We talk about the pros and cons of the game in the review and video we prepared for Sniper Elite 5, which was developed by Rebellion and further developed the general dynamics of the series. What kind of dynamics does this new ring of the series come to mind when it comes to sniper game?

Sniper Elite 5 review PC

First of all, Sniper Elite 5 has been a production that I have enjoyed playing since the moment it came out. It has shortcomings and points to be criticized, but we have to admit that it is one of the best examples of the genre. I spent a whole Sunday with my family playing Sniper Elite 5 almost nonstop. Moreover, all day long, sentences such as “I shot him in the head, the intestines went, aha his eye came out, his collarbone was shattered” came up.

 

In fact, the most striking factor that attracted me to the game is breaking and smashing the helmets and skulls of enemy soldiers as if they were shelled walnuts. Isn’t that the most distinctive feature of the Sniper Elite series anyway? 

You are a soldier, where did the resistance come from?

Sniper Elite 5 review

This time our story takes place in France. With our dear friend Karl Fairburne, who has not left us alone since the second game of the series, we continue to overturn all the secret Nazi plans and make all the soldiers with or without rank feel like popcorn. In fact, our story suddenly evolves to a completely different place. We approach the coast with the submarine and start our mission, and suddenly we become a soldier of the resistance army. Believe me, you will be amazed when you see where the subject came from so quickly. 

In the face of this situation, we are having some problems with the British army, of which we are a member. Somehow, we accept this situation very quickly and act immediately with resistance. In our missions, which we start by piercing the Atlantic wall, we anger the German Nazi general Möller a little and draw his attention, and thus our story begins.

The story is a bit of a mess, but X-Ray is a legend, man

Ok, let’s not get too carried away, shall we?? At the beginning of the game, that is, in 1944, we are assigned to France and we are committed to finding out what a secret project Project Kraken is and then destroying it. But as I said before, our story suddenly changes direction and takes on a different shape. In the Sniper Elite series, the subject was never the main issue anyway, so the developer team did not surprise us in the last game, there is no narrative and content that drags us on the subject.

The basic gameplay mechanics are not different from the other games in the series, even if we can say exactly the same, only the story is different. As a third-person sniper, we focus on missions, try different ways to contact targets, send our enemies to their last journey with pleasure thanks to the killing mechanics, complete our mission, get on a vehicle and escape from there to complete our mission.

It’s your turn for x-rays, please

What makes the Sniper Elite series different from other games and makes it so popular is the X-Ray (death camera) system. In other words, the fact that we can take an X-ray of the enemy’s brain has always aroused our curiosity, and we hunted enemies with our hands on the alert, our eyes on the sights, and we watched their death patterns with pleasure. When you say it like that, you feel like a sadist.

The death camera, X-Ray, was only available with a sniper rifle in other games of the series, but in the last game, we can now see this screen with melee weapons. In other words, if our hit quality is good, X-Ray comes into play and we are happy again. Look, we’re like sadists again, okay??

Hunting while hunting is another feature added to the game.

Let’s come to the Invasion mode, which is the most different feature offered to us in the new game. This mod gives a very different feeling to the player. I’m coming to full throttle when I say I’m going to open a ventilation hole in the enemy’s head, taak! an inscription appears on the top left saying “the invasion is starting”, so an opponent like you is coming, hide. The enemy is not standing still, and a rival sniper has come upon us, and you switch directly from the hunter position to the hunted position.

Invasion mode is at our discretion, of course, so we can turn it on and off if we want. In Invasion mode, this time continues until either the opponent or us dies. In fact, we can think of it as a feature that adds excitement to the game. Because the opponents are as tough as we are, it gives us almost 5 times the adrenaline of artificial intelligence. If you have watched the movie “Enemy at the Gate” this is exactly what I want to tell ?? but if you haven’t watched it, I’m waiting here, you watch it right away and come, we’ll continue the article later.

We can customize the weapons as we want.

Sniper Elite 5 offers us the opportunity to manipulate, modify and customize like a gunsmith. As in most games, we do not have the opportunity to access every part instantly, there are work tables or benches in the game, we can buy parts there and we can attach and change them as an add-on to our weapon. 

There is only one thing I don’t like about weapons, sometimes you get special weapons from the ground or from special areas for missions, but you can use them in a single magazine, so they are never added to your inventory. Brother, I find the Kar98 is very beautiful, it has a silencer. Very nice weapons are coming, but we can only use them in disposable mode.

Hitman are you big or me?

Recently, every game is inspired by each other in some way, it is very likely that we will see a similar feature in another game. In Sniper Elite 5, some details make the game look like Hitman made in China. Features such as hiding the enemies we kill in chests, knocking out the enemy with melee, picking up crowbars or cutting tools from the ground, seeing the location of the enemies from behind the wall with focus, are a bit too inspired in the final game.

I told you there’s a bit of a Hitman breeze. While fighting with the enemies, we suddenly find notes at certain points, and these notes can give us side missions. Like killing an enemy, blowing up doors, opening safes. Although these fine details have added a different perspective to the game, they do not add much excitement to the subject.

Artificial intelligence has a B12 deficiency

Although Sniper Elite 5 is a game where you constantly struggle with enemies, there are serious problems with artificial intelligence. Enemies can even get into the squeak of doors, and sometimes they pass over the dead soldiers on the ground and say, “Aga, what happened to this man?” they don’t say. I killed 6 soldiers on the bridge, they called me for 4-5 minutes, then they forgot about me and started chatting. If they were not ashamed, they would go to coffee, I prevented them, I killed them all ?? have some respect for the dead, the blood of the men did not dry out, you forgot the men, you started chatting right away, it’s a shame.

Actually, there is a feature in the game that I want and really expect. So what is this feature? Camouflage or changing clothes. How would it be if we suddenly mingled as a German officer while the enemies were looking for us in every corner? Think about it, I think it would be legendary. Well, if you’re reading Rebellion, add this article to the sixth game, this feature will attract a lot of attention. You said it was Merlin’s Cauldron.

Is there no music added or did I turn the volume down too much?

Sniper Elite 5 review

There are some fundamentals that draw a player into the game. These are story, gameplay, weapons, realism, music, sounds, etc. But we can say that Sniper Elite 5 has failed in music and sound for some reason. Since there is no music in the style of mehter (the mehter anthem playing in the background) during the action moments, the game officially says to us at some points, “I made the game, now buy your own gas”. 

Because for a while, I really thought, “Have I turned off the music?” Since we can’t feel the action-packed moments too much at the end of the game, what remains in our minds is limited. The newly added features to the game impress us a little more than the other games in the series, weapon customization, wide map, x-ray system, realistic sniper feel, invasion mode are nice additions. But the mechanics somehow give us the impression that the production is a sequel. In other words, it’s like we are completing the things that were left unfinished in the fourth game in the new game. 

The game is on sale instantly on Steam at a price of 549 TL,It has not been added to the Epic Game Store yet.But if you have an Xbox Game Pass subscription, you can have the game at no extra cost and have your own experiences.
