I was sceptical on how I would enjoy this game, I have always been a fan of sniping in COD, but usually get found and shot before I can do anything......boo who.....In this game, stealth, patience and time are virtues, definitly not a run and gun, it doesn't work. I love the way it slows down the bullet and gives an anatomicly correct breakdown of how your shot crushes the ememy. The missions are long and involved, waiting for the perfect moment, then blammo, another one bites the dust. Definitly a stress reducer, love ww2 time period games and am pumped to continue the slaughter as a 1 man killing machine.

My biggest beef with this game as Active Duty SF is there is absolutely no cover/concealment system.
A true sniper is always invisible when they strike, and this game makes that near impossible.
The bullet cam is awesome, and is the only bright spot in the gameplay/presentation. Brutal destruction of your foe's internal organs is shown to reward a good shot, but the challenge of obtaining a good shot is so minimal the reward is small. This leaves the gamer quickly bored.
This title is certainly a solid RENT as it is very fun for a few hours to take the shot and see the result, but the lack of cover and stealth leaves you fighting off attackers more often than picking them off from the shadows as a sniper would.
