Eurogamer’s Sniper Elite 3 Review is a Definite Bullseye
All marksmen – virtual and otherwise – might be interested in Sniper Elite 3. The latest entry in the series focuses on bigger, more freedom-oriented maps, better AI, and an overall more dynamic experience.
If you’re looking for the definitive review that tells you everything you need to know, check out Eurogamer’s excellent evaluation. Although the game only receives a 7, it’s clear that there are highlights worth mentioning, and critic Dan Whitehead expertly balances the positives and negatives.
The review also notes the combination of patience and the unmitigated viscera of an impacting bullet, which gives it a more literal, artistic vibe. And we always appreciate that.
Why We Like It:
— First, the intro, which is worthy of a separate recognition:
“There’s always been a linguistic connection between sex and violence, and no game illustrates it quite so viscerally as Sniper Elite. This is the series that has made its name by fetishising the entry of a bullet into the human body almost to the point of parody.“
— The critic cites the failings of previous entries and explains how the new installment has improved. This is essential, especially for the reader who has reservations based on his or her experiences with previous games in the series.
— It’s just so well-written. We need to see more of this in the industry.
