Sniper Elite III Review - The Digital Fix

Everyone knows that the Sniper Elite series is a guilty pleasure. Any game where time slows to a crawl, the camera following a bullet’s trajectory through a Nazi’s testicle, can’t be taken seriously. It turns out this morbid, immensely gratifying gimmick is enough to carry a franchise, moving away from the European theatre of war towards the sands of the African campaign (we’ll forget the turgid Nazi Zombie expansion like some bad dream). So the staccato ring of a sniper’s shot sounds once more, now on current-gen consoles as well as the lumbering beasts that preceded them, expanding on Sniper Elite V2’s tantalising prospect of pointing guns at people very far away and pulling the trigger. (PC, PS3, PS4, Sniper Elite 3, Xbox 360, Xbox One) 6/10
