimed at children around the age of 7.
