Summary: This is a decent bargain-priced game. The story is very cliche in the beginning. I have not played all the way through (and probably will not). This game began to captivate me the more I played it... until the first real-boss fight. I won't go into much detail to avoid getting "on a soap box"...
Summary: I gave it a five star rating, because while it isn't up to par with present graphics, it isn't that bad either. The visuals were, in fact, quite pleasing. I finally finished it and am now doing replays. When I look at a game I want to know how long I'm going to be able to play it. If you find a game like Venetica, that can give you ultimate hours of play and then replay, then I consider it a jewel.
Summary: Can't complain about a free item... but I did. Oh well, until I get my gift card, it technically isn't free. But, even at 10 bucks it isn't worth it.
Pros: It was on sale for nothing. New in box. Arrived pretty quick. Installation was easy and quick. No DRM software like Steam or Origin. Graphics are decent for a game that is almost 4 years old. I'm playing on a 3210m / HD 4000 GPU and running the game in high detail.
Cons: The game is not very interesting. The cut scenes are terribly voice acted. Honestly, I have no idea what the game is about. I've had it for nearly 2 months now and have only played it twice. It isn't one of those games that you look forward to playing when you get home from work or school. And when you do get around to playing it, it feels more like a chore than a game. I suppose this is why they are giving it away.
Summary: If the game is on sale for cheap I would recommend getting it. If nothing else, it is another game to play until you beat it.
Pros: The game was on sale for free after rebate card and included free shipping, so obviously it was a good deal regardless. The game itself is pretty fun and has stupid sounding voice-overs which is actually funny most of the time so it is not a con.
