    Sniper Elite III's open level designs and objectives pack in more than enough variety and stealthy tension to counterbalance its thin story and shaky enemy intelligence, and experimenting with its explosive traps is almost as fun as popping skulls with a sniper rifle.

    Sniper Elite 3 comes back with many improvements since V2 and doesn't go worse in any characteristic or mechanic. Although some missions or the killcams may end up being repetitive, the game unfolds as a game which is fun playing, although the plot is nothing to be proud of. Co-op and competitive modes help expanding the game's lifespan. However, visuals may lack something to be truly next gen.

    For the few things that aren’t quite up to snuff, Sniper Elite III gets a whole lot right.

    Sniper Elite 3 is a marked improvement over its predecessor and provides a fun, tactical third-person shooter experience.

    Even though it doesn't meet the high expectations of the fans of the series, Sniper Elite III is a good title for the sniper lovers and for those who are looking for an unusual take on World War II.

    It's a shallow, crude pleasure, but the delightful disorder that's just around every corner is strong enough to overshadow an otherwise forgettable experience.

    But content is no substitute for quality, and while Sniper Elite III might have made for an engaging design document, it isn’t much of a game.

    Excellent sequel, that offer much large maps with more tactical approach.
    The Afrika set up give nice desert maps , with lots hiding spots.

    I seriously held off on this game because of all the mediocre reviews, then finally picked it up on sale on Amazon...man am I glad I did. ThisI seriously held off on this game because of all the mediocre reviews, then finally picked it up on sale on Amazon...man am I glad I did. This truly is a good game, the critics can shove it up their a$$. It is a total blast sniping people and the stealth is pretty decent with only a few minor hiccups. overall this game is worth picking up, especially now that it is fairly cheap at a lot of stores. I will definitely be picking up sniper elite 4 when it comes out. realistically I'd give it an 8.5, but considering the number of crappy scores that it definitely does not deserve, I gotta bump it a bit higher. one other note though, this is not a typical shooter, it is more of a third person stealth game, with some awesome sniping thrown in....

The gore is amazing as usual, but the story is bland and might as well not even be present. I give this game a 3.5/5. It is fun worth owning just at a discount, not worth the 60$ retail. So fine folks I leave you with a question as usual. What war would you like to snipe in next? I say Vietnam would be interesting with all the jungles and such. Expand

The cpu AI was pretty bad, along with some dumb glitches and game problems. For instance, i literally got everything in the game, but my progress bar still showed 73% completed? Multiplayer is fun but has its problems, especially when you try to do co op with a buddy. The slow mo sniping is awesome for awhile but eventually you find yourself skipping it. Overall the game has worth to it, but your not in dire need of picking up this title right away Expand

After those two hours of watching bullets blow people's faces apart the game becomes very boring as you find that the bullet time gets very repetitive. The game was alright, slightly above average at best.

    This game is well and truly terrible. there are more complex mechanics in a ps2 game. the AI is retarded and its insanely linear and boring. pointless
