I really liked this game. Its probably not everyone's cup of tea but I found it challenging and totally gory. Made me realize how horrible a rifle wound be. The EX-Ray graphics as your bullet hits your target is brutal to say the least. On more than one occasion I got a dude through the leg, both testicles and the other leg. OUCH !
Head shots on snipers were really gory. Emphasis on stealth you want to sneak and kill quietly though there is no hand to hand you can use your Welrod for silent kills up close. A couple times the auto save left me in a really bad spot to start over from. In one case I ran in a door way only to be shot by a guy just inside the door. So when I retried from the save point it spawned me in the door way immediately being shot and if I managed to kill the guy in front of me the tank behind me blew me up before I could move. Must have taken 30 tries to get past that. This is an interesting twist on a war game. I enjoyed it.
I was excited when this game finally came in the mail since I love sniper games. The first level was cool but every level after that was just like groundhogs day...same thing over and over. At first I like the cutaway graphics of the bullet flying through a human skull but when it does that for almost every shot it gets boring quick. Not only that but when facing multiple enemy it tends to break your concentration and takes away from the flow of moving from one target to the next. This game was quick to beat which makes it that much less intriguing. I didnt pick up any bottles or gold bricks since there didnt seem to be any point to it except for a trophy. Its a good game to play....once. Worth the rent but not worth it to buy.
