As far as I'm concerned Velvet Assassin is a VERY tense and suspensful stealth game that will defintaely keep anyone playing on their toes. There is fun to be had here no doubt about it. If you were interested in it before at the very least give it a rent and form YOUR OWN opinion about it and not go by SOMEONE ELSE'S review/opinion. Graphics- Everything in Velvet Assassin looks good, especially the lighting/shadow effects, which I have to say look BEAUTIFUL. Levels and character models have really nice detail not to mention that the world it creates looks and feels very gritty and desolate (which definately contributes greatly to the game). Is it the best looking game on 360? No, but it is a damn fine looking game without a doubt. Controls- Very easy to get used to. Move with the joystick, X is your morphine shot, A is to pick up items/climb/stealth kill, RB is to go stealth mode, and LB is your flashlight. Doesnt get more complicated then that. Sound/Music- Voice acting in this game is very good, especially Violet. Music really stands out on each level, very dark and brooding which really gets you pretty tense when stalking your prey and going in for the kill. Gameplay- Immenselly satisfiying. Yes the A.I could be boneheaded at sometimes (but in what game it isnt at times?)but for the most part I had a great time stealth killing all the germans. The kill animations are pretty brutal too with Viloet stabbing them in the ear, slitting their throat, stabbing them in their hearts, stabbing them in their necks, etc. Again, there are alot of cool and brutal stealth kills. Length- Velvet Assassin will take a good 10-15 hours to complete, and in this day an age with how short many games are thats nothing to sneeze at. Achievements- Pretty challenging. There are X amount of stealth kill achievements, collectable achievements, doing specific goals in certain levels achievements, and a pretty crazy achievement to complete the game in under 5 hours. Its definately a doable 1000 but be aware that you'll have to put in a decent amount of time to reach the 1000. Im glad I gave Velvet Assassin a shot. Dont go by someone else's opinion! You can MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND on liking a game or not. If you were interested in it before definately give it a shot.
