You snipe run to another location snipe some more and then snipe yet again. I like this game because I like to snipe in shooter games. It is a slight budget title being only $50 new but it is still worth playing. The shots where you get to see the bullet hit the nazis in slowmo are the best. Also, I know I said you snipe and thats it but you can also switch to other weapons for close range combat. Great game overall. At least rent it.

Sniper Elite, a review

For those fans such as myself who played the PS 2 Version of this game I waited for a second part with hopes that it would be better if not at least equal to the first game.
The game was a disappointment in some reguards and good in others.
First the good part of the game: The graphics of the game were excellent, buildings and rubble, vehicles and hiding places were well done. Unlike the first game, here you had many places to choose from. Such examples being the highest building to the basement, tense moments wondering if a enemy was hiding around the corner kept me looking around corners. The enemy soldiers and vehicles was also well done.
Now to the bad part: Unlike the first game, where you had missions that required looking for good positions to set up your sniping area and back up planning to move to another area if needed, this game lacks that. Soldier AI always know where you are after the first shot, making pulling back quietly to another position almost impossible. Traps don't always work and finding places to place explosives such as TNT to shoot at doesn't happen here. In the old game you could throw the TNT and then prep yourself to fire if things got too hot, in this game, you can only place it before you and if you do it by accident, you cannot pick it back up.
The game also does not let you find the best places to snipe, one example being the rail station with the V2 Rocket platform, it was the only place to hide and had more openings than a pack of swiss cheese, the limited amount of space for traps is limited leaving too many gaps and replaying the level many times to end the level.
silent kills is another bad part of this game, it always seems like the enemy knows from when one of thier own has been shot quietly, the "Man Down" goes up and the search begins, with you usually ending up getting killed
Replayability of this game is not very good, once the game ends, it seems like it ends with a blahh. If you can, just rent it.

This game has fun game-play, great graphics, and a Fairly interesting WW2 story. It's fun to play, and has some new mechanics that make it a nice challenge. It focuses mainly on stealth, but you can switch from your sniper to an automatic weapon and play with a more action based style.The sniping is extremely well done, and easy to use.This actually one of the only games i'm good at it.The sniper kill-cams are gruesome, gory, and extremely cool to watch.The games only drawbacks are it's short campaign, and (From my experience) dead multi-player.
