If I can only let you into my nervous system to know how I truly feel.
Let me just start off by saying this game has a lot of potential, sniping feels smooth and the x-ray kill cam is a blast! But that's about it... I've never been so anxious to hurry up a strategic/ stealth game in my life! Don't get me wrong -- I absolutely love these kinds of games, but as for this one, it felt incomplete and almost as if I were playing a beta of some sort.
There are a lot of glitches and bugs that come with endless frustrations such as enemy snipers have plasma rifles that shoot through cave walls and enemy AI are mindless when you want immersion, then they are precisely trained elite green berets when you miss one shot and "need some leprechaun luck".
I was excited when I herd that this piece of work was non linear... But I just wanna say this game is a non linear game like diet soda is a healthy alternative. One of my biggest/ minor problems I faced was when I tried to slide down a 5 foot hill like a pro and my character somehow twisted his ankle and shot himself, It's not a big deal but it gets a little annoying progressing 30 min into a game of realistic mode only to find that your shot point average higher than NFL players is afraid of heights.
As for the story... Its like watching a bad HBO
Pros: X-Ray Kill Cams - Didn't have to buy it (gamefly)
Con's: Bugs & Glitches - Drunk AI - A not so Linear Game - Current Gen Graphics - Unoriginal Story
Since ps4 doesn't have a prestigious selection, it wouldn't be a bad choice to x-ray some faces off in SE3, certainly isn't unplayable, just frustrating at times. 6/10

So I played and pretty thoroughly enjoyed the first Sniper Elite. I loved almost everything about it and it was by far the most promising sniper game on the market, that I knew about anyways. So I was holding out for this game to expand on what they did with the first game without changing the things that made it so promising, but man is this not that.
This is essentially a re-boot of the first game. The sniping physics and interaction and x-ray replay are all almost the exact same. The missions are the same jumbled, overly stealthy, missions with different and new maps. Some new features make the game almost hold your interest until one of the game's many wondrous glitches rears its ugly head. Overall, looks like we will still have to wait for someone to come out with a GOOD sniping game.
