Developed by Rebellion Developments and published by 505 Games, Sniper Elite V2 places you in intense war-torn environments where enemies are as cunning as you. The single-player campaign in the game starts out with you carrying weapons and various types of munitions. You can carry an SMG, a sniper rifle and a sidearm. There are other types of weapons that you can unlock as you progress through the game, but you should put more thought towards what explosives you carry.
Every explosive is unique as each explodes in a different way. From trip wires, landmines, dynamite to grenades, choice of explosives will determine how well you can take out the enemy in the battlefield. Explosives can be placed strategically to trigger a massive explosion, allowing you to silence a group of enemies easily. However, the primary objective of the game is to move as stealthily as possible.
The best way to take down your enemies is to be aware of your environment. Pistol shots, melee kills and rifle shots can be masked by the sound of explosions happening elsewhere. Sniper Elite V2 is all about patience. The more patient you will be, the more kills you can garner. You can get the best kills when you are following the rules of an expert sniper. The game allows you to exhale slowly, slowing time and giving you a wider zoom to target your enemies.
The camera in the game is designed in such a way that it tracks the bullet after leaving the barrel till the point of impact. If you have planned a kill with utmost precision, then this feature will give you the best view of your enemy falling to the ground. You also have an option to opt for X-ray vision, allowing you to see how bones shatter when a bullet pierces through your opponent’s body.
The other features in the game range from enemy tagging to aim assists. This makes the game easier to play, but Sniper Elite V2 is best enjoyed when these are turned off as it amps up the difficulty level. If you like to team together with friends or players across the world you can do it in this game as it supports online play. The different modes in the game are Kill Tally, Bombing Run, Overwatch and many others. You can also play the main campaign along with a friend as the game supports cooperative multiplayer. The updates, wallpapers and other content for the game can be downloaded directly from Xbox Marketplace.
