What are the pros and cons of each chapter?
http://wh40k.lexicanum.com/wiki/Main_Page#.Um0CixDwrZA U can research yourself through the Lexicanum Brother space marine and find the chapter that fits ure playstyle
No Blood Ravens?
No one knows anything about ingame mechanics as for now. Because there aren't any yet.
For the rest: Lexicanum as told about. Search for the different chapters and read a bit into it.
While ill probably be bagged on for being an Ultramarine fan, heres what they got
No gene seed mutation, pure as the primarch Roboute Guiliman
Jack of all trades, while not exceeding at one skill, they are equally good at all
All worlds of Ultramarines are left in alot better shape than other Imperial worlds
Follows the Codex to the letter and know every letter and punctuation, giving them great tactical awareness
Most Ultramarines see the Codex as a holy book, and will never deviate from it, making them predictable
As i said, Jack of all Trades, they're not specialists like the Space wolves, Blood Angels, or Dark Angels
Matt ward writes our lore (sorry had to write that in)
Everyone will bag on you for being an Ultramarine fan
Interesting thing about them is that Their Primarch is the only Loyal one Confirmed as "living" while others are either confirmed dead or MIA, while Roboute is in Stasis in the Temple of Hera, giving great theorycrafting for lore things.
Reason why many people dont like Ultramarines is cause they're simple marines, they dont got any cool mutation, and they're the "good" guys, while all the other chapters have some sort of darker nature to them. Personally i dont have a problem with this because we dont need a mutation to fight for the emperor, it only makes us shine brighter in his eyes
Blood ravens are more of a mysterious chapter, considering they just appeared out of nowhere, little is known of their origin.
"The Blood Ravens are a Loyalist Space Marine Chapter of unknown origins and Founding. The origins of the Blood Ravens are shrouded in mystery and are belived to be tied to a dark truth related to the Horus Heresy. This elusive Chapter has always been drawn to the pursuit of knowledge and the acquisition of ancient lore and produces an unusually high number of Librarians among its ranks as a high proportion of Neophytes develop psychic abilities soon after their implantation with the Blood Ravens' gene-seed organs. The powerful Blood Ravens Librarians guide the Chapter, enabling them to fight with a precision and calculated fury made possible by their ability to predict and thwart their enemy's strategies and tactics before they come to pass. These arcane powers have led to great speculation and some worry about the true nature and origins of this Chapter in the rest of the Imperium of Man."

No, just lame. Relic didn't put much effort into creating any good lore about them, so they were just made as a Thousand-Sons-ripoff without any identity and background. It was even made worse when GW tried to implement some real lore, which made them into artefact-stealers and idiots, still having no origin and background, and selling this as "mysterious history" as an escuse for not giving them a history.
It's a practical joke like the unknown legions, only worse, because with those GW at least decided to publish nothing from the start to keep the mystery, where the BR are just lame and boring because they are a cliche in a cliche.
@ Aadil: you really prefer that ripoff wikia?
One of the least likely chapters to fall to chaos
Kicks too much ass, other chapters feel left out
Can turn into a massive raging werewolf (could be a pro)
Next to the ultrasmurfs they are the biggest chapter (because they are a legion, therefore have almost the most history)
