    Welcome to Italy, 1943.

    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 Cassino.

    Covert agent and elite marksman Karl Fairburne must fight alongside the brave men and women of the Italian Resistance to help free their country from the yoke of Fascism, and defeat a terrifying new threat with the potential to halt the Allied fightback in Europe before its even begun.

    If his mission fails, there will be no Operation Overlord, no D-Day landings, and no Victory in Europe.

    Sniper Elite 4 is the best sniping game I’ve ever played, and is absolutely the high point of the series. This is a perfect example of what can be achieved if a developer understands what their game’s potential is, and never stops working towards it. Rebellion has made huge leaps forward with every new entry in this series, and they’ve finally reached a point where the results are flat-out incredible. I can only imagine the great things they’ll accomplish in the future.

    If you prefer your shooters to be more methodical or enjoy taking out enemies with pinpoint accuracy rather than just blindly rushing into skirmishes, Sniper Elite 4 will delight your trigger finger. Whether you’re a long-time series fan or someone just who wants to test their sniping skills, Sniper Elite 4 hits its target.

    With a revamped stealth system, improved AI, and massive sandbox-style levels, Sniper Elite 4 is hands-down the best game in the series.

    We’ve missed the WWII theatre, and Sniper Elite 4 is a rollicking good reason to get back to Nazi-blasting. Story isn’t amazing, but the joy of stealth-sniping – particularly in co-op – is Reich on target. [April 2016, p74]

    Sniper Elite 4 is a well-rounded experience that delivers on multiple fronts. The campaign is flexible and full of satisfying objectives, and I enjoyed jumping into missions with a friend. The unique collection of competitive multiplayer modes rounds out Sniper Elite 4, giving shooting fans a game that’s worth a look despite its flaws.

    Sniper Elite 4 is a good TPS, that has the guilty to not improve a lot from the previous chapter: sniping is good but the mechanics are always the same; on the other hand, the map and the exploration are quite good.

    Sniper Elite 4 is a game for stealth enthusiasts. Setting up the perfect kill from a huge distance after sneaking past a base full of Nazi soldiers feels rewarding and earned. However, the scenarios fall flat, and the scope of the game is fairly limited. Attempts to offer more options and extend its lifespan don’t really pay off, but it’s still satisfying to shoot someone’s eye out.

    I had seen that there were a lot of unnecessary low scores, without any damn rhyme or reason as to why there was a low score given, which isI had seen that there were a lot of unnecessary low scores, without any damn rhyme or reason as to why there was a low score given, which is frustrating to be honest... So, I figured I'd share my opinion on the game. As a sniping and stealth game, this game is god damn awesome. I loved the second game, but I didn't like the third one as much.

    However, with that being said, I find that SE4 is a blast! The option to go stealthy, guns blazing, the awesome signature killcams, the difficulty customization options... It's something fresh from a lot of these shooters we got now. The story is alright, I've only done about 4 missions so far, but the gameplay is well done! The campaign is entirely playable in COOP this time around, which is great and works really well! The PVP multiplayer is alright, much like other games, it's no AAA shooter multiplayer, but it's something to do while you take a break from the Story. Also, the COOP aside from the campaign COOP, is great as well! There's is Survival, and Marksman, Survival being up to 4 players, and Marksman being 2 players (one person spots, while the other snipes). I hadn't had a chance to try out the Marksman mode yet, but I did play a game of survival and it's probably what you'd expect it to be- survive a certain amount of waves of enemies. If you can grab some friends, or maybe join up with some strangers online, Survival can be really fun.

    One thing I'm not too fond of is that your character level is shared across all game modes, so it's one unified character level. I prefer having one level for PVP multiplayer, and the other for Single Player/COOP BUT this time around the game offers skills every 5 levels, where you get to choose between two skills, so I guess this way makes sense. Honestly, if you're looking for a game to pass time by, or have been wanting a good sniping game, this is it. It's got stealth, action, customization, ranking system, and multiplayer... well worth the money I'd say. Compared to its predecessors, this game is a vast improvement, and the levels offer a sense of choice in that you get to tackle every objective/side objective as you wish, in any order. It's very similar to the style of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. If that sounds fun to you, imagine having a friend to join you on the mission, having either of you'd stick together in an all out assault or stealth mission, or even splitting up with separate or the same play style. So... this game from me gets an 8, but unjust and unexplained reviews brought the games score down unnecessarily... It's a great game.

Its not often I feel compelled to complete all the 'non essential' objectives, but this game has me doing it on every map.

    The mechanics and default controls are great, and hunting down the enemy and patiently waiting for the best shot is very satisfying.

    But the only bad thing about this game is the multiplayer because no one ever plays it.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The game is a slow burner and I'm growing to appreciate the differences between this and SE3. I would have rated this a classic and more of a draw from other 3rd person tactical games but for a couple of little things missing that break the immersion. I want this franchise to be so much more given the period.

    1. The ability to adjust the HUD, in particular to remove the crosshairs for a smaller dot to enjoy those impressive graphics,
    2. To be able to switch shoulder - it's almost a given with some developers that this is necessary in a 3rd person game for your character to be able to 'check the corners' when scouting around walls, through doorways etc.
    3. The animations themselves - the weapons and Fairburne's character appear a little disproportionate. The 1911 and Grease Gun look huge in his hands, where his head looks tiny for his body, unless he's been comfort eating since Africa.
    4. Weapon modifications - to be able to switch different scopes or rely on iron sights. To add a supressor to a Sten... etc

    If these were incorporated into the next installment, the game would be close to perfect.

    so i bought this game i think some time after it was released only because it was really underrated and nobody talked about it that much
    this game is such a blast they just give you the main mission that you must do to finish the level and some side missions but they are optional they added a little mini base before every starting of a level so you can talk a little bit and then they throw you into a huge map give you a pistol a sniper and a side arm of your choice and that's it go to what ever you want you can go guns blazing and alert everyone that your here or stealthy and try to kill them one by one i prefer the silent way and they did improve the stealth take downs from the third game and now you can parkour and climb things not like assassin's creed but like normal climbing and they did add suppressed ammo for the sniper rifle but still the welrod is the only suppressed pistol not counting dlc and its **** you can barely point with it and most of the time miss the head that's that other then that they didn't change much from the third game just graphics and some improvements here and there oh they made the character a little more stronger i guess because there is a level where you find an rpg and just wreck some tanks but yea mostly the same like the third one

    My final score to this game is a 7-10

    this game is great and all but you can skip it if you want to it doesn't bring anything new to the table either then some improvements and changes here and there

    Pros:
    -Good looking Graphics

    Cons:
    -The Campaign: Basically watch a unskipable film for 10 minutes that looks like it's stolen from history channel, then kill some fools, that's the whole game, nothing interesting, nothing new, just another shooter.

    -Survival mode: most frustrating mode i've ever played, you just have to kill for 2 hours without dying, and game complete, nothing interesting.. why not make it shorter, harder? or if you're gonna go the 2 hour route for a WAVE mode how about checkpoints or atleast make it more interesting?

    -Gameplay: nothing new from older sniper games

    i don't recommend anyone to buy this.
