No one listen to what Jason said rofl, he obviously wasn't accounting for the movement and the distance to the target, since he had his crosshairs directly on it, this is an amazing game, if you are into realistic sniping. If you are a call of duty sniper(eg. quickscope/ dont know how to use the mils) then you probably wont like this, which grant it I <3 quickscoping(teaser: this game has qsing if you can get up by the enemy lol) but, I prefer more realism in my shooting games, I would give this game a 9/10. 10 if it had a better/longer story.

i liked this game. i know,i know, the same missions repeated.and i hate linear games where there is only one path to take. some glitches were in the game especially when it autosaved,you would be listening to instructions and it would just start saving. didnt like when you pulled up the scope to aim and you were not looking where you thought you had pointed the scope, but other than that i hope they release another sniper game. i look forward to playing it.

Well I will try and give as fair a review as possible in 3 parts for anyone thinking of getting this game in the future.
1. The beginning or starting off: The story mode, the game is actually pretty fun and engaging. making me want to play more. I loved the one shot one kill scenarios and the stealth ability dring the first few missions!
2. Dislikes: Midway through the game it gets pretty repetitive and the lack of ability to actually lay down and steady your weapon, as a true sniper would undoubtedly do on almost every mission he went, gets annoying! Especially when you have to hit a moving target from half a mile away, battling the wind and gravity! Next the campaign after those first few missions is extremely weak and becomes Rambo esq! Taking on missions that clearly have nothing to do with you! Lastly the game asks you to collect these extra secrets or computer files during the campaign I guess as side missions. Problems these things are impossible to collect! They are almost always in the middle of a camp or an entire army and almost never close to where you are in the mission, which of course defeats the purpose of the game which is STEALTH! I wouldn't call needing to kill everyone to get files stealth!
3. Final thoughts: Good game for kids age 10 and under that wont notice a lot of the negatives, but if your a hardcore gamer and are looking for realism in some parts you will find it but in most you will not! I gave this game a 4 out of 10 because it lacks a lot of the essential things that make a quilty FPS (first person shooter). Like good graphics and more realistic AI for both the people with you and the enemy. The ability to leap or step over small rocks would have been nice also haha! When you take away the ability to use the forest to avoid conflict and be stealthy because you need to stay so strictly to a set course you defeat the purpose of your game. It's hard to be a Ghost when your made to walk down the middle of the road!
