Sniper Elite III PS4 Review

Console Obsession
17 July 2014
  • Excerpt: With how popular sniping is, it’s really surprising how few games there is based around killing from afar. Still, when it comes to military shooters, it’s the Call of Duty mould that most developers seem to strive for, which makes series’ like Sniper Elite all the more welcome, as it’s a series that still manages to feel fresh. Like the previous games in the series, Sniper Elite III takes World War II as its stage.

(PlayStation 4 Review) Sniper Elite III

The Entertainment Depot
14 July 2014
  • Summary: Despite the encouraging switch from linear areas to more open battlefields, Sniper Elite III isn’t as strong a title as its predecessor. Rebellion rarely takes advantage of this greater freedom, the game’s most significant addition to the series, and instead shifts the dynamics in the opposite direction, drawing players into a by-the-book stealth title with plenty of close combat that is the antithesis of the sniper’s role.

Expert Review

9 July 2014
  • Summary: Whenever I wasn't setting up a shot, emptying my lungs, and pumping a sharp metal bullet through the thick skull of an unsuspecting enemy soldier, I was frustrated with Sniper Elite III. Not because the surrounding mechanics are broken or the levels are poorly structured, as the subsidiary elements of this third-person shooter are, for the most part, serviceable.
  • Pros: Devilishly satisfying slow-mo kills, Level design that encourages creativity, Colorful vistas are impressively improved over previous iterations
  • Cons: Dull stealth sequences, Uninspired story, Broken matchmaking

  • Summary: Sniper Elite III is a third-person action game with a heavy emphasis on stealth action and sniping. Thankfully the levels are large and the player always feels in control, even in the frequent indoor portions. Gamers looking to run and gun will be disappointed, but everybody else will get a kick out of this solid World War II shooter. Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on.

Rebellion Misses The Mark

Game Informer
1 July 2014
  • Conclusion: Concept: Blast German soldiers in the face from hundreds of yards away with brutally detailed X-ray kills Graphics: Impressively detailed at a glance. Upon closer inspection, enemy soldiers move like clunky puppets Sound: Lots of German and Italian chatter mixed with annoying sound effects that play when you’re exposed Playability: The core sniping mechanics work well, but clumsy stealth mechanics and a variety of bugs sully the experience Entertainment: Shattering...

Sniper Elite III

GAME Group plc
5 July 2014
  • Excerpt: On most video game battlefields, the sniper is either a nuisance or a savior, depending on which side of the fight you're on. The life of a sniper isn't an easy one, as he or she relies on stealth, patience and accuracy to get the job done. Rebellion Games' Sniper Elite III serves as a prequel to Sniper Elite v2 , as players once again fight as OSS sniper Karl Fairburne, who finds himself in North Africa outlasting the Nazi threat.

Sniper Elite 3 Review

5 July 2014
  • Conclusion: Sniper Elite 3 is an idiot savant of a game, excelling in one specific area while being almost obtuse in many others. I've praised it a lot, because I love playing it despite its shittiness, but Rebellion needs to know they can't ride this one gimmick forever. If it wasn't for that one brilliant thing it does -- Slow-Mo X-Ray Bullet-Cam -- it'd be the sort of game only your dad might pick up in a bargain bin sale, years after it released.
