Bad- red hit marker goes crazy better off not using it.
THE WORST THING IS how the bullet cam only follows the first enemy you shot NOT THE SAME BULLET CAM like sniper elite V2, so if u line up 2-3 enemies for one shot you only get to see the 1st guy get killed. plus the vehicle kill cams were GONE too it was just the same cut scene no matter where u placed the mine or dynamite. so by doing that u end up taking out all of the replay value that V2 had.
good big open environment, health packs are new and cool ads to the immersion, the cover system was smooth doesn't stick like V2, the free flowing camera and the weapon wheel was nice though it took away the shoulder aim being used by it's own button making u hold the trigger half cocked to shoulder aim with the rifle which made it way harder plus they never tell u how to aim over the shoulder with the rifle even with options menu I had to find out on my own they need a tutorial and the weapon wheel would have better been brought up by the d-pad. Still fun for a rent not a buy, your better off with V2 its more realistic plus u can see the bullet break down as it goes through all of the guys u shot with the bullet cam and the real vehicle explosions make for a better game still cool as helll if you haven't played V2 1st.

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.
