Sniper Elite 4
Sniper Elite 4 is a superb adaptation, capable of shrinking Karl Fairburne's Italian adventure into a pocket size while keeping the strengths of the original game intact. If you already played Sniper Elite 4 three years ago and aren't itching to replay it in a portable format, your savings would be better spent elsewhere, given the absence of exclusive content.

"Minus some major and minor technical issues, Sniper Elite 4 is the pinnacle of the series. The story is straightforward and enjoyable but the gameplay is where the fun's at. Its diversity and amount of possibilities are good ol' sniping fun. You will spend hours in each map performing objectives and taking names through the X-Ray system. Which are brutally and beautifully on display thanks to the graphics. They also bleed over nicely into the rich environment. Here's hoping some problems are fixed because semi-open world stealth/action games are rarely this consistently entertaining."
Sniper Elite 4 is in a class all its own with its long-ranged shooting, and quite frankly – don’t we all want to give it to a few Nazis these days?
Sniper Elite is one of the best stealth action shooters. In this instalment we have wider range of movements, the mechanics are refined and we can actually finish every single level guns blazing. For the first time there is no need for stealth if we don't appreciate silence.

In a time where games rely on updates, patches, and DLC to become what the game should have been at launch, it was very refreshing to see Sniper Elite 4 release without any glaring weaknesses or issues.
This is definitely a brutal and beautiful shooter that takes the aspect of sniping to new heights.
Sniper Elite 4's advancements make it the best entry in the franchise to date and a must-have for anyone with a penchant for stealth-based action.
There may not be anything ground-breaking on offer with Sniper Elite 4, but that's not to say this game isn't worth your time. It builds on the previous games in a way that feels subtle and natural, and Rebellion's experience with the franchise means that whether you have been with the series from day one, or are just discovering it for the first time, you will be in for one hell of a treat.
If you prefer your shooters to be more methodical or enjoy taking out enemies with pinpoint accuracy rather than just blindly rushing into skirmishes, Sniper Elite 4 will delight your trigger finger. Whether you're a long-time series fan or someone just who wants to test their sniping skills, Sniper Elite 4 hits its target.
Ultimately, Sniper Elite 4 not only carries on a tradition of excellence for the franchise, but elevates it to new heights. The focus on stealth and long-range combat provides for a rather unique experience among shooters. Larger levels and multi-use items provide even more freedom over past entries to tackle missions in whatever way you want. The biggest complaint is that finding an online multiplayer match may be difficult without friends, but if you can find one, it works well. If you're looking for a new shooter to dive into, Sniper Elite 4 should be at the top of your list.
