Sniper Elite V2 returns players to the battlefields of World War II for solo assignments behind enemy lines. Posing deadly puzzles of tactical positioning and split-second timing, each mission demands preparation, patience, and steel-nerved execution. Reconnaissance is crucial, in order to take the right shot at the right time, while remaining concealed for a safe escape to the next waypoint. Precision shots are rewarded with graphic "kill cam" cutaways, which show the bullet impacting the victim's skeleton with a slow motion, X-ray effect. Wii U owners can experience a slightly altered version of Sniper Elite V2 thanks to the GamePad. Players can use the controller's screen to track the exact positions of patrols, locate planted explosives and examine their potential blast radius, and see their character's heart rate without having to look down a scope.

Sniper Elite V2 will definitely have you sitting on the edge of your seat from start to finish. This game is refreshing because it is anything but a Call of Duty clone, it is a smart shooter game that requires careful strategy and planning in order to accomplish your goals.

The game allows you to play multiplayer missions or solo missions. The multiplayer missions are best played with a friend versus a complete stranger, because communication between partners is essential for these missions to be a success. The one thing that this game received criticism for was the missions being too brief. Also some people thought there should be better stealth options because it was somewhat difficult to be stealthy at certain points in the plot.

The great thing about this game is that there is more than one way to complete a mission. Another nice touch is the ability to fire a bullet so that it will kill two enemies at once. Another is the use of x-ray vision to show the kill, with the sniper's bullet in slow motion. The advantage of x-ray vision is that it will show you exactly where the bullet hits your enemy, even the vital organs. It's all very gory and there is a lot of tension because there is always some sort of danger lurking around the next corner. The game is of course perfect for those who like the accuracy of the sniper's art.

Another complaint is the fact that enemies often seem to have superhuman vision. They can spot you from unrealistic distances. The enemies also have poor AI, which can make it easy to get past them. What is good about this game is that you are rewarded for having patience. Not many games reward players for their patience.

Overall, this is a great game to add to your collection. You will be thoroughly impressed by the fun you can have with some of the features and you might even learn something in the process. The great thing about history games is they teach you as you play them.
