    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.

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 a massive improvement over the previous iterations. The graphics are much more polished and the animation quality is moreSniper Elite 4 is a massive improvement over the previous iterations. The graphics are much more polished and the animation quality is more fluid and dynamic. There is a lot of influence from The Phantom Pain in terms of gameplay.

    Sniper Elite 4 is essentially a stealth / shooting game. It requires a lot of patience, skill and imagination to infiltrate and complete missions like a professional. On less manly settings you could get away with shooting your way through barely, but not on skilled difficulty settings, you will be killed easily if you're caught in a gun fight.

    The game areas are now much larger so tagging enemies for environmental information becomes very important for perfect stealth. You will have to study enemy movements precisely, finding ways to exploit the environment to your advantage. Such as masking your rifle shots, causing explosions, making objects fall, taking out commanders for detailed enemy positions and getting those all important kill cam shots.

    For sniper fans there is a lot of custom options to make shooting as skilled as you want it to be. From bullet drop, wind adjustment and different loadouts. I think Sniper Elite fans will be very happy with this new adventure, if you have never played and like stealth games you should really consider getting this.

    Pros
    Better graphics
    Better animations
    skilled gameplay
    large levels
    varied custom options
    Open to experimentation and exploration
    Collectables
    Killing Nazi's.

    Cons
    Typical story
    Some weapons behind a paywall

    The X-ray are even more awesome this time.The map is bigger and offers more options for players.
    You can play the game in multiple styles,like stealth or guns and blades in.
    The PVP multiplayer is kind of casual and nothing special.
    But the co-op mode is very fun,it is fun to mess around the battlefield with your friends.
    Overall,this is an enjoyable game filled with plenty content and I recommend to everyone,

Con una gtx 980 enEstamos ante un juego bastante correcto gráficamente pero que requiere buena gráfica en resoluciones superiores a 1080p. Con una gtx 980 en 1440p y filtros optimizados según nvidia lo mueve a 60fps pero cuando te ocultas entre la vegetación baja drásticamnete a 30fps.

    Tenemos varios niveles de dificultad pero recomiendo los dos últimos (dificil y extremo). Empecé el juego en el más complicado y si bien mueres a menudo y es bastante exigente, es asequible jugando con cabeza y mucha paciencia. Lo malo de este nivel es que no cuentas con minimapa, ni con indicadores de objetivo ni, lógicamnete, ayuda al apuntado, por lo que hay que ser muy pro para atreverse a disparos de más de 100m pues hay que tener en cuanta unos factores a la hora de apuntar, ni tampoco marcado de enemigos a través de los prismáticos. Después de dos misiones completadas, decidí bajarlo al nivel inmediatamente anterior y todo esto que comento ya aparece. Sigue siendo exigente y mueres a poco que te confíes pero, bajo mi punto de vista, se hace más disfrutable. Si lo juegas en difícil, recomiendo quitar rayos x porque el minimapa ya indica los enemigos que hay en esa zona sin necesidad de haberlos marcado.

    La campaña está formada por varias misiones con sus objetivos principales y secundarios, que nos habrán dado los personajes con los que debemos charlar antes de iniciarlas. Aconsejo completar los secundarios antes, porque si vas a ir a saco a por los primeros, la misión finilizará. La verdad es que éstas, sin ser excesivamente numerosas, sí que pueden durar bastante, siendo raro que bajen de una hora si te detienes a completar objetivos, coleccionables, registrar a los cadáveres para recuperar munición, muertes sufridas y dependiendo de la dificultad y la paciencia que tengas para ir matando sin que te detecten. En cierto modo, las mecánicas se repiten en todas las misiones, con riesgo de resultar repetitivo. Lo cierto es que hay un algo que te hace disfrutar y que la experiencia jugable sea altamente satisfactoria.

    Contamos con el entorno para poder eliminar a los enemigos. En algunas misiones aprovecharemos el estar cerca de grandes cañones que al disparar ocultan el ruido de nuestro rifle (el modo ejecución es salvaje y espectacular, ver cómo destrozamos el órgano del nazi de turno es acojon****). En otros escenarios podremos manipular artefactos que provoquen ruido regularmente con el mismo objetivo (dichos artefactos podemos localizarlos a distancia con los prismáticos y marcarlos). A pesar de todo ello, no es ni mucho menos un paseo militar. No siempre contaremos con la posibilidad de camuflar el ruido o de tener munición silenciosa para el rifle, por lo que deberemos jugar con las coberturas y la maleza, así como hacer uso de los prismáticos para marcar a nuestros enemigos y ver sus pautas de vigilancia. Con esto, podremos ir acercándonos en modo sigilo y matarlos con la pistola con silenciador. Pero claro, o estamos muy cerca de ellos y disparamos a la cabeza si no tienen casco o entre la cara y el cuello si lo tienen, o necesitaremos varios tiros y como tardemos mucho en recargar o fallemos alguno, el enemigo dará la voz de alerta y vendran a por nosotros. En este punto, podemos ir a saco con el francotirador o en modo rambo y dar uso a la ametralladora o incluso seguir jugando con las coberturas y matarlos con la pistola con silenciador ya que, si lo hacemos bien, es posible que la alarma desaparezca si conseguimos no ser vistos. Francamente, es bastante satisfactoria la experiencia de eliminar a los rivales en modo francotirador camuflando el sonido o con la pistola ya que ése es el objeto del juego, aunque el modo rambo puede tener su punto llegado el caso.

    La IA es algo variable. Me explico. Hay misiones o lugares concretos dentro de éstas en las cuales, al dar la alarma la CPU, se comporta bastante bien y muy competente, al punto que ves en el minimapa que pretende envolverte para atacarte desde distintos flancos o por retaguardia moviéndose constantemente entre coberturas. Pero en otros casos, sin ser mala, puede llegar a ser un poco simplona. Otro aspecto negativo es que el ángulo de visión del enemigo puede llegar a ser bastante bajo: a pesar de la alarma general, con poco que vayas agachado, el enemigo no te detecta cuando se cruza contigo a la carrera y tú estás pegado a la pared o tras la puerta. Ocurre, lógicamente, dentro de edificios o búnkeres.

    El juego va perfecto sin observar errores, fallos, bugs, glitches... pero en el último tercio he visto algunos soldados (pocos) tratando de caminar a través de paredes o vallas o se fundían con elementos del escenario, cosa que te saca de la experiencia.

    Otra pega. El juego permite cambiar el aspecto y hacer mejoras en armas y en el personaje. La profundidad en este campo es bastante escasita y lo cierto es que no notas mucho la diferencia.

    4 definitely expands and improves over 3 in several ways. But for some reason the graphics make it look much worse than 3! The game is4 definitely expands and improves over 3 in several ways. But for some reason the graphics make it look much worse than 3! The game is running great on Ultra, the pc can certainly handle it, but a lot of textures are low-res and blurry. Quite disappointed in the graphics quality of 4! Expand
