Reviews for Sniper Elite v2 + DLC Bundle
A fun rompSnotnarok | July 3, 2013 | See all Snotnarok's reviews »
I'm not all the way through the game, maybe 7 missions+ in, the other reviewers don't seem to enjoy the way the game functions, however the game is fun if you're looking for a fun shooter that does solid sniping with a variety of ways to adjust the difficulty. The difficulty adjustments allow you to change how bullets behave (bullet drop, breathing etc, you can increase how it effects shots or turn these functions off), how smart enemies are and the like. I didn't see a problem with the close range combat as that's something you should be avoiding and are granted the means of keeping distance: a sniper rifle, landmines,trip mines, rocks to distract enemies...if they manage to get past all this you have a SMG and pistol (one of them silenced if you so chose), the handling is only clunky if your heartrate is up.
The game is by no means a sim, you will be sniping gas caps on full on tanks and they somehow detonate.
If you have an interest in sniping in shooters this really is a good romp, it's not like there's a lot of options for games you are supposed to strictly snipe, but even then this game stands out and does well.

Avoided this on release having played the demo. Misses a lot of the features of the first and is way too action paced for a dedicated sniping game. The kill-cam is nice, punctuating the otherwise regulation 3rd person shooting. Got it on offer with a friend for the coop, making it a very good deal at the time, but I can't recommend it at full price!

Sniper Elite V2 gets halfway to what would have been a great game recreating the figure of the snipers. Everything about the sniper experience is nice: breath holding, realistic ballistics bullet drop and wind, the amazing slow deaths when we accurate shots... Besides, the elements that enhance stealth are also interesting, But the work made in other aspects are not as good: The close range shot system is totally unsatisfactory, the enemy AI fails and the respawn is quite unlikely in most situations, excessively linear level design. The game could have been tremendously effective and spectacular that key elements would have been solved. Sniper Elite V2 confirms that not everything must be a sniper shooting at 200 mettres away.
