    Offline, it can be decent but very challenging. Online, it feels a little forced since most maps are so small that you don't even need a sniper rifle to take out the enemies. On that note, online turns into Halo with everyone just running around grenading and machine gunning each other. So what's the point of playing this sniper game if you either don't need to snipe or Offline, it can be decent but very challenging.

So what's the point of playing this sniper game if you either don't need to snipe or won't be able to since everyone plays it like Rambo? The fact that your binoculars zoom in further than your scope should tell you the maps are just to small for this type of concept. Another one to steer clear of. Expand

    Sniper Elite makes headshots a grizzly reward that becomes addictive and, because the battle is always weighted against you, filled with air-punching satisfaction every time you make a connection. Bravo. [Nov 2005, p.96]
  2. What lies beneath its rather unspectacular veneer is a really well designed game that approaches the conflict from a different angle and provides a solid platform for a hugely entertaining game.

    The less patient and more action-oriented gamers might not warm to it so much, but if you're the kind of gamer that enjoys the chance to get a good sniping spot on your favourite online shooter, then this really is one game you must play.
