Tom Mc Shea sneaks around killing German soldiers in this video review for Velvet Assassin.
shouting the fuel tank on the back of a flamethrower soldier, i dub't there is a more satifying way to kill him.. ofc if you can incinerate him with his own flamethrower, but rarely you have that pleasiure ( or how it spells.. )
Seems like a fairly good stealth game. I'll probably end up getting it, I do enjoy stealth. Also, agree @ otaviogalileu, same here. I'm hoping to find this game on disc, though I haven't seen it in stores. I'm old school like that. ;)
That's odd, everywhere else I've heard either negative, or mediocre reviews on this game. Is it really as good as GameSpot says?
Some parts of the game, you are required to use your weapon to kill the enemy rather then sneaking behind them.
the reviews aren't good, but I'd reeally like to play this game... I don't know why, but I just have a thing for games with female protagonists! That's what made me buy Tomb Raider Underworld (a terrible mistake, a game that doesn't reach it's true potential even though it has such a great franchise) and Bayonetta (now my favorite game! haha)...
The style and features seem great. But, very unfortunately, it seems to have a whole bunch of technical problems. Not things that make it less playable, but things like, when you see her run into an enemy, the enemy just keeps doing its animation and she just keep doing her running animation, which shouldn't be something in a game of this generation. I also heard, when those barrels explode, they make a sound they added to the Fragmentation Grenade in the most popular mod for 'Joint Operations'. Did anyone notice that? It might of course be that that explosion was taken from another game, which isn't a good sign if they recycled it again years later in 2009. :S Or that explosion is so realistic it just sounds like that and it's recorded that way, but I doubt it.
Man do I love hot female characters that trully whoop @$$! She looks proportionally hot as well. No one likes a chick with big 'guns,' who moves like a russian gymnist. Not only is it impossible... but it just doesn't look right. To me atleast (LOL).
i hate this guy so much he has horrible reviews and he got this review totally wrong cuz this game sucks and no one should buy it because there are so many better games out there
Looks frustrating because of the few checkpoints and bad gunplay. It's like if you get spotted once without morphine then you,re basically dead.
Why can't they make a stealth game were the enemies don't arch over backwards when you kill them. I don't remember, was it Splinter Cell or Hitman or Thief 3, where also every time you killed them they fell backwards on top of legs like circus acrobats. Really spoils the immersion factor.
story waz good but tha ai was very dumb id say a 6.5 it was ok at the end of the game i was satisfied and had a good story i would recommend to rent and buy if yr a HUGE stealth fan
It looks that the AI is really stupid + i think the game is going to be so boring (I am going to wait for the new splinter cell game).
Yea the game feels unfinished in some aspects and at first I wasn't too fond of it. But once you get the hang of the mechanics of the game it gets to be really fun. It's definitely a solid rental.
@Emperor_Jimmu And you really think she was a babish emo chick who killed around 300 Nazi soldiers stealthily with a knife? Hmm? Hum? Seriously? Obviously there were some exaggerations there bud. And I doubt she lived through it injecting morphine and freezing time, knifing dudes in the crotch.
@Humorguy_basic Actually it got a 7.5 because that's exactly what it deserves. I'm just glad I rented it. Have you played this game? It's the same thing all the way through. It's pretty fun at times, but comes off a bit weak in the end. RENT
@ugadog: I agree. The comments on these video review pages get out of hand with far too many immature comments about either the game or the reviewer. And the people who leave intelligent comments end up with too many thumb downs.
I heard from Yahtzee that the Devs are Germans. Makes me wonder if there is a uncensering patch running around for the PC
