First and foremost, it is important to realize this is not on par with a lot of the recent releases and is likely why is it $10 cheaper. The game mechanics are still somewhat behind the times to include CG animations during cut scenes. That being said, it is still a solid game. This is definitely an acceptable time killer during the summer drought of game releases for the new consoles and a little something different from everything else out there right now.
The single player campaign is reminicent of Sniper Elite V2 (ps3, xbox 360) with a few step ups:
Detection System- This is what really makes it fun. You are able to mask your shots with various environmental assistance (bombs, truck backfires, generators, weather) among snipers nests. If you are detected, you can relocate while the enemy closes in on your last known really creating a fun cat and mouse dynamic similar to the most recent Splinter Cell titles...
If you like being patient and killing nazis you've come to the right game. Improved from the second in the series and a little tougher than last time, this is more of a stealth/sniper game rather than a run and gun game. Multiple ways to navigate maps, lots of objectives, clear cut directions. Bought a copy for my 67 year old father and he loves it. Bonus survival rounds included, have not tried multiplayer. Thankfully this is one of the few games anymore that seemed to focus on single player story mode rather than a multiplayer with a story mode quickly thrown in. You can choose your targets via binoculars and tag them, certain enemies have upgrades for your guns and binoculars on them so make sure to search them after you blow their face off. The bullet cam mode is the same as last time and still just as amazing. (who knew i would enjoy watching someone get shot in the testicles so much?)
Graphics are dated, but ok. I've seen much better on xbox 360 let alone the xbox one. The kill shot was an amusing surprise but got old soon and was just plain annoying after 100 times of watching the bones explode internally. A sniper should put the bad guys down, not as double as the Medical Examiner or CSI guy. There is a way to turn it off thankfully. The AI logic in detection is just plain poorly thought out. But it is mostly workable. You pull the trigger once and you must retreat 35 yards and then can return and fire again. So long as you can retreat those few feet you can plink away all day. They sound the all-clear and resume their aimless wandering within a minute or so once you reach the magic distance. Rather than this being a 100% of the time activity it would have been alot more fun if there was a bit randomness to it. Sometimes they don't find you, other times they do and you have to try and escape. The weapons you start with are predictably lame...
