    On second glance, it's an amazing sniping experience available at a budget price. This is a game that shooter fans who are willing to push their skills and patience to the limit absolutely shouldn't miss.

    Sniper Elite III is a very good game overall, but this Ultimate Edition is not quite as definitive or complete as it should have been.

    While the basic gameplay mechanic gets it right, the lackluster story and cement-headed AI keep this title from greatness.

    A great choice for those that are looking for a different kind of action game, one with stealth and gory sequences. Despite that, this version add plenty of new content, but not every DLC that has been released for the original game, which is awkward.

    It's a good choice if you missed the original release, but whoever has already played the game won't find here any good reason to buy again.

    Sniper Elite III is still a solid and fun sniper shooter, and the Ultimate Edition includes all the DLCs. What a pity they're short and dull.

    Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition is a very cool bundle, consisting of: the game, Save Churchill DLC, multiplayer maps and more. Worth it if you haven't bought Sniper Elite 3 yet.

    You can probably snap this game up very cheap nowadays, so that makes in interesting. However, if you have the choice, I would strongly recommend to buy Sniper Elite 4 instead. Not only does it look a bit better, but it has more variety, and fixes a number of annoyances of Elite III.

It gets boring after the first mission when you've seen the X-Ray shot about 10 times and after that, it is no longer impressive and becomes repetitive. It does not play smooth and is nothing special other than a cycle of dramatic sniper shots. Expand

    Sniper Elite V2, was a dark horse. It seemed like a Call Of Duty ripoff but was actually a pretty fun and challenging sniper game with decentSniper Elite V2, was a dark horse. It seemed like a Call Of Duty ripoff but was actually a pretty fun and challenging sniper game with decent mechanics and good level design.

    Sniper Elite 3 is definitely a "more of the same" game. It's actually a prequel rather than sequel, but the story is weaker than SEV2 and this time around the levels are fairly void of anything memorable unlike some very standout levels in SEV2.
    That being said, the Sniper Elite series is very fun if you like stealth sniper style games. The games bring me back to days of Spec Ops on the original playstation, running around alone with limited ammo and mostly relying on a sniper rifle, being stealthy and knowing when go on the offensive. I sorely missed these types of games, so this fills a void.

    The game format is essentially, 3rd person to move around levels and position yourself for shots, then a first person scope view for gunfights. There's the ability too play somewhat stealthily in these games, but there's also gunfights and assassination missions.
    The main differences between Sniper Elite v2 and 3 is that th levels are now more open and less linear. This dramatically improves the stealth element of the gme as you are no lngr forced into situations where you can't sneak around or flank enemies, plus it means you can psition yourself nearer atmospheric noises to mask your sots. However I feel the sound masking was developed more with SE2 as it had levels with events such as fireworks or the bell of the church which really continued through and was a key feature of those levels. There's not really anything like that in SE3 it's just a mechanic in the levels you can choose to find and use for some kills but not all.

    SE3 also fixes the issue I had with SEV2 with manual saves, allow you to no longer suffer trying to redo a 3 wave gunfight where you'd get to the very last sniper and die because you couldn't flank tham or position yourself properly, and then needing to restart the entire gunfight. Checkpoints were few and far between. SE3 allows you t save whenever you want, in addition to the checkpoints, which seem more frequent anyway. Although this also makes the game far easier as you can essentially save after every kill meaning there's no risk for any action you take.

    SE3 also adds takedowns, so you can takedown an enemy by sneaking up behind them, which is a very welcome addition. The silence handgun is still there from SEV2, but I prefer the takedowns for when yoou manage to get right up to an enemy without them seeing.

    Another thing to mention is the control scheme is better in SE3. The default scheme in SE2 was unpleasant and there was only one other control layout choice available, which allowd you to aim the scope with L2, but meant you lost sprint on L3. In SE3 yu can sprint with L3 and aim the cope with L2.
    SE3 is designed to be a superior game with non-linear levels, improved controls, and more focus on the Xray bullet cam (which can start to get annoying after every kill, but you can press a button to skip them which wasn't possible on SEv2). However it also lost some of its charm with level design, the levels are less memorable and aren't as creative in terms of design.

    One last thing to mention is I hate that you can't turn down the volume of the controller speaker in game. It's crazy loud and makes noises constantly. Your only option is to turn off the speakers from the PS4 for all games and not just for this game.
