READ THIS REVIEW, IT'S HONEST !!!
Velvet Assassin is a stealth game, set in World War 2, in which you take the role of a british female agent and fight against Nazi Germany in 12 missions.
It's a nice game,probably not a top notch stealth title,but good nonetheless.I would rate it somewhere between 7.5-8/10.
This game DOES NOT deserve the mixed reviews it has now.It has mixed reviews for 2 major reasons :
1) this game might not launch on start for everyone, but this issue can be solved by doing some damn research.I fixed this issue in less than 5 minutes.Most people are just too lazy or stupid to do a simple research.
2)This game relies a lot on stealth,you can't shoot your way through a mission because you die fast.Even if you are sneaky, you will still die quite often.That means the game is quite hard and you need to use stealth.The difficulty of the game is increased by the checkpoint system it uses.So,if you're a ♥♥♥♥♥ who thinks Assassin's Creed or Dishonored are stealth games...this game is not really for you.
PROS and CONS:
+ very good atmosphere: the enviroment is simply amazing, you get to see some well made surroundings(like a gestapo prison, or a ghetto from Poland).You will see dead civilians, you will hear different conversations between german soldiers(which might tickle your emotions a little) and so on..
+ good music: the music is tense,without being intrusive
+ good graphics: especially amazing lighting
+ stealth: the game has different ways in which you can kill the enemies, from killing them with the knife, guns, to shooting explosive barrels, barrels with toxic gas, triggering grenades on unsuspecting foes and so on.As I said before, you can't just shoot enemies and expect to finish the mission..you have to be sneaky, observe the patterns the enemies and be really careful,because mistakes are easily punished in this game.Also it uses other stealth elements like hiding bodies,disguises and broken glass to reveal your position when sneaking
+/- checkpoint system.I set this as "+/-" because some people don't like it, as it makes the game more difficult.However I find it more enjoyable than a quicksave/quickload system, because it makes the game more intense and makes you play carefully. Also, the checkpoints are placed pretty conveniently
+ it's a pretty cheap game
+ protagonist has a nice ♥♥♥ indeed
- the AI is stupid sometimes. However it didn't upset me much, because that's the case with most stealth games (remember splinter cell aka "lightbulb assassin")
- shooting sucks.It's fortunate however that you will stab people most of the time
- the game is linear for most of the time
+/- checkpoint system again( for me it's a + however)
Thanks for reading.
