Velvet Assassin

Strategy Informer
6 October 2011
  • Conclusion: Velvet Assassin could have been amazing. The story is suitably dark and gritty to support such a game, however it is the gameplay itself that lets it down a tad. Still, this isn’t Assassin’s Creed level disappointing, and provided you can stand the various faults and flaw of the game you should have...

Dungeons & Dragons Online: Eberron Unlimited

Hooked Gamers

  • Conclusion: While most of the basic Dungeons & Dragons races and classes are represented, others – drow, monks, and favored souls to name a few – need to be unlocked in the DDO store using Turbine Points.

  • Excerpt: Before I get too far ahead of myself, let me get rolling by saying that VA is a stealth game, in many ways like the Splinter Cell series of which I am a big fan. It uses a third person camera like SC.

  • Summary: Velvet Assassin is a difficult game to score. It gets a lot of things right that most games routinely miss the mark on, but then turns around and makes mistakes with certain aspects that should have been gimmes.

Velvet Assassin Review (PC)

OCModShop
25 May 2009
  • Summary: All in all, the game can be very addicting and completely engrossing. I played for hours before the significant other yelled at me to get off the computer and come eat dinner. The detail in the game is stunning, with leaves falling and blowing in the wind while outside, and dust floating through the...

Velvet Assassin

AV Club
11 May 2009
  • Conclusion: Bugs, shortcuts, and the game’s habit of repeating the same clever trick too many times hold back an otherwise solid stealther.
  • Pros: Velvet Assassin
  • Cons: You have to sit through conversations before the guards separate and make themselves vulnerable. The Nazis are insufferably cultured, and crouching in the shadows while they lecture you on art history proves a true test of patience.

Velvet Assassin

ActionTrip
7 May 2009
  • Conclusion: The simple truth is that Velvet Assassin is a mediocre game that made its way onto the market earlier than it should have. Perhaps if Replay Studios invested more time into making the spy elements more interesting and varied, Velvet Assassin would've been something worth your attention.
  • Pros: A dark tale that has its moments, treat this as a sneaker and you'll get some entertainment;
  • Cons: Gets dull when you've assassinated 40 enemies the same way, short, lousy shooting sequences, unrewarding missions and one of the most abrupt and generally disappointing endings of all time.

  • Conclusion: The desolate atmosphere and empathetic look at your enemies make Velvet Assassin a powerful war game. It's bleak and grim, making the horrors of war come to life in disturbing fashion.
  • Pros: Tense atmosphere and moody music, Satisfying stealth combat, Believable characters.
  • Cons: Lousy gunplay, Stupid enemies.
