Sniper Elite – most people who love sniping games are familiar with this name. It's all about sniping. It has always been about that. There are only a handful of games that are solely focused on sniping missions. Heck, you can easily count those games on hand as they are scarce. The thing is, as much as it's fun to snipe people from afar, there is a certain risk attached with this gene that not a lot of people will buy this game. This is true to some extent unfortunately.
Sniper Elite series
Look what happened with Sniper Elite 1 and 2. Weren't they good games with some controlled sniping? Yes they were, but they never tapped their true potential due to the lack of budget. They could have easily done it had you and I bought this game. But they couldn't even sell a million copy of the first game. It was disappointing for them as they would have liked to reap more reward for their years of hard work and persistence.
Mind you, it's not an easy job to create games, especially the sniping genre. You have to account for the precision and test rifles in real life. Otherwise, there are always going to be some people who'd complaining how it feels totally different from a real life fun. Not only it's costly to make a game, but it takes a lot of time as well. So what happens when the game fails to break even? Most companies stop making those games and move on to something that'd be less risky and time-consuming. Thankfully though, nothing like that happened with this game and they went on to make the sequel. While it was mediocre, it still was amazing in one thing we care for – sniping.
