- Summary: Sniper Elite 3 continues the story of elite OSS sniper Karl Fairburne during World War II. The title takes players to the unforgiving yet exotic terrain of WWII’s North Africa conflict in a battle against a deadly new foe.
Jul 4, 2014Sniper Elite III continues the Sniper Elite saga based on the WWII theater of operations. This time, the hero operates in Africa against Afrika Corps (the powerful mixed German and Italian commando Corps) that ruled most of the Northern areas of Africa. The game's world is more open than its predecessor, SE III follows the same game mechanics and it features better graphics than Sniper Elite V2. It looks (and plays) fantastic even on the already dated XBOX 360 hardware. Recommended for those who seek pure WWII action and all people that loved the previous games of the series.… Expand
Jul 1, 2014If you enjoyed V2 then you should enjoy this game as well. Slight improvements were made, and some features were changed to create a more tactical shooter, but all in all it is the same game in a different setting. The story and characters are nothing interesting, but the gameplay is fun. This game is funner if you play it stealthy instead of going in guns blazing, which you can get away with no problem. Bullet-cam is as awesome as I remember it being in V2, with options to change how much you see and how fast it is.… Expand
Jul 20, 2014Very disappointed with this game on Xbox 360. I was blasting through the missions when my user profile became corrupted (this is a system file on xbox). I contacted Sniper Elite 3 support and they told me to clear the cache which didn't work (because the user profile was corrupted!) So I had to start all over again with this game. Boo. Still isn't patched at the time of writing. I can't get a refund because I downloaded it from Xbox Live Games on Demand. What is it with game companies now - can't they be bothered to test things properly and just rush out any old guff? Anyway, the game was enjoyable and far less linear than previous versions. Big improvement in many respects, yet with an extremely bothersome bug in it.… Expand
