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.

Pros
-The sniping mechanics are really good. The game takes into account bullet drop, wind, stance (whether you are crouching, laying down or standing), breath and motion.
-The game lets you tackle a level the way you want to. You are only given a waypoint and how you reach that waypoint is up to you.
-The levels are fairly open. Most levels have several big “arenas” connected by corridors.
-The A.I can be quite challenging...

Cons
-The A.I can also be very dumb at times. I saw a couple of times enemies just giving up and resuming their normal route right after they had spotted me or I had killed someone next to them
-Some minor bugs
-At times the enemy can spot you behind cover or behind boxes which can be frustrating when you have successfully sneaked past several enemies.

Neutral
-Rebellion has been updating the game with “advertising” for their other Sniper Elite games. Now at the start of the game there is a launcher that is just one advert for their newer game and when closing the game there is another advert that you have to manually quit.


I found Sniper Elite V2 to be quite an enjoyable experience. The gameplay is good and can accommodate any type of player (whether you run and gun, use stealth or anything in between), the story while not being anything remarkable is enjoyable and the mission structure is good enough to keep you playing. Sniper Elite is a fun game and an easy one to recommend.

They should rename this game to "Testicle Sniper V2"

Also, the guy in charge of the internal organ design (especially testicles) should get a raise. I've never shot this much male genitalia since freshman year is high school.

This game improved my memory skills by memorizing position of every enemy in game while playing on highest difficulty. Made it more realistic and that's how it should be, if it's played on lower difficulty it feels like you are supersoldier attacking armed peasants. I recommend this game especially for its coop, take a friend and conquer Berlin together!
