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.

Played this game for a while, very enjoyable. Play it on the easiest difficulty for some amazing relaxation, or play it on the hardest for a great challenge. Fairly simple concept that can get slightly repetitive, however each situation can be played differently to work around that. Overall great buy.
I just played this game on the PC and it blew my expectations out of the water. I assumed it was going to be a generic first person shooter but I was wrong. The story was much more than a string of random explosions. The story was an interesting idea of a nerve agent that could have swung the tide of the war, and it was neat seeing your impact on that. However, the story is still one of a shooter and therefore still isn't fleshed out as much. Of course the appeal of this game is the game play. This game may be the best sniper game I've ever played. Due to the bullet slow down feature and seeing the bullets affects of the organs was a lot of fun and added a bunch of satisfaction. Getting a headshot across the map and seeing the brains blow out was the most satisfying. The gunplay is exactly what is needed. The physics of the game are better than expected. You have to put movement and bullet drop into consideration. I wish there was a wind affect though. My only qualm with the physics was the jumping. It was pretty wacky at points. However, the AI was frustrating at points. They respond in ways that are either completely expected or unrealistic. Also, the sneak feature was pretty weak. In the end, Sniper Elite V2 offers a fun game that doesn't have competition in the sniping share of games. It is definitely worth a buy.
Had it for PlayStation 3 a couple years back. Couldn't pass up the sale price on Steam. If you're looking for an excellent marksman game look no further. Sniper Elite V2 will satiate your hunger for precision kills complete with a slow motion X-ray camera which you can also customize the frequency! Everything looks much better (as expected). What I wasn't expecting was for V2 to look how 3 does on the PlayStation 4. The story is pretty basic which I have no problem with since the gameplay is typically on point. As long as I know why I'm doing what I'm doing. The "but"... The A.I. can be pretty wonky at times, acting unrealistically. Try to avoid getting into open firefights and keep your distance. Unfortunately, there are portions where you have to fight enemies head-on which can be cumbersome at times because of the sporadic movements of the A.I. All in all this game is worth your money if you enjoy historical fiction like I do and have ever had a morbid curiosity as to what goes on inside a body when a .30 enters and exits.
Sniper Elite V2 is a good sniper simulator, where you are in the middle of the WW2, it lets you kill soldiers from a good distance with different sniper rifles with slow motion x-ray effects when shooting them in specifics parts of the body, with some good bullet physics(not perfect) and there are many maps to play in the campaign and multiplayer co-op.Call a friend and have some fun.
This is a sniping simulator first and... well, only really. There are some other weapons that you can pick up, but they just aren't all that great. The controls for movement feel pretty awful overall, as well, trying to sneak around or taking cover was very clunky. These things became more apparent toward the end of the game, as it felt like the game was really pushing for a more of a close-quarters battle. However, these things only slightly detract from the main focus of the game - the sniping. The sniping the game is just great. You have to worry about distance and wind resistance when taking long shots, and when shooting you can effect different parts of the enemy's body. For example, shooting them in the leg will bring them down to the ground without killing them, which then allows for you to lure other enemies to that one and take them out. Or shooting a grenade strapped to an enemies chest will make it detonate. Or if you get an especially well placed shot (headshot, special organ shot, or something similar), the game gives you a slo-mo x-ray vision of the damage your bullet has caused. The AI to me felt pretty awful, as well. The shoot the AI in the leg and lure the others to you trap worked in every single situation, often allowing me to get 95% of the kills in the area, and then just a little more exploration was required to clean up the remaining few. I also often like they the AI would charge your position head-on, there was very little feeling of getting flanked or needing to re-position very often. Taken all together, this game is pretty rough. It definitely has its one thing that it does well - and boy does it do well - but a lot of the other areas feel flat. Still, I recommend this game based off of the sniping alone. It's satisfying and rewarding placing that perfect shot that's so far away you can barely see the enemy. Also, in its own grisly and morbid way, it's satisfying getting that x-ray view of that perfect shot that you just had.
