Overall, to be completely honest, this game wasn't really that good. When it comes to sneaking around and being stealthy, this game barely sneaked by (no pun intended). Although you are given a silenced pistol to take enemies out with, aiming for the enemy is difficult, and knowing whether or not the enemy is there is nearly impossible at times no matter how tactful you are. There are certain areas where you can't see the enemy or draw them out with your equipment no matter what you do. However, If you are spotted by the enemy, its not impossible to take them with your pistol and prevent the alert. But when the enemy IS on alert, and you are not at a vantage point where you can snipe (which happens more so than not), it takes a while to take out the enemy. Also, you get a pistol and sub machine gun as your weapons. However, the sub machine gun is very inaccurate unless you are at close range, while the enemy can hit you from over a hundred yards away with an MP40 or PPSH. Also, the checkpoints are ridiculous. There are missions where you fight, and fight, and fight, until you finally finish off one squad of the enemy, now you move onto the next one, and fight them for a long time. Finally you get to the final unit before you get to a checkpoint, and you don't make it. Now you have to start ALL over again, which gets very frustrating.

But there is a positive side, because when it comes to WWII sniping, this game excels! Sniping is very realistic, and satisfying. Although the wind and gravity aspects of sniping can be difficult at times, the features of getting a kill make a kill more satisfying and fun. Often when you get a kill, there will be a slow motion bullet cam that shows you where your bullet hit for the kill. Also, you have the ability to use sniper tactics that include planting mines, scanning the area with binoculars (which really helps) and planning out your attack before you shoot.

Expect great sniping fun, but not much more beyond tha
