4.0 out of 5 stars You, your sniper and a purpose., 25 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sniper Elite V2 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Ultimately this game was fun to play. I enjoyed patrolling the streets of a quarried 1945 Germany on my own, bearing my trusty sniper along with my deadly equipment. Features such as the X-ray kill cam was what made this game stand out from its competitors. The story line was understandable and fun to complete and I certainly enjoyed scouting patrolling enemies from broken rooftops and popping a cap in their A**, if you understand what I mean.

I believe that this game deserves a 3 out of a possible 5 and here are my reasons for it:

The realism of the game:

In your inventory you had things such as trip wire, land mines and grenades. Not to mention your rock which you could use (i.e. throw) to intrigue enemy units and move them away from the path to complete your objective. The effects of these were certainly not non-realistic and I liked the precise placing feature for throwing grenades and/or placing trip mines in doorways (HAHA). The sniping was as realistic and the designers of the game, Rebellion, certainly took into account aspects of sniping simulation such as aim stability, penetration, gravity and velocity.

The environment:

Aesthetically the game was certainly adequate to my liking. The broken buildings, flaming vehicles and in the distance aircraft's made me feel as if I was in 1945 Berlin searching for that most important vantage point to eliminate my target.

The simplicity:

Don't get me wrong but I do like getting indestructible followers and a vehicle which can transform into a house but I really felt as if the simplicity of this game was advantageous. At the end of the day in Sniper Elite V2 you are a lone wolf finding sources that leads you to your goal. In this game you have no rocket-propelled mini guns, its just you, your sniper and a purpose.

However I believe that there are some disadvantages to this game. Firstly I believe there should have been more levels. It was in all fairness a short campaign and I was surprised at the end to see that I had completed it. Secondly locating all the bottles and gold bars was a nightmare to do. There was no faint sound or highlight around the objects, so it was difficult to find them as they adapted into the background. Also for collecting the gold bars and bottles there was NO reward apart from an achievement/trophy. Maybe the reward should have been a gold plated, gas operated sniper (pardon the over exaggeration).
