if your interested in the concept of being a sniper you will love this game, i personally enjoyed this game a lot because of the way in which you had to be patient and really take your time in order to complete each level, there's no way you can just run around with your machine gun and kill everything, you really have to put a lot of thought into how to get through a range of different situations ranging from assassinations to securing entire army bases.
the only downsides to the game that i came across, is that it does tend to get a bit boring with regards to using trial and error techniques to get through missions, for example learning the routes of certain guards and patrol units, also it does tend to get annoying when guards appear from nowhere or pop up from places that you have already secured, but i guess that does happen in any army/war game.
the artificial intelligence is brilliant, if you play in harder modes it takes great amounts of skill to over come even one enemy and also the graphics are great.
again if you love the thought of being a sniper this game is definitely for you.

Ok well first off I will tell you about the good things in this game.

1-The graphics were not top notch but they didn't suck, they were actually pretty decent. Especially when you have the bullet cam on and you get a head shot. Pretty good.

2-My husband and I have a hard time trying to find games that are Co-Op, and not just trying to hunt and kill each other. We actually got to do the mission together which was great.

Overall the game scored pretty well with me and my husband. We would probably own it one day just cause. Its well worth renting. Now some of the negative things we found.

1-The saving took extremely long. For impatient people like us it was horrible.

2-There is some kind of coloring problem in the co-op missions. The top screen is always darker then the bottom screen. Now on daylight missions it didn't matter too much, but in dark missions it was so hard to see what I was doing. I quite often just looked at the bottom screen and stayed close to the other player so I could see if there were any enemies around. Otherwise they came out of nowhere and got me.

But the game is totally worth the rent if you like shooter games. I would recommend it to just about anyone.

Sniper Elite is a realistic game about being a sniper during WW2. This is the first game of it's kind and it's a good one. The graphics are a little outdated but the realism makes up for it. They put in everything that a real sharpshooter actually has to do. A few examples are holding your breath, aiming a little higher than the enemies head if he's a long distance away, and you even have to see which way the wind is blowing so it won't push your bullet of target. This is probably the most realistic gameplay to date. This game is fun but it's pretty hard, I found myself restarting each level at least three times. You have to be really patient playing this, so if your not a patient person I wouldn't recommend this game to you.
