Genre: Stealth/Action

Director: Colin Harvey

Release Date: February 14th 2017

I decided to revisit Sniper Elite 4 for review; the fourth game in the third person WW2 shooter series and I had a blast doing so. This game expands on the groundwork laid by its predecessors. If you are just coming off of a story driven game and are just looking for something satisfying and fun, then this is perfect for you. The story and characters are paper thin and the voice acting is all over the place in terms of quality, but that’s not why you come to Sniper Elite, you come to watch a Nazi’s brains explode from the sheer impact of your well placed bullet.

This is definitely the best game in the series in terms of it’s game-play systems. The control given to the player is clear and specific and if you miss a shot, you have no one to blame but yourself. The infamous X-ray cam makes a glorious return and it is even more detailed and brutal than in previous entries. No matter how many times you make a pair of Nazi testicles go pop from across a beautiful Italian town, it never gets old.

No Nazi babies for you pal.

The other great thing about this game is its various lush environments. There is an array of different maps that you work your way through during the game’s campaign and each is unique and well thought out enough to give you a challenge, but also make you feel like a total bad-ass when you land a near impossible shot in equal measure.

Let’s paint the town red… with Nazi blood.

Although the landscapes are nice to run around in and function well in terms of matching with the game’s game-play style, the quality of the graphics itself isn’t going to astonish anyone. Even for a game released around halfway through the PS4’s life-cycle, this looks at best, like a late generation PS3 game. Again though, it doesn’t really matter here, as I don’t know anyone who is buying Sniper Elite 4 for it’s graphical quality.

Overall, there is a ton of fun to be had here. Don’t think too much about the story and just enjoy systematically working your way through each various map, popping Nazi skulls as you go. I am very glad that I got to revisit this modern classic, so much so that I played it enough to snag the Platinum Trophy.
