Welcome to Sniper, the newest game to challenge Sniper Elite for the top spot in it's genre
In all seriousness, this is as basic and simple as gameplay can get for this kind of game. The controls are clunky and the graphics are blocky. Enemies don't even pay attention to dead bodies laying around. You can snipe an enemy next to another one and he won't even react. There is no in game menu so if you want to restart like I had to do when suddenly my character was stuck in a corner and wouldn't move, you'll have to hold the PS button and quit out that way.
The entire game takes place in a very small, town like area and is played by rounds, where each round you have a certain amount of time and certain number of enemies you need to locate and snipe. Each round the number of enemies increase. You also have a pistol on you but I've found no reason for it. Although I did notice that the pistol will shoot enemies from just as far a distance then the rifle does. Even more strange is when you get the slow motion kill cam, you will notice that your pistol is shooting rifle ammo . Your two ways of failing is either running out of time or being spotted.
From what should be expected from a tiny little game like this, I found it to actually be kind of fun. The slow motion kill cam is pretty cool. The price of $9.99 is a little high for only six trophies and no platinum though. Although it can be pretty difficult sometimes to find the last couple enemies in each round before the timer runs out, it's still very doable. I think it just comes down to how lucky you get with the game either deciding to put the enemies in the open area or in and around the the taller buildings.
* There is a red arrow on the top of your screen that points you in the general direction of all the enemies. Although be careful about relying on this because sometimes there can be enemies a lot closer and off to the side of where the arrow is pointing. For the most part though, they will be bunched up in a single area but sometimes there's some drifters.
* There are mountains on most edges of the map. You can climb up on these and have a huge view advantage to spot the enemies. Most of the time, it's almost impossible to find them when your on ground level with them. You can also use houses in the area to climb to a second or third floor but I found my field of vision to be obstructed most of the time.
* Always reload your rifle when you have the chance. Too many times I would finally spot an enemy and try to take a shot and instead have to reload.
* When trying to locate where the enemies are, I found the best strategy is to look in the general direction, not in scope mode, very close to my tv. Since nothing in the game moves at all except the enemies, if you concentrate closely to your screen, a lot of times you can make out there movement.
