    I did not play this game all the way through, as I didn't find it enjoyable enough to warrant spending the time required to do so. Player movement feels strange, and weapons other than the sniper rifle seem badly implemented. Given that the camoflage system is unclear at best, the lack of useable automatic weapons is a problem. The graphics are nothing special, often look very bland, I did not play this game all the way through, as I didn't find it enjoyable enough to warrant spending the time required to do so. Player movement feels strange, and weapons other than the sniper rifle seem badly implemented. Given that the camoflage system is unclear at best, the lack of useable automatic weapons is a problem. The graphics are nothing special, often look very bland, and bear very little resemblance to Berlin, with the exception of a few set piece levels based on landmarks such as the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate. I certainly doubt that a resident of pre-war Berlin would be able to find his or her way around this recreation, as the developers claimed in several interviews. If you have a PC, then you are much better off with something like Hidden and Dengerous 2. Expand

    With four skill levels, awesome co-op multiplay, online play, and a ton of game-modifying options, Sniper Elite belongs on your hit list. [Nov 2005, p.80]
  2. So while Sniper Elite is tense and fairly riveting, it's never exciting or completely satisfying. The game feels like a chore to play through and the concept is just too limited to be truly enjoyable. [PSW]

    If you're prepared for the deliberate nature of its gameplay, Sniper Elite is a rewarding way to fight WWII from the comfort of your couch. Just keep in mind the prerequisite degree of patience.
