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.

Venetica - Gold Edition reviews and comments

Translated by

Venetica Because Scarlett is enjoying herself with Your Loved One at a Village Festival, just at this Moment gloomy Assassins are falling over the Mountain Village and its Inhabitants. While Benedict, the young Acquaintance of Scarlett's, lets His Life during the Raid, Scarlett, our Heroine survives for the next 15-20 Hours of Play. But all too quickly luck leaves us, and sneaky Village Gauns bring us insidiously around the Corner. As Luck would have it, however, Scarlett is the clandestine daughter of Death, and so from now on we hover between Life and Death, always in search of the insidious Murderers Of Benedicts. So we find out that behind all this is the wicked Victor, who, with the Help of a Book from the Shadow World, strives for Immortality and a Reorganization of the World we know. In Search of Answers and the Cronies Of Victor, we sneak and fight our way through the Alleys and Catacombs of Venice, including a Detour to Africa. The great Fascination here draws Venetica from the exciting Main Story, which begins extremely strongly, perhaps somewhat diminishes at the end, but basically captivates to the grand Finale and knows how to surprise with one turn or another, as well as from the charismatic, cliché-freed Main Heroine Scarlett. The Conversations can be directed in different Directions, so one can often answer in an ironic Way, for Example, or let the Words be influenced by his Hatred. In the Course of the Main Plot, we meet many different Inhabitants of Venice, who provide us with all kinds of Side tasks. These are consistently varied and usually also interesting told. Every now and then there's also a few quirky Delicacies, "hi former Prison Guards." The Look is harmonious and Venice very beautifully depicted. Graphically, of course, it's a 2009 game and logically can't keep up with today's Titles. The Soundtrack very often fits the respective Scenery without staying particularly in the ear. Playfully, there are different Types Of Opponents that are sensitive to our Arsenal Of weapons in different Ways. So it is often not a good Idea to attack from the front, as the Force of our Stroke may then be defused by the Shield. Dodging and frequent Changes in Position Often work wonders. The Boss fights are multi-phase, and every now and then you have to think around the Corner, or involve the Surroundings in order to leave the Situation as The winner. The Skillsystem is pleasantly simple, although the Expansion of Skillwork only annoys a bit in certain People. In the End, Venetica entertained me very well from Start to finish, it was a lot of Fun walking around Venice with Scarlett, climbing around on the Rooftops and swimming in the Canals. I would have no objection to a second Part in a graphically modern Guise, and this time I wouldn't wait 7 Years either. :-) + Scarlett (great, interesting Heroine) + consistently interesting Main story + many varied side Tasks-Skilles only possible at certain NPC nous s-long Walkways, fast travel Points not from the Beginning, And then not in all Neighborhoods
