It is a remake of Rebellion's 2005 game Sniper Elite. The game takes place in the same timeframe and location - the Battle of Berlin in April 1945 - but now the main character, an American Office of Strategic Services agent, must either kill or capture scientists involved in the German V-2 rocket programme. It was named by IGN as one of the 'biggest shooters' of the year.[/quote] [quote][B]Faq[/B] What platforms is the game being released on? Xbox360, PS3 and PC When is the release date?

Yes - more info on this will be coming later (Already out for PS3 and 360) How is the harder difficulty made harder? The hardest difficulty setting will strip away all the support players receive on the easier settings and provides a fully realistic simulation, meaning you will have to judge everything from wind adjustments to bullet drop What does the ballistics system include? Gravity, bullet drop and cross winds need to be taken into consideration - so you'll need to aim above and to the side of your target to compensate. How many bullet cam sequences are there? The clips are not pre-rendered, so we don’t know! We have counted 125... but expect more than 500 Is this game historically accurate? The story is inspired by true events.

Looks not that bad, although the animations look a bit weird. Also the conversations between the german soldiers sound terrible.
Yeah the animations are definitely clunky, but that's pretty easy to overlook compared to what other games have.
The killcam's look worth the price of the game alone.
I felt bad when he shot the guy who was carrying the wounded soldier :(
Wooo, sniper elite thread :dance: Been trying to snipe that fucking sniper through his scope all day :(
Demo is done, I'll play it and come right back here! :) [editline]15th April 2012[/editline] I think I just shot someone's grenade because it made them blow up. Whatever it was, it was pretty awesome. [editline]15th April 2012[/editline] Well that was pretty good, probably pick it up on pc later
Aiming with analogue sticks on consoles must be a pain in the ass, but I'll look forward to the chance of getting this for PS3 if I don't have the monies to get a new PC soon. Edit: The demo played real nice, despite the fact you have to use the analogue sticks. Sniper Elite V2, consider yourself bought.
The Killcam for when you hit a grenade (When you get lucky to see the body behind the explosion) You can just watch all the bones shatter
Anyone notice how far that guys balls were apart?
-What's the fucking point-
I got the original a few days ago and it's cool enough. Definitely getting the demo when it hits PC though it seems kinda moot. What I've seen so far seems cool enough to buy it.
Anyone have a savegame for the pc version? Im on the mission where youre with the german resistance and they're supposed to take out Tigers, but they're just standing there and I only had TNT to kill 2 out of 3 of them.
Title is suited for this game. I have never heard someone laugh so much and so hard on xbox live just because he managed to shoot some poor bastard in the Testicle. The entire party downloaded the demo and attempted a Testicle shot for about two hours after he calmed down.
Man, I saw the killcams and that alone made me want the game. Damned lack of PC demo!
oh man the killcams in this game are pretty damn wild
Made an awesome shot earlier. It went through the left eye of a guy walking along, went through his brain, out his skull, then exploded out of the back of his head, proceeded to land in the mouth of the nazi behind him, breaking his teeth and then blowing his throat apart. Love it :)
I want this game just for the kill cams. I don't know why, but I love seeing the bullet rip apart people's bodies. I am messed up.
I got an excellent nutshot a few minutes ago on the PS3 demo. A guy was running to help another guy that i shot in the gut, and i was trying to score a hit on this guy at 180 meters, hit him right in the nuts.
I love the killcams too. Though they'll get repeated after awhile, like VATs in Fallout 3.
do you always play as the same guy or do you also play as a russian or german?
[QUOTE=Burgervich;35586866]I want this game just for the kill cams. I don't know why, but I love seeing the bullet rip apart people's bodies. I am messed up.[/QUOTE] We all are. I've been replaying this and I seem to be getting less killcams than before. What activates them? They also need to smooth out the bullethole effects before release, the exit wounds are especially terrible in the demo. Also there are a few odd things about this game. A sniper bullet to the foot was enough to insta-kill someone, but a shot to the chest or stomach and they can be okay. And pull out your thompson and do some medium distance shooting. Keep a record of how many bullets it takes to kill someone. My best seems to be 8.
[QUOTE=Ermac20;35587974]do you always play as the same guy or do you also play as a russian or german?[/QUOTE] Play as the same guy.
Why won't anyone take cover in the second video in the OP? They just crouch out in the open. Other than that it looks fun enough. Loved the first game.
Seems pointless to play the germans, not like they won or anything.
[QUOTE=supertribute;35588414]Seems pointless to play the germans, not like they won or anything.[/QUOTE] seems pointless to play the russians, youre gonna win anyways
Supposedly you wear a German uniform in the very beginning of the game.
[QUOTE=supertribute;35588414]Seems pointless to play the germans, not like they won or anything.[/QUOTE] yeah but it would be neat to see a different perspective from a different character like in call of duty
[QUOTE=Archonos 2;35587991]They also need to smooth out the bullethole effects before release, the exit wounds are especially terrible in the demo.[/QUOTE] It might be a early build of them game. Who knows.. Maybe it's better when it's fully released.
[QUOTE=supertribute;35588414]Seems pointless to play the germans, not like they won or anything.[/QUOTE] If anything that'd be more interesting.
