First off i love sniper games, but this one didn't cut it. the graphics are average. i honestly think they tried to make the play control as frustrating as possible. the game isn't very difficult on normal, but with the poor play control it makes the game much more frustrating.
one thing i did like was the storyline. overall i was disappointed with this one. wouldn't recommend buying it or playing it unless you want to waste time and money.

I got extremely excited when I saw this game finally shipped and could not wait to lie down, slow my breathing, take account for wind, aim, and shoot.
Playing the first level I really liked the game. It focused on the sniping aspect of the game, sneak in, shoot, sneak out. As the game progressed however my dislike for the game grew more and more. It lost the aspect of sneaking and taking your time and focused more on battling everyone in order to get to your point. You would then get to your point and the shot you were looking forward to would take 6 seconds. You then had to yet again battle your way out.
The actual sniping aspect of the game is great. Sniper Elite Difficulty is the only way to play. In order for any shot to hit you have to look at the wind and distance. It makes you actually bring out your spotting binoculars and get an idea of where to shoot. I will say though, that even with that added aspect, the game is very easy and not very challenging, you can blame that on the regenerating health.
In the end this game is good, it did a lot of things wrong but did a lot of things right. I think this game should be played by anyone that enjoys sniping, but I would recommend you to rent it before buying, it may not be for you as it was for me. Also it is very short, I got the platinum within 20 hours.

At first I didn't know what I was going to think about the game after playing the demo. I thought the killcams and such would get boring after a while. But it actually turned out to be a great game. For the most part everything in the game was good but it had some flaws like any game. One flaw was that the game was so short. On the highest difficulty I still managed to complete the game in 12 hours. And I was not even that good at it. The multiplayer definitely could have used some improvements. So overall the game was good but some things weren't so good. I recommend renting it because its very short and will eventually get boring.
