i completed the first one it was good, looking 4ward to this i hope they fixed the many glitches in this one
Why not put around Sarajevo the real Chetniks whit Chetnik caps and cockades on it and Karadzic paratrupes to be as realistic as 1993 years,and to make it even more interesting!
I'm not sure of the history of that war but what is Americas part in it? Wouldn't it make more sense to have the Russians intervening. Like I said, I don't know the history.
Tells us nothing about the gameplay or A:I yet so i...like the sniper...will hold my breath for now :)
As someone who has lived through the horrors of the Siege of Sarajevo, and experienced the effects of Serb snipers firsthand, I can't say that I'm comfortable with the game being set in Sarajevo. It is just too soon. People are still burying the victims of the Bosnian War. That aside, cyrillic script in Sarajevo and Bosnia and Herzegovina is rare, so it is inaccurate to see posters and graffiti written in cyrillic, especially during the war (cyrillic script is associated with Serbia, enemy country at the time of the game, one not liked by most Bosnians even today).
I'm guessing a video game cant be "real" when it comes to sniping..
Because no one wants to shimmy from blind to blind for 3-4 days on your xbox pissing on yourself and shitting your pants and balancing noise and dehydration of your shooter..
just to take out one to three targets.....
Stop asking so much of a game when it's "impossible" to duplicate.
I am really hoping for a sniper game that has realistic bullet physics, such as the factoring in the force of gravity in bullet drop! And if it's a pure sniping game, it really should include things like holding the breath to improve accuracy or having a spotter!
Too many sniping games are only about clicking the enemies' head!
Not sniper talk.....
In training they teach to squeeze the trigger never pull!
Snipers in gaming are never like real living ones, this are shallow, low life's who blow sh*t up.....
At sniper school they teach you to push your emotions down but never to be a loose cannon or to take video game shots at fuel tanks.
hopefully, this game like the other will show better thinking at its next trailer or at the game itself...
This is the second trailer I saw where they showed Bosnia. First in Medal of Honor war fighter where they showed a red dot on bosnia and other places. Now here when you can be in Bosnia! Sarajevo, Bosna where I was born!
brilliant .. I like the graphics and the atmosphere .. definitely eager to hear more about the game .. the first one sucked !
wasn't it a changed quote from black ops 2 and mw3 ?
It is true that Russians had more active involvement than the US. If you play the game 'T-72 Balkans On Fire' - also known as 'Iron Warriors: T-72 Tank Command on the Steam version - you play as the Russians in the same setting. I reckon it's a rather fun game, even though I was fighting against my own 'side'. Metacritic wasn't lenient, but I would still recommend it :)
@BosnianGenocide Nice... Another smart guy who shows the world how "demonic" Serbian people is. Like media didn't do it's work in '90s. And yeah, like Bosnians are saints.
@BosnianGenocide It was an open war, between 3 countries where all three where shooting each other, and it was all based on media warfare. It has been twenty years since all that hell broke loose. Now it is peace and every normal person is thinking about peace, especially Serbs because every nation is tearing it apart.
@dark_sith_ soo yr ok with all of the exploit games and movies set obscurely in the "middle east" that pretty much glorify the violence that is still currently happening in Iraq and Afghanistan? I have and still am burying both my brothers and friends I've made while over there. It's just a game. If you were really there and take offense, don't play it and look down on others who celebrate it in your own way. Ppl can't understand something they can't directly relate to no matter what you tell them. entertainment venues will always profit off the reality of human atrocity, otherwise we wouldn't half of the first persons that have been made today. rome glorified battle in the colosseum, we do it in digital media venues. its all relative.
@dark_sith_ Don't care. It's a game, they make movies about the same war and no one complains, those who are sensitive, does not need to play it.
@dark_sith_ well i am bosnian and i have no problem with this game because you are not killing civilians its just another war game, if in game you are killing civilians that is another story
Some people forget that it is not a military training sim but a video game that needs to entertain at first. I hope that it will this time as the developer didn't have to be that tight on the budget as it was making the previous one.
@SEEDman_X Holding the breath only steady your sights in account of it stops the breathing movement of your body, none of this physics can be compared to real life although the former games mechanics were very impressive for a game as well as the game sniper elite v2, probably more realistic shooting mechanics since the weapons were older.
A true sniper looks for sure kills, not for a double kill head shot and crap games like call of duty or battlefield has thought as, but i wont say there weren't scenarios that "trick shots" were taken.
people i work with will never say " i blow sh*t up" (everyone but the bomb squad). Developers see only action movie jargon today, drop a few phonetic alphabet terms and make them all badarses.....
hard for someone like me who both enjoy gaming and his military carrier to co exist....
@DITHRICH Its a video game...its not gonna be realistic especially when it comes to military things
Once more City Interactivy showed their huge lack of knowledge about what is to be a real sniper, and this is a sign that this game will fail again like the first one! I wish not, because I would love a sniper exclusive game, but I don't see that coming at all! This is all COD and BF3's fault, they set this stupid base line and now everyone wants to follow that! Not that I don't like COD or BF3, but it's time to have something like ARMA or even better, it would be awesome to merge the destruction of BF games with the cinematic of COD games in a game that is more realistic like ARMA. There is even a mod where you need to dial your clicks on the scope to compensate wind and gravity! Long range shooting isn't 300 yds, it's more like 1500 yds or more!
@ibisevic99 None is meant to harm your people or classify them as bad...
Its like Call of duty and the mission "no Russian" and the shoot out of a major airport in Russia. i do not believe they expressed any feelings they have towards Russians. All is made for the idea to "spice things up"
and change the main places things actually happen at like the middle east or Asia.
i say be happy your birth place was mentioned!
@ibisevic99 they have probably intended to destroy your homeland .. but who cares .. they just play .. I suffered the same !
@Ivanxoe Technically, it was 3 'nationalities' shooting each other, with occasional changes in alliances. Although, you're right about everything else in your comment. I don't know what BosnianGenocide said, but I imagine it was another idiotic thing to stir more hatred.
@ztg360 I know that.
all i expected is a wee bit more realism in character development, liked the former sniper ghost warrior game but to me its the little things that counts, blowing crap up is shallow and dim, expected a bit more professionalism.
@dalua360 First of all i said noting about the game being a fail, unrealistic sniper experience sure but not a fail.
and by the way, snipers use the metric system, even Americans, me myself took part in many military operations involving recon, package security and clearing hostiles, 300 yds thats like 250-270m? its not cqb it is a range for a marksman with a scoped rifle or a grenade launcher.
its not long range but its mid range since assault rifles become useless with out optics or marksmanship abilities from 200m, snipers come to the picture from a long range and or usually they go first, clean the area and then provide support for the on going team and even join them.
marksman provide cover, snipers are the front line in urban areas or a semi "jungle" area.
the only thing i wish for Ci's games that they will dig deep although i enjoy there games, i get disappointed from there lack of study, mainly graphics showing engine, and no depth.
Hopefully i am wrong, i wish i was wrong a lot....
@DITHRICH Oh I know, I was just happy they picked it
@DITHRICH His birthplace was mentioned because it was a warzone about little more than ten years ago. There is nothing happy about that.
@dalua360 well i thought yanks like hearing something about proper military work? nahh i am kidding, i enjoy seeing your work.
and your absolutely positively right, games do need some long range shooting, but there comes the problem in making a game fun and realistic, they usually don't go together.
And again, I must say that I agreed with you from the first time, so, your need to show up your military knowledge is totally unnecessary here, there was no reason for that type of explanation in our discussion, because I didn't say anything against your first statement or anything wrong, I just wanted a game with long range capabilities, and you started to teach me tactical approaches of 300m snipers?? Long range shooting means more than 1000m and I quote you "in my line of work". I don't see coherence in this discussion, which was about having a good realistic military game focused on the sniper role. I just don't understand why you started this whole talking about your skills. I didn't even say what I was or what I do now and you suddenly assumed that I had to be taught? I suggest to you Mr British Special Forces to save your rich military knowledge to military forums, or ask people if they want to learn something new from your vast experience before starting this extense recruiting class.
@dalua360 I am sorry mr former marine sir(semper fi), alloow me to introduce my self,
former IDF warrior for the 7th armor division recon and surveillance, currently joined the British special forces, i never said anything about the marines.
In my line of work i do not babysit ground forces, i give intel of the area, as well as you blokes do.
and back at the day of ww2 many "snipers" didn't even had any scopes......a well know sniper known as "the white death" used his iron sight for distances.
all i was saying is that even with Americans we used the metric system.
If you think i offended you by my comment Mr jar head, i am sorry since i didn't mean to.
call of duty is an example for "cqb sniping",
at least battlefield tries a wee bit.
and in my line of work i have cleared many sectors with the help of my team. we usually send a scout in, the scout is armed lightly with a rifle, a pistol, coms and etc.
We only "eliminate" HVT's on our own and lets say this is risky line of work.
me myself not long ago gat shot in the leg what leaves me here.
Hey buddy you're talking with a former marine here, everyone here knows that, so I just don't understand what is wrong about my opinon? I used the yds system to make easier to understand to US people. I can make shots at 250m to 300m without scope if you want, how do you think the past wars were fought? With trijicon scopes? lol. But that's not important, I was agreeing with you, I just gave my opinion, there's no need to get all worked out about my comment!!! By the way, Marine recon or sniper don't clean the area like your saying, it's more of a 0311 job, we overwatch and pass intel to our OC giving support if needed after the situation deteriorates. If you're talking about ARMY, then it's a different thing. Like I said, it's just my opinion about a good game, because if you like 300m shots, you don't need a new game, there is plenty of them at your disposal already.
@ibisevic99 then i am happy for you.
@sgtGiggsy I didn't know that.
i have been in many areas of war such as Africa and the middle east, scary places with dark people(i do not mean the skin tone) and people only suffered there, had nightmares for weeks. really sorry but if its any consultations the people i associate with are going to war zones and search, rescue and most of the time clear the area from hostiles.
i hope you haven't seen any of the horrors of a war zone,
the less you know the better you're off!
