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.
Game that try to be Sniper Elite but fails. Only good thing about the game is that it is short. Other then that the game has bad collision with the player getting stuck, the ai is worthless and stupid mini cutscene destroy the flow of the game multiple times per level.
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.
This games real name should be Sniper Safari. In almost all levels you have a spotter that tell you where to sit and who to shoot. No thinking is required from you as a player. To make sure you do not think by mistake your buddy keep serving you with stupid comments. Such as stay frosty, game face, it's a little to quit and they do not pay me enough for this shit. If It takes you seven bullet to hit someone in the head you get the same restarted great shot from him. Not that it's matter if you miss that much. The chance that someone notice you is based on a single dice that roll around in the enemies empty heads. They miss you when you shoot them down in front of each other and then notice their buddy die on a cliff 200 meters away. The best part is when you manage to leave the reservation that the linear game play try to force you in. The whole game breaks and cat sleeps with dogs as they enemy try to hump your spotter to death by running into him.
