Venetica, frustratingly entertaining and addictive!

 

So here we have a game that stands on the precipice! It literally stands on a knife edge between horrid and genius. I bought this game with a mild interest in this title having been longing for an action RPG along the lines of Fable but one that has...

The gameplay is similar to Fable 3 in that you run around looting chests and vases, talking to NPC's, trading and getting quests etc. I know that this is not something that is unique to Fable 3 but the games execution, art direction and general feel...

Venetica Review

 

Venetica has too many flaws in just about every facet to make for an engrossing role-playing experience.

Dialogue choices help shape your character ; Good artistic design

Shallow and mindless combat ; Poorly developed antagonists ; Frame rate troubles and other technical issues ; Seriously flawed map ; Repetitive quests

Even though Venetica's combat requires little more than shallow button mashing, it's so riddled with problems that it can be frustrating if the tides turn against you. First of all, each of your four weapon types has a unique block you have to unlock....

The role playing genre is a crowded one on the Xbox 360, probably not too far behind first person shooters and sports games in regards to popular releases. To compete in this marketplace, you really have to create something original to the space as...

REVIEW: Rising damp meets a sinking framerate

Occasionally pretty; unique setting with an initially interesting plot

Chuggy game engine that makes gorgeous vistas a chore to navigate.; Overly simplistic combat that doesn't evolve much; awful voice-acting

Is the game name a plus or a minus? We can't decide.

Venetica – Xbox 360 ReviewPosted on November 23, 2010 | 2 CommentsIt's not often that a videogame fills you with quite so much emotion, and for the most part, when it does, it's a good thing. You perhaps feel that he...

I’ve been playing for about 10 hours and I really like it. It has received generally negative reviews but I love it I would give it about 8.5/10. I guess it's just a matter of opinion.

Writing on the Venetica website, Deck13 explains the decision to opt for a female of the species: “On the one hand we wanted to make this story interesting for girls and that's why we chose a more believable figure instead of a typical battle Amazon....

Alas, actual information about the game itself is at a premium. We honestly tried to divine what we could from the press release but our head hurt when we tried to read it. Take this humdinger, for starters: “This allows her to generate herself...
