Offering realistic bullet ballistics and windage, Sniper Elite V2 will satisfy any craving you might have to be play in a World War II environment as a bad ass extreme sniper.
I played through on the difficulty setting of "Sniper Elite". The description was accurate, that the ballistics are realistic and the enemies are tough. You will die a fair amount. Sometimes it will be a "saw that coming" death, yet other times(at this difficulty) it will be a solid "oops I wandered into a 3 enemy sniper controlled insta-death-killzone". The latter will drive you nuts for one reason alone. Not because you dies, but because there is a checkpoint system, not a save when I want system. I have said it before and I'll say it again. Let me save when I want, or at the very least balance your checkpoints out. I loathe playing through a difficult part(8+ minutes) over and over due to dying five feet from a check point because the level designer failed to understand the flow of the game. The checkpoint system if my only complaint.
The game is a fairly standard 10-15 hour run, depending on your play style. There is a multiplayer and cooperative mode, which I have not tried yet. I would like to however.
If you are craving a sniper-centric shooter, this is a great choice. A very very bad choice would be Sniper Ghost Warrior. I would recommend picking up Sniper Elite V2 when it hits ~$30. I jumped on it for $37 as this is one of my favorite genres.
