Venetica review (X360)

HonestGamers
14 October 2015
  • Excerpt: If the MST3K guys decided to spoof hilariously bad video games instead of movies fitting the same description, they would love Venetica for making their jobs easier. Buried within the title's core is a decent western RPG, but the numerous blunders that gather around it are difficult to ignore.

Venetica (EU Ver)

True achievements
4 August 2011
  • Conclusion: As briefly noted before, a second playthrough is required due to evil/good tendencies, but breezes past once you know how to quickly get through the main quest line. So overall - as a game, Venetica offers more than enough to those wanting a solid action rpg in the vein of Fable - but as a complete...

  • Excerpt: As Death's daughter, you fight the merciless forces of the undead...and their host of game-killing bugs.
  • Pros: A gorgeously rendered Venice to explore; simple but fun combo system; plenty of side-quests.

Expert Review

Video Game talk
14 January 2011
  • Excerpt: 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 well as launch with a high production value and...

Now with 90% Less Venice

GameCritics.com
22 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Venetica is the sort of game that ought to make a potential buyer feel pretty skeptical. As a modestly-priced RPG from a small developer that hasn't made such games before, one might reasonably expect a bug-ridden, barely playable mess. In that respect, as in many others, Venetica would disappoint.
  • Pros: Dying from a coordinated attack by three weakened enemies, then resurrecting in just the right spot to slaughter them all within a few seconds.
  • Cons: Fighting the final battle with the camera whipping around like crazy.

Venetica (Xbox 360)

16 September 2010
  • Excerpt: On the rare occasions that I sit down and play an RPG, I usually don’t expect that much. I’m an outsider in the RPG scene, and as such tend to view them through a less sophisticated lens.
  • Pros: I'm sure there's one around here somewhere...
  • Cons: Ugly graphics, repetitive combat, nearly illegible writing, disinterested characters

Venetica

  • Conclusion: The most truly frustrating aspect of it all is that it could almost have been a cute action-based RPG worth playing through. There's so much it attempts to do that you only see in much larger, more complex games, that it would have made for a welcome 'lite' adventure.

Ready Up
29 November 2010
  • Summary: Despite a promising concept the faults are glaring and unforgivable: sub-standard PS2 graphics, dodgy controls, combat that lacks any kind of nuance and a story that seems to have been dredged from the primordial slime of the RPG genre. Venetica is a crime against video games.
