    "Looking at how far the series has come, I am still impressed by how gritty and realistic even the first Sniper: Ghost Warrior was. Ithas such a high replay value and I can't help but go back to it even after two more games have been released in the series. I also don't think you'll find better sniper mechanics than this game. 100% Recommend!"

    "The mechanics in this game are rather bothersome. The story line is boring and it doesn't always register your kills. You can't skip the dialog even if you've heard it before. Just THINKING about playing this game gives me a headache. Don't let my suffering be in vain. Skip this one."

    "Good, classic fun when you are in the mood to shoot German soldiers from WW2. The game is a little short - I would have played more and was actually surprised to reach the end so soon. But it works. Not my favorite game because I don't find the screenplay very creative, but it does what it says it will do - fair enough. I'd give more points for the realistic and satisfying shooting interface that makes you feel like you're actual a good shot. Less points for the cartoonish gory explosions of blood and brains. Just not my favorite, but I know some who loooooove it."

    "Sniper Elite 4 is probably one of Steam's better sniper or tactical shooter games. It really compels you to take your time and think about what you are doing, and is considerably more realistic than the average game of this type. One downside is that the single player can be a bit short, but is also kind of repetitive at the same time, which is not terribly surprising, when you consider the role you play in the game. That said, I'd definitely recommend it to those looking for a more thoughtful shooter instead of the overly fast pace, overwhelming "bullet hell" experience of many modern FPS games (though the game is not necessarily an FPS).

    "What I really like about SGW3 is how you can choose from three different play styles and completely alter how you experience the game. I think the sniper way of playing is the best and that's why I agree with SGW3 on this list."

    "Great game! I'll be honest, I was introduced to this franchise when I saw the godawful movie adaptation in a busted up cinema in Colorado so I wasn't expecting much. However, it managed to really impress me. Sniping isn't a main attraction in the game but when it shows up, it's astounding!"
