A sniper fanchise was born


Sniper Elite is quite an old game now, and the game hasn't age well, at least for me, the core gameplay was good when it was first released, but now, it's kinda slow and tedious to control the camera, the movements and even the weapons are slow. The story was weak as it only gives you a reason to hide, kill someone and save allies, but nothin interesting for me. Fans of sniper games will love this game and franchise.

Excellent video game


It is a game that despite the poor graphics, is entertaining.The missions can be difficult since the game is saved until parts of the mission is passed and to recover the health one has to look for medical kits.

The origin


This is the first Sniper Elite game, and it stands well even today. This is why: Despite of its graphics, the gameplay is a blast. Stealth is mandatory in order to stay alive, as when you pull the trigger the enemy is going to figure out your position right away, and they'll come after you. Don't take this lightly, because the enemy is actually a threat in this game, not like what happens nowadays. The sniping is incredible too, the feel is there, you're a sniper trying to find the perfect spot, angle, timing, and then, after the shot, disappear. Together with Sniper Ghost Warrior, this (and Sniper Elite v2) is the greatest sniping game.

The best sniping game I've played.


This isn't a game where you're invincible on some mountain picking off clueless enemies who can't figure out where you are. You actually have be wary about enemies, because, unlike many other shooters, they can actually kill you. Once you fire a shot they don't stand there scratching their heads wondering which direction it came from. You have bullets flying your way soon after and many of those bullets find their mark. You have to use stealth often to get past certain areas. Sometimes you may need to throw a rock to get a guard away from his post. You oftentimes need to mask the sound of you gunshot with the sound of artillery. The sniping is really solid. You must take in account gravity, windspeed, heartrate, among other things. Overall the game is quite enjoyable. If you're a fan a sniping games, go ahead and buy Sniper Elite.

The one and only sniping game.


Most shooters asks you to snipe an enemy like drinking a glass of water. Just aim the crosshair and shoot. Well, this is not the case, in Sniper Elite you have to keep in mind (almost) everything necessary to get a good shot - wind, gravity, movement, breath, heartbeat and other stuff. While the game is quite mediocre (the pure shooting is rather weak, level design is average and graphics are not that brilliant), this is the only game that makes you feel like a real sniper, along with Sniper Ghost Warrior which is, unfortunally, a shitty game.
