Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a remastered version of Sniper Elite V2, a game produced on the borderline between shooting and stealth. The title was developed by the authors of the original, i.e. Rebellion studio.
The action of Sniper Elite V2 Remastered takes place in the last days of the Second World War, namely in 1945 occupied by the Red Army in Berlin. We play the role of the American sniper Karl Fairburne, who finds himself in the ruined capital of the Third Reich, to stop the Soviet troops from laying their hands on V2 rockets. In order to do so, the protagonist must intercept scientists willing to cooperate with the Americans and liquidate those who broke with the Soviets.
In Sniper Elite V2 Remastered the action was shown from the third person perspective (TPP). A number of different missions await completion. The key to success is to avoid unnecessary confrontation with enemies, find a convenient position to shoot, and in case of detection - to salute with an escape and wait for an alarm or to eliminate the threat. It is complicated by the fact that adversaries can communicate with each other or hide from the hero.
Although there is an extensive arsenal of firearms (including a pistol with a silencer), the first violin is played by a sniper rifle. In order to make the best use of his potential, we must not only show patience, but also knowledge of the laws of ballistics; therefore, when aiming, we must take into account gravity and wind speed and control the pulse. At lower difficulty levels, a red dot shows where the projectile will hit. The "X-Ray Kill Cam" deserves a separate mention - when a shot is fired, the camera follows the ball, showing the damage it hurls in the bodies of enemies (such as torn organs or broken bones).
In addition to the single player fiction campaign, Sniper Elite V2 Remastered has a competitive multiplayer mode where up to sixteen players can compete against each other, as well as a cooperation module waiting to be tested.
Sniper Elite V2 Remastered stands out from the original thanks to the improved graphic design; moreover, the authors provide us with a photographic mode. The game is enriched with the content of all additions released after the original release; besides, the game features playable characters from the side series Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army.
