The story in the game is well fleshed out. It is a fictional story about if the Nazis took over the world after WWII, which is not a new premise, but has so many little touches that really create an immersive story that the player cares about. This is where the animation and voice acting of the game comes into play, with things like subtle eye rolls or twirling of thumbs to inflections in a characters voice. It gives a sense that these people in the story are real and when complimented with a well written plot, it makes for a great experience. See More
Taking your time to sneak up to a vantage point and line up your sniper scope with the enemy's head pays off in Sniper Elite 4. Avoiding detection and sticking to high points will be your best bet for stealth gameplay, with options to climb up buildings or sneak through shrubbery or behind walls to get to where you need to be. If you're spotted, you can pull out a handgun and dispatch enemies that way, but it's not as efficient as sniping enemies from a safe distance and remaining undetected. See More
Your starter gear will likely stay with you throughout the entire game, as new guns you receive don't have too many boosts in power or precision. At most, you may choose another gun because of the way it looks, such as a camoflauge skin or an all-black rifle instead. See More
Sniper Elite 4 puts you in large, open sandbox levels with the freedom to achieve your objective in any way you want. If you're tasked with dispatching enemy units on the map, you can choose to take out the commander first to confuse everyone and lower their morale, or you can take everyone out one by one as you locate them. You can shoot at explosive barrels to eliminate a group of enemies all at once, aim for the engine of a vehicle for an ever bigger explosion, or go in guns blazing without stealth or sniper rifles.

Sniper Elite 4 doesn't do much with its story beyond telling you where to go in order to kill more Nazis. The plot doesn't try to make any commentary on the necessity of war, and it doesn't do enough with groups like the Italian Resistance or the mafia. You won't find anything new or groundbreaking here with the writing or narrative. See More
While killing enemies, the camera will slow down as the bullet crosses the map, outlining the target's skeleton and internal organs in an X-Ray view to show you exactly how the shot goes through them. Lining up the perfect sniper shot and watching as the bullet crosses the map and crushes through the enemy's skeleton and flesh is a visceral experience. The movement of the camera as it zooms in and captures the spattering blood and cracking bones is the most unique part of the gameplay. Getting to see that level of detail reinforces the importance of every shot, making each bullet more valuable. See More
Sometimes the enemy AI is smart, calling in backup to surround you once you're spotted, or making clever sweeps throughout your last known location to find you. But other times, the enemy will stare right at you from only a few feet away, or remain knelt behind cover without noticing you dispatching other units right next to them. See More
There are four difficulty levels: Cadet, Marksman, Sniper Elite, and Authentic, with the real challenges and unique changes starting at Sniper Elite. At this setting, there's no aim assist, and shots that are longer than 300 meters are much harder to pull off due to realistic ballistics in each sniper rifle. The Authentic difficulty ramps things up even more, with no aim assist and no UI elements on the interface. See More
While the multiplayer is fairly decent as a whole, the War Mode is the most noteworthy aspect of it. It's a narrative driven multiplayer mode where one team must complete objectives such as repairing a bridge, sabotaging equipment, destroying gun emplacements, and so forth, while the other team tries to stop them. This is a welcome deviation from the usual "run around a map in circles and shoot everyone" type of gameplay, giving you a very focused multiplayer mode that rewards teamwork, which can be really engaging even to players that aren't into competitive shooters.

Call of Duty: WWII is yet another game that is plagued by microtransactions, allowing players to buy in-game currency point bundles priced from $2 up to $100. While it can be a means to sustain development for new content and updates in other games, CoD: WWII will just get replaced by the next installment within a year, so it's just a means to up the profit margin by milking players via their loot box addiction.

The campaign focuses on a US marine's journey through WWII, taking you to many well-known battles of the war such as D-Day, Liberation of Paris, and even Battle of the Bulge. It's an excellent mix of interesting main characters, well-written dialogue, excellent action set pieces, dramatic moments, and some unexpected twists along the way. Even though the campaign might last you only about 6 hours, it's still thoroughly enjoyable, giving you a very interactive movie-like experience. See More
Some guns such as the STG-44 or the BAR are a cut above the rest, allowing you to kill enemies quicker and from further away than their counterparts. If you switch to an inferior gun, the difference is painfully obvious, making gameplay much harder for you. This is mostly because a slight difference in weapon damage and range can determine if you live or die in multiplayer. As a result, experimenting with other weapons feels unrewarding, causing every player to default to the good weapons. See More
Even though there are no gimmicks like jetpacks or wall-running, the gameplay in CoD: WWII is all-around solid. The controls are responsive, the aiming is fluid, and each gun handles really well. Whether you're blasting enemy soldiers with your shotgun up close or if you're picking them off with your sniper rifle from afar, it feels great. It's the type of gameplay that can grab the interest of most players and keep them coming back for more. See More
