Personal rating: 4/10, worth playing, but only if you're patient enough.
-nice ballistic system: gravity, wind, your own heartbeat will affect your accuracy.
-impressive headshots, kinda reminds me about Fallout 3/NV, except it's not as messy.
-you can take a minigun and rush forward, but that's an easiest way to die. The game forces you to play as sniper, what a surprise.
-missions are pretty interesting. Most of the times you have to infiltrate the heavily guarded territory (alarm = game over), take a position (optional: plant explosives everywhere), then start shooting like crazy in everyone.
-cities are pretty much empty. Most of the building are permanently locked, so you cannot enter them and you can't get on the roof for a good sniping position. Although some enemies are able to do that. And those roofs that you can enter are pretty useless, because AI instantly notices you there from afar.
-and the worst part of this game:
AI is pretty much broken. You can snipe an enemy out of bushes with one single bullet from a great distance and enemies will instantly know where it came from. It feels like I appear on their minimap like a big glowing dot right after the shot from any weapon without silencer (i.e. anything other than silenced pistol, which has awful accuracy on medium to long ranges).
So after any shot all enemies on the map will be rushing towards you, no matter how well you hid or if you ran away right after the shot.
What was the point of creating a game where you have to play sniper, but you also can't do that, I don't know.
If not that, I'd easily rate this game 7/10, which is pretty good by my standards.
If you played first CoD and ever thought something like "But I don't want be here, I want to be on that hill with a sniper rifle", this game is definitely for you. If you liked Rogue trooper, you'll probably like this game as well.
It felt like a good game indeed, but I guess I'm not patient enough.
The last straw was the mission in a field with 2 enemy snipers, me and big ♥♥♥ gun that fired every 10 seconds or so.
I thought it was put there by devs to provide sound masking option for stealthy sniping enemy snipers.
So I counted seconds, then put a perfect headshot from ~200 metres in enemy sniper.
I could have sworn this was a sound masked shot - I fired the same time with that cannon.
But, apparently, second sniper somehow heard it and instantly saw me and started to shoot at me (I was ~300 metres away from him, crawling in bushes). So... ragequit. Very disappointing.
