4.0 out of 5 stars A fresh take on action/stealth and World War II December 28, 2005
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Every year there's comes a sleeper hit that somehow seems to get overlooked by the gaming public. In 2003 it was Freedom Fighters. In 2004 it was Ubi Soft's Beyond Good & Evil. This year that award goes to Namco/Rebellion's Sniper Elite. With a fresh, new take on the World War II shooter, Sniper Elite looks to bring some new ideas to the action-shooter genre while creating a new one in the process.

In the waning days of World War II a lone sniper trained by the OSS has crossed into Berlin ahead of the allied push. His mission; to prevent the Soviets from obtaining the technology to build an atom bomb and giving them the upper hand in the arms race.

The first thing you notice about Sniper Elite are it's graphics. While not as advanced as games like God of War they portray Berlin as being a desolate, ravaged city torn apart by war. There's alot of very dull colors which gives the landscapes a very bleak and forboding look to them. It really gives the player a sensation that this is a city that has been abandoned. The environments are pretty large. There are several ways to approach your objective and sniping points are laid out through the cityscapes. There's also lots of cover. Burnt out vehicles and bunkers dot the streets. And you'll need it as you do your best to stay alive.

In Sniper Elite your best weapon isn't a gun. It's your brain. This is what can be called a "thinking man's stealth game". You have to constantly pay attention to your surroundings and plan out every move very methodically. What's the best route to your objective? That depends on the situation. How many guards? Thier patrol routes? Even the wind plays a factor. You also have a variety of other tools at your disposal. Such as grenades, time bombs, and trip wire mines which can be quite useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snipe! November 1, 2005
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
True to it's name, this game is a fun sniper-based shooter. You start in 3rd person view following behind your character, you use your binoculars to spot the target, and then switch to the sniper rifle scope. You have to control your breathing, stance, adjust for wind correction, bullet drop, etc.-- everything is considered. You have a variety of tools, weapons, etc. to help you as well. (Place TNT down and then snipe it at a distance to destroy tanks for instance)

It is VERY satisfying to sight in on a sniper at long range and have it end in a great headshot.

Mostly you'll use stealth & sniping skills, but every once n' a while the enemy will close in on you for close-quarters combat.
Also note that this game is rated M.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood, sweat and a few tears... December 23, 2005
Platform for Display:PlayStation2
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's been 6 days since I entered Berlin. 6 days of looking down the scope of a Gehwehr 43, or just recently a Russian Tokarev SVT 40. I've blown up tanks, set traps, taken many an enemy out and still I'm a long way from going home. As I wipe the sweat off my brow before looking down the scope again, let me tell you about the world I've entered; The world of Sniper Elite.

On starting the game, I realised they drop you right in it from the start. Berlin, early 1945. The Germans are in retreat, the city in tatters. It's a race between the American's and the USSR to find the plans that Germany have for creating their own nuclear weapon. This is basically the start of the cold war. You are a lone sniper operating for the O.S.S (the precursor to the C.I.A), Your job is to stop anyone who gets in your way and to make sure the Russians don't end up with the plans.

It's almost overwhelming at the start of the game, and while it's the rule of the game, it's good to have a look around the place and get used to moving, changing stances, etc. Make good use of cover, the binocular view and the scope view before moving about, because in the wasteland that has become Berlin, you'll need your wits about you.

Bomb craters will open up as you're walking down the street with a huge explosion, the crack of bullets and the whine of projectiles whizzing past your ears are but a few of the ambient details in this game. You'll also be speaking fluent German or Russian as well, depending on how close you get to the enemy. One standout scene for me is the first level just as you move off, an aircraft trailing smoke and burning flies over head and crashes behind you somewhere in the city.

The shooting part of the game is extraordinary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has a few flaws, but overall superb June 10, 2006
Platform for Display:PlayStation2|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Good points:

1. Lots of missions. 28 in all so the replay factor is great. The missions are surprisingly varied too, considering your trapped in bombed out Berlin the entire game. Obviously a lot of thought went into the missions by the designers. I appreciate that.

2. Four levels of difficulty. The highest level is very challenging. Even the 2nd highest level is tough.

3. Great focus on sniping and strategy. This is not a run and gun game for your 9 year old. It is slow moving, you have to think and plan your way through the objectives. Kids probably won't care much for this game.

4. There are many moments in the game when fast action is required. It isn't all belly-crawling through rubble by any means (although I admit there is a lot of belly-crawling).

5. MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL is that you can save your progress at any point in the game up to 7 times per mission. This keeps the frustration factor low. I hate those games with long missions where you get killed near the end and you have to start all over from the beginning over and over again. Some games increase difficulty levels by simply decreasing the number of saves per mission. Not in Sniper Elite. Difficulty is increased by better AI(artifical intelligence) in each level.

Flaws:

1. Your movements inside buildings, especially going up and down stairs are jerky and glitchy.

2. Berlin is completely deserted except for soldiers. There are no civilians at all. Any human you see is a target, except for a very few German resistance forces on a couple missions.

3. Completely unrealistic arsenal that you carry around.

You have to be silent and quick to shoot. It's a good video game and keeps you on your toes. Because of some of the language I don't recommend it for anyone under the age of 18. Read more
