To become death in Venetica is a calling, fulfilled by a man of flesh and blood – equipped with special supernatural skills in order to be able to carry out the duties of the office. A new death is selected regularly by “Corpus”, a secret council. This time however Corpus really makes a wrong decision: The “new” death, Victor, turns out to be a crazed necromancer who manages to turn himself into an overpowering undead with seedy tricks and dark rituals and thus attains almost unlimited power in addition to immortality. As it is strictly forbidden for the chosen death to devote himself to necromancy, the committee revokes Victor’s nomination immediately and declares a new death in his stead without delay.
The power-hungry Victor however does not want to relinquish his position again. He continues to practice the dark arts in order to gather numerous dark and dangerous creatures and tainted souls from the underworld around him. He thus succeeds in eliminating the newly designated death and takes over his power for his own purposes. The effects on the world’s balance are calamitous and – should Victor be able to keep himself in power – its dark consequences are irreversible. Only a person who has the same mighty powers as Victor can prevent his prevailing and vent him his deserved punishment.
Scarlett, the daughter of the real death does not know anything about her ancestry and the hidden talents which slumber within her. She is immersed suddenly in this story due to the brutal attack on her home village and the tragic loss of Benedict, the love of her life. It is a story which she now begins to write herself, a story during the course of which she unleashes her capabilities, a story in which she tries to save Benedict from the world of the dead and a story in which she must protect the world of the living from the dark threat posed by Victor and his henchmen.
While not perfect, this game is highly underrated as a great RPG on the PC. The graphics are very good and the story line very interesting most of the time, the thing that hurts it the most is that sometimes the controls just seem a little too clumsy for my taste. It isn't a game breaker by any means, but it is noticeable enough to deduct a star from the rating sadly. It is still worth every penny and is a game I would easily recommend to anyone.
Venetica is an action RPG et in Venice in the time of renaissance, Scarlet is looking for her boyfriend's killers and for answers on why he had to die, so the story isn't that special and it's been done before,the graphics are a bit dated but they do the job, animations are okay but they can a be clunky at times, combat is your basic hack n slash with few magical abilities , enemies can block your attacks quite often but before they do that they die quickly which is a bit sad especially if you're looking for some challenge. your quests aren't that great either , fetch X and kill Y and that is it , you get a skill tree that you can level up , but you need NPCs to teach you each single skill and each single tier which makes it super annoying, I really wanted to like this game , but you really can't like someone or in this case something that doesn't like you back.
