As with most modern games, Venetica has a collection of "Awards", "Achievements" (Xbox 360) or "Trophies" (PlayStation 3), each of which can be earned by completing certain requirements within the game.
About Achievements Edit
Achievements (Trophies) are categorized as Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum, according to degree of difficulty.
Secret or Hidden Achievements (Trophies) are those Achievements whose name and conditions are not revealed until they have been earned. In other words, the player is expected to earn the award without specifically knowing what the goal is trying. These have been marked as "(Hidden)" on the list below, but the title and conditions are also shown (which some might consider a "spoiler".)
Players can display and share their collection of achievements to others through the Xbox Live or PlayStation Network, if desired.
Missable Achievements Edit
Many of Venetica's Achievements (Trophies) are "unmissable": the player will complete the Achievement as part of the normal completion of the game. Others, while not absolutely required, will be earned by most players in a normal play-through. A few require Scarlett to go out of her way to complete.
Three of Venetica's Achievements (Trophies) are "missable": the player can miss the chance to earn the Achievement, and have to repeat play to obtain it. Two events in Venetica are notable watersheds: once Scarlett completes the Steward's Trust quest, she will no longer be able to deal with her Guild; she must have completed all guild-specific quests before then. Finally, once Scarlett abolishes the curse protecting the Doge's Palace Throne Room, the final conflict with Victor will begin; there's no going back, so she must have completed all Quests and Achievements she want to before then.
Multiple Play-Through Required Edit
To be awarded all the Achievements for Venetica, more than one play-through is required. There is a separate achievement for completing the game the "honorable way" and "villainous way", as well as separate endings, and whether Scarlett is "honorable" or "villainous" depends on dozens of small moral choices she will be making throughout the game. (See The Good, the Bad, and the Beautiful.)
Six Achievements are specific to which of the Guilds Scarlett joins. Since she can only join one guild (per play-through), substantial separate play is required to earn Achievements for all three guilds. (Save the game before choosing which guilt to join, then reload that saved game and join a different guild; it's only necessary to play as far as completing the last of the Guild-specific Quests to earn the necessary Achievement.
Venetica Achievement List Edit
Below is a list of all Venetica's Trophies (Achievements), along with their official description and rating (bronze, silver, gold, platinum.) That is taken from the US English version of the game itself (PlayStation3 2009 version.) Additional notes, suggestions and tips are from various authors, not from the game itself.
