About This Game

In the dark days of the end of World War Two amidst the ruins of Berlin, one bullet can change history…

Sniper Elite V2 is an award-winning and authentic World War II sniping experience. You are elite US sniper Karl Fairburne. Parachuted into Berlin amidst the Germans’ final stand, your mission is to prevent Nazi V2 rocket program technology from falling into the hands of the besieging Red Army. You must aid key scientists keen to defect to the US, and terminate those who would help the Russians.

Take advantage of authentic weaponry, learn how to stalk your targets, fortify your position, set up the shot, use your skill, patience and cunning to achieve your mission. Stealth gameplay is the key as you find yourself trapped between two desperate armies in a race against time.

Watch as the celebrated ‘bullet cam’ from Sniper Elite returns, bloodier and more gruesome than ever – skilful shots are rewarded with a slow-motion flight of the bullet, then targets are graphically rendered in X-Ray as the bullet enters and destroys your victim. Organs shred, bones splinter, teeth shatter, as the true impact of the sniper’s bullet is brought to life.

As World War Two ends and the Cold War begins, every shot counts. Use it wisely.

Key features:

  • Sniping Simulation - Sniper Elite V2 features detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, taking into account gravity, wind, velocity, bullet penetration, aim stability and more. Guaranteed to provide players with the most realistic simulation of military sharpshooting yet available.
  • X-Ray Kill Cam - Amazing ‘kill cam’ technology showcases what really happens when a bullet enters an enemy’s body, allowing players to see hearts and lungs tear, livers burst, and bones shatter.
  • Authenticity - The game features authentic World War II Berlin locations as well as vehicles, weapons such as the Springfield M1903 the Gewehr 43 and the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30, and uniforms modeled after the original versions.
  • Use the Environment - The slightest changes in the environment need to be taken into account to move into the perfect position, observe the quarry, take the shot and slip away unnoticed.
  • Sniper's Choice - Players will often find themselves facing a choice of the perfect shot that leaves them catastrophically exposed or a more difficult route that means they can continue their mission.
  • Multiplayer Game Types - Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Team Distance King, Distance King, Team Dogtag Harvest, Dogtag Harvest and Capture the Flag.

Good campaign, good storyline, graphics are great and the settings that take place in this game are good. One major problem is the multiplayer is kind of clunky feeling, with very less people playing daily. If you want to use this game for practicing to snipe in other games, by all means go ahead, but don't expect the multiplayer to be so great. I would rate this game 7/10

This game is not a bad game, and its built on a solid premise, but theres quite a bit that the other reviewers do not tell about. So please read this knowing that it only means to highlight some things about the game.

First off, this is a sniping sim played through a third person shooter lense, but it is not "Realistic" its "Arcade" The most you can have is wind and gravity, for many gamers this is much more than their normal sniping experience, but it is still very watered down. The game plays in one of two ways, either its "Stealth mode" where you get a little indicator that bombs are falling and can cover the sound of your shooting, or you basically play zombie survival with enemy soldiers, every ten feet a new wave comes. Its not very sniper-y, youll spend most of the game in the streets of Germany, where no one with half a brain would stick around (as in no sneaking into buildings or picking your path, the game forces it on you)

Another important point is there is almost no sniper versus sniper strategy. You die in two shots from an enemy sniper, so poke your head out, take the shot, learn where they are, wait 15 seconds for your health to come back, peek back out and empty your clip in their direction. If theres more than one sniper, youll die in the two shots and have to restart the spot hoping that the random sniper spawn changes. The enemy snipers also spawn at predetermined times, so you cannot look through your scope at the next area looking for enemies, you literally HAVE to walk in and get shot at to find them in almost every situation.

Again, the game is not bad, its a great sniper game for people who think basic wind and gravity are "Hard". The story also is not bad, it's a ww2 setting so it's hard to stand out but it manages to keep ones attention.

Overall, it's good for a few hours of fun. The sniping, especially in the stealth portions, is fun, and the killcam part makes it more exciting to get crazy kills like Richochets or long distance headshots. That being said, the distances you shoot at with the rifles you use, in reality, would have very little if any bullet drop.The longest shot i took thus far was about 5 blocks away.

Review is still positive because what the game promises is there, and it is fun! But keep in mind what you are buying, this is not a hardcore snipers game, this is an arcade style ww2 shooter. When the game wants you to be stealthy, it lets you know, when it doesnt, you dont have the choice to be.
