Summary: Game is garbage. Maxed difficulty on everything and it's just trash. AI is either stupid or omniscient. Infantry that use automatic weapons or infantry on the ground in general tend to be completely stupid and have jerky, odd movement. Sniper AI is godly, and will hit almost any shot on the first try. Tanks are stupid and easily dealt with. Literally the only challenge is the surprise snipers that spawn in once you hit a certain point to trigger them.
Summary: This game sucks. My Windows Vista computer meets all the requirements for this game (eg. Service Pack 2, DIrectX 11, etc), so I purchased it, installed it following all the instructions, and it won't run. I get the following error: Failed to initialize. D3D11 Error Code 1. I emailed product support and got some useless form letter response.
Summary: This game is not for the faint of heart when it comes to loading. There's the online "steam" download, them the game itself. Error messages should be expected even with newer computers. It's certainly not a plug-n-play game. Plan on spending hours disabling firewalls, anti-virus software, and many other applications. Even then, you're lucky to get started. Basically, it wants to be the only application on your computer besides Windows.
Summary: I couldn't install Sniper Elite without first installing steam, and steam is like an octopus with tentacles imbedding itself in a computer! I choose my password for Steam but when asked to sign in, an error came up "password incorrect." Nothing I did could correct this so finally through this game in the dump just couldn't get past the bloody sign in errors! Don't expect any help from this useless outfit because there isn't any. Buyer beware!!!
Awful Install Process - Will NEVER buy from Steam in future

Summary: What a piece of garbage. Here I am, three hours into trying to install this crap. I have a very high end 2012 gaming PC running Win7. The entire Steam install is a joke. I used to have a Steam account and had to go round in circles with emails to get that active. Then the install began. I have a 6Mb/sec internet connection that this process locked up repeatedly.
