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 involving gameplay. Deck 13 tried to do that with their release of Venetica, a RPG set in 17th century Italy that follows a depressing narrative around an orphan named Scarlett.

  • Excerpt: Like unique settings and imaginative plots? Then you’ll appreciate the backbone of this light RPG. Venetica casts you as Death’s daughter, who, after being orphaned and having her simpering boyfriend die, finds that she has the power to take on a bunch of undead goons who are stinking up Venice.
  • Pros: + Occasionally pretty; unique setting with an initially interesting plot.
  • Cons: - Chuggy game engine that makes gorgeous vistas a chore to navigate., - Overly simplistic combat that doesn’t evolve much; awful voice-acting., ? Is the game name a plus or a minus? We can’t decide.

Venetica (Xbox 360)

  • 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. So long as I can understand the basics of the story and muddle my way through the combat, I’ll say my time was well spent. Yet when I play Venetica—a basic action RPG with a vaguely interesting premise—I can’t help but feel so…bad.
  • Pros: I'm sure there's one around here somewhere...
  • Cons: Ugly graphics, repetitive combat, nearly illegible writing, disinterested characters

  • 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. Having spent two hours in a mine following directions that lead to a door that can’t be opened, however, we have to question if Venetica was ever meant to be played outside the team that created it.

  • Conclusion: Als ich nach 23 Minuten durch eine Wand gerutscht und dem Leiter-Bug zum Opfer gefallen bin, sank die Begeisterung für das Spiel. Die Steuerung mit der Tastatur und Maus tat ihr übriges. Doch nach einem Wechsel auf den Controller und der Installation des ersten Patches hat mich das Spiel verzaubert. Zwar gab es immer noch einige technische Kleinigkeiten, die so nicht hätten sein sollen, aber die störten nicht mehr.

  • Conclusion: En définitive, Venetica est un sympathique jeu de rôle qu'il ne faut surtout pas juger sur ses seuls aspects visuel, sonore et technique. Si le titre se révèle graphiquement moyen, techniquement dépassé et parfois indigeste sur le plan sonore, le gameplay rattrape assurément le tout, articulé autour d'une histoire originale et un système de combats perfectible mais assez jouissif à prendre en main.
  • Pros: Les combats en temps réels, Le nombre et la variété des missions, Scarlett, vraiment mignonne
  • Cons: La pauvreté des graphismes, De multiples bugs d'affichage, La réalisation sonore
