This is a game that I missed first time round, but what a game it is. You play as an American OSS sniper as World War II is drawing to a close and have to carry out a series of important and dangerous missions with little help from the Allied forces.
As the title suggests, the game primarily focuses on sniping, but you do have other weapons for close quarter combat should you be discovered and need to fight your way out. Stealth is the key in this game, shoot and move, stay in the shadows and don’t let the enemy see or hear you. There is a high amount of realism with long range shots needing you to allow for gravity and wind to hit the target.
Good shots are rewarded with the innovative ‘bullet cam’ replay, which can be a bit gruesome at times. The entire campaign can be played co-operatively split screen on the same console, and this game is highly recommended for coop gaming fans. The graphics do look a little dated now, but the gameplay is exceptional.
