    Often in spite of itself, SEV2 is a really fun and captivating experience whether played solo or with a friend.

    I went into Sniper Elite V2 with one desire: Disfigure Nazis from hundreds of meters away. The game delivers on this core mechanic beautifully. While I would have preferred enemies with less superhuman vision and better stealth options, at the end of the game I couldn't recall a scenario I didn't enjoy. Sniper Elite V2 is a must for anyone interested in a smart shooter with an emphasis on gore.

    While the ground combat and close-up encounters aren't as tight as you'd expect from a common shooter, the sniper gameplay is front-and-center here, and it's delivered with top-notch class and authenticity.

    Sniper Elite V2 is an original third person shooter with some good ideas. A poor story and some gameplay glitches spoil an interesting experience.

    The truly patient may find satisfaction in meticulous planning, but it's too easy for those plans to go wrong. When they do, this is just a simplistic shooter. [July 2012, p.100]

    You really feel like a sniper in this game... that is, if you overlook the visual mediocrity, a weak story and the incredibly dumb AI. Overall, Sniper Elite V2 is a major disappointment.

    Sniper Elite V2 is a disappointing sniper game that doesn't stimulate you to act like a real sniper. The level design is poor and the enemies lack intelligence. Even the nice kill cam couldn't save the game from a poor rating.

    A game of truly challenging trials, Sniper Elite takes your lust for blood beyond the enemy line and into their skulls (or balls if you're so intimidated). As far as stealth games go from MGS, this one strives to be different, with it's incredible physics system, awesome x-ray kill-cams and level design it is truly badass and snipereffic! Expand

    Very fun shooter. The x-ray kill cams are cool. Graphics are good not great. The game is definitely worth a look if your in the market for a shooter. Expand

    This is a fantastic game with very well done levels. Bullet kill cams never get old either. All this game needs is for publisher 505 games to step up and add tdm for console versions. Expand

    Solid game, though somewhat rough around the edges. It looks and plays beautifully sometimes, with a lot of tension and danger. Other times it feels a bit mediocre and boring. The whole sniper thing is awesome and you do get the feeling that you are a lonely lethal weapon, ready to take on a whole army of nazis and soviets. The story is ok, not very engaging for my taste and the game wants to make you believe you are a legitimate war hero (although it never feels quite like it). But it's is a nice game, specially if you are into WWII. Expand

    Played this game on this console after I played the pc version and it's not even feeling as the same game.Graphics and physics are both of a different world so it seems...I'm sorry. Hail to the pc! Expand
