Guardian - Venetica – Review

A striking feature of 2010 has been the way in which action-role-playing games (action-RPG) have enjoyed a major renaissance – efforts such as Mass Effect 2, Fable III and Fallout: New Vegas have dragged what was once seen as a quaint old genre firmly into the 21st century.

I'm glad this game's getting a little attention. As the article says, it's not a high-budget well-polished title - but that doesn't stop it from being enjoyable. Reminds me a more straightforward Fable style adventure (as in minus Molyneux's trademarks). And despite the female lead, it isn't overly sexualised - managing a Tomb Raider Legend style lead character.

I picked this game up today and so far I am liking it a lot. For the price it is very well done. I wish more people would give these small budget games a try.
