Sniper Elite 4
Action 14 February 2017
The fourth major installment in the popular tactical first-person shooter series by Rebellion, in which we assume the role of a trained sniper fighting on various fronts of the World War II. In Sniper Elite 4, we control Karl Fairburne, the protagonist of the previous games, who is sent from North Africa to the Apennine Peninsula. His mission is to cooperate with the Italian resistance in order to help the Allied forces that are pushing to the north. As far as gameplay mechanics are concerned, the game develops the ideas of its predecessor, and our task is to efficiently eliminate subsequent targets; how are we going to do it is entirely up to us. The game takes place on vast sandbox maps and, as usual, puts a great emphasis on realistic recreation of bullet behavior depending on the atmospheric conditions. The title is meant to be played solo or in cooperation mode, although it does not lack for other multiplayer features known from its predecessors.
Sniper Elite III: Afrika
Action 27 June 2014
The third installment in the series of World War II shooters. Sniper Elite III: Afrika once again tells the story of an American sniper by the name of Karl Fairburne. This time, the protagonist is on a hunt for Nazis in North Africa. The single player campaign constitutes a series of missions with gradually increasing difficulty level. The creators from Rebellion studio prepared a cooperation mode as well. The gameplay is based largely on being able to make a good use of a sniper rifle in the game's numerous shooting sequences. Accurate shots are always rewarded with a slow motion x-ray vision of our bullets penetrating the body parts of the enemies. One of the bigger new features introduced in this installment is the presence of structurally open map layouts, which give much more freedom of approach to the players.
Sniper Elite V2
Action 01 May 2012
The game is a remastered and expanded version of the classic shooter developed by Rebellion and released in 2005. Sniper Elite V2 is set in the besieged Berlin, when the World War II is reaching its end. The player is put in the shoes of Karl Fairburne - an American agent disguised as a German sniper, who is following the traces of Nazi scientists working on a deadly rocket weapon. This new installment does not introduce a new setting, but the protagonist, visuals and levels have all changed. When it comes to the levels, those were based on the missions from the original game. Sniper Elite V2 places special emphasis on realism, taking a set of factors into account when calculating the trajectory of projectiles. Also, the killcam system was improved, displaying an x-ray animation of one's bullet damaging the body of an enemy. An original multiplayer mode is a significant addition here - it focuses on tactical, sniping duels for up to 12 players.
