Worth. Every. Penny. The most fun and original Sniper Elite game to date, with much improved level designs and ever more visceral, violent imagery. Sniper Elite III: Ultimate Edition is a must for anyone who thinks they might enjoy a bit of sniping action or even just likes stealth action games. The modest price tag (in comparison to many PS4 games) and the lovingly crafted game really do make this genuinely recommendable!

Sniper Elite III is a very good game overall, but this Ultimate Edition is not quite as definitive or complete as it should have been. Some of the DLC is simply not included here, and there are still some annoying, overt bugs which should have been squashed by now. These two main issues temper my ability to highly recommend it, especially to those who have already purchased the original release.

An entertaining and challenging sniping/stealth game that holds up for most of its eight expansive levels and supplemental campaigns. The action can get a little repetitive at times, but it's still a lot of fun, and its kill cam offers some great moments.

While the basic gameplay mechanic gets it right, the lackluster story and cement-headed AI keep this title from greatness.  If you are looking to try something different, Sniper Elite III Ultimate Edition is definitely worth a shot (sorry, couldn't resist).

Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition on Switch is a great way to play the game, though you might not want to do it on the train since the gore is off the charts.

Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition is a nice port of Sniper Elite 3 with all the DLC included. The gameplay is tactical and requires patience, which may not be for everyone. Some tasks and situations can be frustrating, but you can still have a good time.

If you’ve never played Sniper Elite 3 before, like third-person shooters laced with stealth and have ever wondered what a bullet does to a person’s insides as it rips through them, definitely pick it up. Chances are you won’t be disappointed.

Overall, I had fun with the game. At times the controls proved to be difficult with the handheld mode, so I switched to having the Switch docked and used the controller on the TV instead. The aiming function takes a little bit of time to get adjusted to after having played other shooters before this one. Sniper Elite III: Ultimate Edition releases on October 1st for $39.99.

It's still not as good as Sniper Elite 4, but years of patches and DLC have improved it to the point where this is a viable alternative for Switch owners.

Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition acquits itself nicely on Nintendo Switch. It looks good, it performs solidly, there's a couple of nice tweaks made for the Switch, and there's a wealth of great stealthy sniping content to be found within this compilation. Really it's a fairly standard feeling port, but alongside the V2 remaster, it's a good excuse to revisit the series and see how far it's evolved.
