IMG Reviews Velvet Assassin
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Digital Tribe's Velvet Assassin. The stealth action title follows the exploits of World War II spy Violette Summer, who must make use of her assassination skills to defeat her Nazi foes.

Here's an excerpt:

To play successfully one needs to spend a lot of time observing clues the game provides. For instance, listening to the lengthy conversations of the guards often provide hints as to where something is located or what activities are happening nearby. Sometimes a conversation reveals something as seemingly mundane as one guard's need to leave for a moment to “take care of nature’s business," which is actually useful information, as one guard alone is an easy kill. Other audible clues include sounds such as: coughing, steps, squeaks, and so forth. There are visual clues as well, a guard that is hard to see might, for a short moment, move into view, or a shadow might alert you to someone around a corner. All doors have keyholes that can be peeked through to get a small glance of the room beyond.
