PlayStation 2Game Chronicles
Don’t try this one if you favor the rocket launcher over the rifle – you won’t get far. But if you’re willing to invest the time and effort to do it right, you’ll find “Sniper Elite” a high tension, heart pounding, and exciting game with some seriously versatile challenges and a respectable replay value. So remember: one shot, one kill. And don’t forget to breathe when it’s over.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing this game and although its nature won’t appeal to the John Rambo type players, it will appeal to the players that love sniping. Other games might feature a sniper rifle but none have gone this far as to base a game around the whole mentality of the sniper. It’s good; it’s fun and definitely worth picking up if you have some patience in you. Yes it’s set in WWII like so many other titles but I think this game has enough charm and style of its own to make it stand out in the crowd.

Podsumowując, powtórzę to co powiedziałem na początku - gra jest świetna, ale specyficzna, bardzo charakterystyczna i jak sama nazwa wskazuje - elitarna. Jeżeli nie uśmiecha się Wam kilkuminutowe czołganie zalanymi deszczem ulicami Berlina, nużące wyczekiwanie na dogodną do strzału chwilę, czajenie się w jakichś dziurach i ruinach, unikanie za wszelką cenę bezpośredniej konfrontacji z wrogiem... to dajcie sobie spokój. Call of Duty 2 czeka, idźcie się pobawić w Rambo - Sniper Elite jest dla prawdziwych twardzieli. Szkoda że nie dla Polaków, bo jakoś żaden z naszych dystrybutorów nie zainteresował się dotąd tym tytułem. Głupia sprawa, ale mówi się trudno, może się obudzą... na wiosnę.

Sniper Elite hat mich richtig begeistern können.Ja, es gibt einen richtigen Hasslevel (Schwerwasseranlage, aber das ist nur einer von 28) und ja, das hier und da aufgezwungene Arcade Gameplay hätte man sich schenken sollen (macht etwa ein Viertel bis ein Fünftel des Spieles aus), aber kaum ein Shooter hat mir in den letzten 3-4 Jahren so gut gefallen, wie dieser hier. Und da schon in Spielen wie IGI, RTCW, Iron Storm, Red Faction, Chaser etc. immer meine Waffenwahl auf ein Gewehr mit Scope fiel, ich damit den Großteil bestritt und bei Unreal Tournament Stunden auf dem CTF-Face The World Turm verbrachte, war dieses Spiel richtig auf mich zugeschnitten und das Beachten des Windes, der Schwerkraft usw. machte das ganze - nun ja "neu" wäre übertrieben- zumindest sehr interessant und die "Belohnung" Kugelkamera für einen guten Schuß motivert natürlich ungemein. Das Spiel lieferte, je nach Vorgehensweise, 15-20 Stunden tolle Unterhaltung.

Słów kilka o grze. Grafika niestety nie oszałamia, ale jest na przyzwoitym poziomie. Ścieżka dźwiękowa generalnie bez zarzutu, natomiast grywalność jak najbardziej na TAK, jak to mawia pewien showman z telewizji. Szczególnie gorąco polecam tym Graczom, którzy najlepiej czują się w realiach II Wojny Światowej.

Besides that gripe, picking up the PS2 version of Sniper Elite gets you a solid multiplayer game, and a singleplayer game that's challenging, but at least as much so for its grainy graphics as for its unforgiving enemies. If you've got the means, go for the Xbox port on this one.

Podsumowując Sniper Elite jest symulatorem snajpera z elementami FPS. Duża grywalność, świetny klimat, genialne udźwiękowienie, olbrzymi realizm oraz wiele godzin zabawy niwelują niedociągnięcia graficzne. Jest to gra godna polecenia dla każdego kto ma cierpliwość i nie jest nastawiony na zabijanie tysięcy przeciwników, przedzierając się przez tereny wroga.

Aside from a few awkward moments, Sniper Elite is a perfectly entertaining game that handles sniper action as good as any other action game. It might not take the war game genre to whole new heights but at least you will love playing the part of a seasoned sniper. Give this one a try if you love stealth action games.

Sniper does a commendable job of creating the bombed-out environments of the collapsing city of Berlin with effective visuals and matching soundtrack of random gunshots, screams, and incoming mortar fire. The hybrid first-person shooter and third-person gameplay mechanics are well served by the responsive controls. Some rough spots abound, however--most notably, an inconsistent frame rate on some missions, and lack of hand-to-hand combat. Plus, some enemies have goofy facial expressions after being hit by a "kill shot" that tracks in slow motion from the barrel of your rifle to the intended target. If you're prepared for the deliberate nature of its gameplay, Sniper Elite is a rewarding way to fight WWII from the comfort of your couch. Just keep in mind the prerequisite degree of patience.

Sniper Elite has a certain difficulty and pace to it that usually caters to a select group of gamers. I can definitely see a Splinter Cell fan really getting into Sniper Elite. The subject matter is far different, and the sniping accent is unique, but the elements of stealth, gameplay difficulty, and general pace of play are reminiscent of many-a Fisher mission. If you’re looking for non-stop action, then you may want to stick to FPS camping, but if you like your games heavy on slow sleuthing, and sniping, then Sniper Elite is a the way to go.

Reasumując, stwierdzam z przyjemnością, że gra ta zasługuje w pełni na ocenę 8/10. Jest tu trochę niedociągnięć, ale nie przysłaniają one radości płynącej z rozgrywki. Jedyne co psuje efekt, to jakość polonizacji. Ale i to można przeżyć, bowiem polskie są tylko napisy, a cała reszta w języku Szekspira. Nie co dzień trafia się pozycja mogąca aspirować do miana symulatora strzelca wyborowego, w dodatku za jedyne 20 złotych, bo taka jest cena delatliczna wyznaczona przez polskiego dystrybutora, OniGames. To tyle, wracam teraz do mojego polowania w "Sniper Elite". Coś Rosjanie zrobili się zbyt pewni siebie i pora to zmienić. Oddalam się zatem dyskretnie, mając po cichu nadzieję, że powstanie kiedyś następna część tej gry z jeszcze lepszą oprawą graficzną i tocząca się w czasach nam współczesnych.

Le saviez-vous ? Il y a cinquante ans se terminait en Europe et dans le monde un conflit dont l’ampleur n’a, à ce jour, pas encore été égalée. Un conflit armé, qui a touché l’humanité dans ce qu’elle avait de plus cher, la renvoyant sur les bancs de l’école après une sévère punition en vies humaines. Ce conflit, on l’a appelé la deuxième Guerre Mondiale. Et depuis quelques années, c’est devenu le filon porteur de nombreux développeurs de jeux de par le vaste monde. Sniper Elite est de ceux-là. Mais se situe-t-il dans la bonne moyenne ? Est-il vraiment différent des autres ? Faut-il le bouder comme un collabo et en raser les concepteurs ? Procédons par ordre. Car c’est bien connu : en cas de conflit, l’ordre et la discipline sont des alliées fidèles. Non ? Ah bon…

Als je het geduld en het vaak langzame tempo kan incasseren, niet afkerig bent van wat tactiek en realisme; en bereid bent om de Tweede Wereldoorlog eens doorheen een sluipschuttersgeweer te bekijken, dan moet je deze Sniper Elite gewoon proberen. Drie moeilijke snipershots met succes uitvoeren geeft gewoonweg een grotere kick dan op dezelfde tijd dertig vijanden met een machinegeweer in een andere shooter neer te halen. Ondanks pogingen tot variatie na een tijdje misschien wat repetitief, maar ook hier worden geduldige spelers beloond. Niet voor gamers van het ADHD type.

Der Weltkriegs-Thriller zieht seine Spannung aus den Katz-und-Maus-Spielen mit Heckenschützen, aus dem Anpirschen, dem Verstecken, dem Zuschlagen. Wenn ich minutenlang durch die Trümmer gekrochen, Patrouillen ausgewichen und bei jedem Husten zusammengezuckt bin, ist die Befriedigung umso größer, wenn ich mein Ziel im Fadenkreuz habe.

If you're a big fan of tagging enemies with sniper bullets and watching your calculated handiwork culminate in a gore-filled, slow motion replay, then you'll definitely enjoy Sniper Elite. The game is basically all sniping, since most close range combat is awkward and ineffective. At times you'll be frustrated by how accurate enemy seem to be or how often you're caught by surprise, despite your best scouting efforts, by groups of foes triggered by certain events. You'll have to be able to put up with reloading your game multiple times, but you'll be rewarded with a deep sniping system and large array of combat options, such as protecting your sniping spot with tripwire grenades. If you have a friend nearby, definitely grab them to try this game out, it's way more exciting with two people, especially because you can revive. Though Sniper Elite doesn't do anything revolutionary, it's a fun game greatly aided by its expanded gameplay options.

If you've played all the other World War II shooters and are looking for something a little different, you'll enjoy Sniper Elite as long as you have the time and patience to really get the most out of it. If you have an itchy trigger finger and love gratuitous explosions and heavy weaponry, you'll probably want to pass on this game. However, if you like stealth games you'll find a lot to like in Sniper Elite.

Alles in allem bin ich echt überrascht. Wenn die Steuerung etwas durchdachter gewesen wäre, hätte der Titel mit Sicherheit einen Award abgestaubt, aber so ist das wirklich etwas nervig, weil man oft mehr mit sich selbst als mit dem Gegner beschäftigt ist. Der Rest des Spiels ist allerdings mehr als nur in Ordnung.

While it is true that Sniper Elite is not going to change the genre as we know it, I am happy to see a non-squad based war simulation that uses someone other than a grunt as your main character. The realism may turn off some run and gun gamers, but even those fans will have a hard time not appreciating what Sniper Elite brings to the table in terms of great and entertaining game play.

I have to admit this game kept me interested to the very end, it's well laid out and the story line flows reasonably well, the sniping is realistic but easy to get used to. If you are the kind of gamer who loves playing as a sniper and going for that perfect shot, then this is the game for you!

If you have a hankering for a slower-paced WW2 shooter where your patience and stealth are rewarded, you may like Sniper Elite quite a bit. If you have a friend who is in a similar mindset then pick this title up immediately. If you are just playing the single player game, you will probably get bored after a few hours in. For what it’s worth, I had fun with the co-op, I didn’t mind the online, and the single player got old.

Sniper Elite is een erg coole Third Person Shooter die echter zonder enkele vervelende bugs nog heel wat beter had kunnen zijn.

Above all else, Sniper Elite is only for the patient gamer. If you like to blow and go throughout an entire game without ever slowing down, don’t even waste your time with this game, but if you like to watch the rewards of your meticulously calculated homework, then this is definitely the game for you.

The better of Elite’s 28 missions allow for several solutions and involve myriad covert elements; for example, you can throw rocks to distract patrols and set trip-wire grenade traps to punish unsuspecting toes. A few frustrating areas necessitate repeated reloads, but at least you have unlimited saves at your disposal. One other big disappointment is the absence of a co-op multiplayer mode, which got cut from the PC version. Still, If you need a break from the usual run and gun, Sniper Elite’s twist on the traditional WWII shooter makes it a fun choice.

Even as I write this I’m still not sure what to put as a final verdict on this whole package. Of course, that in itself speaks a bit about the quality of the game. If you’re a gamer with a very heavy interest in war games, and a ton of patience then Sniper Elite is a game worth checking out. If you’re in the demographic they were apparently shooting for then the games sub-standard graphics and sometimes repetitive game play will probably be outshined by the open environments and the well-handled gunplay. But if you’re the kind of player who hates losing thirty minutes of crawling and sniping to one enemy you couldn’t find because of the fuzzy graphics, which I bet is a fair amount of those reading this, then you may want to skip over Sniper Elite for something an action title that has a little more action in it.

Evidently Sniper Elite deserved far better than to be slipped into an uncaring market with no marketing or retail support, but that's the reality for most games these days. From first impressions it's easy to take one look at it and assume it's a rather low-budget affair that does little that any number of other slicker, better looking titles haven't done a dozen times over. Yet what lies beneath its rather unspectacular veneer is a really well designed game that approaches the conflict from a different angle and provides a solid platform for a hugely entertaining game. Now all that needs to happen is for an ambitious publisher to expand Sniper Elites premise and fully realise its obvious potential, because the pickings would be rich if it did.

XboxDarkstation
In the end, Sniper Elite is exactly how it sounds on the box; it's a Sniper game that places you as, you guessed it, a sniper. I have to say that I enjoyed this game. It wasn't perfect, and the visuals had plenty of room for improvement, but it still was a good game. If you like sniping and want a game that focuses almost all of its attention on that, then check this game out as a rental you will find a lot of things to enjoy.

XboxAceGamez
Sniper Elite is a fantastic war game with a difference, focusing almost entirely on the slow-paced nature of sniping. Xbox Live really is something I recommend you check out with this game, as the satisfaction of bringing someone down with a long distance shot really does make it one that you will come back to again and again. It shouldn't cost more than £19.99 and for the money, you're getting a real bargain and plenty of longevity. The less patient and more action-oriented gamers might not warm to it so much, but if you're the kind of gamer that enjoys the chance to get a good sniping spot on your favourite online shooter, then this really is one game you must play. Now if you'll excuse me - some hapless soul has just wandered into my sights…

Pozostaje wystawić ocenę końcową – ile jest wart Sniper Elite? Na pewno jest to tytuł wart dłuższego kontaktu i ogrania. Rewelacyjny system snajperski, nieliniowe podejście do misji i dobre tło historyczne sprawiają, że gra się przyjemnie. Niestety po dłuższym czasie spędzonym z grą, całość staje się odrobinę nużąca i kolejne udane ‘ściągnięcia’ celów nie dają już takiej frajdy. Zabrakło chyba jakiejś charyzmy i ciągłości historii, bo kolejne zadania są od siebie dosyć mocno oderwane. Jeżeli jednak nie zależy ci na rozbudowanym wątku fabularnym, a pasjonujesz się snajperami i II Wojną Światową, to łap za karabin i ognia!

Sniper elite contains all the elements of a bad FPS or spy novel: a hokey title, a silly story, and an elite operative facing desperate odds behind enemy lines. Surprisingly, developer Rebellion squeezes in enough gameplay twists to make this budget FPS an enjoyable break from the norm.

XboxXBox Evolved
Sniper Elite is definitely not for everybody—perhaps only for those who truly appreciate the sniper in shooting games. It has the depth that a lot of people who love the sniping weapon have been dreaming of for quite a long time. If you can get past some AI problems, find a friend to play with, and excuse the average visuals you should have plenty of fun with Sniper Elite.

Das Spiel gerät oft ins Stocken - eine echte Herausforderung für Scharfschützen. Und ein Gruß an die Mitspieler legte den Titel komplett lahm. Lediglich acht Spieler sind auf den teils großen Karten zudem arg wenig. Die deutschen Version ist übrigens beschnitten, es fehlt die "Kopfschusskamera", die Treffer in Nahaufnahme zeigt.

Sniper Elite wins points for originality, and the gameplay works well, but it lacks a compelling narrative (the disjointed mission objectives don't cut it), and it rarely made me feel as tense as I thought it should.

Spannend ist es eigentlich schon, zwischen den Häuserschluchten auf Feinde zu lauern, mit dem Fernrohr die Umgebung abzugrasen, kleinste Bewegungen wahrzunehmen und im rechten Moment zu schießen. Dennoch kann mich das Programm nicht auf Dauer reizen. Nach einer Weile wird selbst dem geduldigsten Menschen beim ständigen Rumliegen und Lauern fad. Und geduldig bin ich nicht!

Encore un soufflé qui se dégonfle au moment d'arriver sur la table. Sniper Elite a plein de bonnes choses pour lui, se balader à plat ventre dans les ruines en esquivant les défenses ennemies jusqu'à trouver un trou de souris pour y vider son fusil est un défi stimulant, mais qui tourne au vinaigre quand on finit par pester contre un personnage lent et raide comme un piquet et des objectifs d'une difficulté parfois exaspérante.

Sniper Elite just doesn’t have that much to offer your average gamer. A few will disagree with me and see SE as a diamond in the rough, but those fans will be few and far between. The multiplayer livens things up a bit, but it’s done better in other games like Halo 2 and Call of Duty 2. Sniper Elite isn’t a terrible game, it just misses on so many levels that it could only appeal to a select few, and that’s sad because it’s very obvious that Rebellion knew what it was shooting for. Unfortunately, gameplay of an acquired taste, bland graphics, and merely serviceable audio helped them miss their mark.

Sniper Elite n’était déjà pas fameux sur consoles il y a 5 ans alors il est facile d’imaginer quel est le résultat aujourd’hui avec sa sortie sur la console de salon de Nintendo. Le jeu ayant été porté tel quel, avec toutefois un maigre effort d’adaptation au gameplay de la Wii, le résultat fait assez peine à voir. Laide et mal fagotée, l’aventure tourne court. Non, définitivement, sniper n’est pas jouer !
