I bought it on a whim and quite enjoyed it. I really wish Rebellion could get a slightly bigger budget, though. The AI was doodoo.

I think the AI was my only complaint. Looking forward to more Sniper Elite.

This only sold because it has the word, 'sniper', in the title.

Still, fair play to them.

I think it sold because the game had a fun demo. Many people including myself bought it despite the reviews.

I know I sure bought it due to the demo! even went and preordered and got a bullet key chain.

Actually, the game is averaging in the 7's, which isnt really a bad score...

Was surprised to hear that this game is at the top of the UK charts 2 weeks in a row. Good for them

I played the hell out of the demo, on the Raptr site it said I hit 10 hours on the demo. Bought it right away despite the reviews and I've quite enjoyed it so far. Good to see 505 coming up on top for once.
