Sniper Elite V2
Experience Sniper Elite V2 like never before.
The Wii U version of the highly-acclaimed Sniper Elite V2 gives gamers an all-new, immersive experience via the GamePad which allows for greater tactical depth and flexibility, an easily accessed inventory and the ability to play the entire game on the tablet itself, no television required!
Wii U™ Key Features:
- Tagging and Tracking
With just one glance at the GamePad fans can tag enemies and booby traps, track enemy locations and activity and monitor the blast radius of planted explosives, never having to leave the battlefield for a second.
- Weapons/Inventory System
Players use the GamePad to instantly touch what they need allowing for on the fly changes to weaponry as well as real time monitoring of your heart rate.
Play the entire game on the GamePad when the TV is in use for something else.
- X-Ray Kill Cam
Amazing “kill cam” technology showcases what really happens when a bullet enters an enemy’s body, allowing players to see hearts and lungs tear, livers burst, bones and teeth shatter.
- Sniping Simulation
Sniper Elite V2 features detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, taking into account gravity, wind, velocity, bullet penetration, aim stability and more.
- Sniper's Choice
Players will often find themselves facing a choice of the perfect shot that leaves them catastrophically exposed or a more difficult route that means they can continue their mission.
The game features authentic World War II Berlin locations as well as vehicles, weapons such as the Springfield M1903, the Gewehr 43 and the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30, and uniforms modeled after the original versions.
- Use The Environment
The slightest changes in the environment need to be taken into account to move into the perfect position, observe the quarry, take the shot and slip away unnoticed.

I like an immersive single player experience, tactical gameplay and a smooth learning curve, SniperV2 delivers on these counts. The gamepad is used nicely and is effective for the management of inventory with the additional bonus of off screen play. The game is heavy on the gore so not suitable for kids.
Graphically more than adequate and the audio cues are not too annoying ( don't be fooled if the "enemy present" music disappears they may not have).
The game delivers exactly what it says and I have issues putting it down, always a sign of a cracker, the value is excellent and having been totally under hyped I recommend a look if shooting nazis from a safe distance is your thing.
I cite the lack of multiplayer and online features a pro as I think sometimes it is nice to just have a bit of mindless fun without having to interact and there is the possibility of downloadable content if there is enough interest.

To sum a great game that in my opinion stands up with goldeneye(n64) as one of the finest first person shooters to grace a Nintendo console.
The game consists of only 11 missions (including the Prologue), posting screenshots on Miiverse are sort of censored (it takes a screenshot of the Pause Menu when playing the game) because this game is a little too graphic for Miiverse community but aside that I totally loved the experience like, sniping the enemies exactly at their skull allows the gamer to see it breaking down in slow-motion or in other parts of the body, so it's understandable Nintendo didn't want screenshots of this available on Miiverse as a child could randomly stumble upon the Sniper Elite V2 community and be shocked, so of course they didn't want that.
Now, as for problems I only recall the game freezing once on me which never happened with any other game then again it's possible they didn't develop this properly because there's quite a good lot of bugs/glitches you end up seeing here and there which at the same time is pretty funny.
P.S.: The Wii U edition as everyone knows does not have Online Multiplayer nor DLC, so it's quite a bare bones release and the worst console port of this game but not bad by any chance. It's definitely much better on PC though as the graphics are way better (they're fine on the Wii U).
I expected more.
Not worth it.

If the Wii U version had access to the DLC of other consoles this would be a perfect 5*. Sadly it doesn't - it's still a great game though.Published on 16 Mar. 2014 by paulbrad
