Frustrating at times...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sniper Elite V2 (PC DVD) (Video Game)
PROS: .X-ray Kill cam, you're a sniper XD ,you get to blow peoples brains out, cool devices such as trip wires etc.
CONS: .Terrible enemy AI, Lack of diversity in missions, can be repetitive , can be frustrating(especially when you're up against a flipping tank! The graphics aren't amazing, the aiming assistance (the red triangle which shows where your bullet will end up is sometimes barely visible and is useless in a massive fire-fight. Secondary weapons are ridiculously inaccurate, Cannot be stealthy as such... they will spot you quite easily.

As much as you try to be stealthy they will always spot you and then run around like headless chickens.
It's a good game... I think :/ I haven't completed it yet and so far it's alright... It would be better I think if the x-ray kill cam had a bit more variation as it can get a bit repetitive at times.
Some of the missions are a bit frustrating when you don't have any ammo for your Tommy gun and you are up against quite a lot of people at close range, but I managed to get past that. The trip wires can be fun however it is rarely the case where they get that close to you to set them off. Although the demo made this game looked promising it and I'm sure you have played it to death like I have I was really looking forward to the full version and some more diversity in the game play. But overall I could not recommend the game to any of my friends as it is too repetitive and frustrating however I think if you play it in small amounts it can be bearable and fun at the same time. When you are playing this game I think the things that let it down is the terrible AI and the un sniper like stealth which you attempt to undertake just fails.
THE POSTAGE AND PACKAGING
As always Amazon do a great job at the packaging although there are some random leaflets inside they are easy to throw away. I took advantage of my Amazon Prime Free Trial and used that and it came 1 day late after the expected delivery date but I'm not really fussed.
