Sniper Elite 5 emphasizes player agency with another thrilling sandbox that excels when you’re looking down the scope.

Slightly above average or simply inoffensive. Fans of the genre should enjoy them a bit, but a fair few will be left unfulfilled.

Sniper Elite 5 is held back by a presentation stuck in the past and a forgettable story. Ultimately well-designed missions, player freedom, and great moment-to-moment gameplay win out. Resulting in a game that is fun on your own or with a friend.
