Really Bad

Stay Away from the PS3 Version!!!

I have no idea what happened, or what the devs were thinking, but this game is awful! It's like they didn't even try. I personally loved V2, it is one of my favorite games, so I was extremely excited when 3 was announced. I couldn't even finish it 3 because the bugs were so bad the game became unplayable. Insane clipping issues when I'm shooting at the enemy, I am aiming dead on and my bullets aren't counting. Another issue, the enemy being able to see me through walls half way across the map, I was crouching the entire time by the way. The enemies on the other side of the map being able to hear me, even when I'm crouching, thus alerting every darn enemy in the mission.... Oh and here's a real kicker, the bullet cam is completely glitched and broken. I did not get one, NOT ONE, X-ray cam the entire time I was playing, with the exception of the opening scene at the very beginning. I even changed my settings to high and I still could not get one. I hope the PS4 version is better for you gamers who have the new system already, because the PS3 version looks, and plays, like some lazy, buggy port over. I am beyond disappointed!

I was so excited to get this game but it was so disappointing was let down the game aiming was pretty bad if you have a perfect shot do not kill the enemy it only kill the enemy it wants to. Also don't like this game it do not have checkpoints or save the game if you die you have to start level beginning it save in the end of the game I don't think it's worth renting and buy. Also the multiplayer it slow I don't think it's worth a time I got this game in today am going to send back tomorrow.

Well, everybody, it's here. The third installment in the Sniper Elite Series. Or at least I think it is..
I had fun with this game for the first mission or so, but after that it just got repetitive and annoying. All the enemies were better at sniping than I, and they used SMGs.
If you suck at sniping in alot of game, like me, you'll use the little red diamond to snipe people.
Even that is a problem. It sometimes just randomly flings down to another target for no reason, so you, the player, decide to bring it up so it goes to the target you want to hit.
It flings back up ABOVE the target that you want to hit, you push it back down, and it finally lets you hit it.
Wasnt my favorite game ever.
One of my least favorite.
Although I have to give it to the game, It looks and runs great.
Even on PS3 it looks amazing.
My overall rating for this game is a 4, seeing as the annoying little errors and the grunts being 45 times stronger than your sniper rifle even if they dont have arms... Yea...
My opinion, you can love this game all you want.
Good day.
