Sniper Elite V2
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
In the dark days of the end of World War Two amidst the ruins of Berlin, one bullet can change history…
Sniper Elite V2 is the eagerly-awaited sequel to the highly-acclaimed Sniper Elite, giving gamers the most authentic World War II sniping experience available.
You are elite US sniper Karl Fairburne. Parachuted into Berlin amidst the Germans’ final stand, your mission is to prevent Nazi V2 rocket program technology from falling into the hands of the besieging Red Army. You must aid key scientists keen to defect to the US, and terminate those who would help the Russians.
Take advantage of authentic weaponry, learn how to stalk your targets, fortify your position, set up the shot and use your skill, patience and cunning to achieve your mission. Stealth gameplay is the key as you find yourself trapped between two desperate armies in a race against time.
Watch as the celebrated ‘bullet cam’ from Sniper Elite returns, bloodier and more gruesome than ever – skilful shots are rewarded with a slow-motion flight of the bullet, then targets are graphically rendered in X-Ray as the bullet enters and destroys your victim. Organs shred, bones splinter, teeth shatter, as the true impact of the sniper’s bullet is brought to life.
As World War Two ends and the Cold War begins, every shot counts. Use them wisely.
Sniper Elite V2 features detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, taking into account gravity, wind, velocity, bullet penetration, aim stability and more. Guaranteed to provide players with the most realistic simulation of military sharpshooting yet available.
X-RAY KILL CAM (not available in Germany)
Amazing ‘kill cam’ technology showcases what really happens when a bullet enters an enemy’s body, allowing players to see hearts and lungs tear, livers burst, and bones shatter.
The game features authentic World War II Berlin locations as well as vehicles, weapons such as the Springfield M1903 the Gewehr 43 and the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30, and uniforms modeled after the original versions.
USE THE ENVIRONMENT
The slightest changes in the environment need to be taken into account to move into the perfect position, observe the quarry, take the shot and slip away unnoticed.
Players will often find themselves facing a choice of the perfect shot that leaves them catastrophically exposed or a more difficult route that means they can continue their mission.
Great Game to play with friends.CaptSunshine11 | Sept. 5, 2014 | See all CaptSunshine11's reviews »
I absolutely love the multiplayer and co-op portion of this game. I've had many hours of fun with friends. The single player on the other hand is pretty dull. Every mission is "Stand far away from everybody and kill them".

Sniper Elite V2 is third-person shooter game. You're elite sniper Karl Fairburne and you need to prevent Nazi V2 program from the hands of the Red Army. You begin with the tutorial how to hold your breath and snipe perfect. How to sneak and complete your missions. In sniper elite even the wind and gravity matters to the bullets fired from your guns. Every time foes come there is something, and if you find that something you can kill them faster than normal. Also you can place traps, you'll have to predict you opponent movements. When you shot someone in the head it'll x-ray show how you killed him. The graphics and sounds are perfect. Smooth gameplay and good AI.

This is the type of game fps I look for when I want to play with friends, with a cooperative campaign with 2 players (For me the best number of players in cooperative campaigns such games) this game is something that assures you that you are spend hours on the computer, in addition to this, has different game modes and single-player game (that seeing his great co-op campaign is not as important) out of it and going into the gameplay is not my type of game though sometimes I enjoy very much, I appreciate the creators to have the players in mind and give it away, I hope the sniper elite III since I think that will be a great game. 8/10

The reason why this game is so good is solely down to its shooting mechanic and the A.I.
Let's talk about the shooting mechanic. The sniper bobs up and down and you need to concentrate your character's breathing to make it more stable. There is bullet drop. There's a kickback on your rifle and you can't just snipe while running.
Now let's talk about the A.I. The A.I. is very good. If you're just going to stay in one place they will find you sniping from there quite quick. They are also good at aiming, meaning that getting your character exposed can mean instant death.
Then there's also some nice little add ons. Such things as for example a kill cam that shows you all the injuries that your bullet caused to the enemies insides. You can turn in to the minimum, or you can turn the kill cam to the maximum and enjoy the glorious inside explosions with pretty much every single kill.
There's also a co-op mode, that's very fun. You are essentially going trough the same single player story, but your friend will most likely enjoy sniping beside you.
This is how real shooter games should be made. If you're interested in realism in your combat games you should definitely pick this title up.

Ive played this game on both Xbox and Pc , and i will have to say it is one of the better ww2 sniper games. The Killcam would have to be the biggest plus of the game with the realistic mode giving a real challenge , but overall i felt the AI was a little lackey and the missions felt repetitive
