Velvet Assassin
Velvet Assassin: Kill Reel
Written By
View author's profile

With Velvet Assassin due out in Europe and the UK this week, SouthPeak so kindly provided us with the game's latest trailer to demonstrate how the game's protagonist, Violette, can kick some serious ass.

The trailer, titled, "Kill Reel," demonstrates the many, many, many stealth takedowns that you can perform in the game, but beware, the trailer's pretty grim.

might be a dumb question, but is this game done in black & white or is that just how they made this particular trailer? Looks very repetitive though.

The is nothing special. I do enjoy the atmosphere and graphics, but gameplay pretty much is Splinter Cell and Hitman combined. I like it but it is a rent game.

You must be blind. Just four posts before yours was another poster stating that it looked repetitious...which is exactly what I was getting at.

Definately a skip for me. Like #4 said, it looks extremely repetitive. It seems that there are three kill types: bashing the back of a head; knifing; choking with your gun. The only variety seems to be that you can stab in different areas of the body, and the odd evironment kill or two (gas mask removal, etc). This does not seem like a very inventive game.

this isn't so much a trailer as a compolation of people getting stabbed???? TBH the human sound effects sound terrible and god help her if she is faced with more than one enemy at a time.

Looks original, yet rubbish.

If they want to go down the stealth WW2 road, then do it properly and make HIDDEN & DANGEROUS 3!!!!!!!!!!!

First part of the video was so damn choppy I couldn't make out what the hell was going on. I like the idea of the game, but this isn't a very good way to present it. It makes the game look very repetitive. Based on this "trailer", I'll be passing on it

Its worth the rent guys, the only thing to do is A. Beat the storyline. B. beat the storyline under conditions C. Collect Collectibles.

Best thing that can be said about that trailer is that the lighting effects look to be well done... Not very impressive otherwise. Still, I do enjoy killing Nazis in WWII settings so maybe I will check this out. As a rental. And I have to agree with those saying the kills look repetitive: knock - stab - choke. We expect more!

i agree with what a lot of people are saying about it looking quite repetitive.
SouthPeak have probably shot themselves in the foot by making the trailer so long, would have been much more effective by only showing a few of the best kills.

Completely agree with you 41. Two minutes doesn't seem that long, but when it's two minutes of 5-10 second clips of pretty much the same thing, it gets old. I haven't played it so I can't judge the game itself, but that trailer doesn't make me WANT to play it either.

Can't wait for this one, expecting my copy soon. From what i've heard its going to be a pretty good game. By far not the best, but still good.

@14 I'd buy a game for the violence. Whats wrong with that? And thats coming from you who isn't buying a game because a friend said a review copy was bad! lol
