You can save whenever you want, so you don’t have to invest whole evenings at a time. Saves are limited, but not too stingy, and they’ll come in extremely handy. Sniper Elite is harder than juggling in zero-gravity, and if you like your games to have constant gunfire, you’d best approach purchase as cautiously as a Russian WWII tank patrol. It’s not poorly designed by any means - it’s just a tightrope experience of high tension and painstaking baby-steps.
It’s not as glorious as it sounds: Sniper Elite is a game about patience and care, one where noise, aggression and speed are pitfalls instead of springboards. It’s the tail-end of WWII, and you’re pretty much alone in a series of stark, ruined environments. In truth, war has never felt this empty, but it’s nevertheless a wide open gaming space that’s absolutely buzzing with tension.
