    Velvet Assassin has a lot of potential, but has broken stealth mechanics and a paper-thin story.

    The Good: Beautiful visuals, nice WWII setting The Bad: Boring story, broken stealth mechanics, technical flaws I have really given this game some time and I tried to forgive it. I rented this o...

    Besides the horrific controls, repetitive scenarios, lack of saving, non-interactive world, it could be a good game...

    7.5 in GS is usually more than enough for me and assassin games with good silent kills are a bit of a hobby of mine, and I thought this game to be a bit of a Splinter Cell in World War 2. I was wro...

    a shameful game that had everything to do right!

    Rated on March 20, 2010 by victorcroft_

    Low, tiring, difficult. Thus resumes "Velvet Assassin", one game that you both expect and think that will be spectacular, and when you play, you could fall in disappointment. The gameplay of t...

    Atmospheric and tense 3rd person World War II film noir espionage stealth game, rich in detail and with a sepia tone.

    Welcome to the dark side ... infiltrate enemy installations, eliminate enemy guards with extreme prejudice and above all complete the mission. Call of Duty and Medal of Honour took you to the front li...

    Shame, was expecting this to be like 'Saboteur' - but it wasn't :(
