3.0 out of 5 stars had potential, May 16, 2012

= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sniper Elite V2 - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
I thought it was only me until i saw the comments on "youtube"....the game has flaws: mainly in that its a sniper game and despite performing kills in stealth and traversing silently, somehow the soldiers up ahead are aware of your presence and all hell breaks loose. Tried playing different strategies to avoid detection but to no avail. The sound effects are poor (echoes like you're in a hall) and restarting a mission from scratch after completing multiple objectives (avg game time 35-45 mins) because you switch off the PS3 is nonsense. Overall the initial fun factor dies exponentially when you encounter these and other subtle shortcomings which have you feeling "Is this the best they could have done?" People enticing you by saying "its for real shooters" is one aspect of the realism brought about by not breathing and focusing etc. but that's the only high-point of the game (in my opinion), so don't let that be the deciding factor for purchase.

This post is BS. I played this game on elite (hardest level) my first go round and was very impressed. Yes the enemy can be alerted if you don't time shots properly or walk out in the open. Keeping against the walls and mainly crouching the whole time are the keys.....When you play on elite the Wind is a factor and makes shooting VERY challenging as the game progresses. I've played all the CODs and battlefields, for the price, you can't beat it. For the SHOOTING realism with the rifles it is the best ballistic correct game i've played IMO. Some values may be off a little but taking into account that the first main weapon (springfield 1901 30-30) uses the 30-30 round, and I have shot this round myself many times, its pretty spot on. Don't expect the BEST GAME EVER but if they make a Sequel I will be one of the first to pre-order.
