to all the people who are talking rubbish
about the game,would you like to live in country were
you have no rights.its just a game
I couldnt agreemoe with @DAMSOG i get so sick and tired of people suportin the war machine this country has become. its sickening. and he hit the nail on the head. blind patriotism is absolutely sickening to me. if people would use some critical thinking they would be able to see through the bullshit but they refuse and just take what they hear on CNN or FOX or MSNBC as gospel. it pisses me off... honestly there are game that I DONT BUY because they push this fucking bullshit. little kids grow up playing these games and get brainwashed into believing the U.S. is "spreading democracy" and all that shit. first off, this country was supposed to be a consitutional republic... and our way of spreading democracy is to go in and unstabilize other govts? @_huh honestly you are part of the problem...you need to open up your eyes just a bit further bro
this game look great, but game play will fail. The reason is that the game is on a path, they should of make it open world and let you come into the mission how ever u want. Instead of traveling down a designated path. ... USMC Scout Sniper Camp Pendelton, CA
Wow, I sincerely hope this isn't the final build because it kinda looks terrible, the colours are dull, the character models are poor and the animations worse still. Can we have a game please that doesn't have Americans saving the world? It's starting to smell a lot like propaganda....
the player ummm, can ummm, weapon ummmm, or a ummmm, ummmm, here i am ummmmm, stealthy ummmmm, A.i can ummmm, go around ummmmmm
missions doesnt look that bad but NPC's could do some more work. modeling and animations looks really outdated.
also lightining and shadows could do some more work.
I uderstand game doesnt have budget of Crysis game but still it has potential to be equally good.
At 3:40 the guy is crouched and gets shot in the face and then he stand up and jump lol, that was awkward
i doubt half the people commenting here have actually played the game.. the first game had a crappy multiplayer but the single player was good fun and i really enjoyed it. With CryEngine3 the looks have greatly improved. If they have made the multiplayer worth it than i'll be a happy camper. (pun intended)
Everything I've seen here has been better done in Call of Duty and FayCry 3. FayCry3 is the only first-person shooter game that has brought something completely new to gameplay and not just copying Call of Duty Line. Why can't sniper also try a different approach and do something completely unique to it?
This game looks like a collection of those obligatory sniping and sneaking missions from all the modern day shooters
"you take one, I take the other"
"quick! before they find the body!"
"this one's mine"
"take him out quickly!"
How many times have we seen this sh*t?
I don't know "Um" if "Um" this is the kind of "Um" game for "Um" me. This guy killed it with the sheer number of fillers he used in each sentence.
I hope all the enemies don't look the same. Also hope multiplayer will be better. Definitely picking this one up though, I did have some fun with the last one.
How is that propoaganda? If it sells well, then there's a perfectly valid financial reason, even if you are unfortunately so shallow to not understand.
In addition, showing Americans doing things to help the little guy in oppressive nations...that's actually what happens in real life. Sorry if you don't like it, but it's the truth.
@TERMINATOR-SSD Ummmmm I want umm something changes on this sniping game ummmm Umm, wait umm Idk ummm hmm Ummmm
@TERMINATOR-SSD Ahahaha lol
@pozium what you mean is they spend more money developing the game. farcry 3 havent done anything new at all. you must be young player or you only play 9.0+ games.
@raweewat Soooooooooo true!
@blastmaster2k2 You sir are exactly why the rest of the world is starting to hate America, oh and fuck you too wanker!
i agree with you damsog big seebg is talking
bollocks he need to read a little more.may be lives a
country were he as been brain washed
@_huh Congratulations on picking on one point of my criticism and then topping it off with a personal insult. So I will reply as such, the world doesn't revolve around America (fact) and in some countries America is hated (fact) so why do we have to swallow America's interpretation of how they are saving the world yet again? Dare I mention Vietnam? or the recent Iraq war? helping the little guy in oppressed nations? is that your take on it? You sir are an idiot (fact), but blinding patriotism is what America's famous for isn't it?
@pozium That was actually probably Sniper Elite. Whatever.
But I think he is also reacting to the same type of anti-US attitude that I explained earlier. All this type of conversation leads to is the circular, "no, f*ck you", "no...f*ck you" back-and-forth which results in non-US citizens thinking US citizens are assholes, while it leads US citizens to think all non-US citizens (or uneducated US citizens) are anti-US stooges (ike the zico guy above).
It's not productive for anything other than generating spite. Look, if the US just stopped stepping into conflcts that are affecting innocents across the world, we'd be branded as un-caring and callous. So, we send our own moms/dads/son/daughters to get killed in these areas, to help the innocents. And since we do, we are looked-at as invaders/conquerors/evil. So, we (the citizens of the US) choose to do what we think is right. Of course there are conflict that result because of a threat against our interest, but don't f*ck with us and we won't f*ck with you.
In WW2, the US chose to stay out of the war,until we were attacked by Japan. I think it's safe to say we learned a lesson from that and won't let that happen again.
Your example of the Far Cry kids is exactly the type of personification of US citizens that frustrates me the most. As a US citizen, I understand that thse spoiled brats do not represent us as a people, but that many people across the world, who are not US citizens, will not have much exposure to US culture outside of this type of depiction, so they think that's how we all are. So, when I read comments about "US arrogance" or inferences to US soldiers as mindless killers, it is especially frustrating, and I get insulted. Not so much insulting because someone would say those things, but because the person does not have a depth to their thinking beyond what they see in video games, and to thereby imply such nonsense as reality.
The citizens in the US are infinitely thankful for the friendships we have, especially with those most close to us, like Australia. As a nation looked-to for solutions when SHTF, there is a higher likelyhood for us to be required to make decisions that will be disliked by some but benefit many. Some decisions will be bad entirely, like the entire presidency of Woodrow Wilson, for example. The best we can do is not let them happen again.
It would be unfair of me to deny the fact that so much of modern entertainment has a pro-US bias. It would also be unfair of me to say that the same entertainment that displays this bias is actually portraying how the world actually works, as if every good thing is only done by the US and without the partnership of other nations, like AUS. In the same respect, I understand that it does not represent reality, even when it bashes the US, like AC3 or Far Cry 3. I believe US citizens are as much like the Far Cry 3 brats as I do that all Australian citizens dress like Crocodile Dundee and walk around oblivious to reality in big cities like he does.
I can completely understand how frustrating it can be for a citizen from outside the US to constantly see the US as the heroes in games, but I bet neither of us can imagine the frustration for Russian citizens to see themselves to alway be portrayed as devious. I think we are seeing the market begin to force itself to abandon the constant dudebro US shooters, because the idea has been done over so many times that people, even in the US, are tired of that story. Look at the top games of the last couple years and you'll find that there are actually very few that fall into that category. We just know about the US shooters the most because they are marketed the most, but not the best games by a long shot. The games that are truly becoming long term successes are the Elder Scrolls, Mass Effect's, Dark Souls, Guild Wars, Civilization, Borderlands.
@_huh Well, first I will say thankyou for the reply without the insults and secondly, thankyou for the well constructed, informative argument. I can see the points you are trying to raise but my view is clouded by the fact that I don't live in America and my only real picture of American society/culture is that of which is portrayed on television and VIDEO GAMES. Anyone who has played one of the AAA titles in the last year will testify to the "chest thumping, patriotism dripping" sentiment that seems to be creeping into games these days. Take Far Cry 3 as example, the American youth that is portrayed as rich/spoiled/arrogant does nothing to endear us as a player to save these horrible people, in fact just the opposite. This may be an extreme but my real problem is that war games/FPS seem to be attracting more than their fare share of USA branded titles. Every re-writing of history we choke on in modern military shooters is usually off the backs of American Marines, US Navy Seals etc. with little or no mention of any allied military contribution. I'm not sure if this is intentional of the developers themselves, catering to what may be their biggest market, or something more sinister. So maybe you can see where my cynicism is coming from? As I see it games these days cost a lot of money to develop and that money has to come from somewhere, what better way for a little "patriotism" to find it's way into a game, make it subtle so you don't notice it at first, and then in the blink of an eye we find ourselves at the "chest thumping" stage. Problem being is that I believe it's already here.
"America is but one country on this planet so why (I ask again) should all these new "heroes" of the gaming world be American?" --you need to ask game developers/publishers this question, but I think they'll simply tell you that it's because that is what sells the best. I highly doubt it's because of some national-pride chest pounding that you seem to think is going on. They are in the business of making money, not friends. As far as your idea of constant pro-American propoganda in games, have you played AC3? That entire game is pretty much anti-American/British. It skews the historical accuracy of many the US founders and makes them look like either cowards or fools. I enjoyed the game though, and continue to do so. One thing I've learned in the 34 years I've been around, is not to take gaming-world logic seriously because you'll just want to pull your hair out in the end.
"If this world is such a rich tapestry of cultures and people isn't it a little strange that a majority of the gaming heroes these days are restricted to one nationality?" --Fair point, but that's mainly because of game developers/publishers weak abilities to be creative, and fear of failure. Not many have the capability or the creativity to be a Bioware or Bethesda, or have the financial capital to risk everything on something that has a higher risk for smaller sales. My point, it's not about national pride or "propoganda" as you point out. You are giving the gaming industry way too much credit than they deserve to think they are so comfortable in their industry enough to publish a title with national propoganda in mind. If the US govt. ran a game company, then I could see it happening, but public companies don't do that kind of stuff (that I am aware-of).
As an American, the US bashing is getting a little tired, considering that it's usually misguided. I've never been one for "America!! F*ck Yeah bro!!", but I think a growing contingency in the US is starting to get tired of being portrayed as arrogant and heartless. Like any society, there are sh!tbags, and it's unfortunate that they tend to get the most attention in alot of cases, making themselves defacto representatives of the society they belong to. But, the America I know of is mostly made up of selfless people who sincerely care for the prosperity of the rest of the world. That statement is exemplified in the charity work that is present in every nation in the world, and are led by US citizens. Knowing that, and hearing/reading people slam us as the opposite, is frustrating, but we would send our sons and daughters to your country to protect and die for your right to say those things if it were threatened by an enemy.
@_huh So once again you resort to "personal" attacks insinuating that I lack a decent education? Would the only place one could acquire this indoctrination be America by any chance? I don't personally believe that America is inherently evil but I do have a problem playing video games as "yet another" American video game hero who shrugs off a thousand bullets and re-writes the history of the world yet again. This was my original point. America is but one country on this planet so why (I ask again) should all these new "heroes" of the gaming world be American? I am Australian (a proud one) and in my short 40 year life span on this earth I think I have gained a little insight into the political world and it's shortcomings, I would not like to see political motivations jump the barrier into a fantasy leisure activity such as video games. If this world is such a rich tapestry of cultures and people isn't it a little strange that a majority of the gaming heroes these days are restricted to one nationality?
I accomplished my objective, displaying your blind hatred for the US. The world doesn't revolve around America, if you think we think that, then your point of view is hopelessly prejudiced already. America is the greatest source of philantropy that the world has ever known. Too bad your skewed view is incapable of paying any attention to that. Every country is hated somewhere. You want to use Vietnam and Iraq as your key examples to prove your point? DARE you mentione Vietnam or Iraq? Is that supposed to be your secret weapon? You're right, Saddam Hussein really wasn't that bad of a guy, and Ho Chi Minh was loved by Vietnamese (these folks are proof of that: http://articles.latimes.com/1999/jan/20/local/me-65390)
I guess on our role in saving France in WW2, the ethnic cleansing in Yugoslavia that the US stopped in the early 90's, and countless efforts by civilian US organizations to help end malaria and starvation in Africa is unimportant to you. You don't have to "swallow" any interpretation you refer-to as America "saving the world again". We know alot of people don't like us, kinda like the kid in class who hates the kid who gets good grades. Unlike wherever you are from, we have freedom of choice here in the US, and we don't have to "swallow" or purchase anything we don't want to. So, before you attempt to push your skewed hopeless view of how evil you think America really is, based off of your conspiracy theory youtube videos and wannabe socialist college professors, you should try getting yourself a balanced education and you might find yourself a little more enlightened than how you portray yourself as.
It's Ok, it''s OK, thake a deep breath. We aren't really as bad as you have been told. We Americans don't have devil horns or our noses up in the air wherever we go. In reality, most of us wear hard hats because we are hard workers, and we have our arms open to our brothers and sisters of any nation.
