This game was not bad. The sniping was realistic, wind speed, distance, all that fun stuff.
HOWEVER, I have played Sniper Elite and the XRAY Killcam on that absolutely ruined this game.
Sniper 2 Kills are very bland, Blood splatter then fall to ground. The sneak kills are not realistic, I mean cmon, you can not SILENTLY kill someone in the armpit... They would make noise.
The thing that REALLY bothered me was the Pistol handling, You could not switch your pistol to any other weapon, and the pistol control was weak. Your character did not have a grip what so ever and it wandered more than your sniper did at 160 bpm. Your character also had absolutely no stamina... At all.... Ever.
The story line was weak, it was there, but it felt a lot like they were just dumping you in the field and letting you shoot.
Overall, not too excited about it, finished both medium and elite in 2 days..
Poor game for 2013. 10 yrs ago, might have been novel. Found my self essentially walking coridors moving slowly any wrong move game over. No distance or mobility which seems essential for a "sniper". If you want a good sniper game rent farcry 3, you can build character for it, plenty of room and distance to play it the way it should be played.
