Default Sniper Elite V2

...just downloaded the demo off the USA store.

I wasnt expecting much, I was disappointed to hear before playing the demo that it was third person, and to be honest it didnt light my fire on the details.


however... i liked the demo a lot, unless i hear or see bad things about this, its mine day one.

I just had a quick go at the demo and was quite impressed myself. Although there were a few times where I died when I shouldn't have, and not down to me sucking at the game, but rather cheaply by the game.

They also need to change the colour of the arc when used to throw grenades, there's a lot of yellow in the demo from the sun shining and the pale coloured background of the city, so why do they choose to use a yellow arc that blends in with everything making it impossible to tell where you're chucking the grenades. Also I'd be pressing the R2 button to equip a grenade getting it ready to chuck it but my character wouldn't equip, and yes I did still have grenades to chuck.

I'm gonna wait for the reviews to come out and maybe wait for a price drop too. But it's now something I will consider, whereas before I'd no interest at all.

im not even sure i threw a grenade, i mite check that out...

i have a distinct impression that this is early build, so although there probably wont be drastic changes, i imagine there will be a few.


..if you do play it again, try going for a nut shot.

I surprisingly enjoyed the demo and that 2nd vid made me lol.

I think it was the slow pace of the game that I really liked though I was playing it on the easiest difficulty so maybe that changes on the harder modes.

I enjoyed the V2 demo too, But I think that I still like "Sniper Ghost Warrior" better.
S:GW has the same bullet time, and also shows off the bullet's resulting damages too, but doesn't show the skeletal insides being hit.

Anyway, It's been out on the 360 for about a year now & is now either out, or is soon coming out for the PS3 too with extras that the 360 version didn't get.

Biker.. its been out on PS3 for ages now, well at least in the UK. the version I brought months ago had all the updates and new maps that arent on the 360 ver.. the platinum ed has just been released, but you can pick this up for under a tenna over here, so why anyone would pay 20 new for it, god knows. Although I enjoyed it.. the clipping in the game drove me insane!

the most annoying thing about it was all the feedback from the 360 version was that the clipping was horrendous, so even though you could argue that they did sort it out a little on the ps3 ver, it certainly wasn't enough. but then when you are making a game based on crawling on your belly through a jungle, its a nightmare for clipping, so they probably didnt bother testing it too hard.


but I know that Sniper: GW2 is on its way, that should be really good. I think for me I would choose Sniper Elite V2 over S:GW1, but if they get it right in no.2 ...then S:GW2 could be very awesome.

Dillon,
Thanks for the 411, I didn't realize the PS3 version was already out.
So now I'll have to hunt down a cheap used copy for my collection, and to also check out the extras in our version too.

yeah, its been tweaked here and there, and theres new multiplayer maps, and possible new weapons too...

I think that S:GW has to be FPS, to make you feel immersed in that area, and Sniper Elite benefits from being third person imho, I think if that was an FPS it would be clumsy.

both worth playing for sure, well I can say that with certainty about S:GW, and only assume with Sniper Elite, but will know soon enough.



...tho with talking about S:GW now, makes me want to play it again! I know i was being precious about the clipping, lol... im now starting to think "was it all that bad.. honestly?" ..im sure it was, but still.. hmmm

oh why was I cursed with a love of FPS games.. WHY!
