Game description: Sniper Elite sets you in the midst of the end of World War II. As an OSS-trained sniper you must disguise yourself as a German soldier and stop the Russians from stealing nuclear secrets from Berlin. Through 28 levels, you can use your stealth and sniping skills to take out sentries, machine gun nests, and guard posts. Sniper Elite incorporates elevation, wind speed, posture, background noise, and a host of other factors into the sniping experience. Sniper Elite also includes cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes.
The game follows protagonist Karl Fairburne as he attempts to prevent the Soviet Union taking control of Germany's nuclear secrets in and around Berlin in April 1945. Very little information is known about his background, other than he was raised in Berlin before the war broke out, that he studied at West Point shortly after America's entrance into the war, and the fact that he was chosen for this mission because the city was his childhood home.
