Rated 10 out of 10
by Jack92 Its a really good game once you get into it.
Its a really good game for 10 dollars. The story is alright and gameplay is pretty simple. I passed this game in 30 hours. I'm playing my second run to get some achievements I missed the first time. It also has pretty easy achievements.
Rated 8 out of 10 by tlee great budget rpg
I love western rpgs and own just about every one of them on my 360. Tes 4 & 5, fallout 3 & nv, divinity 2, dragon age 1&2, koa: reckoning, dark souls, two worlds 2, mass effect 1,2,&3, fable 1,2,&3, arcania: gothic 4, and a couple others i am forgetting. Although its not as good as some of the games i mentioned, i still had a good time here. Venetica is a mix between fable and two worlds 2. The graphics are not very good, but dont let that stop you. It has a very fable-esque style in how it looks and i really enjoyed it. The controls are very basic. A button to attack, one to interact, another to roll, and others for blocking or potions. Do get this as long as you are not expexcting skyrim or dragon age. Accept it as a fairly simple (not as simple as fable) rpg with some fun gameplay. Good for the price.

The graphics on this game remind me of Fable. It has had a staggered release across consoles and regions, allowing other parts of the world to post some early reviews. They've been fair so far, not out of this world. At a bargain price however the reviews sound great, and I'm a fan of the look of the game, its highly stylized. The combat appears fast paced, very action heavy, much like Fable. Magic will be involved, as well as basic lock picking, all the basics of an RPG. From what I've read the game is linear at first, then opens up into a more exploration, side quest friendly experience. I'll have to check it out in January!

I thought this would be a great game to pass the time till dragon age 2 came out. I was hopeful at first playing it. Then the game kicked in and after restarting the game 6 times up to 4 hours into the game it got old quick. It is full of glitches. The npc in the game that you need to talk to to proceed the story line will randomly disappear if you save and quit near them. After 6 times of this happing well into the game im done with it. do not buy unless your really patient
Rated 9 out of 10 by Ziner87 Worth It.
This game is not as bad as it seems most are saying. There is a lack in graphics, but that is not what makes a game in my opinion. Its game play and story. Which this game seem to have both. If your one that always wants the next big games so you can play the newest thing , then why do you truly play? This game has come out at a lower retail price even . This is worthy in my opinion of the money its an entertaining rpg. If you just judge a game on graphics then your missing out really. just enjoy it.
Rated 8 out of 10 by gamesrmylife Let this game be it's own unique thing.
I'm tired of reading where everyone compares this game to Fable. This was a PC game to begin with, that was later decided to port to consoles. Since consoles still have the edge over most computer games now, I used that to rate the graphics by. They are good for a PC title, except the shadows under the trees were blurry. You do have to level up a little in this game, because you need to have a moonblade to defeat the undead creatures. You cannot just run in and fight everything you see. When you first find the moonblade, it is broken. You have to find a moonstone and a smithy to fix it. It is also a german made game, that sold well over there. We as americans just like to play different things, I guess. I'm not usually a gamer that jumps on the bandwagon and only plays Call of duty, Oblivion, and Halo. I like to give several unique games a chance. Every game is going to have a few glitches, and a few things that you wish were different. If you have to, wait for the price to be lowered to a budget price. I think this game should get a chance to be tried. It is at least worth $20. I don't think most people will try this anyway, because hardly anyone has even heard of it. When I went to pre-order it, the Gamestop staff had to ask me 3 times what I was trying to order. I don't usually go by reviews anyways. I have liked several games that in the past have only gotten a 3-5 rating. Red Ninja: End of Honor, Death by degrees, Alias, Bulletwitch. At the end of the day, it really just depends on what you like to play.
Rated 3 out of 10 by mulligator Yikes.......not worth the $, not even close
I bought Venetica NEW at full price. That was a massive mistake. I got it because I thought it would be fun to have a game where there was a female heroine. The graphics are terrible. they're better than N64 graphic but not by a whole lot. The storyline is interesting but the camera angles make it difficult in some arieas. Long story short, I played it for 2 hours to try and give it a chance and wish I hadn't even bothered. Buy at your own risk
Rated 1 out of 10 by OpsDarth Not a RPG
I love RPGs, the Arena series (Oblivion) being the best. This game is NOT like Fable, more like a lesser version of Two Worlds. It was playable until the feeble attempt at "Boss" creature. Why or why must they make these larger then life opponents? I guess to cover up that they have no imagination. Simple put if you like fighting "Bosses" you might like this. The rest of us want Real RPGs like Oblivion or Fallout...
Rated 7 out of 10 by GASSA Give Venetica A Chance
Now I wasn't too excited for this game when I first purchased it and wasn't too excited at the beginning of my play through, but it took a turn. This game gives you the time to get to know each villager as if you were really living that life. Not only that but the decisions you make determine the outcome and that sort of twist is exciting. The graphics may have looked WAY out of date but they could have been much worse.
Rated 1 out of 10 by pharoah can you say suck on here?
may be ok for little kids, its kinda like a dragons age but with barbie instead. horrible game play standard lame plot. no auto save which i found out after wasting 30 or so minutes going thru the first bit of the village. *lame* went out of the village to be killed and they expected me to pull my teeth out again and start from the beginning? it will never be touched again. i say again... suck.
