Reviews for Sniper Elite


The origin

PlayTyrant | Jan. 6, 2016 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »

This is the first Sniper Elite game, and it stands well even today. This is why: Despite of its graphics, the gameplay is a blast. Stealth is mandatory in order to stay alive, as when you pull the trigger the enemy is going to figure out your position right away, and they'll come after you. Don't take this lightly, because the enemy is actually a threat in this game, not like what happens nowadays. The sniping is incredible too, the feel is there, you're a sniper trying to find the perfect spot, angle, timing, and then, after the shot, disappear. Together with Sniper Ghost Warrior, this (and Sniper Elite v2) is the greatest sniping game.


The best sniping game I've played.

This isn't a game where you're invincible on some mountain picking off clueless enemies who can't figure out where you are. You actually have be wary about enemies, because, unlike many other shooters, they can actually kill you. Once you fire a shot they don't stand there scratching their heads wondering which direction it came from. You have bullets flying your way soon after and many of those bullets find their mark. You have to use stealth often to get past certain areas. Sometimes you may need to throw a rock to get a guard away from his post. You oftentimes need to mask the sound of you gunshot with the sound of artillery. The sniping is really solid. You must take in account gravity, windspeed, heartrate, among other things. Overall the game is quite enjoyable. If you're a fan a sniping games, go ahead and buy Sniper Elite.


The one and only sniping game.

Most shooters asks you to snipe an enemy like drinking a glass of water. Just aim the crosshair and shoot. Well, this is not the case, in Sniper Elite you have to keep in mind (almost) everything necessary to get a good shot - wind, gravity, movement, breath, heartbeat and other stuff. While the game is quite mediocre (the pure shooting is rather weak, level design is average and graphics are not that brilliant), this is the only game that makes you feel like a real sniper, along with Sniper Ghost Warrior which is, unfortunally, a shitty game.


Amazing but has Some Flaws

When Sniper Elite came out, it was amazing. There was no other Sniper simulator that could match Sniper Elite. The stealth is amazing and you have to wait for the perfect moment to move into position. After you are in your position you have to make sure everything is lined up before you take your shot and then wait for the right moment. The controls are clunky sometimes during moving and stealth. The sniping is top-notch and is the main part of the game. The graphics are mediocre and the sound is amazing. Highly recommended to any stealth and/or sniping fan.


Almost perfect

For me, this game is great in all respects besides that invites you to try a type of very underrated shooter from my pt of view on the world of videojuegos.Vale graphically that at this point has nothing to do with the great games today but for me, the graphics are not everything (and that in 2005 for my graphics are more than good) when an analysis of a video game and this is one such case. The surround sound is to remove his hat, the music that accompanies you in many times the game does not bother at all, is very realistic target when (you have to take into account factors such as gravity, wind, rain, pulse ........) and then a nice replay system of your best shots in slow motion so you can taste you yourself; artificial AI of the enemies is more than correct (for me), can attack directly or detours or some throw grenades while others attack you from behind and also talk to each other (a small handicap I see is that the dialogues are very scarce but hey let's not get quite strict). Weapons are varied but not, are more than enough, the maps are very well done and besides, there are variety of missions (attack a convoy, giving covering fire for allied troops, infiltrate a base, killing an officer etc ......) and also have a few "toys" on hand to make your life fácil.En short, very good game and also different from the typical mata-mata, recommend it to people looking for new experiences.


Sniper game that set the standards

I remember playing it for the first time when I got it preloaded on my PC. The only game where I had so many thrills, and anger moments because I couldn't land the perfect shot. This game is a master piece and it deserves to be played by all kinds off people. If you love playing with a sniper you will LOVE this game. Pure entertainment, hide and seek around, climb up to hights for a better view, a better angle, to take down guards, and go unnoticed, ah yes, that's the true meaning of a sniper game! Highly recommended, it's a must for sniper lovers!


Probably the best sniping game out there

This is an average port of the classic original Xbox (and PS2) title but still remains a solid, enjoyable sniper game (despite the older graphics and occasional glitch). This is not typical run-and-gun action, rather it is slow (in a good way), strategic, stealthy and tense. You do not run around with machine guns trying to kill the enemy. instead you lay low and use stealth to engage the targets. I like the Bullet Camera when you get a perfect shot and you see the bullet slow down and hit the target. Nice! If you do not have patience this game may not be for you The game provides a deep, rewarding sense of gaming satisfaction that you don't get with your typical FPS (which I am a big fan of also). Overall, a fun classic


The ultimate sniper simulation

Sniper Elite is an amazing and unique action game. The story is not so original, but the gameplay is very good: you will pass a lot of time hiding from the enemy and looking for a good position where you can use your sniper rifle. In Sniper Elite it's not easy to use the sniper rifle because you must consider many parameters(like the wind direction) before shooting. In the last level it will very hard to hit an enemy and the game will become frustrating if you are not patient. Sniper Elite is not probably the best action game every made, but it's the only one with this amazing simulation related to the use of the sniper rifle
