Summary: This game began well -- in plague-ridden Venice a woman and her daughter have been kidnapped during a gondola ride. The husband/father enlists you, the Detective, to find and save them! You discover this has something to do with Redemption, a secret society. You have to solve lots of HO games and several not-so-hard puzzles in some beautiful and bizarre locales -- but what does any of this have to do with those women or the secret society?
Summary: I highly enjoyed this game. The story was intriguing and actually was one of the main reasons I got it. Love any game that has talking characters - it just adds a more personal touch to the game, so long as it's not corny dialogue. Mini-games were good, some were a little too easy, but I'd rather have it that way, than too hard, to the point of frustration. These games are supposed to be for fun.
Summary: Even though I hate HO games, I'm not going to rate it down because of that. This was an accidental download. Loved the opening sequence of the CE demo so I decided to tough it out and bought it. The HO scenes are very busy and cluttered. I toughed them out initially because they seemed to be far enough apart. By the end, I threw in the towel and clicked like a wild banshee. Too many HO scenes at the end.
Summary: When I saw the ERS logo when the game was launched, I knew I was in for a treat. True enough this was another fantastic game from the game maker. Absolutely high quality graphics accompanied by an outstanding music soundtrack selection. And the sound, effects and animation, including the cut scenes were all with high production value. Loved all the hidden objects scenes and the mini-games/puzzles were really fun.
Summary: I always come here before I buy a game, this one was no different. The graphics in this game are incredible, look at the spiderweb in the kitchen, it is actually moving in the breeze. The game was a little short but I liked not having a map because it made it more challenging to remember where I needed to go back to finish up something. The HOG scenes were pretty easy but that's not so bad. My favorite part was...wait for it....the music! I loved it!
Summary: Good solid game as usual from ERS. They have quite a distinct way of drawing. I enjoyed the merchant of venice and buying things I needed. The scenes were beautifully drawn with movement in most and the game play fun although somewhat predictable. Unlike others I had no need of a map whatsoever. The areas ended their usefulness and then there was no need to return to them. The voice acting was pretty sad. lol Really especially near the end.
Summary: Venice is another iHOG from ERS Studios where you are a detective looking for two abducted women. I am a huge ERS fan! I love the polished, thought thru feel of their games, and can overlook strange voice-acting and inconsistencies due to the strong game play. They have a formula that works for me. But Venice is just… blah… It has the wonderful graphics, clear HO scenes, and strong adventure gameplay of any ERS game.
Summary: I played the SE version. This was a fun short hidden object game. I thought the scenes were very well drawn. I didn't have a hard time finding objects which is a big deal to me. I liked finding the fans which gave extra hints. What I liked about this game a lot was that there wasn't that much backtracking, but enough to keep things interesting.
