Any good game's, similiar to Sniper Elite for xbox, xbox 360, ps2, or pc?i loved that game, but it's impossible to find. doesn't have to be WWII, it can be modern, vietnam, cold war, WWII, what ever. just looking for a realistic sniping game. thanks alot.

R6 Vegas has a lotta sniping.
#3 Posted by RockToTheLed (1404 posts) -
yea, i have that game, and though it's fun, i really liked Sniper Elite because of the wind, aiming ahead, it just gave it a cool feature. alot of other games such as COD and R6, it's usualy just aim and fire. but thanks for the reply anyway.

I played the Sniper Elite demo for PC. It was intense.

does sniper elite work on 360?
#6 Posted by zzyang (217 posts) -
Probably. Alot of original games work on the 360.

Just chek the bckwards compatability list

doubt its on there

That is kind of a rare breed of game your looking for. Probably best you can hope for is a sequal to Sniper Elite.
#9 Posted by ALLstar9300 (1250 posts) -

they should make a good sniping game

there sniping in almost every shooting game but a mostly sniping game would rock

actually it is on the backwards compatible list, and you can buy sniper elite on ebay right now NEW for about $24

no but I would LOVE a star wars bounty hunter game with a focus on sniping.
#13 Posted by sonofabear17 (1941 posts) -
Silent Scope? i think they have a version of it for the original xbox. but i dont think there are any sniper games for the 360

Umm sorry to bring up this point especially considering that I have no idea how old any of you are but maybe instead of hoping for a "realistic" sniper game. Maybe you could join the NRA and your local shooting range and target shoot for fun or join a rifle team and shoot for fun and competition. Just a thought.

as much as i would love to do that,i'm only 16. so that's a bit impossible lol. i've gone shooting with my uncle numerous times, as well as airsofting and paintballing. but i would also like a game like this, especialy like the movie Shooter. and yes, Sniper Elite is backwards compatible for anyone who was asking. i just ordered it from Ebay, but i'm still hoping for a sequel. thanks to everyone who suggested ideas, and thanks to anyone else who suggests more. take care for now everyone. i'm off to play COD4 lol.

halo 3, battlefield 2: modern combat, gears of war, shadowrun, GRAW 1 + 2
#17 Posted by RockToTheLed (1404 posts) -

love the enthusiasm, but Halo 3, Gears, and Battlefield 2 aren't realistic sniping. that's just point and shoot. boom headshot. end. GRAW is a good choice, i've been playing the second alot. definetly has a great variety of rifles, and also the longer shots you have to wait a few seconds and wait four your breath to steady. pretty cool. i can't wait till i get Sniper Elite in the mail. 3 days tops hopefully! there isn't online co-op in it, is there?

lol yea i know, but it's just like...maybe i'm just watching too many movies. but for example, in Shooter, he has all the aim altering mechanics he has to go through, and it just seems like a fun idea. even so, i wouldn't even mind a game just based on sniping. not neccesarily with all the mechanics of wind and all, but just a game based on that. you know, like instaed of a game where you can be a sniper, or assault, etc.. it'd be cool to have more games solely focused on snipers. finding a good rooftop, watching, waiting, that's why Hitman games are fun as well. you can literaly change every level, just by making it a sniper game. maybe i'm just asking for too much, or something that a very small percenatage is interested in. but it's just something i like in games.

Sniping is actually no fun at all at least not outside of games. If you were to play a sniping game you first have to decide what school of sniping you are to follow. There are 2 different philosophies when it comes to military sniping. Eastern and Western. Western snipers US armed forced as an example use the one shot one kill concept. Which is why bolt action sniper rifles are the weapon of choice for their inherent accuracy. Eastern snipers are used more as a support to a unit. Eastern snipers are used basically to keep the enemy pinned down so that the squad can get into position. That is why Eastern snipers are armed typically with semi-automatic rifles Dragunov/ Ndm86/RomakIII. This is a general rule and Im not saying that the concepts arent interchangeable but more so of whats typical.

and thats propably a reason why their not making a new sniper only game

because it doesnt appeal to most of the crowd

only a small percentage

sniper elite was wild, i loved playing co-op with my buddy, we had one time where we got the bullet cam tracking my shot but as soon as mine enterd the enemy snipers left eye u could see my buddys shot enter the right eye, it was the coolest thing ever, i loved that game. should bought it but i didnt and now im regretting it, its hard 2 find. they should sequel it but i doubt they will, not alot of people liked the methodical pace u took in that game, i found that part fun and realistic, fighting enemy snipers was awsome 2.
#27 Posted by the_mighty_boos (198 posts) -
what about the Hitman games? I know its not focused on just sniping, but if you wanted to I bet you could do each mission being a sneaky, undetectable sniper. I remember one mission where you had to wait for the 2 targets to hug and shoot them both with one bullet. very enjoyable
#28 Posted by sports23player (127 posts) -
farcry instincts predator has a lot of sniping
#29 Posted by GEARSofWAR360 (1405 posts) -
i think cod4 is gonna have some great sniper battles if u can find a friend that likes to do player vs player sniping i think itll be crazy intense
#30 Posted by camian69 (583 posts) -
Sniper Elite is a great game. Yes it is on the backwards compatibility list, but it freezes at the menu. At least it did last time I checked. It is listed in the 'known issues'on xbox.com for games that are listed b/c but have problems. I really wish they would fix it with a patch. :?
#31 Posted by xlmfx (30 posts) -

I too would love a game based mainly on sniping, i always go a sniper in the shooting games i've played, like foley in the conflict series...

there just isn;t enough sniping games, or at least not many good looking sniper games!



I would love a good sniper game, lots of cover, buildings, lots of things to shoot from a distance, and a sniper rifle with an adjustable scope, so you can actually zoom in.. which i've noticed alot of the current shooting games, don't have on there snipers...

give the xbox 360 gaming community a sniping game!!! a good one!!!

#32 Posted by Calibrez (1 posts) -
AO2 has some sniping and some pretty cool guns like for example the Dragunov (SVD) , M134 ,and the M107 which is the default sniper rifle. Hitman:Blood Money also has sniping . But you could definetly get Sniper Elite on ebay like a different guy/girl said...
#33 Posted by Avenger1324 (16344 posts) -
If you are looking for a sniping game on 360 then you are really limited. I've played Sniper Elite on PC and that was a lot of fun, and could be really challenging when you turned up the realism settings. Apart from that though just about every other game I've tried on consoles puts the bullet exactly where the centre of the crosshair is. Hitman is good if you want to be stealthy and use a sniper rifle, but it is just a case of put the crosshair on the targets head and he's dead. If you have a decent PC to play games on then you can give STALKER (Shadow of Chernobyl or Clear Sky) a go. They both have more realistic bullet physics, and while it hasn't gone to the extreme of Sniper Elite, it does have more challenge than many FPS games.

Halo 3, Hardcore Gametype- Team Snipers
#35 Posted by kismygras (31 posts) -
uhhh, battlefield: bad company has some awesome sniping, but only in multiplayer. unlike other fps games, this one actually gives sniper rifles the attention they deserve. P.S. no matter what everyone says, halo 3 really isn't that fantastic when it comes to sniping. there are only 2 different types of snipers and they really aren't that different. plus the bullets travel instantaneously, no travel time whatsoever. there are many other reasons, but i'm much to lazy to state them all.

#37 Posted by JasonDarksavior (9323 posts) -

There arn't much games that are based specifically for sniping like sniper elite but as someone else said, Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2 have a lot of optional sniping.

#39 Posted by bookenpootjes (1 posts) -
You could always try Americas Army 1,2,3 for pc and xbox and AA: True soldiers for xbox 360. And the battlefield games like 1943 and 2 are pretty good games. I love sniper games too, but that is the closest i get : /
