    Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a solid remaster that allows you to experience the campaign, DLC levels, and visceral, satisfying shooting the game is known for again in 2019. Some aspects of the game have not seen much of an upgrade if any upgrade at all, with the game's AI and the audio system showing its age. Despite that, the game is an enjoyable way to hop back into Rebellion's classic franchise.

    In short, even after seven years, Rebellion hits the target again.

    Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a good remake of a very good sniper simulator. Too bad the graphics are still not up to par with the state of the art; the game though is still a lot of fun and a good choice for the series’ aficionados.

    Even if Sniper Elite V2 Remastered shows the signs of age, it’s still an enjoyable sniping game. There are some problems (AI is far from being perfect), but fans of stealth/sniping games should give it a look.

    Rebellion's stealth shooter is still enjoyable when it comes to sniping, but the gameplay feels outdated.

    The Bullet Cam and some of the missions still hold up pretty good today, but, overall, Sniper Elite V2 shows its old age, an age that the remastering was not able to take back.

    Sniper Elite V2 Remastered isn’t a terrible game, but it feels outdated and completely outclassed in 2019. While its x-ray exterminations are still appealing, it’s just about the only factor making up this package that could turn one’s head in today’s world. Simply put, there are just so many better experiences you could have through the scope of a sniper rifle, including those sequels that make up the very franchise in question.

For those who have followed the series since the beginning, V2 Remastered does look much better and play much better but whether you wish to play through the same adventure again is a matter of personal taste. Just be aware that the gameplay is exactly how you remembered it, a far cry from the sequels. Expand
