Beautifully Stylized Game 0

I must admit that I am a sucker for stealth games.  I have loved the Hitman series since the first one (and managed to 1000 the 360 game, which took several patient hours), and in this way Velvet Assassin should be right up my alley.  Initially the visuals are striking and beautiful, as it gives a real post-apocalyptic morphine-induced veneer to WWII Paris.  The nagging thing is the gameplay elements prevent this from becoming more than a passing trial.  It is a mindless stealth game in which yo...
