    this is with out a doubt one of the worst games to hit,it's right up there with "payback" and that was a load of garbage too.I'm truly sorry I purchased this game,it was not money well spent. The only thing that was half ass decent was the inviroment,the chacter movements were almost stick like,and she gets killed as easy as 1 2 3 . And your back to square one!

    A lonely, isolated gaming experience, easy to forget and move on with. One of the hardest things about the 'Velvet Assassin' experience is finding the will to finish it. The games efforts to engage audience with the haunting audio only makes the game more boring and unpleasant . Just as the stealth genre continues to fall into commercial hell... the release of Velvet Assassin onlyA lonely, isolated gaming experience, easy to forget and move on with.

    An ambitious experiment from beginning to end, this innovative wartime stealth effort just can't seem to rise above the commonplace level of mediocrity found in a sea of cookie-cutter World War II titles.

    Assassin features flawed stealth action elements that can ruin the gameplay when they go awry, and only point out the hit-or-miss nature of the mechanics when they work well.
  3. Velvet Assassin is very much an enjoyable game, it might not have the high production values of some of its peers, but in general offers a tense, thrilling, and engaging gameplay experience throughout.
