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.
The Sniper Elite games have some of the best bullet ballistics and sniping mechanics games have seen. It's incredibly satisfying to get the massive distance shot that you've been waiting behind the scope for. The amount of bullet drop and the damage dealt always feels just right. With all the work towards making sniping feel excellent, one truly wonders why the game doesn't put a player in a space to truly utilize it. Missions often put you 40ft away from an enemy soldier in any given direction and just as often expect you to stay quiet or face the wrath of close quarters combat with your SMG. Mind, sniper rifle shots are always loud. There is a mechanic of masking your sniper shots with loud nearby noises, though this severely curbs pacing and restricts the player from orchestrating their own sniping plans. Sniping, however often it comes around, feels far more a rarity over the other gunplay than it should. Sniper Elite 3 feels a whole lot like a generic, mediocre third person shooter with excellent sniping mechanics.
After playing sniper 2 and having fun for a long time, I decided to go for and try this game. Pretty much runs fine on any reasonable gpu. This game is very much optimised,wonderful graphics and locations. We have to manage our ammo and bad guys sometimes wont come unless you've been hit. They mostly sneak around and try to nail you which is interesting...another feature is you get your own medi kit unlike version 2,sound effects are awesome...overall sniping is excellent with its slow motion bullet ability.
I had a lot more fun with this game than with Hitman Absolution. There was a lot of planning and tactics to set up the perfect run through truly massive levels. So many ways to go about beating it. Great amount of replayability. Amazing graphics. Hilariously awesome bullet cam.
