Sniper Elite

In this game you play an American soldier working to prevent the Russians troops from getting hold of the German nuclear weapons research at the end of world war II. You sneak around in Berlin in German uniform and with the help of the resistance try to find good positions to snipe the enemy from and collect the important papers you are looking for. Resistance?, don't think, shoot, the story is stupid so lets not spend any more time on it. The sniping part is good and things as gravity and wind makes it a bit harder then simple look and shoot. It takes a while to turn around with the wiimote and that makes you die a lot when you try to be cool and fight indoor but then you are not really not much of a sniper anyway. You also need to find a good place to shoot from and time your fire so as few enemies as possible notice you when you make the kill. Some tanks are also in the way but they can be removed by putting explosives at them and shooting at the explosives. AI in the game is fine but sometimes they are a bit to good at finding out were you shoot from.

On the PC you can also play multi player with all the players sneaking around until someone makes a small mistake and get shoot in the head. A little fun but all is simple death match like we have seen a thousands times before.

Sniper Elite V2

Remake of Sniper Elite and not much is new. They have a X-Ray kill cam that ups the 'parent panic factor' a bit but it's does not add anything else to the game really. Support for two player co-op but the levels are two linear and simple to make it that fun.

Sniper Elite III

Feels like a good step forward for this series. Less linear levels makes it more fun to explore and the stealth system is much better.

Sniper Elite 4

Visited Italy, shoot some Nazi, Killed Hitler. Nice holiday.
