Not a bad game, but very repetitive.

Fun for one hour, then you feel like you're playing the same mission over and over again. Closed corridors in the game make it frusturating at times because they only give you so much ammo for your side weapons, which are very ineffective compared to your sniper. Fair game but I wouldn't bother renting it again.

The play is great but the story line is to short. The graphics and realism is really good considering coming from 505. Like I said the only downfall is the short story line. Rented to play but will not buy if over $10. It will sit on the shelf considering the online play is a b.i.t.c.h since you never match up with someone.

Sniper Mediocre Would Be More Appropriate

I was hoping for a great sniper game, but ended up being disappointed.

The first problem I found was how the game is a third person shooter with the exception of when you aim through the scope of the sniper rifle. The switching back and forth between third and first person is jarring and immersion breaking, and the handling of the third person aiming and cover mechanics are rather poor.

Beyond that, the campaign missions are formulaic, repetitive, and extremely linear. Enemy AI is laughably poor and generic, offering little challenge even on higher difficulty levels once you recognize their patterns. Weapon selection is almost non-existent, and the choices you make in what extra equipment to carry are generally superfluous due to searching enemy bodies and abundant ammo drops.

The one bright spot for me was the close-up/X-ray kill camera, but even that grew old after seeing them so many times.

Overall, I'm glad I didn't waste my money buying this game at retail. It is much more suited to a weekend rental, as the re-playability is rather limited after you complete the rather short campaign.
