About This Game

Observe. Plan. Execute. ADAPT.

The latest chapter in the award-winning series, SNIPER ELITE 3 takes players to the unforgiving yet exotic terrain of North Africa in a savage conflict against Germany’s infamous Afrika Korps.

Stalk your targets through the twisting canyons, lush oases and ancient cities of the Western Desert in the deadly rush to sabotage a Nazi super-weapons programme that could end Allied resistance for good.

Use stealth, planning and execution to hunt your targets – whether human or machine. From signature long distance kills, to melee takedowns, distractions and explosive traps, you are as deadly up close as you are from afar.

It must end here. You are the turning point. Because one bullet can change history...

Key Features

  • Award-winning gunplay – Experience celebrated rifle ballistics honed to perfection. Take account of distance, gravity, wind, even your heart rate for intensely satisfying third person combat.
  • Expansive new environments – Stalk huge multi-route levels with multiple primary and secondary objectives than can be tackled in any order. Never play the same way twice.
  • Real tactical choice – Adapt to any situation. Use stealth, distraction, traps and sound masking . If things go hot, use the new Relocate mechanic to slip into the shadows and start the hunt again on your own terms.
  • Revamped human X-Ray Kill cam – The acclaimed X-Ray kill-cam is back and bolder than ever, including a detailed muscle layers, 3D mesh particles and the complete human circulatory system.
  • New X-Ray vehicle takedowns – See vehicles disintegrate in intricate detail with X-Ray vehicle takedowns. Multi-stage destruction allows you to take out armoured cars, trucks and Tiger tanks piece-by-piece.

Too short and too easy. Lacks sufficient amount of longshot sniping.

Also has a gamebreaking bug from over 2 years ago that destroys stealth-play. (Bug where enemies spawn in doubles taking up the same space and when you shoot one, the other one stays alive and gets alarmed).

I have been a gamer for over 30 years and rarely can I say that I have thoroughly enjoyed every game entry into the franchise. The Sniper Elite series fits the bill for sure!

Sniper Elite III is a great experience from start to finish with well thought out maps and challenges. The graphics, sounds, and storyline are all great. The maps are pretty big and non-linear based, which is great for a third person expirence.

The weapon upgrades are ok, without getting too tedious. The challenges are fun, especially in coop mode. The coop mode is an excellent idea for games like this.

Some downsides are: shooting over walls can be bit buggy, the AI are way too perceptive to your location after making any noise (It's still a major improvement over SE2, however.) Also, players are too rewarded for close range combat.

Multiplayer is fun and challenging. It's a bit slower paced and methodical than most shooters, but that's the way it should be.

This game is all around one of the best I've played in the genre. Rarely do try to gather as many achievements as possible in a game, but this I just couldn't put down.

Im looking forward to next installment.

Awesome fun, and very satisfying when you make a difficult shot. If you like sniper type games I recommend it without question.

Planning a cunning attack against unsuspecting Nazis is exciting and watching in X-ray how their balls explode as bullet penetrates it is most satisfactory.

The fact that the words "realistic" and "simulator" were used in the advertising of this game makes me wonder what the world is coming to.

There's not a lot different between this and Sniper Elite 2, aside from graphical enhancements, and being set in the desert rather in Europe.

The problem here is variety. No matter how good the game strives to be, there's always a point where it's just more of the same. Unfortunately SE3 is mining vein as SE2 was.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the game, I'd say it's a good game, and I recommend it, even at full price, but if you found SE3 tedious after a while, the same is likely to happen with this one.

Easily one of the best games that I've played, and by far my favorite sniper game. Nothing like shooting a guy in the groin and watching everything explode. It's hilarious in the most morbid kind of way.
