Sniper Elite V2
Do I need to have played V1?
In order to understand the story here? Or could I just pickup and play V2 and V3 without previous experience / knowledge?
Sniper Elite v2 is a typical Spunkgargleweewee. It's levels are small and it's story non-existent. A large part of this game is taken up by shooting at 2nd deaf-blind battalion of the German Army. Other than that you plant bombs.
That's it. It's ballistics and "stealth" are kinda nice, but don't help the game too much.
I purchased this game for around 4€. It's low price at the moment of purchase is the only reason this game gets a positive review.
Excellent game, not played 1 or 3 yet, so can't compare. If you're used to fast paced games like Battlefield or COD, and like to snipe on them, this is a lot different. Every bullet counts.
I play BF3/4 and even then we reload all the time when you feel like it, ammo all over the place. Not in this game there isn't. There were times I had one bullet left in the gun, but still never reloaded, just in case.
I could have gone for the extra achievments like the bottles, but wasting my ammo shooting a bit of glass was a no brainer. Maybe on the 2nd playthrough.
Those slow motion headshot, or even getting a couple in the old groin, was great to see.
It also teaches you to not go running around like a madman. Many times, you're couting the rooftops, trying to see if its safe or not.
I did enjoy it, recommend this to others. I also created a small game review here, only 5mins long:
So while the sale is on I bought the trilogy, but is the DLC worth it for V2? Never played the game before, but if any DLC is multiplayer then I'm probably not interested (unless you can play it solo with/against bots).
