Sniper Elite V2 Remastered Review: A War Dog Losing Its Bite https://www.gameskinny.com/neg4r/sniper-elite-v2-remastered-review-a-war-dog-losing-its-bite https://www.gameskinny.com/neg4r/sniper-elite-v2-remastered-review-a-war-dog-losing-its-bite Thu, 16 May 2019 10:18:50 -0400 Jonathan Moore

In review, a lot has changed since Sniper Elite V2 originally released in 2012. Back then, the quasi-remake of the original Sniper Elite presented a tactical World War 2 experience from the lens of stealth. While other shooters set in the Second World War had stealth elements and infiltration missions, most had become more focused on the terrifying, yet more marketable, front-line violence. 

Sniper Elite V2 slowed things down. Through the lens of the lone wolf, players gained a new perspective into the war's waning days. For some, it was the perfect marriage of games like Metal Gear Solid and Medal of Honor, Syphon Filter and Call of Duty. A more surgical experience, Sniper Elite V2 might have been niche, but it had a firm place in the shooter genre. 

Enter Sniper Elite V2 Remastered. Boasting enhanced graphics and all of the original's DLC, Remastered seeks to rechamber the bullet that started it all. However, it does so with varying effect. This is, after all, a remaster and not a remake

Similar to the Onimusha remaster earlier this year, it's certain that V2 Remastered will be criticized for its "outdatedness." Missions are linear and the save system byzantine. Sniper Elite V2 Remastered is, in fact, an old game with a new skin. 

But in our review of the game, that didn't make it any less fun. 

Karl runs through dark, ruined streets in Sniper Elite V2 Remastered

Players take the role of master sniper Lieutenant Karl Fairburne in his quest to stop the Nazi V2 rocket program from swinging the tide of the war. In propagandistic fashion, the story is trite and cliched, and you'll experience few if any surprises along the way. We've seen this sort of tale before in countless films and video game franchises. 

All you need to know is that Nazis (and some Russian combatants) need killin'. Of course, you're the one to do it. 

Gameplay mostly centers around you and your rifle. As you progress through the game's 10 story missions, you come across several rifles, including a Mosin Nagant and a Gewehr 43. Neither truly seem to provide any appreciable benefits over the other, and you only change between them because the story dictates it.

In addition to sniper rifles, you have access to a Thompson submachine gun and a silenced pistol called a Welrod. The Thompson comes in handy in a pinch, although burst fire is the only "accurate" way of hitting anything, and the Welrod comes in handy during stealth situations but is woefully inaccurate if fired from more than a few feet away from your target. 

As with other stealth games, you can also distract guards by throwing rocks, blow up groups of soldiers with grenades, and set traps with dynamite, trip wires, and mines. 

You have some choice in how you dispatch the enemies in your path, but you won't find the options/loadouts/skill trees provided by most modern games. Even those in Sniper Elite 3 and Sniper Elite 4 are (unsurprisingly) more robust.  

The X-ray killshot cam is still awesome in this version of the game.

Despite such a small armory, shooting a rifle in V2 Remastered still feels fantastic seven years later. On Cadet difficulty, simply lining up a shot and pulling the trigger often does the trick. That's especially true if you kneel and empty your lungs beforehand. 

However, Sniper truly shines on its higher difficulties. Here, shots are more strategic and tactical. Most require patience and restraint, with all taking windage and drop into account. In these moments, you feel most like the methodical, skilled sniper you're portrayed to be. 

That feeling intensifies when Remastered's X-ray killcam comes in to play. Sure it's old and now a staple of the series, but that doesn't mean it feels any less invigorating. There's nothing quite like the cornucopia of blood and bone that explodes from the backend of a well-placed shot. 

Watching your bullet spiral through the air looks better this time around, too. Gone is the weird-looking airwave spiraling behind the bullet from the original. A small tweak, but one that makes the world just a tad more visceral. 

The biggest "upgrade" in V2 Remastered is, unsurprisingly, the game's graphics. The comparison trailer above does a good job of showcasing what Rebellion's done, but I can't sit here and say the graphics are a huge improvement over the original. 

For the most part, the game looks fantastic. Character models are smoother, although they show their age. Karl's fatigues aren't as muddy as they once were, and thankfully, his hair doesn't remind me of Bela Lugosi's in White Zombie anymore. But these improvements aren't game-changers. 

Guns now have more accurate color palettes, with the game's rifles switching from the original's muddier tones to brighter ones here. Vehicles now look a touch more detailed, with better-defined edges and angles. But these improvements aren't game changers. 

Where the graphics are seemingly most refined, though, are in its environments and lighting. Now, stages have more rubble in the streets or piled against buildings; individual pieces are more easily recognizable, looking less like muddy globs and more like defined shapes. In this version, cobblestone looks more like cobblestone, wood more like wood, and foliage more like foliage. 

Since light and shadow play such integral roles in stealth games, it's good to see those have been improved as well. Street lights cast more uniform glows and lightning illuminates environments in more realistic tones. The most noticeable differences aren't in the game's many fires, but in the night and evening levels, where light creeps over the horizon or through slatted windows. 

Playing an intense game of team deathmatch in game's church level

I never played multiplayer in the original Sniper Elite V2, so I can't make comparisons to Remastered. However, I can say that MP in Remastered is smooth. Servers aren't bustling a day after launch, but finding matches in both competitive and cooperative play is easy. 

Overall, connections are good, load times are adequate, and lag is nearly non-existent. Maps aren't teeming with players, but in a game predicated on stealth and patience, that's a welcome change from the frenetic online battles found in other games. 

Moment to moment, competitive play is some of the most stressful and nerve-wracking I've ever experienced. Playing with a group of like-minded snipers is long and laborious but extremely rewarding, especially considering the game's old-school mechanics. Along with the campaign's higher difficulties, this is where SEV2 Remastered feels the most like a sniper simulator. 

However, I enjoy co-op in SEV2 Remastered the most. I'm a sucker for taking on the A.I. with another human player, so I'm biased here. Playing the campaign and the game's various challenge modes with another player opens up new strategic avenues, and I can only wish local co-op was an option. 

Karl hides from a tank in the ruined streets of Berlin

Pros:
  • Lighting and shadows upgrades really make the world pop
  • X-ray killcam is still as cool as ever
  • Shooting a rifle feels fantastic
  • Comes with all SE2 DLC
Cons:
  • While nice, the graphics aren't a monumental improvement
  • Run-and-gun controls still suck
  • No manual save feature
  • Can't skip cutscenes

For those that already have Sniper Elite V2 and its DLC, it's hard to recommend Remastered, especially at the $9.99 upgrade price. There's just not much new here. Running the original V2 at 4K 60fps provides a similar graphical experience; Remastered looks great, but its graphics aren't leagues better. And the gameplay is essentially the same. 

If you already have the game in your Steam library, you're essentially paying $9.99 for a skin upgrade. That changes if you don't have the game's DLC or want to play multiplayer on servers that are bound to live longer than those of the original. 

But for those that have never played Sniper Elite V2, this is the perfect way to experience a classic, blemishes and all. Remastered is a throwback. Having read forums and conjecture on social media, I cannot stress enough this is a remaster not a remake. 

What was "wrong" with the original Sniper V2 is still "wrong" here. It doesn't have the quality of life improvements we've come to expect of third-person shooters — or even the Sniper series after games like SE3 and SE4

That fact alone doesn't make it any less fun, but it does mean it's wise to temper expectations before deploying to World War II Berlin once again.

All Gold Bar Locations in Sniper Elite V2 Remastered https://www.gameskinny.com/v1jp2/all-gold-bar-locations-in-sniper-elite-v2-remastered https://www.gameskinny.com/v1jp2/all-gold-bar-locations-in-sniper-elite-v2-remastered Mon, 13 May 2019 10:02:16 -0400 Jonathan Moore

Sniper Elite V2 Remastered has two different types of collectibles: gold bars and wine bottles. Just as in the original Sniper Elite V2, there are only 37 wine bottles in the game, there are 100 gold bars. 

Of course, some gold locations are harder to find than others, with some levels being particularly troublesome. Find them all, though, and you'll be rewarded with the Gold Rush trophy/achievement

This guide will show you exactly where to find each gold bar in the game. We break things down by mission, providing screenshots for every location. The video at the top of this guide will also show you how to snag them as well if that's easier. We did speed the video up just a tad since it was originally 58 minutes and figured you'd rather not sit through it all. 

If you're looking for all of the game's wine bottles, we have a guide for that as well. If you want to see why we said the game is starting to show its age, be sure to head over to our V2 Remastered review

Mission 1: Schoneberg Convoy

Mission 1 Schoneberg Convoy gold bar 1 Sniper Elite V2 Remastered

Gold Bar 1

From the beginning of the level, kill the first enemy. Continue past him, staying to the left of the truck. Hug the side of the street and continue forward, minding the two soldiers standing the middle of the road. Go into the building ahead with the propaganda poster on it.

Once inside, go straight back and follow the path to the right. When the path ends, the gold bar is between the fireplace on the left side of the room and the sink in the back left corner of the room.

Mission 1 Schoneberg Convoy gold bar 2

Gold Bar 2

From the first gold bar, go back out to the street and take a left. Take out the soldier, and go toward the objective marker. Once inside the next house, take an immediate left. The gold bar is along the back left wall. It is on top of a dresser across from the bed.

Mission 1 Schoneberg Convoy gold bar 3

Gold Bar 3

From the last gold bar, continue toward the objective by going upstairs. Follow the path and kill the patrolling guard. Go right and drop down to the left in the next room.

Mission 1 Schoneberg Convoy gold bar 4

Mission 1 Schoneberg Convoy gold bar 8

Gold Bar 8

Enter the next area and stay on the left side of the street. Follow the street almost all the way down. Eventually, you'll see a bistro on the right side of the street, as well as the car on which you’re supposed to attach an explosive. Go into the building to your left, just across from it.

Once inside, immediately turn right, then left. When you enter the second room, turn left. There is a small armoire and a briefcase on the ground. The gold bar is on the ground behind the briefcase.

Mission 1 Schoneberg Convoy gold bar 9

Gold Bar 9

When you reach the top of the building (just before climbing up to the vantage point), go through the door ahead of you, past the ammo cache. Turn left and go into the room ahead. Just inside the room, there is a chair to the left. The gold bar is on the chair.

Mission 1 Schoneberg Convoy gold bar 10

Gold Bar 10

Take out the target and the remaining enemies. Once the area is clear, take a right from the vantage point, go through the door, through the whole in the wall ahead, and descend toward the street.

At the first drop down, turn around and go through the door. The gold bar is just inside the door to the right.

Mission 2: Mittelwerk Facility

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility gold bar 1

Gold Bar 1

From the first tower, go to the house on the right (the one closest to the V2 rockets being fired). If you go in the back of the building, look immediately to your left upon entering. The gold will be in the toilet. If you come in from the front, turn left, go past the bunks, and then turn right to find the toilet.

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility gold bar 2

Gold Bars 2

If you come in the back of the house, go past the first gold bar and through the bunk area. The gold bar is next to a lamp and phone on the desk.

If you come in the front of the building, immediately turn right and go into the room with the desk.

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility gold bar 3

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility gold bar 6

Gold Bar 6

From the last gold bar, follow the corridor and cross the first major intersection into Corridor 38. Keep going down until you reach a cargo elevator on your right. The gold bar is behind the boxes in the elevator. 

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility gold bar 7

Gold Bar 7

From there, go back into Corridor 38 and continue down (go right out of the elevator). At the end of Corridor 38, turn left and continue down to Corridor 39. Once in Corridor 39, take the second entrance on the left. The gold is next to a lamp on a desk in the back.

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility gold bar 8

Gold Bar 8

For these next three gold bars, you’ll need to plant the explosives in the previous section to move forward to Schwaiger’s Office. Go toward the office, and go to the top of the scaffolding on the right side. At the very top, go to the V2 rocket in the middle. The gold bar is on the ground next to a toolbox.

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility gold bar 9

Gold Bar 9

Go to the scaffolding on the other side. However, only go up the stairs once (to the middle level). Turn right and go to the far end.

Looking at the office, the gold is on the ground at the end of the scaffolding next to a toolbox.

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility gold bar 10

Gold Bar 10

This gold bar is in the office. You have to trigger the story section to get it off the desk in the far back-left corner of the room.

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum 

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum gold bar 1

Gold Bar 1

When you start the level, you’ll be in a house above an open area full of Russian soldiers. Jump down from the house and make your way into the open area to reach the objective ahead.

Once you reach the open area, there is a line of buildings on your left. Enter the first building you come to. Once inside, take the first right. Continue straight down the hallway and into the next room. The gold bar is underneath the painting of the soldier on a horse. 

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum gold bar 2

Gold Bar 2

Continue down the street toward the objective. When you enter the next house, immediately turn right. Go through the room into the next. Turn left to find the gold bar on the small armoire inside.

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum gold bar 3

Gold Bar 3

From the second gold bar, take the stairs down into the cellar. Kill the two guards and go outside. Follow the alleyway. As you round the corner, you’ll see a guard at the far end. You can go ahead and snipe him without alerting anyone.

When you reach the door at the end of the alleyway, there is a box sitting beside it. The gold bar is on the ground behind the box.

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum gold bar 4

Gold Bar 4

Go inside the building and up the stairs. There is a truck backed up to the door. There is a room to the left and a guard. Just inside the room on the left-hand side is the fourth gold bar. It’s sitting on the ground.

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum gold bar 5

Gold Bar 5

From there, go upstairs and grab the Mosin Nagant. After the cutscene, the truck that was blocking the door before will be gone. Go across the street and climb into the first window. Go straight ahead and then turn right. Climb up and go straight, then climb up again. Turn right. The gold bar is to the left of the stairwell.

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum gold bar 6

Gold Bar 6

Go down to plant the explosives on the bridge. However, before you do so, look for the crane near the bridge. The gold bar is on the ground right in front of it.

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum gold bar 7

Gold Bar 7

This gold bar is inside the museum. There’s no easy way to get to this one if you’re sneaking. You just have to be slow and methodical. However, we will tell you the shortest path to it.

When you enter the museum, turn left. Follow the path all the way down. Turn right and vault through the opening. Vault through the next opening on your left, go behind the two statues, and vault through yet another opening in front of you. Turn left, vault through another opening, and find the gold bar on the ground in front of a statue bust.

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum gold bar 8

Gold Bar 8

Climb to the top of the museum and destroy the bridge. Now climb down and take out the two Nazi soldiers that stand in your way. The boarded up gap on the right side of the hall is now open.

Kill the German soldiers and descend the scaffolding to the street below. Cross the bridge and turn right immediately. The next gold bar is in front of the second crane next to the river below.

Mission 3: Kaiser-Friedrich Museum gold bar 9

Gold Bar 9

As you make your way toward the objective from the river, you’ll quickly run into another contingent of Nazis. Some will be on foot, while others will man machine guns in the back of the area. Kill them all, then go to the ruined building on the right-hand side.

Go inside and pass the stairs. Go through the next doorway and turn left. The gold bar is on the ground.

All Wine Bottle Locations in Sniper Elite V2 Remastered https://www.gameskinny.com/2rzxz/all-wine-bottle-locations-in-sniper-elite-v2-remastered https://www.gameskinny.com/2rzxz/all-wine-bottle-locations-in-sniper-elite-v2-remastered Mon, 13 May 2019 10:02:29 -0400 Jonathan Moore

As expected, Sniper Elite V2 Remastered has quite a few collectibles. Just like the original Sniper Elite V2, each mission has two separate types: wine bottles and gold bars. 

Finding wine bottles in V2 Remastered is just as vexing as it was in the original game. Indeed, some locations are harder to find than others. Finding them all will give you the Jungle Juice trophy/achievement

This guide will show you exactly where to find each wine bottle in the game. We break things down by mission, providing screenshots for every location. The video at the top of this guide will also show you where to find the wine bottles if that's easier. We did speed the video up just a tad since it was originally 22 minutes and figured you'd rather not sit through it all. 

If you're looking for all of the game's gold bars, we have a guide for that, too. Be sure to check out our review of V2 Remastered to see why we said the sniper sim is starting to show its age. 

Prologue

Prologue wine bottle location

There is only one wine bottle in the prologue mission. Once you’ve taken out the target and have escaped the tank, you’ll come to a square full of patrolling guards. Make your way past them and climb the stairs toward the objective marker.

When you reach the top of the stairs, look to the building directly across the square. Look through the window in the middle. You’ll see the wine bottle sitting on top of a cupboard.

Mission 1: Schoneberg Convoy

Mission 1 Schoneberg Convoy wine bottle 1 Sniper Elite V2 Remastered

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility wine bottle 2

Wine Bottle 2

From the same tower, take out all of the guards in the square below. After doing so, descend the tower and go to the house on the left. There is a guard patrolling in front of it. Kill him, and go all the way down to the end. Look in the window to find the second wine bottle next to a lamp on the desk.

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility wine bottle 3

Wine Bottle 3

Once you enter the bunker (Nord Tunnel), go past the machine gun nest. Continue straight and cross the first major intersection. You’ll be going into corridor 38 (a big, white 38 will be painted on the wall).

Go to the next intersection, minding the guards along the way. Turn right as soon as you exit. Look past the small crane and ladder to see the wine bottle resting on a cart in the distance (the cart has a big white tank on it).

Mission 2 Mittelwerk Facility wine bottle 4

Wine Bottle 4

For these next two wine bottles, you’ll need to plant the explosives in the previous section to move forward to Schwaiger’s Office.

Go toward the office (the main objective marker). Before you go up the stairs to go up to the office, turn around and look at the scaffolding on the far side of the hall. There will be a V2 rocket with scaffolding on the right and left side. Look at the top of the right-hand scaffolding to find the wine bottle.

Continue until you get to the next objective, the assassination. During the cutscene, you’ll see the wine bottle on a broken piece of wall.

Once you regain control, the wine bottle is obscured by a Wehrmacht soldier. Kill the SS officer trying assassinate Schwaiger as quickly as possible, which will keep you from having to restart a checkpoint and make the soldier move. Then take your shot at the bottle.

Mission 5: St. Olibartus Church

The wine bottle is on a broken beam out in the middle, just in front of you.

Mission 5 St. Olibartus Church wine bottle 3

Wine Bottle 3

Mission 5 St. Olibartus Church wine bottle 4

Wine Bottle 4

When you reach the top of the bell tower, you’ll get a Gewehr 43. As soon as the cutscene ends, enemies will swarm the area below the tower. However, there is a sniper shooting at you from the building straight across from you.

Although it was announced just a few weeks ago, Sniper Elite V2 Remastered now has an official release date. The game will launch in both digital and physical formats on May 14 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. It will release digitally for the PC on the same date. 

The game is currently available for pre-order on PC and PS4 at various retailers, including Steam. Xbox One and Nintendo Switch pre-orders will go live on April 24. 

While the game will cost $34.99, those who pre-order V2 Remastered will receive a 10% discount whether they buy it digitally or physically. Players that already own the original version of Sniper Elite V2 on PC can upgrade to the remastered version for $9.99. 

Announced alongside Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition and a yet-to-be-named Sniper Elite 4 sequel, the remastered version of the series' 2012 entry will feature 4K support and HDR support for the PC, PS4, and XB1, as well as updated graphics for many in-game models.

According to Rebellion, the game's developer, this version of Sniper Elite V2 will specifically see upgrades to rendering, post-processing, textures, geometry, and lighting. Many of those updates can be seen in the side-by-side graphics comparison video at the top of this article. 

Additionally, players will also find that Sniper Elite V2 Remastered will include a photo mode, seven new playable characters from the Zombie Army spinoff series, and all of "the additional content ever released for the game" for free.

Finally, the V2 Remastered will support 16-player online multiplayer, up from four-player in the original version; worthy of note is that the Nintendo Switch version will only support 8-player online multiplayer. 

When it originally, released, Sniper Elite V2 received average marks from critics and fans alike. While it's true that the series slightly improved with Sniper Elite 3 and took larger steps with Sniper Elite 4, V2 has cultivated a fervent following within the fanbase over the years. 

As of this writing, Sniper Elite V2 has a "Very Positive" rating on Steam, even if it is no longer available for purchase as the release of Remastered looms.

It has been over two years since Rebellion released Sniper Elite 4, the company's BAFTA-nominated stealth shooter, and some fans are certain to be excitedly awaiting a followup. Fortunately for these players, a recent announcement from the studio has not only confirmed that Sniper Elite 5 is on the horizon, but that three other Sniper Elite projects are in the works as well.

The first of these projects is Sniper Elite V2 Remastered, the "visually definitive version" of the 2012 tactical shooter, and it is set for release on PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One in 2019. This remaster will feature improved graphics, 4K resolution and HDR support, and enhanced content, ranging from additional playable characters to an expanded multiplayer mode that will allow up to 16 players to compete online.

Additionally, fans of the series can look forward to the Switch release of Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition in 2019, which will include the base game and all of its post-launch content. The Ultimate Edition will also support Switch-exclusive local wireless multiplayer and utilize the console's motion controls.

While these two titles are all that Sniper Elite fans can expect to play this year, Rebellion has promised details on a third project before the close of 2019 — a project that the company has revealed as a "new, standalone Sniper Elite game for VR devices." It has additionally been noted that this VR title is being developed in collaboration with Just Add Water, a British studio known for its work on Oddworld.

Finally, the announcement that is likely to be the most exciting of the bunch is that players can look forward to receiving details on the "upcoming mainline Sniper Elite game" in 2020. This is to be Sniper Elite 5, which Rebellion describes as "the next major title in the Sniper Elite series."

Indeed, it seems that fans of stealth shooters in general, and Sniper Elite in particular, have a lot to look forward to. While some may be disappointed that details on Sniper Elite 5 are still a year away, there will certainly be many opportunities for tactical assassinations across the other three projects to occupy them in the meantime, not to mention Sniper Elite 4
