This game can't decide what it wants to be - stealth sniper or straight-out FPS. This results in absurd situations. For example, in stealth levels, enemies will raise the alarm the moment they see you, but won't as long as they don't - EVEN IF you just shot the guy standing right next to them. For another example, the in-game radar doesn't show enemies until you look at them - a great logical idea. However, enemies show on your radar if you cross sufficiently close to them, even if you never directly looked at them. At other times, the radar won't register a enemy if you are looking at him through your scope - extremely weird for a game titled Sniper.
There are 3 stances - standing, crouching and crawling. Ideally, you should be forced to choose between running from cover to cover or slowly crawling in the hopes of being undetected. In the game though, you just have to crawl always.
Worst of all are the controls. Totally unresponsive and the mouse sensitivity is way too high.
And I would expect a stealth game to have a separate key for lying prone. Nope - you have to long-press the crouch key.
Even CoD has separate keys for these stances.
