Product Details:

Featuring a greater focus on player agency/choice and expansive environments filled with opportunities for distinct play-styles, and set in the exotic yet deadly terrain of North Africa during World War Two, Sniper Elite 3 sees American OSS agent Karl Fairburne deep behind Nazi lines, providing crucial sharpshooter skills as the Allies battle Germany's fearsome Tiger tanks across the Western Desert. But it's not just the famed Afrika Korps that Karl has to worry about. He soon uncovers German plans to build a "wunderwaffe" - wonder weapon - with the power to crush any Allied forces in its path, and turn the tide of the whole war.


  • Observe. Plan. Execute. Adapt - expansive environments allow the player to choose how they complete the mission, offering non linear multi-routes, and more verticality than ever before, offering the freedom to take out the enemy by your own design.
  • Relocation - A sniper always needs an exit strategy. Search the varied environments to create and discover opportunities that suit your play-style: sniper nests, ambush locations, alternative approaches, sound masking and trap setup. Prioritise your targets to maximise your advantage and use shadows and darkness to remain unseen by the Afrika Korps, or relocate to keep your prey guessing.
  • Environment - The North African battlefields of WWII provide great visual variation, significantly different from any other sniping title before it, allowing for much longer ranged shots. Play amongst mountain ranges and huge flat plains; bustling townships and cities, and remote village settlements.
  • Improved Afrika Korps AI - Clear cues for engagement and detection and a rebuilt AI system emphasizing squad roles and tactics make the Afrika Korps smarter and more challenging, while allowing the player more meaningful choices. Backed by a variety of vehicles from Jeeps to Panzer Tanks, the Afrika Korps are a force to be reckoned with...
  • Weapon & Character Customisation - Gain XP and sniper ranks from both single and multiplayer progression to unlock over 40 new and unique customisation parts and build the ultimate rifle that best suits your mission and play-style. Customise individual load-outs and store them for both multiplayer and single-player engagements.
  • Improved Human Kill-Cam - now shows even greater detail including the human circulatory system and complete muscle layer.
  • New Vehicle Kill-Cam - Extended to mechanical equipment such as armoured cars and tanks, multi- stage destruction allows you to create your own opportunity on a vehicle, before delivering the killing shot; shoot into tanks via the driver view-port; see the crew taken out inside.
  • Multiplayer - Building on the multiplayer pedigree of previous titles, SE3 is packed with content for both co-operative and competitive players. 5 modes of competitive action with support for team or lone wolf play including Distance King and No Cross with a selection of maps at launch. Larger and more open environments allow for greater freedom of movement and longer distances for the more skilled Sniper. Earn your Medals and Ribbons to become the Ultimate Sniper!
  • Co-Op - The return of your favourite modes sees Co-operative players able to choose from Overwatch missions and the new Survival Missions. In Overwatch players take the distinct roles of the Sniper and the Operative and must choose their play-style working closely as a team to accomplish their mission. For Survival gameplay you take on the endurance challenge against everything the German Afrika Korps can throw against you!
  • Cover - A greater range of movement and agility means Snipers can quickly navigate the environment and keep one step ahead of their prey.
  • Improved Combat - Better feedback is given to the player so they can decide how best to deal with both long-range and short-range combat. Improved stealth melee combat gives additional ways to take out your enemy without being seen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but bad The game is good but very repetitive. The missions are either defend this or kill these officers. The multiplayer is the best part. The Ai in the game are just stupid. You shoot. They hear it. You hide. But 5 minutes later they just go back to like nothing happened. On the other hand, when you are playing against someone else, you are always concerned for your safety. Overall, good idea, bad execution.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Two thumbs up Improved kill cam shots along with better maps. I have logged about 100 hours of game play and still enjoy the game. The co-op feature is my favorite part of this. I tend to look for games that offer co-op play and this one nails it. Sniper Elite v2 and now v3 both do well in the co-op arena. The only thing I would like to see added to the game is more missions. I hope this is a platform game that continues to more series for it. The rating is correct for the game as its not one for the kids to play.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too many glitches, rendered unplayable I bought this game back when it was released, though I've only had time to sit down and play it recently. At first, the game played just like Sniper Elite V2, though there were some noticeable texture pops. I did not have a problem with the pops, because I knew, as the game was published on multiple platforms, this sort of thing can happen. However, as I played further, I started experiencing difficulties progressing in the game, i.e. objectives would not register as completed, enemies would not appear on the map, player character is unable to interact with sniper nets/miscellaneous objects, there was even a time that the game could not load my previous saved data, and I had to start over from block one. I have restarted the third mission, Halfaya's Pass, about four times, and have been unable to complete it due to the glitches I've mentioned above. Overall, this game was a huge disappointment, as I enjoy the franchise. Unless Rebellion creates a patch to fix this game, I couldn't recommend it to anyone. No one should have to flush out $$$ for a product that isn't even complete.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sniper Down Sniper Elite 3 is a game for those who are starting out as snipers. This game lacked the sniper world. The game play felt like a 10 year old had made. The graphics looks like a new employee had just got out of graphic school. The bullet cam took to long to hit the target. I figured since this is the third sniper elite game they would have better graphics, better story and awesome weapons but I was in disappointment.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unplayable. Abysmal. I enjoyed Sniper Elite V2 and the gameplay itself could be on par with that....IF IT DIDN'T FREEZE. I was lucky to make it through 15 min. of gameplay without a freeze. Audio dropouts, lost progress after a save, and glitches galore....how does a game like this get released to the public?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Irritating, annoying, but still enjoyable There are more Tech Problems and Glitches in this game then you can shake a stick at. Once you get use to all of them and learn how to work around them, then you may not get so angry at it, but that will take you a while. I have went as far in the game 35 promotions and I'm now tired and bored with it. All in all it's a good game and would be a great game if it was more realistic and without the Tech and Glitch problems it has. Still I feel it was worth my money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money This is one of the buggiest games I have ever played on the PS3 Console and the support is awful to non existent. Sniper Elite V2 was a much better game. I can't even finish the Single player game because a bug causes the game to end. The multiplayer isn't much better either. Responses to kneel or go to prone are slow half the time allowing my enemies to kill me much easier. DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!
