      I recently got my hands on the latest installment of the sniper game series, Sniper Elite III. I purchased this game with modest expectations, hoping it would be better than its previous two counterparts. Needless to say, I was mildly disappointed with the structure and layout of the game.

      Every action performed in this game seemed more like a chore than actual fun and entertainment. Between the tasks of setting up the right shot for your enemies and putting a bullet through every soldier there was, it grew rather tiresome and repetitive. Don’t get me wrong; there is a rather enjoyable sense of satisfaction that arises from the slow motion kills that are in Sniper Elite III. The problem is the missions do not embellish this but rather tend to focus on the stealthier aspect of an takedowns.

      On the bright side, designs for levels in Sniper Elite III are much more


      open this time and often encourage one to fire shots from a distance, using the layout of the levels. The campaigns give you the option to become a master sniper, which allows you to have better shooting accuracy as well as a better sense of target positioning.

      Charging headfirst into enemy territory is always an option available, but with just a few well-placed shots, it’s not too hard thereafter for the heroic protagonist to fall to his death. Silent steps often lead to a better vantage point, and with the option to choose many different routes in the level, the method chosen to complete the task is left entirely up to the player.

      However, don’t mistake that level of freeness for an open-ended game. There are a number of side objectives to choose from in addition to the main objectives, but you are still required to follow the main objectives. You are not required to kill everything that comes in your way of course, but the prideful sense of satisfaction that comes along with locating and taking down a visible target is almost too good to pass up. After resting on top of a sniper nest and choosing a target in the distance, you have the option to lower and control your breathing, which thus adds an additional red reticle that informs you where your well-placed bullet will drop.

      Firing off that perfect shot erases all signs of surrounding threats and focuses on the slow motion of the bullet and the enemy being introduced. The option of X-ray views will most often show that perfect shot splintering the enemy’s skull as it is impacted, thus causing the brain to be splattered everywhere. Throughout the game, you will kill many unsuspecting enemies in this manner as you watch their faces become torn beyond recognition. You ...

      of course have the option to turn off the animated blood and gore, but keeping it on gives you that displayed mark of achievement.

      Unfortunately, you are left performing many unnecessary stealth like missions as opposed to the sniping segments that are rightfully due in the game. Levels are completely filled with soldiers who appear as soon as you fire off your first round, causing you to go into hiding as opposed to enjoying more sniper mayhem. However, with good thought out strategy, you will be able to fire at enemies and move to another vantage point without being located. You are rewarded in the game by being able to successfully move to and from different vantage points.

      Sniper Elite III offers exciting and fun game-play when you are using the sniper, but there are too may missions throughout the game that encourage close range brutality. Constantly moving from one hiding place to

      another while simultaneously trying to keep your heart rate low isn’t exactly the ideal scenario of fun shooting. However, the scenery you will travel while doing so is much more appealing and attractive than its previous two versions. Between the beautiful lighting and luscious greenery as well as extensive mountains, you are left with impressive vistas that seem to stretch for miles.

      Between all the half thought up stealth action sequences, it’s easy to forget those perplexing scenarios when you finally make bullet contact with your enemy’s head. It’s an obscene and sick pleasure, but the delightful disorder of chaos, blood, and guts is just enough to remember every other seemingly unforgettable experience left in the game.

      I was expecting a bit more from this game, considering the development team has already had time to learn from their two previous versions, but overall I give Sniper Elite III a solid 7 out of 10.
