Sniper Elite 4 Announced, Going To Italy

Rebellion are returning to World War 2 for more sneaky sniping action later this year, having today announced Sniper Elite 4. This time, Ian Elite is headed to Italy to fight with the resistance against the forces of fascism. While we see Nazis in movies and video games all the time, Mussolini and friends are less common. Is the most known pop culture image of…

Feature: The Beauty Of A Sniper's Patience

One vs. One In Sniper Elite Is Still As Tense As Games Get

The everlasting threat of a single bullet, the terrifying glint of a sniper scope in your eyes, and the darkness that covers your enemy make Sniper Elite V2 [official site] one of the most gripping gaming experiences I’ve had. You can't take your eyes off the screen for a second; instead, you must remain calm, remain patient, and study your environment. Was that sliver of…

Zombie Army Trilogy: When It Brains, It Pours

Zombie Army Trilogy [official site], the follow-up to Sniper Elite 3 as well as Nazi Zombie Army 1 and 2, is out now. As the 'Trilogy' in the name suggests, this package also includes Nazi Zombie Army 1 and 2, plus a third chapter based on Sniper Elite v3. Confused yet? Don't worry, there's plenty of delicious brains to go around.

Sniper Elite Spin-off Zombie Army Trilogy Announced

Yeah, I guess that is Adolf Hitler as a burning zombie demon sort of monster. Okay then. I imagine that's what you'd end up with if you formed a committee to design the video game villain players would feel least bad about killing. One person insisted he be a litterbug too, leaving a trail of Twix wrappers and Coke cans, but it was decided that'd…

WW2 Fanfic: Sniper Elite 3 DLC Saves Churchill

You would like to shoot Adolf Hitler, wouldn't you? You wouldn't want Winston Churchill to die, would you? No, you're not a monster, are you? Sniper Elite 3's big DLC packs focus on rewriting history, but it comes off a bit tacky to me. Yesterday brought the first part of a three-chapter DLC campaign about foiling a plot to assassinate Churchill and it's not the…

Scoping Strategies: Sniper Elite 3 Out Now

"German officer, your life force energy is fading." The screenshot made me hope for Treguard's tones but sadly it was not to be. Sniper Elite 3 could have taken the series in a bold new dungeon-crawling direction but further inspection reveals another WWII organ-busting simulator. That's not to say it's not worth your time and precious pennies though. The game is out in Blighty now,…

Stay On Target: Sniper Elite 3 Multiplayer Trailer

I find Sniper Elite's fascination with face-breaking slow-motion bullet impacts somewhat grotesque, because I'm exactly the kind of hand-wringing, self-loathing videogame journalist the internet commenters warned you about. That doesn't mean I don't like the core idea of hunkering down behind some crumbling buildings, fearing for my life and timidly scanning the treeline for fascists. It only means I'd rather play Sniper Elite V2's multiplayer,…

Penetrating Insight: Sniper Elite 3 Killcam Dev Diary

It's rare that videogame violence makes me feel uncomfortable. After all, it's just polygons, only code. I like the idea of games that purposefully make me feel uncomfortable with the heinous acts I commit - in ways more nuanced or subtle than po-faced script writing, at least. But I don't think that's what Sniper Elite 3 is going for with its X-Ray killcam. I think…

Cast A Beady Eye On This Sniper Elite 3 Trailer

Gaming confession time. I'll tell you all a secret if you respond with one of your own. Here's mine: I have played 31 hours of Sniper Elite V2. I have a good reason, though. I got a bit sucked into the multiplayer. In some way, the multiplayer solved a lot of the issues I had with the single-player game: the levels are non linear, and…
