Rated 2 out of 10 by Terbear A clumsy excuse for a game
The gameplay is so archaic, you would think it was designed and implemented 10 or 15 years ago. I am not sure how it was even released by the software house. Compared to Battlefield, Medal of Honor, or Call of Duty franchises, this game Is not worth playing. I returned it after a week of frustration.
Graphics are good.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Mckintay81 Slow motion sniping never gets old.
For $50 this game isn't too bad. I've never played any of the other Sniper games to compare but I had fun with this one. I can't say the game has a variety of things to do but what you can do is fun. This game requires patients and strategizing. You have to be very stealthy and plan your attack. When you snipe enemies it will alert others of your location so you have to stick and move constantly. Sniping is a blast as the bullet will travel in slow motion and give you an x ray vision of the bullet passing through your enemies skull or any other body part. Story line is blah so don't expect much out of that. Graphics are hit and miss. Most of the foreground looks detailed and hi res but the backgrounds are very blurry if they even exist. Sometimes the lighting can be too bright at times as well. Sound is ok but nothing great. For $50 I enjoyed my experience so this gets a 7 out of 10.
Rated 8 out of 10 by ronniedonnie719 A Good Three-quel
Sniper Elite III plays basically the same as Sniper Elite V2, which can be a good thing and a bad thing. The enemy A.I. is a little more realistic, but not by much.
The slow-motion "bullet time" never gets old and is always a thrill to watch as it penetrates your enemies. It is even more of a thrill because of the much more greatly detailed insides of the human body and the new three-dimensional bloody effects. Sniper Elite III is visually impressive in every way possible including what I previously stated.
"Authentic" mode I recommend only for the perfectionists and cautious-minded seeing as their are no checkpoints during each level along with much more lethal enemies. This is not your typical third-person shooter. I recommend this only for hardcore fans or those willing to try new things.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Scorp321 Extremely Short- Some Good/Some Bad
Sniper Elite III is Extremely Short- I finished it at a pretty slow pace in only about 6.5 hours. I don't know where people are coming up with 12 hours. Maybe if you crawl the whole way through. The gameplay is pretty cool. Sniping, xray slow-mo shots, & stealth are all good. Graphics are good, but not truly next gen. Maybe it suffers as it's another WWII game in that respect. There are a few glitchy movements by the player & the AI, but it's not too bad. It really doesn't offer much of anything new except the xray shots. This is another very short & somewhat disappointing next gen game. Hoping 2015 is a better year for gaming! Luckily I rented this game. I wouldn't pay more than $30.00 for it as it's so short.
Rated 10 out of 10 by MisterDoc33 Good Game
Part 3 is much much better than part 2! But sniper elite part 1 is far the best!! I do enjoy this game. Not to many sniper games. This is a keep. Thanks. Hope they do a part 4.
Rated 0 out of 10 by RdytoKill Cant wait for it!
I loved the sniper v2, cant say that for the more modern sniper they released but I know this one will be great. I cant see why everyone wants to compare this to BF and COD (seriously cant compare any sniping game to COD, that's like sniping for beginners!), BF is great but it doesnt have the AWESOME kill cam! Besides I believe the title of the game is called SNIPER for a reason? If they wanted to make a generic FPS the developers should quit 505 games and join infinityward or treyarch but then we'd have more of those awesome, amazing, beautiful COD games to play and no real sniper games to enjoy! In other words I'm preordering this now! as 1 guy said GONNA BE EPIC!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by REOpRacCity Amazing Gameplay
This is a stealth and sniping game. If you aren't a fan of either of those, stay clear. I love it. The graphics are great, the gameplay is outstanding, and the kill-cam is amazing (x-ray view of the bullet passing through the enemy). It's very slow paced, but the wait usually results in a nice kill shot. I recommend purchasing the Camo Weapons DLC as well, as the MOSIN gives an edge from the start, as well as the semi auto suppressed pistol (no other suppressors in the game other than the Welrod). If you're looking for a strategy game, action game, stealth game, and pretty much an all around awesome game, this is it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by BigTOE1997 Looks good so far.
Hope this game blows its counterpart out of the water. Graphics and mechanics all look great but i havent seen what the multiplayer will be like. In the SEV2 game it had alot of quarks that never got banged out like shooting through walls but it never took away from the fun. If the minor stuff like that was fixed it will blow all other multiplayer away. Im sure just like SEV2 it will take a patient mind and a good eye to take the lives of your enemy. You simply can not compare this BF4 or COD because its a game all its own. Hope to see X-Rays in multiplayer this time aswell SEV2 did not.
Rated 0 out of 10 by jblack31938 Sniper Elite 3!!
Can't wait for this game to be released, I've really enjoyed sniper elite v2.. well all sniping games that have been released for the ps3 including sniper ghost warrior 1 &2 also! But those of you complaining that its not like cod and bf this game wasn't intended to be like those games it was intended to be all about sniping hense the name "sniper elite". So those of u who don't like it stick to your cod and bf and those of u who enjoy these games as much as I do thank 505 games for continuing such a great series as sniper elite!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by badhac Fun but repetitive.
I've been a fan of the Sniper elite series and its no different with this one. The game is fun especially on the harder difficulty, you really need to work on being stealthy. My only issue really was the game seemed rather repetitive and was waaay too short. Other than that its a fun game and hasnt turned me off from the series.
