    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....

To sell such a game for the price, you(the developers)produces seems to be as a full game, and it seems that the usual addition. However, this is not the most notable minus. The game lacks dynamics and diversity. The levels are similar to each other, it's pretty predictable. The game easily can go without the use of sniper rifles(except for mandatory cases). Online modes died out pretty quickly. Hope to continue this franchise will be no more. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Where to start ? A comrade who declares himself a spotter but only actually spots one enemy during the entire mission ? Enemies who can be shot in the face, only to return fire and sometimes kill you ? Enemies who stand right in front of you and apparently cannot see you, but another can spot you from 50 metres away ? A pistol (Webley) which is described as having unmatched stopping power, yet doesn't stop enemies any better than the other two pistols in the game ?
    Couple these things with awful movement mechanics, reminiscent of the Drake series - though come to think of it, this probably applies to all third person shooters - and you have a pretty average game.
    Never mind the fact that this is called Sniper, yet you will have to kill more enemies with your pistol and SMG than the sniper rifles in order to progress through the levels..

    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
