Summary: I just finished all three play's of Venetica and didn't have a problem with the game. There are a few things I wish the developers of the game had done. First, there is no explanation of where or what happened to the mother of Scarlett. Second, near the end, you don't know what happened to Leon.
Summary: Its not very bad, its ok. Very clearly Gothic/Risen had tons of infuence, but all gothics were done better. Amazingly the areas are done awesome, Scarlet and the smith i thought were drawn very well, few more characters, her guy for 1.
Summary: This is an enjoyable game with quick-to-pick up controls and consistent visuals. The voice acting has a certain charm to it, not bad and yet kind of "obvious" acting. It brings out a nostalgia factor by playing similarly to older action/adventure fantasy titles.
Summary: I know this game has been trashed by many online reviews, but I bought it, thinking it would be a forgettable time waster. To my surprise I found it to be one of the most fun games I've played for quite some time. Highly recommended!
Summary: Venetica is a linear RPG with a captivating storyline and beautiful scenery. It is a little too easy at times, as there is very little searching in the plot required - the designers even give you a spell to cast which guides you to the next direction even if you do get a little lost.
Unjustly accused of being a flop, Scarlet proved herself to be "beautiful" in my eyes!

Summary: If there is one game that falls under the classification of "unjustified scorn" Venetica is probably it. Atari obviously believed Venetica would do well beyond Europe and by all accounts it should have. After some scathing reviews I was afraid to buy the game.
Summary: My thoughts on this game are somewhere between a 3 and a 4 star game. It is by no means perfect, and the flaws it does have are pretty significant even though they do not ruin the game for me. Graphically it is adequate, that is all I will say.
