There isn’t anything really bad about Sniper Elite V2 Remastered, but there also isn’t anything that’s particularly good either. The Remastered port itself is underwhelming, so I don’t think there’s much reason for fans of the series to take the opportunity to relive their memories of the original. Newcomers wouldn’t be making a mistake to pick up this game, but I can’t think of anything in the game that’s really worth going out of your way to check out.

It’s fortunate that the series’ brutal kill-cam’s and strategic emphasis in gameplay persist here, as it’s clear that V2 Remastered is far from complete a package the “remastered” brand might suggest. Though there’s an air of nostalgia and goodwill towards Rebellion and their continued efforts to keep this IP as entertaining as it remains, Sniper Elite V2 Remastered seems primarily focused on touching up the most selective of visual and graphical assets, and little else outside of it.

Overall Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is an acceptable update of a good game, however, a lot has happened in the last seven years and, even though we're confident that a lot of people will enjoy visiting/revisiting Berlin circa 1945, we're much more excited by the prospect of a fifth main entry that picks up where Sniper Elite 4 left off.

A very barebones remaster that is great for newcomers, but unnecessary for owners of the previous game.

The game runs smoothly in both handheld and docked modes, although when blown up on a big screen it’s harder to miss some of the technical adjustments that have been made to get Sniper Elite V2 running on Switch. There are moments where the lighting model really shines – especially at night – but maps bathed in daylight often look washed out. There’s quite a few rasterized edges and the occasional bit of blurring, but it’s nothing we haven’t seen before with similar last-generation ports.

As a fan of the Sniper Elite series, I loved going back to Sniper Elite V2. It does remind you of how far the series has moved on this generation with the third and fourth games in the franchise. This remastered version of the second game is still a worthy entry, though. It’s a great jumping in point for Switch fans before Sniper Elite 3 arrives later this year. The sniping is great, and the gruesome X-ray kill shots rarely get dull. The visuals may not be truly current-gen, but at a budget price and with a lot of content on offer, it’s forgivable. If you’re after a realistic World War II shooter, then this is your only choice.

Yet it’s still ultimately the same game as the original 2012 release, for better and worse. Newcomers may have some fun with it, and veterans may enjoy the upgrades as they wait for the next entry in the Sniper Elite franchise. But I just can’t shake the feeling that Sniper Elite V2 Remastered could have done something different to make it stand above its original release, instead of directly adjacent to it.

Sniper Elite V2 Remastered è una buona rimasterizzazione di un titolo discreto. Il peso degli anni si fa in parte sentire, e le dinamiche di gioco risentono di qualche soluzione strutturale ormai superata. Il titolo Ribellion riesce comunque, soprattutto al livello di difficoltà più elevato, a proporre una sfida accattivante anche per i cecchini dotati di una buona esperienza nel settore. Ampia promozione per il comparto tecnico, così come è apprezzabile la scelta di inserire tutti i contenuti extra e la (abbastanza divertente) componente multigiocatore.

Toch is het plezier dat je eenmaal samen hebt onbetaalbaar. Sniper Elite 2 V2 Remastered is echt een fijne titel om te spelen. We hebben het al vaker gezegd en blijven het herhalen: de Rebellion games krijgen te weinig aandacht en de ontwikkelaar verdient veel meer liefde ĂŠn support.Het is jammer dat de game niet meer op elk punt goed uit de verf komt, maar het is een aanrader om te spelen voor jou en je favoriete co-op partner. Nicht schiessen? Natuurlijk wel. Gewoon al die vijanden afknallen, alsof het niets is. Met plezier.
