IGN: Venetica Review

If you don’t expect much from it, you’ll have a pretty good time with Venetica. However, without the patience to figure out quests and gameplay elements on your own, you’ll end up incredibly frustrated. If you don’t need a game to hold your hand, or mind that it’s not up to snuff in the graphics or combat departments, you’ll find that questing around Venice is a good time.

Will check other reviews before i write this off, but i wasn't expecting much from this game anyway.

Game still looks good, if you ask me.

"you’ll find that questing around Venice is a good time."

It only retails for $39.99 what do people expect? It a enjoyable game, screw the reviews, they don't take the price into consideration, which is rather stupid.

The price should not be considered. A game should be reviewed on it's merits, not it's price.

A crap game for $1 is still a crap game. A great game for $100 is still a great game. Besides, prices generally fall after a few months, so factoring the price into a review would eventually become a moot point.

It all comes down to the amount of money spent and what you get. This game is decent and for the cost, it is worth playing. I sure hope you don't buy all your games based on reviews. If so, you have missed out on some decent, fun games!

Same principle goes for downloadable games. What about XBL or PSN you rank those on the same scale you would for a $60 title? Doubt it.

Im still givin this a go, looks good enough for me. Not many action rpgs coming out, this and 2 worlds 2 will tide me over till elder scrolls 5.

This game has been on my radar for quite a while. Even from this low scoring review it sounds pretty good. Once it drops under $30 I'll give it a shot.

The game is pretty well done considering the budget the game had. The gameplay is really fun graphics are not the best but I can easily overlook that if it is enjoyable to play and it is.
