I found it a very addictive game. In my opinion better tha Call of Duty as there is much more planning and stealth involved in each level. There are many techniques to learn and different ways to eliminate the enemy and some very satisfying explosions. Some have said the graphics are not that amazing , however I feel they work well and the"anatomy of the shot" sequence is very cool. As I mentioned this is not a simple "shoot em up" game but one where you must plan your moves, lay traps and allow for bullet drift etc. PSN have some good map packs for very reasonable prices, well worth a look !
If you are, like me, prefer to plan and strategise your battlefield campaigns, this game may be perfect for you. Whilst I do like fast pace FPS like battlefield or COD games, I often do like to take my time and enjoy the realisim and the thrill of sniping, and this is an excellent game for that. The bots are relatively smart and campaigns are challenging and varied enough not to be repetitive or boring. Recommended buy.
Carry out your missions in any order you want. Watch out for enemy snipers. Take out the spotters to stop them summoning reinforcements. Hide in foliage and lure the enemy close to carry out stealth kills. Use noisy equipment as a sound cover for your gunshots. When your cover is blown, run like the blazes for fresh cover and wait it out. Not just guns but stick grenades, mines, trip mines, tnt. Oil barrels, jerry cans, ammo crates can all blow up to kill the enemy. Destroy trucks, armoured vehicles etc. Kill everyone or just do the missions and get out. Stealth or guns blazing. Play it how you like.
The action is incredible, a lot like Metal Gear Solid and it’s not just sniping, you can use machine guns, pistols and knives too. Didn’t lack at all, apart from the need to buy DLC was a bit too much so I’d recommend buying the limited edition one.
Better than SE3 in every way. Brilliant campaign, haven't tried any of the DLC yet. Has a few online modes the best imo is survival. Only minor complaint with this and zombie army is if the host quits the game ends so it's worth hosting your own games.
I've played 2 & 3 and 4 doesn't disappoint. The maps are great if you love the stealthy lifestyle of good sniper games. Am more than happy with this game, much as I have been with the series. Here's looking forward to Sniper Elite 5
Really like this game - hadn't played any of the earlier versions but it wasn't too hard to get into, instead it was just the right level of effort needed to get a good gaming experience. I don't have hours to spare on playing so getting the first campaign done in about an hour was just right for me.
