Review: If you ask me ‘Sniper Elite VR’ is yet another example of a big name game company not fully getting nor understanding VR and making a half-arsed game because of it. Once again I had really high hopes for this game, after all, it is supposed to be a AAA open-world stealth shooter. But what you get is a series of small levels none of which give you a feeling of an open-world game. Most of the time you will be in the same position without any kind of exploring. Sure, it looks the part for most of the game, but it never feels like the big grand game it is supposed to be.

For me, the game feels rushed and not really cared about, but when you are paying £22.99 you want that level of polish. The game even has the gameplay hours to justify the price, just not the level of shine we all might have wanted. Sure there are a few other bugs and glitches but nothing that can’t easily be fixed. While I do recommend this game I also recommend you hold off buying it just a little while for an update or two.
