What's it about?
In SNIPER 3D ASSASSIN: SHOOT TO KILL FPS (called Sniper 3D Gun Shooter on Android), you're a highly trained sniper tasked with killing a lot of bad people, including murderers, terrorists, and criminals. But while you're given your missions by a guy who looks like the comic book super spy Nick Fury, the game otherwise has no story; you don't really know who he is, or who you are, other than that you're a good shot and he's your commanding officer.
Is it any good?
Though it can be fun at times, this shooting game undermines itself by being too easy and way too greedy. In Sniper 3D Assassin: Shoot to Kill FPS, you're tasked with killing a bunch of terrorists, murderers, and criminals. You can also take on side quests to hunt random criminals. All of this earns you money you can use to buy better guns and gun parts, which you'll need as you progress. Though this only happens, it seems, because the game tells you that you make progress; there's not a lot of challenge to this. Often, the hardest thing about a mission is locating the target, and even this isn't that difficult, given how empty this city's streets can be, and how bad guys seem to favor red jackets and neon green Mohawks. Even worse, this game is annoyingly greedy. It runs in-game ads all the time -- including during accessing the options menu -- and constantly pressures you to spend real money on in-game currency. Which is too bad; were it not for all the commercials and the lack of any real challenge, Sniper 3D Assassin: Shoot to Kill FPS might've been a fun gun game.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about violence in games and apps. Does it matter to you that the people you're killing in this game are human, as opposed to monsters or aliens? What about the fact that they're criminals and murderers?
Talk about proximity. Does it make a difference that you're killing people from far away, as opposed to up close? Does not having to look them in the eye before you pull the trigger make you feel differently about doing so?
Discuss using money wisely. Does it bother you that this game is constantly bugging you to spend money? Does it affect how you feel when you play?
