    Welcome to Italy, 1943.

    Set in the aftermath of its award-winning predecessor, Sniper Elite 4 continues the series World War Two heritage by transporting players across the beautiful Italian peninsula, from sun-drenched Mediterranean coastal towns, to colossal Nazi mega structures, daunting forests and giddying mountain monasteries inspired by Monte Cassino.

    Covert agent and elite marksman Karl Fairburne must fight alongside the brave men and women of the Italian Resistance to help free their country from the yoke of Fascism, and defeat a terrifying new threat with the potential to halt the Allied fightback in Europe before its even begun.

    If his mission fails, there will be no Operation Overlord, no D-Day landings, and no Victory in Europe.

    While many will look to Sniper Elite 4 for the solo experience, anyone who has played previous titles will know that the multiplayer offerings are exceptionally enjoyable and Sniper Elite 4 takes this to the next level. Those playing as a team, with communication, will find it truly enjoyable, but that’s not to say those going it alone will be left disappointed. They won’t, for Sniper Elite 4 excels in many ways...Have we seen the year’s best shooter? Quite possibly.

    Standing head and shoulders above its predecessors, Sniper Elite 4 is Rebellion assuredly stepping up their game. Sure, the story at the heart of the campaign is still a bit duff, but who plays games like this for the narrative? I certainly don’t. What’s important is that all of Sniper Elite 4’s gameplay tweaks and improvements come together to create a package that feels solid and succinct, offering an experience that is enjoyably tense and rewarding. What’s more, it’s always thrilling lining up that perfect shot before witnessing its gruesome effects on your victim via the x-ray kill-cam. Perfection eludes it due to the small amount of screen-tearing and somewhat repetitive sub-objectives, but Sniper Elite 4 is essential for the armchair sniper out there looking for their next sure-fire hit.

    A bigger and better game than its forebear, Sniper Elite 4 is ludicrously good fun, proving beyond doubt that there's infinite appeal in blasting Nazis' bits off. Scope it out.

    Its stealth and action mechanics may be simplistic, but they're functional and regularly enjoyable. And the maps--with their impressive scale, open-ended objectives, and clever level design--coalesce these disparate systems into a creative and fulfilling whole. There are still some issues with AI inconsistency, a bland story, and some dull competitive multiplayer, but it finally feels like this series is living up to its long-standing potential.

    While Sniper Elite 4 may not be the most innovative of games, it wholeheartedly embraces all of the unique quirks the series has come to be known for. It respects its audience enough to know just what they want, and delivers exactly that: pure unadulterated carnage.

    Sniper Elite 4 is a well-rounded experience that delivers on multiple fronts. The campaign is flexible and full of satisfying objectives, and I enjoyed jumping into missions with a friend. The unique collection of competitive multiplayer modes rounds out Sniper Elite 4, giving shooting fans a game that’s worth a look despite its flaws.

    The latest installment in the Sniper Elite series is better looking than ever. On the other hand the gameplay feels a bit uninspired, mainly due to lack of realism and a really silly plot.

I love this game so much and am very glad I got it. Sniper Elite 4 has many fun missions where you actually need to be stealthy to win best. It feels very realistic and fun. The DLC for it called "Target Fuhrer" is a very good addition. Totally worth an extra $10 to kill Adolf Hitler. This game is highly recommended to anyone who likes shooters. Expand

Great fun getting that extra long shot, setting up booby traps for multi-kills, or ambushing and mowing down entire squads with SMG fire. You also get to blow up a lot of stuff. You can do suppressed fire kills for stealth or go loud and open up. There are different types of rifles to master. You might choose a bolt-action or a semi-automatic. There can also be a lot of pistol action. Shotgun action and achievements are available but I never pursued shotgun kills. I preferred the powerful Nagant revolver or TT-33 pistol or the FNAB for close work. All of the firearms can be enhanced as you upgrade them with successful use. There is a considerable amount of DLC available with this title including more guns, skins and four additional missions. The DLC is still pricey for Xbox One. You'll still pay $6 or $7 each for the additional missions and Gun/Skin packages. And not all of the skins are useable for Single Player. From Steam for PC you can get all of the DLC for one cheap price. Expand

    Sniper Elite 4 is very much a Sniper Elite game: it's main feature is the signature X-Ray Kill Cam, which is still going strong after numerous iterations. It features a bland, connect-the-dots World War II story featuring a staple of the series; Nazi super weapons. It has multiple open areas which feature long sight lines designed to encourage the sniper aspect of the game.

    But at the same time, SE4 adds a good many new and beneficial features to the series. The setting is vibrant, and the level design is very well done, with daytime and night-time missions at Italian towns and villas, and military bases and fortresses. Optional objectives add to the depth and replayability. There are a number of multiplayer modes, both generic to shooters and unique to this series with it's focus on long range combat.

    In sum, Sniper Elite 4 is a great game, well worth the cost of admission. If you like stealth shooters or sniper simulations, you should look into it.

Preso per il verso giusto è in grado di offrire una buona dose di divertimento grazie alle otto missioni di gioco, alle missioni secondarie e ai tanti collezionabili presenti in giro, oltre al ricco comparto multiplayer.

    Tecnicamente, tutto sommato, di buona fattura, può offrire la giusta tensione e il giusto divertimento anche per un tempo abbastanza lungo, ma è un gioco che fa delle fasi di studio e di attesa il suo punto di forza. Se invece preferite gli sparatutto ad azione compulsiva allora fareste bene a rivolgervi altrove, perché in questo caso, il titolo dei Rebellion non fa per voi.

There are 10 huge sandbox levels. Like the recent Hitman games, there is a lot to do and see in each chapter. Perfectly fine in single player, but cooperative campaign is the best way to experience it. Once again, there is competitive multiplayer and a few co-op modes including horde. Good number of weapons, options and difficulties. If you liked Sniper Elite 3, you'll love this. 8.3 out of 10 Expand

    I have played this game all the way through (without any of the DLC) on PC and then more recently also on Xbox One. This review is based on myI have played this game all the way through (without any of the DLC) on PC and then more recently also on Xbox One. This review is based on my experiences with both.

    I was already a fan of the previous iterations of this game and I mostly play first/third person shooters and this game did not disappoint.

    The graphics and audio are great. Characters move fluidly and seem to react in a realistic manner when shot and generally running around. I did not experience any issues on either console or PC.

    In this game you play as a lone wolf. A sniper behind enemy lines and must accomplish certain primary and secondary tasks to complete each level or mission. The missions and levels are fun and generally quite big and with an open world design feel, in the sense that you can take on any of the tasks in any order you wish. It is also up to you if you wish to play each mission stealthily or simply rush in all guns blazing.

    My only critique of the game overall is that in general terms you really do have to kill pretty much every enemy in the map to complete each level at least if you want to complete all of the secondary tasks too. But I will not complain too much as its so much fun to kill Nazis.

    Multiplayer also offers some added fun although I did not play much of that. Would have preferred if there was an option to limit the sniper role to one (perhaps random) player per side rather than having squads of snipers which can sometimes result in a lot of camping and makes for a boring match.

    Overall a good and fun third person WW2 shooter with a healthy mix of stealth and action. Highly recommended.

    Entrega que recicla muchas cosas de la tercera parte y que no me ha llegado a entusiasmar del todo.

    Completado en cooperativo en dificultad Tirador (Normal) para disfrutar y pasarlo bien, es simplemente un paseo, puedes ir corriendo por enormes calles abiertas repletas de enemigos que sobrevivirás sin problema. Las ejecuciones cuerpo a cuerpo están simplemente rotas y puedes llegar a pasarte un nivel entero a cuchillo. Mi compañero y yo simplemente íbamos a lo loco modo Rambo ON disparando a todo lo que se movía y rara vez era la que teníamos que reanimarnos si jugábamos con cabeza.

    La campaña dura muy poco (unas 5h entre dos personas muriendo unas cuantas veces por tonterías). Sobre la historia, no puedo opinar porque la mitad de las secuencias ni le prestábamos atención, pero supongo que en la línea de la saga.

    Recalcar que en Xbox One y Xbox One S cuando apuntas con la mira del francotirador en secciones con densa vegetación el frame-rate baja a cifras insospechados (hablamos de 15-20 fps tranquilamente), aunque el resto del juego va más o menos fluído salvo en zonas con muchos elementos en el entorno.

    Recomendado para pasar el rato, pero nada del otro mundo.
