    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.

    With gameplay that can shock, amuse and satisfy in the same slowed heartbeat, Sniper Elite 4 is the best game in the series. While it graphics, story and characters can feel a little flat, the gameplay has always been the focus, and is so perfectly tuned to make the rest seem inconsequential.

    Sniper Elite 4 is one of those games that has something for everyone. Being a borderline recluse, I was attracted to the idea of playing as a lone wolf, but the multiplayer co-op Overwatch game was even better!

    A hearty improvement on Sniper Elite 3 that embraces freeform play, gets better in co-op, and most importantly lets us shoot things from very far away.

    Its stealth and action mechanics may be simplistic, but they're functional and regularly enjoyable. And the maps--with their impressive scale, open-ended objectives, and clever level design--coalesce these disparate systems into a creative and fulfilling whole. There are still some issues with AI inconsistency, a bland story, and some dull competitive multiplayer, but it finally feels like this series is living up to its long-standing potential.

    Sniper Elite 4 is a very safe sequel - it doesn't introduce revolutionary changes but expands and improves on the things that are well known. If something isn't broken don't fix it - that's a good approach. At the same time this game quite often looks like a copy of its predecessor - the same issues are mixed with some cool improvements. All in all, fans should be really happy.

    With the fourth entry of Sniper Elite, a franchise built on delivering on that feeling, developer Rebellion has created a well-rounded and empowering sandbox shooter.

    It really is testament to the gruesome enjoyability of those hyper gory killcams that, even after four games, the sniping continues to be satisfying enough to warrant a look in. Sniper Elite 4 doesn’t miss its target, then, but it plays things safe enough to guarantee the kill without any undue risks.

    A great game. Shocked to see such low reviews. People are complaining about the "Lack of story". Yeah, their is a basic tale and someA great game. Shocked to see such low reviews. People are complaining about the "Lack of story". Yeah, their is a basic tale and some characters look like they snook in from sniper elite 2 but Sniper elite 4 is not about story its about killing a nazi batallion before they know what hit them. I would highly recommend a pure stealth authentic difficulty playthrough as the reward is great kinda like soulsborne games. All in all sniper elite 4 is a great showcase of stealth in its purist form like hitman great fun and worth a buy. If you like any stealth games. Expand

    Sniper Elite 4 is simply a very, very good third person shooter, on which I spend a lot of time with great pleasure. Compared to other TPS,Sniper Elite 4 is simply a very, very good third person shooter, on which I spend a lot of time with great pleasure. Compared to other TPS, the game's arguments are:
    - the killcam. It is a great idea to make you feel (and enjoy sadistically) each and every sniper shot. I can't think of a better way to feel the impact of a bullet.
    - an excellent level design, with huge maps offering wonderful landscapes but also a LOT of different possibilites to advance through the levels and complete the objectives.
    - speaking of possibilities, there is almost always the choice to be sneaky or loud.
    - the difficulty modes authentic and authentic plus, that wipe most of the game interface and challenge you to go through the levels with the same level of information a "real" sniper has: no information about enemy status, no expected bullet impact point. You have to know your weapon.

    If I should give negative points there would be two small ones:
    - the levels are so big that it is a nightmare for completists to find all documents and all eagles. After 37 hours, I'm just halfway through the game because I've spent my time running after these...
    - the objectives are a little bit stereotyped: kill Mr X, destroy armory Y, find information Z... Nothing really annoying but don't expect to have to do exotic things ever.

    Very good and enjoyable shooter, highly recommended.

The game is not a failure, but not a breakthrough. I liked the shooting itself, the plot itself is boring. But the main disadvantage is that the game intelligence is very weak. I also remember my mission to kill chief among the Nazis on the island, but he just didn't show up. I went around the island several times, but did not find it.
    The game is average, but if you're a sniper fan, you're unlikely to be disappointed. But if you're not familiar with this, you may not like the game.
