Ok first, COD, MOH, And Battlefield are lacking in certain key things. This game is to, a little. I have been unsatisified with the shooting of many games from this Genre. The best shooter of all time is in my opinion Delta Force 4 land warrior, why? because when done right you can clear a map with out a soul knowing until it gets to heaven. One of the few if only things missing from this game is something included in the Metro franchise. The ability to take out light sources. But this game hands down is better than the first few I mentioned. I am a camper, I am also a hunter, and a sniper. And all you punks know the only way to take out a sniper is with a sniper, a tank, or a danger close artillery strike. Any other game let you watch your bullet castrate your target? You can be sloppy and stupid in every other Shooter, rush in guns blazing. Fools. When you see your testicles rolling around your feet, I did that.

Its about time I saw a game that fits this descrption. Hardcore Sniper for WW2. YES! AND THEY EXECUTED PERFECTLY! Everything about this game is perfect! You got the oppurtunity to add the realistic effects like wind, gravity of bullet, and heart rate. Its the best game that iv'e rented so far. THIS IS A MUST PLAY GAME!!!!!!

Not quite as good as the original

I can't quite put my finger on why. I think that while the original was a bit rough around the edges, the technical restraints of the original, compared to its contemporaries in the last generation, didn't stand out quite as starkly as the sequel/remake does compared to ITS siblings in the current generation.

There's still some good sniping action to be had, but it doesn't feel quite as novel as it did in the original Sniper Elite. The x-ray cam is a novel but not really necessary addition, and the fact that you basically lose the slow-mo highlighted kills when playing in co-op is disappointing.

I understand why it was cut, but at the same time when playing with my buddy, seeing the game start to slow down and knowing that he'd just pulled off an amazing shot was one of the best parts of that game. It was always fun to kind of say "oh, what did you DO....?" and watch it play out. Plenty of time to high five or bump fists during the replays.

Anyway, it's better than the other Sniper franchise out there, Ghost Warrior, but it feels rough and unpolished. The enemy AI is terrible, sometimes ignoring your actions entirely and other times spotting you a mile away before you've done anything to reveal yourself, with no clear reason why.

Just doesn't hold up as well as the original and feels a bit dated and last gen despite the updates. Not terrible, but even as a huge fan of the original I found it somewhat underwhelming. Also worth noting the campaign is not only short but surprisingly so.
