Summary: In a nutshell this game has fallen squarely into the AVERAGE category. It has plenty of shining moments, and just as many deplorable moments. It can best be described as a Legend of Zelda knock-off; An unlikely hero acquires a weapon and special powers connected with her ancestry/heritage/fate, and sets out to explore an open world, growing her powers and equipment to battle evil. The problem being it feels generally unfinished in every aspect.
Summary: This is the kind of rpg that I really like, it definitely has a good story as well as a female lead. Game makers sometimes forget that there are female players and sometimes we like to be the hero. I would recommend this game to the female rpg gamer's.
Some good things going for this game, but technical issues get in the way

Summary: Since I always find the Pro/Con bulleted points in reviews the most insightful parts, I'll list mine first. If you'd like the expanded version you can read on after. Game: Venetica Genre: Action-RPG Platform reviewed: PS3 Pros: - Stunning and breathtaking environments. Absolutely beautiful - brimming with expansive, colorful and well-lit vistas.
Summary: I enjoyed my time with this game but clearly it is a budget title and as such, do not buy this game hoping for blockbuster writing or voice acting. The graphics are ok at best. The premis is interesting as you play the daughter of the Grim Reaper, however this is never really expanded upon and you simply go about tracking down the enemey to wipe him out. Still, the game has some decent boss battles and leveling up grants you some new powers to try as you go.
Summary: Venetica is rather inexplicable. A mystery wrapped in an enigma. From the start, I was left optimistic about some possibilities yet I was somehow already annoyed. Although worries like this usually sort themselves out pretty early on-- This can be for the better (as in Nier), or the worse (as in Last Rebellion)-- but the sensation never actually resolved itself. It has its moments of excitement, but I found myself grumbling at my TV just as often.
Summary: This game has got to be the most boring game I have ever played. I have been playing this game for 15 hours which is more than enough time to decide if you like it or not. The graphics are not the best for the ps3 but that isn't the start of it. The story mode isn't interesting at all, you are a female lead character who's lover was killed,now she's on a revenge kick, blah,blah,blah.
Conclusion: I think it's story is ok but it has a lot of bugs and most of the time when there speaking it skips and she sometimes walks through objects which is not good also the graphic is very poor for a ps3 game it's more like tomb raider ps2 graphics.
Excerpt: Venetica es un juego de ciencia ficción. Su historia tiene lugar en el que la muerte sigue las instrucciones de un grupo que se llama Corpus y en cada generación nombran al sucesor de la Muerte pero son incapaces de parar a un nigromante ( que es inmortal) que quiere destruir todo el mundo. Solo podrá pararlo Scarlett, que es la hija de la muerte, por tanto tiene que aprender para salvar a su padre y al mundo de él.
Excerpt: В общем и целом, игра заслуживает своих денег. Мне многое понравилось в этой игре, хотя в сиквеле хотелось бы увидеть кучу улучшений.
Pros: Игра амбициозна и здесь есть много различных интересных мест. Вообще, она во многом копирует Fable. Вы учите физические и ментальные умения по мере похождения, причем 90% вам не понадобятся, но с их помощью можно развить свой собственный стиль игры. В игре много квестов и локаций для исследования, хотя подземелий и пещер могло быть и побольше. Неплохой сюжет, хотя и частенько предсказуемый.
Cons: Графика не очень, ну примерно на уровне чего-то среднего, между Fable 1 и 2. Озвучивание персонажей не слишком качественное. В диалогах иногда игра подглючивает - вроде бы все уже сказали, но режим разговора продолжается.
