Sniper Elite V2

  • Summary: The appeal of the World War II shooter faded long ago. Medal of Honor, Battlefield and Call of Duty now look to contemporary war zones for inspiration, while other shooters look toward the future ( Syndicate ). Sniper Elite V2 comes with a twist, however: What if you could snipe Nazis in the balls? Tantalizing, I know. Sniper Elite V2 is the perfect meeting point between shooters today and shooters a decade ago.

Sniper Elite V2 review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Yes, Sniper Elite V2 is a game in which, through an x-ray kill-cam, you can see a man’s testicles explode from the force of a high-velocity sniper rifle round. But the sooner you giggle that imagery out of your system, the sooner you’ll realize that such silliness is in stark contrast to the realism and quality that this game exhibits. It’s not always the most polished game, but overall, it’s a pleasantly fun surprise.
  • Pros: Every gory, detailed kill, Customizable difficulty, The satisfaction of being a good ghost
  • Cons: Feels unpolished in some points, Some checkpoint scarcity at times, The game, if you play it like a Gears-style shooter

Sniper Elite V2 Review

  • Excerpt: Sniper Elite V2 won't serve us well in any video game violence debate. "Honestly, games are wholesome and culturally important!" we'll cry as a slow-motion bullet rips through a Nazi's liver. The big addition to this sequel of a 2005 original is a preposterous new killcam that activates every time you land a perfect hit. Think VATS from Fallout 3, only with more gruesome anatomy.

  • Conclusion: Great sniping and robust multiplayer do a lot to offset the awful non-sniping sequences which there are far too many of. Rebellion and 505 should stick to the rooftops if they revisit this series.

Sniper Elite V2 Review (PS3)

  • Conclusion: Sniper Elite V2 Image © 505 Games Glitches, repetition, odd A.I., inconsistent difficulty -- these are the kind of criticisms that can sink a game like "Sniper Elite V2." And yet none of them are consistent enough to really make the difference. They hold the game back from what it could have been but don't keep it from being pretty fun as it is.

  • Excerpt: While the sniper rifle is a familiar element of most virtual armories, there are only a handful of games that make it the main attraction. Sniper Elite V2 is Rebellion’s second shot at the series, and armed with some brand new tech, it aims to make each round fired a spectacle of lethal penetration. Can it encapsulate the thrill of dealing death through a scope or does it just miss the mark?

  • Conclusion: When the dust settles on Sniper Elite V2 though, it’ll likely be remembered for those X-Ray kill animations and little else of note. Your level of enjoyment will be almost directly mapped to how entertaining you find the visual spectacle to be, and - for me at least - it was perfectly good fun in short bursts. Not the best shooter of the year by a long stretch then, but certainly nowhere near the bottom of the pile.

Rebellion Delivers A Visceral WWII Shooter

Game Informer
1 May 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Combine visceral x-ray bullet damage with solid WWII sniping to satisfying and wince-inducing results Graphics: Macabre sights like blowing off a rival sniper’s fingers are detailed with sickening degree of love Sound: Sustained violin notes and lots of repeated German dialogue Playability: Bullets colliding with invisible barriers and inconsistent pacing can be frustrating, but lining up shots just feels right Entertainment: Watching the devastating carnage a...
