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 definitely improves the rare but rewarding genre of open-world sniping. Being thoughtful about each shot instills a sense of companionship with your rifle, and we definitely felt an unexpected bond with our terrifying tool of death. Everything involving firing that rifle is fun, it’s just too bad the other elements in the game aren’t as impactful.
This game is fresh take on the shooter that really offers an escape from all of the CoDs and Battlefields out there. The graphics are top notch and the X-Ray killcams are really a nice touch to the game. There are a lot of bugs in this game which can sometimes detract from the experience, and the multiplayer does take getting used to. However, the single player missions are a blast to play through with lots of collectibles and the challenge modes,such as survival and overwatch, can be taken on with a friend or alone and offer endless replay value. This game is by no means perfect, but with a little work it can become the PS4's next great shooter
Opening up the levels could've been a great push forward for the brand, but it has brought a whole new breed of issues to the table. AI lacks perception, bugs show up all too often, and objectives are repetitive. The sniping, that still works well, even if untouched from the previous chapter.
If you can't get enough of dramatic, transparent shots of enemies getting shredded by sniper fire, Sniper Elite III has you covered in spades. If you're interested in more motivation beyond the glory of the kill, look elsewhere.
Though its stealth-based sniping gameplay can provide some exciting moments, Sniper Elite III is a decidedly mixed bag. Its abysmal narrative, outdated mission design, boring protagonist and weak non-campaign modes overshadow everything that it does well.
I never write reviews but ijust had to iwasent expecting this game to be so good the the stealth is great very satisfying the game is in every way better then last 2 it is definitely worth the money so go out and get it now

WAS THIS GAME RELEASED IN 1942?
BEFORE WE BEGIN:
I will preface this by saying that I have already played all the other Sniper Elite in the saga, including Sniper Elite 5, and that I am evaluating Sniper Elite 3 For Xbox One and therefore have no idea what it is like on Xbox 360 and what changes. Also, the evaluation includes Dlc’s of the game and only partially of the Multiplayer, being already dead in 2022.
The game presents itself from the start as a Sniper Elite set in Africa, with very short cutscenes and a very brief and coincidental tutorial. Essentially it presents itself as a version of Sniper Elite V2 with a different setting.
TO THE SCOPE:
Graphically, the game features warm and bright colors, too bright, so much so that the saturation makes lit surfaces blinding, distorting shadows and colors. The graphics and animations, for a 2014 game, are among the worst at the time; Let's remember that games like GTA 5, Castlevania Lord of Shadows 2 and The Last of Us were already out.
TO THE EARS:
The audio compartment of this game is truly pitiful, playing it with stereo headphones most of the game noises sound muffled and wrong; playing instead with surround headphones and the noises are completely off; every direction of the noises come from the opposite side of where they should be, and from completely wrong distances.
The game has pretty much the mechanics found in its predecessor, with some unnecessary items such as the flynt. The level design obviously does not reach that of the successor, nor does the well-designed linearity of the predecessor. There are 8 missions (12 with dlc), and they last about 15 minutes each, so the game is very short, easily completed in 3 hours.
The brand's usual co-op mode is present, plus there are the usual survival and multiplayer modes.
The game is easily completed 100% in about fifteen hours and it has many easy achievements. The only flaw are the game's two online achievements.
The game's dlc's are 4 additional missions, completed in less than half an hour, with very generic and forgettable missions, including the obvious target Fuhrer (among the worst in the saga in my opinion). The cost of the dlc’s is certainly not comparable to the time required for the completion.
BUT WHY 4?
The game really has too many, too many negative points, and I would like not to limit myself to a mere list of **** but it will be very difficult not to. Starting with the story, which is explained by cutscenes with an average duration of 4 seconds, showing silent scenes of the protagonist doing some action, poorly animated to boot. The physics of corpses, which with whatever weapon you use, will depart for space, giving rise to bugs like T-pose, ragdolls and so on. The sound system is painful, as explained earlier. The malfunctioning of the coop-single player, which requires the player to start the story over if he completes it in only one of the two **** AI of enemies that leaves something to be desired. The bullet feeling that completely loses the one built in sniper elite 2 and at the same time does not reach that of 4. The graphics, already dated for 2014 and the particularly poorly maintained lighting system. The setting is almost sparse and poorly maintained, with stock backgrounds and few models in general. Finally, the missions always look the same, with generic objectives requiring the player to get from point a to point b, defend an area, and little more.
The pros of this game are very few, the existence of co-op, which makes the whole game more fun, the music at the beginning of the game and the loading screens.
Buggy, short, pitiful story and characters, dumb ai.
Not only three quarters of the weapons are unlockable only by buying DLC packs 4 euros each, but they make fun of you by letting you use a couple of them during training. Of course they're vastly superior to the ones available in the 70 euros version.
It has some really nice scenery, africa is one of the coolest aspects of ww2.
The gameplay can be enjoyable but it's really linear.
