A hearty improvement on Sniper Elite 3 that embraces freeform play, gets better in co-op, and most importantly lets us shoot things from very far away.
A lot of games tout the ability to “play how you want to play,” but Sniper Elite 4’s missions and mechanics actually are robust enough to back up that claim. Picking apart the Nazi war machine piece by piece, using whatever plan comes to mind, is a blast. The way it encourages you to stay mindful, experiment, and get better is a refreshing vote of confidence, even if it doesn’t always reward the extra effort you’re putting in.
Schlocky, supple and slicker than what's gone before, Sniper Elite 4 is a riotously entertaining WW2 stealth adventure.
A significant improvement on previous entries, with better stealth and AI making the sport of Nazi-hunting more enjoyable than ever.
Huge levels and an incredible array of new ways to take down your targets make Sniper Elite 4 a killer addition to the stealthy series
Mapping out your route, checking off objectives, and taking out your targets never ceases to be a blast
With its inconsequential story and addiction to inane splatter kills, Rebellion's Sniper Elite 4 doesn't subvert expectations. It doesn't have to necessarily: The appeal of shooting digital Nazis may never stagnate, and increasing the scale of each stage means more Nazis to kill and an increased potential for strategy. But a bigger scope makes the inherent problems more visible.
The grisly ballistics are still second to none, but it's the improvements made beyond the sniper scope that make Sniper Elite 4 a series standout.
Sniper Elite 4 comes across as a fully-realized result of the shifts Rebellion set in motion with the previous game, and proves itself an ably constructed, often gorgeous, and thoroughly engrossing stealth-action shooter.
It's a really exciting time for the Sniper Elite. After three games of the same, generic third-person cover sniper nonsense, Sniper Elite 4 has put the series in a good position and showed a lot of potential for even more improvement, possibly elevating it to truly elite ranks. It's not quite there, yet, though. With no details you can boil down my review to "You're good. Now get better."
Sniper Elite 4 comes back to the top of the war stealth games. Great variety of possibilities and non-stop action with a very good recreation of Italy. Definitively, it is worth a try.

Sniper Elite 4 is easily the best in the series so far. It’s still the same methodical stealth game at its core, but Rebellion have added to that with more possibilities for the player, bigger and more open maps, and a handful of new modes.
Sniper Elite 4 offers more of the same great gameplay that its predecessors were known for while tightening it up for the current generation.
Sniper Elite 4 succeeds in presenting a slow and tense atmosphere the closer to you get to your targets. Sneaking around a level through the darkness and taking out a target from a great distance without getting caught it one of the most satisfying experiences. It's a shame that these moments are few and far in between, and you spend most of your time with highly aggressive enemy AI. This can get really frustrating after a few hours of gameplay and the only thing that keeps you playing is looking forward to the next sniping mission and seeing it through the kill cam.

Rebellion brings Sniper Elite 4 on the italian shores with the well know formula and some marginal improvements. The result is a well crafted experience and the extra composed by the possibility to play coop and versur with other players.

Sniper Elite 4 is an overly conservative game that does not introduce important new features but it's still funny as hell.

A solid sharpshooting experience that knows where its strength lie. The open ended nature of each level, as well as the myriad ways to despatch enemies makes each level interesting, but it is the X-Ray kills that remain the centrepiece of this particular franchise.
Sniper Elite 4 isn't without its flaws, but it delivers a number of noteworthy improvements over previous games in the series to make it an engrossing experience. The gruesome X-ray kill cams still haven't gotten old, and the more expansive and dense levels make the core gameplay all the more entertaining. It's definitely the best in the series yet, and is worth checking out for longtime fans and newcomers alike.
Looking down the scope and holding your breath to line up that perfect shot in Sniper Elite 4 is exhilarating, as are the subsequent Kill Cams. It's just a shame that the poorly delivered story and wooden characters get in the way.
