Sniper adventure is a little off target ; Sniper Elite III (PC, PS3, XBOX 360/One ) By Cheryl Mullin Games Reviewer [South Wales Echo (UK)]
(South Wales Echo (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) IT'S time to get your stealthy long-range shooter at the ready, the Sniper Elite series is back - and on the next gen consoles.
Continuing the story of elite OSS sniper Karl Fairburne during World War II, this third outing takes players to the unforgiving yet exotic terrain of North Africa.
Locked in against a deadly new foe, the action is fairly tense - even if the plot is tissue thin.
There are still the signature X-Ray-style long-range takedown opportunities, where a see-through glimpse of vital organs offers viscerally varied ways to dispense with the bad guys.
While not without its flaws - the poor AI being my main gripe - Sniper Elite III does succeed in delivering a fun shooter experience for all gaming capabilities.
RATING: 7/10 - Sharp-ish shooter BARGAIN BUY: Pounds 24.85 www.ShopTo.Net
