    Sniper Elite III's open level designs and objectives pack in more than enough variety and stealthy tension to counterbalance its thin story and shaky enemy intelligence, and experimenting with its explosive traps is almost as fun as popping skulls with a sniper rifle.

    Sniper Elite 3 is one of the most taxing and rewarding games you will play this year.

    Sniper Elite III delivers a solid, less linear tactical gameplay than the previous episodes, but still suffers from some shortcomings.

    Sniper Elite 3 is a marked improvement over its predecessor and provides a fun, tactical third-person shooter experience.

    Sniper Elite 3 is a great title, probably the best in the market for the sniping fans. Unbeaten with regard to the competition, the game still shows several shortcomings, especially in the field of artificial intelligence, exacerbated by open world maps that amplify the problems.

    It's a shallow, crude pleasure, but the delightful disorder that's just around every corner is strong enough to overshadow an otherwise forgettable experience.

    But content is no substitute for quality, and while Sniper Elite III might have made for an engaging design document, it isn’t much of a game.

    The graphics are much better on the PS4 than its predecessor. Playing the game coop with a friend is a blast! If you like coop I highly recommend this game. Expand

    Excellent sequel, that offer much large maps with more tactical approach.
    The Afrika set up give nice desert maps , with lots hiding spots.


    Graphics look stunning and super smooth 60 fps.

    This game is much better than v2, i found Sniper Elite v2 to be clunky and slow, this one is more smooth, redefined and looks pretty awesome. Definitely lots of fun to be had. More bullet ballistics and skeleton shot kills are awesome. If you liked V2 you will love this. If you weren't a fan, id say rent it first or borrow it from a buddy.

    Story is throw away for sure, but there is one 4/10
    Graphics 8/10
    Gameplay 8/10
    Fun Factor 8/10

    Overall id give it a 8/10.

    SE3 is a definite step up from V2 and it's surprising how addictive the gameplay is. It is repetitive but refined (mostly) and the sniping is extremely satisfying. There are however a number of game-breaking bugs floating around in the code which were clearly overlooked due to slapdash work ethic or incompetent testers, perhaps both. Read the forums for more detail, there are a lot of problems...

    Shaky sound design doesn't help as you can hear enemies but are unable to pinpoint their location as the sound is essentially unidirectional and this is terrible for immersion. Game looks great and runs smoothly for the most part.

    This is a great game littered with imbecilic oversights, get it once it's fixed.

    Don't be fooled by the people giving this a 10... The game gives you a real sniper-feel and can be epic at times but is overshadowed by its long list of flaws.. Retarded AI, serious graphic issues, bugs @ glitches...
    You will enjoy this if you like sneaking around and picking of enemies slowly but when the **** hits the fan or when bugs starting popping up, which both happen at a steady pace, this games biggest flaws come to show.. Mediocre.

    This game is well and truly terrible. there are more complex mechanics in a ps2 game. the AI is retarded and its insanely linear and boring. pointless
