Hello friends,

In this thread we discuss what is the best sniper elite game.

imo its Original follow by sniper elite 4. The original is best in series, 2 is ok, 3 was mediocre and 4 is good. initially i didnot liked 4 at first due to having see through walls vision but now i replayed it and started appreciated it more.

imo its a fairly good series. not amazing or anything but really like what it offer.

so whats the best one? lets discuss and vote.

V2 was great on 360 but 3 is my favourite played again recently on PS4 and still had a lot of fun.

Going with Sniper Elite 4: a great setting combined with the best gameplay in the series.

The parkour and being able to use silenced ammunition for sniper rifles really are big improvements.

Played through it in solo as well as coop in its entirety.

Kinda sad that even on custom i can not turn off see through walls unless im playing on full authentic mode. and that also disable objectives on map.

You only need binocs to see objectives, you still have to manually tag enemies,... so as long as you don't do that, you won't have see through walls.

It will make the game harder, but more realistic imho.

authentic difficulty is unbalanced as they didnot test thier game on hardest difficulty.

beside even if you dont tag enemies. f you missed the shot, they are automatically tagged.

in some objectives you have to tag enemies mostly officers.

i really hope in next game they remove all tagging stuff. as game is design for tagging in mind.

The Zombie Army games I think it started as DLC to second Sniper Elite game with first two parts but got a third part and stand alone trilogy release and I think they're making or made a 4th one.

I've tried multiple times to get into this series but it just doesn't do it for me. think i've tried 2, 3 and 4 at this point.

should be right up my alley, I like stealth, sniping and WW2 games.

just something lifeless about it

I hate all of these games equally.

The controls are awful. The gameplay is all over the place.

I used to hate see through walls/tagging enemies etc but recently I think it makes sense now. Games weren't that detailed back in the day and you can easily spot enemies against background but now with so much better graphics and graphical 'noise' in the background it's become increasingly difficult to separate enemies or may be I'm just getting older and bad at games.

I'm gonna say 4, but after I finished it on Authentic difficulty they released an update with Authentic + difficulty, but never went back to it as it's a run & done game.

I voted Sniper Elite 3 only because it was my first ever playing SNIPER (no pun intended to the TC) series so I'm going with that. Best play on PC for a very good reason ;)

Zombie Trilogy. Shame the next one is whores itself to Epic Store, was looking forward to it. Probably just better holding off anyway as they will spam DLC relentlessly.

they have not announced next one yet. only confirmed it.

as im expecting next one same. decent sniping game with bad AI. all i want is to remove tagging or make it optional and set in berlin once again.

The next Zombie game has been announced with footage, coming to Epic Store sadly. Don't care what the game is how good it is, never supporting that shit..

But Zombie Trilogy is pretty good, lacks the impact of Left4dead and is basically the same shit over and over, but it's simplicity is also it's strength, a great drop-in turn your brain off for an hour that gets right to the point.

The new one looks like it will be bloated with level up mechanics and probably spammed shitless with microtransactions. Wait and see.

As time goes on we just get the incremental increase of greed, greed, greed.
