Conclusion: Sniper Elite has a certain difficulty and pace to it that usually caters to a select group of gamers. I can definitely see a Splinter Cell fan really getting into Sniper Elite . The subject matter is far different, and the sniping accent is unique, but the elements of stealth, gameplay difficulty, and general pace of play are reminiscent of many-a Fisher mission.
Excerpt: Game set around 1940s during WWII. According to the game, the missions were built on real missions. I just spent almost two weeks (outside of my day job) going through each objective with a team member...killing and sniping at long ranges. Long range sniping is realistic in that you have to aim higher for extreme distances. Some missions are tough...all challenging and it's addictive as hell.
