"The basic premise sounded so good: Set in World War II, players take on the role of Violette Summer, (based loosely on the British secret agent, Violette Szabo) an assassin and spy; she is tasked with bringing down the Third Reich by infiltrating enemy lines and eliminating enemy forces. Ultimately, what sounded like such a promising game on paper, fails on execution. If you're a big fan of stealth-based games and sexy protagonists then there are some redeeming qualities that will make Velvet Assassin worthwhile for you; otherwise save your money."
