Sniper Elite 3 lets you pay to kill Hitler now

Now that Sniper Elite 3's been out for a few weeks, anyone that's developed an adequately itchy trigger finger can set their crosshairs on a significantly more prominent figure. Adolf Hitler's the target this time, and he's k...

Download Sniper Elite V2 for free on Steam

Rebellion is letting Steam users download its World War II shooter Sniper Elite V2 for free and yes, you get to keep it "forever." The 24-hour promotion is good until tomorrow at 10:00am Pacific.

Sniper Elite V2 is that game in which you can shoot people and watch an x-ray replay of bones shattering, hearts popping, and eyes exploding. In fact, I just learned via YouTube tutorial how to land a nut shot on Hitler -- because that's a thing you're allowed to do.

This is a game I'd likely never buy, but download for free? Sure.

Preview: Revisiting 1945 in Sniper Elite V2

Given how popular sniping has become in shooters these days, it's rather odd that there haven't been many games focusing on this mechanic. There have been a few here and there, sure, and you may have even seen a sniper cabinet at your local Dave & Buster's, but the genre still hasn't seen the same success as your typical run-and-gun war title.

Rebellion Games is looking to change this by revisiting their Sniper Elite franchise with Sniper Elite V2, which places you in the boots of a lone sniper during World War II. If you have been getting a bit exhausted by the current barrage of modern shooters, Sniper Elite V2 looks to provide a refreshing throwback.

Review: NeverDead photo
Review: NeverDead
by Jim Sterling

When creating a videogame protagonist with a particular super power, there's an extra responsibility to create a challenging, rewarding sense of balance. If your hero has enhanced strength and speed, how do you keep enemy opponents threatening without undermining the player's advantages? If your character cannot die, what elements can be introduced in order to maintain a believable conflict? 

NeverDead is a game that does not ask these questions. In fact, it uses the invincibility of its protagonist as an excuse to cut corners and ignore even the most basic factors of game balance. After sitting through the end credits of NeverDead, I am proud to say I did something that developer Rebellion did not do ...

I finished the game.

New Sniper Elite V2 videos are looking good

Back in 2005, a little game called Sniper Elite was released on the original Xbox, PS2 and PC. With a name as silly as that, many weren't expecting much from the third-person shooter which placed an emphasis on stealth....

Judge Dredd kicks some undead arse on iOS

Most of the time when I see police officers, they are asking gangs of youths to go somewhere else, or looking at me suspiciously because a man with a beard must have something to hide. Mega-City One's top lawman, Judge Dredd...
