Velvet Assassin


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....

It's disappointing, really. VA is a great story idea, the narrative of which really succeeds, but the actual gameplay itself is a letdown. And it's not really as through the entire game fails on all cylinders. The level design is good, the artwork is...

Velvet Assassin


Morphine, lingerie and stealth; the ingredients of success. The two genres represented in Velvet Assassin are two of the most prominent in gaming. There are an abundance of titles set...

Great atmosphere ; Old-school stealth action ; Rewarding gameplay

AI is lacking ; Gunplay is horrendous ; Can be frustrating

Velvet Assassin


Velvet Assassin is an attempt to bring back the old school style of stealth games some people may remember, before Splinter Cell and Metal Gear Solid took the genre by storm. And while it does manage to keep the basic gameplay from an earlier time...

Velvet Assassin Xbox 360 Review


Velvet Assassin takes you on a wonderfully written journey through a world without meaning, but this version of World War II is extremely confusing to play. The action game play feels as dated as the World War II story line and the AI at times makes...

Velvet Assassin - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games


It's a strange world, the way two elements can come together from their needless existences and create something beautiful together - when hydrogen met oxygen, when francium met water and when Kiefer Sutherland met the role of Jack Bauer. For every...

Velvet Assassin


I'm all for sneaking around in the shadows, coming up against an unsuspecting enemy and jumping them from behind, taking them out permanently then dragging their lifeless body into the shadows before getting caught. Well, virtually anyway. In...

Good story ; Solid sneaking about

Unforgiving enemies when found ; Save points seem arbitrary ; Can't pick up any old weapon ; Way too linear

For fans of the stealth/action genre only

Velvet Assassin


War is a story of violence, despair, and millions of atrocities, and Velvet Assassin seeks to bring that atmosphere to a video game in a way very few others ever have. Inspired by the life of British agent Violette Szabo, Velvet Assassin casts players...

Velvet Assassin shows gamers the horrors of war as few other games have, with stealth action that captures the feeling of a predator stalking human prey. Unfortunately, clunky shooting controls and dumb AI break the immersion.

Velvet Assassin


Velvet Assassin is an odd title. It's a run-of-the-mill stealth title that doesn't do much we haven't seen before, and has very little payoff. By all means, I should hate it. Still, I found myself helplessly coming back to the drab world created by...

There's no way around it - Morphine mode is friggin' weird, but if you can't get enough of rose petals and European girls in their underwear stabbing people in the face - the trainer at comes with a cheat to instantly get 10 morphine....

Velvet Assassin


Throughout the history of video games, World War II has been fought, and won a seemingly countless number of times. Each of the perspectives of war have been that of a soldier scrounging for life in the trenches, or storming Normandy on D-Day, or...

If you're a glutton for punishment, go ahead and get this game.

Velvet Assassin


When Velvet Assassin was first shown it looked like a pretty decent game. As time went by the game was forgotten. New and better games were released, most of which are now going to see sequels. Instead of scrapping the game or starting over Velvet...

Velvet Assassin could have been so much better if the game had more concentration on it. It does try something new with the stealth story aspect. World War II is always seen in first person shooters so it was nice to see that developers can do...

Product Specifications

Through third-person gameplay, sneak up on enemies and pull the pins from their belted grenades. Infiltrate a Gestapo prison and slip cyanide to your own men before the Germans make them talk. Slink through the shadows to finish off your unsuspecting enemies with a single, silent move. Through Violette's fever dreams, experience what she experienced. Walk where she walked. And kill those she killed.
