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?
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.
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.
