    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.

    The game is really amazing. For this type of game, if you like the type, it should have a way better score. There are a lot of improvementThe game is really amazing. For this type of game, if you like the type, it should have a way better score. There are a lot of improvement since SE3 (which is also a good game)
    But this one is a step higher. Playability is really great, maps are amazing ! You can play in really different atmospheres (night/day, village/military base...) really great ! The music is nice.
    ok, maybe not for 130$, but for 80$, it's really fair. The extension are really great too.
    Multiplayer mode is great

    Sniper Elite is good, old school fun. A very straightforward game, you are the sniper, sniping people from across the map. That's it, for theSniper Elite is good, old school fun. A very straightforward game, you are the sniper, sniping people from across the map. That's it, for the entire game, even the last mission is nothing much more than go here and shoot this. Which in my opinion isn't a problem at all, I love games like this, focused on nothing but the gameplay. The sniping in this game is fantastic, the X-RAY system is always good fun, I just wish there was a bit more too it. The biggest issue with this game is the repetition, which there is just way too much off. Every single mission is essentially the same, whereas in Sniper Elite 3, there was at least some kind of substance too each level. Also, for some reason, there have been changes made too the gameplay, like the removal of sniper nests. Which in my opinion, is the biggest misstep they could have made. Why remove SNIPER nests, in a game called SNIPER ELITE. It makes absolutely no sense, and the game absolutely suffered as a result. It feels like you have FAR less opportunity for long range sniping in Sniper Elite 4, versus all other entries in the series. This game feels MORE like Metal Gear Solid or Assassins Creed, than a proper Sniper game. The game wants you too be more up close and personal this time around, and make us the Welrod, or a pistol with silenced ammo, takedowns, and using equipment. Which I find infuriating, the stealth in this game is awful, I'm constantly spotted from long distances from enemy snipers, often when barely moving, or even attempting too stealth. And enemies have the best sense of sound I've ever seen, and can often spot you near instantly from even 50 meters away. Another major issue is how slow you move while crouched, it's way, way too slow. Slower than just about any other stealth game I've played, which is a problem because the enemies in this game are constantly moving and looking around, like their all hopped on Pervatin or something. The stealth in this game is totally broken. Trying to play stealthy is a waste of time, I found myself blasting my way through the enemies with my sniper rifle, and my secondary weapon far more often than I found myself trying too use stealth. But at the end of the day, this is still a very addicting, and exciting game too play. It's best too play it in small bursts, as the gameplay get's repetitive quickly, but it's still more than worth jumping on and playing. Expand
