Detailed X-ray Kill Cams
Players can see shots impact in brutal detail via the series’ trademark slow-motion kill-cams, be it through intricately rendered human anatomy, shrapnel-laden explosions, or merciless melee-based takedowns.
New theatre of war – Italy – with most varied environments of any Sniper Elite game. Mountains, forests, fortresses, beaches, fishing towns.
New traversal mechanics (climbing, shimmying, leaping and more) allow more ways to approach/kill/escape.
Set in the aftermath of its award-winning predecessor, Sniper Elite 4 continues the series' World War Two heritage by transporting players across the beautiful Italian peninsula, from sun-drenched Mediterranean coastal towns, to colossal Nazi mega structures, daunting forests and giddying mountain monasteries inspired by Monte Casino.

...well, Sniper Elite 4 fixes that. It keeps the open world aspect of its predecessor, but it improves upon it in every way. The locales here are beautiful and varied; throughout the campaign, you will go from the open green fields of Italy to a string of docks and warehouses at nightfall to sniping in a beautiful, lush forest. They went out of their way to keep the gameplay varied, not that they needed to. Getting headshots from 300 meters away and watching my bullet hit in slow-mo has literally never gotten old for me.
This game adds kill cams for traps and melee, so you can plant landmines and watch in glee as the explosions wreck the poor guy's body in mid-run. There are no more spawn problems like in SE3; I loaded up the first mission and killed the target within a few minutes from a high point from over 300 meters away, which was the farthest objective. It was SO MUCH FUN being able to pick off enemies from so far away, only to get to their bodies later and forget even killing them, since it was so long before. The maps are large and have multiple objectives and interesting collectibles. I took my time in the game and tried to find as much as I could, so each level took me a few hours. If you rush through, it's possible to beat the game pretty quickly; it doesn't force you to kill everyone or to even take your time, but doing so makes some objectives much easier.
Sniper Elite 4 also has upgrades you can unlock for your guns by using them in various ways, which was a lot of fun to see. I ended up using the starting gun all of the way through to the end of the game, since I'd upgraded it enough and found no reason to change. You can also switch grenades/traps/medkits out in your loadouts and build multiple loadouts, like the previous games. Though I rarely play multiplayer, I tried it out in SE4 and actually had quite a bit of fun. It's the type of gameplay where you can feel badass getting killstreaks (since it's harder to than in most multiplayer), but can also feel frustrated when you're part of the victim count in a killstreak. As you'd expect. being a sniper in a map full of snipers means you'll die very quickly even if someone sees you crawling through some grass.
Sniper Elite 4 also adds some new elements to the series, such as talking to characters for extra side missions in the level ahead. I respect their innovation, but I felt this was largely unnecessary. The game would have done just fine by giving you those objectives to start the level out with anyway, but it certainly isn't hindered by trying to give you more story content. It does throw some side characters in that actually have roles to play, but really, does anyone matter but Karl? :P
Overall, Sniper Elite 4 is fighting desperately to take over Sniper Elite V2's spot in my top ten games of all time list. I was expecting more great killcams in new locations...I did not expect them to up the ante as much as they did, and this game is better for it. This series on a whole is just so unique and fantastic that I'd probably continue supporting it even if SE4 was more of the same, but given its quality, I will be enthusiastically supporting more content for this and Sniper Elite 5, whenever that comes (and it better).
Update... As of this writing, I finally achieved the rank of "Elite 100" but it took awhile . Along the way I learned a lot about this game and how to keep it interesting instead of repetitive. I'm pretty much hooked on playing it in the "Authentic Hardcore" level of difficulty because of the greater point totals for each kill/destruction. Of course the challenges are that you have very little help while playing through each mission. There is no "Hud" help, no target " Reticle " (red crosshair), there are no targets visible or distance to them, no weapon load, health indicators hud, you have to use the bumpers to select weapons and ammo type, no scope adjustments, no binocular adjustments, but you do get the "windage indicator" as your only help. The only difference between "Authentic Hardcore" and " Authentic Plus " is that you get all the target information after a kill ( distance, type..liver,headshot, etc. assisted, high ground, weapon type and more) Authentic Plus gives you nothing except point totals when you complete the mission.
A good set of surround sound headphones will give you a good advantage because you can hear the enemies sneaking up behind you. Really need to be cautious and SAVE OFTEN!!
You will find yourself in some real tough situations that you may not want to repeat over and over again, very frustrating.
She upgrading weapons, it's best to do so in the "Cadet" level of difficulty as it will be much easier and faster.
Since this is an "Open World" or Sandbox" type game, you can play it in many different ways attack from many different directions,and use a variety of weapons to help with each mission. There are small maps like "Bitanti Village" where all targets are less than 200m. Then there are large maps like the "Rigilino Viaduct" where the "Stone eagles" are nearly 800m away!
After playing SE4 for some time now, I am pretty sure I've seen all the features, including near impossible shots, that "Rebellion" has to offer. What a great game. I'll keep playing it until hopefully they offer SE5!
