The sequel to Rebellion's highly-acclaimed 2005 game Sniper Elite, Sniper Elite V2 continues to offer gamers the most authentic World War II sniping experience by putting them in the middle of war-torn Berlin amidst the frenzied final battle between German and Russian forces. With an emphasis on learning to handle the anticipation and pressure of the hunt, players are forced to use skill, patience and cunning to achieve their missions as they find themselves facing life-altering choices. The celebrated “bullet cam” from Sniper Elite makes its return and will be more gratifying than ever. Skillful shots are rewarded with a slow-motion sequence of the bullet running its full trajectory from barrel to target as well as featuring graphic detail of the effects of the bullet entering and destroying a target.

Looks aren't everythingI bought the game and it was not what I thought it was, and was way more difficult to try and learn.

Incredible sniping experienceThis game has become one of my favorite sniping experiences ever. To begin with, the campaign is pretty good. It can sometimes can get repetitive, but it is still fun. I probably wouldn't replay the campaign again though. The AI in this game is pretty difficult at times. I played the campaign on the hardest difficulty (which I recommend for the most realistic sniping experience) and the enemies are really powerful. They aren't always the brightest, but overall they aren't bad. The best part of this game is in the online part of it. The Team Deathmatch playlist is so fun when you play it on the hardest difficulty (the only difficulty I play it on). On the hardest difficulty, you have to determine where the bullet will drop based on distance, gravity, and windspeed which makes for a fun and challenging experience. There is no mini map to help you either. It is very challenging, but the most fun if you like realism.
Many people compare this game to Sniper: Ghost Warrior or Ghost Warrior 2. Here are the differences I found between Sniper Elite and Ghost Warrior 2:
1. Sniper Elite's campaign has more stuff to do but the AI is not as realistic as it is in Ghost Warrior 2.
2. Ghost Warrior 2's multiplayer is fun, but more limited than Elite's. Also, the servers are not good on Ghost Warrior 2 because connection is really laggy at times and when the host quits, you immediately are disconnected and the stats don't save.
3. Ghost Warrior 2 has a simpler feel to it and some cool snipers.
4. The most obvious difference is that Elite is in World War II while Ghost Warrior 2 is in more of a modern time.
Each game has its ups and downs so look into both games. Overall though, I will say Elite has more to offer than Ghost Warrior.

Repetition, Repetition, Repetition...I picked up this game maybe about two months ago or so. I first got to playing it and I was blown away by the graphics, and the surprising realism of the ballistics. Then I got to the second mission...and it was basically the same as the first...sneak around this corner, plant a trip mine here, shoot that guy. Next mission same thing. Then entire game repeated itself non stop. I didn't get a chance to play the DLC, however I cant imagine it being any different than more sneaking around, trip mine here or there, and shooting the guy with a head shot. My recommendations for a sniper game certainly aren't this one unless youre into pure sniping with great graphics. I'm saying this now though ALL YOU DO IS SNIPE. There is hardly any close combat, let alone ammo for the close combat weapons to be used effectively. Now if you want a better sniping game I suggest waiting for it to be developed as the new Ghost Warrior was a total bust, then again the previous one didnt set the bar very high. Like I mentioned earlier this game is repetitive, and I dumped it after about a week of gameplay. There is no replay value for this game. What would you do differently? Maybe shoot that one guard in the head instead of blowing him up? Woop Di Do.

Top 10 WWII games for Xbox 360This game amazed me in many ways. First the X-ray kill cams was one great idea. This game has a great story that is 6-7 hours long. The gameplay felt like i was right there in combat. I recommend getting the DLC's for this game for more great experience. 4.3/5 Score.

Awesome!!!!Can't get enough of this game. Playing it on Elite mode is one of the best experiences ever. Great graphics, ultra-fast checkpoint loading and lots of gear to get through missions. Planting explosives, traps and mines is a lot of fun. At last a very realistic sniper game.

Get this game because it has tons of replay value
