ok so the game is pretty well polished and has a pretty good story line but is glithy at sometimes. now remeber people THIS IS A STEALTH GAME not really a shooter.
i do like the idea of upgrading your atrabutes like stealth, strength, and morphine (makes you go into a kindof dream state that freezes time).
this game can be hard at times but you have to think before you really do anything in this game.
ok i want to know why you cant pick up enemy weapons because what happenes if you are seen and you have no ammo in your pistol (witch on has 7-16 shots) are just supposed to run then die or just sit there and let them kill you. (either way you lose)
This game could've been alot better than it is right now.
I'd suggest anybody interested only rent this game and only if . After the first couple of levels you realize that you'll be dieing left and right until you figure out the one right sequence to clear the guards in the room. The fact that you will die a lot is about the only reason you won't finish this game in one or two evenings.
You only have 7 bullets per level unless you are lucky enough to find some ammo in the level. Leaving you only one route to complete the game most of the time . Sneak and get the instant kill from behind. The main thing that annoyed me is that for a stealth game you are pretty much forced to kill the majority of the enemies to complete the level. While is MGS games you could slip by without killing a single person or setting off alarms if you were patient enough.
The only two things that make this game interesting is the story and the scenery but the lousy game play and and glitches that happen in certain areas and situations is enough to rob most of the fun out of the game.
Velvet Assassin is almost a female version of Hitman. If you're not a fan of moving slowly through levels and sneaking around this isn't the game for you. Game isn't as hard as some people have said it is but it will have it moments where you are tested. Only thing hard would have to be it's time consuming if you're looking to get all the achievements. You'll need to play the game at least 2 times. I would rate it a 5 out of 10 difficulty. Descent story and gameplay. Only problem I came across was you need to start the game from the Dashboard and not from just turning on the power. I wouldn't get any cutscenes, couldn't use the morphine at times, or enemys wouldn't appear. It did help however when close to death the enemy would all point their guns in the air and was able to walk behind them. None of these problems occur from the dashboard so I would recommend playing this game. Wasn't too sure about playing this game at first but glad I got it.
