4.0 out of 5 stars Not perfect - but great fun, 19 May 2012

This review is from: Sniper Elite V2 (PC DVD) (Video Game)
I loved it. It really reminded me of the original Medal Of Honour game in the way that it's laid out.

Yes - It's linear. Despite there being open areas you can only ever go on one or two directions.
Yes - It's scripted. (On the V2 level you always set off the alert on your third kill, no matter how stealthy you have been)
Yes - There is the rooftop level where enemy snipers "pop up" from nowhere after you have already searched that area.
Yes - It's not realistic. You have to stretch your imagination to believe you could take out a tank with a single bullet to the fuel tank, or fully recover from any wound in 5 seconds.

... and despite that I couldn't get enough of it. It you are the kind of person who wants reality, this game is definitely not for you.
However if you're the kind of person who enjoyed the early (WW2) Medal Of Honour series then I think you'd have a blast with this game. My only realy criticism was that it is fairly short. (I played it through in less than 30 hours) but I'm pretty sure we'll see some add-on missions in the future and the multi-player is popular.

My best advice - Try the demo...it pretty much sums up the whole feel of the single-player game.
