Excerpt: A lot has been made out of the awesome looking x-ray kill cam in Sniper Elite v2 and the bragging rights are totally justified. This bullet cam is just the tip of the iceberg of features that follow up to original Xbox title and what could be a game hinged on one jaw dropping moment has become a stunning title that ticks a lot of boxes.
Conclusion: Bombing run where you have to collect parts to your vehicle to get away whilst under enemy fire & overwatch where 1 person plays as a Sniper and the other as a spotter and you have to work together to complete objectives. All in all Sniper Elite V2 is a decent game. Despite it's few flaws there is a really good game here with some replay value but nothing that really stands out.
Summary: If you get into the spirit of the game the single player campaign is quite enjoyable. And if you can get past the difficulties connecting the multiplayer isn’t bad either. Especially if you’ve got a buddy who thinks like you do. Bring on the DLC!
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.
Summary: I will be honest and say that I did not approach " Sniper Elite V2 " with particularly high expectations yet what I got was a rather enjoyable game which may be far from perfect yet has enough enjoyable gameplay moments to be considered a game worthy of a play through.
Summary: Sniper Elite V2 is neither on the sim side of the scale nor on the arcade side, instead resting somewhere in the middle. While this definitely causes some frustrating moments, and is bound to be disappointing to those wanting a more stealth-oriented offering, it serves up some decent action.
Excerpt: When Sniper Elite came out a few years ago I was in the middle of the online first-person shooter craze that seemed to be sweeping the world with Counter-Strike, Medal of Honour, Battlefield and a host of other games. It was a real change in pace to play a game that demanded stealth and thought to complete the missions, and similar to being a sniper in Counter-Strike without the added bonus of people calling you a camper and otherwise being nasty to you.
Excerpt: Sniping games seem to form their own sub-genre in the crowded first person market. From the disastrous Sniper:Ghost Warrior to the original Sniper Elite, it is a genre that does not seem to have too many supporters. Nonetheless, Rebellion Software has seen it fit to revive it’s cult classic series and bring it to the next generation.
