Velvet Assassin Underhyped

Andrew Weymes of The Nightly Gamer: "Flying in under the radar later on this month or early next is a very interesting looking stealth shooter by the name of Velvet Assassin. Playstation 3 fans are going to left out in the cold for this one as it is exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PC. It's clear that Microsoft is not going to simply fade away into the shadows because the Playstation 3 has seen the release of some amazing exclusives in both 2008 and 2009. This years E3 is likely to have a few surprises from all sides of the console war but until then, Xbox 360 loyalists should be looking forward to the very stylish looking Velvet Assassin."

I wonder if this will be another Dead Space deal, where it starts off sounding pretty good and then it turns out to be a really great game. Hopefully it turns out to be great, my xbox 360 hasn't gotten much use lately...

MrWeymes3575d ago

Yes, Dead Space was such a surprise to me. I didn't expect much. In fact, I thought it was going to be the game that simply made the wait for Resident Evil 5 more bearable but it ended up being the better of the two games in my opinion.

Velvet Assassin is likely to be my next Xbox 360 review. It looks pretty good to me, although it did seem to have some somewhat dated gameplay. The stealth kills look awesome.

From the gameplay videos I have seems of far the game seems to be full of repetitive gameplay and stupid AI.

MrWeymes3575d ago (Edited 3575d ago )

Yeah, the gameplay looked a little dated to me as well. The stealth kills, art style and story line are intriguing, though. I wonder about how the soundtrack will turn out as well. I like the music video. If Hollywood Undead were more prevelant on the soundtrack, that would be great.

I don't think it'll be AAA stuff but I do think it'll be worth playing.

Do you remember the days you could enjoy non AAA games almost as much and not have to compare graphics, AI or whatever and just enjoy the gameplay and concept? I'm hoping this title does well as it has an interesting concept.

But then so did Legendary and that one was fun in bits and would have done well to release at a budget price.

Johandevries3575d ago

I'm really looking out for this one.
But when is it finally going to release?

MrWeymes3575d ago

Late this month or early May.

If this was a PS3 exclusive, it would be hyped to death.
PS3 fans hype anything exclusive to their system, even updates get the same treatment!

"Playstation 3 fans are going to left out in the cold for this one as it is exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PC"

Now these are the type of statements that do nothing for the game but hurt it. If it's not coming to PS3 then why bring up PS3 lol? I'm waiting for some exclusive news at E3 and refuse to get into hype mode until MS willing show there hand. The real news will be at E3 but I do hope this game turns out well.

TheRealSpy3575d ago

that's exactly what i was going to say. it's bad enough we have fanboys crying all day and night about which system is such trash it's not worth owning, but now the news sites are taking part in the flame war?

can an article ever just be about the game?

lowcarb3575d ago

Well to be honest I don't think things will change anytime soon. The real part of the problem is the internet, and the fact that we are all able to express our opinions with no real guidelines. If there were ever a site for gamers that gained popularity for news, and banning ip addresses of flamers I would hop on. N4G could be the coolest site ever but unfortunately they let anybody move in without a prior credit check.

Seems like Assassin's Creed II's hype will completely engulf this game.

MrWeymes3575d ago

I'm somewhat looking forward to Assassins Creed 2, but I hope it makes a lot of changes over the original. I liked the original but I think it is highly over rated. If I were to have reviewed Assassins Creed, I probably would have given it a 7.0 - 8.0 at the most.

Velvet Assassin has a unique art style and a fine concept so I am hoping that it is at least above average. Based on the success of Assassins Creed, I assume that Assassins Creed 2 will be superiour to Velvet Assassin in a lot of ways but I`m hopeful for both games. I like when games surprise me by being amazing.

Gambit073575d ago

I would actually give the 1st AC a 6, it seems to me they were on a deadline and had to pan out the same missions over & over.

MrWeymes3575d ago

When I first started playing Assassins Creed, I understood why everyone liked it. The open ended style of gameplay and the ease of traversing the various areas was unique but as it went on, I disliked it more and more. All games are repetitive, but Assassins Creed was mind numbingly so. The story was interesting and the visuals were nice so I have hopes that they have ironed out some kinks with the sequel.
