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…

Fish, Hitler, And Naughty Language: DLC Is Bloody Weird

What do Hitler, Snoop Dogg, George Washington, and Shakespeare have in common? If you said they all appear in Rik Mayall's autobiography Bigger Than Hitler, Better Than Christ*, you're wrong. Washington and Snoop aren't mentioned in that. The correct answer is that each has been digitised and reformed--Weird Science style--into your games as DLC. There's a lot of DLC out there, ranging from the mundane…

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…

Deadshot: Sniper Elite – Nazi Zombie Army Is Out

Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army is quite possibly the last game that will ever be made. The title itself is the culmination of everything that has been achieved in the field of interactive entertainment. As the game is now out, I've honoured the occasion by making a short list of important occurrences in the launch trailer. You can find them, and it, below.

Rebellion’s Mystery Game… Sniper Elite With Zombie Nazis

A couple weeks ago, Richard - that mad master of international intrigue and puns, our resident pioneer of spiderfear - stumbled across a teaser video for a mystery project from Sniper Elite creator Rebellion/2000AD. It was all spooky-like and featured running, which is the kind of thing that prompts one of three responses from a person: 1) Zombies? 2) Zombies! or 3) [Drawn-out sigh] ...Zombies.…

Headshotter Well Good: Sniper Elite V2 Expands

Rebellion's Sniper Elite V2 was quite good but not great, wasn't it? Come on, do my job for me, I'm tired. Also lazy. Also playing Retro City Rampage (WIT very soon) has fried my ability to concentrate on anything. Kill me, basically. My point, if indeed I do have one, is that the quite good Sniper Elite V2 has some DLC, and hopefully that is…

The RPS Verdict: Sniper Elite V2

World War II shooter Sniper Elite V2 has topped the all-format charts in the UK for the past couple of weeks, which meant it was time to turn the searchlight of RPS judgement on this high flier. Was it one of the great FPS sniping experiences? Or had Rebellion really just given everyone a good excuse to put a bullet in Hitler? Turns out that…

Scope And Gory: Sniper Elite V2 Demo

The demo for Sniper Elite V2 is now available on Steam, having previously been holed up in consoleland, waiting for a chance to break from cover and dash across to nestle inside your tower. Once there, it'll scan the room for enemies to gratuitously shoot in the spleen. The level provided, which has been specially tweaked for demonstration purposes, does contain some sniping, although I…

Hands On: Sniper Elite V2

Being taken to an undisclosed location and surrounded by men chatting idly about firearms is something more associated with hostage situations than press events. And yet here I was. I had accepted RPS’ mission to go out to the countryside and shoot WWII sniper rifles with complete strangers, despite harbouring very straightforward phobias of both bullets and dying of bullets. It’s not that I hate…

Scoping Out Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 And Sniper Elite V2

Morning sniper fans. Remember when there were no sniper related games around? The army's stealthiest strategist has never commanded an audience, preferring camo and a nice bush to kicking down doors and shouting bad things about your various female relatives. But soon there will be two sniper game vying for your beady eyes. I've already spoken a bit about Sniper Elite V2, so the newest…

A Snippet Of Sniper Elite V2 Footage

I still don't quite know if Sniper Elite V2 is as open and as stealthy as I'd like it to be. My hope is that it's a bit like Hidden And Dangerous, just sniper-centric, but then I wake up every morning hoping for that game. This new walkthrough video shows one mission, trying to get an angle to snipe Müller, sliced into tiny chunks, so…

Wait For The (Bullet) Drop: Sniper Elite V2 Killcam Video

If Sniper Elite V2's Killcam of the Week is a thing now, then I'm all for it. Simple, effective delivery of bullets to the brain over distance has always been my favourite thing in games, even better when we get to join the bullet on their journey, to share the excitement of their life's ambition of making a skull's acquaintance. Rebellion's WW2 sniper sim puts…

Fancy Shootin’: Sniper Elite V2 Trailed

Snipers are like normal soldiers, but much further away. Except when they are behind you! Yikes. All these sniper-things are illustrated in a new non-gameplay trailer from the men at Rebellion, who are currently remaking Sniper Elite to be even more man-shot-in-head-from-half-a-mile-away than ever before. The game itself is out next year, so hopefully we'll actually get to see some in-game footage between now and…

Sniper Elite V2 Version “Specifically” For PC

Games about shooting people in the head remain moderately popular, it seems, because Sniper Elite is back, Back! BACK! And baddies are going to get shot in all kinds of locations, but particularly in the head. Not only that, but the new game is being self-funded by Rebellion, whose bossman Jason Kingsley has said they wanted to create a PC-specific version which “will be built…
