Conclusion: Concept: Slog through the most tedious and frustrating version of World War II you can imagine
Graphics: A high point in an otherwise lackluster title ? lighting and overall visual quality is right up there
Sound: Solid voiceover work for Violette, but she's pretty much the only character in the...
Excerpt: The Good : Outstanding narrative. Wicked atmospheric. Some original FPS game mechanics. The Bad : Checkpoints unevenly distributed, will probably require most players to go through some pieces of the game over and over again. The Ugly : Awful enemy AI.
Conclusion: I have heard that people have gotten a full 1000 on the game within 6 hours of playing it.

Excerpt: It isn’t every day that a game takes a slightly political standpoint, or tries to right a wrong or change an attitude towards a class or race of people but ultimately, despite being a relatively mediocre title, Velvet Assassin does just that.
Summary: Overall Velvet Assassin is a perfect example of what not to do when creating a stealth-action game. The title insults the source from which it gets its story ideas; the story there is plenty yet filled with holes and unentertaining.
Pros: Blowing up enemies with their own grenades.
Cons: Game gets so dark its hard to see sometimes, inconsistent all over
