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.
Rifle ballistic simulator!kauppinensb | June 12, 2015 | See all kauppinensb's reviews »
I have myself a liitle bit experience with sharpshooting. This game has its sides. If you play it as stealth game and try to sneak trough enemy patrols and lines, this game tends to be very frustrating. You have been spotted nearly always and if you have get yourself to middle of enemy positions, there is enemy everywhere. And you die always. But if you sneak only a little to get yourself to good firing postion, and try first to locate enemy snipers or heavy weapons like tanks, mgs and armored vehicles..then try to estimate distance. And remember wind. And then festival starts:) Rifle ballistics and physics are like sweet as sweetrolls. If you play with "Sniper Elite" difficulty as I played, there is usually some guys coming to your behind if you can't spot them and eliminate them with your rifle. Remember always set traps and mines. Graphics are good, while antialiasing is some king of fxaa stuff, but if its set to medium it looks ok. When you are familiar with key mappings, game is very pleasant to play. It's not close quaters action game, it is long-distance planning and action game with some kind of strategy elements. Not best game ever because there is not very much freedom but I think this is worth of playing many times. Storyline is ok, there is many epic moments and few very irritating moments. Play with sniper elite difficulty first time with no assistances, but i'd recommend to lower (to veteran or something) enemy smartness from custom settings, because it makes stealth approaches nearly impossible. I'm waiting sales -75% for sniper elite 3 ;)
Shoot Nazis in slow motionZaggeta | May 13, 2015 | See all Zaggeta's reviews »
Nazis have always been the best trope for shooters. They are undeniably the go-to villain as, like zombies, people feel very little guilt in killing their representations. Sniper Elite V2 takes advantage of this and allows players to kill Nazis in some of the most satisfying displays of sniping in any game. Sniper Elite V2 is a sniper simulator and as such, focuses on the presence of wind, distance and other factors rather than just mere tracking aim. The game is not too hard and not too easy and becomes even funner in co-op. If you can get it with a friend, or even without, this is a must play.

Sniper Elite V2 is a World War II Third Person Shooter but with a twist : you are not your typical trooper but a sniper. Therefore, the gameplay focuses around sharpshooting. Get a clear view. Find your target. Hold your breath. Then shoot! In the hardest difficulty setting you even have to take care about the wind so you don't miss your target! And if you're good enough, the game would reward you with X-Rays slow motion footage of your kills and that's satisfying! It is the most interesting game about sniping. You can hurt a bad guy without killing him so he could ask his friends to help him. You can set traps. You can even blow a grenade attached to a soldier uniform by shooting it directly! And after the campaign, you can pass hours in Challenge Mode to complete for score! Graphics are really good without being the "most beautiful game ever", though and controls are perfect. The A.I. is great. Normal mode is user-friendly enough. I recommend this game.
Very realistic Sniper gameThijs272 | Oct. 1, 2014 | See all Thijs272's reviews »
The main story plays in WWII and you have to stop the Germans launching V2 rockets. It's a very realistic sniper game because you have to aim very good, because your bullet can flew away by the wind and when you need to shoot further, you also have to aim your gun up a little bit or you'll miss the target. You can carry 3 weapons at 1 time, a sniper weapon, an assault weapon and 1 handgun. Ammo for the weapons is not much, but you can pickup ammo from defeated soldiers. The game has also awesome kill cams which shows the bullet going trough the body. The campaign story isn't that long, I completed it in less than 6 hours, but after the campaign, you can still play multiplayer co-op or play the story mode again. I recommend this game if you like sniping and have a bit strong stomach, but you can also turn off the kill cam in settings.

If you like stealth and gore you will love this game. You are as US sniper in Germany during WW2 (it is in 3rd person), You get a sniper a machine gun and a pistol and several explosive items(and stones). The game has a beautiful x-ray feature so that when you shot a Nazi it will go into a slow motion x-ray which lets you see which bones your break or what organs you puncture. if you play on a harder difficulty you have to think about wind direction and gravity it also looks very good and runs smoothly on a pc as bad as mine. Overall my favourite 3rd person game ever its one of those must have games.
