    While the stealthy, ranged formula is still intact, those far more open maps allow for greater player agency and more systemic moments as you unleash hell from up close and afar. Improved stealth, an unoriginal yet satisfying XP system for cheap rewards and some ridiculously fun multiplayer modes make this a real series highlight that runs like a dream on Ninty’s hardware, but dumb AI, a rather boring storyline and a rather worrying focus on gratuitous gore all conspire to sully the experience somewhat. Having said that, there are few things in modern video gaming that are as perversely satisfying as popping a Nazi's testicles from halfway across a battlefield, so break out your M1 Garand and get reducing the Reich’s virtual headcount, because this game is well worth a look, despite its shortcomings.

    It’s still not as good as Sniper Elite 4, but years of patches and DLC have improved it to the point where this is a viable alternative for Switch owners.

    Sliper Elite 3 has aged quite well. This is a good version of the original game, with loads of content but also with all its shortcomings.

    Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition acquits itself nicely on Nintendo Switch. It looks good, it performs solidly, there's a couple of nice tweaks made for the Switch, and there's a wealth of great stealthy sniping content to be found within this compilation. Really it's a fairly standard feeling port, but alongside the V2 remaster, it's a good excuse to revisit the series and see how far it's evolved.

    Sniper Elite III Ultimate Edition is a satisfying stealth sandbox but only if you engage with it on its terms. This means being patient, learning to sit still among the trappings of war and only take your shot when you’re absolutely ready. That patience is rewarded at every turn with a meaty campaign, gutturally enjoyable carnage and the quiet satisfaction of a job well done. It’s not for everyone but for those looking for a unique shooter experience, Sniper Elite III Ultimate Edition on Switch is a damn good deal.

    Sniper Elite III Ultimate Edition is a well-done port of a game that is fun but flawed in its execution.

    In short, it will not be Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition on Nintendo Switch that will make you fall in love with the Rebellion saga.

    Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition brings the classic formula of Rebellion's franchise to Nintendo Switch, with all of its strenghts and weaknesses.

    It certainly gets things right and its performance, whether on the Switch screen or on a television screen, is very good. On the other hand, the enemy's AI displays some incomprehensible mistakes and the visual discrepancies on the maps make the experience less enjoyable than it could be, at the same time that the action moments in the game's semi-open world structure fall below par. A decent effort, nevertheless, and a game that can provide for some good hours of fun.
