Well worth the Almost 7 year wait...........,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sniper Elite V2 (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
What a Game! Being a huge fan of the original Sniper Elite on PS2! I always held hope that developers Rebellion would deliver a sequel or continue the Franchise in some way,not that i thought they would,as the game had a certain one-off ring to it,but still i hoped for something as the original was one of my favourite games ever! Well here we are almost 7 years on and finally it's here SNIPER ELITE V2! Was it worth the wait........A resounding YES! The game certainly delivers on all levels and retains that SNIPER ELITE feel that made the original so good. Admittedly the game is more of a Remake than a sequel,but it's still fresh....still new and if like me you played the original back in 2005,i'm sure it will churn up nostalgic undertones as you play through a thoroughly enjoyable and quite generous Single-player Campaign. This game is through and through a stealth action shooter,so going in all guns blazing often ends in frequent deaths...WW2 era it is but Call of duty it most certainly isn't! So take your time. it's most definately a thinking man's shooter so if you crave a more Analytical approach and have the patience of saints then this is right up your street. there's plenty of extras including co-op modes online and off so the game certainly has longevity as well as playability. all in all a great game and for me definately as good as the excellent original. If you like games like SPLINTER CELL and HITMAN then you'll know what to expect as this game is just as good and fits perfectly in their said Genre. so what are you waiting for,if you don't already own this game,then go buy it! it's well worth the price-tag and you won't be dissapointed! A Brilliant Game. 10/10.
