Sniper Elite 5 is a solid follow-up. It won’t change the formula or anyone’s mind who finds these games boring or shallow. Still being available on Game Pass day one is a huge bonus. It is more than worth playing and I recommend at least checking it out. It is unapologetic violence and the design is high quality. This is the definition of gaming fast food, a treat for all the senses.

Sniper Elite 5 does everything the previous installations did, except it does them better, in new and updated graphics. What are you waiting for? Get sniping!

Sniper Elite 5 is a culmination of many years of gameplay systems and development processes being polished to a mirror sheen. Making tremendous strides in both technology and visuals, Sniper Elite 5 can stand amongst the likes of its AAA contemporaries with gorgeous, realistic environments and visuals. Character modelling and animation could still use some refinement and the narrative left something to be desired, though the story thread was enough to provide adequate pacing for the action on screen. If you’re a fan of the series or looking to finally see what all the fuss is about, Sniper Elite 5 is the best the series has ever been.

Sniper Elite 5 is a very good vintage. Complete, generous and really fun in cooperation, the soft ticks all the boxes of the AA nice to be done on occasion.

There is a whole lot to like about Sniper Elite 5, especially if you are a fan of the series already. The non-sniping gunplay feels better than ever, and the maps are huge with plenty to do. There is a solid progression system that lets you unlock perks as you complete objectives and take down enemies, and the story is solid if unspectacular. The best-looking and sounding release in the series, with a handful of different entertaining modes to boot – this is absolutely a worthwhile play.

If you've liked the previous iterations of Sniper Elite, you'll only find this an enhanced and more enjoyable update. It may not convert sceptics, but this is still the best game in the series and it's the perfect time to jump into the franchise in all its dirt-hugging, ball-blasting glory.

The game succeed Diablo franchise's core mechanics such as grinding, the pleasure of looting items. The build structure using legendary equipment in the early to mid-game also immersive. However, the fun of growing your character is halved as soon as the way to strengthen it becomes to upgrading legendary gems. Moreover, the in-game payment system seems to failed to provide sufficient satisfaction compared to what have been invested.

Sniper Elite 5 makes small attempts at innovation but not enough to stop it from being a fairly safe entrant into the Sniper Elite franchise. The enhanced killcam, extensive weapon customization, and better skill trees help to improve the experience over Sniper Elite 4. Players will undoubtedly have fun roaming the large battlefields of France as long as they can get over the minor bugs, although we could do without those that can stop a playthrough in its tracks. While the standard multiplayer modes and Survival mode will keep players occupied for a while, Invasion mode is what will keep players coming back for more.

Sniper Elite is a fun game if you play in coop. Alone you will really challenge yourself, and quickly notice the game was meant to be played with a partner. It looks good, but could have been better. The x-ray shots keep on being really cool and during the nine hours the game lasts, you will not get bored easily.

Sniper Elite 5 is yet another conveyor belt product. The whole concept of a sniper sandbox-game still very fun, but after how great the fourth game was, this one feels like a step back.

Sniper Elite 5 is held back by a presentation stuck in the past and a forgettable story. Ultimately well-designed missions, player freedom, and great moment-to-moment gameplay win out. Resulting in a game that is fun on your own or with a friend.

Invasions make the gameplay in Sniper Elite 5 feel fresh, but in other respects it's almost the same game as Sniper Elite 4. This series starts to feel a bit stale, so in the future we'd like to see more innovations than just bigger maps and small gameplay improvements.

There is no denying that Sniper Elite 5 is the best game yet by Rebellion and the most complete entry in the series, but could it take the franchise to the next level and transform it from a mediocre experience to a top of the bar shooter? The answer is probably no.

After four Sniper Elites and four Zombie Army games, Rebellion decided it wasn’t quite done having us kill Nazis. With the new setting in France, the open map exploration, and new invasion mode, Sniper Elite 5 aims to keep things fresh for a nearly two-decade old franchise.
