City Interactive’s Covert Op Should Remain Classified
22 March 2013
Conclusion: Concept: Boil down the intense act of sniping into a below average, by-the-numbers affair
Graphics: Muddy textures, an inconsistent framerate, and bad water effects distract from the action
Sound: Get ready to listen to a too-cool-for-school sniper spewing out phoned-in military lingo
Playability: Waiting for a secondary reticle to compensate for wind and elevation is annoying.
Excerpt: Crouch. Aim. Hold your breath. Squeeze the trigger. Watch your target collapse into a lifeless clump of bone and flesh. The deathly satisfying mechanics of sniping may not excite the usual run-and-gun crowd of first-person shooter fans, which is why sharpshooter missions are typically used to spice up a war game, not served as the entrée.
Pros: + Gameplay offers a good mix of mission types given the inherent limitations of sniping., + The CryEngine 3–powered environments are beautiful in spots…
Cons: ? Couldn’t multiplayer have shipped with more than two maps?
Summary: Who doesn’t love the idea of being a sniper? We all like running and gunning, loading up with mags for your MP5K as you pepper opponents with mis-aimed shots in the hope that one in ten of your shots hit the mark and brings down your enemies. Being a sniper is so much more different, one shot, one kill, you miss and nine times out of ten you die.
Pros: Is really quite immersive at times., On hard it can feel very realistic.
Cons: Lack of any real multiplayer..., Graphically poor., AI is to mechanical.
Excerpt: There are two kinds of people in this world: those who like being a sniper and those who despise it. Okay, so it might not be quite like that, but for fans who like using such virtual weapons in military games, there isn’t exactly a wave of games dedicated to your love of zooming down that scope and picking off someone from a distance.
Excerpt: Egal ob Sniper, Scharfschütze, Recon oder einfach nur Camper – Soldaten, die sich auf den Kampf aus großer Entfernung spezialisiert haben, gehören heute zu so gut wie jedem First-Person-Shooter dazu. Im Multiplayer oft als eigenständige Klasse und in Singleplayer-Kampagnen gibt es in der Regel mindestens einen Punkt, an dem euch das Spiel ein großkalibriges Gewehr in die Hand drückt und euch sagt, dass ihr doch bitte dem Terroristen auf dem anderen Kontinent eine Kugel...
Conclusion: Dessa forma, podemos concluir que os jogadores que desfrutaram de Call of Duty ou Battlefield não vão se encorajar muito, mas se você realmente gosta do simples fato de estar na pele de um sniper, vai encontrar alguma diversão por aqui.
