Manufacturer's Description

Sniper Elite V2

The sequel to Rebellion’s highly-acclaimed 2005 game Sniper Elite, Sniper Elite V2 continues to offer gamers the most authentic World War II sniping experience by putting them in the middle of war-torn Berlin amidst the frenzied final battle between German and Russian forces.
Berlin 1945. V2 Rockets with deadly nerve gas are primed to launch. An army of German and Russian soldiers stand in your way. Make every single bullet count or the world dies with you.

It’s a heart-stopping race against time to save millions of people…

Game Features:

  • X-Ray Kill Cam
    Amazing “kill cam” technology showcases what really happens when a bullet enters an enemy’s body, allowing players to see hearts and lungs tear, livers burst, bones and teeth shatter, and entrails fall out.

  • Sniping Simulation
    Sniper Elite V2 features detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, taking into account gravity, wind, velocity, bullet penetration, aim stability and more. Guaranteed to provide players with the most realistic simulation of military sharpshooting yet available.

  • Sniper's Choice
    Players will often find themselves facing a choice of the perfect shot that leaves them catastrophically exposed or a more difficult route that means they can continue their mission.

  • Authenticity
    The game features authentic World War II Berlin locations as well as vehicles, weapons such as the Springfield M1903, the Gewehr 43 and the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30, and uniforms modeled after the original versions.

  • Use The Environment
    The slightest changes in the environment need to be taken into account to move into the perfect position, observe the quarry, take the shot and slip away unnoticed.

    “Sniper Elite V2 is a markedly different sort of shooter, and should be celebrated as such.” Edge

4.0 out of 5 stars Great update to a PS2 classic 4 May 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Sniper Elite was one of my favourite games on the PS2, this game is basically a remake and a good one at that. This game is about taking your time lining up the shot, timing shots to be concealed by environmental sounds and, optionally, allowing for gravity, distance and windspeed for those with a greater challenge.
the game looks great and i really dont understand those saying it has poor graphics, it will impress you time after time with its great level detail and lighting.
it can seem a little easy and going stealth isnt a requirement, you can run and gun with a thompson or an mp40 if youre conservative with your ammo, although ammo crates are abundant.
Knowing this, i still found myself taking my time, trying to get as many kills as possible before being detected or patrols spotting bodies. Its a personal choice how you want to play this game.
try the demo, if you can, its a good representation of the final product.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sniper School 11 May 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Sniper Elite to be fair is a technically average game that just happens to be a lot of fun ! If as a child you enjoyed reading Commando comics and watching repeats of Where Eagles Dare every Christmas, then this game is for you !

The basic premise of the game is a third person, cover and shoot style game mixed with first person aiming whenever you use your sniper rifle scope. Using this awkward blend of perspectives you progress through a number of missions to try and stop Nazi scientists selling the Russians V2 rocket technology in the closing days of WWII.

Although the game is initially presented as kind of a WWII version of Assassins Creed it soon becomes clear that trying to sneak through the levels is a waste of time. There are many areas where it is simply impossible to progress without taking out all of the enemy soldiers in your way. Although this goes against any common sense as a sniper it is lots of fun to become a one man army and take out entire patrols single handed. This by the way does seem to include shooting Russians as well as Germans, which is a little harsh considering they are on your side in the war. But as elite US sniper Karl Fairburne you obviously have the future Cold War in mind ( either that or you could be responsible for starting it ! ).

The controls can be a little frustrating at times as you switch between the first person high powered scopes of the different sniper rifles to the more familiar third person cross hairs of the other weapons. I got particularly annoyed by the way unfamiliarity with the many controls often leads to blowing your cover before you are in position. This is particularly unforgiving as once the guards are alerted they keep searching for you and any subtle plan you may have had goes out the window.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely worth a shot...! 8 May 2012
By Riviley
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I admit, I was slightly disappointed to begin with. Having played the Demo, which I thought was excellent, I found the first 2 levels infuriating, with enemy soldiers shooting, with perfect accuracy, automatic rifles and making shots that I was struggling to make with my sniper rifle - admittedly I was playing on the hardest version with none of the sniping aides in operation. However, once you get your mindset into "once you make that first shot, you best be prepared to take everyone down" - the game really comes into its own. You must plan your attack; where your most defended position is, and protect it using mines and trip wires; where the enemy congragates in order to plan grenade or dynamite attacks. Once they hear that first shot, the enemy attacks relentlessly.
Other reviewers have complained that the AI is too good - I would argue that with easier AI, that it would simply turn into a shooting range. The AI makes you think about the best time to make the shot - creates a nervousness before setting into motion your plan, and in essence is what makes the game frustrating, yet addictive. There are a few bugs - some of the movement is not fluid, it is incredibly difficult to plan an attack perfectly; you sometimes need to fail in order to understand where the enemy troops move to, in order to plan better. However, graphics, atmosphere and addictabilty are there in abundance. It's not fast - it's the thinking man's game - if COD is the 100m and Battlefield is the marathon, Sniper Elite is an excellent game of chess. Buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unpolished and frustrating 14 July 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Attracted by the idea of killing Hitler (best pre-order DLC idea ever), I approached Sniper Elite V2 looking for a challenge, a game that required some precision and patience, unlike most other first person shooters nowadays. So, when the menu suggested the "Sniper Elite" difficulty (aka the hardest difficulty) as the ultimate sniper experience I obviously accepted the challenge. After all, I'm good at this stuff, or at least I like to think I am.

Another thing that made me want to play the game was the setting. An American sniper, in the battle for Berlin, behind enemy lines, making sure the Russians didn't get any German scientists to help them develop weapons of mass destruction. World War II has been present in videogames a considerable number of times, but it's been a few years since shooters moved away from that setting into the present era and near-future settings, so this seemed fresh and new all over again.

But it wasn't.

Berlin wasn't as impressive as it should have been. More importantly, it wasn't believable at all. Every now and then I'd hear bombs falling down, but it was always somewhere else. I saw destroyed buildings, but not a single building being destroyed, I saw a lot of soldiers, but most of them were just hanging around. I saw a few battles, but there never were more than ten soldiers in each side. I walked through a number of destroyed buildings, but saw no trace of human life. Well, there were some sofa's turned upside down, but I wouldn't say that counts. Not a single person, no pictures or objects to make the scenario more believable. Just grey, burned walls, and a street full of enemy soldiers waiting to be shot.

The graphics were acceptable and the light effects were pretty, but the level design failed completely.
