Sniper Elite $2 sale

So...the almighty question everyone wants to know: is it worth half the cost of a sandwich combo?

I remember it suffering heavily from consolitis but that might have just been me.

Demo

The £2 price is tempting if it's ok.

It's $2. If you played the game half an hour you'll get more than your monies worth.

I bought it on sale a while back, and finished the single player in 10+ hours over a period of several months. It wasn't something that really grabbed my attention and drove me to finish it all in a weekend. However, if you like sneaking and making long distance head shots over and over again every once in a while you should get it.

The long distance Headshotting is well worth $2 imo:P (Played it a while back at a friends, and watched some vids and stuff, and now bought it, to play when I am bored).

Read some reviews on it, and it definitely sounds worth it. The drawbacks make it sounds like a frustrating puzzle at times.


gamespot's review seemed pretty detailed:

The Good

* Headshots
* Lengthy and challenging single-player campaign with some interesting and challenging missions
* Realistic bullet physics make long-range shooting challenging and satisfying
* Great sound puts you right in the middle of battle.


The Bad

* Some textures and characters are reused throughout the game
* Hit detection is a bit off sometimes
* Missions can take a long time to complete, so if you don't have a lot of patience you'll likely get bored.

Although this looks like low-medium budget game (I think it actually is), if it's sold for normal price I wouldn't buy it but for $2 I think I could have fun with this for a while, even if I don't I will have this game added to my growing Steam games list.

It didn't have consolitis at all.

It's a very good game, and is a great deal at $2.

Firstly it would be £2 for me an £1 is worth more than $1 so as cheap as it is I am not in the business of just jarateing away my money for 30 mins entertainment.

Hmmm it is possible I am thinking of something else but I was certain it was this someone mentioned the low res textures and hit detection and I am sure it was so the game would be good on the PS2 aswell.

It's not worth to waste your time on this game. If you have ever played the game in hardest mode, you will feel that the AI use some kind of trick to shot long distance. I can't even see my enemy. How the heck I get shot?

I think I'll pass on this one. Too much sniping for my liking.

I wasn't impressed after getting this game in a previous sale. Then again I'm a bit of a graphics and the game is rather ugly so that didn't help.

Still, if you don't mind spending most of your time crawling around in the dirt, in the middle of a deserted city sniping enemies from a far, it would probably be worth your $2.
