Since PS2 I have avidly followed this series. A true reviewer.
In the First , it was interesting enough being in an urban environment , although the most fun level in my opinion was the Airfield. Lots of opportunity for long shots .
V2 was ok , but kind of a letdown with crammed open area levels , more of a run and gun deal and less true sniping.
This one however is nice , with the distances , sneaking , and things to shoot besides troops . Unlockables such as gun parts and mines etc are nice additions
Yes the game is a bit short for my taste , and yes the annoying thing is your sniper will inadvertantly walk , with no help from you causing a few sticky situations .
If they improved , stopping the walking , doubled the game length , and added areas in between to break up the desert motif such as an airfield etc (Sniper In France or maybe Germany?) This would be awesome
A Keeper however in my book for true sniper fans , at least a step BACK in the right direction and at LEAST a Solid Rental
