Sniper is a 4 act game, each act takes about 1.5 to 2.5 hours to compete, depends on your difficulty level and attention to detail. There are several secrets hidden on each act, so this adds to a small amount of replay value. The game allows a player to choose from several difficulty settings, which does not make the AI any smarter or better, rather, it helps the Sniper (player) line shots up accordingly and lets the player decided when its time to try the next difficulty level. The AI is not very intelligent, most of the time they wont react to a bot that has been shot in the head, and is standing 5 feet from them. However, it helps the player run around the board a little better. *remember, real snipers wait hours or even days to take a single shot or no shot at all* In addition, you switch between a gunner and sniper through the game several times, the gunner tends to be a little harder because you will quickly lose health and their is very few ways to regain it. The health bar will always rise back to 30 out of 100, and most of the time you are given 5 health packets to replenish yourself, so use them wisely. The game also has a silence hand gun and grenades, they are used sparingly when I played, but can be useful depending your tactics.
The multi-player part of the game has several game modes, Team Death-match, Death-match, and VIP.Read more ›
My first impression was the details of the graphics, comparing with CoD MW2 this game is not as realistic but in my opinion it has a decent high definition graphics engine that permits the immersion of the gamer, so not a big deal for me. During one of the first campaign Acts within an Oil Rig I used an M4A1, even it has the quick aim feature encountered in CoD MW2 is not as precise (more recoil, as seen in CoD Black Ops released videos), so I experienced a sense of scattered shooting, probably more realistic (never used one in real life), just different not bad at all.
I enjoy the sniping scenarios, and what it requires: stealth, compensation, wind velocity, sneaking, etc. This game has it all, during campaign, in the rifle's reticle appears the distance and a tiny red dot for compensation effects when aiming at a target, at first I had a basic clue how to compensate but the more I played the easiest became for me understand the ballistic principles (similar to the ones encountered in the sniping mission with the Cap Mc Millan of CoD MW when with a Barret .50 one has to shoot Zakharev in Chernobyl). This important BEFORE going to Multiplayer as the red tiny dot is not present there, you have to compensate by yourself. Believe me, is really difficult spot decent snipers during Multiplayer, and there is no kill-cam, which, in my opinion adds reality to the game experience and I love it.
Of course sniping is all about stealth techniques so the Multiplayer is a HUNTING in that sense the amount of kills are much less than the ones obtained in CoD MW2, in that sense I believe this is more a simulator than a game, cool for me. In general I like this game, since I have not experienced any flaw with it in my Xbox 360 console I recommend it for MATURE audiences.
