I downloaded this on PSN a few days ago. This DEMO kept me replaying it for a least 2 hours checking out all the different possibilities of completing the mission but there are not to many ways, but to check out the custom settings as difficulties and such. The X-Ray bullet kills are the best I have seen both visually and graphically. Not for the Faint of Heart for is when I downloaded it and started to play it thought it is was like the game Hidden & Dangerous until I shot the first bad guy over 40 or so meters and my nephew said "cool bullet cam" and then TINK! CRUNCH! PLAT! blood and brains realistically all over and mushroomed bullet in slow motion exit. I thought NOT FOR KIDS. I'm 26 and this game is for ADULTS imo. This game is all its own and been waiting for a long time to see a game developer made a realistic SNIPER game were bullets DO NOT fly in a straight line for 400m. It is AWESOME and can't wait for the game. P.S. I had a bullet cam hit a sniper in the testies(BOTH) in X-RAY.
Rated 0 out of 10 by WiKKiD Just played the demo, can't wait for the real deal
The demo shows off the great gameplay and the beautiful kill cam shots. Shooting a sniper on the third floor of a building, while he's laying prone, and you're down on the ground level, amazing shot! Getting a headshot on a sniper 252.2 m away while he's in the shadows, priceless! I love the choice of weapons and the trip mines are wonderful. Being able to pick up the enemies weapons just adds to the mix. The only two complaints I have so far are minor. The voices of the enemies can be misleading. They will sound like they are standing next to you, in reality they are about a block away. Secondly, not being able to switch which shoulder your firing over can lead to aiming/viewing problems. But if you remain true to sniping, that shouldn't be a problem. One thing that I found bothering in the game is the music. It seems to kill some of the game atmosphere, I suggest turning it off and just enjoying the game. All in all, with what I've played and seen through out the demo, this game is well deserving of a 4.0 out of 5.0 rating.

If you like playing the role of sniper, this is an excellent game! It's crazy hard even at the "normal" level (for me at least) so I had to switch to the easy level. The enemies at the normal level seem to get alerted to you VERY easily no matter how long you take, how sneaky you are, or how quiet. Im sure as you ratchet the difficulty up, it's even worse (or better for those who like a challenge). The sniper animations when you place a great shot are wicked. The difficulty of making the shot depends on the difficulty level you are on from no calibrations to super-fine tuning and taking into account all variables (wind, distance, etc). I typically play just for fun so a super challenging experience isn't what Im looking for. I want recreation, not frustration. That being said, it seems as if this game caters to all types of players in the sense of how challenging you want the game. I'm glad I purchased it and after I complete the game on easy, I like it so much I may ratchet the difficulty up a notch and replay it. It's that cool.

OK, this is not a bad game at all. There are some people that say the game gets repetitive. Well guess what, its a sniper game, that's what you do. In that case, COD series is repetative because you run and gun, GT5 is too because you drive, get over it. I haven't had an issue with the saving or respawn or the crouching difficulty. Not that its not there but haven't experienced it yet. The difficulty levels are challenging. The AI is a bit rediculous at times but there are several ways to make your way through a level and different strategies. The graphics arent thrilling but hey, before you pull your wallet out, check the back of the box, it says 720 so its as advertised. It may seem at times that it is dragging on but hey, it not a run and gun, that's not what "SNIPERS" do. You do get plenty of time to search for collectables between waves so make use of the time. Overall its a really decent game when all you are looking to do is chill out and just waist some time. If you are looking for a challenge, use sniper elite. Just sit back relax and have some fun with it.
Rated 5 out of 10 by RealityCheck If all you want is cool graphics, go for it.
This game should be called Commando Elite due to the fact that more than half of the game it's like any other shooter. The only thing cool is the bullet impact cam which gets old quick. Want good checkpoints with your game? TOO BAD. It will drop you directly in front of enemies. I don't call that "challenging", I call it frustrating. Want to be a sniper and be able to hide and be ninja-like? TOO BAD. More than once enemies saw me through walls. That's right, walls. Want alternate paths to your target? TOO BAD. Want to throw a grenade quickly? TOO BAD. Want a secondary gun with a decent amount of ammo? TOO BAD. Want a decent silenced pistol with good aiming sights? TOO BAD. I could go on and on. Anyway, hopefully someone will make a sniper game one day that can rival Sniper: Ghost Warrior, because this game and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 have been very disappointing.

Ok I finally beat the game...and when I say finally it doesn't mean that the game was hard or long in content it just took me awhile cause the game is so annoying. The missions on this game are not too great, but no too bad either. My issue with this game is the save process. If I'm more then half way done with the board and the game symbol shows that it saved and then I stop playing...when I turn the game back on to play...it starts all the way from the beginning of the board! Also the movement of this game is horrible, there are 10 missions not including the Kill Hitler DLC mission. I'm sure I could have beating this game in a few days if it wasn't so annoying! The game has a few bugs, here are some: (1) sometimes you can't make your man lay down flat...he'll just keep standing up. (2) Sometimes you're not able to pick items up. (3) Sometimes your bullets will not hit a target. (at close range), The game states you can see enemies on the map, but it doesn't work and this game has a really bad spawn point system. The storyline isn't good, the missions are almost the same. This game isn't the worst game ever, but it ranks high on 2012 worst games of the year! in my opinion

I just downloaded the demo from the PSN and i was reluctant to play it due to the not so good military shooters that have recently flooded the market. This game beat all my expectations and from playing the demo its a must buy on the first day. The graphics are pretty solid and the shooting mechanic is great / hit detection is accurate and really innovative when the you get to kill an enemy a cutscene is shown where your kill shot landed and showing the bullet pierce through their skeleton. Some might have an issue with needing to aim a little higher when aiming for the enemy at more than half a football fields length then normal shooter games but thats what gives it own twist and authenticity. i haven't played the other sniper game due to it looking like COD but give this game a shot because it wont disappoint. You get to carry a sniper rifle, assault rifle, and suppressed pistol. The controls are great and so is the environment. You get to climb up wreckage and buildings in the game to get to sniper positions and can shoot grenades attached to the enemy. Only issue i found with it was that your not able to switch shoulder positions when wielding a weapon when trying to clear out an area.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Steve123456781949u2 Good Campaign
This game had a great campaign, but the multi-player is not that great. The producers focused more on the campaign than on the multiplayer. Part of it is that multiplayer is only 2 people, so it is hard to find someone, to find the game you wanna play, because I don't think many people know about the game. Great campaign, but if your'e looking for multiplayer only try another game. I still like the multiplayer. It has good modes, but it takes so long to find someone to play with. My suggestion is to download the demo on the Playstation Store, if you have Playstation, and if you like it buy it. Im not sure if its worth $50, what it is when I wrote this. I might wait for the price to drop a liitle, but many people could already be moving on from the game by then.
Rated 2 out of 10 by StretchNYC NOT A GOOD GAME
Ok this is my second comment on this game and this is not a review, but instead a warning for anyone thinking about purchasing this game. I'm convinced that the peole that are leaving great news about this game work with or are related to someone that had something to do with creating this mess of a game. There are so many things wrong with this game and to write them down would take up the maxium length of text I can write. Since I paid 49.99 for this game I tried my best to enjoy it, but I find myself turning turning the game off and thinking I've been had! I'll admit the demo is alluring, but DO NOT FALL FOR IT this game is a MESS and poorley created. For anyone that say this game is great...I have some beach front property in Idaho to sell you!!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by TSizzler36 This game is INSANE!
Huge step up from the first one. The X-Ray-Kill cam is insane and makes you cringe as you follow your spinning bullet a thousand yards directly to your target. As soon as it hits your target, you see the inside of their head or lungs, or heart, or sometimes entire body and the bullet just rip through their bones and tissue, and exit with a spray of bloody mist. It's not just a sniping game. You can choose to be stealthy and wait till the sound of a bomb exploding to take your shot, or get out your sub-machine gun and spray and pray. You can choose your sniper rifle, machine gun, pistol, and an array of explosives to get the job done. Great story line, great game-play, and perfect for 2 player cooperative or online. Overall, a very fun game to play.
