This is a low budget game, acknowledge that before reading any further.
This game has some of the coolest mechanics that i have seen in a while. The first and most apparent is that depending on the height and distance of the target you will have to compensate in the scope, (they do not do wind or drag but if you hold your breath they will put a red diamond where your bullet will go. Then you fire the gun and if it is a good shot they will bullet time follow it all the way to the target. Then if it a really good shot they will mortal kombat style x ray through the person showing all of the damage that it is doing. After the kill it self you will get points that go to leader boards so you can see how you stack up with other snipers. There is also a noise system where if something loud enough occurs it will mask the sound of your shot letting you get away with it. Lastly there is collectables and multiplayer that adds for the time you will spend in the game.
This game graphically is not pretty, it looks early gen at best. Also they give this game a very heavy stealth feel without pollishing the stealth mechanics very well. (at one point another sniper I was watching turned around and instantly started shooting at me from over 100 meters, I couldn't see him without a scope.) Fighting with your side arm is sloppy at best, and voice acting and story telling are abysmal. That said if you play it like any other cover based shooter you can have a lot of fun with this game.
If this game had been picked up by a publisher with more money to throw at it I think it could have been a 9 or 10 rated game, however with the funds it had they did a solid job. Everyone who is a fan of WW2 or snipers should at least give this game a try.
