I hate it, when they change the controls in a game, for no reason. I got used to the controls of the first two games, and here, you move very differently. And no, i don't mean, they set the actions, to different buttons. The actions work differently. It's not a big thing, but it can be annoying. Other then that, the game didn't change much. For some reason, you rely more on your traps this time, then your rifle, since most of the levels are smaller, but i actually liked that here. Luring the African Corps into a trap and watching them is like christmas came early(for some reason, Home alone is played on TV every christmas in my country). Oh, and stay clear of the multiplayer. I mean it. 100% super campers, that can corner shoot you!
This game is an awesome sniper game. It's difficult, but not extremely. Definitely worth buying when on sale.
In Sniper elite 3 you play as a elite sniper/assassin that kills nazis,how could it be better?The gameplay is realistic,the enemies notice you and open fire alerting others of your presence and bullet drop is a thing.Yep i really like this game!
Lets start off with the good things about Sniper Elite 3. It's pretty. That's about it unfortunately. This game has game breaking bugs and doesn't work in windows 10 without having to use windows 7 compatibility mode. A little more than halfway through the game, you will hit a bug that causes instant mission failure and can only be resolved by restarting the entire mission, playing 30 minutes into the mission again and hoping it doesn't do it again because it is a completely random bug. This bug is widely complained about on steam forums. As for the gameplay, the controls are enough to put anyone off. It doesn't work well on a controller because you have to precisely aim, so you really need to use a keyboard and mouse....but...the keyboard and mouse controls are horrendous. Honestly the worst I have come across in a 3rd person game ever. The missions are pretty repetitive and nothing that hasn't been done 10 times before in other games. Now before anyone says "well you just don't get sniper elite games", please note that I played and liked both Sniper Elite 1 and 2. The 3rd one is just bad.
This is my favorite Sniper Elite game but it lacks some main elements I want in a WW2 game. The story is great and fresh and so is the gameplay, at first, there are not enough sniper moments. The stealth is underplayed by adding pistols and bombs and other non sniper rifles which are the coolest feature of this series. There are not enough scenes where there is just plain old fashioned sniping. The kill cam is cool as always but the appearance of several bugs degraded the quality of the game. In conclusion the DLC are good and worth buying.
