Summary: After having so much fun playing V2, I thought I would give this a try. I downloaded it for $9.99 on Steam, and downloaded xpadder 5-3 so I could map my xbox 360 controller. I have a decent PC with AMD 7950 3GB graphics card. I max it all out and it is very playable. I have only played a few levels so far.It does have a more open feel from what I have seen so far.
Summary: This is a pretty bad game. The sniping is awful; Bullets dropping off at 30 meters totally ruins any attempt at realistic sniping. The environments are bland and repetitive, you'll be seeing the same buildings over and over again throughout the entire game. AI is weak and the sound effects are anything but accurate. It's a game based in WWII, yet you play as an American and go around disguised as a German shooting at Russians.
Summary: This is the game that set the standards for what we enjoy today. Don't let the low system requirements fool you. This game has a very realistic play and is perfect for the household with a computer that can't play anything "because it's too old". The missions, interplay with environment and cinematics are great and give that little extra with the bullet cam provide an unexpected thrill of the kill. Don't pass this game... It would be a crime.
Summary: This game has so much potential and is good fun in its own way, but it falls short of what it could be. This is mainly due to clunky controls that have you looking down at your keyboard more than the screen, and some of the gameplay ruining what would otherwise be great fun. The computer AI leaves a lot to be desired, with enemies just running straight to where you've been hiding silently for 5 minutes.
Summary: I bought this game, thinking that it would be as good as Sniper: Ghost Warrior. I wasn't disappointed. In fact, the story was much better in Sniper Elite. My only problem was that changing weapons was sort of cumbersome, especially when trying to move from the Sniper mode to close combat with machine guns. Also, the age of the game showed. Things have come a long way in the last two years (not always for the better).
Summary: This is game you need to give a chance. First time I started this game was big disapointment. I thought nothing is good about this game and expectaions was big. After I gave it a chance for some time figured game is oposite then my previous opinion. Absolutely everything is made right here. Sneaking and sniping ratio is just right. levels are made good. Only bad thing happend in coop where enemies spawn from nothing on places you checked 10 seconds ago.
