Hardcore Gamer Writes "Venba manages to serve up a captivating story about culture, motherhood, immigrant life and more, spiced up with likeable characters."
VGChartz's Lee Mehr: "In the end, Venba is a special case of over-relying on flavorful spices – music, art design, etc. – to compensate for paltry servings. Which is a shame to say because so much modern media likes to overindulge us with content slop for its own sake. But this complaint extends beyond a consumerist mindset for me; here, it's more about how undercooking limits the impact of otherwise well-meaning themes while exacerbating what some may consider design naan-issues. Since the overarching immigrant tale only has time for familiar tropes, it winds up feeling – ironically – a touch too stale when the credits roll. An easy way to curry favor with any chef is loudly hankering for seconds; in Visai Games' case, I'm still left pleading for firsts."
Games Asylum: "It has been said that Xbox Game Pass is the Netflix of gaming. That certainly rings true with Venba – also available on PC, PS4, and Switch – with this being a short narrative-driven affair with a runtime of a typical movie. It even resembles a contemporary animated Netflix film, featuring a bold and heavily stylised cartoony aesthetic."
