4.0 out of 5 stars Great, Innovated Bullet Kill-cam Mechanism - Good Game Graphics - Weak Plot, Storyline & Character Development, 27 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sniper Elite 3 (PS4) (Video Game)
I’ll just like to first say that I've previously played the other two Sniper Elite games in the series (on PC/PS3) & I have to acknowledge that this game, the third in the series is the best. Let me start with the main reason why this game has distanced itself (in a good way) from the other linear point-and-shoot WW2 Sniper/Shooter games. The fundamentally reason and solid-core of the game is the Bullet Kill-cam; that tracks the sniper bullets from the muzzle to the muscle. They have innovated the Kill-cam by adding new fanatically-awesome layering to the unique selling point of this game as you watch your carefully planned bullet hit your target from your sniper hide-out or disguised cave crevice.

The attention to detail as to the devastating effects to the circulatory and bone system as a bullet crunches bone and explodes organs is rather worryingly, yet strangely awesome at the same time. As with many sniper-focused games; it must be said that the storyline, plot & character development is mediocre at best; but the sheer ruthless violence as you watch your timed bullets fly across the desert plains to explode a tank or take out a chief commander, well makes up for this. To be fair to the developers; it must be very hard to develop an intrinsic storyline for a game that revolves around targeting different areas of the body to witness the bloody, yet ruthlessly awesome effect.

They have developed the ability to change your equipment and load-out more so than the other two predecessors; which makes a great improvement as you can change your sniper rifle, scope, rifle body, etc. for your own preferences.

Also, I haven’t played much multiplayer but the new and improved online game modes are a great addition; especially the new, sniper-only, online game mode that involves two sides picking one another off with a barrier between the two to prevent close-quarter combat. There is also the ability to play online co-op and if you’re like me and you like to play with a friend to pick of your targets and explore the campaign with double the sniper power, this is a must-have addition to the game. The online survival mode is also a great supplement to the game; as you fight waves of progressively more violent enemies in your bid to survive the onslaught.

It’s by no means a top AAA game that will make other games shiver in its presence; but in my opinion it has a lot more to offer than perhaps the other more commercially-based, well-known games that seem to ride on their popular fan-base instead of actually developing something fresh and new to consumers. In my opinion, this is a great game from a small, not so known developer that have looked at what needed improving from their previous games and enhanced the game from the down-falls of its predecessors.
