  1. Quite simply, Sniper Elite is one of the finest World War II era shooters that I have ever played.
  2. Only the best of the best will see the final missions in Sniper Elite mode, but for the rest of us, Rebellion has created a remarkable, beautifully brutal WWII game that's smarter than the usual fodder lining game store shelves.

    Wow, what a challenging game!! The sound, weapons, and all around graphics were awesome. I just want to know if they will come out with a second one or at least a sniper game that is just or more challenging? Full Review »

    Sniper Elite is simply the best World War 2 game I've ever played, period. I am playing it right now with my roommate in a co-op mode and it's totally awesome. The whole post war atmosphere, the music, the graphics, the sound effects, and most importantly addicting gameplay are all there. I would strongly recommend anyone to check this game out; it's definitely a jewel of gamming. Sniping is just awesome: my personal best record is 305 yard head shot (I had to aim about 6 notches above the targets head just to hit him) Full Review »
