Gamespot- Rise of Venice Review

GS:Whether I'm lining up on Black Friday or I'm scrounging through the stalls at a flea market, I have no problem putting in the hard work needed to get a good deal. But Rise of Venice pushed me a little farther than I would have liked. While this trading simulation about life as a 15th-century Venetian trader has loads of appeal when exploiting the base need that we all have to shop smartly, it is much more demanding than hanging out in a shopping center parking lot all night hoping to snag a cut-rate TV. Paltry in-game help and manual documentation make it tough to come to grips with the trading system in the early hours of play, which in turn makes it tough to appreciate the good things the game has to offer on the downward slope of its learning curve. This is a game that demands a lot up front but pays off down the road as long as you stay patient when it comes to online homework and in-game experimentation. (PC, Rise of Venice) 7/10
