this game should not be Rated M

This game is amazing you can turn x ray kill cam off and the only swearing in the game is stuff like s**t I am a christian too and I think anybody who is 9 and up should play this. plus it's a good ww2 learning experience if you don't want your kids hearing stuff like s**t just mute the TV

Is It Any Good?

For those who missed it the first time, this visually updated version of the 2012 World War II stealth action shooter is a sneaky good time. Like the original, Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a third-person shooter that tasks you with taking out high-value targets working on Germany's rocket program. To do so, you must use stealth, a variety of guns and explosives, and a lot of luck to infiltrate an area, locate the target, eliminate it, and get out without being shot yourself. Good thing you have a sniper rifle, a machine gun, a silenced pistol, and a lot of rocks you can toss to distract your enemies. Along with a story-driven campaign you can play solo or with friends, this also boasts some online multiplayer modes (unless you play on Switch, in which case you can only play solo).

As for what's new in this collection, aside from bringing it to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch for the first time, it also boasts fully upgraded graphics, including for people who have 4K TVs. It also expands the multiplayer modes to accommodate up to 16 players, adds multiplayer characters from the Zombie Army spin-off series, and includes all of the extra missions that were added later, including "Assassinate the Fuhrer," in which you get to gently place a bullet in Hitler's skull. Granted, even with all the added missions, this isn't as good as the far more varied Sniper Elite III or the even more compelling Sniper Elite 4. And since it doesn't add anything new, it's not worth buying if you've already played the original. But if you haven't, and you'd like to shoot people while being sneaky, Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is a challenging and rewarding chance to kill some Nazis who aren't paying attention.
