Summary: I was constantly having to adjust tactics as the main character would act wrong. The game has you develop all these wonderful combat moves, then puts you on narrow corridors or has the monsters block you off so you can never use them. You have this wonderful three part attack routine that is supposed to do much more damage than a normal attack, but by the time you get to the third part in the attack the enemy is in defense mode preventing you from doing the damage.
Summary: I've always preferred Western RPGs over the cartoonish Japanese style games, but so few on the market feature female protagonists or gender options for the many women gamers out there. That's why I decided to give Venetica a try, and was delighted to find my money well spent --- which is also a rarity these days! Venetica features well over 30 hours of challenging game play which can be difficult at times even on the easiest setting.

Summary: This game is underrated, most gaming sites gave the game a 6 or a 5..I really like this game even though it is very hard sometimes...mostly its those zuma warriors that hurt me alot...but other then that the game awesome.
Summary: This is a good video game, not what I would call great though. The graphics are not current generation quality and there some notable glitches that effect the game play quality. Overall if you can get the game for $20. or less it can be a good fill in, while waiting for the Great Video Games comming out this fall and winter.
Summary: Venetica is a colorful and charming Action/RPG from Germany. I didn't expect this game to make it stateside, but after many, many years, Venetica has been released in the North American market. It surely won't change any minds of the people who dislike this game genre, but for those that do like RPG titles and are in for something a little different than the norm, Venetica just might be the ticket!
Summary: I pretty much only play RPGs with the 1st three Fables probably being my favorites. My sister in-law gave Venetica to me and I wasn't expecting much from it. It's actually quite good!! I think it has a rich story line (which is important to me), I like how you have choices, it's pretty to look at (it does have a few glitches), lots of quests/side quests, interesting characters (i.e. the blacksmith, the bread lady in the market) and the voice acting is great!
Summary: I have played this game for about 12 hrs so far, and am surprised that it is pretty engrossing. Graphics and gameplay are what you could expect if there were a game to bridge the gap between Fable 1 and 2. There are some issues to consider however: Voice acting is bad at times and have some overlap on occasion (example while in a conversation with a NPC, your character may say "that looks good" about a merchants wares across the room while still in active conversation...
Summary: I love RPGs. Mainly Bethesda and BioWare offerings but have had some fun with JRPGs also, so when I heard about this title (a week before it came out) it was a no brainer for me. In defense I must say that there is no way this game should get slammed with a one star rating. It did not advertise itself, it did not claim to be anything, it offered itself up at a budget price and it is no where near as bad as some ratings may imply. Completely Fable-esque in its delivery.
Conclusion: I am definitely a fan of PC RPG's but don't own a PC good enough the play any of them. So it's good then, that the 360 is getting ports of the most promising ones. I know that graphically they dont look as good, they dont perform as well and that the controls are best suited to a mouse and keyboard. But this never stops me from enjoying them. Venetica is no exception. There's something about these games that just keeps me playing.
