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.

  • 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.

First time I write a review here, so I might as well write it proper.

As I see it, Sniper Elite falls between a number of chairs. It tries to have it's cake and eat it too, and suffers greatly due to it. It's part stealth, part action and long range focused. Problem is, there is no good way of planning attacks, the gameplay is linear and the sheer number of enemies makes this game in a much poorer condition than it could have been in.

The offset is pretty good. There aren't alot of games that focuses on the role of the sniper/marksman out there, and so far nobody has really suceded in recreating that aspect of combat. The game tries to come off as realistic, having it's balistic model as one of it's most adverticed selling points. And to some extent, the bullet physics are great, exept bullets can't penetrate anything, even a wooden fence can stop these bullets. Only thing it actually does penetrate are foilage and bodyparts... the latter it doess rather well.

The levels of the game does not invite the player to plan their attacks, as I stated earlier. In addition, there is far to much focus on close quarters combat for this to really take the art of sniping seriously. Snipers and marksmen are mainly covert operators, and they are usually only used for high value target and recon, not as the one man army portrayed in this game. The gameplay is repetative, unintuitive and plain booring in the long run, and it's far from as interesting as it could have been.

It does, however, provide some entertainment if you have nothing else to do for 30 minutes, but as a game to sit down and enjoy for an evening, it doesn't serve at all.

Hope that you'll find this review helpful, comments are welcome.
