Sniper Elite review (PS2)

HonestGamers
30 December 2005
  • Excerpt: I went into Sniper Elite expecting an action game with some nifty sniping elements on the side, and I couldn't have been more wrong. The Contra nut in me tried to blast right through the first level, but it was in vain; the game isn't designed for that, and its enemies are too tough for that. Hitman may encourage a methodical pace, but Sniper Elite demands one.

  • Conclusion: These graphical shortcomings are almost made up for, however, by the relatively large environments that you’re let loose in. You basically get set at one end of a large map, get told where your objectives are, and they let you decide which paths to take to get them, which is nice, at least in theory.

Review: Sniper Elite - PS2, Xbox

20 November 2005
  • Excerpt: In a market filled with run-and-gun FPS war titles, it's refreshing to see a title that features a heavy emphasis on long-distance gunplay. While you will encounter some close-range skirmishes in Sniper Elite, the majority of the game is viewed from the scope of your sniper rifle. Set in late WWII, your primary enemy is Stalin's forces (Hitler's army is heavily deteriorated at this point). Realism is everywhere in this game, depending on the difficulty you choose.

  • Conclusion: The shooting is handled fairly well, as long as you're using the sniper rifle. The shooting is challenging, but it's also pretty forgiving on the default settings. By default, the only variable that affects the trajectory of your bullets is gravity, so on the longer shots you have to aim slightly above your target. You can turn on other variables--like wind--if you want to. When setting up your shot your gun will sway slightly due to your breathing and heartbeat.
  • Pros: Headshots, Lengthy and challenging single-player campaign with a couple of really cool missions, Long-range shooting is fun and satisfying, Great sound puts you right in the middle of battle.
  • Cons: Bland graphics with lots of reused textures and characters, Hit detection is a bit off sometimes, The missions can take a long time, so if you have a short attention span you'll probably get bored quickly.

  • Excerpt: Gegen Ende des zweiten Weltkrieges kämpfen russische gegen deutsche Truppen um Berlin. Ihr müsst als amerikanischer Soldat versuchen, beiden Seiten einen Strich durch die Rechnung zu machen - allerdings nicht in typischer "Rambo"-Manier, nein, ihr schlüpft in die Garderobe eines Scharfschützen. Und wie man sich darin fühlt, lest ihr in unserem Test.

  • Excerpt: Phase de jeu très appréciée par une majorité de joueurs grâce aux sensations qu'elle procure, le tir de précision, fusil à lunette sur l'épaule, devrait enfin obtenir ses lettres de noblesse avec Sniper Elite ! Du moins on l'espère, car la version preview qui nous a été envoyée présente encore quelques défauts que les développeurs anglais de Rebellion devront corriger d'ici au 27 septembre pour que la balle atteigne bien la cible en pleine tête !

Sniper Elite - Review (PS2)

Konsolen-World
27 February 2006
  • Conclusion: Natürlich spricht Sniper Elite nicht jeden Spieler an. Das liegt zum einen an dem sehr taktischen Gameplay. Wer bei Sniper Elite einfach nur nach vorne stürmt, wird schnell den Ladebildschirm sehen. Das Spiel bietet zwar genügend Action, allerdings nur, wenn wir strategisch vorgehen. Der Spieler muss immer erst die Umgebung sondieren, bevor er handelt. Macht Ihr das nicht, so werden versteckte Scharfschützen schnell das Feuer auf Euch eröffnen.
