I went into Sniper Elite V2 with one desire: Disfigure Nazis from hundreds of meters away. The game delivers on this core mechanic beautifully. While I would have preferred enemies with less superhuman vision and better stealth options, at the end of the game I couldn't recall a scenario I didn't enjoy. Sniper Elite V2 is a must for anyone interested in a smart shooter with an emphasis on gore.
Sniper Elite V2 is a solid action-sniper-game. The story about the V2 scientists is nice, well narrated and motivates the player to keep going. The graphics are below average, but ok and if that does not bother you, Sniper Elite V2 is well worth a try.
In any FPS I play (or SPS), my main objective is to obtain a machine gun and a sniper rifle if available. Any sniper game has me in line from the original Sniper Elite on the old XBox to this including the Sniper Ghost Warrior games. Here, the levels were vastly different from each other with some pretty difficult situations. Beautifully rendered, great sound and great fun watching the damage feedback. The DLC additions were super and despite the hugely tricky 'shoot that bastard before he gets to the train' level, I've re-played this game quite a few times and still get a big kick out of it. Bring on a new one... I'll buy it!
This game has playability you could quite easily complete this game over and over again. Plus with the great Co-op modes this game is spectacular. The X-ray feature is the best feature to be introduced to game for a long time. Plus I'm glad their was no Multilayer competitive game modes as this would have spoiled it.
Just pure Greatness
Sniper Elite V2 has includes many enjoyable and memorable sequences. It's just a shame that it these moments are so padded out. When Karl is at the top of a ruined church shattering skulls from 200 metres, the game soars, but sadly transitioning to these instances is too often a chore. Let's hope any third game in the series adds better stealth gameplay to complement the sniping mechanics and presentation that Sniper Elite V2 does so well.
I love this game. people fault the ai and graphics. the game rewards with satisfaction when it is played using sniping. yet it frustrates when you go in rambo style. This should be classed as a strength of the game. you have to learn how to snipe,to plan an escape, to plan the shot and the situation. yes it has faults, but for me, this has been the most enjoyable game i have played in a long time. at the highest difficulty this is a very challeging game. well done rebellion. small developers like this deserve a chance. yes it good be more polished but the essense of the game is top notch. buy it and stick with it. its great.
Elite V2 is a fun (if a bit clunky) sniper game. It consists of 10 missions long, but only lasts about 5 hours on Normal. Of course, it's more enjoyable with a partner. Multiplayer and a few extra co-op modes add to the longevity. The story is decent and there's a good number of collectibles. Also bullet drop can be enabled on the harder difficulties. While the graphics are solid, the screen tear is bad. Still, the X-Ray cam is a nifty feature that never gets old. If you want a Metal Gear Solid-type game, you might like this. 7.2 out of 10.
Sniper elite v2 is an enjoyable game, but not enough for me to give this an 8 or a 9 score or even a 10. This game has some good stealth mechanics but not very good mechanics for action sequences. Its hard to tell if this game is meant to be a stealth game or a third person action sniper game. In each level you have three different weapons, a pistol, a machine gun and of course a sniper. A trip mine, a rock and a dynamite ect. But the funny thing is, that you will barely use any of these weapons except for the sniper unless your playing on higher difficulties. I'm not saying that this game is bad, but there must be improvements, if you like snipers then get this game.
This game is really bad! The time between kills is really boring after seeing the same things every time. The highest difficulty is almost impossible! There are too many graphic errors and it is just a really bad game!
SummarySniper Elite V2 will be a modern take on the critically and publically acclaimed classic Sniper Elite for the current generation of consoles – revitalising a genre all of its own when it is released in 2012.
