About Sniper Elite 3

Sniper Elite 3 sees American OSS agent Karl Fairburne on assignment in North Africa during WWII to assist intelligence efforts and provide sharpshooter skills to Allied forces within exotic, rugged and open land. As part of his mission, Karl learns of a secret "wonder weapon" tank program which, should it become a reality, has the potential to crush any Allied force in its path and turn the tide of the war.

While not without its flaws, Sniper Elite 3 remains a compelling, tactically-rewarding shooter that fans of the genre would do well to snap up asap.

We like

  • The open environments, which allow for greater strategic freedom
  • Plenty of optional collectibles and objectives to tackle, plus solid online modes
  • Kill cam is satisfyingly gruesome as ever

We dislike

  • Patchy AI
  • Some noticeable performance issues
  • The lack of a decent story and compelling hero
