Had a very good story line. Not many weapons although the ones they did have were not all that different. The online is terrible due to the lack of players. Games like this need to be advertised more so they can be a contender in the world of shooters.
When Sniper Elite V2 shines, it shines bright. But the 3rd person combat (when not using a Sniper Rifle) is highly frustrating in moments you need it not to be. Also, the game leads you to believe you can employ a stealth method, but will often blow your cover by having an enemy sniper magically appear down range, or having one enemy soldier suddenly spot you, in cover or not. The kill-cams are something of beauty for fans of gore, and can be incredibly rewarding after taking time to prep the shot (assuming you play the game with physics and wind enabled). The story is your basic "nothing really goes according to plan" type, but it's not enough to detract from the overall fun. After all, we all came for the headshots, right?
