The Sniper Elite V2 was always a highly anticipated game of 2012. Developed by Rebellion Developments, the game has been ported for various platforms like Windows, Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and others. This is the sequel to Sniper Elite, which was also released by the same Development team. The events portrayed in both the games happen at parallel timelines. The protagonist in this game is an American Sniper who is also the member of a crack unit of Strategic Services operatives. The main objective in the game is for you to take care of a group of scientists in charge of the German Rocket Program.
Synopsis and Features
The protagonist is Karl Fairburn, he is an Elite Sniper and an officer of his unit. He finds himself in Berlin during the 1945 war. The events take place during the last few days of the Second World War. This was the time when Operation Paperclip was in effect, a special operation that was connected to the German arms race to develop better and more destructive weapons against the allied forces. The American Unit was tasked with the safe retrieval of top German Scientists who were closely associated with the Rocket and the V-2 Ballistic Missile. The Player must fight against Nazi and Russian opponents in the game in order to get to the target. It is published by 505 Games.
The single player campaign in the game is extensive enough to take up quite a few hours of your time. The campaign has a gripping story that will immerse any player in long hours of gameplay. Apart from the single player mission that the story revolves around, the players can also go for the Multiplayer modes on offer. This adds a whole new dimension to Sniper Elite V2, letting you explore your skills extensively with other players from across the globe.
Just like how Snipers in real life face extensive pressure in terms of mental strain, physical difficulties and imminent danger to their own lives, in Sniper Elite V-2, these dangers are recreated in terms of counter-sniping, a scenario where other snipers will be hidden and looking through their scopes in search of you. You need to come up with a cunning strategy to work out the best possible way to finish missions. The game resorts to some detailed emulations when it comes to the Sniper missions. The details involve bullet motions in the air, through targets and even on ricochets with hard surfaces.
The game encourages you to factor in every environmental variable. You will need to account for wind direction, intensity or speed of the breeze, distance from the target, based on which these variables would change and even account for the earth’s gravity when distances are too great. Miss out on any one variable, and you will surely miss your target and risk being discovered before you can finish off your enemy.
The Kill cam is a feature that slows time down in order to display the trajectory of the bullet in higher detail. It follows the path of the bullet from the time it leaves the barrel of the high powered sniper rifle until it penetrates the target. When the Kill cam gets engaged, you will know that the last enemy of that stage has fallen.
The environments chosen for Sniper Elite V2 depict authentic World War II era battlefields and surroundings. The weapons, vehicles and other hardware shown in the game are also true to that era. Some of the examples are the Springfield M1903, Gewehr 43 and the hugely popular Mosin-Nagant 1891/30. The PS3 version of the game has a PEGI rating of 16 for military grade violence and strong language.
