Sniper Elite 4

    Launches tomorrow 14 February 2017 on PC/XBONE/PS4.

    Reviews are coming out now which put it on a 79 average on Metacritic so far.

    IGN: 8.3
    GameSpot: 8.0
    GameInformer: 78
    AttackOfTheFanboy: 80.
    XboxAchievements: 85.

    Beautiful, gory, and solid sniping, but marred by inconsistent AI, and an average story.



    I have played V2, III and I have pre-ordered 4. Turn your brain off and shoot Nazis in the testicles and have a great time.

    Anyone else picking this up?

    I'm tempted too, since I watched a video of gameplay at the weekend and was very impressed!

    I was thinking of waiting and seeing how Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 reviews but previews are saying it's inconsistent so I might pick this up in the next few weeks. Love a good sniper game.

    This game is excellent, especially in co-op. The entire campaign can be played two-player but there are also survival and spotter modes that shift the focus well. The story isn't exactly Shakespeare but it is told well enough and interesting. Haven't tried the online yet but I expect it to be passable.

    Anyone know the cheapest bricks and mortar shop to get this in in Dublin? Gamestop will be selling for €74.99 which is pretty extortionate in my opinion.

    Hovering over the buy button then I realised I never finished the 3rd one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 131 ✭✭paulie13


    Actually, just ordered on amazon.co.uk for €50 (£41) for the limited edition (free skin and Fuhrer level). Can't imagine Argos or anywhere else beating that.

    Yeah but with argos it's not a lottery of whether or not your game gets delivered if Ascendia have anything to do with the shipping, unless your going the parcel motel/prime route?


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,558 ✭✭✭✭dreamers75


    Always reading about ascendia and amazon on here, never once have I had an item delivered by them and I buy a fair amount of ****e from amazon. Can I assume Ascendia do not dublin orders?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,013 ✭✭✭✭Wonda-Boy


    I found them all very very samey, I know its a sniper game but they even look the same.....might be worth getting it down the road heavily discounted.

    Day one dlc, 9.99 if you didn't pre order, and it's the Hitler stuff that was heavily featured in some of the promo stuff I saw, and from the achievement list it's substantial enough :mad:

    Not listed on Argos at the minute.

    EDIT: 64.99 in smyths

    i was going to pre order,but hmv gamecredit ****ed up and basically i got charged for 80€ credit but only received 1 working code.. and they are not exactly quick to fix stuff.. so i lost out in the pre-order bonus.. :(

    They do, I've had stuff go missing, been delayed and I've cancelled orders with Asendia/Amazon. They are very hit an miss. Miss mostly in my experience.

    I have used them before and they have worked but (in my limited experience) more often than not they haven't.

  • Registered Users Posts: 876 ✭✭✭bigphil2


    It is a far better game than Sniper Elite 3.. everything has been improved.. The MP is actually worth playing now too..
