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.

I've only played 2 and 3 to this point, and very much enjoyed the mechanics of 3 more. I definitely enjoyed the classic feel of SE2, but the quick keys and other controls on this game made it very enjoyable. The storyline was great, and I felt a little cheated once I finally made it through the end. I was surprised how much easier the end of this game was compared to the end of SE2, but I also replayed the level so many times for the accomplishments I think I just memorized it :) It's just that good!

Enjoy, it's a keeper I'll play again.

Do Sniper 1 pro V2 teve uma enorme evolução. Agora do V2 pra este, muito pouco.
Mesmas armas, sons, controles/movimentação. Claro, gráficos melhores... afinal, alguma coisa tinha que mudar né.
Algumas armas básicas, outras por dlc... e skins somente dlc. DLCs caras pra ♥♥♥♥♥♥ e que raramente ganham promo.
E já to vendo que o Sniper 4 vai pelo mesmo caminho.
Enfim, se tu gostou dos primeiros... e tb joga os nazi zombie, pegue na promo.

Fantastic game, love it. The kill-cams are graphic, but often very entertaining. My favourite FPS by far. Can't wait for SE4!

Did you like FarCry3 and 4? Was your favorite part of FarCry3 and 4 the sandboxy sneaking into outposts, tagging enemies so you could see them through walls, tossing rocks to divert their attention and hiding bodies? Then this is the game for you! It's like that but with much bigger outposts. The one big difference is this game does not have FarCry's alarm disabling system; so far as I can tell. I am currently on the 4th mission and having a great time.

The missions are big, sprawling and take a long time to complete. Fun stuff!

My biggest gripe is the DLC. Nickel & diming us for weapon selections. Instead of earning them in the game by completing objectives, they are pay-to-unlock. Not as fun, but more profitable for the publisher.

Another minor negative is the character you play, Gristled Snipermen. I think that is his name. His voice sounds like the baddest of bad-asses in the most generic way possible. It's almost cartoonish how bad-♥♥♥ he sounds. It would have been nice if the character was given some more nuance. A flaw, maybe even a touch of a sense of humor. It doesn't detract from the game, but his performances can cause minor eye-rolling.

I have emjoyed playing this game, but it has always had issues. Two months ago, I couldn't even open the game, it froze at the start...then I managed to get it working (reinstall plus cache cleaning), and now a couple of weeks later, it has uninstalled itself...I was playing it this morning. I am not waiting another 7 hours for it to download, this game has turned into a huge waste of time with it's issues.
